So it's safe to say that my favourite Smith sister is Tawny! She may have been way more broken than Farah but she was much stronger than her too!

Damaged and the Knight is Tawny and Judd's story. Okay firstly I like to mention the title of this this book because it's very aptly named. Obviously when I say Damaged I mean Tawny and the Knight is obviously Judd, but when I think about it now both Tawny and Judd were damaged they both had difficult pasts, they couldn't connect with other people becau
Another great book by Bijou Hunter. I love this author’s writing and characters. I liked this one much better than the first one…only because the first one was so hard to deal with and the issues so deep. Don’t get me wrong, this one was heavy too. But Tawny was such a great heroine and seemed to really be trying to make a better life for herself.

Boy, was I pissed for a minute at Judd in the beginning. But he turned around and became a wonderful hero. I think they both needed each other and help

Good Lord this author did it again!!!!!

All i want to say is that officially

Took me a bit to get into the book. When I did I couldn't put it down.

I love the romantic anti-hero, the hottie who starts out bad but is redeemed, or blindsided by love and winds up a hero almost in spite of himself. Villains don’t get redeemed, but the anti-hero makes you love him, or at least lust for him, and hot means anti-hero, not villain, right?

Oh, how I LOVE Judd O'Keefe!!! He is the perfect anti-hero, alpha, po

I don't even know where to start with this book. I expected something much better than what i got...
SOO the heroine is a victim of sexual abuse. WHY ARE ALL THE WOMEN VICTIMS? AND WHY DO THEY NEED A MAN JUST TO FEEL BETTER ABOUT THEMSELVES? It's sick. This is the 21st century,guys! Woman can get get jobs now and wear trousers and :0(OMG)VOTE!
Some amazing news... BUT SOME WOMEN ARE EVEN PEOPLES BOSSES... i mean like.. WTF?!

Ok first I'm going to fangirl over Bijou Hunter for a minute. Things I can always expect to get from a Bijou Hunter read:
1. A hero that loves his woman to distraction. No other will do once he sets eyes on her.
2. Laugh out loud moments.
3. An amazing cast of secondary characters that add so much to the story.
4. People damaged or living a hard life in some way that find exactly what they need for a good life.
5. An absolutely amazing epilogue years into the future with marriage and babies.

I couldn't finish...but what I did read rated poorly.

slight spoilers ahead

So, here we have this heroine who was raped/assaulted in her past. She gets rescued by the hero aka her knight in shining armor. She immediately starts throwing herself at him after just meeting him, she does ALL the chasing even though he is bit of an ass. You would think that after all the girl has been through that she wouldn't be so comfortable with such a bad ass man...but nope. She wants him and wants him bad. From t
3.5 Stars

I liked this one soooo much better than the first one! Judd was definatley swoon worthy. I liked Tawny but at times she really ticked me off. Now there was sex in this one but it wasn't writted a dirty as I like and the sex scenes were really short but there was a lot of them so I guess this will do. I think I will eventually read the whole series. The authors writing was so much better this time around so I believe with every book in the series she will get better and better.

I loved this book, this book and Bijou Hunter blew me away. I loved Damaged and the Beast and Hunter's writing style so I have been anxiously anticipating Tawny's book and was so excited to see Damaged and the Knight had been released. I bought this the second I saw it was finally available and started it right after, wow wow wow. What an awesome book this is, I never wanted to put this book down but I never wanted to finish it either. I love reading and I'm always in a state of either reading o ...more
Bijou Hunter…why am I just now finding you? After reading Damaged and the Beast, and loving it, I immediately downloaded Damaged and the Knight. Sometimes I lower my expectations a bit for a second book. I can’t tell you how many times I have loved the first book in a series only to find the next books to be somewhat lacking. So glad to say, this was not the case.

This story continues on from book one. While it could be read as a stand-alone I recommend reading book one first as a lot of the bac

I love it when I find a new author and series. I loved Judd the Stud, even though he was a scary bad ass! His story just worked, almost as good as Coop the Poop's!!! I can't wait to read the next one.

This was a great book of you like NA. This book was less drama llama than the last book so there's that. I'm grumpy and get annoyed at immature heroines, so ignore me. 😜

The h in this book is the younger sister of the h in Book 1. Both of them were raped repeatedly (held for about a week) by a group of bikers when they were younger (h was only 12). As you can imagine, h has loads of issues because of this. There is Insta love that was kinda sweet but the h was barely 18 and it showed. H was mid-t

I have to say LOVED this more then Cooper and Farah's story! Judd he makes a big first impression being all alpha when we first meet him, "are you opening the door or do I need to kick the effing thing in?" He's a really intense person, "I know enough to be sure if I blew this effer's head off, you'd dump him in a ditch somewhere instead of calling the cops. Now, either I'm dropping all four of you or I let you walk away. How loyal are you effs?" He's not one to really be affectionate, "kid, I d ...more

Totally loved it! Tawny was freakin hilarious! Of course she had her insecure moments, but I thought she rocked! Judd was a stud but I must say I loved Tawny more. The interactions between Judd and his friends also kept me entertained.

