Publisher's Summary

It starts with a stolen kiss under an English sky, and it ends with a walk down the aisle. It starts with the President sending his best friend to woo me on his behalf, and it ends with my heart split in two.

It starts with buried secrets and dangerous desires...and ends with the three of us bound together with a hateful love sharper than any barbed wire.

My name is Greer Galloway, and I serve at the pleasure of the President of the United States. This is the story of an American Queen.

Yes, Mr. President indeed!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, definitely! Stephanie Rose does an incredible job narrating all of the characters so perfectly and distinctly! This book was crazy hot, but also keeps the listener engaged and curious to find out what's going to happen next.

What did you like best about this story?

I loved unraveling the mystery between the past and the present and how all the characters were intertwined and connected. There is some seriously sexy times in this book that pushed my comfort zone in the best way!

What about Stephanie Rose’s performance did you like?

Stephanie Rose was phenomenal! I loved how she voiced each character so perfectly to their personality and distinctly so that there was no confusion about who was speaking. Her male voices were amazing! Ash was rough and gravelly, while Embry was lighter and more playful. Just wow!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

YES! I was dying to know what would happen next and the scenes with Greer, Ash, and Embry had me feeling especially thankful for headphones because they were smoking hot! An incredible book and start to the trilogy!

Any additional comments?

Since this is book 1 in the series, please keep in mind that the book does end with a cliffhanger (and what a doozy it is!) I can't wait for more!!

Just OK

I wasn't really impressed with this book. The charters really got on my last nerve. I really just had the feeling that the two men should of just been together. It was a different plot with the POTSUS, First Lady and the VP. I feel like it was too much back and fourth with the past and present, and not enough chemistry with the Female lead.

✫✫ 3.5 Stars ✫✫

Unfortunately I think I let all the hype get me too excited for this book. My expectations were extremely high since everyone I know was raving about it. I’m not saying it wasn’t good but I sadly was expecting spectacular and for me this was not.
I enjoyed the storyline and I keep telling myself the authors might still fill in the million holes in this story over the next two books. I had a few small issues with this book and the way the relationships played out but that is because I really dislike insta-love and this book was that X2! I wish their was more build up of the love story and even the sex. Besides that, I was very intrigued by the political & religious aspects of this book but sadly they fizzled out to more of a side note. The wedding night was hot but really the only real MM sex we get is “them together in the shower” and yes I am talking about when she says they were together and that’s just mean to not give the details! I saw the ending coming a mile away but I’m hoping it’s going to make book 2 heavier on the storyline. I am not losing hope, I am moving on to book 2 and now maybe with different expectation book 2 will blow me away!

The narration was great. She does a great job with the men and the difference between their voices!

Not for Me – Please Read Below


Sierra Simone really got my attention with her book; Priest. Since then (a couple of years perhaps) my listening/reading has moved in a different direction.

American Queen was way over the top in every aspect. The MOST wealthy people, the MOST powerful people, the MOST broken people, the MOST taboo, the MOST… I found it hard to relate to – even as an escape because it was MOST unbelievable...

Stephanie Rose is an above average voice performer. There is a bit of nasal in her voice, but that is what makes her distinct.

Worth a credit/$: I will not be adding any of the other American Queen series to my library, not even on sale. You will have to go with your gut on this one. If I had listened to it immediately after PRIEST I may have liked it. However, I didn't and I didn't.

Thanks for reading my review. Please market "helpful" if that applies, directly below this paragraph.

Loved It

This was a really good book so good that I stayed up all night reading it. The kinky President. Greer Galloway is the granddaughter of a former Vice President and she met Maxen "Ash" Colchester when she was 16 years old he was a Captain in the Army and ten years older than her and although he kissed her nothing else happened. Four years after that they meet again only she finds out he has a fiancée and she is heartbroken so as she is leaving a party she runs into his best friend Embry Moore who is also heartbroken and she spends the night with him and losing her virginity to him and when he doesn't call she is once again heartbroken. Fast forward five years Embry who is now Vice President turns up in her office telling her that the President wants to see her. Ash has wanted her for ten years his wife Jenny died of cancer a year ago and he sees as his chance to have Greer. This book was really hot the President is Kinky he is a dark and dirty Dom he has also been hurt in the past he was adopted as a baby and at his dead wives funeral he finds out who is father is turns out his father was President when Greer's grandfather was vice President. Ash also has a couple of deep dark secret's and on of them being that he has been in love with his best friend and Vice President for years and he even asked him to marry him twice and was turned down. Embry feels like a third wheel he is in love with both of them as well. This book was told from Greer POV she was raised around politics so she knows how to play the game. I did not like her cousin Abilene she was a jealous B*tch and I believe that she had something to do with the cliffhanger in this book. Ash warned Greer about Abilene 10 years ago and when she tried to kiss him and she didn't listen I would have cut her off after that. Greer feels insecure when around her she thinks that she is not as pretty as she is and she has two powerful men in love with her. This was a really good book and I was really glad that the author gave us backstory on these three and it was really hot the sex scenes were really good. This book was well written with no errors in grammar or spelling. I am really looking forward to reading books 2 and 3.

