The Dmitry’s Royal Flush: Rise of the Queen Train is finally on the move!

It’s Time to Talk DRF!

Well, ladies, many of you have received your books by now and it’s time to start talking about each chapter and breaking down the characters. I’m so excited that we have moved to this point in the series, where we are have in-depth discussions about our favorite friends. If you haven’t already, please make sure to become a subscriber of the blog, so that you can have updates as soon as they are posted. Also whether you agree or disagree, please feel free to put in your feedback.

So, let’s kick it off. Today, we’re going to start the conversation off with the first chapter. Specifically, we are going to talk about Royal Medlov and her relationship on the manor with the staff, her family and herself. In chapter one, we see the cold side of Royal Stone. She’s obviously cranky and mean. But if you notice, she directs it more to Dmitry than her daughter, and sometimes when it regards him, it ricochets off of Dmitry onto other people, like Brigitte (for taking up for Dmitry) and Davyd (for getting her straight about her priorities).

However, I think it’s clear that her frustration is towards the man that she loves. I wanted to show in the first chapter that old habits die hard and old problems don’t always fix themselves. Like with any marriage, if you don’t address the problems, if you’re not open and ready to communicate, you’ll find yourself in a world of hurt many years down the line. Have you ever looked at your husband or significant other and instantly thought about something that could have been avoided if he was just honest? Now, let’s multiply that by about 100. Even though Dmitry could give her everything financially, there was something missing. What was it? Well, I don’t want to give too much of the story up, but tell me what your thoughts are?

  1. I just got my book yesterday. I need time give me a week. I let you know what I think.

  2. The first time I read chapter 1, I was both shocked and puzzled. After reading Dmitry’s Closet you actually felt the love both Royal and Dmitry expressed towards each other at the end of the book. In DRF not only do you feel Royal and Dmitry’s disconnect towards each other, you feel the lack of communication within the marriage.

    Clearly Dmitry loves Royal but he doesn’t seem to know how to express his feelings towards her to get through the barriers Royal had built around her. They both express their love for Anya.

  3. I think chapter 1 is about trauma not drama
    I read it twice and picked up on Royal being gray at 26, drugged or crying during holidays. This is a woman in pain

    I reckon the lack of communication is because Dmitry is afraid and to be honest they never really had the time to talk

    He rescued her after the rape, she was in a semi coma and was heavily pregnant when she ‘physically’ healed so it is not something he would want to bring up…

    Like Latrivia said, things can pile up
