Knight & Play (Knight #1)
There's only one thing in life Lucien Knight really hates, and that's husbands who cheat on their wives. There's only one problem in Sophie Black's life. Her cheating husband... From the moment Lucien & Sophie meet, the seal is set. Romantic, emotional & intensely erotic, Knight and Play is the perfect read for lovers of international bestsellers Fifty Shades & Bared To You. Let yourself be swept away by Part One of the Knight series from Kitty French, a romance so hot it'll burn your fingers... CEO of Knight Inc. Lucien Knight is catch-your-breath gorgeous and damaged by his troubled past in Norway. All grown up and relocated to London, he's built his empire of adult clubs from the ground up to become the gorgeous patron saint of the sex industry. No one knows the dark childhood secrets that have given Lucien a backbone of steel and a heart encased in ice. No one until Sophie Black, that is... From the moment girl-next-door Sophie accepts the job as Lucien Knight's PA, she understands how Alice must have felt when she tumbled down the rabbit hole. Lucien takes her safe, vanilla life away and plunges her head first into a huge dish of fantasy flavours. Rich, spicy chocolate covered with dark, oozingly lickable sauce? Check. Tutti-frutti with indecently red, glistening cherries on the top? Yes please. Lucien strips away all of Sophie's inhibitions, and when he instructs her to select three new toys, she soon realises he has more than a game of Monopoly on his mind... He's opened the door to a whole new pleasure packed world without limits, and Sophie is utterly intoxicated. But how far is she willing to go? And what happens when she has to step back into reality again? Lucien & Sophie's is a story of star crossed love and forbidden passion, a sexual odyssey that spans the globe and changes both of their lives forever. Let it change yours, too.
"You deserve to be adored, and you deserve to be fucked until you can't stand up."
Um yes, that is Mr. Lucien Knight *fans self* for lovers of erotic romance, a new sexy Viking is in town!
Kat and Stace were telling me how much I needed to read this trilogy and how I would fall head over heels for Lucien, so of course I had to find out more. By the end, I hadn't fallen completely in love with Mr. Knight but I knew I was getting there.
Sophie Black is looking for a change so she throws caution to the wind and applies for a job as Lucien Knight’s PA, a very successful business mogul in the adult sex club industry. Sophie has no idea by sealing her application form with a kiss; she has in fact sealed her fate. She starts on a journey of sexual awakening that will change her life completely.
Sophie is very much married but she has had suspicions for a while that her hubby is having an affair, Sophie can only avoid the advances of her boss for so long before she is giving in to the promise of sexual self-discovery and pure pleasure.
Lucien was every inch the dark alpha hero. Admittedly, it took me a while to warm to him but I think that was due to his character being closed off, as much as he wanted Sophie, he wasn't willing to let her in. This was purely physical for him (but then isn't that what they all say?).
Usually I'm not one for adultery story lines, sure it helped that Sophie's husband was a cheating douche and I wanted her to be with Lucien, I don't condone it but at the end of the day it was fiction and it made for some entertaining reading.
I liked the change we witnessed in Sophie, she started off as this timid girl, accepting the way her life was and as her relationship developed with Lucien and became more than just sex, her confidence grew and she stood up to both Lucien and her husband. Lucien wanted that for Sophie and due to his mother's death he was hell bent on Sophie taking what she wanted, I do look forward to learning more about Lucien's past. We got glimpses of this during their very sexy getaway to Norway, I loved this setting and the tree scene was very hawtt!
The sex scenes were hot, Lucien was hot and Sophie was more than willing. I thought Kitty's writing held some promise, usually I struggle with third person narrative but this did allow me to gain insight into each of the characters, even Sophie's cheating hubby when he discovered he had made a mistake by having an affair for the last three years *rolls eyes* so yes he deserved what was coming.
It took me a while to finish this book, I had to stop reading to fit in a book I had to review for a tour and then I found myself not picking it up in a while, although it was an enjoyable read, I wasn't crazy in love with Lucien. I am glad I finally picked it up again as the last quarter of the book I had left to read was the most angst filled. Lucien displayed a chink in his armour and Sophie's confidence in herself grew. I am definitely intrigued to follow them on their journey and with the way the book ended, I am so glad I can dive into book two immediately.
Knight and Play is a sexy story full of forbidden passion, a well-experienced Viking sex God and plenty of erotic scenes. It is definitely worth a read.
"She was captive, at his mercy, and she loved it."
"There was only one thought in his mind as sleep claimed him. He would protect this woman. He wouldn't fail again."
"She instinctively tightened her arms around Lucien, holding him in wonder for giving her the most intensely erotic sex she'd ever known, and in gratitude for giving her the confidence to step back into her old life again as a woman to be reckoned with."
"Sex with Lucien was a cross between the most sweeping romantic movie and the filthiest porn flick; he was feather gentle and filthy erotic all at the same time."
"Some time just after one and somewhere in between awake and asleep, Sophie moved beneath him again. Tangled limbs. Entwined fingers. Damp cheeks. Bruised hearts."
