Sworn to have their lover's back, front, or any other side that needs covering. Secret Service agent Kent Sinclair, head of POTUS security, thought himself prepared for every contingency. Until the First Lady-a woman who barely tolerates his presence-approaches him with a request that startles the hell out of him. Carlene Broderick is frightened. With the weight of the country and impending war on his shoulders, her husband, James, is buckling under the strain. The key to helping him cope is the name he calls out in his sleep-and it's not hers. It belongs to his fellow ex-SEAL team buddy. His ex-lover. Kent. Without hesitation, Kent plunges into treacherous emotional territory, only to realize it's not really him that James needs. The Commander in Chief needs to give up complete control in the bedroom. To relieve that much pressure, Kent and Carlene must work together and declare a truce that rapidly heats up into something more. Something that leaves James caught deep in forbidden territory-torn between his beloved wife and the man he's never stopped loving. Warning: Contains three forty-somethings discovering whole new sides of themselves, a rejuvenated marriage, and plenty of kinky fun. All brought to you by an ex-SEAL in a wetsuit, a bisexual President, and a First Lady with a tattoo on her ass.

Liked the story and the dynamics and interplay between the 3 main characters, especially liked Carlene.  A nice twist on a POTUS story!!! First story by this author but won't be the last.

Two men, one woman, and the tense world of White House politics doesn’t sound like the ideal recipe for a HEA romance. Gallagher represents the POV’s of both 2 male and 1 female characters as they struggle to find the sort of trust that would allow the POTUS to function under difficult circumstances, and the kind of permanent love that would bind them together even after the emergencies are over. This book represents a complex and intriguing read about a threesome with just enough light BDSM to keep the reader on the edge of the seat.

One of the best books I've read this year. Fabulous tension and takes the erotic nature to a whole level while dealing with the sensitivity of a threesome in a perfect manner. The pacing was snappy and all around an enjoyable read.

It was almost believable which I found amazing! The relationship between Kent and Carlene kept me interested in the story.  The politics got in the way for me but, hey, it’s a story about a politician.
