Blog Tour + Review: ROYAL COMMAND by Stacey Marie Brown

Royal Command, the continuation of Stacey Marie Brown's sexy and suspenseful Royal Watch series, is NOW LIVE!


Everyone thought I was living the fairytale—marrying a prince and living happily ever
That only happens in movies.
I was actually living a nightmare. A gilded cage crushing my soul.
After a terrorist attack almost took my life and my bodyguard, Lennox, trapping us
together, we were forced to face things we tried to deny. Feelings we could no longer
Leave it to me to do the stupidest thing possible—fall for my bodyguard. But there was
no fighting our hunger. Our overwhelming connection.
It made me realize how much my life had been for others: my family, the royals…Theo.
But once you are part of the royal family, you cannot just walk away. Especially when
you find yourself engaged and being groomed to be the future queen.
With a King threatening me, Lord William blackmailing me, my uncle gambling away
what’s left of our fortune, Theo set on our future no matter what, and vicious social
media sniffing around wanting me to fail, I have to play the game. But secrets always seem to find a way of getting out, and it’s not just betrayal from those I love the most
that shatter my life. It’s mine.
And the world wants to break what’s left of me.

*This is the second book in the Royal Watch Series.

Royal Command -

This author is back with the emotional, tantalizing conclusion to the Royal Watch duet.  Royal Command picks up right where the previous book left off and I was immediately pulled into this novel right from the first page. This book has a lot going on in it and the author does a stellar job with character development and having the story flow seamlessly throughout the pages.  Unlike Royal Watch, this book is a touch heavier on the angst and drama and there several sizzling scenes that are sure to melt your kindle.  

This duet brings to mind the age old questions of “just how much are you willing to risk or sacrifice for love?” and “do fairytales truly exist?” .

Secrets, betrayals, family drama, royal intrigue, and manipulations are all coming to a head in this royal romance.  Spencer remains in the unforgiving spotlight and she fears losing herself as she struggles with meeting the expectations of one living with royals. While I was frustrated with some of her unwise and at times reckless decisions, I understood where she was coming from and consider her to be a strong heroine. I feel that the author was excellent at portraying just how conflicted Spencer was, thus making her character seem more real and relatable.  

As for the two men in her life, I really enjoyed how Lennox took on a more prominent roll in the book as well as seeing more of Theo. I was pleased that there was more character development with Lennox, especially as the author revealed more about his past as well as his  underlying feelings towards Spencer.  It is a bittersweet thing when it comes to these types of books as someone will always get hurt.

Royal Command is the conclusion to this author’s Royal Watch duet.  It cannot be read as a standalone and there is no cliffhanger.  As with this author’s previous books, I am impressed with her writing style and ability to weave together a story that captures my full attention.  This book has so much going that I worried things would be too jumbled up, but she pulled it all together nicely.  This book was relatively angsty and while that isn’t always something usually look for in my reading, I found that it worked well for this book.   I read an early complimentary version of this book.
