Dear Mister President is a good romance novel that is likely to please a lot of readers. It has some great dialogue, charming characters, good action, and a believable tale that altogether just works to produce a fun, entertaining, and sexy story. There is a bit of suspended disbelief that’s necessary from the start as the resolutions feel a little too easy and perfect. I also didn’t feel the characters were as fully developed as they could be but as the author has promised a sequel already, I l ...more

USAF Colonel Charles Ryan first gains the President’s attention when he takes an assassin’s bullet which was intended for the Chief Executive himself. The Colonel, commonly referred to as Chad, is offered a position on the White House staff as the President’s personal assistant. Chad is a gay man in his forties, and although he is open about his sexual orientation, he vows to not allow it to become a factor which would interfere with the performance of his duties.

President Doug Kearney is fifty-

This was a fun story of a US Colonel who had previously saved the President being asked to become his, well kind of personal assistant. With it turns out a good deal.of emphasis on the personal. The premise is the President is bi, and married with a daughter at the time.... but the relationship between the two men is not only known about but sa ctioned and approves of by the First Lady. I enjoyed this, the writing is really good, but look on it as about as real as the films o

Between 3 and 3.5 stars

This book is difficult to rate. I enjoyed the romance between Ryan and Kearney but there were too many 'unknown' areas. I needed a bit more background on how the whole 'sharing' was going to work and why Kearney was with the wife.

I confess that the whole 'open relationship' concept is very foreign to me in terms that I could never see myself in one; however, I'm always curious about characters that are in one and what motivates them to do it. Why the characters in this un

Hum, what can I say about this book. It's the story of a colonel who saves the President's life. The President then recruits him as his personal security guy at the White House, and they fall in love. But, and hold onto your seat, the President is HAPPILY MARRIED to a great woman, and they have a young teenage daughter. The wife considers that since her husband is bisexual, and she knew that going into the marriage, she will eventually share him with another man, and that's perfectly fine with h ...more

A fictional love story involving the US President is not a new plot, not even if it’s a man on man love story, but the originality here is in the tone of the story, that is dry and precise, but very romantic, and that is probably the most difficult thing, mixing two elements apparently non mixable.

When to Colonel Charles “Chad” Ryan is proposed to become the personal bodyguard of Mister President Doug Kearney, he wonders why such high professional job is offered to a middle level officer like h

Really not feeling this one the characters are too bland and the attraction seems to be mostly down to convenience. I can't get away from the thought that Chad has been given the job for being gay/available more than any trainning or life saving he's done. He becomes the deputy of national secturity which sounds fancy and important but transalates to beer and swimming buddy. The president is such a great/nice guy that he tells his young daughter he wishes he was killed?! And there's a

Fun to read, a lovely, slow development of the relationship and not too reliant on sex scenes to carry the story on. I liked the mix of politics and romance as well!
Jan 11, 2015 Antonella rated it really liked it
Very well written, gripping, good dialogues, great secondary characters. Probably it deserves more than 4 stars, but I kept thinking about how unlikely the story was, even though I did enjoy it.

See a great review by Kassa.

This was my first time reading Mr. Fitzroy so I had no clue what to expect. The book was well written but there were so many little things I just found odd about this story.
The characters were well written but not fleshed out all that well, at least not to me. You never really knew who they "really were or what their backgrounds were."
The whole sharing business was okay but once again everything seemed to fall into place far too easily.

The ending seemed very abrupt for me. The author could have

Shelves: m-m, contemporary, romance
Implausible but highly entertaining, well written story of a romance between the US President and a former Air Force colonel, now member of the White House staff. I read it almost in one sitting and found it to be very engaging, even if I did think all the way through 'this would never happen in real life'! Pure escapism but a sweet romance nonetheless. I was left wishing for a sequel set after the Presidency was over.

I have trouble suspending my disbelief for a m/m romance involving the married president of the United States.
And when the president's wife and teenage child are in full support of the romance - along with the president's staff - well, you're asking too much.
And when that romance turns to insta-love as soon as they have sex - you've lost me and I'm never coming back.
I'm useless at reviews but even more so when they're for books such as this one. It's so different yet it still qualifies as a traditional romance.

It is also memorable to me as I read a large chunk of this book when stranded in the middle of nowhere in Cambodia after our public bus broke down and our replacement bus arrived hours later when I was at 94% and I wasn't happy (unlike all of my fellow travellers!) as I really wanted to finish the book but it wasn't logistically possible at that mome

2.5 This seemed very familiar. I'm sure I read this in an earlier version out on the net a while back. Anyway, it had some good moments but was very unpolished.

Really enjoyed this book... especially the swimming pool scenes and the level of political intrigue. Nicely done.
