The power of pleasure…

Gabriel Miller took everything from me. My family. My innocence. My home. The only thing I have left is the determination to get back what’s mine.

He thinks he’s beaten me. He thinks he’s won. What he doesn’t realize is that every pawn has the chance to become a queen.

And the game has only just begun.

 

 

The Knight picks up right where The Pawn left off. Avery is living in a shady motel trying to figure out how her life ended up like this. She’s determined to buy back her family’s house and discover the truth behind her father and deceased mother. However, what she finds only leads to more uncertainty and questions instead of answers.

In this installment we see a softer side to Gabriel. I’m so glad that Gabriel finally stopped fighting himself. It’s as if he views himself as the bad guy and tries to play the part in order to keep Avery at arms length. However, if you look at his actions closely, you can tell that he really cares for Avery. The author lays a doozie on us about Gabriel and Avery’s combined past, though. Heck, even Gabriel’s upbringing as a young boy was a little hard to swallow.

One thing that bothered me though was Avery. She’s just so naive. Gabriel has always looked out for her, defied people for her, and has struggled with himself over her… and yet she still thinks he’s the devil reincarnate. Meanwhile, she dotes on her “daddy” like she didn’t just find out what her father tried to do to her before his downfall. Really? Not to mention all the shady stuff he was doing in the depths of the elite underground world. I get that he’s your father and all, but it was annoying to see her continuously go back to her father but yet still push Gabriel away.

So far this series has been one dark, twisted adventure. Just when you start to get your bearings, the author throws another curve ball at you. It’s not just about a dark romance between Avery and Gabriel. There’s also a bit of mystery and suspense behind certain things that go on throughout the book. Was Avery’s mother’s death really just an accident or was she killed? If so, is it the same person who is currently terrorizing Avery? Who can Avery really trust? While Gabriel and Avery seem to finally be on the same level, there are still a lot of things going on around them. Truths that I feel like may jeopardize the common ground they finally found.
