More About the Author
Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana and has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus, she's blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her family was (is) loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write. They all lived together on a very small farm in a small farm town in the heartland. She grew up with Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).
Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.
And as she keeps growing, it keeps getting better.

Holy Moly. The characters were freaky--he is, like, a TOTAL control kind of guy and she seemed to be just a little to tries-too-hard-to-blend-in with her whisper-like "yeah" responses.
I finished it on a Friday night with a Thankful Sigh.
But, truthfully, I can't get this FREAKING storyline out of my head. I have re-read this book three times already in less than a week and have, at long last, discovered/revealed/admitted that I want/desire/need myself a Knight.
Disturbing storyline? Uh-huh.
Intriguing characters? You betcha.
I really hated this book.
Okay, truthfully? My eyes were glued to every page on my Kindle as I read. My eyes were caught, like a deer in the headlights, on every word of every page.
This is so NOT my scene. And,yet, I couldn't get it out of my mind (but it still kind of resides there, days later). Did I already say that?
Viv really grounds the experiences of Anya and helps me to explain my fascination with the story line of 'Knight'. Explaining that it is not about control or pain but about trust and the relationship; which my head and heart are starting to really understand or in the words of the author, "get".
This is an amazing book that hooks you with it's verbiage--not verbiage or even a storyline that is the accepted 'norm'--but a tale with syntax that you can 'hear' in your heart and head. It is a story that never lets you go from start to finish.
You root for the characters, both Knight and Anya (geez, even Anya's friends and Knight's employees!) and boo anything that gets into the path of fulfillment of them.
Too dirty? Yep, at first reading. But, as I think on it, I've read dirtier scenes that were not as thrilling.Read more ›
One other thing - KA isn't hiding what this novel is - she says it right in the description that this book is erotic and portraying an anti-hero. It seems like those who reviewed negatively, at least some of them, ignored that or didn't read it in the description since those elements seemed to be what turned them off.
Now for the review. Oh. Em. Gee.
Knight is a man. A. MAN.
Anya? She's his woman. That means he's going to treat her how his woman ought to be treated. So will everyone else. End of story. Period.
Sounds like a typical KA hero, right? Right.
Well, here's the difference. Knight was born the kind of person that he is, grew up that way and mastered that way of life. And that person has darkness in him. He's accepted it and when I say there's darkness in him, I'm not talking just a troubled past (which he has) or taking on the tough stuff in life to protect others (which he has). I'm talking about innate, deep seated needs that he doesn't deny, hide or try to disguise as anything other than what they are. He's up front, honest and blunt about it to Anya from the beginning of their relationship.
If she can handle his needs, she gets everything in return. Anything. Whatever is in his power to make her happy.
And for Anya, someone who has had to earn everything in her life through hard work, who has never had anyone she could really depend on - it's almost too good to be true while at the same time being frightening and intriguing.Read more ›
knight was a sexy alpha male who kept me smiling throughout the entire book until the end when I found out he was a pimp and had a stable of 53 "bitches."
I got really sick of his filthy mouth.
At first I thought Anya was a girl who knew what she wanted and that was Knight and his lifestyle but then she found out he was a pump and acted like it was no big deal. He also hates holidays and refuses to let her celebrate any of them. He also owns her so will not marry her.
She should have left him but she stayed because he was a nice pimp and she loved him. (Eye roll.)
I have grown to LOVE Kristen Ashley books. I have read the entire Colorado Mountain Man, Mystery Man, and Rock Chick Series. I'm currently working my way through the 'Burg series, but this one by her caught my eye, so I took a break from the 'Burg to read this one.
This book was completely different than Ashley's other novels. It was a refreshing change of pace for her.
Ashley left behind her normal Denverite speak for this one. I can't decide if that's good or bad, I think I've grown to like it.
Knight was MUCH hotter than KA's other novels. Much. Much. Much much.
There were some really sweet quotes from Knight that made me go all "awwwwww!"
Anya calling Knight "Daddy". Um. Ew?
It felt like a Fifty Shades knock off, and not in a good way.
Knight's actual business was SHOCKING. And how could Anya stay with him after that? She barely even thought about it.
The whole novel felt a little rushed. Maybe she should have broken it down into two books and took a little more time on character development.
The Wrap Up:
I think I like Kristen Ashley's typical novels better. This one just seemed a little too forced for me, and the "Daddy" bit creeped me right out.
" 'Wars fought over a face like this,' he murmured like he was talking to himself, my heart stopped beating and his thumbs moved lightly across my cheeks. 'A man would work himself into the ground for it, go down to his knees to beg to keep it, endure torture to protect it, take a bullet for it,' his eyes came to mine, 'poison his brother to possess a face like this.' "

|What to read after Knight?||
I'm about half-way through Knight, and OMG.... Knight is my favorite kind of character--possessive, protective, and complete alpha male. Gabriel's Inferno has a similar male lead. There aren't really any hot sex scenes like Knight, but there's a lot of tension and sensuality. I thought... Read More
