Series: Unfinished Hero #1
Published by Self Published
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!

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?
