Lucien Knight is the enigmatic CEO of Knight Industries, and he is looking for a new PA. When an envelope sealed with a kiss arrives on his desk he knows he has found her.
Sophie Black is bored. Bored of her work as a building contractors PA, bored of a marriage to man who she is convinced is having an affair, and bored with the routine of dinner, T.V., bed (and not the fun kind of bed). With the help of her friend Kara she sends the application to Knight Industries.
Lucien knows that the shy, reserved woman in front of him has a wild streak he just needs to help her unleash it. When he finds out her husband is a cheating no-good liar, Lucien decides to broaden Sophie’s horizons. Being the owner of several Adult Entertainment clubs comes in handy to loosen her up and show her that life can be anything but dull.
With a past filled with pain and no plans for his future, Lucien soon finds that he is not only the teacher but also the student, and Sophie will teach him far more about love than he ever dreamed possible.
Kitty French is fast becoming one of my favourite authors. This is vastly different to the first book of hers that I read – The Skeletons of Scarborough House – but no less enjoyable.
Lucien’s character is brilliant. The ultimate CEO of the adult industry, he has all the charm and charisma to go with it. I love his loyalty above all else. The one moment where he tries to purge Sophie from his thoughts I was quietly screaming ‘NOOOO!’ but it all ends well and when the love emerges there is no stopping him.
Sophie epitomises many women who find themselves stuck in a hum drum marriage with the daily routine of life. For Sophie, getting out of it was essential. Her husband was a lying cheater who thought that she would just forgive and forget after 3 years with a mistress, fortunately for Sophie she had Lucien on her side. I know that technically she also cheated on her husband and she was riddled with guilt because of it, but seriously…he deserved it!
Book One brought the pair together and apart.
Book Two brings them back together and delves deeper into Lucien’s past and forges the future for them.
Book Three confirms their union and brings a little love Kara’s way.
A great series based around a taboo subject but with a touch humour along the way.
