Kneel, Mr. President by Lauren Gallagher



Reviewed by Tabatha


Kneel, Mr. President was an emotional but sizzling hot read that kept me thoroughly entertained from page one. I actually didn’t want to put it down, but sadly I needed sleep. Of course, I didn’t hesitate to wake up early just to finish it though. lol 

As I read, I found the dynamics between the three characters, Kent, Carlene, and James, truly fascinating. Kent and James have a bond that has stood the test of time, but despite how they feel about one another they have kept themselves apart on an intimate level and moved on with their lives even though they work in close proximity to one another.  Unfortunately the pressures of James’s position are driving him into an early grave, and his wife isn’t about to stand by and allow that to happen. Carlene seeks out Kent’s assistance to help save her husband in the only way she knows how…to give James what he cries out for in his sleep.

I have to say that this book was really quite good despite a few inconsistencies in the timeline that I noticed. (There were only 3 that I saw and not huge issues.)  What I was really impressed with in this story, is that so much of the book centered on the emotions boiling between the three characters and less was focused outside of the relationship. Of course it had a plot to it that it extended beyond the bedroom, but I was happy to see that we didn’t have some discovery and attempted exposure of the relationship. That would have made it predictable, and this book was anything but predictable.  The book really focuses on the emotional upheaval of all of the characters, and how they find their way to make things work for them. Kneel, Mr. President packed a wallop in the emotion department, but whew was it steamy hot too! So hot in fact, I guarantee you will get more than a little hot and bothered while reading it.  Overall, this book definitely gets my seal of approval. The only thing I had issue were those three inconsistencies in timeline, but other than that it was a fantastic read and I highly recommend.

*I received a review copy from the author/publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. I also purchased a copy upon release.*
