REVIEW: Knight by Kristen Ashley
Author: Kristen Ashley
Date Published: 4/8/12
Anya Gage has learned that to get anything good in life, you have to work for it. She has no expectations, no dreams.
Then she finds herself at a party where she doesn’t want to be and she meets Knight.
Knight Sebring knows who he is, what he wants and what he likes. And he gets it. But he never expected something as sweet as Anya Gage to wander into his bedroom during a party he did not expect to be having to borrow his phone.
Knight tries to leave Anya to the life she deserves of white picket fences and a man who watches football on Sundays – good, normal and clean. But when Anya comes to his nightclub and finds herself in a situation, he knows someone has to look after her, he can’t fight it anymore and he decides that man will be him.
Knight teaches Anya that, just as with the bad, in life you should also expect the good. And he teaches her this by giving it to her.
But Knight has a dark past and just as he desires Anya for exactly who she is, he fears when she finds out exactly the man he has become and always intends to be, she’ll leave him for good, normal and clean.
As far as Kristen Ashley books go, this one is a little different.While she is known for her ALPHA males, this is her first book where she introduces us to a DOMINANT male lead. There are some aspects of BDSM in this one.
I for one am not put off by BDSM in the least. Their D/s dynamic is a little different than most, but I think it really worked for them.
Knight is a mystery, he has a secret and thinks his past and who he is will not be good enough for Anya.
Anya is one of my favorite female leads, she is so incredibly likable and I found myself entering her head so easily.
The chemistry between these two is off the charts. The sex scenes are scorching! I don't know if it was the added BDSM element or what but, WOW!
