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.

my-review

Nicole has come back from her small writing hiatus with true vigor and definitely does not let us down.  If anything, she just proves why she is amazing and waiting any amount of time frame is damn well worth that wait.

Bedmates was a heart-breaking and beautiful read.  Maddie and Jake definitely whittled their way into my heart and have a special place there.  These two, I just love them.

Maddie is the President’s daughter.  And she’s just like any other college student – wanting to find her niche in this world.  And sometimes doesn’t always think things through completely and just goes what she feel is right. Unfortunately for her, what she does, where it’s good or bad, gets blasted all over the news.

Jake is the Vice President’s son and also a wounded war veteran.  Jake’s mom is a candidate for the next President and uses her son to her advantage in anyway she is able.  However, Jake is done being her puppet and has ideas of his own.

I truly enjoyed watching these interact and grow as the story moved along.  They both always saw each other in a different light in their younger years.  And well, you just can’t deny the chemistry between the two of them.  Maddie is so down to earth and truly a genuine person.  Jake is very charming and just wants to help his fellow veterans.

One thing that I truly love Nicole for with this book  is her ability to not sugarcoat PTSD and what our veterans go through. It’s heartbreaking but it also shines a light on a problem in our society that we so quickly sweep under the rug. 

Bedmates is a great start to what I believe is going to be very entertaining and loveable series.

“I asked if there was any sex.” His shoes came into view and I looked up slowly.
“Oh, there will be.” I met his eyes. “But not yet.”
His eyes widened just a smidge, his nostrils flared ever so slightly, and I realized how what I’d said sounded.
“I mean, um, that I wouldn’t mind—” Shit, that was worse. “I promise to cover her eyes.”
“What wouldn’t you mind, Madeline?” His voice dropped an octave, making my heart speed up. Madeline, not Maddie or MadLlibs.
“I, um—what?” My voice was breathy as he took a step even closer to me.
“You mentioned something about sex, I believe.” He reached out, using his fingers to brush some of the hair out of my eyes.
“I did? I mean, yes, I did. On the show.” I fumbled over the words. “Buffy! That’s what I was talking about. I wouldn’t mind having sex with—damn it—I mean I wouldn’t mind seeing—shit. No matter what I say this sounds wrong.”
“Nothing wrong with sex.” His eyes twinkled and I realized his hand was still on my face when he lifted my chin up.
“I—I—know that.”
His thumb ran over my bottom lip. “Then why do you have such a hard time talking about it?”
“I don’t!” My spine stiffened. “Sex doesn’t scare me.”
“Then it’s me.” He lowered his head close to mine and I swallowed the lump in my throat. “I make you nervous.”
I swallowed again, my throat scratchy like sandpaper. “No you don’t.”
“Yes, I do.” His hand swept around to the back of my neck. “I always have.”
“I was, what, seventeen when you left for officer training?” I tried to calm my racing heart. “So what if I was a little nervous around you?”
“So you admit it?” His eyes twinkled and his mouth moved a little closer to mine.
“I admit nothing.” I jerked my chin up.
“Are you nervous now?” His body pressed closer to mine and I licked my lips. “Am I making you nervous?”
“Yes.” I whispered the word, not taking my eyes from his.
“Is it a good nervous?” His eyes grew serious. “Or are you scared of me?”
“I’m not scared of you, Jake.” I touched his chest and noticed that my hand was steady despite how fast my heart was beating. “You never scared me.”

  2. I’d be wary about being constantly seen and photographed.

  3. Thank you so much! ~Jessica, InkSlinger PR

  4. I would steer clear of lobbyists.

  5. Oops! I think I misread the question. I thought it said “political figures” instead of “public figures”. If I were a public figure, I would avoid the paparazzi as much as possible.
