***received these arcs for exchange for my honest review***
Knight and Play
“He was the most enigmatic man she’d ever met. On the one hand he was a Thor-like sex warrior, perfectly at home slinking around the debaucherous outposts of his commercial empire, and on the other hand he was a man who craved his solitude and privacy and loved this rare and extra-ordinary setting. It was a heady combination, and it left Sophie wanting very much to know the roots of this man who existed between the two extremes.”
Strong, gorgeous…but damaged! After having a horrible childhood in Norway, he moves to London to become the man he wants to be. Running a large company that runs adult clubs, he is the sex god that all the ladies want to get to know but Lucien is not interested. He isn’t interested in relationships or feelings, until that day when his world changes when he receives a job application int he post with a lipstick kiss on the envelope. He has finally seen something he wants, even if he isn’t sure why.
“The girl was eighty percent kitten and twenty percent lioness, and he considered it his mission to make her roar. Sexual potential shone out of her like a beacon, and her insistence otherwise only made him want to prove her wrong even more. Besides, there was the small matter of her husband. If there was one thing that really made Lucien’s skin crawl, it was men who treated women badly.”
Needing to get out of a job that she hates she applies to be PA to a company owner. Little did she know that a simple kiss on the envelope for luck would start a journey that she tries to escape from, but really she doesn’t want to. Sophie is quiet and shy so when she finds out what the company is all about she is shocked but she doesn’t let it show, she refuses to let Lucien make her feel uncomfortable…not matter how much he tries. When she finds that her husband is cheating she starts a love affair with Lucien and it is like nothing she has ever experienced before. He is what she has wanted all her life, but will she ever be able to have everything that she wants from him….his heart?
I loved this story!! Lucien was such a strong alpha character but he has that weakness, and it is in the shape of Sophie. The relationship they have starts out about the power but it quickly turns to passion. Lucien’s goal is simple to begin with, show Sophie that she deserves more than a cheating husband but it soon turns into something else. He can’t give her the feelings that she wants but somehow he still can’t walk away. I love the way that Lucien manages to pull Sophie out of her shell and we find she is a very sensual person when she lets herself be! This story totally dragged me into it and wouldn’t let me leave until the end of it, there was everything I want in a story! There was angst, sex, love, emotions and lots and lots of hot sex…wait maybe I mentioned that before!! It was the type of book that had me wanting to read ahead really quickly….but then I wanted to slow down and savour the story!
Knight and Stay.
“You want me. And I’m here, now, saying I want you too, saying I love you, and I don’t know where the hell it’ll end up, but I’m brave enough to say that right now you’re my everything. You’ve opened my eyes, and my body, and my heart so much more than I knew existed, and you make me feel beautiful, and protected, and adored, and I don’t think you could do all of those things if you didn’t love me back.”
After the cliffhanger of the last part of this story I was waiting not so patiently for this book….and I wasn’t disappointed! Questions were going through my head all the time, who will Sophie pick? It has to be Lucien…she can’t go back to her husband? OMG when will she see sense? Yeah you saw where my thoughts were going. It started with a bang and it just seemed to gather pace. I mean really did Sophie’s husband really expect to return home and all would be forgiven…once he had decided his new girlfriend isn’t actually what he wanted? I know they were married but he stepped away from it…and yes I know so did Sophie but only after she found out about him! I know it isn’t the playground…but he started it! I know exactly who I would pick in this dilemma but when Lucien really doesn’t get involved like that it makes the decision harder for her, who should she give her heart to? And when she loses everything, marriage, her affair with Lucien and her job will she be able to survive?
And can Lucien give in to the feelings that he believes he isn’t feeling? He is still strong in this book but you can see bits of his wall crumble all the way through this book. Not that he doesn’t still control everything the way he wants…but lets be honest thats what makes him so damn hot! When Sophie returns to ask for her job back he is more than happy too give her it, and with the rules that she brings to the table will he be able to follow them?
Even though you know where this story is going to end…or at least you pray it will end there… I was still stuck in this story until I was finished. I just couldn’t put it down. There was so much emotion in this book that it took you on a totally different ride but it still had the same feeling as the first story, hot and angsty. I would say the writing in this improved, not that the first one was written badly at all it is just the characters seemed to find their stride in this one. I loved the feeling of this book, the way that they handled their relationship and the way that Sophie wasn’t clingy and whiney! They got their HEA which I just adored but I honestly think I could read about Lucien and Sophie forever!
“You asked me in Paris how many women I’d loved. I said one. I should have said two.” He cupped her cheek, his thumb rubbing over her bottom lip. “As a child I loved my mother, and as a man I love you.”
Knight and Day.
“I could love you, Dylan Day.”
He kissed her again, open-mouthed, his hands in her hair. “I could love you too.”
A man running from his past, he creates a new person to try and outrun his demons. Trying to find a friend who may help him with his new life, he ends up at Lucien’s bar only to be offered the managers job. Lucien knows he is running from something but he is the one man that can understand that. The plan is to work and lay low…that is until the day he is faced with a little spitfire int eh club who is wielding a vibrator! How could that not catch his attention? When he can no longer keep away from Kara he promises to tell her the truth but keeps putting it off, until one day his past catches up and leaves him holding the baby….and I mean that literally!
After being left at the alter Kara is finding it very difficult to trust anyone, so when she falls for the handsome bar manager she doesn’t realise he isn’t who she thinks he is. When things seem to be going to good to be true she is returned to earth with a bang. She wasn’t meant to fall for him, she was meant to be strong, but now that she has fallen for the man behind the lies can she forgive him and love the man who she fell for?
This book still has Lucien and Sophie in it, they continue their love story and its nice to see that they are still happy and see what else life holds for them. But the story focuses mainly around the story of Dylan and Kara. Even though I love Lucien and I can’t seem to be able to get enough of him, this story was fantastic! Meeting the new characters and seeing their struggles they have to endure to see if they can have their HEA is great, and there is still enough of the original characters to keep me a happy camper.
There wasn’t as much drama in this book, but it worked for these characters. Lets be honest no one is ever going to be as intense as Lucien so thankfully Kitty hasn’t tried to make Dylan like him. He has his own strengths and it makes him hot….not Lucien hot but hot!! The relationship between Dylan and Kara was intense, front eh minute they saw each other there was that intensity, and even if neither of them wanted to admit it there was more to it. When Dylan’s past caught up to him I felt like screaming, it was so intense and I knew something huge was young to happen….and I wasn’t disappointed!! This book was just as good as the other two, even when sometimes by book three I am losing interest in a series this one has hooked me in and I want more more more!!
If you haven’t read this series you really need to add it to your TBR list…and really really quickly! It has everything Emotions, angst, sexiness, alphas and strong women! It is a fantastic combination and Kitty writes it so well! Ok I will stop gushing about this series now…..but go buy it! ❤