Not my thing

Ok first the good: Sierra Simone is a talented writer. Her creativity and originality are to be applauded. I'm not bored reading it. But...
Maybe I was spoiled by Priest. I went into this expecting angst and love and passion. Instead of that I get a woman who enjoys being degraded and hurt. I guess I didn't really understand this was going to be a story that involved being hit by belts and such. Furthermore, I think at heart this is a story of two male best friends deeply in love that have found a female plaything as an accessory. As much as I'm told about how they love her, their actions speak otherwise and I'm left feeling like I don't like any of them very much. There was no one I was rooting for, and I spent the majority of the time thinking, why don't any of them love the other enough to be fully committed or value themselves enough to demand commitment. Just not my thing.

Hottest Listen In a Long time…

What a great book, I loved how she developed the story. The books I enjoy the most has a perfect balance of hotness and story and this book had a perfect balance. The complicated relationships was the best part. I am a book hopper and I listened to this book in 2 sittings. Love this book!!!!!

Utter Garbage

The dialogue and story are soo stupid and like nails on a chalkboard to sit through. After nearly a third of the book I stopped listening to it because I can't imagine the writing will suddenly get better and worth my time.

Too much illicit sex for me

I was very disappointed in this book. I did not like the story about a president of the United States doing the things this one did. The main problem is that I was turned off by the extremely detailed sexual interactions. I am certainly NOT a prude, but this went way overboard for my tastes. I stopped the book in the 10th chapter because I was just tired of listening to all the very descriptive sexual activity. This type book may be fine for some, but it is not what I want to hear when getting ready for work in the mornings or when trying to go to sleep at night.

HOT HOT HOT!!!!

Any additional comments?

Be warned, the steam factor in this one is OFF THE CHART!!

I kept hearing about this one in a Facebook group that I am in, so I had to see what all the fuss was about.

Greer Galloway is the granddaughter of a previous American Vice President so she knows a thing or two about politics, her grandfather uses this to his benefit as she is small and cute, and is able to flit around the room unnoticed during parties, while simultaneously gaining information about people for him, by listening to their private conversations…..sneaky!

Fast forward a few years, Greer is quite an expert in reading peoples faces from the groundwork she has done for her grandfather.
At one of these parties she meets a man called Ash, he is handsome and kind to her, considering she is always in the shadow of her gorgeous best friend.

Greer and Ash share a kiss, nothing else, just a kiss, she is only 15 after all, she doesn’t see him again, until later on.

6 years later she is at yet another party, and meets a hot young dude called Embry, now Greer is upset that Ash is also at the party but hasn’t either recognised her, or is ignoring her, so what is a girl to do right?
Embry deflowers Greer and she realises that she kinda likes him, but Embry is a bit of a playboy douche and that all goes out of the window…….or does it?

Did I forget to mention that Ash is now the President of the good ol US of A, and certainly hasn’t forgotten about Greer. Sorry about that……..

Oh and before I forget…….Embry is his Vice President!!!!! 😱

Both men want her, she wants both men, I mean what is a young hot girl to do 😇

If erotica reads are not your bag then do not even attempt to read this, your kindle WILL set on fire or explode with hotness🔥🔥

If you like audio, well ladies (and gents) you are in for a smexy treat, Sephanie Rose gives a great narration, and heats up those hot parts to nuclear level!!

Be warned, you will need to have book 2 lined up for immediate start, this ends on a MAHOOSIVE cliffhanger, but it is ooohhh so good.

Drop what you are doing and get started in this series, you won’t be disappointed!!

So sublime

That opening chapter , OMG !!
I was stunned at the beauty of the the words, and all the description. The story flowed so well,
l was swept away time and again.
All the characters are so well written, each a pivotal part to this complex story.
I loved it.
