This is the first book in Kristen Ashley’s Unfinished Heroes series, where bad boys rule supreme and the smexy factor has been raised to keep-a-spare-pair-of-knickers level. Knight Sebring is first up. When

Anya first spots Knight at a party she didn’t really want to go to and she is struck not just by his good looks, but by his ability to change the mood of a room just by being in it, and at the moment he was pissed off. But that wasn’t the last she would see of Knight, after a chance meeting resulting in him taking her home, she can’t stop thinking about him, dreaming about him, not realizing that Knight feels the same way and is determined to possess her any way he can…

Well Daddy… spank my arse and call me Shirley! I loved this book! I wasn’t quite sure what to expect as Kristen Ashley’s heroes are normally pretty bad ass anyways, but Knight takes it that one step further and pushes what us readers would normally find acceptable. But after seeing Knight in action I couldn’t help but love him, he was a little scary, a lot sexy but also kind of sweet. Anya was also really great, she didn’t break the mould of a KA heroine, she was sexy but didn’t know it, with a big heart and worked for what she wanted, I like her heroines so this wasn’t a problem for me.

But apart from the hero being a more extreme version of her uber alpha males, this book also differs from her others by the amount and type of sex. It is more explicit and also has an edge of BDSM in the way Knight likes to have complete control. There were no clamps, whips, St Andrew’s Crosses or play rooms, but there was a little spanking and alot of ordering around. And perhaps the most controversial thing that I know alot of people have been talking about, is his title of Daddy when they are having sex. I personally thought this was sexy as hell, just like I think “Sir” and “Master” are, but I know alot of people were put off by it. I say bring it on, Knight can be Daddy anytime he wants!

The only thing I would have liked more of was some action, I kept expecting, a kidnapping/drive by/orphaned children to show up and rock the boat a little, but it didn’t happen, this book very much focused on the relationship between Knight and Anya.

A great book, Ms Ashley has me completed enthralled, I am a hopeless addict, I need a KA fix whenever I can get one!

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).

Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.

And as she keeps growing up, it keeps getting better.

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?

Thanks for the recommendation although I didn’t get to sleep on time last night because of this book. 🙂 Is it just me or does Knight remind you a little bit of Terrible from the Downside Ghosts books? (Only better looking and rich that is!)

Lol! I was the same way mepamelia, I couldn’t out it down. When I was reading it I thought he kind of reminded me of Rehv from BDB, but I can see the Terrible connection as well!

Well…Who’s your Daddy? Knight, of course. I like a good toe curling rating. Yum. This sounds like a keeper.

@ Suzanne: you’re right about the Rehv resemblance. Terrible combined with Rehv? Be still my beating heart!
