I have been reading a series off and on for a couple of months. It’s one I didn’t want to read straight through because I was enjoying it so much that I didn’t want it to end. Alas, all good things must come to an end but a wonderful end they came to. I, of course, am speaking of Serena Akeroyd’s Kingdom of Veronia series. Let’s get into it.
We have our main character, Perry, an American scientist that has accepted a position in the Veronian government to discover the cause of their water crisis. Her bestie, George, is a prince of Veronia and is accompanying her back to his home. Sure, he knows she is the best woman for the job but he also has other plans for her in mind. Perry has been the object of his eye for quite sometime but he hasn’t wanted to make a move and risk ruining something that could be amazing. See, George has a bit of a secret kink. He is most turned on when he is able to share a woman with his brother, Edward. Edward is next in line to be King and recently widowed. George and he haven’t shared a woman since their youth, will he be down to get back into the sexual preference of their past?
Men in Veronia aren’t like American men and Perry can’t find it in her to complain. She has had a bit of a crush on George for years but has felt they were stuck in the friend zone. She is ready to prove herself as a scientist during her time in Veronia, that is until things start heating up. The first night Perry feels abandoned when George is forced to smooze diplomats and she meets a wonderfully attractive man. It is clear that Xavier is not a fan of these fancy shindigs and discovers Perry crouching down playing a game on her phone. He is tickled by her complete lack of respect for the environment she has found herself in and finds a companion in her whilst they escape the dreary party for a walk in the garden.
Will Perry’s blooming relationship with Xavier, George and Edward’s cousin, ruin George’s plans to make Perry the object of he and his brother’s eyes? Will Edward be accepting of jumping back into the unusual relationships he and his brother held with women in their younger days? Will Veronia be accepting of this clumsy American girl and her relationships with the princes and duke?
I loved this series so much. I found Perry so easy to relate to and I could not stop swooning over her men. The story held so much heat and action when I was reading I could not put the books down. The story was so gripping I enjoyed it just as much as I did the swoon which is unusual for me. As I’ve said before, I’m more of a lots of swoon/steamy and a bit of story kinda girl. I cannot wait to hear more from Perry and the guys in the upcoming CROSSOVER in Serena Akeroyd’s other series Quintessence. It’s going to be so fucking amazing to see Sascha and her men interact with these royals once Sean comes out.
