This is a dark delicious read about a devastatingly beautiful devil (and angel) of a man; and his love of all that is normal, good and exquisitely...purely beautiful about his love, Anya Gage. Knight is the fiercely private owner of the hottest and trendiest nightclub in Denver. He is a man of obvious means and taste. He, of course, is insanely gorgeous. I do love it when an author pays particular attention to the eyes and Knight's eyes were "A strange, startling, dark, vibrant, Prussian blue." Knight is a controlling Alpha male that will leave the lover of all things "Alpha male" with their tongues hanging out...literally. 😛 He works, lives and breathes with his own code of justice in a shadowy underworld outside the law.
The story of Knight is told through the character of Anya Gage. She is a rare beauty with breathtaking facial features, a kick-ass real woman's body and again lovely gray eyes that have a midnight blue rim around the iris. Anya endured a life-altering tragedy in her childhood that changed her entire circumstances as she grew into womanhood. Presently, she has dreams...nightmares really... of the psychological abuse she endured all those years from her custodial guardian, her aunt. This aunt was drug addicted in addition to possessing childish impulses to blame her own dreary existence on and demean Anya at every opportunity.
Anya Gage was a girl and a woman of character who took responsibility for herself and her own life, working hard, learning and remaining steadfast in achieving her dreams. She radiated beauty and exuded the type of honest, subtle but "siren-like", irresistible sexuality that begs to be possessed. She was free and clean from taint of crime and drugs in her life. She made the best of what she had. She was also a fiercely loyal and protective friend.
When Knight and Anya meet, it seems brusque...almost mysterious. The reader is hungry to know just what in heaven's name is this guy thinking. When we know the whole story at the end, the reader can reflect back to this first meeting and sense that although intrigued, "turned on" and compulsively looking out for Anya's safety, perhaps Knight felt a little insecure at this beauty and her lack of guile...She possessed a certain type of innocence. he, perhaps felt unworthy in her lovely presence.
Knight's early life was searing in the intensity of the type of neglect and abuse that he suffered in his early childhood. This back story allows the reader to extend a greater acceptance of Knight in his shadowy underworld. This man, named Knight was inspired by his name to be a protector. What and how he protects when it is finally revealed in the narrative is surprising. As a true love is wont to do, Anya accepts him as he is in his underworld role. She knows he was made for her as she was made for him.
The entire read is the development and unfolding of the mystery of the character that is Knight as experienced through the eyes of Anya. The intimate scenes are "off the charts" mind expanding to the point of mind blown HOT!!! And lest I forget to mention...the author initially drags out the reader's agony with how and when the first kiss...the first everything happens.
I have but a few quibbles and believe me I know they are just my personal preferences...I really wanted the wedding for Anya. Perhaps it was more realistic for it not to happen but still...And, I was just a little uncomfortable with...let's say...the main focus of Knight's business other than his nightclub. At a certain point, you would think that he had enough money to invest in other legal undertakings and offer his "employees" a reeducation program or some such thing. I prefer a little more enlightenment about the fact that all woman deserve respect...regardless of shape, size, station in life, etc... I do remember though that Knight did tell us up front that he would never live clean.
Overall, the sheer enjoyment found in the read definitely outweighed any of my personal issues. Just as in life, not everything is made or written to suit my preferences. It would be immature of me to dismiss all that is wonderful about the read over a few "quibbles". There truly was a lovely HEA and it was a joy to arrive at it with both characters. One more thing...I really did like Knight's dirty, dirty mouth. It was fascinating how this author could have Anya interpret the saying of one word in so many ways 😉. I leave it for you as a reader to guess at or better yet, one click to find out this special word so often used by Knight.
Omg. He gave her a wedding band But said and I quote 'that's just not me babe, but I will always be yours?!? Wtf? That sucked and I Don't really care about his 'pimperfession' but for goodness sake you really love her so why not marry her?. She has your baby but you still won't???!!! But you love her so much??? NOT!!! I really wanted to love this book. I really did. But I just didn't understand him. And how did his brother know what he did with his woman??? Steaks dresses etc? Yet the H denied it. That part was shady. I still really liked the book a lot. The sex scenes were a little too much and I didn't think it was romantic but it was hot. And I kept thinking people that smoke had bad breath and who has sixteen orgasms in an hour and likes to be spanked??? I did like the book and I think he was hot but it was Pretty Woman on porn. I got tired of his f me and his daddy and baby sex talk. Oh well. I probably won't read this author again but I am glad I read this one.
Not your usual romance, yet not erotica. Gorgeous story telling here. I had just finished reading the Magdalene series. I love her fantasyland series also. I was really undecided for the longest time whether to start this series but I am not sorry I did; I just bought ebooks 2-4 and I hope they are every bit as good as Knight.
Knight did it for me, so rough, so no nonsense in control but he loved and loved deeply. Anya recognized that about him, even though I don't think she realized it at first but she got it very quickly.
You will not go wrong if you like the strong alpha male. Highly recommended. If I could give it 10 stars I would.
As soon as Knight and Anya met I had a million questions and was fascinated by Knight. Intense doesn't cover it. Dominating. Controlling. Aggressive. Demanding, intriguing, sexy, and secretive. He had all those bases covered. Anya is sweet and has fought hard for everything she has and tries to stand up to him but since Knight is who he is, that's rather hard to do. It creates bits of drama, nothing over the top, some angst, and a lot of hotness! I really liked their story and learning their histories. Knight can be so gruff and overbearing but mixed in with all that attitude and dominating ways are these sweet moments that make you melt. I loved those moments so you could really see that underneath, he was a good guy (in his own way).
Great writing with an interesting cast of characters. I did think there were a few parts in the front half that were a bit drawn out. Excellent pace in the second half.
There was excellent hotness. Knights not shy with the dirty talk and wordage. There is a nice nontraditional D/s element happening, it was intense and erotic. I can't not mention the name exchange that happens between these two, I was warned about it so I was prepared, it was a bit... odd... but hey. It worked for them. I kind of just had to accept it and go with it.
Really great read. I didn't know what to expect besides an intense alpha male (which I totally got) but it also had a great emotional element with their soft words and whispers. Kristen Ashley always does a really great job of pulling me in. Be prepared for intense and hot!
