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.

I would like to thank the American Library Association and the publisher for providing me with an advance copy of Bedmates for an honest review.
Bedmates is a sweet, hot, emotional, with amazing chemistry. This is the first book I have read by Nichole Chase and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I loved her writing. It had an easiness while still dealing with real issues such as PTSD, war vets sacrifices and needs, and many more other political issues. These were not focal points but added to the story to make it a more grounded story with substance.
Both Maddie and Jake have been in the public eye for most of their lives due to their parents political careers. They both understand each other but also have misconceptions too. Maddie wants to make a difference in a cause she believes in while Jake just wants to forget about what happened in Afghanistan.
“You know how it is. Politics make for interesting bedmates.”
When both are forced to work together by their parents on a project for the betterment of their political standing, they will have to set aside their differences. Will they be able to be friends? Will they be able to keep their relationship to just friends or will it become more? Will jealousy get the better of them?
Bedmates is a cute, fast page turner, that made me wanting to read more from Nichole. I loved that this is a standalone. If you are looking for a great romance this is the book for you. I would definitely recommend and I am giving it 4 out of 5 stars.
BEDMATES Excerpt Four:
“Let me clean up my stuff. We can take my truck.” He stood up with a grimace.
“What?” I looked at him as if he was crazy.
“You need help.” He shrugged. “I’ll help.”
“No, it’s okay. I’ll be fine.” I shook my head a little too hard and my pony tail whipped me in the eye. I grimaced and blinked back tears. “Ow!”
“Here—“ Jake pressed something to my eye. “It’s no big deal. This is what friends do, right?”
“You’re still on probation—“ I snapped and batted away his hand. That’s when I realized he had lifted his shirt to wipe away my tears, exposing a wide expanse of well-muscled abdomen.
“Then I still need to work it off.” He smiled at me and my frown deepened.
I had to stop doing stupid things around Jake Simmon. In fact I just needed to not be around Jake Simmon. Looking at him made my brain leak out my ears. Talking to him left me equally amused and tongue-tied. I couldn’t think straight around the man and he was busy chasing tail all over D.C. Yes, the last thing I needed was to spend more time with Jake while he tried to be my friend. It just muddied the waters.
“No, no, no. I’m fine.” I waved my hands to emphasize my point as if all the no’s hadn’t made it clear.
He reached toward my face again with his shirt. “Stop swatting at me or you’re going to get more dirt in your eyes. Be still, Madeline.”
I froze when he used my whole name. It was rare for anyone to use my full name and when he did, something odd happened in my stomach. He dabbed at my face while I tried to ignore the way my blood pressure rocketed with his proximity.
