His First Lady by Avery Scott – Review by Karyn Taylor

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

His First Lady by Avery Scott is a fantastic ‘fake romance’ novel. I am a fan of fake romance novels so was really looking forward to reading this one and it certainly did not disappoint. I had never read any work by Avery Scott before and if this book is anything to go by then I’m sure I will read more of her work.
Michael Reese is a candidate for the job of President of the USA. His campaign manager Tom decides that to improve his chances of winning, then he needs a ‘First Lady’, well not a real one, a fake one. Michael chooses his speechwriter Kendall to become his ‘love interest’. It certainly helps that as well as being intelligent and great at her job, Kendall is also beautiful.
Once they are thrown together, Kendall and Michael both realise that they have so much in common and actually really enjoy being in each other’s company.
The plan is for Kendall to jilt Michael at the altar but as the wedding gets closer and closer both realise that they would really like for the wedding to be real and not fake. But do they admit this to each other? Of course not! That wouldn’t make for good reading. This book has so much angst as Kendall and Michael fight their growing feelings for each other which makes this book a page turner.
This book is very well written and has fantastic characters. I loved both Michael and Kendall, whereas I really wanted to punch Tom, the campaign manager is the face so many times. I’m of the opinion that if an author can get you to hate a character then they have done a great job with that character.
I’d definitely recommend this book.

This is my first read by this author and I enjoyed how different it was. Micheal is a candidate for president but his rating aren’t where they need to be, so they find him a girlfriend named Kendall.(I love her!) They find themselves in a tough situation and end up engaged. Even though this is just a “job” the chemistry is off the carts between those two and lines are blurred between Job and reality will they be able to keep everything professional?
I really liked this book and I am looking forward to reading more by this author. I would recommend to a friend.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

His First Lady by Avery Scott is a political romance story. Michael Reese is a politician running for President. He has a reputation as a lady’s man and his campaign adviser has the idea he needs a steadfast, loyal companion on the trail with Michael. Kendall Bailey is Michael’s speechwriter and gets wrangled into being the “girlfriend”.
The story and characters are good. The writing is easy to follow and allows this to be a quick read. This was a bit formulaic at times but still enjoyable. I was easily able to predict where the story would go. Personally, I prefer a bit of a twist or turn to the story but I liked this was because it was an easy, fast read. It allowed me to escape daily life and get away for a bit. I will be looking for more from Avery Scott in the future to see where she goes next in her storytelling.

His First Lady by Avery Scott, is an amazing read that shows even when something is supposed to stay fake, chemistry and passion can draw two together and not be anything near fake. Michael is a senior congressman and Presidential hopeful who has already been divorced twice and has a reputation of a ladies man. Many of his campaign people think that this could be damning to him and they decide that having a “first lady” will help him in many ways. That is where his new speech writer, Kendall comes in. Add in chemistry and a touch of drama and see what happens when things aren’t as fake as what they both think it is.
Avery Scott gave us a well written story with amazing characters. Me as a reader loves stories like this and it did not disappoint. I love that Avery gave us a story that pushes her characters to the wall and out of their confront zones. I give this book 4 stars and would love to read more from this author in the futures.

His First Lady by Avery Scott was a sassy political fake relationship romance. I have been on a fake relationship trope lately but I wasn’t too sure on the political part of this book. But Avery’s writing had me glued to my kindle; I even read at the dinner table because I needed to keep reading.

Michael Reese is a 2-time divorcé who is running for president and according to his campaign manager (who I wanted to punch a few times) is in need of a girlfriend. Looking over the staff meeting table Michael lays eyes on his speech-writer Kendall. These two had amazing chemistry and could flirt with the best. The only problem I had with them is that they needed better communication but I would add that as a learning curve. Could Kendall really be his First Lady?

If you’re looking for a funny fake relationship romance with a little bit of politics mixed in, you will like this book.

Presidential candidate Michael Reese thinks his campaign manager Tom is crazy when he suggests Michael find a pretend girlfriend to soften his playboy image. On a whim, he glances around at the females on his team and discovers his only option there is his speech writer, Kendall. Wanting someone he can already trust for the job, he asks and she reluctantly accepts. After all, what could go wrong?! While the premise of this story is not new, I still loved how Avery Scott told this story. Kendall is a great character who seems to fight herself the entire book, trying to figure out how she really feels. She seems tailor made for Michael and the tasks at hand, managing it all like a pro. She tries to stay professional, but who can resist a man like Michael?! The note at the end of the book from Aver y Scott promises extra scenes from the book on her website, but the website seems to be down, so now I’m begging Avery Scott for a sequel! I thoroughly enjoyed these characters and would love to read more about them! Overall, a great, quick read! I give “His First Lady” by Avery Scott four stars!

Michael Reese is running for President of the United States in His First Lady by Avery Scott. Michael’s campaign manager believes that the twice divorced Reese needs a First Lady to help generate votes. Kendall Bailey is the candidate’s speechwriter who also happens to be in the wrong place at the right time when Michael agrees to taking on a First Lady. In the beginning Kendall balks at the idea but once she gets to know Michael, she changes her mind. Will being in the spotlight help or hurt Michael’s campaign? Will Kendall be able to fake her position or will she even need to fake her feelings?
While I don’t normally like political reads, I did enjoy this story. I loved the pluckiness of Kendall and the charisma of Michael. This was an easy story to read and flowed quite well. If you are a reader looking for a fun story with a different kind of story line do yourself a favor and read this book.

Four Stars

Every man needs a first lady that isn’t going to bring him down but make him stronger. To struggle with him and to win with him. Kendall is a perfect first lady and Michael couldn’t have better. I really enjoyed the story. The author gave us the behind the scene view of politics. Which is mostly a bunch of men and women trying to get ahead. There are many that care but most are looking for careers. I think I would vote for Michael. We need more people who have lived at the bottom but made it to the top. People that are driven to be more and do more. The story was classic in its path but unique in the delivery. The characters were flawed but showed growth and a need to be better. You see how past experiences effect your judgement even when that’s not how you wanted it to go.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

His First Lady by Avery Scott is a sweet romance contemporary story that is easy to read. The story is well written and a nice easy read but it also frustrated me and I wanted to shake some of the characters. The main characters were likeable but I felt the story and the characters themselves were lacking. The premise for the story is great but I wanted more. More depth, more wonder, more intensity, just more. I did like the humour throughout which made it fun.

Michael Reese is a Presidential candidate and is happy with his life. He has been married twice & divorced and a bit of a lady’s man. When his overbearing campaign manager decides he needs to find a woman, a First Lady is when the fun begins.

Kendall Bailey is the new girl on the block, and his speech writer. She has worked for a few candidates before so she knows the drill but when she is propositioned for another position by the Presidential candidate she is blown away.

It is a nice and easy and fun read.

5 Stars

This was my first book by this author and I sincerely enjoyed it. The storyline was different yet familiar if that makes sense. Some things were predictable yet I loved watching what I thought would happen happen, and then some things were not predictable and I loved those just as much.

I read this in one sitting because it was that easy to read and flowed beautifully. There was no added “fluff” making every word meaningful, and it was just such a sweet story and I can not wait to read more from this author. The characters were all great and some things that I thought might happen during this story, things that worried me did not ever happen and I’m so glad this author steered away from this drama that could have played out. That probably doesn’t make any sense, but if you read the book, you will understand.

I loved it and highly recommend it to anyone that wants to read a seriously good story that will have you experiencing all the feels

Can’t wait for more from this author!
