➳Katy Evans never seems to disappoint, especially in this incredible and dramatic ending to an outstanding story…
➳The ending of Mr. President had me with my jaw opened, because I was NOT expecting there to be a cliff hanger. THAT’S what Katy does to us readers, surprises us with the most unexpected plot twists and endings that you do not see coming. Thankfully,this story is excellently structured in which us the readers can both enjoy and devour at the same time. She brings this story to a whole new other level of knowledge towards our country’s history and what is to come if there were a good presidency in our society taking place.
➳The story starts off with Charlotte and Matt being away from each other, for a little over two months after Matt’s election winning as the first Independent party President- Elect. Their separation is something that is quite devastating to read due to the fact that Charlotte had already confessed her feelings towards Matt in the previous book. Matt of course, is true goner for this woman and cannot stay away from knowing about her. He has been keeping track of where she has been traveling all over Europe during their two month separation. Just in time for the presidency inauguration, Charlotte comes back to him and he will not let the love of his life go away from his grasp for the second time. Although, now that he is the President, Matthew has a reputation to uphold. Not only does he have to start off his presidency at a correct and positive path, but he also wants to connote the legacy of his father; former President Hamilton. Charlotte though, is every where he goes and in his mind all the time;
”I let the woman I love go because I didn’t want her to go through what Mom went through. And I’ve realized that I can’t do this without her. That I need her. That she makes me stronger. I don’t want to hurt her if it’s my turn to end up here- I don’t want her to cry every night like Mother doe because I’m no longer here for her…”
➳The secrecy about their relationship is what binds this book to the first one, categorizing it as something incredible to read (unless of course you are already a fan of Scandal the TV show…) Matt is still the same, even after two months of being apart. He CRAVES Charlotte’s presence and cannot stand the idea of not being near her- both physically and emotionally.
➳Something that I wish Katy would have added more of, is Matt’s perspective to this story. I wanted to be inside his head more and see how a presidency winner MAY feel. But overall, this was such a wonderful ending to a conclusion of the first book that I was not expecting- both positively and negatively. This series of two has to be by far one of Katy’s incredible master pieces, because this is one heck of a story to read for those who are looking to take a part of the politics environment with a special side of scandal.
