Format: Paperback
David Windsor, successful businessman and (cough) cousin to royalty, is the 2012 Democratic presidential candidate. With just six weeks to go before the election, Windsor is ahead in the polls and looks set to take his place at the helm of the first Democratic government in twelve years. But the Republicans know that Windsor is gay, and in the closing statements of the final debate, Windsor finds himself outed on national television.

Secret Service agent, Shane Thompson, is charged with David Windsor's personal safety. With news of Windsor's sexuality making waves, Shane finds himself working more closely than ever before with a man who might one day be the first openly gay US president.

I think the worst part of reading this book is that there is so clearly the potential for a great story. The challenges facing Windsor are enormous, but unfortunately they are largely swept aside and ignored in a book which essentially comes to epitomize the Mary Sue (Super Mario!)phenomenon. Windsor is perfect, and handsome, and charming, and powerful. And Thompson is Brad Pitt-like perfect, and charming, and young, and has the greatest ass ever. Happy days, because they can snuggle up together at night by means of a handy secret passage, and reinforce their perfection!

To me, it felt like the book wasn't quite sure whether it was intended to be a political thriller or a m/m romance. It fails at both, with the Republicans essentially all tarred with the same broad "EVIL, BAD, AWFUL!" brush (the Democrats, of course, are all just mischievious li'l angels). The Big Bads in the book are predictable and boring, making the end reveal less of a bang and more of a whimper.

I have to agree with the earlier reviewer on this. I was excited by the premise but disappointed by the writing style (very self-congratulatory) and the rushed way in which both the story line and the romance were portrayed. A missed opportunity I fear.

Format: Paperback
If you've watched any number of bad porn videos out there in the public domain then you've already read this book. It's aggravating the way any Tom off the street is encouraged to declare themselves authors and force paying customers like myself to suffer through 'literary' atrocities like this.
Very bad flat writing, uninspiring, no drama, just - very bad. Characters pulling other people's cocks around without an 'excuse me' or 'by your leave'!

Editing and proofing on the Kindle was ok. It would benefit from a decent editor.

John Simpson had the courage to consider writing about a American President who happened to be gay.
Sadly, he then went and actually did it :(
Remarkably he did it several times resulting in a "Condor" series.

It's just plain awful :( I'd take the time to critique its failings but then that would be several more hours of my life lost to an inadequate work.

If you can get past the first paragraph, let alone the first chapter, then at least you know that it's never going to get any better ;(
