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.

“Have you been crying?” Warm fingers touched my cheek and I jerked in surprise at the sparks that danced through my blood. I couldn’t remember if he had ever touched me except for obligatory dances at celebrations and fund- raisers. “What happened? Are you okay?”
“No, I’m fine.” I stepped out of his reach and rubbed under my eyes. Tearing my gaze from his I leaned over and picked up his cane. “It’s allergies.”
“We’ve known each other too long for you to lie to me.” He let his hand fall back to his side. I handed him the cane and stepped back. “Someone told you that I was on my way, huh? We all know how much you hate me. I’m surprised you didn’t jump out of the window.”
“It was an option.” I rolled my eyes. I guess I wasn’t the only one that remembered our last meeting hadn’t been pleasant. “I also considered hiding in the closet, but was too slow.”
There! Take that, perfect Jake Simmon. I was quick on my feet today.
“So, you know why I’m here.” The way his eyes ran over me as if taking stock was obnoxious.
“I’m your body guard. When the crazy women start running after you, I’m to dive in the way.” And damn if they wouldn’t come running when they saw how he looked all grown up and rough around the edges.
“I’m glad they have a plan.” He scratched his chin. “Getting bombarded with underwear and bras is a health issue.”
“If they got to know you, it wouldn’t be a problem.” I rolled my eyes.
“What does that mean?” His head cocked to the side.
“I thought you lost your leg, not your brain.” My eyes widened, but it was too late to take it back. Why was it that I said the most horrible things around him? Even when we’d been younger I’d had diarrhea of the mouth. Especially around Jake.
He threw his head back and laughed. “I don’t think they’re after my brain, Maddie. Thankfully the part they’re most interested in is still fully functional.”
His lazy smile and sparkling eyes had me swallowing hard.
Heat crept up my neck and I fought to not look away. “Well, good for you.”

OMG people …… THE FEELS!!
Let me tell you what I LOVE … I love reading a story that is progressing nicely with warmth and feelings and then BAM, your heart is gutted and you’re a blubbering mess … you’ve been warned!
What attracted me to this story was the main characters. I mean we’ve all read stories of the first daughter/son before … but I myself have never read a story where the leads were the children of the President and Vice President. And I was intrigued at the certain impending disaster that was sure to occur 🙂
Bedmates is going to surprise you. At least it did me. The story as a whole you will not see coming because it is WAY more than what you read in the synopsis. It has a depth and growth and layers that will sneak up on you and it is just SO well written! My first read by Nichole Chase but I will be stalking her from this point on.
Maddie McGuire is the first daughter. Trouble seems to be her middle name. But not for the reasons you might think. You see, she’s an activist. She means well. She just maybe doesn’t think things through as well as she should LOL Jake Simmon is the Vice President’s son. He’s home from the military trying to re-coop from injuries both physical and mental. He has serious survival’s guilt and PTSD. These two are an unlikely pair, but they also fit perfectly together. They’ve known each other since they were children but it took them becoming adults to really see one another. And what they see they really really like 🙂
This book really captivated me. I couldn’t wait to read what happened next and I really got invested in their relationship journey. It was very sexy and sweet and hugely poignant. Excellent job Nichole Chase! I cannot wait to read more and more …