Knight & Stay (Knight #2)
Sophie black has turned her back on both her cheating husband and her sexy, enigmatic boss Lucien Knight. When she hits rock bottom, she finds herself drawn back into Lucien's glamorous no strings, high stakes world of intensely erotic encounters. Bold and beautiful, Lucien is a walking, talking Viking sex god-the ultimate rebound guy. His is a seductive world of pleasure without limits or commitment, but can Sophie's already bruised heart survive his strictly no ties rule?

How does she choose between the man she vowed to love forever and the man who she hadn´t planned on loving at all? Knight & Stay is a star-crossed romantic adventure that spans the globe from Paris to the glittering artic northern lights, a sexual odyssey of love and lust that changes the lives of everyone involved forever.
Where to even begin with Mr. Lucien Knight? Hmmm... how about...
I LOVE him!
He's silently romantic.
He's sexy, charming, and witty.
I would let him do anything to me!
I LOVE him.
He makes me want to visit Norway.
I want him to buy me eggs *blushes* and drink champagne with him *blushes profusely*.
I want him to talk dirty to me.
Oh and...I LOVE him!
Kitty wrote a fabulous man here ladies! I'm so glad she shared him with us. And I only wanted to jump into my kindle and hit him once!
The way he steps in and takes charge and to make sure nothing bad happens to Sophie is totally admirable and something we all want in a man. Even if us strong woman think we can take care of ourselves, you’ll still want a man like Lucien by your side. Lucien’s charisma and charm jump off the pages and hold your book loving heart warm and safe, so much so it’s hard to let go and sad when the story comes to an end.
And I love Sophie. Which is kind of rare for me to love a female MC so much because most of them annoy the hell out of me! Maybe I love her cause I want to be her? Lucky, lucky, Princess! She never gave up on her love for Lucien. She ran after what she wanted and got it!
"As a child I loved my mother, and as a man I love you."
"I love every beautiful fucking inch of you, Sophie Black"
Kitty is a beautiful writer whose words float across the pages. The story of Lucien and Sophie is captivating and you will not want to put it down.
They tried to walk away from each other, but when it's true love, that is never really an option. They both learned to trust and love again and they did it together, for each other. They created a love to last a lifetime, a truly beautiful love. I've read a lot of books too saturated with sex scenes lately, but let me tell you, this one has lots and not once did I skip them! They were that great! Their chemistry was hot and steamy and there was never a dull moment. I cannot say enough great things about this book, or the whole series for that matter.
Are you ready to fall in love with Lucien Knight? Oh I really think you are!
Knight & Day (Knight #3)
Kara Brookes hates liars. Dylan Day hasn’t told the truth from the moment his plane touched down in Ibiza. It’s a recipe for disaster. Lucien and Sophie are back, and have set up camp on the sun-drenched isle of Ibiza for the opening of the latest of Lucien’s strictly adult clubs. They’re joined for the summer by Sophie’s best friend Kara, and Dylan Day, Lucien’s newly appointed club manager. The laid back, smokin’ hot surf guy from California seems almost too good to be true… but there’s no smoke without fire. It’s going to be a long hot summer of love, lust, lies and wedding bells. But who will get their happy ever after? Romantic, emotional and intensely erotic, Knight & Day is the thrilling final installment of the USA Today bestselling Knight Series from Kitty French.
"I'd rather have ugly truths than pretty lies."
*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*
I was left satisfied with Lucien and Sophie's story so I was unsure how I would like Kara being in the spotlight. I must say I enjoyed getting to know Kara better, she really is a feisty character and she had me laughing out loud many times. Of course I was pleased to see Sophie and Lucien were a huge part of this story and we got two couples for the price of one.
Sophie, Lucien and Kara head to Ibiza to open up another club, a few years have lapsed since book two and their business has only gone from strength to strength. A tall, handsome american stranger turns up looking for work and even though Lucien has every reason not to, he hires him on a whim by his gut instinct alone. Dylan Day hints at secrets from the moment we meet him and as Kara falls under his spell, I knew it would all come tumbling out.
I liked the setting of Ibiza, I felt the author did very well with the feel of the book and it captured the laid back, sunshine feel. I especially loved the 'The Love Tug', Dylan's accommodation during his stay and the scene of many a hot time for him and Kara.
Kara's life had been filled with liars and she told Dylan he would be no exception so he dare not cross her.
"I meant every word of it, Dylan Day. Lie to me and I'll cut your cock off and pickle it."
And Dylan really should have heeded the warning. Of course his past turns up to haunt him and at this point I couldn't help but feel sorry for them both. Kara was in too deep and Dylan genuinely wanted to start a fresh and be someone else, his intention was not meant to hurt Kara but instead set himself free.
There were some really lovely scenes, especially with Sophie and Lucien and their special day on the beach, even for Kara and Dylan it was a lovely time. But Dylan put off telling Kara the truth and I was reading with bated breath as I knew the inevitable would happen and it would all come spilling out.
Knight and Day was a good end to the trilogy, we got to know Kara better and enjoy some hot sexy times with her perfect match in Dylan Day, I was especially pleased to see Lucien and Sophie's lives progress even further. The epilogue sure left me with a huge smile.
I really like Kitty French's writing, she adds depth to her stories and creates endearing characters whilst simultaneously giving us a hot steamy read to devour. Fans of the series must read this today!
