Today at The Hive, we are privileged to by joined by Carter Wade, best friend to Senator Maxwell Joseph and father to Kenzie Wade. He has agreed to sit down with Sally for an exclusive interview. Let's tune in now...
Sally: What was the first thing that ran through your head when Max said that the woman he’d been seen in Paris with was Kenzie?
Carter: Honestly, I thought it was a mistake. He had said that there were pictures of him with a younger woman. Initially I thought that he meant someone had taken a few photos of he and Kenzie
Sally: Did you really have no clue up until that moment?
Carter: Call me naive, but Kenzie had never had a serious boyfriend. I really thought she was a virgin. And even if she hadn’t been, I would have never thought my little girl would be into…well…being a “little girl.”
Sally: Looking back on everything—now that you have the big picture—can you see the signs?
Carter: The way that they both kept away from each other when I was in the rom, I thought they didn’t like each other. Now I know that they were trying to hide their feelings from me. I should have known something was up with Max though. He’d never gone anywhere near seven months without asking me to arrange a visit from a special friend.
Sally: How did it feel punching your best friend in the face when you found out he slept with your daughter?
Carter: I probably overreacted, but at the time…I mean, she’s my little girl, and I knew what he’d done with her. I also originally thought that he had seduced her.
Sally: Do you think they’re really in love?
Carter: I worry that Kenzie is too young to know what love really is. I was her age when I decided to marry her mother. I thought I was in love, but it didn’t work out so well. As for Max, yeah, he’s head over heels. He’d never give up all other women and potentially his career if he wasn’t.
Sally: Some people think that the age difference between them is insurmountable and that they’ll be split up within a year. What’s your opinion on that? Will their relationship last?
Carter: I am worried about the age difference. The thing is, Kenzie has always been a mature soul. She’s had more adult friends than child friends her entire life. The things that I worry about are his career and children. I just hope they have discussed that and are on the same page.
Sally: You sound like you’ve really come to terms with this news. Is it still a struggle for you sometimes?
Carter: I knew that Kenzie would find a guy at some point, but yeah, it’s hard to see her with anyone. The fact that it’s Max, and over the years he’s been very forthcoming with me about his sexual exploits, makes it even worse. I just try not to think of that part of their relationship.
Sally: So what’s next in terms of your career? Will you continue to be Senator Joseph’s top political advisor?
Carter: I love working with Max and I think he’s got what it takes to go far. I’ll work with him as long as he thinks I’m doing a good job. Of course this is all contingent on how he treats my little girl. If he does anything to hurt her, I’d never be able to work with him.
Sally: Last question—what does your future hold? Since Max and Kenzie both have important people in their lives, does that mean that you’re next? Are there any good prospects?
Carter: Well, I think that Max’s career and the careers of others will keep me busy. I’m not really looking for a relationship. I tried the whole marriage thing once. I just don’t think it’s for me.
Sally: Thank you for taking the time to sit with me today and answer these questions! It’s always nice to get a look into the minds of characters!
Well, there you have it! An exclusive interview with Carter Wade, only on The Hive! Thanks for joining us!
Senator Maxwell Joseph has it all—money, power, and good looks—the trifecta when it comes to attracting the ladies. He even has women willing to be tied up, spanked, and completely at his mercy, all while calling him Daddy, fulfilling his secret fantasy. On the night of his thirty-fifth birthday, Max finds a goddess waiting for him in his hotel room. She is beautiful, sexy, and very willing, yet the fruit she offers is very forbidden. Not only is she barely legal at nineteen, but she also happens to be the daughter of his best friend and political advisor.
Mackenzie Wade has had a crush on the senator for years. When an overheard phone call affords her the opportunity she needs to make her fantasies a reality, Kenzie jumps at the chance, offering herself as a birthday gift.
Throwing caution to the wind, Max gives in to temptation and gives them both what they have been yearning for—a night filled with ropes, floggers, and toe-curling sex. Although satiated, one night of passion isn’t enough for either of them, and they begin a clandestine affair.
For Maxwell, the solid ground on which he’s built his career starts to shift as his hopes and dreams for the future begin to change. In what can only be described as a landslide, Max holds on tight to the only thing that he can—Kenzie. He goes on the ride of his life, knowing all along that in the end, he may have to make a gut-wrenching decision between the woman of his dreams and a path to the White House.
