This is quick becoming one of my favorite series, I am really enjoying these books. Carly's writing is point on, her style, flawless to me.

Parker & Emily, you can tell they were written for each other😋, simply perfection in this story. It was nice to see Parker find his HEA, and the journey he takes to finally find his happy and comfortable spot. I loved how he went after what he wanted, took control, but still showed his loving kind heart.

Although this is the 3rd book in the series, this
***5 Stars***

Such a fun read!
It was quick and filled with all the goodness of two people getting to know each other and finding that the pull they have towards each other is more than either had ever thought to find.

I adored Parker. This man has been through a lot more than most realize, even his own family who he is very close to, but he keeps on going and is simply surviving. But his easy going nature and charisma were just as lethal as when he decided to step in and take charge in the best

5 star review Take Me Down (The Knight Brothers #2) by Carly Phillips
I am really loving this latest series from Carly Phillips. There is somewthing about her style of writing that I love. The Knight Brothers series ticks all the boxes for me, from Alpha males, to feisty heroines and family love and support.
This is Parker Knight and Emily Stevens story and though not a particularly long read, Ms.Phillips certainly packed a whole lot of emotions into this book.
Parker has never really felt at h

I’m always looking for a new romance read. I just can’t get enough of romance stories, so when I read the book description of ‘Take Me Down’ I couldn’t resist and signed up. I don’t really love the cover, but as a fanatic reader I know I can’t judge a book by its cover. And I was super excited when I received the email telling me I was going to get an ARC.

In ‘Take Me Down’ we meet Emily Stevens and Parker Knight. Emily has recently moved back to the little town she grew up in to help her father

Take Me Down is a great addition to the Knight Brothers Series by Carly Phillips.

I think Parker Knight is my favorite Knight so far. I absolutely loved his character. He was the perfect mix of Alpha possessive and man with a soft and loving heart. He had me swooning throughout the whole story.

Take Me Down is the 3rd book in this series and can be read as a standalone. My recommendation would be to re

"He hadn't intended to tie himself to the town but that was exactly what he'd done. But the strongest of the roots he'd be leaving here was his heart."

Parker Knight is a businessman. In his suit and tie, he strolls through the streets of Manhattan, where his family's business is. But this is not the life that makes him happy. An accident in the past has changed the course of his career and brought him a difficult guilt to overcome. Now, a task given by his older brother and a broken car in the m

This was a quick read for me, because I was so engrossed in the story, but it has surprising depths and unexpected hits straight to the heart. I’m so over the billionaire trope, but there’s just something about these Knight brothers that sucks me into their world and they effortlessly find a place in my heart.

Parker heads to Colorado to scope out the location for their next corporate retreat but ends up at a rundown B&B when his car breaks down. In no time, Parker finds himself entangled in

*happy sigh* god I loved this. Take me down is a light, sweet read with some serious feels thrown in that had me totally hooked. A true example of the genre this book is full on bursting with romance that makes you swoon. A strong heroine with the weight of the world on her shoulders, a kind hearted hero who wants nothing more than to help her family Parker and Emily are what romance readers dream of.

I honestly can not say enough about this author. The Dare books are ones of my very favorite books ever, but The Knight Brothers have successfully wormed their way into my heart. I loved Sebastian (book 1) and I loved Sierra (their sister and book 1.5) and Parker's book was no different. I really loved everything about this book. Emily is my kind of heroine for sure. She is strong and stubborn. She is vulnerable and quite a spitfire. I can not say enough about this book. Actually all of this aut ...more

I love this series! I’ve felt bad for Parker in the previous book when he had to quit skiing and lost his fiancé. I feel like he has been muddling along. I was so glad his brother sent him to Colorado to find a resort for their company get away. When he gets stuck in the small town in Colorado, and is taken to the small, rundown B&B I think it was the best thing to happen to him. Of course his first meeting with Emily whose father owns the B&B did not start out well. But when I found out ...more

Then, later, he was living his dream as an elite Olympic champion skier, when he lost his fiancee, and his dream career, all in one fatal car accident.

I have recently started to read Carly Phillips and I’m wondering why I haven’t been doing so for longer. She writes such fun and vibrant characters and stories that are so quick and easy to read but leave you with that happy, warm feeling of a satisfying love story.

This is Parker’s story and Book 3 in the Knight Brothers series. I’ve read Book 2 (Take the Bride) but not Book 1 (Take Me Again). While the Knight siblings and their significant others from their own bo

This is the second book in the series - and I would say that you would benefit from reading these books in order to understand the background to the Knight brothers behaviour and rationale.

In this installment, Parker, the least business interested brother gets his story told in full. We know that he is a reluctant part of the business, but he is loyal to his brothers, and realises that Ethan, who always behaved like a

I loved Parker and Emily's story. It was real, romantic, sexy, and deep.

Emily has an ex that is trying to get her back, but she is done and he won't let that stop him though.

Parker has been lost since he couldn't ski anymore and lost his fiance in a car accident. He decided to go work for the family business, but he is not happy there. He just does what he needs to do. But after he went to Colorado he found peace and maybe home.

Emily and Parker get off on the wrong foot but soon sparks are flyi

Parker Knight has been somewhat of a mystery to me within the previous books in this series. We all knew something had happened that really made him into the very quiet, sometimes broody man he is and boy oh boy now we all know, and my heart just really hurt for him.

There was a lot to like about this book, in fact, much of it pushed every positive button that I have, so let’s deal with that first.
Well let’s just say that despite his very apt nickname “ Switzerland” I actually really liked him, he was happy in his own skin, never really bothering to take much of a stand or get involved in anything that wasn’t entirely necessary but when the unexpected was front and centre in his life, he didn’t take long to get off the fence and nail his colours to the mast

We get to visit another Knight brother in, “Take Me Down.” I really liked Parker from the 1st book & couldn’t wait to read his story. Still feeling lost from his accident, Ethan, Parker’s older brother & head of their family company, sends Parker out on a trip to find a location for their Company Retreat. Parker isn’t sure if he wants to go & be around the mountains (or anything else that will bring up more memories about his accident or Rina) but decides maybe this is just what he n ...more

This book is an example of why I do my hardest to get my hands on each and every book Carly writes. I unfortunately missed the first in this series, which I need to rectify, but I still enjoyed this immensely and didn't feel lost at all. It is a standalone so no worries if you haven't yet either. I fell in love with Parker and I just know that the Knight Brothers will become another favorite of mine for sure.

Take Me Down is an opposites attract romance. If you are looking for an easy and quick read with a lot of banter, this book is for you. The story revolves around two people who are not sure what they want, where they want to be and what they want to do with their lives. Parker our hero, was a little interesting for me. At times I thought he was very sweet yet dominant (the perfect combination in my opinion) but at other times I felt that he was just a complete a**hole at the same time. Things th ...more
