It starts with a stolen kiss under an English sky, and it ends with a walk down the aisle. It starts with the President sending his best friend to woo me on his behalf, and it ends with my heart split in two. 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.
My name is Greer Galloway, and I serve at the pleasure of the President of the United States.
This is the story of an American Queen.
I had to let my Kindle cool before I wrote my review… 🥂
Some time passed between when I first started reading American Queen and when I finished it. It wasn’t because I didn’t enjoy what I had read, more my commitments demanded I put it aside. What happened next was I was in the mood for something else and so it remained on my kindle partially read.
Given my stopping and starting again I wasn’t surprised It took me a little bit to get back into the story. Once I did get back into it, I was hooked and read the remaining 70+% in one sitting.
Without sharing details of the story, my first thoughts were Greer’s personal life was complicated before she combined it with Ash and his political life. His fixation with being called Mr. President cracked me up. I don’t believe it was meant to be humorous but I couldn’t take it seriously. Then there were a few moments where Greer’s common sense flew out the door. I knew she would find herself in trouble and while it wasn’t always instant, it left the door open for drama to catch up with her later.
With so many people holding back information in one form or another, the suspense is building. A lot is revealed but there will be more to come to light in the following books. Merlin Rhys appears to have a lot more control over the political landscape than has been outlined so far but why he has that power is yet to be revealed. He could easily be a red herring but only time will tell if I’m right.
For the early chapters of the book, Greer is a young astute teenager with the story being focused on scene setting rather than relationship driven. That all changes once the story returns to where it began with Greer walking down the aisle to meet her fiancé.
The story is told in past and present chapters from Greer’s POV along with revelations from Ash and Embry. Be prepared for a cliffhanger ending with the knowledge the next book, American Prince has been published so there is no waiting.
