Warned as a girl to keep her kisses to herself, Greer Galloway disobeys twice--once on her sixteenth birthday as she's kneeling in a pool of broken glass, and another time after a charming stranger named Embry Moore whisks her into the dazzling Chicago night.

Strap on your vibrators, girls. Strap them on RIGHT NOW because you need to be prepared. Sierra Simone has written one of the hottest Hot Romance Novels since, like, ever.

I'm going to try my best to not reveal anything about this book that is spoiler-ish, so I beg your forgiveness for what could be a fairly vague review.

The granddaughter of an American vice president, Greer Galloway knows her way around politics. One of the things her grandfather values about her is her canny ability to read peo

This was supposed to be my fairy tale, with me as the princess and Ash as the prince, but there’s a third person here, a person we both want and who wants both of us.

This book. OMG this book!!!! I’m not always a fan of the ‘erotica’ genre, I need the feels when I read and I have to be in the mood for the excessive sexy time. So I put this series on the back burner. I had a persistent friend/blog parter that has been raving about it and assured me it had feels and I would l

Just a minute...

Excuse me while I collect myself... or rather my panties from the floor...

This book was FIRE!

I'm still trying to recover from it and I finished it almost five minutes ago!

This author has not disappointed at all!

I read my first story by her: Priest which, if I may say so myself was a GENIUS book.

And now she's knocked it out of the park again with this one!

American Queen didn't get a five-star from me, it was a four star, but don't fret! It was for two reasons and I'll tell you

Wow....Just Wow. I have 5 words for this book: Enchanting. Spellbinding. Seductive. Wicked. Forbidden

This is a tightly spun love-story but much more than this we get an intelligent story, told with a crisp and smart narrative. This book pulsated with passion and, sweet lawd, the ever-present scent of the forbidden.

Honestly, I don't know how to categorize American Queen Is it: Erotica?! Political thriller?! Second chance love? Or a love triangle love circle? I found it was none of these, yet all

This was total trash and I gobbled it right up.

Not sure I will continue though. I loathe flashbacks and this series is written entirely in the past/present back and forth format that I don’t love. Entertaining. But not my favorite delivery system.

I also don't feel like being strung along for two more books at $4.95 a pop.
So...It’s not you, book, it’s me.

Before I dive into a rambling review that will no doubt turn into a mushy confession of my love for all things romantic, I have to divulge that my lovefest actually began with a graduate class on Arthurian legend.

Are you ready for this? Was I ready for this? The answer is NO! I was not! And yet, here I am, yearning to read it ALL. OVER. AGAIN. Once again, Sierra Simone works her magic of the sensual and forbidden and turns me into a slave of her words. Nothing....and I mean NOTHING will prepare you for this passionate, intense and mind-fucking ride!

I'm not going to dive into the nitty-gritty of AMERICAN QUEEN, because this is just something you have to experience all on your own, and I urge,

This is no fairy tale. Or if it is, it's the most fucked-up fairy tale I’ve ever heard of.

I'm still confused as to which emotion should I run with here. This story has vibrant colours of a rainbow of emotions it invoked in me. Angst, love, submission, lust, heartbreak, seperation, sexiness.

As we are nearing the final book in this series release day, I figured now would be a great time to start this series. WOW!!!! What a journey that we go on in this story.

From growing up, Greer has lived with her Grandfather, attended social functions with him from a young age learning the ropes of listening, becoming a spy of sorts for her grandfather and how to smile and say thank-you.

It is at one of these events, she meets a man who at her young age, she

I think my Kindle just overheated after reading the last few chapters of American Queen. I might even take up smoking again just to enjoy that after sex cigarette vibe ;) The ending had me craving a smoke until the last three lines. That's all I'm going to say. I want you to go into this one blind and ready for a binge read.

In American Queen, Sierra Simone spun a one-of-a-kind forbidden second chance romance. This wicked political drama is fueled by lust, love and sexy as sin secrets. American

sometimes smut should just be smut. i don't need back stories or weird flashbacks or made up history that low key demonizes Slavic people.

could we just get a 100 page poly smut situation with a president/vice president/grown woman scenario? i dunno if i'm just getting too sensitive in my old age, but a few things really rubbed me the wrong way early on regarding the story here that i just don't wanna finish despite my curiosity.

➦First of all, there will be people who won't pick this book up just because it explores a relationship between three people. And that's fine - to each their own. Personally, I love reading about all kinds of different relationships - it could be a book about a person in a relationship with a chair and I'd probably still read it.

