Excerpt:Alexander My workout this morning had been punishing. The harder I worked, the harder I worked out. I was a big believer in that if I wasn’t physically fit, I couldn’t perform as well in my job. And I was willing to do whatever I had to do to be the best barrister I could be. As a result, I’d been up since five, worked out until six thirty, and then had a conference call with Dubai at seven. I hated days when I was late into the office, but this morning couldn’t be helped. My commute had been . . . unusual. The woman I’d knocked into while getting off the tube had been beautiful, and I couldn’t keep the image of her gazing up at me in the middle of Lincoln’s Inn Fields out of my brain. I needed to focus. And perhaps get laid when I got the time. But it wouldn’t be tonight. I’d be working. I had hundreds of witness statements to go through and my opening statement to draft. In three days, I’d be in court, and that was my sole focus. There was no time to be wasted on fantasizing about women. As I trawled through my emails, trying to pick out the important ones from the hundreds littering my inbox, someone knocked at my door. I resisted the temptation to growl. I hated being interrupted—I needed a sign for the door. “Come in,” I barked. The door swung open, and I could tell by the footsteps that the head clerk had swooped in. “Mr. Knightley.” “Craig.” I didn’t take my focus off my laptop screen. Craig was an avuncular and charming man in his mid-fifties. He’d been in the business since he was fifteen and had clerked my father. If anyone could interrupt me, he could. And he knew it. Over the years, I’d tried to get him to call me Alex, but he insisted all the clerks and admin staff call the barristers by their surnames. The bar could be a very old-fashioned place. “I want to introduce you to your new assistant, Violet King.” I paused, my fingers hovering over my keyboard. I knew nothing of this and would never have agreed to it—I worked alone. Slowly, I turned to find Craig in front of my desk, his eyebrows raised in expectation. “My what?” I asked. A figure moved in beside him and I slid my gaze to the right. I found myself staring straight at the beautiful woman who’d invaded my thoughts since I’d arrived in chambers. What was going on? I looked away from her, sure that Craig would see my attraction to her if my eyes lingered over her for more than a split second.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
It’s a hit. Author Louise Bay Bestseller here you come. I loved this story from the moment I started my journey on page one, I was hooked.
Now although I would say this book can be read as a standalone. This Author has a theme and several characters continue to make an appearance in each story I have read. I would definitely tell any reader to start with, The King of Wall Street then Park Avenue Prince, and of course let’s not forget Duke of Manhattan. All epically fabulous.
The British Knight just took my breath away. It was fun, sexy and had just the right amount of drama to keep me entertained. Violet King was in desperate need of a change in her life. She thought she was happy knew what she wanted out of life, but her sister Scarlett and her friend Darcy clearly wanted her to take another look.
Violet moved to London not permanently, but just for three months. Try something new, out with the old in with the new and all that jazz.
Mr Knightly Barrister extraordinaire. This man oozed sex appeal. Everything he did was a turn on for Violet. I found myself giggling a few times at her sense of humour. She was the bright light to his dull mundane days. Violet turned Mr Knightly’s world upside down, but at the same time everything she thought and never felt was suddenly the scariest thing in her life.
Two creatures of habit from opposites sides of the world manage to work together perfectly well and form a romantic relationship that neither wanted or expected. Until reality reaches in and steals it all away.
It’s a gripping read that will have you smiling, laughing and with feelings of sadness. Money can't buy you love, it can’t feed you, but it can light up your life with happiness. Once you have felt real love and it’s taken away there is no longer that light.
There’s only one verdict for this book. FIVE STAR READ!
