Wow, what a wild ride Royal Command turned out to be. With not quite being satisfied on the romance front in Royal Watch, I just couldn’t wait to get my hands on this one. And I’m happy to say that I read this in one sitting, I was completely engaged the whole time.
First of all, I’m not even going to try and understand the expectations of being a royal, but since we get to know Spencer very well through this duet. I loved her character so much, but I also didn’t want her to lose herself.
Spencer, Theo and Lennox … their story is a complicated one, nothing about their story is easy. Everyone has their part and specific obligations, but in the end love will always win out.
While I don’t really agree with how Spencer went about things, she looked out for her happiness. And you can’t fault her for that even though so many would strong disagree. She wanted her happiness and freedom, and no one was going to keep her from getting that.
Theo, he’s a tough character. I loved their friendship more than anything, but you quickly see it changing as time goes on and there’s more pressure on him as he’s prepped to be King. I can’t even imagine what is going through his mind. But throughout the duet, he definitely lost a bit of himself and it just made me so sad to see. I hope we get to see more Theo.
Lennox, gahhhh this man is just everything! He definitely has the qualities I look for when I read a bodyguard romance. Simply irresistable. The major thing that got to me was hearing about his more recent hook-ups throughout the book, it brought more drama to the story for sure.
Stacey wrapped this duet perfectly, giving us the HEA so many of us were craving from the beginning, but also room for more stories. I hope this isn’t the last we see of the royals.
