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.
