Okay, so...there's a really good reason by R.C. Boldt has become a go-to author for me. I never, ever walk away from one of her books feeling unsatisfied. They consistently make me smile, they consistently set my heart aflutter, and they consistently leave me feeling content, happy, and a little bit schmoopy about how everything went down. Guess what? This is exactly how I feel about He Loves Me...KNOT too.

I adored both Emma Jane and Knox and I feel like Ms. Boldt did a wonderful job of weaving

"Sometimes perspective comes with time."

I AM SO GLAD I read this one!!! I have been happily reading RC since she was introduced to me earlier this year, and this one has been on my TBR since I heard about it. A second chance romance with some easy going characters? Sign me up!! This book flowed, as usual, and I even got some giggle worthy moments...totally signature RC. She is a strong writer, and that showed in this book. She always has a lighter feel to her words, and her stor

This is only my second R.C. Boldt book and I can now safely say, she will be forever added to my one-click author list!

He Loves Me Knot is a fun, sexy and at times heartbreaking second chance romance. Emma Jane and Knox fell in love so many years ago but due to an unfortunate misunderstanding, Emma Jane leaves Knox at the alter.

However, while running away from her future, she runs into a life that she never thought possible all with the help of her new and unexpected best friend, Becket. Emma Ja

This story was...freaking fantastic! Emma JAne and Knox are the perfect power couple to swoon after. This story centers on misunderstandings and second chances. There’s slight angst, some backstabbing and betrayal, and the BEST best friends ever! I loved this book so hard that I cannot wait to start reading it again. This is my third book by this author, and I have no plans to ever stop reading her stories. She mixes relatable situations with humor, and it’s always a refreshing and unique read! ...more

Pardon me while I enjoy one of the best book hangovers I've ever had! I've been a fan of RC since the first book I've reviewed for her. I've loved every book immensely, but this book.... It's on a whole nother level. I wanted to lay down and go to sleep because the migraine I had prior to starting kept getting worse from the brightness of the kindle. There was just one problem. I COULDN'T PART WITH THIS STORY!!! There wasn't a chance in hell that I was going to put this book down. I was i

He Loves Me…KNOT by RC Boldt is a sweet and beautiful second chance romance between two people who have always been meant to be but were separated for a few years only to find their way back to each other again.

Emma Jane Haywood and Knox Montgomery knew they were meant for each other and were finally going to spend the rest of their lives together…until she left him at the altar and out of everyone’s lives. Her decision to leave ruined her relationship with he

Love LOVE lOvE when I read a new author and fall in love. This book captivated me. A second chance romance that definitely deserved a second chance💗

Emma Jane is a southern belle, she wants her independence from her controlling dad. She's fun, she's outgoing, she loves the ones around her wholly, and she can't wait to live her dreams out. She has that soul bearing love with her high school sweetheart, until she doesn't. In the matter of a day, she literally loses everything, and I mean everything

Recommends it for: NOBODY.

I read this entire book just to get THAT as the reason she walked away??? Unbelievable.

Knox and Emma Jane are madly in love, but after Emma Jane overhears a conversation right before her wedding, instead of asking Knox WHY he said what he said, she stands him up at the alter and runs away, leaving her town forever. Deciding after hearing that conversation, that she is never going to talk to Knox or her family ever again. Smart move....

2.95 stars. I love a good second chance romance... unless the reason for h running off is ridiculously stupid. Yeah, the reason could have been sorted out with a 2 minute conversation instead of running off for 8 freaking years!! But that’s not the only reason I rated this below 3 stars. I also skimmed through the slower paced dialogue and got bored here and there. I think the only reason I didn’t DNF was only to find out why the h ran off on her wedding day - and we all know how I feel about th ...more
A destined second chance romance that had me glued my kindle.

R.C Bolt had me reading he loves me knot in one sitting and I finished with a happy sigh.

Brilliantly written, I adored the characters the flow, the hot scenes in the right places and the plot that had you guessing up to the last chapters.

Cleverly written, He love's me...knot begins with Emma Jane seeking much needed alcohol after fleeing her own wedding day and finds herself sitting in the least expected place people would look, a g

Nope, I am not reading this!

Second chance romances often piss me off if the reason of separation doesn't make sense.

Here, the 8 year separation is because of a misunderstanding that would have been easily resolved with 5 minutes of conversation. It sounds frustrating!

An emotionally driven and impassioned, second chance romance!

He Loves Me...KNOT overflows with heartache, desires, unresolved issues, lust, and fate. The story, along with the characters, makes you constantly wonder "what if". And it doesn't lack in the miscommunication aspect either, with touches of secrets being kept throughout the story.

