Knight & Day by Kitty French
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
My initial reaction to hearing that there was going to be a third book in the Knight series by Kitty French
But then… I found it wasn’t just about Lucien and Sophie and I got concerned. I mean… I fell hard for these two and even though their story wraps up pretty wonderfully in book 2, I couldn’t help but be greedy and want more. Plus, what and who could French give us to consume our thoughts while reading that would overshadow Lucien?
Dylan Day… that’s who.
You know from the very beginning that Dylan isn’t telling the truth about who he is or why he’s in Ibiza and looking for a job. But pieces are falling into place for him here, he is appointed Club Manager by Lucien and a friendship begins to form between the two. Then he meets Kara Brooks.
Kara is the little sister Lucien never had and the best friend of Sophie. She & Sophie also own the boutiques inside of Lucien’s clubs and from the very first meeting you can sense the explosive chemistry that Dylan and Kara have. It’s just a matter of time before they cave right?
“You like things that are bad for you, English.”
“It’s my downfall. I like sugar. I like fast cars. I like sexy men.”
After being left at the alter a year ago by a cheating fiancé, the one thing that Kara asks from Dylan, is that he doesn’t lie to her. But you know that there are things in his past that he’s not telling about, and the longer that goes on the worse you know it’s going to be. Despite knowing that, I found it hard to not fall for Dylan…
“You like dirty talk, English?”
And holy balls, let me tell you this man delivers.
What starts as a no commitments, just sex relationship evolves into more as the months go by. But the big question is … despite their whirlwind of a romance, when the truth comes out, can they still make it work?
I absolutely loved both Dylan (as you can tell) and Kara in this story. She’s the type of heroine I find myself really enjoying. She’s strong, smart and independent… Yes, she’s determined to hide her heart away because she doesn’t want to get hurt anymore, but she finds herself falling for the sexy and charming man she can’t seem to avoid.
“I could love you, Dylan Day.”
“I could love you too.”
There is an added bonus to this story. French does give us readers bits and pieces of Sophie and Lucien’s story. She expertly weaves them into Knight & Day and while this is truly Dylan and Kara’s story, we get their points of view in a way that works seamlessly.
My one complaint if I had to state one, is the end felt incredibly rushed to me. We never get any explanation as to why Kara changed her mind. I would have liked a little bit more on that… but honestly, that was minor in the grand scheme for me.
I’m honestly a big fan of Kitty French and her writing and this book just solidified that fact for me.
If you’re a fan of erotic romance that isn’t overly dramatic and wrought with drama… romance with sexy guys, and insanely hot dirty talk don’t pass this series up. I’m definitely waiting to see what Kitty French has in store for us readers next!
