We fell in love during the campaign. The stakes were high. Reputations could have been ruined. Scandal hovered over us like a cloud. Now the man I love is the President of the United States of America. And it's not my vote he's after. He wants it all - my heart, my body, my soul. He wants me by his side. In the White House. Normalcy will be gone from my life, privacy forgotten. I am only 23. I just wanted to play a part in history. But it seems like history wasn't done with me.

This book is one large ode of love between FLOTUS and POTUS. There is no really storyline and the couple doesn't go through any trials and there is no plot. This was a waste of a credit!

Now that Dimple Shah has graduated, she's ready for a break from her family - especially from Mamma's inexplicable obsession with her finding the Ideal Indian Husband. Ugh. But Dimple knows that her mother must respect that she isn't interested in doing that right now - otherwise she wouldn't have paid for her to attend a summer program for aspiring web developers, right?

I found the character of Mia to be one of the most frustrating characters I've ever listened to. The story line takes a turn halfway through and becomes dark and depressing. I did finish book 2 and decided not to continue on to book 3. I wanted to listen to something light and uplifting not dark and depressing! listener beware.

It's a shame that he got her pregnant.
