As Conquer Me begins, Clara is dealing with the aftermath of losing the love of her life, existing as best she can. By exerting her self worth, Clara crushed her heart, but she knows there are limits to what she is willing to endure for love, and without actions on Alexander’s part, his promises mean nothing to her. But what she doesn’t know as she tries to traverse her lonely existence and not go back to old habits is that Alexander misses and craves her just as much as she does him and when that information comes to light, Clara will have to decide if she can willingly give her body and soul to Alexander again and face the letdown that may occur again due to Alexander’s obligation to his country, his duties to his family, and the many people who refuse to acknowledge her position next to him.
The idea of being conquered is a multi-layered concept for both Clara and Alexander, and its applicability reaches further than just their relationship. Clara must overcome her self doubt, her inability to control every situation, her need to know all of Alexander’s secrets, and her anxiety of what being a part of Alexander’s “real” world means for her and her life. Alexander must surmount the obstacles in his path due to his royal obligations and his father’s manipulation as well as prevail against Clara’s frees and insecurities. It’s a tangled web that Alexander must commandeer around but at the end of it if it means having the one woman who helps to conquer his demons and satisfy his body as well as his soul then it’s worth all of the torment and disruptions that overwhelm him.
Conquer Me is a great follow up to Command Me and delves deeper into the sensual relationship that exists between Alexander and Clara. The chemistry between them is still at the forefront of the text and the way Alexander commands Clara’s body proves exactly how sexually compatible they are. Getting snippets of Alexander’s point of view also adds to the dynamics of the text, offering necessary insight into his true feelings and what he’s willing to do to claim the woman who owns him even more than she truly understands. There is a lot of outside pressure closing in on Clara and Alexander that threatens to put another divide between them, forcing Alexander to seduce Clara’s body to get what he wants, and while that is how he’s used to getting his way, there’s more to their relationship now, and I would have liked it examined a bit more by them opening up to each other, giving in to more than just their sexual impulses. I’m sure, though, that that will come with time and truths revealed, which I will be anxiously waiting for in Crown Me.

4 poison apples
Though I will admit, the sex is absolutely spectacular. Incredibly hot scenes there and well-written without being too cliché. There are a few authors that I like their plot lines but their sex scenes are so full of cliches they drive me nuts. Not true with Geneva Lee’s books. The woman knows how to write a hot, steamy sex scene without using all those over done cliches.
The King is making no qualms about letting his opinion of their relationship be known. As far as he's concerned, Clara's just a tart that Alexander is screwing. The Royal Brat Pack (as Clara calls them) are being as mean as ever. And to top it off, all is not well in Clara's parents' marriage.
All of this, plus Clara's job and the threat of her ex-boyfriend is looming large between them, but through all of it, Alexander and Clara seem to grow stronger together instead of being torn apart. Alexander's never thought of himself as being capable of loving anyone, but after a traumatic event, he learns that he just can't fight it anymore and finally admits to himself and to Clara that he loves her.
I was a little conflicted on how I felt about Clara and Alexander in this book. It was their separation that bothered me. I couldn't for the life of me understand why Alexander couldn't be with Clara. She wasn't a "nobody", she was British, and he clearly loved her, even if he couldn't say it. Did I understand that there were certain expectations of him as a royal and the heir, yes. But that didn't mean he had to give up the one person that gave him peace. Their back and forth was rough on both of them, and me, but it got to the point where I wanted them to decide once and for all what they were going to do.
I was disgusted with the royals, excluding Alexander and Edward (his brother), in Command Me, and that definitely didn't change in Conquer Me. Some of the information revealed truly disgusted and horrified me. You'd think such political machinations were gone now that we lived in modern times. Pepper was still a snake in the grass and no one disgusted me more than her and plenty of people came close.
Geneva Lee has done a fantastic job at both revealing and concealing secrets. Every time I think that's it, she reveals another piece of the puzzle, taking me back to square one. Crown Me has a lot of questions to answer and I can't wait to read it and find out what the mysterious epilogue meant!
