Review: Command Me - Book #1 Royals Saga - Geneva Lee - May 2014
What does a bookworm do when
it has a week holiday with no internet?
It reads itsebooks and backlist of older titles. I was in the mood for a
Royalty book and had to Command Me
sitting on my Kindle to read for a while now. I had a feeling it was going to
be a bit raunchy but have to admit it took a different spin than I had
originally thought the series would. We first meet best friends Bella and
Carla. They are finally graduating Oxford and have their break-up party. Bella is engaged to Philip who I have to
admit I hated and I was kind of hoping that in this book he would do something
like cheat on Bella or do something awful so she could dump him as she could do
way better than him. Carla Bishop, on the other
hand, is single, and her life has
been looking up since she has struggled quite a bit in the past with eating
disorders and domineering partners. During the party, she ends up in witty banter with one of the party-goers, and it eventuates to a quick snog.
Carla doesn't think anything of the event,
but the next day it is all over the papers as the guy she snogged turned out to be someone famous -
Alexander the Crown Prince and next in line for King. One thing leads to another, and the pair has this on/off relationship where throughout the whole book it is
like one step forward and two steps backward.
The sex scenes in Command Me are quite raunchy as Alexander is into BDSM and
plays the role of a Dom. I have to admit; I
had hoped that Command Me would have the
type of ending where Alexander would stand up to his father but it took a
different route. I am interested though in seeing whether Carla and Alexander
will feature in any of the other books in the series or whether this was just
one of those flings since Carla refuses to become a mistress and have a
relationship in secret.
