Rhys Cole’s life has always revolved around hockey. Growing up, he knew he’d play in the National Hockey League, but when his dream of being drafted didn’t happen, he chose the next best thing: becoming a hockey sportscaster for a local sports station.

ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

This was such a sexy, romantic, and downright adorable contemporary! It is such a delightful mix of humor, hockey, and hotness! And even though this is so swoon-worthy, it also talks about a lot of tough topics, like bullying and stalking and how it will always be easier for a girl to turn down a guy by saying she has a boyfriend, than just by saying no.

Use Me is set in Chicago, and stars two very different news anchors whose paths cro

4.5 Stars.

I’ve never read Kimberly Knight before, but I knew as soon as I read the blurb for this it was something I needed to rectify and Use Me was exactly how I love them—romantic and sexy with a nice helping of drama to add depth and keep you on your toes, yet at the same time doesn’t feel too heavily laden with tension and angst.

The start of this story is one that‘s fairly familiar—two strangers meet in a bar, drowning their sorrows after the unexpected demise of their relationships—but it’

Preguicinha básica de domingo atacou pra escrever resenha agora. Rs Mas só queria deixar registrado que adoreeeeeiiiiiii USE ME da Kimberly Knight. A Ashtyn é aquela personagem feminina que eu curto, super forte. E eu quero Rhys pra mim!!!!!!! Amei ele. 😍 Adorei a história, o romance gradativo. Senti mesmo que era amor ali. Só achei o final muito rápido, mas nada que atrapalhe a história. Super recomendo.

OTT romance is just not my thing and this book is about as over. the. top. as it gets. Everything from the dialogue to the characters to the plot itself felt incredibly contrived, so unrealistic, and, to be really honest, cheesy.

For characters who were supposed to be professionals in their 30s, they acted and spoke like college students most of the time. They were all over the place. These are characters who had a lengthy conversation about how "famous" they both were and how many Emmys they'd

I'm not generally enthusiastic about romances because they all tend to follow the same series of events with only minor details changed. But I was pleased to see that Use Me not only threw out many of the common romance cliches, but also changed up the flow of the story, putting one of the most climactic scenes right in the middle of the book instead of at the end. The change up worked for me and I actually ended up liking this book many times more than I would normally like an erotic romance.

WoW!!! What an exciting nail biter and fun romance all wrapped up in one amazing book. Two bad break ups, a couple of drinks and a bad pick up line result in Rhys Cole telling Ashtyn Valor, "Use Me."

It has been a while since I have read a Kimberly Knight book, and what a great way to get back into them.

Use Me, right from the start, has quickly become a favourite of her books for me.

Rhys and Ashtyn's story is smart and sexy. I love that they are both successful in their fields and that they feel equal (none of this simpering woman wondering why he wants her). There is a delicious push/pull between them that I couldn't help but adore. Neither are looking for a

You know what's the most famous line about the first kiss? Yeah, that one. You'll never forget your first kiss. But if that kiss is with a.... perfect (dead drop gorgeous) stranger? It's even harder to forget, isn't it?
Rhys and Ash's begins just like that. And that first kiss is like a sublime chocolate. Once you taste it you can do less. And what a chocolate....
But chocolate is a famous heartbreak cure, and that's the first intention, there. But well, the attraction is so intense, "starving"a

One Epic Rollercoaster Read!

I mean rollercoaster! One minute I was laughing, another crying, one scared and one dancing around singing “I knew it, it knew it, I knew it!” This one took me for a ride and I did not want to get off when the ride came to a stop.

Use Me starts out with a sort of friends with benefits thing going on but that never works out! So Ashtyn and Rhys have to navigate breakups, stalkers, crazy ex’s and also new found love. When I say that I could not put this book down, I mean

A new-to-me author. A new to me story.

I really enjoyed our couple. Rhys and Ashtyn are both in television--the news, not shows where acting is a thing.

Yet, they've never met. At least, not until they find themselves single and trying to drown their sorrows at the bottom of a bottle at the local bar.

And from that point on, our characters are sweet and cute and so much fun. They are perfect for each other.

The problem isn't within themselves. The problems are with other people. Both of their ex

Rhys and Ashtyn...were do I begin? Their story is one that hits deep. We all either know someone that has had a cheating boyfriend/girlfriend or have gone through it ourselves. The feelings you get while reading Use Me are real.

