Review: Crown Me (Royals Saga #3) by Geneva Lee


Print Length: 248 pages
Publisher: Westminster Press (February 10, 2015)

From Goodreads.com: 
As the world tried to tear us apart, Alexander fought for me, claiming me as his own. I belong to him—body, heart, and soul. I found strength in his dominance. In his control. In his love.

Still I could always feel it: the darkness creeping toward our joy, threatening to overcome us. But I never imagined it would end like this. I thought I knew what marrying Alexander meant to my life. To my independence. To us.

I was wrong.

Ripped apart by tragedy, fighting for love, Clara and Alexander face their darkest hour in the stunning conclusion to their saga…
 

For readers 18 and up due to mature, erotic scenarios.

My Rating: 3 stars out of 5

Finally! I am done with this series, which to be honest hasn't been a favorite one mine as it is one that I probably won't ever read again. I gave Command Me one star, and Conquer Me two stars due to their over abundance of repetitive sex and their overall lack of anything of substance. I did mention with book two that I was starting to see more from the writer, a sub-plot that had the potential to be interesting, and a focus on the main couple that wasn't focused on them copulating like rabbits. I had hope for the third book - albeit a small hope - that it would be everything the first two weren't.

And it was. Sort of. 

As with the previous two books in this series, this book also contained an over abundant amount of sex. And while I once again found myself skipping over the majority of the sex scenes, there didn't seem to be quite as many as there were in the prior books. I did become annoyed with Alexander a few times in this one, the first when he showed up on Clara's "girls only" night proving that even when she asked for time alone he couldn't grant it to her, and the other time was when his behavior went back to how it had been previously - as though the other two books and all of their progress as a couple had been for nothing.  


When they aren't having sex, the book moves at a fairly quick pace. There were a lot of details added to this novel that the first two were severely lacking. The characters each had a full story arc, there was action, there was worry - there was even a moment where I thought for sure something different was going to happen (unfortunately due to spoilers I can't say what that was, but I will say it involved Clara and a hospital). I do feel like there were some questions that were still left unanswered at the end of this, however for the most part I felt satisfied by the majority of events and their outcomes. 

In the end, I enjoyed this book more than the other two, however I'm not sure it was enough to warrant me to continue on with this series (as I read that even though their story has come to an end there will be a fourth book in the overall series).
