I adore Kristen Ashley books. I haven't read a ton, but the ones I have read, I really enjoy. Having said that, I should go ahead and alert you of the small issues that I have had with her books.
1. Her female lead (in the books that I have read so far), almost always questions a question. For example: when any of her female leads are asked a question, they either repeat the question back to the male lead, or as in the case of Anya (the female lead in Knight), she usually just says "huh?" or "pardon?". It may not seem something that significant (and it's not), just a little annoying.
2. The other thing KA does A LOT of is in her description of inanimate objects. In this particular book, it was with the setting of Knight's condo or club office. I enjoy knowing what the setting looks like, but she has a tendency to go overboard with multiple pages of descriptions. Now that, that is out of the way, let's get to the good stuff.
KA is VERY good at writing an ALPHA male lead. Just reference: Max, Tack, Shy, Raid, Tate, and now Knight. Her sex scenes are also pretty spectacular and very balanced (in my opinion). Balanced because she knows how to "dirty" them up in the best of ways, but add the sensuality when needed.
Knight is book one in the series "Unfinished Heroes". I actually read Raid (book 3 in this series) first, which was almost a mistake. While I enjoyed Raid, I didn't enjoy it as much as Motorcycle Man or Sweet Dreams, so I was almost hesitant to read Knight. Which proves to me that I shouldn't read books out of order, so lesson learned. In this book we meet Anya, who is a pretty 27 year old nail technician and beauty school student who dreams of opening her own spa one day. Anya was dealt a crap hand at life, her parents were both murdered when she was just 7, and she was sent to live with her alcoholic aunt. As soon as she was of age, she moved out and never looked back (except in her dreams at night). Knight is a 35 year old, very successful business man, with demons of his own. He owns club Slade, with some business on the side (we won't dive into that, you will have to discover on your own). When Anya first meets Knight, it is at a party his brother Nick is having at his (Knight's) condo. This does not go over well for Knight and Anya being very out of place tries to phone a cab to take her home. Knight INSISTS on being the one to drive her home, and although she is scared out of her mind, she reluctantly agrees. And there you have the set up.
Fortunately, there is not much to spoil here. Shy timid girl, who doesn't recognize all she has to offer someone, meets dominant, controlling, beautiful man. He scares her (not in an abusive way) and she is also so turned on by him it is confusing to her. He is dominant in and out of the bedroom, so if that's not your scene, stay away. But you should know, that it is written in a way that is TOTALLY hot and not demeaning at all. But you should know that his nickname of choice in the bedroom (instead of "sir") is "daddy", be forewarned.
Even I can admit the story of the shy girl who meets the dominant man has been done. But don't let that deter you from this story, it is written very well and I think you will fall in love with these characters (especially if you are a Kristen Ashley fan). I look forward to reading book 2, Creed, and will then most likely reread Raid. I will let you know how it goes.
Well written, and the dialogue was great. I was however a little disappointed that it was single POV. I love reading the inner thoughts of the heroes. Epilogue was fantastic. Letting us have a bit more of the happily ever after is always a smart move in my opinion. There were also lots of really great supporting characters (aside from Sandrine). There was a lot of sex, and it was out of this world hot!
This book is a must read!
HEA, single POV (Anya), no cheating, triggers would be the whole dom/sub thing of course.
