**REVIEW - Strange Bedfellows by Cardeno C.**


Strange Bedfellows
By Cardeno C.


Synopsis:

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.

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.

** Rachel's Review **
I have recently become a fan of the M/M genre.  Something about the external conflict in these stories really gets to me, and this story did just that.  Strange Bedfellows was the perfect mix of lust, love and conflict.
The story starts off with a bang - of sorts. The 'up against a wall' kind.  Ford and Trevor, two very well known players in the world of politics, meet in a bar and spend the night lost in each other.  Soon, their one night secret tryst turns into more.  So much more.  While Trevor, the President's son, is accepted in his liberal world as a gay man, Ford has hidden his sexual orientation his entire life.  The Republican son of Senator Hollingsworth wouldn't dare come out and ruin his family's good name.

Except when he falls in love. 
I loved the amount of politics in this book.  The tiny glimpse into a world I literally know nothing about was fascinating to me.  
If you are a fan of the M/M genre, you most definitely need to pick up a copy of this book.  It was an interesting, easy 4 1/2 heart read for me, and I will totally be looking up other books by this author.
