Complete Me (Royals Saga Book 7) by Geneva Lee Review

Hi ForeverBookers, I've just finished Complete Me and it was great! I enjoyed how we got to see all three of the already established couples here, instead of the book just focusing on one as the previous trilogies in the series did. 

NOTE: Royals is an ADULT series with sexual themes in! 

SPOILERS if you haven't read the other Royals' books. 

We see from King Alexanders point of view instead of one of the girls' in Complete Me. This was an interesting choice of the author's, I thought. I don't normally like it when a female author writes from a male POV or when a male author writes from a female POV but this was okay. That may have been because of the 3rd person parts as they kind of broke the story up. 

Smith and Belle were my favourite couple from the series so far, I think so I was pleased that their story continued here, along with Clara and Alexander's. In Royals' books 3-6 we see Belle meet Smith and fall in love. We see them want to fight for their relationship above all else, battling their pasts to be together. In the previous books we've seen them want to have a family but they were unsuccessful. This want continues in Complete Me and let's just say that I'm excited for Royals' Book 8 to see what happens. 

Clara and Alexander fight in Complete Me, which they hadn't really done in the previous books. We see them separated for a little bit. This was another part I enjoyed seeing Alexander's perspective from. He clearly loved and wanted Clara in every way. He just struggled with knowing how exactly to show it. Most couples fight at some point in their lives so it was good to see this represented here, in Complete Me. I'm also excited to see just wear their story goes in Royals' Book 8, as well. 

Spoilers for Complete Me...

Lastly we see our "new" couple, Edward and David. I say "new" because they haven't really been a couple in the previous books. Edward has been a side character throughout and we've known he's gay for most of those books but we haven't really seen him with David. Edward and David get married in this book. Out of the three main couples, this is the one that I dislike the most. I understand the author wanting to support gay rights but I just feel that Edward and David weren't represented as much as Clara and Alexander and Belle and Smith. I felt the wedding was very rushed and just skimmed over. We might see more of them in books 8 and 9 as we've had trilogies with the other main couples, although with the other stories going where they're going this seems doubtful. 

There's another plot going on besides all of the romances in Complete Me. This is about Alexander and Smith trying to vanquish what happened to them in the past, especially Smith. While I enjoyed this, what I was most interested in was the romance so this kind of flew over my head, a little. 

Overall then I enjoyed Complete Me. I had a few issues with equalling the story out between all of the couples but I'm still excited to see where Royals' book 8 and onwards goes. I'm therefore giving Complete Me 3/3.5 Stars. 

Have you read this? What did you think? Without spoilers. 

Who's your favourite couple of this series?

Tales Of The Shadowhunter Academy Review...
Tales Of The Shadowhunter Academy chronicles Simon Lewis’ time as a ShadowHunter in training. 
4.5 Stars as a collection (5 on Goodreads)!
I’m using TFTSA as my book by two authors, as it’s by multiple authors. If anyone wants me to name just one story by two authors in the collection, then I choose Born To An Endless Night. I explain why in my review, below...

I loved this short story!

We get introduced to our main characters from the previous TMI books. Simon, our main character is entertaining as he tries to remember who he is or was before he lost his memories in City Of Heavenly Fire. We get a cameo from Isabelle who offers her heart to Simon. He however says that he isn’t interested in a relationship until he can remember who he was.
The new characters we’re introduced to are either students or teachers at Shadowhunter Academy. One student in particular, George, becomes Simon’s…

Starlight Nights (732 Days #2) by Stacey Kade Review

Hey ForeverBookers,
“Starlight Nights”, the first book that I read this year was fantastic! It was like a soap opera with how many storylines it had. There was a love story, a selfish parent story, a drugs story, a friendship story, along with more. The book is long enough to fit all those different stories too as it’s 400 pages.

"Starlight Nights" is the second book in a series of linked contemporary standalone novels. I say linked because there’s a character featured as a side character who’s a main character in the first book 738 Days by Stacey Kade, too. I read this as a standalone, though and it was fine. 

I read “Starlight Nights" for the “A book that’s published in 2018” goal on the Popsugar Reading Challenge. 
Netgalley were kind enough to grant me a review copy of “Starlight Nights” so it’s thanks to them as well as the publisher that I’ve been able to read and review this...
Calista and Eric are the main characters. “Starlight Nights” is told from both of their per…

This Side Of Murder (Verity Kent #1) by Anna Lee Huber Review...

Hi ForeverBookers, 

I've just finished This Side Of Murder by Anna Lee Hubert and it was great! This isn't my normal type of read but I still enjoyed it. 

NetGalley allowed me access to This Side Of Murder so thanks to them for letting me read and review it.

This Side Of Murder tells the story of widower, Verity. She's going to a house party on an island near England. This story is really about Verity trying to figure out a code as she was a secret code breaker in the war. Verity lost her husband in the War, or so she thinks...
4 Stars
The book is set just after World War 1 so there are some customs that are different to now, smoking being seen as a good or relaxing thing, for example. 
Verity meets another attendee of the party, Max on the way there. They strike up a friendship. The other attendees are rather hostile to Verity. The other women treat her terribly and the other men just seem to ignore her. 
This is a mystery novel where we're trying to work out lots of things.…
