AT THE PLEASURE OF THE
PRESIDENT is the final book in the Perfect Gentlemen series that I have been looking forward
to reading. This final story is about the most famous person in this
group who became the President of the United States. I was really
hoping to see what made Zack Hayes one of the Perfect Gentlemen of
Creighton Academy and to finally see who he really is. I can honestly
say that Shayla Black and Lexi Blake did not disappoint me. This series
is about conspiracy, murder, strong friendships, loyalty, and love.
The series began with the murder of the wife of the future President
which leads to several conspiracies. A few years after Zack becomes
President, one of the Perfect Gentlemen (Maddox Crawford) is
murdered which leads to more conspiracies. This murder will send his
friends into a tailspin. All the men in this group are powerful in their
own rights. Gabe Bond is a business mogul who along with his better
half, Everly, will discover disturbing information that revealed that
Maddox was murdered. Connor Sparks is a CIA operative who meets
the love of his life, Lara, when articles from her tabloid threaten his
friend Zack. Then there is Naval officer Dax Spencer who meets his
mate NCIS Agent Holland when she investigates the death of his father.
And then finally there is Roman Calder who is Chief of Staff for his best
friend, President Zack Hayes. Roman is the complex one of the group
who once had a heated affair with Gus, which eventually will be
Now we finally get to see a side of Zack that we never saw in the
previous books. Elizabeth Matthews serves as the Press Secretary for
Zack. There were always unresolved feelings between Zack and
Elizabeth. But the day finally comes when Zack and Elizabeth seize the
moment. This is when you get to see why Zack was one of the Perfect
Gentlemen. The true revelations behind all the conspiracies will put a
strain on the relationship between Zack and Elizabeth. All of the
unanswered questions will finally be resolved along with what really
happened to Maddox.
This is a great series that makes you wonder about what can happen in
politics, especially regarding the White House. It also shows what
strong friendships and love looks like and how far one would go when
these things are threatened. The end of AT THE PLEASURE OF THE PRESIDENT left me with the
hope of a possible spin-off with the offspring of the Perfect Gentlemen!
The thrilling conclusion of the twisting, page-turning
Perfect Gentlemen seriesâ€¦
Decades ago, ambitious Zack Hayes set his sights on the
White House. Heâ€™s worked his whole life to become the leader
of the free worldâ€”attending the right schools, marrying the
perfect brideâ€”all to aid his campaign. He didnâ€™t realize
someone behind the scenes has been pulling the strings to
manipulate Zack and the country he loves into a dangerous
positionâ€”one he will risk his life to wrench free from. The
one thing he canâ€™t risk is Elizabeth Matthews.
From the moment she met Zack Hayes, Liz felt the connection.
Serving as his campaign manager and then his press
secretary, she accepted that her love for him would remain
unrequited. Still, sheâ€™d thought they were friends, so when
he pushed her aside, she felt the stab in her heart. And
when she realizes heâ€™s done it to protect her, nothing will
stop Liz from standing by his sideâ€”not even the men who
would use her as a weapon against him.
As shocking secrets are revealed, Zack and Liz find succor
and passion in each otherâ€™s arms. When the ultimate villain
shows his face, Zack may have to choose between his country
and the woman he lovesâ€¦
