The British Knight by Louise Bay
Release Date: December 5th
Genre: Contemporary Romance
When I’m offered the chance to leave New York to live in London for three months, I can’t pack my suitcase fast enough. As soon as I touch down I’m obsessing over red telephone boxes, palaces and all the black cabs. But my favorite place is the tube. It’s wall-to-wall hot British men in suits. When I’m offered a temporary job working for a barrister, I say, sign me up. On my first commute into work, it’s a total accident when I lose my balance and fall against the most handsome Brit alive. He’s as charming as James Bond and as suave as Mr. Darcy. I want to lick tea from his hard abs and listen to his accent all night long. Turns out Mr. Handsome is my new boss. And his attitude isn’t as hot as his gorgeous face, broad shoulders and tight ass. He’s brooding, short-tempered and the most arrogant man I’ve ever met. As we’re fighting, out of nowhere he kisses me. And I’m pretty sure I see fireworks over Big Ben and hear God Save the Queen. I wasn’t looking for the fairytale but I might have found my knight in shining armor. The problem is he lives an ocean away. A stand-alone, contemporary romance.
This is my first time reading a Louise Bay novel and I was quite excited because I've heard so many good things about her within the romance community. The story takes place in London, where Violet King finds herself attempting to make a new and fresh start of things. With an MIT background and a strong successful future ahead, things get turned completely upside down when the man she started a company with and planned to spend the rest of her life with ends up cheating on her and stealing from her and starting the company on his own. She finds herself getting a 3-month contract as an assistant to to a lawyer named Alex Knightley. He is charming, handsome, but also a complete control freak. They are obviously attracted to one another and after a couple heated moments, they obviously give into the passion. I really liked how they didn't continue on simply just being together after sex for sex. They made a real go at attempting a relationship. They were some complications with Alex's past, but you got to see them really become friends and then lovers in the process and I really loved that. There were so many cute moments in the book like the picnic outside and the house hunting process. Their story was quite sweet and I loved how they went toe to toe with one another and they were equals the entire time. Overall, I really liked this book and it definitely reminded me of some Christina Lauren titles, so that to me is high praise!
