Knight. Party monster. Handsome Savage. Doesn’t do monogamy
Elliot. Obsessive. Intense. Uncompromising.
Newly single, Knight is done with relationships. All he’s interested in is bringing down The Count, an Internet personality who is tarnishing his family name. An opportunity to crush him comes when the audacious clown shows up at the Kings of Hell MC clubhouse to film for his YouTube channel. But when Knight meets Elliot, the man behind The Count, he no longer knows what to do with him.
Knight has never seen a more pathetic creature than Elliot. He’s also never met anyone who needed him more. Skinny, messed up, and a bucket of trouble as thick as tar, everything Elliot does seems to be a wordless death wish. No matter how much Knight hates Elliot’s alter ego, under the makeup and theatrics hides a fragile young guy with a passion for history, and Knight can’t help but catch Elliot every time he falls.
Elliot has bad taste in men. Always hopelessly attracted to violent brutes, his favorite is a long dead serial killer. But he gets more than he’s bargained for when he seizes an opportunity to meet the man of his dreams. The ghost is manipulative and dangerous, offering Elliot all he’s always wanted, for a price he can’t possibly pay.
Elliot is faced with an impossible choice between two men.
One alive, one dead.
One carnal and honest, one drizzling sweet, poisoned promises into his ear.
One unwilling to commit, the other promising an eternity together.
And Elliot doesn’t settle for half-measures. He craves a love that is all or nothing, passion that will consume him, and desire to burn him alive.
Elliot is ready to either get that, or die trying.
Point of view:
3rd person. Alternating perspectives between Knight & Elliot
Note: These books do not stand alone. While each book follows the relationship of one couple, there’s a storyline threaded throughout all of them. They need to be listened to in order starting with Laurent and the Beast. Also, reviews may contain spoilers to previous books.
Very seldom do authors create a character that I dislike as much as I disliked Elliot and manage to redeem him by the end of the book.
I was already half in love with Knight from the last book. He was so supportive of Beast and Laurent, had a very chill attitude, etc. So I was not happy when he was paired with a serial-killer-loving online nemesis.
It was a long and twisty road to get there, but these two ended up being perfect for each other. However – they have to fight through a ghost as evil as the Devil that inhabits the club house. This was incredibly creepy (in a good way!) and emotionally fraught.
Ready for Jake’s book, On Your Knees, Prospect.
Joel Leslie was amazing. The cast is huge and he does a terrific job of giving them all unique voices and personalities. Plus, keeping them consistent from the last book. The emotional scenes had me in tears. So good.
