Sophia Triad
Although most of the times I am equally disgusted and interested in the results of bad political decisions, I have reached the point that I only want to know anything about the life of politicians if it is in the sphere of the fantasy.

What I mean is that I only like stories with politicians if there are part of fiction romance books. I want strong heartbreaking over the top stories. If there is some kink included, I am more that happy

So yeah.. this book is a very good examble.

If you
I feel this whole situation is a nonsense. An affectionate and sincere marriage is not like the one presented here, friends dont talk to each other like the way James and Kent do, and not that I know much about this I dont think the everyday life of a president is like that. This story is very artificial and unrealistic.
The characters are thinking way too much about the same thing over and over again, the writing style is killing me, no humor, no steam, no development.

Its really difficult to

Ok, I need a few days after finishing this book to digest it before I reviewed it.

First I love MM, MMF, and MFM. So this book already had that going for it.

You have 3 main characters The President James, his wife Carlene, and Kent who is head of security for The President.

Carlene is my favorite character and here is why. She sees that the Presidency is killing her husband, he is too stressed. She has tried all she can to help him but nothing is working.

Ivy Deluca
James is the POTUS and hes under alot of stress. Stress that his first lady, Carlene, cant help him relieve by herself. So she calls in backup, in the form of James former lover Kent, who is also his Head of Security. Oh yeah, thats not the only head hes going to give him.

The Good, The Bad and Everything In Between

The Good : The menage is surprisingly strong and the characters would have worked just as well without the White House background. Their relationships, as individuals and with each

This was a really good book. I find myself interested in reading politics and kink. James Broderick is the President of the USA and the stress his killing him. The first lady his wife Carlene knows that if she doesn't do something he will have a heart attack and die leaving her with three small kids. She knows that he husband is bisexual and the man who is the head of is security is his former lover.

For the longest time I considered this one to be my second favorite MMF title...but 3rd time around must be charmed because it's now tied with Beyond Eden. (Favorite MMF series is Brothers in Arms.)

I was gonna just zone out during the political aspects because I'm so over politricks right now, but a little over an hour in James was pondering his legacy, as he was being raked over the coals by Congress and the media for not immediately jumping into war, and mentioned that he thought he was seen

This was quite good but essentially I can't imagine how this triade can work out in the long term I am really sorry that the relationship between Carlene and Kent is not more
I was really sorry, that there was not more development between Carlene and Kent ... there was potential there but somehow it seemed as if the Author wanted to go in that direction and chickened out at the last moment

another thing which was a bit annoying was, that we got a nice dvelopment but the ending was rushed.

I've been a big fan of Lauren Gallagher/L.A. Witt's work for many years and one thing I've always appreciated is her out of the box thinking and style and Kneel Mr. President may be her most out of the box work to date. Three people come together under unlikely circumstances and under great secrecy to insure that the leader of the free world is able to keep calm and lead on and man oh man does this book bring to light all kinds of

My Review:
If there was ever a perfect menage/bdsm book, this may just be it. I loved this story. This book is truly about James, ex-navy SEAL and now the President of the US. He's been married to Carlene for 10 years and has been the President for 2 of those and she can see that he's buckling under the stress and strain.

It's been well-documented how much being the President ages the man in office, so I loved how Lauren Gallagher used that to set the premise of this story. In the book, Kent and

With a title like this I was definitely expecting a lot of enthusiastically-written kinky sex, but this book surprised me by being more than that. Instead, it starts right as a tense situation comes to a head--the First Lady going to her husband's friend, bodyguard, and ex-fuckbuddy to say that she thinks he's gonna die of Presidential stress unless the friend comes back to the First Bedroom--and follows the three protagonists through all the birthing pains of a realistic triad relationship. ...more

Given my anxiety regarding the upcoming US elections, perhaps reading this book wasn't the best of ideas. #Sadtrombone

But, I've been in a bit of an M/M/F kick this weekend so I spent this afternoon reading all about POTUS, FLOTUS, and the Secret Service dude who helped repair their marriage. This was a longish novel, but my overall feeling about it is "mehhhhhhhhh."

The Suburban Eclectic
This is not for the faint of heart, but for those voracious readers that have felt that they have read everything, well you haven't seen POTUS in a more than one compromising position. There are some jaw dropping WTF moments, but there is also love and understanding too. The writing is strong and the characters believable. So if you're searching for something different I would definitely give this one a try.

I wont rate this since I knew going in that I probably wasnt going to love it (I just cant with the girl parts). I listened ONLY for the narrator, but even he couldnt save this one for me. This book was too unrealistic. I cant list all of the things that had me rolling my eyes in disbelief.