Having just been dumped Ashtyn decides to go drown her sorrows. Rhys literally just walked in on his girlfriend in the midst of cheating on him in his own bed. He leaves and goes to the bar to have a few drinks. Who knew that two complete strangers drowning their sorrows

I floved this book! Every book that Kimberly has written shows the great care she takes to formulate each and every character in the story. Each character is the right amount of strong, smart and sexy. What does two broken hearts do when Fate intervenes with them? Both the hero and heroine both have problems but decide to be there for one another if either of them runs into their ex’s. I can say I will never look at a certain pastry the same way ever again thanks for that Kimberly Knight!

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of the book.

I enjoyed Use Me thoroughly! Rhys and Ashtyn are the epitome of relationship goals, which was surprising considering that their relationship began as something purely physical while they served as each others' rebounds. The plot relied a lot on coincidences, but not in a way that was unrealistic or annoying - it was just an example of how the world can be really be a small place. The feelings between the characters as their relationship g

I loved Use Me! Ashtyn and Rhys are two heartbroken people who meet at a bar. Both being local "celebrities" on the news, they know of each other. They decide to use each other to get over their heartbreak. No strings and casual. One of my favorite things about this book was the friendship that developed between the two. They had no expectations, but the draw to each other was strong.

Overall, Use Me was a read peppered with all the feels. I was laughing at times, and anxiously keeping myself fr

When a book makes you want to read instead of sleep and fight with yourself because you are not reading fast enough to see what happens, this is what Kimberly Knight’s books do to me. Every Single Book has gripped me from start to finish and Use Me was no different.

A Gripping Intense Story with plenty of page turning drama dripping with hotness and so much Sexiness.

What started out as one of the worse nights in their romantic lives turned into the best thing ever. When Ashtyn and Rhys each decided to drown their sorrows at the same bar they had no clue this chance encounter would turn their lives around. Ashtyn only needed Rhys to be her pretend boyfriend to ward off some guy (who comes back later ) he tells her to get over someone you need to get under someone else. When circumstances bring people from their past back they have to fight for their love and ...more

I finished this book in 2 days flat, (and I have a life, damn it), but couldn't decide on how best to review it.
I wanted to relay what a great read it was in a clever and witty way without giving away too much.
So I will simply say this, trust me, read the book.
You'll fall in love with the characters.
You'll laugh and cry at/with them, and probably everything in between.
You'll likely have a new BB standard by the end.
You'll certainly root for them. (Like pom-pom and cheers kind of rooting.)

I got this book for an honest review. Ashtyn a very good looking news anchor.. And a very full hearted lover. When she loved she loved full heartedly. She just got out of a relationship that she thought was going well. Until she learned that he was just using her for her looks. Rhys was a sports reporter. He was just so happy. To get the night off because a game got cancelled. But when he went home he found his girlfriend of 2 years not only cheating on him but also in his bed with another man. ...more

There's really a lot to like about this story.  Good pacing, strong characters and a decent story line.  If anything, there's perhaps a little TOO much going on, with the drama not just focussed on one character.  Just when you think the crisis has passed, there is another one around the corner.

Nevertheless, this was one of those books that just keeps you engrossed until the very last page.  Very enjoyable read.

Kimberly Knight does it again with her latest book, Use Me. If you like hot, steamy, keep you on the edge of your seat kind of read, then you’ll want to read this book. Just when you think you’ve got the story figured out, she throws in twists that will blow your mind. Don't miss out on getting to know Rhys and Ashtyn.

Hot damn!! Kimberly Knight has done it again. She's written a great story that has lots of sizzle, with the right amount of suspense. There's lots of steamy sexy scenes, a couple of crazy exes, and a stalker. Mix it all together, and it becomes this great story.
Rhys and Ashtyn meet at a bar one fateful night, and even with all the bad stuff that happens, they endure and become a great couple. Once they realize that they've fallen for each other anyway. Five stars, hands down.

I really liked this book. I didn't expect to like it that much, to be honest, because, within the first few pages I found out the characters were 33/34. Usually, I tend to stray away from books with characters in their thirties. Subconsciously, of course. I think it's because I know I won't be able to relate to them.

However, like I said, I really enjoyed this.From the first few chapters I was engrossed and already feeling for these characters. They both have asshole-ish partners who they break u
