Review: Altair by Marian Tee


You are probably unaware of this…

But my first glimpse of you was not at the royal palace, with you standing tall and proud while my father came bearing gifts, one of which included…me.

My father was of the old ways. He believed he was doing me a favor. I would be the envy of many, he told me, for I was to be bride of your cousin, the king.
Your cousin, who already had a queen.
But I digress.
As I said earlier, that day was not the first time I met you.
Our story, alshaykh, started much, much earlier than that…

My opinion:

I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

Altair by Marian Tee is a contemporary romance. It’s the fifth and final book from the Desert Sheikh Romance series.

Sheikh Altair Al-Atassi had lost his father a few years ago because he trusted the wrong people and he vowed to never let that happen again. After many years he had found a traitor that would lead him to the person who had harmed his family. He created a plan, he would be engaged to Sheikh Mahmud’s daughter, princess Safiya, in order to use her against him. His plan didn’t work exactly as he had hoped because he started falling in love with the young girl. It has been a long time since he let himself feel something for anyone but he couldn’t control himself anymore. Safiya had won his heart but unfortunately not his trust which was what tore them apart. He had lost the only woman who captured his heart and he wasn’t sure if he should go after her.

The story is based on the marriage of convenience theme. The plot is very interesting with a lot of emotion and a little suspense. In this one, the love grew over the years even though from the girl’s side there was this instant adoration. There are a few erotic scenes and some funny ones based on the female character’s quirks. It has a nice flow that gradually intensifies and then the huge surprise hits you out of the blue. The last few chapters had me crying like a baby. The characters were the exact opposite but had good chemistry. He was the dangerous silent type who didn’t let himself love anyone. She was the most innocent, loving, and caring human being. She was an angel. I can’t say which was my favorite scene because it would be a spoiler but I will say that it was a scene that broke me, I felt sorry for Safiya.

It’s one of my favorite books from this series and I highly recommend you to read it. I will rate it with 4 stars.
