Fifteen years from now, an affair rocks the world.
Two men commit to their impossible love.
One general is determined to destroy them both.
President Jack Spiers and former Secret Service Agent Ethan Reichenbach throw caution to the wind, committing themselves publicly as the first out male lovers and partners to occupy the White House. Jack moves Ethan into the Residence, but as Ethan settles into his new role as first gentleman of the United States, not everyone is thrilled with their choices. When it seems like the world turns against them, Jack and Ethan must turn to each other, finding the strength together to press on.
In the chaos, Jack’s relationship with the Russian president, Sergey Puchkov, grows closer, and the two nations find themselves working almost as allies. But President Puchkov has secrets of his own, secrets that could rip everything apart. And Ethan steps back into the action with Lieutenant Adam Cooper, taking charge of a covert kill team tasked with hunting down General Madigan once and for all.
But Madigan is elusive, and his dangerous reach is long. He strikes at Jack and Ethan from the shadowy corners of the globe, unraveling their entire world. As the mad general draws new allies together, he is single-minded in his quest to destroy the only two men who ever beat him.
He will stop at nothing until Jack and Ethan are shattered men, worlds apart, and struggling to get back to one another.
And after that, Madigan’s true revenge begins …
This is one of the most epic sequels I think I have ever read!
For me it was almost like reading two books. The first half was very political and I was hovering around the 4 star mark. The second half is where the feels, the romance and the brilliance really came into play making that part a solid 5 stars – so I have taken the middle ground and gone with 4.5 stars for overall.
I had figured that Jack and Ethan had gotten their HEA at the end of the first book even though there were a few loose ends but oh boy was I wrong! Although in this book they start off happy there is very quickly trouble in paradise and even in your wildest dreams I don’t think you will see the twists coming.
This book picks up exactly where book one left us with Ethan and Jack residing in the White House. Reactions to this are split with the biggest haters belonging to Jack’s own party. To tell you much more would mean dropping spoilers – so I won’t. There are SO many twists and turns, there are new characters and focus on another couple. There is hurt, fear and one hell of a cliff-hanger as far as the actual storyline goes but is all worth it and I can’t wait for the third and final book to be published in the New Year.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