➦Those people who pick this book up because it's classified as erotica might be surprised to find that it's not hardcore

Sit here, so I can whisper in your ear. Want a cup of coffee? No? All right. Let me get to the point.
This book had me on pins and needles. It know that feeling you get when you're reading and you're kind do I put this? Soaring? Like you're reading the words and you feel like you're in front of an orchestra that's being conducted masterfully? And your heart "literally"....a centimeter higher in your chest?

Ang~Dirty Laundry Review
Sierra Simone rocked my world again. American Queen is filled with want and need, lust and love, jealousy and generosity. This story is erotic and carnal beyond compare. What else can I say about this masterpiece? Oh yes, I called it a masterpiece. For me, Sierra is the crème de la crème in the this erotica literary world in which we sometimes live. Her books are filled with thought provoking story lines with complex characters and the absolute hottest sex in town.

In American Queen we get to see

Our story begins with a warning. A warning that it was given to a seven years old girl by a wizard.

“Keep your kisses to yourself when the time comes”.

Greer is the granddaughter of a former Vice President. She comes from a very important family in politics.
She is naturally observant, naturally curious, and naturally ready to read deeply into small comments or gestures, so Grandpa Leo was using her as his little spy when she was a kid.
Greer used to mingle in the adult world in balls,

I started this book open minded and really tried to enjoy it, but...
It has a weak heroine, a hero who seems powerful on the outside - but broken on the inside (which would have worked, if he wasn't the fucking President of the United States), Insta-Love, BDSM, MM, MFM, cheating and even incest... 😬
It was all just too much for my gentle heart. 😂💙

Well, what can I say? This book is Fifty Shades of Grey, Mr. President, and A Table for Three rolled into one. I have to say this was so out of my comfort zone but I was able to successfully finish it because the story was a lot more interesting than I could have ever expected.

I knew what I was signing for when I started American Queen. Knew that it has some kind of strange and complicated love story about three characters and it has a menage and BDSM content. I have read quite a number o

Sierra Simone outdid herself with this incredible story!!
Not in a million years I thought this plot would take the path it did.
Intense and powerful, American Queen, takes love to another level with a story full of lust, friendship and second chances love.

Imagine what would be like to be with one of the most powerful man in the world. Now imagine what would be like to love him since you're sixteen... Can you really imagine the thrill in the moment you finally have him for yourself? And what about

Are there any Eurythmics fans out there? This book kept reminding me of one of their songs, The King and Queen of America, of all things; just look at the title.

Back to the book. Greer Galloway's grandfather was a former Vice-President of a beloved and fondly remembered President of the US. I had a strong impression the latter was written after Ronald Reagan: a B-rated movie actor who destroyed everything that was good in his country, but is still a role model for most of its people. So Greer's

There is nothing better to take your mind off of real politics than a super sexy, fictional political romance. Plus, this book was so much hotter than I thought it would be, but I should have known because Sierra Simone always brings the heat.

This story is nothing like I expected, but I was definitely along for the crazy, unexpected ride this story took. Greer was raised by her grandfather and was born in politics, so it wasn't surprising for her to find herself meeting the future President.

Audiobook – 5++++ stars for Stephanie Rose! she rocks.

Story – 3.75 stars

“We kissed for a very long time, until I made sure that I had tasted every trace of your cunt on his mouth, and then I marked his neck. Did you see? I wanted you to see. I can’t decide if that was cruel of me or kind.”

I struggled with this review. Cause man I loved this book hard! Ever since I read Simone's historical Markham Hall series I've been a huge fan. Her writing captivates me and holds me hostage. I love anything dealing with politics, but marry politics and romance with a dash of taboo then I'm all for it. And with the election right around the corner this book couldn't have come at a better time. Sierra Simone wrote a stunningly complex, bewitching, erotic,

I'm not reading this one because menage is not my thing but also

* OW activity (view spoiler)
* When you can't tell if a menage is M/M/F or F/F/M then the whole triangle/disloyal heroine/diloyal hero/OW/OM has gone too far. Triangles are bad already withouth adding too much to the mix.

What a waste of an interesting concept.

You think it is either/or that you belong to yourself or you belong to me, but I’m telling you right now that it’s both/and. You belong to yourself and you belong to me, and I don’t fucking care that it seems to be a contradiction because we both know it isn’t.
