Genre: Romantic Comedy
My campaign manager says no one wants a bachelor in the White House and this election is drawing near. The solution? To hold a cattle call, and what’s up for auction? Me.
Lucky for me I cross paths with Mandy Buchanan—a feisty blonde who isn’t afraid to call me a jerk to my face. But she’s in quite the predicament herself. Mandy needs money since her dad refuses to pay for a frivolous degree. So, we strike a bargain.
I get a wife, and she gets her degree.
The deal was simple. No complications. No problems.
While Mandy pretends to be the perfect First Lady, I start noticing her in a way that has nothing to do with politics or practicality. Those curves. Her eyes. The way her face lights up when she talks about her work. She’s beautiful.
Suddenly she’s no longer just a pawn to help me get into the White House. She’s more than that, and I no longer want to play pretend. I want her to be mine in every way.
Now I just need to convince her that our sham marriage might just be the real deal.

Great political romance. His First Lady is a quirky romance novel that dives deep into politics. While the oil overall story has a strong political theme, the underlying story is more. I really enjoyed this novel.
What do you look for in a First Lady? Eric Martinez is asking himself just that. He doesn't need a love connection. Just an arrangement to help him win the presidency. Will Amanda meet all his requirements or will she push him past his limits?
Amanda is a good character. She has insecurities that are explored in this book. While a lot of conflict could have been avoided by her just communicating, I felt everything played out the way it should have. Eric is a strong alpha character. Under his cold and calloused exterior, he cares deeply for others. I liked that about him.
The heat in n this book is there. It progresses fairly quickly. I didn't mind that about the book, but felt it was a little too rushed for my taste.
The writing style of this book is good. The pace is steady, but at times a bit too fast. The story is told from a dual point of view. My only complaint is at times the story jumped around and I felt I didn't really get enough to invest in these characters together.
In conclusion, this was a good book. I would recommend it to others. While there were minor parts that I felt could have been improved, I enjoyed the story overall.
Writing Style: 4/5
Meet Beth Fred! That's me! I'm a full time ELF keeper and part time writer/blogger/writing instructor. I like my tea hot, my romance sweet, and my heroes chivalrous. Heroes hold open doors, refer to you as ma'am, make promises they keep, and aren't afraid to profess their undying love. It's not breakfast if there aren't carbs(at least, not in the South). Fajitas, carnitas, and churros are just few of my favorite things. Bet you can't guess where I'm from ;)
