Dear Kristen Ashley,
Knight was my first book boyfriend. I was so new to this Indie world of reading…I like most women today found Goodreads after reading the 50 Shades series. I was searching for more to read and stumbled into a group and several people were talking about your latest book Knight. It was only about 2 months old and the thing everybody was talking about was how he loved being called Daddy..GASP! Not really knowing what the big deal was, I picked up Knight and have to tell you I think I 3 starred it. It was not an easy read for me… Knight’s decision to rarely use pronouns drove me nuts, yet there was something so damn captivating about this man to me. I decided that I wanted to get to know Knight a bit better, so I reread it. I became proficient in Knight Speak which totally made me fall in love with him more.
Knight might be the love of my life – yes, I love this man – this fictional character – of all the books I have read he is still my fantasy man. At the time the book came out, Knight seemed to speak to me on a level that Christian or Gabriel or Kellen didn’t. I have no idea what it is about him in general that makes me melt, but I could live forever off lemon drops at Slade and I too would have a closet full of red and jack up at times just to make my man happy. Two years later he still reigns King at the top of my BBF list…and I have since reread Knight a total of 7 times. I know color me crazy….sometimes I just need to remember my main love.
When he appeared in Creed almost immediately I texted my 2 bffs and was like OMG – Knight is fucking back! Then he was really back….not as a ghost but he actually spoke. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would read about my fantasy man again and then page after page there he was….being as dreamy as ever. I could give a shit about his stable of bitches….this man is the bomb. His relationship with Sylvie was heartwarming and once again proved to me that even though he might be a bit shady, but he has a heart of gold. His love for Anya and the girls made me fall harder for him. I was ready for the madness to stop and then this hit – Bottom of my soul. Seriously Kristen –Bottom of my soul. ???? Waiting outside by his Aston Martin, shaking his head for her not to come to him. Driving by and rolling down his window….Bottom of mine, Sylvie. You took the tears I was holding onto desperately and made them flow way more freely than I wanted them to. Then you killed me with the holidays…eating red, white and blue m&m’s. You totally made me into a blubbering mess and you realize I am not even talking about his own book! So yes, Knight is the man. I didn’t think I could love him anymore than I did in Knight, but it grew tenfold in Creed and even when he popped up in Raid.
Kristen….you will always be Queen Mother who gave me my Knight!
