Publisher's Summary

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, with 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 decides that someone 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 that when she finds out exactly the man he has become and always intends to be, she’ll leave him for good, normal, and clean.

OH KNIGHT KNIGHT KNIGHT YR SUCH A YUMMY BAD BOY

Now there's Alphas, Uber Alphas........ and then there's Knight. He's handsome, sexy, rich, a Dom in the bedroom, talks like a biker with short cropped sentences, he likes things his way and he's decided Anya is his. Anya has had a tough life, she's a hard worker, she makes do with sale stuff, secondhand or damaged furniture and is scraping by. She's also studying and won't take handouts from anyone so when she tries to return something to Knight..... well that's when her life completely changes..... and when all the fun begins.

Loved the hero, loved the heroine, loved the storyline which had instant lust, a bad news brother, two best friends - one's great but one's a disaster, lots of hot sex with a bit of spanking and dirty talk. There's angst and drama as Knight's secrets are spilled and a few revelations when he decides to 'put things right' in his own way with anybody who's caused Anya pain. They are both very protective of their blossoming relationship and try very hard to make time for as many booty calls and together time as they can.

Told from Anya's POV by a skilled narrator who gave a great performance of Knight's distinctive way of talking and his 'take no shit' alpha attitude. There's also a very sweet and tender Epilogue.

Worth a credit? I couldn't stop listening, it ticked ALL my boxes so YEAH, IMO, what's not to love and well worth a credit.

Loved this!

I'm not sure why there so much hate on this book. I loved it!!! Yes he says bitch a lot when referring to women and she calls him daddy when they have sex, but I thought it fit with the characters. It's not like he's some preppy guy on his way to be president or something. Ok so not for everyone, but I thought still very well written and preformed. The narrator was amazing and really got into the character! I loved it!!

Good Knight

So far, this is my favorite in the series. These unfinished heroes are perfect book boyfriends - under the talented narration, the characters come to life in all their alpha goodness. The story grabs you and before you know it, you're done listening and wishing there was more.

Great story. :D

4.5 stars

This was a great book! I Love just about all of KA's books but reading the reviews I wasn't sure how I'd like this book but I was not sorry at all that I bought this book. I seriously love Knight and Anya! They're a great couple.

Anya has had a rough life and had to work for every little thing. She's smart and working full time while going to school with an end goal in mind. She's also loyal which is what leads her to be at a party where she meets Knight. He gives her a ride home and at first doesn't seem interested even when he's helping her out (with more than just the ride home). She knows he's scary but is still attracted to him and doesn't feel threatened by him. From the start she feels his protection of her, even carrying over to her dreams. Since he seems intent on using the scary to keep her safe she gives him a chance once he starts wooing her.

Knight had a disturbing background. It made him in to an honorable but yet dark man. He's done a lot of things that people would condemn but yet I can understand his actions. He's all about keeping his people safe and doing anything that needs to be done to ensure they stay safe and are good. (view spoiler) I liked Knight a lot regardless of his profession. He was good to Anya and treated her special (something she hadn't had for most of her life). He made her happy and I loved seeing it.

While there is some drama in the book I found that it wasn't a huge part of the story line. There are some issues to get past (obviously when she finds out about what he does for a living) but overall they were pretty stable and it was great to see them together. It had a great ending that left me satisfied and happy. I'd totally recommend this book and I'll be reading the next in the series. 2 thumbs up. :)

* note - This story does have a bit of a BDSM feel in the sexual situations. Knight does like to be called Daddy but there's no Daddy kink outside of the use of the title.

If I Had a nickle for every "Oh My God!" Ugh...

Where do I begin... First off, there were so many "Oh God!" and "Oh My God!"'s that I didn't know what to do with my self. And what's with the "yes daddy" bit? I thought that was a bit corny. I can't even tell you how many times I rolled my eyes listening to this book. I need an eye exam to make sure they're ok. Throughout the book I kept asking myself, "Should I just call it quits now and end the torture or should I finish since I've gotten this far?" The story line was ok, but the dialogue was horrible. This book had definite potential. Too bad the dialogue and inner monologue of the heroine sucked so bad. Sigh...

Awful! Awful! Awful!

What would have made Knight better?

The whole book was just crude. Lose the crudeness. Many, many authors write this type of book but I don't find myself cringing from the dialogue. Knight liked the "c**t" word a little too much. He'd used it derogatorily, then uses it with Anya. Yuck! Knight not calling Anya "Babe", wanting her to call him "Daddy", letting his boy greet Anya with "Yo" and telling her to prepare herself for him to plunder. I don't know why but Anya calling him "Honey" drove me up the wall. Lose the forced sounding slang. Lose all the useless descriptions (took the canvas bag of groceries out of the cheap car trunk and placed on the concrete sidewalk or something along those lines, build scenes not entire movies) and not having three pages of character thinking to answer the question asked three pages ago. Cut out some of the "Oh Gods" and "Oh My Gods". Anya is an educated woman, she should be able to come up with a better expletive every once in awhile. I even got tired of the word "strappy". Cut out going on and on how poor Anya is: the chipped furniture, the second hand clothes, the ripped couch, the cheap shoes, yard sales, etc... We get it, we get it! No nice woman, like Anya is supposed to be, would say, ****SPOILER**** "Do you sell pussy?" Even though Knight was ****SPOILER**** an upper class pimp and club owner, he was a likeable guy who protected women. That was acceptable. Anya was written a little too shallow and I find that unacceptable. She was supposed to be this awesome, nice, unaware of her beauty, make-it-on-her-own-modern-day woman who happened to be a submissive. This book made her sound like an empty headed follower. Ms. Ashley should have used some of that scene description effort on character building and a backbone for Anya. The idea is to be submissive not a doormat.Find a different narrator that doesn't sound like "Golly Gee" is about to pop out of her mouth any minute.

