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 can
***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 bes

This is the second book in the Knight Brothers series and definitely one of my favorites! Parker Knight is just hands down swoon-worthy..... he's sex on a stick hot, compassionate, thoughtful but what happens when he meets a woman that lights a fire in him? Emily has sworn off men, especially after the hell she's been through.... that is until she meets Parker Knight! Parker and Emily know their time is limited with his business in New York and hers in Colorado but they plan to make the most of ...more

The second book of the Knight Brothers series follows middle brother Parker, who gets stranded on a trip to Colorado and meets his match in Emily, a stubborn, fiery woman. Emily has been through an awful marriage and I understood her reluctance to get to know Parker, but she was too jaded and came across rude. I'm glad she was able to let her guard down a bit and soften towards Parker. He was also able to get over past hurt and move forward with his life.

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.

In sweet, sexy Emily Stevens and the rundown resort she runs with her father, Parker sees the chance to reclaim the life he once lost and take care of the first woman who makes him feel … everything. He wants her in a way he’s never desired a woman before and yearns to sample the treats

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

Emily's life hasn't exactly gone to plan, she has been helping her father keep the Inn that he opened going but it seems like a lost cause. She would love to sell it and get her father settled comfortably somewhere else so she can move forward with her own dream of opening a bakery. Parker's dream of being a professional skier is no longer a viable one, after being in a series of accidents he can no longer preform like he could at one time.

"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

I'm certainly glad I continued with this series because this book was better than the first one in this series and the Knight Brother's are an interesting family.

I liked both main characters and felt that the story developed smoothly.

I'm excited to read Ethan's story next since he has the most interesting back story.

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 the

I've been an avid fan of Carly Phillips since falling in love with the Dare Family--and the Knights have now turned into an equally automatic one-click for me. "Take Me Down" is the first read of this new world for me, but it won't be the last. I did love that I could jump in at Book 3, and easily followed what was happening. The cameos by Parker's sibs definitely made me want to go and read their stories, as well! But of course, the star of this show is Parker himself, who is absolutely my kind ...more

Parker has all the money he could possibly want and Emily has a run down bed and breakfast that was her parents' dream but most certainly isn't hers.

What I loved about this story is that it's about 2 people who are not quite sure they are where they want to be, but aren't sure how to make the changes or if they want to. Watching them figure this out, while enjoying their connection made for a great read. It was light, and enjoyable...but also one that you

I enjoyed this story of 2 unique people learning to fit together, and make their own place in the world.

Parker Knight lost his mother as a kid, and then his father was absent, always making time for one wife after another, but never his own children. 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. His siblings have always called him Switzerland, first for his chosen career, and then for his pe

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.

This was so beautiful!

But first; Ethan! I am very excited about how his story will develop in the follow-ups! He is truly a jerk but maybe he will be redeemed?

As for the book itself, I thought it to be an engaging and enjoyable read. Take Me Down had all the elements and ingredients needed for a good and hot romance. There is such emotion, the right amount of sweetness and the characters were wonderful. I thought the pace of the story was lacking but not enough to have me subtract a star. I li

Oh how I love this family. They have wormed their way into my heart and I can't get enough.

In this book they are looking for a place for a corporate retreat, one in the mountains. The person in charge of checking out the different resorts had surgery and now is unable to continue the search. Now the only Ethan can think of qualified to select such a place is Parker.

An Bronze Metal Olympic skier, Parker had sustained an injury during trials, followed by a car accident as he returned to the sport,

Heartwarming, emotional and totally swoonworthy

From the very first page TAKE ME DOWN had me and it just wouldn't let go. Carly Phillips trapped me with her magical words and two beautiful characters that I instantly fell for. Parker Knight and Emily Stevens are perfect together.

Parker is a "city boy", however working in the family business was never his dream. Injured in a skiing accident while preparing for the Olympics, and then later in a car accident, Parker's dreams are no longer. So he set

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

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

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 thoroughly enjoyed this book.

Neither Parker nor Emily was looking for love. Each is just trying to hold their families together and survive life.

The Knights are a force to be reckoned with. They work hard, fight hard and love completely. The family mantra? "Easy is not good enough, to be the best requires work." Words they take to heart in their professional and personal lives. Sebastian and Sierra fought their demons to come out on top, now it's Parker's turn. Take Me Down is the journey of two broken hearts merging into a soulful unit. Life has not always been kind to Parker or Emily, maybe this time fate finally got it right. Phillips ...more

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 was given this book for an honest review by Wicked Reads.

This is Parker's story. While you don't need to read the previous books in order to understand what's going on, it does give Parker's brother more context.

Parker is OK with his life. He likes working with his family and despite having some bumps in his road, is feeling pretty good about where he is. When his grump of a brother asks him for a favor,

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 what sh ...more
