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.

So I picked up this book from a recommendation on goodreads, I was going through a darker romance/alpha guy phase and I wanted something more on the hot and steamy side. This book definitely fit the bill that’s for sure.

Okay so first things first, I really don’t like when guys want to be called “Daddy” it’s just… weird. Or when guys refer to themselves in third person, like when Knight is with Anya he’ll say things like “Baby wants her Daddy”. I’m sure its not something that will bother everyone, but I have to admit it made me squirm when I read it the first few times, it just felt gross, but after reading it about a million time I got used to it.

Okay and now for more content related things. I liked Anya. I liked that she wasn’t a woman who expected a man to spoil her. I liked that she worked for everything she has, I mean she works her butt off, and she knows how she got every piece of furniture in her apartment because she appreciates the time and effort that went into getting her life to where it is now. I like people like that. I also liked that she was able to stand up for herself, even when she was scared, like when Nick is in Knight’s apartment and she was forceful in her demands, she doesn’t back down or cower, which is nice.

Knight is an interesting character. He is without a doubt a hard core alpha guy. I didn’t always like his speech patterns (there was something about some of the ways he phrased things that just made me want to send him back to english class), but for the most part I liked him a lot. He was really controlling, but at the same time he was never really confusing. I mean I don’t like when guys are controlling or possessive but then never talk or explain why they are the way they are, sometimes I thought Knight over explained his motivations. But at least you always knew where you stood with him, it wasn’t like walking through a maze.

The two of them together are really great, they sizzle on the page, but more than that they grew as a couple and as people together. The people that Anya and Knight are at the end of the book are not the same people they were in the beginning. I love when characters evolve together. Overall I enjoyed reading this book, I liked the alpha guy thing, so if you like a good alpha guy with some seriously steamy scenes then you should check out this book.

About Kristen Ashley

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA. She nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorise and she hadn't taken her first breath!).

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana but has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus she has been blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her posse is loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write.

Kristen was raised in a house with a large and multi-generational family. They lived on a very small farm in a small town in the heartland and existed amongst the strains of Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).
