Hunter Ford has led what anyone from the outside would call a privileged life. He’s from an affluent and influential family, and it looks like their prominence is only set to rise. But for Hunter, the restrictions and chains that come with the ‘perks’ just don’t seem enough to make him happy–like being stuck on his uncle’s campaign for Vice President. And to make him even less happy, his uncle has hired Steve, an image consultant, to make sure he doesn’t mess anything up. Steve knows Hunter will be difficult and Hunter certainly doesn’t want him around–but will they be able to find some common ground since they’re stuck with each other? And what might the tension between them give way to if it breaks?
This is definitely one of my favorite installments in this series. We’ve had a glimpse of Hunter before, so it’s nice to get more of an understanding of his story and who (and why) he is. The build and dynamic between Steve and Hunter is intriguing and it’s wonderful to see the character growth that occurs here. It feels natural–not forced–and seems to fit in with their personalities (both as individuals and together).
