Our love has become poison and it's killing us slowly.

I hate how I can't control myself around him. I hate how I always forgive him. I hate that he consumes me. Because Alexander is in my blood. His heart beats in my chest.
He owns me.

But I can't see past his betrayal and his lies. Not this time. I don't know if our love can survive this, because I'm not the girl that fell

In the first book, Cross Me, it became clear Alexander and Cara are still learning how to navigate a new marriage while being constrained by the throne, and all the people working against them. The last thing they needed was keeping secrets from each other. This was something Alexander needed to learn the hard way and Claim Me showed he finally saw that. Unfortunately Clara still needs to learn this lesson.

I'm frustrated that Clara is still keeping a secret no matter what her reasons are. These

I had to take stars away for two reasons.

1. The pace of the story.
It was slow & repetitive up to 27%
2. A lot of editing errors.
There were just a few in the beginning. As the story progressed they became more frequent.
Mostly they are words in the wrong place. Some were incorrect words.

After the 27% mark the story took off like a rocket.

Geneva Lee never disappoints with this series and Wicked Queen proves that point with many exclamation points! For those of us who have followed Alexander and Clara from the very beginning, I feel like Wicked Queen is the game changer. X is so used to Clara falling in line with him, even while fighting him, that he's really not prepared when she puts her royal foot down. As Norris would say, X's form of communication with Clara is physical and in this book, it becomes very clear that these two ...more

Through much of Alexander and Clara’s story, readers have witnessed X’s domineering demeanor, both as a royal and as a man; we’ve watched this dark and dominating alpha male kneel in front of the love of his life, asking her to be his…to bring light to his world…to show her that it’s possible for him to have it all, even if he didn’t deserve it. And while these two have definitely had their trials and tribulations, the one aspect of their lives that has always remained is their undying love for ...more

Geneva Lee just makes the torture worse with each book in Royal Saga. My heart literally can't take it anymore. The sensational, intriguing and sensual story of Alexander and Clara has captured my heart and soul.

I don't know where to begin with this story. Each time I feel I have a grip on what is happening in the story, the author gives it another twist and I never see them coming. I love Alexander's over possessive, dominating and confident personality wrapped in royal finesse and grace. He

Wicked Queen surpassed my expectations! It is a story full of secrets and revelations, despair and hope, tears and laughter, and wicked hotness and chills! This is Geneva Lee’s best work yet! I was riveted from the first page, which started where Wild King left off. I did not want this book to end!

I am so invested in X and Clara. Everything they feel, I swear I feel it pounding in my chest. And that one chapter? I sobbed and sobbed even as I held my breath, if that’s possible. Gah, just thinking

I probably shouldn't even be attempting to write a review right now because my mind is BLOWN!
Wicked Queen was a wild ride through secrets, family, bonding, friendships, intrigue, passion filled moments and royal drama.
I wanted to throttle Alexander and Clara for their inability or unwillingness to communicate anywhere besides between the sheets. Don't get me wrong they are delicious in (and out of) the sheets -- but TALK to the one you love! Trust them with your thoughts and secrets, not just

What an emotional rollercoaster. This book picks up where Wild King left us. So you need to read book one before you read this one.

I was an emotional mess even before chapter 3. I don't know how much more my heart can take when it comes to these characters. I just want to reach through the pages and wrap them in my arms and protect them. And yell ENOUGH!!!!!!!

Secrets are revealed. Will they finally destroy the Royal family? Or will they make them stronger?

Watch out X. I think you finally met

Ok wow talk about a cliffhanger. Geneva once again brought us into the world of the royals. I absolutely love X and Clara. I thought the last books cliffhanger was crazy but this one. I’m on the edge of my seat and have to wait impatiently for the next book. This book starts off where the last ended. It takes several chapters before we find out who was in the bed. I had my suspicions and was definitely one of the two I was thinking. Of course Clara is upset because once again X was keeping ...more

*I received a free copy of Claim Me. This has in no way influenced my review which is honest and unbiased.*

Claim Me started right where Cross Me ended. And while Alexander and Clara did grow quite a bit in this installment, they also both kept things from each other. The suspense and political intrigue was more present - and more urgent in this story, too.
I loved how the relationship between Alexander and Clara evolved - they were able to see past themselves and really talk to each other - and

Clara and Alexander's marriage has reached a breaking point. Secrets and more secrets! Alexander has to work on his communication skills. He is arrogant and continues to think just because he makes the final decisions he does not have to share process with anyone.

Clara is tired of feeling left out. Their marriage was based on trust - physical and emotional. The physical part was never a problem or so she thought. But finding out this last secret she could not stop from punishing X. Separate
4.5 stars for a drama, laughter, friendship goals filled book that is digging the reader deeper into the conspiracy that started in the original series. I am so bloody excited for book three, damn you cliffhangers!

“Don’t,” she murmured, her voice thick with sleep even though her eyes clenched shut a bit too tightly. I yanked my hand back like she’d bitten me. I couldn’t blame her for saying no, but this time, unlike so many others, she meant it fully.”

Where do I even start? Every time I think I know what’s happening in the story, Geneva Lee gives it another twist and I simply don’t see it coming. Claim Me will have you on the edge of your seat. Clara and Alexander are going

Well I did something that I never do, as soon as I finished Wild King I one clicked Wicked Queen and I started it straight away, it takes a lot for me to keep reading the same series, most of the time I have to read a book in between but with the cliffhanger we were left I just had to know the big secret.

