American Queen (1)
About this deal
The reader will find themselves consumed with the passions that these three share among them. I was astonished, and naively so, at the jealousy each of them felt because of the other loving another. At times it seemed that the Master had his two loves, the little prince and the little princess. At other times, it felt like Greer and Embry had their own private love affair outside of the trio. The author guides us slowly and gently into the love and passion the two men have for one another. The confusion that Greer felt. The anger she felt for Embry having been cast aside. The knowledge that it was Embry's rejection of Ash that made it possible for Ash to find her. Greer feels an inexplicable tug to experience these two men in their need for one another. But Ash Colchester hasn't sworn off Greer--not at all. Still in love with the girl he once kissed in a circle of broken glass, this soldier-turned-President has never forgotten the taste of her kiss or the sound of her whispered, yes, please against his mouth. He's never forgotten the promises he wanted to make her and couldn't because she was too young for him then, and far too innocent for the things he needs. But he can't wait any longer . . . I hate this book so much that I don’t even want to write a review. It just kept getting worse the more I continued so I fully read till 30%, skimmed till 77%, and had to jump to the end.
I'm going to try my best to not reveal anything about this book that is spoiler-ish, so I beg your forgiveness for what could be a fairly vague review. Description: It starts with a stolen kiss under an English sky, and it ends with a walk down the aisle. I feel like this is one of those series that will be unforgettable to me. I can’t imagine forgetting these characters or the way these books made me feel, ever. Ash, Greer, and Embry will have a special place in my heart. I can’t even tell you which character I loved most. They were a three and I loved them all equally. This book was truly exceptional. One of the things I loved most about this one in particular, is we got the perspective of Ash, Greer, and Embry. I loved hearing from all three of them in their final book. I think we, as readers, needed that. Especially the Ash POV. We shiver with the sizzling chemistry that Ash perceived from just one encounter with the 16 year old Greer and how he held his love for her close until he could finally claim her for his own. Equally titillating is Embry and Greer's shared passion. Yet, for how much each of the characters loves the other, the persistent drumbeat of jealousies continue to trouble them, until...? Greer Galloway has grown up in politics. It’s what she knows. But she never imagined she would catch the eye of the President. Gah! What can I say about this book. Not giving anything away. Nope. Just READ IT!
In typical Sierra Simone fashion, I was entranced by the emotions of the main characters, especially Greer, and the spice was SPICYYY. I've always felt like Sierra Simone does a great job creating intimacy, even without/before physical touch, and then once the physical touch happens, it's like a spontaneous combustion of emotion, sensuality, exploration, acceptance, and need. That's precisely what I got in AQ.
Did I forget to mention that Ash is now the President of the good ol US of A, and certainly hasn’t forgotten about Greer. Sorry about that…….. They meet again 5 years later but are so stunned by the turn of events , it tears their hearts......so did mine Perhaps Embry's always had the part of me that wielded the sword, but she... she's always owned the part that wears the crown.
It starts with buried secrets and dangerous desires…and ends with the three of us bound together with a hateful love sharper than any barbed wire. Ash tells Greer that after all these years he is still in love with her (eye role) and so they immediately become a couple. 💙 I kept hearing about this one in a Facebook group that I am in, so I had to see what all the fuss was about. American Queen, book 1 is Greer’ story detailing her life, upbringing, first love, first kiss, first lover and how she came to marry the most powerful man on earth while earning the love and commitment of his best friend. American Queen, told from Greer’s POV, will be followed by books from Maxen and Embry’s POVs. It’s an unconventional and forbidden love triangle. Center stage a commanding, devious, secretive, conflicted yet ruthless Maxen Ashley Colchester.
