Empowering & Beautiful!

Book 3 follows their first year together as they find their rhythm. Not everyone is rooting for their success and some things are beyond their control. This story is beautiful/painful/empowering ~ Loved every moment! Shane and Wesleigh deliver wonderful performances once again!

Hope there’s a book 4

Really enjoyed the whole series. There were some parts that were just a little too much drama in book 3. Also because I really came to care about the characters I’m going to be specific: What about pregnancy sex? There were a couple of references to it but once she became pregnant there were no more hot scenes.
Liked that we saw behind the scenes with Iskandar and growth with Wolfgang but what became of Augusta? Who attacked the capital? What of the evil prime minister and his backwards law?
Hated the timing of the release. Looked and looked for it including in Soon to Come on Audible and as soon as I purchased and finished it on Kindle all of a sudden there it was on Audible, so I listened to it too because I knew the two narrators would act the hell out it and they did. So good together. Loved the cover art too. The ending was on the abrupt side but the good content outweighed the shortcomings so 5 stars. Loved this series!

So much drama!

I’ve had this audible for possibly 3 months and I can’t get past chapter 7. There’s so much drama it’s like one thing after the next. I really just wanted something….anything to be easy with them, but if it’s not her family, his family, the press, the people, all of it. Look, my stress level doesn’t need to be this high to read a book. Yet, I have to finish it to get my moneys worth…maybe one day.

WHAT AN AMAZING STORY!

Ugh the story, the characters, I got all the feels!! I loved everything about this book you were pulled in so many directions and so many emotions! JJ is an amazing storyteller and really knows how to pull you in, this series as a whole was just so captivating I never wanted it to end. I was hoping for a bit more conflict with the sister Augusta but other than that it was very well done. I’ve gotten my Grandma and Sister hooked on the series. I really hope one day JJ Mcavoy decides to revisit this world and write some more I would love to see into other character’s lives maybe even a Princess Diary type of book for their child! Ugh Definitely going to reread this series over and over again, the narrator’s really brought this book to life, I loved the series so much I bought the physical copies to have and I am so glad I did! I’m recommending that everyone read this series and I hope to one day see it made into a show or movie and definitely have these wonderful Narrators apart it as well!

A beautiful story!

This trio of books was incredible! All of the character development was fantastic- I found myself not wanting to stop the story; listening for hours at a time. I highly recommend these books! :)

Surprisingly delightful!

I don't tend to write reviews, but found myself enthralled by what I expected to be a "paint-by-the-numbers" formulaic romance. Though fantastical, it's characters were relatable and the story was by turns delightful, funny, aggravating, emotionally moving, suspenseful, and steamy. The performance, while not perfect, was still quite good.

Hoping for another book

I have enjoyed this series. I hope there is another book coming as that evil Prime minister has to go. I need to see his ending, more babies and a nation embrace a black queen.

Book 1 Still My Fav

This book felt unnecessarily long with several anticlimactic drama scenarios. One thing is for certain though, if even half of this is true about the Royals, I would NEVER want any parts of their lifestyle. Shane and Wesleigh did a great job bringing Gale and Odette's love to life but the sum total of the book ... well this entire series actually, was just too long for no good reason. It could have been summed up in one book.
