Knight & Play (Knight, #1) 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 & Sophie meet, the seal is set.
Romantic, emotional & intensely erotic, Knight and Play is the perfect read for lovers of international bestsellers Fifty Shades & Bared To You. Let yourself be swept away by Part One of the Knight series from Kitty French, a romance so hot it'll burn your fingers...
CEO of Knight Inc. Lucien Knight is catch-your-breath gorgeous and damaged by his troubled past in Norway. All grown up and relocated to London, he's built his empire of adult clubs from the ground up to become the gorgeous patron saint of the sex industry. No one knows the dark childhood secrets that have given Lucien a backbone of steel and a heart encased in ice. No one until Sophie Black, that is...
From the moment girl-next-door Sophie accepts the job as Lucien Knight's PA, she understands how Alice must have felt when she tumbled down the rabbit hole. Lucien takes her safe, vanilla life away and plunges her head first into a huge dish of fantasy flavours. Rich, spicy chocolate covered with dark, oozingly lickable sauce? Check. Tutti-frutti with indecently red, glistening cherries on the top? Yes please.Lucien strips away all of Sophie's inhibitions, and when he instructs her to select three new toys, she soon realises he has more than a game of Monopoly on his mind...
He's opened the door to a whole new pleasure packed world without limits, and Sophie is utterly intoxicated. But how far is she willing to go? And what happens when she has to step back into reality again?
Lucien & Sophie's is a story of star crossed love and forbidden passion, a sexual odyssey that spans the globe and changes both of their lives forever. Let it change yours, too.

Whoa! This book takes the reader on one hell of a ride on the guilty-pleasure train. This book is STEAMING!
Lucien Knight needs to come with a health warning, because I swear to all that is unholy, he made me go completely GAGA! Okay, so the synopsis pretty much covers every detail of this short novel, so as far as plots and storylines go, it fell a little on the short side, but guess what: I. DON'T. CARE!
Knight & Play is erotica escapism at its very finest in my opinion. Okay, so I couldn't read this genre all the time because the repetitive sex-scenes can get a little samey, but in this instance, all I can say is WOW, Kitty French is ONE HOT MOMMA who knows her industry (I just want to know how many times she had to 'test-drive' certain items to get it just right!) :P
I do have a favourite scene, and it involves a mirror that just rendered me bug-eyed and speechless. It was vivid, explicit and undeniably beautiful. Lucien Knight has SKILLS, ladies! I was putty I tell you... PUTTY!!!
So, the sex is good, great actually, but what about the rest? Well, if you are adverse to cheating then this book may not be for you. The term 'two wrongs don't make a right' springs to mind, however, in this instance I feel it worked well in the story. Like I said... 'guilty-pleasure.'
Knight and Play is super hot, accompanied with a side order of toe curling, heart fluttering, steamy romance that will leave you a little hot under the collar. Lucian Knight: the all alpha who gives the creme de la creme a true run for their money - gorgeous, honest, sinful sexuality wrapped in Nordic yummy goodness... I want one!!!
Oh and the heroine is likeable too, regardless of her little 'fling,' I enjoyed witnessing her transition from bored, sexually deprived housewife to wanton sex goddess all in the matter of a week. High-five, Princess!
