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 t

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️! American King, book 3 of 3. A candid glimpse into the life & legacy of a King, President Maxen Ashley Colchester & his unapologetic & intuitive love for his Prince & Queen!

“Perhaps Embry’s always had the part of me that wielded the sword, but she… she’s always owned the part that wears the crown.”

Books in trilogy should be read in order:
Book 1: American Queen
Book 2: American Prince
Book 3: American King

I wouldn’t be complete without her, and neither would Embry. She was made to be my wife, and we were made to be a three.

I can’t remember the last time I stayed up all night reading a book. It’s been a while. I was a hot mess while reading this book. I cried, I raged, I cried some more, I texted my friend through the late hours of the night (thanks Bella) and I LOVED THIS BOOK SO MUCH! Seriously, what an epic conclusion to this trilogy!

➦This is going to be short. Sierra Simone delivers such a lovely conclusion to the trilogy! Told from three different POVs, the story spans several years into the future and shows us the progression of relationship between the main characters.

➦It was interesting to see how Mr. President and his First Lady adapt to the new role of their lover. There are secrets revealed and problems dealt with. And in the midst of it all are steamy scenes which will leave you fanning yourself.

“Being a secret child of a world leader? Winning a war? Having a child with your sister? The love between you, Embry and Greer? All of that seems common and unremarkable to you?”

The book tells us the fairytale of the extraordinary life of three extraordinary people:
• A powerful but humble King
• A graceful but naughty Queen
• A faithful but backstabber Knight

Thankfully, the King is also understanding and he is ready to forgive. And he is also so honorable that he is ready to step down

Sierra Simone delivers an eloquently written conclusion to this series. This is a tale that connects to the story of Camelot in which my fictional Professor West of Nina Lane’s series could have predicted a ton of events occurring. I however had to look up on Google for hints and even then this author throws her own twists and turns!

We have two powerful men, the president of the United States and the Vice President and the first lady. All three love one another deeply, this

I didn't sign up for an MM love story but this is what I got with this last installment.

Greer was a ghost in this book.

I loved the first 2 books BECAUSE of the throuple; I didn't want, nor did I expect to read something focused on

Greer and Ash, or

I wanted to read about

"Once upon a time, there were two warriors who loved the same woman as much as they loved each other. And everything that happened afterwards led inevitably to tragedy.”

The ancient Arthurian tale may have faded on the ancient pages, but it gains immortality again on Sierra's Watch. Her romantic heart imbues fresh and must I mention kinky life into the legend.

PERFECTION, EMOTIONAL, COMPLEX, WONDERFUL, AMAZING.......American King was a spectacular ending to the New Camelot Trilogy. From the very first page to the very last page, I was completely enamored with how the author wrote a poetic, lyrical love story of three souls that were entwined with one another in all parts of their lives. Their minds, their bodies and their souls were connected on a deeply profound and passionate level. A three way love that was completely

Ever reread a book and then wonder, what the heck was I thinking? well this is that kind of book.

So I have been waiting with bated breath for this book, I literally had to check the publication date to make sure I did not miss it because I wanted to read it immediately it came out. Well, to borrow one of my friend's phrase, this book was a a complete"wackadoodle".

5 stars!

Put a fork in me. I’m done. American King officially slayed me! It is the heart-pounding, breathtaking conclusion to the New Camelot Trilogy. It delivered the fatal blow after pummeling my emotions, but American King just might be my favorite book of the three. As a side note, the trilogy is extremely intricate, with multiple players and cliffhangers galore. For maximum enjoyment, I suggest readers clear their schedules and devote a good chunk of time to reading the three books back to b

After reading American Prince I was looking for more of that raw sexual heat that these characters have between them. We definitely got some amazing scenes with them but I would have loved to see them together more than we did. It felt like the majority of the book was focused on the drama unfolding and it was almost pushing the characters out of focus.

My rating was actually very close to being a 3 Star because I wanted more of Ash, Embry, and Greer and less of t

When I first got this book I cried because this book is the end of this series. This was a beautifully written book that had me unable to sleep or eat I think I got maybe 6 hours sleep in 2 days. This is book 3 in the "New Camelot Trilogy" and what a book it is. This book picks up where book 2 "American Prince" left off with Embry The Vice President of U.S. telling his lover Maxen "Ash" Colchester who is The President of the United

Overall 4 Stars for the series. Probably 3.5 for this one.

I feel like this series deteriorated as the books went on. It started out really good. The political background, the three main characters, the development of their relationship. I was intrigued, I was invested.

By the end of the second book, it was less about their relationship and more about other things. The drama ramped up, I didn't feel as much for their relationship as three, after all there never really was one. It was more their

“It belongs there. It always belonged there, Ash. It should have been your ring from the beginning.”

And that quote about sums up my feelings for this entire series. I've felt it right from the beginning and reading Ash's book only confirmed it. Hands down he loved both of them but he was only ever in love with one person.

But then maybe that's just how it came across to me...maybe that's what I was searching for. I KNOW I was searching for answers and we do get a lot of them in this bo

6 stars for the series. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ One of my top ten reads of all time.

I'm on hour one of my book hangover and so far, so good. I've finally stopped crying, so there's that.

For two solid weeks, this series owned me. I wasn't just reading it, I felt like I was breathing it. I connected with these characters hard, which surprises me because on the surface, they are not relatable, but beneath, at their core, I totally and completely understood them—maybe not at first, but eventually—every bad decisio

Two soldier boys in love. The princess they both wanted. How close we were to our happily ever after, how near it seemed.

As a girl who is clueless to the Camelot story/ myth and only some names sound familiar and nothing more, I felt like I went blind into these series. I couldn't notice the similarities with the original story and that maybe gave me no insight what was going to follow or what probably had happened. I do feel like knowing more about the original Lancelot/ Arthur etc
"...being able to make someone happy with the mere act of loving them how they wished to be loved felt like a gift"

Have you ever wished a Hero from a book could be real before?

To say I adored Ash would be a huge understatement. From the first book right until the very end he stayed true to himself. The brave soldier, the fierce lover, the loyal King...he was everything and seeing how much he loved Greer and Embry at times almost overwhelmed me and I had to stop reading and just take a breath.

I need to reread the first two books because it has been such a long time, but I finally finished this book and totally forgot how epic this trilogy was. I still would have preferred it to be a MM instead of MMF, but either way it was such a great story and trilogy

Brilliant. Heart wrenching. Beautiful. Utterly unbelievable. Sierra Simone has a delivered a romance that will make readers feel it all, every single hurtful act and phrase, every moment of passion, and every moment of unconditional love. Readers will cry, will yell, will gape at their books in disbelief. Her retelling of Camelot and the Arthurian legend is not only intense and emotional, but combines one of my favorite classical pie

It was the perfect conclusion to this extraordinary trilogy. The quality of writing in this book was so beautiful I highlighted something on almost every page.
