Knight’s Mistress (The Knight Trilogy 1) – CC Gibbs

What they say:

Katherine Hart is thrilled to be recruited by Knight Enterprises, the most prestigious venture-capital company in the world. That is, until she makes the acquaintance of the company’s infamous CEO, Dominic Knight.

At thirty-two, Dominic is a self-made billionaire with a fearsome ambition and a temper to match. He is also impossibly attractive and dangerously charming when he wants to be.

To Kate, Dominic seems like the perfect predator, and she resolves to be cautious despite the obvious chemistry between them, telling herself she can always leave if Dominic grows too demanding. What she doesn’t know is that the decision isn’t hers to make… Dominic Knight has found a new plaything, and Mr. Knight always gets what he wants.

What we say – review by Elizabeth A Wright:

Now, I’m in two minds about this book. On the one hand, I’m sure it is not meant to be taken seriously or for anyone to read too much into it, after all erotica is supposed to be a little naughty fun. But on the other hand, some aspects of it really made me mad.

At times it is a sweet love story, and others a heated adventure, but then there are the moments that make my proud inner feminist stand up and scream! The words “You must learn obedience. You’re much too independent.” should sum this up for you. I’d certainly only recommend it for those with an open mind, and those who love nothing more than a man to take control in the bedroom. The raunchier moments are fairly tame in comparison to what is out there, in the big bad world, but it is the mind games that will either turn you on or turn you off – we have a definite marmite situation here.

Written with lovers of 50 Shades of Grey in mind – the similarities are endless – this is just the first in the three part series (the other 2 reviews will follow, have no fear). I had trouble liking Dominic and Katherine, which certainly pulled me back from the action, but perhaps I am asking too much from the book. However, CC Gibbs certainly conjures up images of two extremely beautiful people and seems to have an endless vocabulary when it comes to the x-rated scenes. Dominic and Katherine have undeniable chemistry, but his desire to control her, at times violently, and baby her made me pull back from the story. If the thought of a sexy, successful man drawing you into a world of excess and completely taking care of you turns you on, then this could be the ideal read for you. I’m looking forward to finding out how the story ends for these two complicated lovers, but while the complex mind games and power balance does fascinate me, unfortunately the heat doesn’t leave the page for me.

 

Knight’s Game (The Knight Trilogy 2) – CC Gibbs51RXDFgbtNL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_

When her tryst with handsome billionaire Dominic Knight gets out of hand, Katherine Hart resolves to cut all contact for good. But Dominic won’t let his object of fascination escape so easily: when they cross paths in a plush hotel in Singapore, their steamy affair is reignited.

But can such exquisite pleasure last?

Kate knows her lover is a man who lives entirely for the chase. Is this reunion a rushing climax before an inevitable fall, or could Kate possess the keys to finally taming the untamable Dominic Knight?

What we say – review by Elizabeth A Wright:

This second book in the trilogy follows a very similar format as the first: A brief spout of ‘will they, won’t they’, followed by a lot of multiple orgasms and sex in all its various forms, followed by a bit of drama and emotion. If you enjoyed the first you will enjoy the second, but for me once again it just seems like a poor imitation of 50 Shades of Grey… which I also didn’t enjoy.

The plot is definitely secondary to the raunchier side of things, but even that became monotonous very quickly. The discussion of multiple orgasms and the use of them almost as a form of currency had me rolling my eyes in no time. I don’t know many women (only 1 in fact!) who can follow in Katherine’s footsteps in this department, so surely the constant stream of orgasms would annoy readers who cannot achieve the same? But, as I said in the review of the first book in the trilogy, this is definitely a marmite situation.

What they say:

The breathtaking final instalment of the Knight trilogy has arrived.
Katherine Hart has come a long way from the day she accepted a position as codebreaker for Knight Enterprises, glittering domain of playboy CEO Dominic Knight. With his wicked reputation, nobody could have imagined Dominic Knight sated by just one woman… until green-eyed Katherine captured his sole fascination, and stirred his fiercest desire. Now, newly pregnant with his child, Kate has never been so pampered, nor so very, very satisfied. But when tragedy strikes and Kate and Dominic are forced to reassess, the lovers must ask themselves if such pleasure is ultimately worth the pain.

What we say – review by Elizabeth A Wright:

I gave The Knight Trilogy one last chance and dipped into this last book in the series, but all too often I found myself bored. Perhaps if the whole story from all three books had been condensed into just 1 book it might have been a little more interesting. However, it really depends what you are looking for. If their sexual relationship is at the forefront for you then this series might just be right up your street. And certainly, if you enjoyed the first 2 books then it would be a shame not to dip your toe into this one, but for me it was neither engaging nor titillating.
