Sinful Empire by Meghan March
My rating: 4 of 5 stars.
Nice ending to the Trilogy!
I tend to think that the ending to a Trilogy is not always the best out of the three books. I always love the meeting between the two main characters in a romance and especially when it is a series or a Trilogy because they are almost never just friendly at the beginning.
There is always some sort of complex relationship that has to develop in the first book which is what generally makes the first book so good, especially if it is something you want to read further. The interactions between Mount and Keira kept me interested all through Ruthless King.
Then the second book generally has a lot more romance and action which is what I really enjoyed in Defiant Queen. There were multiple storylines and the romance was still developing and steamy. It kept me on my toes and I wanted more. The cliffhanger was awesome as well.
I genuinely liked this book. Though I do think that sometimes the cliffhanger’s get resolved too quickly and then the books get sappy a bit too soon trying to wrap up the Happily Ever After. I don’t think that happened in this one. Lachlan Mount isn’t your average man. He isn’t the King of New Orleans by accident. He does what needs to be done. He is much tougher than I expected. I like it!
Though I still like the first two books more and in the end it does get a bit lovey lovey dovey as well as hot and steamy for the HEA wrap-up. As romance readers we expect all that and many readers would be haters without it. Probably me included. Overall this was an amazing series but since I like this book a bit less than the other two, I will give this one four stars since I gave the others five stars. Though overall I give the Trilogy 5 stars, because I loved the story, the romance, the suspense and the thrill of it all.
