Can the billionaire son of a Democratic president build a family with the congressman son of a Republican senator? Forget politics, love makes strange bedfellows.

As the sole offspring of the Democratic United States president and his political operative wife, Trevor Moga was raised in an environment driven by the election cycle. During childhood, he fantasized about living in a made-for-television family, and as an adult, he rejected all things politics and built a highly successful career as far from his parents as possible.

Newly elected congressman Ford Hollingsworth is Republican royalty. The grandson of a revered governor and son of a respected senator, he was bred to value faith, family, and the goal of seeing a Hollingsworth in the White House.

When Trevor and Ford meet, sparks fly and a strong friendship is formed. But can the billionaire son of a Democratic president build a family with the congressman son of a Republican senator? Forget politics, love makes strange bedfellows.

Ford Hollingsworth, Republican congressman from Missouri and from a family with a long political history, is coming to terms with his sexuality. When he has a chance encounter one night with Trevor Moga, Ford begins a relationship for the first time that will radically change his life. See, Trevor’s the son of the President of the United States and Dad’s a Democrat.


I expected Trevor and Ford to have the usual dilemmas associated with two powerful political families on opposite sides of the aisle but it wasn’t that kind of story. The focus was on their developing relationship from a more personal perspective. Being in a committed relationship was new for Trevor and Ford hadn’t come out to anyone yet.


Ford was such a sweet character and I enjoyed his self discovery, especially how he reconciled his situation spiritually. While it first appeared that Trevor might have the upper hand, Ford’s guileless nature was the real driver, not only with his lover but his conservative leaning family. It was refreshing.


The ending might be unrealistic but it certainly was true to the characters. I loved their resolution and these bedfellows were anything but strange. Be prepared for some off the charts, steamy moments, too, as Trevor and Ford don’t hold back. I very much enjoyed this story.

I LOVE reading and am just crazy about so many series and writers. I’m open to exploring new authors and genres and appreciate those who not only write well but can deliciously craft a character and a tale. Your suggestions for new authors and titles are very much welcomed.

I also love to talk about books. There’s nothing more exciting than to finish a great story and cover it A to Z with other people, exploring different perspectives and points of view. So, if you see something on my shelf you’d like to talk about, send me a message and we’ll talk!
