My Rating: 5 Stars
I am so happy with Knight & Stay. I was hoping that Sophie and Lucien's story would get a wonderful ending, and I am so excited with how it all turned out.
In fact, I have to say I loved everything about this second instalment. Of course we all knew in Knight & Play that Sophie and Lucien were starting to have feelings for each other but it is only now that they are really coming to light. Sophie is still fighting through her guilt over her husband's affair, and Lucien is doing anything he can to talk himself out of having feelings. He comes up with every reason in the book to avoid the big bad L word.
The steam factor is again sky high. In fact, there is one scene that was beyond any kind of sex scene that I have ever read. Like ever. But it has never just been about the sex with these two. From the very beginning you could tell there was more. And by the time we get to the end of their story, there is a deep love and understanding.
There are seriously so many fun parts. Sophie and Lucien decide that they are going to remain colleagues but Sophie institutes a no flirting or touching rule. As if that was ever going to last? Lucien pulls out all of the stops to prove to her that they can remain co-workers while still having some fun together. Then he takes her to Paris, the city of Love... who could resist Lucien at any point in time? But then to throw in Paris? Yeah, I would cave pretty quickly also.
We are also given a beautiful epilogue. I love when authors add these in, it's way to get a glimpse into their future. Yes the happily ever after is important, but we want that solid proof that they are still happy and in love.
These are pretty short books, so a lot of time is not required to read them both. I strongly recommend them to lovers of this genre. The characters are multi-layered and the storyline is intriguing.. it's not all just about the amazing sex. But it helps that there is plenty of it.
