Skye Warren is a genius. Pure and simple.
The Knight, the second installment of the Endgame Series is even better than The Pawn. It picks up right where the first book leaves off. I was eager to dive head-first into this one, and in this novel ingénue Avery St. James and criminal mastermind Gabriel Miller’s journey deepens as they continue to walk the thin line between love and hate.
The Knight is fabulously hard-core, ridiculously sexy, and just plain scrumptious in its overall delivery. This book has everything that you crave in a dark romance: a sexy hero, ridiculously hot sex scenes, a well-developed plot and amazing secondary characters! That alone makes this title worth every single penny that you will spend on it.
Allow me to elaborate as I get down to the nitty gritty. The Knight is deliciously dirty and has a swoon-worthy male lead with a foul, obscenely seductive mouth that makes this novel appealing in the extreme. In spite of Gabriel’s brusque nature and cruel actions, there is so much more to him than meets the eye. It was a joy to come along for the ride as Skye Warren peels back his layers one by one, exposing the reason for his cold, ruthless behavior.
At this point I have a sweet tooth for Gabriel Miller, and I have no problem admitting to it!!! He is possessive, he is formidable and magnificent in his power. At the same time, his feelings for Avery bring him to his knees, and the way that Skye Warren unveils his feelings nearly made me roll out of my seat!!
“I can’t seem to let you go…A lifetime of discipline and now I am a fucking addict.” ~Gabriel
“Neither of us can escape. Neither of us wants to.” ~Avery
As far as the heroine is concerned, I adored Avery’s strength in the face of adversity. She is a powerhouse in her own right, with a tenacity and boldness that made me fall in love with her character. Those qualities, coupled with her loyalty, innocence and determination to make her own way as she copes with Gabriel’s demons inspired a deep-seeded sense of respect and admiration in me for her character.
Like Belle in the celebrated Disney film, Avery is drawn to and falls for the inherent beauty in her beast, and I loved her for it.
“Everything has a cost. And when it comes to Gabriel Miller, the cost is always too high.” ~Avery
“That’s the thing about a knight whose armor shines… It’s never been in battle. Never been tested. Tarnished black armor like Gabriel’s-that’s where strength lies. “~Avery
There is also a sense of mystery, a conspiratorial, suspense-laden puzzle concerning Avery’s family history that creates a unique twist to this love story. Skye Warren is a ringmaster, and she has expertly orchestrated a circus filled with secrets, lies, deceit and toe-curling passion that will keep you wide-eyed and breathless!!!!
There is *nothing* not to love about The Knight.
I am owned, I am addicted and I am RUINED!!!!! The Endgame Series is a drug, and now that I have had a taste, I simply cannot get enough!
Bring it on Skye Warren!!!!! I am waiting with bated breath for The Castle! It is like I am on pins and needles, desperately counting down the days until I get my hands on what is sure to be an epic conclusion to Skye Warren’s latest piece of brilliance!!!
