★★★★1/2! Knight & Stay, book 2 of 2. The conclusion of Lucien’s & Sophie’s whirlwind romance where they are faced with the aftermath of their affair, but still not quite ready to give it all up.

“…she was Sophie Black, the girl who surprised him. He'd never met anyone quite like her before. On first glance she was quiet and unassuming, but scratch the surface and she was spectacular.”

If the first of this series was the prelude, then 'knight & stay' is the main event ~ Romance, True love, Finding your heart, scrumptious sexual encounters, Lucien, Lucien and more Lucien ...

Did I mention Lucien? ... Mr knight was dangerously addictive in 'knight & play' and in this tasty follow up to the story, I more than got my fix.


Straight off the bat 'knight &stay' takes us directly into the drama left behind from book one. As readers of this series are well aware

Oh how I have waited for Lucien Knight to reappear. Ever since I read that last page of Knight & Play where Dan opened that door and he was standing there...I wanted needed craved more.

Knight & Stay starts off just where book one leaves off. Sophie has a choice to make, although by Lucien's sudden appearance he may have just taken that choice away. Face to face with her cheating husband and the lover that has taught her more things about her own body in just a matter of days - Soph

Knight & Stay was a book I jumped right into after reading Knight & Play. The first book ends in a bit of a cliffy and I was left desperate to find out what happens between Lucien Knight and Sophie Black.

Sophie is home and ready to confront Dan. She has to decide what she wants to do, or better yet who she wants. I think the choice was pretty simple…

I love Lucien Knight! There really isn’t a choice between him and Dan- it’s a given. But as much as I loved Lucien in this

I could not wait to start this one after finishing the first in this series …. I loved the first one and all the reviews pointed out that this one was even better. It started just where the first finished….. Won’t go into too much detail in my review as I am sure I drove some people daft with all my updates today. This proves how much I love a book if I take the time off from reading to update my status. It was getting a bit out of control there for a while. We had the delicious Lucien and the s

OMG. I freaking loved this book. It was TWICE the book Knight and Play was. Devoured it. I'm sad the saga is over. Literally, everything that fell short on Knight and Play for me, was improved tenfold in this book. We had all the elements that I crave for a five star review.....drama, angst, tension, chemistry, heat (omg heat), anticipation! Could not put the thing down.

Sophie Black returns home after her whirlwind affair and kicks her cheating husband out.

Now she officially has lost it all, the marriage she put so much into is over.
But Sophie is okay with that, because of Lucien...

The continued story of Lucien Knight and Sophie Black. Knight and Play ended with a pretty big cliffhanger and Knight and Stay picks right up where it left off. The plain fact was that this thing between them wasn't just basic chemistry. It was lethal, combustible dynamite, and it was only going to be made ten times more difficu

"Lucien was a whole lot of trouble because he made her want things she couldn't possibly have. He made ordinary life feel pale and insipid, a watered-down version of the existence she'd tasted that had him in it."

This was very similar to book one, Knight and Play, except that there is a more intense undertone to this. It picks up right after the first book left off, with a mini showdown between everyone involved. I thought it was great for Lucien to have some insecurities for once. Quite pos

"I've got you, princess. I've got you."

Shouldn’t you be mourning the end of your marriage more than the end of a one-week deal? Doesn’t make any sense, right? But as sad as it is to admit it, it’s true, whatever spell Lucien put over her, there seems to be no cure for. Lost in the memories of the pleasure he made her feel, she is trying to pick up the pieces and move on but Lucien is not willing to let her go even if he doesn’t know what he wants with Sophie.

Free from the relentless crushing guilt of Knight & Play, Book Two in the Knight Trilogy surpasses its predecessor and delivers a more beautiful and thorough exploration of Lucien & Sophie.

Even if Knight & Play fell short for you (which it did for a lot of us) I recommend reading Knight & Stay. They should be sold in a 2-Pack bundle, because you almost need all the back story in book two to enjoy and appreciate anything that happens in Book One… Not to mention the whole cliff-hanger thing...

Having read book 1 of this series – Knight & Play, I thought I knew exactly what to expect going in – SMUT. And yep, I got it! But what I didn’t expect was a deeply emotional book that broke my heart and left me swooning with a huge, ridiculous grin on my face.

The book starts off by revisiting the epic ending to the last book, as our heroine, Sophie's life implodes on her. It then picks up a week later just as she decides to scrape herself off the couch and piece her life back together. Althoug

I have to say this one was much better than the first book. Things begin to unravel in Knight & Play and we see the fallout in all its glory in Knight & Stay.

Sophie finds herself unwilling to return to her position at Knight Inc. She returns to her old job only to find that her old boss is making passes at her. With nowhere else to turn she goes back to Lucien and asks for her job back. But there are rules. No touching, no flirting, no kissing, you get the idea. But how long can she stick to he

I hate to even write this, because I'm really afraid I've lost any ability I had ( and I swear I used to have a lot!) to overlook small issues a just enjoy a f*cking story!

Things I liked:
-Lucian. Still amazing. Still love him to pieces.
-Sophie (and this was a pleasant surprise) She was seriously kick ass in this book. She grew some big balls, and didn't let anyone, including Lucian stand in the way of her HEA.
-the epilogue. I needed that reassurance in a big way.

Gitte: So I enjoyed book #1 Knight & Play….but I loved Knight & Stay even more. The issues I had with the previous book were null and void in this one. It was great, the storyline was that much more detailed and substantial, the emotion was intense and the characters really came into their own, we were given an in-depth look into who they really were behind the façade, especially Lucien. This one starts off exactly where we left of…as it were…dangling o

Prior to starting this book, I was in a horrible book funk...I had the worst book hangover. I must have started (or attempted to start) at least 12 different books. None of them caught my interest and I ended up dropping them within a few pages. But finally, I thought of this book and decided to give it a try. And low and behold, this caught my attention and before I knew it, I was 15% into the book.

As much as I was looking forward to this, I was also disappointed in it. I still loved Lucien. H

The next one was worse.

Firstly, her husband really didn't care or fight all that much. Instead he tried to make it work for a few hours -before going home to his mistress & baby mama.

Sophie became desperate for Lucien when he laid down the rules: this thing has run its course and I don't love you. She does the whole I'll seduce you/you can't resist me/you must love me. He takes her up on it, and still leaves.

"He left her then, feeling more heartsick and lonely than she'd ever dreamed it was p

A lovely way to end a series! I felt that the resolution was a tiny bit quick, but I still loved it anyways. The drama from the first book continues in the beginning of the second novel. Frustration, jealousy, confusion, anger, sadness, and (of course) love appears throughout the novel repeatedly so make sure you're buckled in during this emotional roller coaster ride.

One thing Kitty French never fails to do is provide us with steamy sex scenes. I swear Lucien

Oh Lucien Knight how I love you….this is the second and final part of Kitty French’s series the first being Knight & Play.

This book starts where Knight & Play finished, after they returned from Norway and confronted Sophie’s husband about his 3 year long affair. Lucien leaves at Sophie’s request whilst she and Dan sort out their train wreck of a marriage.

Sophie feels somewhat guilty of the fact that she had “cheated” on Dan by being with Lucien in Norway even though he had been chea

There wasnt a lot going on in book 1 besides the hot sex. This sequel however we experience the change in Lucien and Sophie's relationship.

I knew little about Lucien until the second half of the book and even by then I still felt like there is still more to know. Sophie has grown a lot from the blushing girl in book 1 to the confident woman she has become and I grew to love her.