So... no rating. No more girl parts. Just no.
3.5 Stars

It's stressful being president of the United States. It ages a person, drastically, everyone wants a piece of you and dealing with congress is a pain in the ass. Even for an ex-SEAL, being president can apparently be overwhelming. James Broderick is an ex-SEAL that had not intended to run for president. At least not as his first political adventure. He had planned to run for Senate. However, when the Republican Party put a Bush clone on the ticket, he was tapped to run on the Democratic

Reread 2018: i think i might have liked it more the first time i read it, but i'm sure that's also because back then it was the first ever book about polyamory i read and i really needed to see some rep. i also think that, for me, it worked better in ebook than audio. but i'm glad i got to revisit it. some extra thoughts:

there's this part where carlene is talking about how weird two guys being together is and then afterwards being on board especially because she thinks it's hot and i'm not too

Narrator: Aiden Snow

This was becoming a 5-star book but halfway through my fears stuck - I could not see how this setup could be unravelled without someone getting hurt. My initial impression of Carlene - that she hated the thought of her husband sleeping with Kent - was correct. And I had been hoping the author would dismiss that anxiety. She did not, instead Ms Gallagher strung out Carlene's torment to the point each of my five stars started to crumble one

Totally not what I expected... in a very good way. ;)

I get book recommendations all the time. Some I take and some I ignore, but there are a few reader's recommendations that I always pay attention to. Author Christi Snow is at the top of that list of people. I follow what she reads most of the time anyway, but when she makes a point of bringing a book to my attention I ask no questions and search out the book. I have to admit though, this is the first time I came close to hesitating. Part of

It's been a while since I've read a book with a woman being one of the MCs.

Lucky me, I've chosen a Lauren Gallagher book ;) Why? Because she is one of the few authors who actually write female characters I can relate to. Not only during the sex scenes but also as a person. I liked Charlene, I liked her determination to help her husband, no matter what. I loved when she faked an orgasam. Her brain was running in several directions, she couldn't switch of the worries and it would have caused more
4.5 Stars

So here's the thing: You have to make sure you pay attention to the character descriptions or just go in ahead of time imagining them as other people; for instance, I substituted mental pictures of Fitz, Jake and Olivia (a triad I would totally read fanfiction for, BTW) from Scandal and that helped a lot to keep me from veering off into weird 45 territory (because...ewww *gag*). Here, lemme go ahead and plant the seed in case you're interested in reading/listening to this as well:

Okay, so the story is kinda far out there. The President of United States is a bisexually submissive. He is ex-SEAL and his best friend and ex-lover is his head of security, but also a Dom and in love with his friend, the president. The stress of being the President is slowly killing him, so his wife, the First Lady, turns to her husband's best friend, the Head of Security and ask for help. That is to say, she asks him if he can fuck her husband, because she knows they're still attracted to each ...more

Is it the fact that the President, James, likes a little bit of domination what's bothering me? No.

Is it the fact that he sometimes likes it up the butt? Mmmmmno, not really. I like chocolate; the President likes anal. Differences make the world go 'round.

Is it the fact that Carlene, the FLOTUS, watches Kent, Secret Service agent and the President's former lover, violate the Presidents sphincter five ways to Monday (with a little extra unh-unh on Thursday) that has my head spinning? Uhhh, no,

I dont often read or review M/M/F books, but if theres one author whos guaranteed to always write a stellar story, its Lauren Gallagher (aka L.A. Witt in the m/m world). The title and the premise of the story intrigued me, but if it had been an author I respected less, I would have doubted her ability to pull it off. A menage BDSM story taking place in the White House? Thats a challenge to make believable, but this author did a beautiful job.

I loved the way Kent and James past relationship was

Wow I didn't expect to love this audiobook as much as I did!! This books has MF, MM, MMF and MFM scenes and wow they were HOT, that is not was I was surprised about though, I was expecting that! What I didn't expect was how great the story is too! It's a love story by far, with a wife who loves her husband enough to try anything to help him deal with the stress of being the president and PTSD (or so she thought). It's also a love story about two men who have trusted and loved

Took me a while to get through (mainly b/c I was reading other page-turning books), but it was slow in places.

I wish Carlene would've stepped up as a Domme a little more strongly, and I thought too much was laid at Kent's door. James was just a wimp really.

Not really a BDSM book, just "orders" - so more Domestic Discipline rather than anything else. Still a bit wimpish though.

Hmm...where to start with this one? We'll start with what I did enjoy. I really liked the juxtaposed premise, and that's what made me pick up the book. The polyamorous relationship is well-developed, although there are places where more detail would really aid in making certain characters that much more visceral - for instance, knowing a little more about what drove Kent to the BDSM clubs in the first place would add more concrete evidence to why his and James'

Lets start with acknowledging this was a unique book. I absolutely loved the setting in the White House, and the fact that the main characters were the President and First Lady, plus their Secret Service Guy.

This is definitely not a smut book. Its a romance, focusing more on the romance between James and Carlene and James and Kent than on the sex and the D/s element. The actual number of sex scenes and D/s scenes is actually rather low from what you might expect from the description and the

Heres what you need to know: this is about a bisexual president, his First Lady who wants to learn to be a Domme, and the head of POTUS security. Both men are ex-SEAL. Through the course of the story, they ease toward a polyamorous relationship.

The three have super interesting dynamics. James, the president, and Kent have been best friends for years. They were also on-again, off-again lovers while they served in the military. They tried dating but it didnt go well and the next time Kent saw
