MEET YOUR NEXT ROYAL #RoyalsRule
For this stop on the tour, I'm bringing you a different kind of royalty.
I'm bringing American Royalty.
The New Camelot series by Sierra Simone featuring:
Now, let's get down to the reason Ash, Greer, and Embry should be your next royal read.
What can I possibly say about this book that hasn't already been said? Has it all been said? I'm sure it has. Despite the fact I know I am so incredibly late to this Sierra Simone/American Queen party, I am going to put words down to describe my feelings. Maybe. Hopefully.
I want to feel like my veins are being sliced open by the sheer desire of someone powerful, I want to be handled and cherished and used and worshiped. I want a man or woman to claim me as their equal partner in every way--until we're alone. Then I want to crawl to them.
If this line didn't hook you, I'm not sure you should be reading this. American Queen is intense. It's the story of a girl who is told to keep her kisses to herself. It's the story of a girl who falls in love with a man ten years her senior. It's the story of a girl who falls in love with her first lover. It's the story of love. All-consuming, over-powering, gut-wrenching love.
Right now, I was a vessel of pooling want, I was ready to be whatever he wanted me to be, ready to crawl into his veins and make him mine.
The emotions in this book are raw. Raw emotion drives this book. Primal instincts. Love. The desire, the want, the need. This perfect trifecta that couldn't be more beautiful if it tried.
"You're with me," he grunted in my ear as he continued to force his way in and out of my virgin cunt. "You're not with him. You're giving this to me."
I'm not sure if I even have words for this scene. This scene is the end and the beginning of something so much more than love, want, or need. It's the coming together of two souls who are hurting for another. It's the ripping apart of two hearts who just want one thing they can't have.
"You want to take care of me? Then fucking own me. Wreck me. Tear me up and sew me back together the way that only you know how."
Yes, please, yes. Do you feel the intensity? The urge? The desire to be controlled? The desire to be owned? The desire, want, and need to please?
"I kissed him because even though he's broken my heart twice in ten years, I still think he looks beautiful in the winter moonlight. Because sometimes I think I might literally die from wanting to feel his lips on mine."
You feel it now, don't you? That love? That fire that's burning through every page of this book? The slow burn?
"Just because you want to forget who you are doesn't mean the rest of us can forget you."
This is the story I wanted as soon as Embry became a key player in American Queen. As soon as his importance was realized, I wanted this book. There’s nothing like being inside Embry’s mind and I don’t think I’ll ever get enough.
”Oh, trust me, Lieutenant Colchester, I always keep both eyes on a man directly beneath me. Both hands too.”
I think this is the first time I shivered while reading this book. Yes, shivered. It was such an honest, open statement and it was so ridiculously cocky that I couldn’t help but love Embry just a little bit more here.
"I’ll take you any way I can have you. If all you’ll give me is a few stolen nights, then that’s what I’ll take.”
This relationship had never been easy. Kept in the dark, hidden from those around them, their romance was always going to be a scandal. Now that they are older, wiser, and even more involved? Now that two have become three? The truth of the relationship is still hiding in the dark.
“No, sweetheart, You’re sick.”
“I am. I know I am. We both are. That’s why he likes us.”
“I am. I know I am. We both are. That’s why he likes us.”
”Your discipline belongs to me.”
It was fate, obviously, even though I didn't believe in fate. But it felt fated: there could be nothing in my life that wasn't connected to Ash.
This book has left me broken, torn in to three pieces, and I'm not sure if I'll recover. I ran the gamut of emotions between the covers of this book. I've been hurt and I just hope I can be repaired.
5 “You are more dangerous wielding love than you are wielding pain” Stars
It took me eleven days to read this book.
Eleven days where I hurt and cried and felt pain.
Eleven days when I felt unconditional love, devotion, and magic.
Eleven days where I was terrified I would be broken.
I was broken.
I was hurt.
I was in pain.
I was elated.
I was happy.
I was in love.
Eleven days where my mind, body, and soul were held captive.
Eleven days where my happiness, sadness, and contentment were handled by the King.
Eleven days where I fought, and bled, wanted, and needed more from my Prince.
Eleven days where the Queen ruled.
Should you read this book? Yes.
Should you savor this book? Yes.
Should you devour this book? Yes.
I'm not sure how you can both savor and devour a book, but make it happen.
Eleven days was too long.
Eleven days wasn't long enough.
The New Camelot is waiting.

Do I need to write something else here to convince you that you want to read this series? Is there something I could have said? Do you need to know why they are royalty? Or why they should be the next books you pick up?
I hope I don't need to explain. I'm hoping my reviews said all I needed to say.
