The power of pleasure...

Gabriel Miller took everything from me. My family. My innocence. My home. The only thing I have left is the determination to get back what's mine.

He thinks he's beaten me. He thinks he's won. What he doesn't realize is that every pawn has the chance to become a queen.

And the game has only just begun.

I don't think I have ever been so crazed over a series like I have been with Skye Warren's Endgame series. This series is legit mind blowing. I fell in love with The Pawn late last year and could not wait for The Knight. I needed more of Avery and Gabriel stat! Their explosive chemistry in combination with the suspense makes this one of my favorite series EVER.

The book picks up right at the cliffhanger in book one. For all intents and purposes, Avery has hit rock bottom. After leaving Gabriel af

The story picks up with Avery living at a cheap motel in the worst part of town, the only place she can afford on her limited means, after the end The Pawn. Desperate to make amends and get a semblance of her old life back, she will walk deeper into a maze of lies and secrets surrounding her family and will come to discover that the only person she can really trust is Gabriel Miller, the man responsible of her current situation.

Simply Stunning!

The Knight picks right up where The Pawn ended. Yes you need to read it first, The Knight is not a stand alone.

We pick up with Avery after Gabriel took what he wanted and threw her out. With no money and nowhere to go she is desperate. Desperate to find a way to get her family home back and get her life back. She is determined to find the answers to her questions. No matter the cost. With nothing to lose, why not?

The Knight is absolutely wonderful. Lies, secrets and drama. Not c

4 Stars!!

'The Knight' is the second installment in Skye Warren’s newest series entitled 'End Game' and like the previous installment held me at the edge of my seat the entire time. Gripping, fantastically written with some interesting angst and suspense, this second book was enthralling, captivating, erotic and deliciously mysterious.

Ever since I finished The Pawn on that fateful cliffhanger - have I mentioned how much I loathe cliffhangers? - I've been waiting breathlessly for The Knight. I had to know what happened next; would I get answers or just more questions?

Well... I sort of got both. The story starts immediately after The Pawn left off; Avery is living in a crappy motel, trying to save the only thing she has left of her mother; her house. Enter Gabriel, still tall, dark and broodingly delicious. I mean, seriously,

The second installment of the Endgame series is even better than the first...some questions answered but even more have emerged...this plot line is so intricate and engaging.

I think Gabriel Miller may be my all time favorite Skye Warren hero/alpha...he's a total a$$hole and he owns it...loud and proud. Although when it comes to Avery, we see the tiniest cracks in his hard veneer. At the point in the story where hard to hear truths are revealed and confessions are made I experienced so many emot

I think I had a good abs workout reading this book, my stomache was clenched the whole time!! This isn't dark like The Pawn, but it is full of suspense and wondering, what next, why that, and, wow, that was not what I thought, now what about..... you get the picture.

To say it wasn't as dark doesn't mean there aren't some deep and emotional moments with Gabriel and Avery. It still is more charcoal than black, and definitely not pure lily white, but then again, there relationship will never be th

"At one in the morning I wake to the sounds of a headboard banging on the wall..."

Nothing is the same for innocent Avery any more.
Thrown out of Gabriel’s home after he forcefully took her virginity, Avery ends up in a cheap motel trying to survive until the month finishes and she can get the one million dollars. Luckily Gabriel is paying for the expenses of her father’s private clinic. But unfortunately her house has been stolen from her. More nasty surprises will come in the life of Avery.

Skye Warren is a genius. Pure and simple.

The Knight, the second installment of the Endgame series is even better than The Pawn. It picks up right where the first book leaves off. I was eager to dive head-first into this one, and in this novel ingenue Avery St. James and criminal mastermind Gabriel Miller's journey deepens as they continue to walk the thin line between love and hate.

The Knight is fabulously hard-core, ridiculously sexy, and just plain scrumptious in its overall delivery. This

Sometimes I like to do the book equivalent of dumpster-diving and just root around in the Kindle store, looking for the most decadent, over-the-top, flaming hot mess (emphasis on the "hot") I can find, because I'm a trash queen, and when I'm not working 9-5, I enjoy lording over my vast kingdom of garbage reads.

"The Knight" is the second book in this thrilling trilogy! Another great read in this series, and this time we get a ton of answers to the questions that have been building since the first installment!
We also are treated to a bit of a softer side in Gabriel...but believe me....he still is mainly dark! There isn't much softness to him; but when it comes to his Queen...nothing will stop him from protecting her, and possessing her!

Well, that was over too quickly…

I can’t believe I rushed it. I should have taken my time, kept the tension going and drawn out the drama. I started this morning, and the next thing I knew, I’d hit the epilogue. I think right there is proof that I got sucked in.

The Knight kept me enthralled. I was fascinated watching both Avery and Gabriel change. Avery learns the power she holds over Gabriel and uses it to her best advantage. Gabriel, well, the poor bugger can no longer hide his need for Avery.

Wow. There is third book! I want it!! Oh God, I loved, loved, loved it. It was so fantastic! Everything was perfect!

Totally underwhelming.
I'm unimpressed with this installment.
I really enjoyed the 1st book.
There was so much anticipation and tension and "holy crap" moments in the 1st book.
It really hooked me into reading this next episode.
Sadly, this one fell so flat for me.
I just don't care about this storyline anymore.
There's not enough desire inside me to care whatsoever about what happens beyond this point.
"Forever" and "Always" have been uttered... and I'm content leaving Gabriel & Avery's story here.

I need The Castle and I need it now cause The Knight was a fabulous follow up to The Pawn. Still the pace is as good as the first book. I'm addicted to this story and to Avery and her quest for answers. Gabriel finally shows his true motives and he only keeps surprising me. He's so intriguing with his dark history but when it comes to Avery he's possessive in the sexy and intoxicating way. I really enjoyed their push and pull game and how Avery tried to resist the pleasure Gabriel showed her. Sh ...more

The Knight begins from the last part of the previous book where there is a fallout between our protagonists. Avery St. James has nothing left as Gabriel took everything from her. She trusted and developed feelings for him, still he betrayed her. Hurt by his actions, she must do everything to survive and plan her next move. She temporarily lives in a cheap motel and she thought Gabriel is done with her. When she found out he's auctioning her family's home, she decided to play his game. After all, ...more

THANK YOU, Skye Warren, for creating Gabriel Miller….for my pleasure! Just when I think Skye Warren can’t get any better, she goes and drops Gabriel into my lap (yes, please!). I was SO excited about this book, and I was not disappointed.

I actually danced when I saw this book on my kindle.

The Knight picks up where The Pawn ended. Avery is barely getting through life. After she leaves Gabriel, her life takes a turn for the worse. Her father is still ill and she has no means to save her mother's home.

As much as she tries to avoid Gabriel, he finds new ways to make her feel his presence. He is as elusive as always and 10 times more stubborn. He is hell bent on getting his money's worth so he'll do anything to keep Avery close.
