Knight and Play by Kitty French
There's only one thing in life Lucien Knight really hates, and that's husbands who cheat on their wives.
There's only one problem in Sophie Black's life. Her cheating husband...
From the moment Lucien and Sophie meet, the seal is set.
Sophie Black is at a junction in her material life, she doesn't know whether to turn left or right and she certainly doesn't know what's happening. With her husband gone most of the time on business, but with a slight inkling that he's away for a little more than meetings and more for pleasure, Sophie doesn't know which way to turn.
But when she decides to take the chance of leaving her old job, a job from an older man with wondering hands, Sophie soon confronts her best friend's mind on what she should do. But when she tells her to go for it, what has she got to loose, Sophie is all for it.
Kissing envelopes and dressing rather sexy for her interview with Knight Inc. Sophie soon finds herself in a whole new world, one where she's definitely not in Kansas or with Toto.
Lucien Knight is a highly sophisticated business man, making a living from his adult clubs around the UK and his sex toy industry, who wouldn't be successful in such a market? His blond hair and piercing blue eyes could scorch anyone with the passion that he holds in them, and his height and other regions would be a bit of a competition. No one can knock him from his feet and walk all over him, that is, until Ms.Black walks through his office door and changes everything.
From her small statue and long flowing hair, Lucien can see under that fragile skin of hers that there is a better, beautiful woman waiting to get out and play. He just needs to get her attention away from her husband to prove and show it to her. So when things start to get steamy in his office, he might be en route to showing her what she is really made of, and they beauty that lies within her.
With a trip to Norway, a fumble in the woods and a husband that needs to learn his place in their relationship. Who will Sophie choose?
Knight and Play by Kitty French, is the first novel in the Knight erotic trilogy, spanned over two books, there is a third but it's more based on another couple - a bit like the Sole Regret erotic series (Which you can read the first review here ---> Try Me Review.
But anyway, this is the first novel out of the other books and I must say I rather liked it. I started to read 50 Shades of Grey last year or before but I just couldn't do it. My friend was telling me to wait till chapter ten and I hadn't even finished one chapter! I couldn't read it because I found the writing skills very poor and it just didn't have a story line based around it, it was just soft porn. You might as well have watched it online is all I'm saying and the woman character just annoyed me.
I mostly couldn't read it down to the poor writing skills and I couldn't understand why everyone thought it was amazing! But - That's just me haha. I really did try to read it so I could write a book review for it on how I felt but I couldn't put myself through it, I felt like I was watching paint dry and it felt like torture.
But! On the other hand, I really did enjoy Knight and Play, after reading Kitty / Kat French's romance novel - Book review located here --> Undertaking Love Review,
I went in search to find more books by the author and found these little beauties!
The book is based around three characters, mainly focusing on Sophie Black and Lucien Knight. For me Lucien is quite a sexy name. Knight first meets Sophie when she is looking for another job and her friend forces her to go and seek out a job with Knight Inc. But little did Sophie know that it was a business in the sex industry.
In places I felt that Sophie was a little bit prudish, with not knowing what anything was and thought that she should stop being a snob in some places, but then it all started to change. I also think on the whole cheating thing with her husband was, well...
Her husband is having an affair with some other woman, and she ends up sleeping with Lucien. I can see from peoples points of view that it is just as bad, but then that annoys me a little for the fact that "Well he did it and didn't give a toss, so why should she sit and wait for him if he's been unfaithful" But then some people are all "Thou shall not do, what it is done upon to others" Or something or other, and to me not being religious anyway, I just think that's a pile of nonsense.
It would be the same it it we're the other way round for me, so I'm not saying that cause she's a woman she should "wait" for her man. If she did it and it was her husband who didn't cheat I would say he can do the same! If they clearly don't love each other anymore, then what is the point in them staying in a relationship, just for the sole purpose because you have a piece of metal around your finger?
I didn't think there was anything wrong with the way Sophie was being, I agree on some level that she probably shouldn't of just let Lucien grope her straight away but each to their own! All in all I did enjoy the story, I feel there was romance in some part, as well as just pure lust. There was drama and there was a story line that was based around Lucien which hasn't come out yet which makes it a bit more secretive into what will happen in the next book.
I will give this book 7.5 out of 10