Has Knight turned you off from other books in this genre?

It missed on so many levels I would not consider it part of any genre, it is in a class by itself (very crude) which I don't care to explore again. As far as rich guy, poor girl, dominate and submissive relationships, BDSM, romantica, erotica, no, I will keep reading.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Sounds too young and has too much enthusiasm in the wrong places. She would probably be an excellent narrator for a different type of book, maybe something lighter with no sex scenes. She separates her characters well and does a good job on male voices.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Knight?

The final scene or****SPOILER**** whole baby scenario. Also, what happened to Sandrine? She kind of got left hanging out there didn't she. Maybe she's got her own book coming up but I won't be reading/listening to it.

Any additional comments?

I want my money back.

Choppy

struggled to finish. not sure about the flow of dialog. Somehow no one in the story was able to use complete sentences. While this is something I can deal with usually, it seemed unnecessary this time.....

Not my cup of tea

Let me start by saying: I dont like women being called b*#ch, even as a term of endearment. In my opinion that is neither sexy or romantic. I tend to like a wide variety of romance and erotica though, so I thought i would give this a shot. but I had some fundamental issues with the world the author created, as well as the naivety of the heroine. These things pulled me out of the fantasy being created and left me frustrated.

I will also say, the writing itself isn't bad and I did finish the story, although reluctantly. I kept hoping the relationships between the characters, and the characters themselves, would get deeper. But what you see is pretty much what you get. Now if your into stories about gangsters or perhaps if you enjoy MC club books you might enjoy this. Also, this narrator isn't my favorite, which also impacted my review.

I do think there is an audience for this type of book. This one just wasn't for me.

Not appealing

I like K. Ashley books in that she normally has mature characters that I like. They tend to have a little too much of the f...k word but I can cope, I am not a prude. That line "...I did what I was told ..." is overused usually by the female. Okay, all of that I can overlook. However, what turns me off completely is in the scene of lovemaking Knight commands Anya to call him 'Daddy'. It is a serious turn-off and I hope I don't see or hear it in any of Ashley's other books. I doubt I will bother with the rest of this series. There were other things about the characters that was just not appealing like Anya's meekness and Knight's side business to name couple of them but I will stop there.
The narrator did a great job. That much I can say.

Very disappointing from a favourite author

What was most disappointing about Kristen Ashley’s story?

The two lead characters were unlikable in that Knight was beyond dominant, he was bossy and chauvinistic. The female lead had no backbone, no redeeming ability to stand up to Knight. Their pet names spoiled the story completely, they made me completely uncomfortable as they crossed the line of acceptability in my opinion.

How could the performance have been better?

Less simpering

What character would you cut from Knight?

Knight!

Great story, well read.

Knight is my favourite Kristen Ashley man so I put off listening to it as I didn't want *my* Knight ruined. I didn't need to worry, Savannah did a great job.

Kristen is a wonderful story teller and her books create people and places so well. With this book she demonstrates how an image can hide the depth of a soul and remind us to look beyond the visible.

Thank you for bringing love to even the darkest corners.

good but have read better

Would you consider the audio edition of Knight to be better than the print version?

i have never read the print version so can't comment

What did you like best about this story?

not sure really, he was so dominant and bossy which I can't agree with

Which scene did you most enjoy?

no favorite

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

no

Any additional comments?

the story is good and narration is good too but it just lacked something for me, I was waiting for something to happen that never did. The sex was steamy but it left me hanging

Expected better

I found I really enjoyed the Rock Chick series by this author, so I thought I would give this a shot - something which I regret.

I didn't connect with the characters, or the story. In fact, I'm not entirely sure what the story really was!

Don't think I'll be listening to the rest of this book series if this is what it is. Disappointed.

KA kicks butt!

I read all books produced by Kristen, and I love them. This books is the only one of all she has read where I cannot connect with the lead male, Knight himself. He is too cold and too disassociated for me to bond with him. That said another stonking good read, good story, hot lovin' and giggles where needed.

Fabulous read!! Knight is seriously sexy, swoon

Loved, loved, loved this book. Girl at a part and bumps into the a moody guy. Not thrilled his brother is throwing a partying in his pad again. He drives the girl home as his brother clears up his pad. Next chance meeting between the couple happens at his club, he arranges a date with her and a very steamy romance starts from there.

Gripping story with dark undertones. Not your usual romance. Great read! Highly recommend.

Another Kristen Ashley Special...

I enjoyed this book as it paves the way for the other three books in the series so a recommended read if you want to read more Kristin Ashley for you addicts out there! This book is good. A decisive breakaway from Ashley's normal book formula as her hero's (alpha males) are much darker and have suffered more difficult pasts. They also combat the new trend - touching into the fifty shades psyche but it is not a main component in the book. Whilst I love Ashley's books, I would not say this is her strongest story (although if you bare through it, the other three books get better and better...). I also found the nicknames for the characters annoying as halfway through the protagonists starts calling Knight (her man) "Daddy" which after saying it constantly becomes more and more cringe-able. Although overall it is a good performance and worth the time for the impact it has on the rest of the series... my favourite is Deacon.

Very fifty

Considering this book came out about a year after fifty shades, I feel like a bit of plagiarism is at hand. In saying that, I enjoyed the book. It's got your good looking, wealthy, dark history man and your gorgeous but down trodden woman. There are more love scenes in this compared to other books I've read by Kristen Ashley but it's also a bit shorter. There is a lot of the C word used but if it doesn't bother you, then that's fine. The voice is very committed to the story which is good. I would read again.
