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.

So good!!!

That was good! Like, really, really good
I can't even explain what is really amazing about the book, and that is weird for me - I can ramble and explain most things. In this case, it is all about Knight, to quote Vivica - I really love that man! Everything about him, the good, the bad, the ugly and the sweet and the scary - he is such a fully formed character when he should be two-dimensional, he should be corny but he is strong and supportive and ......and ...... amazing! The key is that we see him as Anya sees him, and we learn about him as Anya learns about him, so it isn't a far stretch that we love him as Anya loves him
I definitely had a book hang-over after this one, wondering why everyone wasn't as floored as I was by the experience!!!

I read this book a few years ago and only thought it was ok. But after seeing the reviews, I decided to give the audiobook a try and this experience was much better thanks to Savannah Richards! She really brought this story to life for me! I will be continuing with the audiobooks!

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.

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...

Awesome performance

I read this book and liked it so much I bought the audible. BUT as much as I liked I LOVE the audible version. Love Savannah Richards performance. I could listen to her all day long. Ms Richards draws you into the story and allows to live it and be in the moment.

Yes, it was crude....but boy, it was hot, too!

What did you love best about Knight?

Knight was too domineering, too bossy. In reality, the way he acts and how he orders, Anya, would never Orkney with me (or any women) I'd imagine. At first, I didn't like the story....but, it was addictive, it was hot, and I could not stop listening. I thoroughly enjoyed it!

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.....

Trying too hard to compete with 50 Shades of Gray

I love Kristen Ashley because she develops such well rounded characters, but although these characters are well fleshed out and generally compelling -- the focus on Knight's dom proclivities and an excessive number of sex scenes make this book tiresome to listen to.

I wanted to get to the story, but I had to listen to all the details of their sexual encounters first. I was afraid to fast forward past all the f___ing and c__k s___ing and other coarse and churlish material in case I might miss some detail that was important to the story. If I had been reading the book myself, I could have skimmed past the incessant, crude sex scenes, but with audiobooks you don't have as much choice.

I am as bored with the popular bandwagon of S & M "romance" novels as I am of vampires and teenage wizards. I just want a good story with well written characters. KA used to deliver that. I hope the rest of the series is not all about sexual domination.

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.
