When I’m offered the chance to leave New York to live in London for three months, I can’t pack my suitcase fast enough.

As soon as I touch down I’m obsessing over red telephone boxes, palaces and all the black cabs.

But my favorite place is the tube. It’s wall-to-wall hot British men in suits.

When I’m offered a temporary job working for a barrister, I say, sign me up.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️! The British Knight (stand-alone). Violet falls into secret affair with her new brooding, British barrister boss!

“He was different from all those guys in New York. Complicated and confusing but challenging and desperately sexy.”

The British Knight (stand-alone) opens up to MIT graduate and waitress Violet King heading to London for three months. En route to a job interview she encounters a profusely polite, beyond sexy and slightly aloof Brit. Barrister Alexander

➦BAM! First read of 2018 and thank you, Louise Bay, for this fabulous book! I've always enjoyed this author's writing but this was definitely my favorite of hers. She has written hot arrogant lawyers before, but in this book she took her time developing the characters and the plot. And I appreciate the length of this book. I didn't want it to end!

➦Audiobook narration by a guy with a hot British accent? Yes, please. I'm ALWAYS up for that.

descriptionI enjoyed this one a lot. I almost always do when it comes to this author, so no surprise that this one was no different. Her books are always just straight up romances without a ton of angst and drama. They make you laugh. The make you cry. They always leave you smiling. Just another excellent read by Miz Bay.


So onto the deets...I found this one to be very well written. The pace was fairly good. I found it a little slow moving in places and a little too long. But to be honest I have a wicked

0 -35/40% -> 2.5 stars
40-100 % -> 4.5-5 stars

Color me surprised, the book wasn’t what I expected it to be.

It started as a ‘typical’ romance with slightly shallow heroine and rude hero.

But then approx. about 40% it turned out to be a deep story with good developed likable characters.
Well, I like to be positively surprised ;-)

I didn’t enjoy it till about 30%. The heroine didn’t annoy me, but she was just so ‘standard’: permanently wet and aroused. Though constantly sassy and never weak.

Just putting this out there..
First, this is my first book by this author.
Second, I loved this book. End of.

I am a happy reader when I know that I can't put a book down and do an all nighter. The British Knight was it for me. It had a seamless flow without all the unnecessary drama- which is a breath of fresh air after the book slump that I've been in.

I’ve always wanted to be rescued by a British Knight, and finally I have been❤️ A sexy, overachiever, arrogant, yet kind with a certain someone, handsome man. A man that won’t back down from anything or anyone. A man that gets what he wants because he can and will.

What a beautiful story!!! So real and funny and super cute!! The characters Alex and Violet have such chemistry together it is a joy to read.
Violet is smart, sexy, and funny and Alex is smart, too, handsome and quirky but that makes him so much more enjoyable. They have one hot and sexy relationship that’s for sure and it has only gotten hotter as time goes on. They have more than just a physical connection though, it’s an all around perfect fit with these two. And there is a faint

Overall Opinion: I enjoyed this! I was really digging it, and if it wasn't for the ending I would've loved it! I'm a greedy, greedy girl and I wanted more from the end. It felt way too abrupt after their conflict was resolved, and I really wanted to experience the changes they made for each other! I felt like we were just told about them instead. I really liked the H. He was definitely a grump at times, but I loved that he was just clueless and that he found himself wanting more out of l

The British Knight takes fans of these characters across the pond to London where New Yorker Violet King meets sexy Brit Alexander Knightley. Violet is a little lost in her life at the moment which is why such a drastic change is just what she needs to figure out where she wants to end up in life. Alexander is the complete opposite and has known since day one that he wants to be the best barrister, (that's a trial lawyer for my fellow U.S. peeps) and become just

Louise Bay knows how to weave a tale. She understand motivators for her characters and takes her readers on a journey where every discovery these characters have is heartfelt. She gives them deep emotional obstacles which must be overcome in order for us to receive the happily ever after we so want. She does it with a sure hand and this time, not only with a British accent but in London to boot.

Ferocious wall sex, anyone?

I'm down with that! And boy oh boy did Alexander and Violet deliver. Don't get me wrong, there was so much more to this story than sex appeal. It was a very intriguing read. I absolutely loved the setting. I've been waiting for a romance set in the U.K. from Louise Bay and was beside myself with glee when this book was announced! And she delivered another amazing romance! I simply adore her books.

another audiobook, another disappointment... unfortunately this one is a DNF for me at about 25% I really tried... honestly... especially since both narrators were truly phenomenal... actually, the fact that Shane East narrates this book with his swoonworthy british accent... but I didn't really like either of the main characters... and the writing style was just "meh" for me... :/ both Violet and Alexader behaved in a way that was completely unbelievable for me... the more I got into the story ...more

⭐3-3/4 Stars (pushed it to 4 Stars)⭐

*Thoroughly enjoyed Alexander's strong, no nonsense character

*I loved the humor that was directed toward the reader throughout the book (although I would have like more towards the end)

*The time gaps or delays between when a character decided to do something and the action occurring was strange

*the romantic steamy bits were only at the beginning of the book and completely died out from the middle to the end which made it quite a bit dull to finish

*The storylin
Couldn't get into it. I must have stopped and started this book at least 4 times and in the end I couldn't even finish it. My main problem was the heroine, she's just someone I wouldn't route for. She reminded me as one of those girls that would take a vacation to Europe and come back with a European accent and tell everyone "oh well in Britain they do it so much better blah blah blah." You know the type. And the reason why she left the hero without even a proper goodbye was childish and stupid.
Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

When I started The British Knight by Louise Bay, I was a little worried that the hero in this book was going to keep me from loving it, but I’m very happy to say that was not the case. I loved the complexity of these characters and the metamorphosis they both underwent during this story. Nothing is better than seeing characters make changes in their lives not for another person but because they realize they want something more out of their life. The fact that they also found one another and a lo

I can't stop reading these addictive books by Louise Bay, because they're a mixture of office romance, a little bit of sophisticated charm and always a hot and swoonworthy male lead, such as Alexander Knightley. Even his name is pure seduction, and I love him. His controlled yet passionate attitude made me fangirl like crazy, even more so than I did with Max, Sam or Ryder. The books in this series are always a fun and erotic adventure, and I can relax while readi

Oh Louise, Louise, Louise. You have topped yourself this time. Alexander and Violet are so swoon-worthy together, and Alex is such a giving more ways than one.

First, I loved Violet's spitfire personality. She is truly a ball buster and doesn't flinch at Alex's gruff demeanor. She challenges him like nobody else has, and I think that's an important factor in any relationship. We want someone who pushes us to be our best self.

Ohhhhhhhh YES!!! Violet is definitely my kinda girl! Although a standalone, I've been impatiently waiting for Violet's story. 

Violet has experienced more disappointment than the average heroine. Everything that could possibly go wrong, has gone so incredibly wrong the direction is in another hemisphere! She's not a quitter though. She may be stagnant in her life, but all is not lost. Enters Alexander the Great.......

I found this book to cliche and predictable. I won't even give an details because the synopsis is just fine. I didn't find the characters well developed at all. The plot was okay, nothing special.
It was a very quick read though and the ending was satisfying.

Words cannot express how enamored I am with this entire series of standalones from Louise Bay. Every single time I read one I think, "This is my favorite of the series," but then the next one is released and I fall head-over-heels all over again. Each one has a sexy as hell hero, a strong heroine, and the perfect blend of intense physical chemistry and romance, making these stories the perfect mix of romance perfection.