Well this book starts off from where we finished off form Wild King and bam we got straight into the story and I did not want to put this down.

I don’t want to say too much as I can’t give
Marina (Living In Our Own Story)
Wow, this was one hell of a wild ride.

The story in this second book in the series picks up exactly where Cross Me left off. And as it says in the blurb this book is hotter, darker and wilder. If you are up for drama, romance, scorching chemistry and danger, then you won't be disappointed. This book has it all.

To be honest, the drama was a little bit too much for my tastes and I was somewhat frustrated with Clara's behaviour at times. She does get angry with X about things that she herself

X and Clara Forever!!!!

For a good portion of the time I was reading this book I thought "Enough already!" The king and queen seemed to careen from tragedy to blow-up to secret with no time to breathe. And that meant not being able to enjoy the wonderfulness that happens when these two are happy together. Even the sexytimes were filled with anger and angst. But about halfway through something shifted and all the many and disparate problems seemed to begin to weave together. We don't have any of

I have to start out by saying that Claim me is the 2nd book in the Royal World series, SO YOU MUST READ Cross Me (Book 1) FIRST! THIS IS NOT A DRILL EITHER! Oh my hell, while this book picked up where the first book left off, it still took a bit before the secret of what Clara found was, and I was calling the brilliant Geneva Lee so many colorful metaphors, but seriously, it was just a drop in the bucket compared to what happened when I got to the end of this book. But I digress. Alexander is ...more

Wicked Queen is the second book in The Sovereign Series by Geneva Lee. I strongly recommend reading book 1, Wild King, before reading Wicked Queen if you haven't already. Although not essential I also suggest reading The Royals Saga, the series where we are introduced to Alexander and Clara, before reading The Sovereign Series.

In Wicked Queen, Geveva Lee takes us on another emotional roller-coaster with the continuation of Alexander and Clara's story. With each book the story gets better, the

Holy mother of cliffhangers! I kept tapping my Kindle, not able to figure out why the page wasn't turning and finally realized it was the end. Noooooo!
The entire book was totally worth it, though. I just hope book 3 is finished quickly!
We've followed Clara and Alexander from the beginning, when they were dating to engaged to a new family who rise to King and Queen much more suddenly than expected. Now with this new series, we get to see them more comfortable in their new roles and yet still

I really enjoyed this second installment of The Royals Collection series by Geneva Lee.

Wicked Queen carries on following Clara & Alexander's turbulent relationship while the everyday workings of the Royal Family run in the background, always just on the brink of throwing their union into chaos.
This author has managed to keep the reader invested and on their toes by fantastically weaving little snippets of intrigue throughout the story, building the suspense to a cataclysmic cliffhanger

I received a free copy of this book from the author.

Y'all. This stuff is gettin' sticky! We have lots going on in the Royal Family. Secrets galore and assassination attempts too! You're going to have to be prepared for anything in this edition of the Royal World.

Clara is mad as fire at Alexander...but only because these two don't communicate! I swear that's the #1 issue with couples - fiction and non-fiction. You have to talk...otherwise you're just screwed. I mean talk to each other not just

Alexander and Clara's story in the Wicked Queen is one that is filled with family, intrigue, steamy sex scenes, secrets and love. Family is an integral part of most love stories but Alexander and Clara are surrounded by family that both loves and despises them. One family member has come back from the "dead" and threatens to keep Alexander and Clara apart because of the secrets keep about this family member. Another family member becomes a possible murder victim as a result of the Royal family ...more

Claim Me by Geneva Lee is the second book in her new Royal World series. This book is told in dual POV between Alexander and Clara, the king and queen of England. Picking up where book one left off, secrets are exposed, relationships are crumbling and the tension is high in the palace.

Well-written and well-paced, this book was hot as hell, sinfully crafted, intriguing and utterly captivating, the Royals of Geneva Lee's world are some of my favorite! The twists and turns in this book will make

Please note if you haven't read Wild King, STOP, you must read that first or you will be lost.
Holy crap, I don't know how I can review this without spoiling anything, also I think my brain might be a little fried, but here goes...

Ok, so once again, there is a cliffhanger just like Wild King, but there is so much more happening. There are so many pieces, multiple stories lines that may or may not run together in the end. This is a little darker and a little more tense then what we've seen before

Holy. Cow. Epic ending, gasping breath. Racing heart. If cliffhangers are your thing then you must check out the Sovereign Series… Geneva has smashed this with an ongoing story of the UK royal family. Forget Wills and Harry, Alexander and Clara are here to take over the world… well Novel world anyway. Hot on the heels of a Wild King, the royal family come with more baggage than the international airport.

As with book one, this family has so much inner drama,

This series is totally heating up! I enjoyed the first book, but all the little things that frustrated me in the first book were cleared up by this one. This was a continuation of the first book and also a series before that. We are neck deep in X and Clara's marriage and trust is a difficult thing between them and it is not an easy ride for them.

It is an interesting take on everything because the two had already gotten their HEA, so now it is like there is just more stress being put them

All the questions answered only to have more pop up throughout the course of the next book in the Royals series! This book starts right where the previous one left off, and it starts with the bombshell of revealing secrets and answering the questions we were dying from in the last book. The continued twists and never ending secrets make this series what it is, and this book continues the tradition. We continue to see Clara and Alexander navigate through royal life while also maintaining their ...more
