Strange Bedfellows by Cardeno C. was a fantastic escape from the real political atmosphere in the U.S. and I loved every minute of it.
There was absolutely nothing I didn’t like about this book.
I wish I could say that there was something that I didn’t adore about Trevor and Ford, because now it’s just going to be me gushing about them. The whole book is fluffy goodness and exactly what I needed to get the taste of the current GOP front runner out of my mouth. (Er, that came out wrong.)
Ford wasn’t your typical politician–thank God. He actually cared about the people he was representing and believed that politics was a noble profession for those looking to serve their country.
It was actually kind of sweet.
Then there was Trevor. Growing up with his political parents made him avoid politics–and politicians–when at all possible. He had seen too much and become too jaded to believe that there are any good men or women left in government.
But Trevor realizes that Ford is different.
I loved the opening scene. Ford thinks he’s having this illicit, anonymous hook-up with a hot guy he met at a bar, but Trevor corrects him of that notion quickly. I laughed a bit and was glad that Trevor was so open and honest. It really set the tone for the book with these two characters being communicative and sweet to each other.
I was also appreciative that, for the most part, CC steered cleared of political policy with this book. You know that Ford is a Republican, and from a long line of Republicans, so you can make assumptions about laws he supports. However, other than gay rights (which obviously comes up a time or two) you don’t get hot button topics shoved in your face.
You can just relax and enjoy watching these two fall in love.
Strange Bedfellows has all the things that I love: low angst, hot sex, and loveable characters. If you’re looking for high angst or lots of action, then look elsewhere. Otherwise, I can’t recommend this one enough.
Copy provided in exchange for a fair and honest review.
As the sole offspring of the Democratic United States president and his political operative wife, Trevor Moga was raised in an environment driven by the election cycle. During childhood, he fantasized about living in a made-for-television family, and as an adult, he rejected all things politics and built a highly successful career as far from his parents as possible.
Newly elected congressman Ford Hollingsworth is Republican royalty. The grandson of a revered governor and son of a respected senator, he was bred to value faith, family, and the goal of seeing a Hollingsworth in the White House.
When Trevor and Ford meet, sparks fly and a strong friendship is formed. But can the billionaire son of a Democratic president build a family with the congressman son of a Republican senator? Forget politics, love makes strange bedfellows.