Am I the only one who thought this deserved one star?

What is wrong with this chick she is way off the rocker

Give this bitch some Prozac .. She was making me depressed
Wow! This book gripped me. I really felt all the angst. Judd (H) and Tawny (h) were a great couple. Both were damaged but still trying to survive. I loved how they finally got together.

Damaged and the Knight ("Knight") is the second in Bijou Hunter's "Damaged" series and it picks up right after the first volume, Damaged and the Beast ("Beast") ends. Though the author has tried to give enough information to have the book work as a stand-alone non-cliffy story, I would highly recommend reading the first volume in the series. After all, the main character in "Knight" is the little sister of the main character in "Beast." I think it is imperative to get more of the background stor ...more
Tawny Smith would rather starve to death than face what is waiting for her if she leaves her hotel room. Her father abandoned her for a debt and it is no sweat off his back if she is the pay off. When she is rescued by Judd O'Keefe she sees something similar to the haunting emptiness she feels inside, she sees a goodness that he doesn't even recognize.

Judd is not a good man, he is the man you call when you need someone dead. He has had a life of horrific events and believes he is defective by as

The 2nd installment to this series blew me away.

My only complaint (before I get to the good stuff) is that Tawny falls for Judd way too fast. Like 1st chapter kinda fast. Other than that I loved this book.

Two damaged hearts learn to love and trust. Loved Judd's character. Rough, tough, tatted, buff, mmmm... Everything a woman loves, ESP that deep sweet heart inside. Tawny learns to grow up just a bit and never loses heart. Their love shined through all the tough spots.

MC reads are my favorite. I love the guys that are full male badasses on the outside but are sweet as candy on the inside.
The sisters amazed me. Going from only having each other to having a family with the badasses. I loved seeing more into Farah and Coopers relationship. It was amazing. I loved watching Tawny's insecurity dwindle down because of Judd. I felt really bad for Outlaw... i just wanted to jump in the story and cuddle him! I really like how Tawny and Bailey got close. Almost pissed
I liked this more than Damaged and the Beast.

1. Because without getting too personal Tawny and I have similar issues.

2.I also felt like she was a stronger character. No necessarily mentally or physically but because Bijou's writing style was better this time around. And finally...

3. Because she made me fall in love with Bailey. Whom I also share similar issues with and they finally come to light rather than her just looking like a vapid, selfish bitch.

Overall I loved it and can't wait for Aaron

Three 1/2 Stars.

I enjoyed this story, although I think I enjoyed the complementary characters a bit more than the 2 main. It was enjoyable catching up with Farah and Cooper in this one, and Bailey's antics cracked me up. It was a nice change seeing her try to be human for a change, and funny as hell too. Tawny beating herself up throughout the story got a little old by the end of this story, but I totally enjoyed seeing the end results of the baddies in this story. Very satisfying.

This book was provided by Bijou Hunter in exchange for an honest review

Damaged and the Knight picks up where Tawny, Farah’s younger sister, is locked in a hotel room waiting for Cooper to send someone to save her from the horrible fate her father promises. To play catch up a little, Farah and Tawny’s parents are the lowest of low when it comes to parenting. They've done everything from stealing, drugging, drinking,

Loved it! Tawny was badass and Judd was a truly the alpha male biker. This book had it all, drama, laughs and pulled at your heartstrings. I read this book in a day, I couldn't put it down. I loved that the players from damaged by the beast made an appearance while introducing you to others for upcoming books. Can't wait to continue the series.

Awesome I loved this! Loved judd and Tawny loved the romance the angst the suspense the secondary characters the banter all of it! I also like that from the beginning tawny knew she wanted judd and went for it the was no unnecessary drama. Just real emotional hangups that they worked through together.

I hate how the protagonist speaks. She sounds like an unintelligible 8 year old. Another thing i dislike about the book is that she gets saved by a guy named jude from potential rape. Not long after shes lusting after him, just the sequence of events seem too fast paced

“When I’m with you, I feel like a different kind of man. I feel better than I’ve ever felt, but a man with all that good in his heart can’t do what needs to be done. So I returned to the man who doesn’t feel. I know I hurt you by doing that, but it was what needed to be done for me to survive. What I do for Cooper is about making people bleed before they do the same to us. That kind of job won’t allow for mistakes just cause my heart belongs to a beautiful angel.” 15 likes
