From the New York Times bestselling author of Suddenly Royal comes the first in a sparkling new series about America’s favorite royal—the First Daughter.
Everyone makes mistakes, especially in college. But when you’re the daughter of the President of the United States, any little slip up is a huge embarrassment. Maddie McGuire’s latest error in judgment lands her in police custody, giving the press a field day. Agreeing to do community service as penance and to restore her tattered reputation, Maddie never dreams incredibly good looking but extremely annoying vice president’s son, Jake Simmon, will be along for the ride.
Recently returning from Afghanistan with a life-altering injury, Jake is wrestling with his own demons. He doesn’t have the time or patience to deal with the likes of Maddie. They’re like oil and water and every time they’re together, it’s combustible. But there’s a thin line between love and hate, and it’s not long before their fiery arguments give way to infinitely sexier encounters.
When Jake receives devastating news about the last remaining member of his unit, the darkness he’s resisted for so long begins to overwhelm him. Scared to let anyone close, he pushes Maddie away. But she isn’t about to give up on Jake that easily. Maddie’s fallen for him, and she’ll do anything to keep him from the edge as they both discover that love is a battlefield and there are some fights you just can’t lose.

“I’ll be done in a minute.” He looked down at me and smiled softly. “I’m glad you’re here.”
“Yeah? Why’s that?”
“You’re just so easy to be around.” He shrugged as if that summed up the whole world but I had no idea what it meant.
“And… . . . that’s a good thing?.” I frowned up at him. He gave me butterflies and I stumbled over everything I said but he thought I was easy to be around.
He stepped closer and I found myself nose to chest. His fingers tilted my chin up and his lips fluttered over mine. I let my palm rest on his skin where I could feel his heart beating rapidly. He didn’t touch me except for the fingers on my chin and his lips on mine.
When he stepped back, his brown eyes were dark. “It’s a good thing.”
Before I could think to ask anything else, he was gone, taking the stairs two at a time. My fingers drifted up to my lips and I stared at where he had just been, the remote in my other hand forgotten.
I’d never been kissed like that before; with so much tenderness and awe.
Politics often makes for strange bedmates doesn’t it? But Nichole Chase’s Bedmates hits just the right notes… nothing strange about it. It is sexy, heartwarming, sweet and will make you feel. Bring on theses American Royals!
In this book we have the daughter of the president and the son of the vice president.. should be perfect right? But the daughter, Maddie, is a bit of a wild, rebel. Oh, no – not like you’re thinking! Not sex, drugs and partying! More like let’s march to the beat of our own drum and not care about the media backlash! She wants to save the world (or at least all of the animals) and she may not think about the consequences first. And Jake has always been that perfect golden boy… though we has just returned from Afghanistan – injured. Growing up they always rubbed each other the wrong way. And now their parents are throwing them together on a project 😉
I gobbled this book up. I was absolutely taken with every single character in this book. YES. EVERY. ONE. From our main ones, Maddie and Jake, to the little dog Puz, to their siblings to their Secret Service Agents. Every one had a personality that really added something to the story. I loved watching the interactions and how real they seemed. It made it a very quick read for me.
Watching Maddie and Jake forge a true relationship with each other just warmed my heart. I was rooting for them so hard. So that when they faced the bumps in their road my heart was truly in my throat. I had tears in my eyes as I was hoping that they could fight their way through it. What they faced are things that many couples in their situation have to face. And I only hope and pray that everyone can fid a happily ever after as well. And that others have the wonderful friend surrounding them that they found around them. I loved that Nichole Chase chose to showcase that the two projects that they were focusing on were to help Veterans and to help animals. They were s seamlessly tied into the story and the passions of the character that hopefully these causes will seep into readers awarenesses as well!
I definitely recommend this book. It warmed my heart. I can’t wit for the next standalone book in this series!
I received a complimentary copy of Bedmates in exchange for my honest review.
