There are no words that will ever fully satisfy me to use to describe this book. No, this entire series.
Nothing can describe the pain of loss and separation, the angst and misery of acceptance for circumstances beyond the King’s control, the elation of three people who are simply destined to be together and love each other beyond the conventions of society and its ideals of what love is and how marriage should look.
Nothing prepared me for the overwhelming push of emotion, the tears that came from some of the most beautiful words I have ever been privileged to read. Are there words to convey the sensuality and sexual pull between two of the strongest men and the drive they have between them to push each other to have more, to be more and to accept nothing less than everything? Mind, heart, body and soul. All or nothing. How do I describe Greer Galloway in this final book of the series – her supreme grace under tremendous pressure, her love for her King and her Prince, her fireball of naughtiness. And a back bone. She was regal, every bit the queen that Ash and Embry called her.
I loved these three incredible people so much. Just so very much.
The respect that I felt for President Maxen Ashley Colchester because he was true to himself, his feelings, and his convictions. He didn’t care about societal norms and the fact that he loved two people. He loved his country. He simply wanted peace for his people and in his own home. Ash was power, prowess and dominance. He elevated the room with his presence and he brought a queen and a prince to their knees with his love. The decisions that he had to face are not ones that should be wished upon anyone, but he commanded with brilliance, working behind the scenes to do what was best, not looking for any praise or a pat on the head. This role was Ash’s destiny.
I could say so much more about this series. I could talk volumes about the connection to Arthurian legend, the amazing secondary cast that is vital to this trilogy, or the politics of the story and how those politics mirror what is going on in our world even as I write this. I will simply say this. This series – and definitely American King – is not just the retelling of a legendary tale with a modern twist. It isn’t just a story full of some of the very best sex scenes ever written. It isn’t just some regular love story. This was an experience, one that must be fully embraced, devoured and held close to your heart. It was thought provoking, heartbreaking, absolutely astonishing. It was sinful, decadent and breathtaking. The New Camelot series is without fail the very best series that I have had the joy to read.
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.
