American Queen (New Camelot Book 1) by Sierra Simone

This is the first book in the New Camelot Series.

My name is Greer Galloway, and I serve at the pleasure of the President of the United States.

When I was a girl, I received a warning. Keep your kisses to yourself.

Twice I ignored it, and twice my heart was utterly, miserably broken. I didn’t need to learn my lesson a third time. Instead, I swore off love forever.

But President Colchester hasn’t sworn me off–not by a long shot.

I knew him as Ash, the soldier I once kissed in a circle of broken glass. I haven’t forgotten his broken promises and forbidden desires. But the country knows him as the leader of the free world, all that stands between us and war.

Desperate to have me, Ash sends his best friend Embry to bring me to him. He doesn’t know about the secrets we also keep. Our own tragedies. Our own cravings. The second kiss. Soon, I find myself caught between past and present, pleasure and pain–and the two men who long for each other as much as they long for me. And as war and betrayal press ever closer, we tumble headlong into a passionate love affair that will change the world.

I absolutely loved this book. The characters are fantastic and I loved the story.

I think I’ve fallen in love with Ash. I love his story. I love how dominant he is and yet behind that is a lost man. I just love him.

Embry was a great character as well. He’s battling his feelings for both of them and I loved seeing him open up and become free at the end.

Greer was great. I loved seeing how she first met both men and the circumstances which made that happen. Her life-long love for Ash was sweet, but Ash’s choices pushed her to Embry at the time.

Watching the Ash and Greer reconnect was great and then seeing them eventually open up and Embry as the icing on the cake. I loved seeing them both bring Embry into their marriage and all three of them open up together.

The spice was off the charts, especially with Ash being a Dominant. The dynamic between him and Greer was fantastic, but adding Embry to the mix at the end made it even better.

The underlying story with the war in the past and the current situation was good. Greer’s cousin’s actions was a surprise, and yet it also wasn’t. She was toxic and I have no idea why Greer kept her in her life. I’m intrigued to see how the story will continue and I can’t wait to read the next book.

Overall, this book was absolutely fantastic and I would definitely recommend it.

My rating: 5/5*