Knox and Emma Jane are two quite unique characters. Both feel as if the other person broke their heart. And in a way, they did. Trust and communication play h

This is my first time reading RC Boldt and I am wondering why I haven’t read her before. I enjoyed every aspect of this story. Emma Jane and Knox were two very interesting and fun people. I loved the transformation of both of these characters and smiled as they denied their feelings, fought their feelings and then finally gave in and admitted to those feelings. It was a long but beautiful journey filled with some secondary characters that sometimes stole the show.

A misunderstanding can change so many lives: it can destroy a love so deep that it shatters hearts. It can put you in the path of a person who becomes an essential part of your life.

He Loves Me...Knot brought all this and more. Emma Jane and Knox were perfect! I can't say enough about how I felt wrecked, happy, sad, and had my heart put back together.

Beautifully written by an amazing author that I discovered a few months ago.

He Loves Me Knot is a fantastic second chance romance and I absolutely loved this book. I’ll be honest I wasn’t sure what this was going to be about having not read the blurb and at first I originally thought that the story was going to be about Becket and Emma.

Turns out that is not what it is about at all but I will say I loved the friendship that we get out of Becket and Emma.

Emma is what one would call the runaway bride and of course I immediately want to know what happened and why she ran

This book has one major flaw: the reason why Emma Jane, the h, leaves Knox, the H.

The author tries to explain why she is so upset but I don't get it. If I love a guy so much that I want to marry him, I need to be able to trust him at least a little bit. Emma Jane knows Knox for years (!) and instead of talking to him, asking what the fuck was going on, she left.

If you can forget the reason why she causes all this drama, it's a solid and decent story.

Knox was my highlight of this book

A beautiful second chance romance that will have you believing in love and soul mates.

Emma Jane leaves Knox on their wedding day, on the worst day of her life she meets Becket and her life is irrevocably changed. Don’t fret this is not a love triangle, over the years Becket becomes her best friend and I loved him he’s the supportive friend we all want.

Yes there is a reunion between them, the story flits between the past and present. Which means we get the story of how the met in school, how the

To be honest I wasn't totally sure if I would end up liking this at times. I worried that it would be boring or overly cheesy. But the author managed to keep me entertained throughout all of the story. Part of this was due to Becket - yep, I totally love him. But also the hero and heroine were great! EJ and Knox were both really lovable, even though their actions sometimes caused me to want to bump my head against a wall. The story itself wasn't all that remarkable, but the characters made me en ...more

oh dear. I thought I'd enjoy this a hell of a lot more.

This was a classic case of miscommunication and misunderstanding.

Spoiler Alert: The reasoning for her leaving him at the alter was not a plausible reason for me. It was freakin frustrsting. Emma Jane could have EASILY spoke to him about it. ALL THEY NEEDED TO DO WAS TALK TO EACH OTHER ABOUT IT! But unfortunately she overheard her dad saying to Knox how he needs to get these dreams/aspiration/ goals out of Emma Janes head.

This was a second-chance romance that plays heavily on fate/destiny and superstition. Emma Jane and Knox grew up together in the Deep South (Mobile, Alabama).
They were high school sweethearts, until she ran away on their wedding day. Later, a chance encounter forces them to (eventually) face their feelings- and the truth. I liked the main characters and the pace at which the story was told. Truthfully, my favorite character was the heroine’s best friend Beckett. He will be getting his own novel

Just know that I am fanning myself just sitting here thinking about this book. The steamy factor in this book is off the charts. I fell in love with this book right from the beginning.

I have come to love RC Boldt's words over the last year or so. She has made me laugh and swoon like it is no one's business. This book is just another notch in that belt. I couldn't put this book down.

There is always something about angst and steam that go hand in hand. If they are delivered right, they can be expl
*Sigh* I just LOVED this book! It kind of had that Sweet Home Alabama know the movie, right? With Reese Witherspoon? Well I don’t mean it was just like it, but it reminded me of it. I mean, yes, they both took place in Alabama, but it’s not just that. It’s the story of two people who fell in love young, but it fell apart and there were bitter feelings. But deep down they never really moved on, they both still belonged to one another. It’s about fate. It’s about second chances. It’s ve ...more

Review by Lisa Kane

Who doesn’t love a second shot at romance story? Emma Jane Haywood was set to marry the love of her life-Knox Montgomery. They had been together since they were locker buddies in the tenth grade. So on her wedding day, right before she is about to walk down the aisle, something happens that affects her so badly she flees. She becomes the ugly crying runaway bride and ends up in a gay bar. She’s ready to drink herself into a stupor. But she’s not alone-oh no- NFL hottie Becket
