Book 3, American Queen
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
They say that every tragic hero has a fatal flaw, a secret sin, a tiny stitch sewn into his future since birth. And here I am. My sins are no longer secret. My flaws have never been more fatal. And I’ve never been closer to tragedy than I am now.
I am a man who loves, a man whose love demands much in return. I am a king, a king who was foolish enough to build a kingdom on the bones of the past. I am a husband and a lover and a soldier and a father and a president.
And I will survive this.
Long live the king.
One Heart. One Life. ❤️
I have been eagerly awaiting this book and after the ending of American Prince, I couldn't wait to see how it all would end. This book and series were better than I could have ever imagined. American King is book 3 in the New Camelot series and is not a standalone. It should only be read after enjoying the previous 2 books, American Queen and American Prince.
Each book in this series has had my emotions all over the place. One minute I am smiling and filled with joy and the next, I am crying and clutching my chest so my heart doesn't fall out and shatter. There is love, jealousy, mystery, heartache, angst, tension, political drama, and don't even get me started on the heat. In true Sierra fashion, this book is nuclear hot and I am still shocked that my kindle didn't catch on fire. Whether it was Ash and Greer, Embry and Ash, Greer and Embry, or all three of them together, the result was always the same - sizzling, scalding, don't look directly at the sun HOT .
I found this book to be the most introspective and intense of the trilogy. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough to find out what curve ball would be next, but at the same time I wanted to savor every moment. It tied together so many different memories and events throughout the series, binding them all so tightly and irrevocably that they all wove together seamlessly. There were times I would have to reread passages because there was so much depth and raw emotion spilling out on the page. The writing was stellar (as always) and every word had purpose. It was all so much and yet because I have grown to love these characters so profoundly, it was also not enough. I will always want more. More Ash. More Embry. More Greer.
This series pushed me out of my normal comfort zone and challenged me to look at things with new eyes and I am forever grateful to Sierra Simone for that gift. Her twist on the classic story of King Arthur was brilliant and I definitely appreciated the Afterword which gave us insight into this stunning new fairy tale. This series is not to be missed!

Amazing conclusion! - Lots of tears
My mind is a blur with emotions after finishing American King. This book was everything I hoped it would be. This is the third book in the trilogy and I couldn't wait to dig in. There was a lot of sexy time with the threesome which I couldn't get enough of. Ash, Greer and Embry are magical. The story is a tangled web that was fascinating to watch unwind. There are a lot of tears and a major book hangover as I sit trying to collect my thoughts. I didn't want this trilogy to end. These characters have become near and dear to my heart. Sierra Simone has created something magical in these books. Be prepared to stay glued to your seat and come with a box of tissue. This is one of those stories that will live on in your heart forever. Amazing!
Book of the Year!!
Note - if you have not read American Queen and American Prince, please read those first.
I have no words. This was beautiful, heartbreaking, lovely....I need to process everything before I can write a proper review.
Here I am a day after finishing this book and I still feel like my review couldn't do this book or series justice.
I'm going to say it, this is the best book I've read all year. This is a series that people that love to read should read. It's not a book that can be read when you're not all in to read. I think to truly appreciate every word and feeling in this book, you have to pay attention and savor every second uof it. This is all Sierra Simone - her writing is pure perfection.
I was torn between reading this book as fast as I could to get the story to see how life is for Greer, Ash, and Embry and stopping at every chapter and swimming in all my emotions.
I don't think it's a spoiler to tell you that this is an emotional journey. But that's all I'll say about that.
American King is a love story, BUT it is SO much more. It is about love, love over time, respect, loyalty, family.
I cannot give any spoilers away because this book MUST be experienced blindly - don't read spoilers, give our King your attention and he will deliver.
