"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.” ~President Ronald Reagan

Growing up in the Virginia suburbs of DC, I was never a fan of politics, but I had two presidents and political heroes whom I greatly admired: one who was before my time, John F. Kennedy, and one was during my childhood, Ronald Reagan. When I heard these presidents speak, both great

I'm going to keep this review short and super sweet because you already know that I am crazy over Katy Evans and her books! But I just need to say that just when you think it can't get any better than it has, Katy goes and writes a sequel that flat out BLOWS YOU AWAY. A sequel that is so full of sweetness, it makes you swoon just thinking about it. I cannot say enough good things about Mathew and Charlotte. Those two are so perfect it's not even funny.

Katy Evans has my book boyfriend owned heart spinning like a revolving door lately. I fell in love with Matt Hamilton in Mr. President, believing she couldn’t possibly create another character I’d love more. Then, I lost my head and heart to Callan Carmichael in Womanizer. I was anxious to see if Matt had the sequel stamina to win me back.

Oh, win me back he did. Matthew #MadeMyHeartHisAgain

Commander In Chief was everything I'd hoped it would be. No, that's not true. It was so much more. The feelings--my feelings--so intense. The love--super crazy love. In Katy's acknowledgements she mentioned hoping people would be able to "feel this. Just like this." I guarantee you, I felt it.

"I fucking love the hell out of you," he whispers.

I was so afraid, not knowing what was going to happen with the investigation. That's all I'm saying about that... so I don't ruin it for everyone.

What a fantastic conclusion, to a great duet 4.5 stars. I loved everything about Matt and Charlotte's tag of war. I felt like I was walking through the halls of the White House in Charlotte's footsteps, and absorbing all the thrills and feels along the way.

Katy has done a remarkable job on this series, I'm a total Manwhore fan, but President Hamilton, well I think he just knocked the Saint off his pedestal.

This second installment, unlike the first was not as thrilling…at least for this reader. However, I enjoyed it! That being said, I have to say that I’m a little disappointed with this one.

Book two starts off two months after Matt wins the presidency. Charlotte has been in Europe trying to mend her broken heart and Matt has come to a decision concerning his and Charlottes relationship. No longer willing to live without her Matt puts a plan in motion to win her back and keep her forever.


I enjoyed this one just slightly less than I did the first book. It was missing some of the "illicit affair-falling in love" vibe that the first book had and dragged a little for me especially tow

Commander in Chief is the second book in the White House Series, and this romantic duet MUST be read in order so if you haven't read the first book in the series Mr. President then cease reading this review now and come back later after you have read the first book!

I've waited for this book like air and after receiving the wonderful news of its early release, I was so excited to read the conclusion of this amazing love story.
Matt is now president of The United States and hasn't seen Charlotte in over 2 months, right after the news of his election was released. Because of the complicated situation that Matt was not able to be president and love someone in the same time, Charlotte decided to sacrifice her love for him and put the people's need first.

First of all, I'm in love with this duet's covers! Gorgeous! This alternating POV duet was such a joy to read, and it was interesting to find out more about what happens in a presidential campaign. Matt and Charlotte were both lovable characters who showed growth in the span of the two books.

I have never wanted a fictional character to be the real life President of the United States so much!! “Commander In Chief” was the perfect conclusion to Matt and Charlotte’s story and I couldn’t have been more happier with the outcome.

Picking up right where “Mr.President” left off, Matt has won the election and now is now gearing up for his Inauguration. But with that successful win, comes the devastating loss of losing the one woman he would do anything f

Yup - Matt's the President of the United States of America now.


And he hasn't seen Charlotte for two months. She ran away to Europe to get away from everything, and to maybe start forgetting about Matt. But of course you can't forget the man you're hopelessly in love with. And Matt didn't forget her either.
He wants her back. And since they can't start a relationship just like that (remember? His campaign sai

Commander in Chief is part of the White House series by Katy Evans. I love Katy Evans and I love this series. I’m all about presidential theme books and I was dying for this book. Commander In Chief was nothing what I expected but everything I wanted and more.

The book beings two months later from when Charlotte leaves Matt and didn’t you love that ending? I love a good cliff hanger and this one didn’t disappoint.

I'm going to make this review as quick as possible, this is one of those books where I just don't know how to review because it's character driven but this is why I ADORE Katy Evans writing style she grabs hold of my every nerve ending from page one.

This book picks up straight from Mr President and this is just a story about two people who are meant to be. But it's also a story about power, about strength, about love of a country and hope for their country. I'm not from the USA but I believ

Commander in Chief picks up in the months following Matthew Hamilton's successful presidential bid. If you've not read the first book, Mr. President, rewind and do so now as this isn't a standalone read.


This is one of those books that whilst I was satisfied with how it played out and continued to adore the characters, at the same time I was a bit peeved at the predictable path Katy Evans led Matthew and Charlotte down, and her failure to bring anything unique to the table beyond their situation

Matthew Hamilton is back as the Commander In Chief of our nation, and the owner of our hearts. This deliciously, sexy story takes us through the struggles of this handsome alpha male, as he tries to manage his feelings for the woman he loves and his responsibility and duty to his country.

Charlotte Wells fell in love with President-Elect Matthew Hamilton while working on his campaign, & then ended things and left for Europe for two months. She didn't see any way they could make things work or be together without causing a scandal now that Matt would be the forty-sixth president of the United States. He needed to focus on his very demanding new job, & she needed to try to move on. Problem was, she missed him horribly and time did nothing to les

“She’s the light. Walks on water”

Two months have passed since Matt has been elected and his inauguration is about to happen when we reunite with him and Charlotte. He hasn't been able to forget his girl and after a lot of second-guessing his decision to not continue his relationship with her he finally decided to go after her, damn the consequences.
