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.

4.5 stars! 🙂 I really enjoyed this one. It was a little slow at times but I know with all first books in a series they have more background and info because you need that ground work for the next books. Just think there was more then I needed but all in all I was hooked and needed it all!! I really love the whole military aspect of this book being military wife. I love how Chase made you see what our men and there family go through after war and all the help they REALLY need. Opens your eyes that’s for sure.
So this book, this crazy emotional sexy book…. will get you and pull you in. I loved each and every charector in this book they had there part and they played it well. Maddie and Jake were AWESOME I love the connection these two had and seemed to might have always had. Growing up together in the lime light having to deal with some crazy stuff in life, Jake being the VP’s son and a war vet and Maddie the Presidents daughter they sure had some crazy things to deal with. After, I think, fate being them together again they find that the connection they have for each other might be the one they BOTH need to save them. Maddie dealing with the struggles of her life and what she wants to do for the world and Jake dealing with the aftermath of the war they will find love and it will be at some coast.
I loved how the book showed real struggles in life and what a lot of people are dealing with. I LOVED the banter between Maddie and Jake and the connection you get to watch blossom from I think past feelings. Its a little emotional at times and you will be faced with some hard life choices people make but there is hope and love and just UGH so much. I Cant even get it all down in words how I enjoyed this one. If you want something a bit emotional but real life and ONE sexy ass military guy then you are in for a treat! Thank you Nicole for giving us this one I cant NOT wait for more!!
The hand on the back of my neck tilted my head so he could kiss me better and I melted against him. I’d waited for this moment most of my life and I sure as hell wasn’t disappointed.
The kiss wasn’t rushed, wasn’t abrupt. It was slow, lingering brushes of lips, as our breaths slid over each other. It was an intense, raw moment as we tested unknown waters and what we found only increased our determination. When his tongue swiped across my bottom lip in a request for entrance I opened on a sigh. His free hand caressed my hip before sliding around to the small of my back, tucking me against him.
The feel of his hard body pressed against me made my head spin. Every delectable inch of hi was hard in just the right way. As his mouth danced over mine, fire ran through my veins. Everywhere that he touched me came alive and I wrapped my arms around his neck, hungry to feel more of him pressed to me. This was what I’d been looking for all these years. I felt alive and appreciated with each stroke of his tongue and touch of his hands.
His arm tightened around my waist and my feet left the ground. I gasped as he sat me on the unfinished kitchen island. Dark brown eyes drilled into mine as his hands slid down to cup my ass before gently spreading my legs so that he could fit between them. He pressed against my center and I couldn’t help but groan as he pulled me tight. Wrapping my legs around his hips I pushed even closer, trying to relieve the building ache.
He groaned into my mouth and I took the moment to nip his bottom lip. I’d wanted to do that forever; to feel it plump between my teeth. One of his hands squeezed my ass tighter and he grinded his erection into me, causing my head to fall backward on a gasp of pleasure. Each move against me made me gasp louder, and my eyes fell shut. With one hand he pulled my hair free from the rubber band before tangling his fingers in it.
“God, you taste good.” His voice was raw, harsh, and it sent shivers down my spine. He ran his nose along the column of my throat before nipping gently below my ear. “Should have done this forever ago.”
