Knight (The Unfinished Hero Series) Review

Anya Gage has learned that to get anything good in life, you have to work for it. She has no expectations, no dreams.

Then she finds herself at a party where she doesn’t want to be and she meets Knight.

Knight Sebring knows who he is, what he wants and what he likes. And he gets it. But he never expected something as sweet as Anya Gage to wander into his bedroom during a party he did not expect to be having to borrow his phone.

Knight tries to leave Anya to the life she deserves of white picket fences and a man who watches football on Sundays – good, normal and clean. But when Anya comes to his nightclub and finds herself in a situation, he knows someone has to look after her, he can’t fight it anymore and he decides that man will be him.

Knight teaches Anya that, just as with the bad, in life you should also expect the good. And he teaches her this by giving it to her.

But Knight has a dark past and just as he desires Anya for exactly who she is, he fears when she finds out exactly the man he has become and always intends to be, she’ll leave him for good, normal and clean. 

This was the first of the Unfinished Hero Series and honestly my favorite.  Kristen Ashley took a normal Alpha male and gave him even more edge and questionable morals and made the UHS.  I loved it.  Knight is pretty much as I would imagine him to be.  He is secretive, moody, bossy, dominant and sexy.

Anya is a survivor.  Her parents death was devastating and even though she doesn't remember too much about it, it affected how her life has played out.  This poor girl has had it rough.  An aunt who was cruel because she lost her sister and was left with a kid that she couldn't afford to care for.  A lot of emotional abuse and pain came from just being born into unfortunate circumstances.

Knight is able to give Anya a good life.  Not just physically, because obviously with his lifestyle and career choices he can afford to do that.  But also emotionally.  I think they both benefit from a relationship of trust.  I trust you with my heart and body.  I trust you with my secrets.  Without the trust, this relationship would fail.

When I read a lot of the other reviews for this novel I heard the same thing over and over again.  Why would any normal girl go for a guy like Knight who sells sex, is dominant, and leads a not so clean life.  It's simple.  Very very simple.  You can't help who you fall in love with.

The other two in the UHS are Creed (review coming soon) and Raid (which I already reviewed when it first came out).  I am kind of hoping that Ms. Ashley will give us Marcus Sloan in this series as well.  The bottom line.  To be an Unfinished Hero you have to have a heart of gold even if your actions don't always show that.  Definitely worth a read.

I give this 4 lipsticks!
