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.

American Queen was an out-of-body reading experience. Mind over matter. It was filth wrapped in sophistication. All the literature and religious references made it all the more alluring, add to that the hypnotizing power play, multiple layers and revelations. And I am giving this book a resounding five stars mainly because the story and most especially the characters on their own made me ponder and go outside of the box. How does this guttural relationship work? How in the world does this kind of carnality translate to the so called true love? And why did it trigger so much in me as a reader? I cursed a lot and threw tantrums while reading this book. I was sorry for Greer, for Ash for Embry. It was just this massive emotion filled with so many underneath that I can’t explain. I felt ashamed of myself at the same time I felt like one learned, classy reader. And the love that resonated amongst the characters was something I still can’t fathom, but really, I couldn’t even question it because I felt it. Their love was piercing and inclusive. How Sierra Simone made it happen, I don’t even know. The genius that she is pushed me to go over and beyond my limit and by god she was successful. I know there’s more to unravel, more domination and submission, more monstrosities, more unbelievable hotness. I can’t wait to dig deeper into this series I have dubbed as insanity. Drop everything else, be brave and read this!
