I have to confess, Jon has never been one of my favourite Knights. Ok, I know, you can gasp and virtual bitch slap all you want, but that was just my opinion.

I always pictured Jon as the soft and cuddly bear, the one who loved to hug trees and could levitate while meditating. And yes I have a mentally skewed perception of guys that do yoga and have their ying and yang firmly balanced – it wasn’t overly masculine in my mind…..however, I got a bit of a knuckle upside the head when I read Afterlife.

Jon was hardcore. In my opinion more hardcore than all the other Knights so far.....to the point that it stepped over my short threshold of dominant enjoyment and dipped a little into unwanted territory.

Yes, he was full on, no holds barred, confident as hell – dominant, but there was one specific scene where he pushed the issue too far with me – that was the emotional time in the limo with Rachel. I understand that it may have been what Rachel needed at the time, but I either wasn’t in tuned enough with the characters to be able to accept it, or I’m just being a little pansy about the whole thing – but either way, it was a scene that I didn’t overly enjoy.

Another thing that I found hard was being able to concentrate on the yoga positions. I don’t do yoga, so I found it hard to visualise the positions while keeping up with the book.

But enough about the bits I didn’t enjoy – what I did enjoy was the writing. Joey has such a great ability to suck you in to every scene. To make you feel each touch, to make you heart pound with emotion and this book did it constantly. I felt for both characters, Rachel with her huge loss and Jon as he tried to convince the woman he loved that she was worthy of his love. It was very emotional, very steamy and very well written.

The Knights of the Boardroom are definitely the hottest dominant books I have ever read. The stories seem real, so descriptive and detailed that it seems more like a documentary on real men, than a fantasy.

Joey Hill is one talented writer and I am eagerly anticipating Ben’s book.
