Kristen Ashley--Knight (Unfinished Hero #1)

Genre: Contemporary Romance-erotic

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.

Yes, I am on a Kristen Ashley marathon read. Lot's to catch up on. I had really put off reading this one because I had read some earlier reviews and didn't think I would really like this. Boy was I wrong! Knight is a very dominant alpha male, and after he meets Anya (who is trying to escape a party at his house) he can't stop thinking about her. He slowly starts to take over her life one small thing at a time. First getting her a new phone, getting her building more secure, etc. He slowly but surely takes over her life. But Anya is an independent women, used to taking care of herself, doesn't go into it without a fight. She is not willing to be a "burden" or "mooch" to Knight. She wants to earn her own way, and achieve her own goals in life. But Knight just can't be anything but the dominant controlled man that he is. They slowly become a couple, and Anya gets her way as much as Knight does. She is just more subtle about it. Alot of the earlier reviews said they didn't like Knight's need for Anya to call him "Daddy" while in bed. I admit, it's not my thing, but it doesn't take anything away from the story, I just ignored it. The erotic component is not the strongest I have ever read, Knight is controlling and very much into spanking, but he doesn't go overboard into any other "kink". Lot's of drama surround the couple, which keeps it interesting. But I have to say I am glad I read it. This is not a series where we will continue to read about Anya and Knight, so there story is done, but it's a great love story all the same.....
