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.

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.

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.
