A man with the world at his feet, and he stole a kiss from me.

It should have ended there, since I had no idea who he was. Except that kiss was caught by someone's camera, and now the picture is splashed on tabloids all over the world. I should have recognized him: Prince Alexander of Cambridge.

Royal bad boy.

Exiled heir to the throne.

He's controlling. He's demanding. He'

When he kissed me, I was shocked. He was a stranger and still so familiar. It wasn't until I woke up to my picture splashed on the cover of tabloids that I realized I knew who he was.

Prince Alexander of Cambridge.

Royal bad boy.

Exiled heir to the throne.

He isn't Prince Charming. He's controlling. He's demanding. He's dangerous. And I can't say no to him.

We both have secrets—secrets that could tear us apart or drive us closer together—

Robotic writing full of clichés and cheesy lines. Eye-roll worthy characters. Plot brought nothing new, it was just constant back and forth with plenty of sex in between. I think it is time for me to make a clean break with erotic romance.

I actually liked this one a lot at the beginning. I've never read about a bad boy prince before and was very intrigued but as soon as I got to know the characters more it went a little downhill for me.

Alexander is the royal bad boy and rebel of the British royal family. Of course he is one of these troubled heros.
He doesn't do romantic or long-term relationships. When he meets Clara he is constantly drawn to her and just wants her for an exclusive sex relationship, not more. Clare is al

Command Me is the introduction to Geneva Lee’s patented Royals Saga trilogy. I’ve always loved reading books with badboys and royalty, but what really caught me was a prince and a commoner indulging in a tumultuous affair. It’s so much as a questionable as it is dangerous terrain to tread on.

So what’s this story all about?—Upon graduating from university, American gal, Clara travels to London to celebrate. While

I was genuinely impressed with this book. It was free on Amazon, I one-clicked it, and the next thing I know; I was reading it. I had absolutely no expectations, I thought it was going to be one of those books you start reading and then stop reading after a couple of chapters because you realize it’s not for you. I was wrong. So very wrong. Turns out, with only a few chapters, I was completely sucked in. I wanted more, I wanted to know what would happen next, and I couldn’

I was asking myself earlier why I keep reading books like this when it would usually just frustrate the hell out of me. You know the kind where there's a damaged guy with so many secrets, and then he meets a girl who's obviously going to be the game changer, but he acts like a douche, and tries to warn and scare her off and protect her from himself. Oh, and don't forget the miserable family drama too. Yes, that kind of story!

Sadly, I still have no idea why I enjoy torturing myself this way. But

I really liked this but there was something that held me from giving those two last stars. Maybe it was the fact that heroine let the villain get to her so easily or the fact that heroine "fell in love" so abruptly with the hero.

But this was definitely a sexy read and the hot sex scenes made up for the other mediocre stuff...

I will actually be starting the next book right away.

This book was such a refreshing surprise. As a reader that's beyond intrigued with the royal family, I loved loved loved reading a story about the fictional version. Command Me was a breath a fresh air, an angsty romance filled with drama and heat and tension. I'm not a reader of historical fiction, but a modern day romance with princes and kings and royal secrets was such a treat for me to get my hands on. And I really enjoyed every bit of it. The writing style of Geneva Lee pulled me in from t ...more

I had so many expectations for this book, and most of them were left unfulfilled. The erotica was not good, it was slightly too strong sometimes. I mean that Prince Alexander was too focused on the physical and therefore the intimate scenes were a bit too unrealistic. In addition, i did not get a connection with either Clara or Alexander, they were okay characters but still a little disappoiting. Also the constant intimacy destroyed the story a little, the rest was just extra content put togethe ...more

I'm a fan of these kinds of book. Reading this book was like watching a cheesy Nicholas Sparks movie only with LOTS OF SEX! A really simple love story with interesting characters and an interesting location and interesting background stories.
It's also totally a Fifty Shades fan fic - only with Royals....but as I said before, I love those stories.... I bet there's a name for them - I can only think of cheap or simple or bad? But I don't mean that in a bad way, because I really enjoyed reading it

Do you know this situation when you're on vacation and didn't bring enough to read? Well, that's exactly what happened to me!
I went somewhere for only one week and thought the second half of Winter (which means I had more than 400 pages left) would be enough because I never have much time to read on vacation. But it was not enough, haha :D So I had to go buy a book there and the only bookstore I found was really small, so my choice was limited. I felt like reading something hot and sexy and the

Oh My Gawwwd I don't know what's wrong with me, I feel like I'm reading the same book over and over again sometimes. This started out good for me and then it went to shit. I wanted to love it but it was way to similar to other series out there, I was getting dizzy from all of my eye rolling. Off to find another read and hope it's better then the last couple I've read.

2.5 Stars:)
4 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stars! I liked this one. A prince, who doesn’t love a prince? Right! I liked that the heroine came into her own and became a strong woman. I wish she could’ve told that Pepper bitch to fuck off sooner, I can already see she’s going to be a problem. Other woman drama.

Oh, yeah and get this his family is forbidding the relationship because she’s American! Lol....I want to see what happens next.

So tired of heroines unable to say no because the hero is so damn hot, have some dignity! You'd think these girls have never seen a decent looking guy EVER.

The Royal Douchebag put her on the cover of every magazine and the media is chasing her but all she cares about is what kind of underwear she's going to wear the day after she meets him and have sex?

3 Stars is pushing it. This book was full of repeat, repeat and more repeat. I struggled through it. Now that it has ended with a cliffhanger (Surprise!!). I am torn between buying the final book and trudging through it just to find closure or giving up all together. Thank goodness the final has not been released yet!

okay,so I wasn't going to write a review on this book, but then I thought "how can I not". It was that bad good.  So here comes another ranting review.

Command Me follows two leading characters. Clara and Alexander.... And I'm just gonna jump Right in on them. Clara is a way stronger written character than Alex (after reading this full review I don't know really how much that's going to say about her character). She's sassy and kind of funny, but honestly that's about it. She has a job doing..?

Well this book took me by pleasant surprise. It had a good story line and yes it is similar to many others in terms of a manwhore meeting a seemingly innocent girl. It has an interesting twist though with a royal prince.

Clara was an interesting character she had some demons in her past but has conquered them. She is quiet strong and confident but bends when she needs to. Overall I liked her and her resolve.

Confused and confusing

Very rarely do I post reviews far less for a negative one but if this review can save one person from what I just suffered through then so be it. it's a very bad sign when an author can't keep their own characters straight, can't use proper English and tosses in British words arbitrarily. the story is set in England but aside from the occasional word that's overused (poppet) there's nothing that even remotely says the story is about the royal family. and then comes my new f

Lots of great Alpha male sexiness. There were parts that made me yawn and there were parts that went back and forth with the same catty issues. But I like it and I'm in a maybe stage to Finish it with the book2.
This book is about an ordinary girl half Brit/half American falling for a guy she had no idea is the Prince. And the Prince has mouth on him that talks WOWsers"! I loved some of the characters in the book.
