The power of pleasure...
Gabriel Miller took everything from me. My family. My innocence. My home. The only thing I have left is the determination to get back what's mine.
He thinks he's beaten me. He thinks he's won. What he doesn't realize is that every pawn has the chance to become a queen.
And the game has only just begun.
"Wickedly brilliant, dark and addictive!" - Jodi Ellen Malpas, #1 New York Times bestselling author
THE KNIGHT is book two in the Endgame series from New York Times bestselling author Skye Warren about revenge and seduction in the game of love.
I’ll start with this… I’ve never wanted to play a game of chess so fucking bad in my life. If you haven’t read The Pawn, then stop right now and start with that. You need to know the back history of the two man characters. This is the second book in the series and it is one hell of a ride. I couldn’t put it down.
Avery St. James has lost it all. The life that she grew up with has been demolished and she had to sell her soul to the devil, so to speak. Even that didn’t seem to work out for her. In fact, the one man who she thought would save her might just be the man to destroy her. Not willing to give up, Avery fights for her past. For her house. For her father.
Gabriel Miller is known to be ruthless. No one messes with him and gets away with it. Including Avery’s father. He has constructed everything precisely so that he gets what he wants after being deceived. Everything to him is one big chess game. Everyone has a place and there’s always a strategic move behind what he does. Including his interactions with Avery.
As this game progresses, will feelings start to muddle the water? Will the pull between Avery and Gabriel be too much? Or will this continue to be the mastermind chess game that Gabriel started against a worthy opponent?
Wow, that was a ride. Every single time I thought I knew where Skye was taking this, it took a left turn and then some. There where so many twists and so many pieces to put together that I was constantly on the edge of my seat. I read this book in one sitting. Biting my nails and forcing my heart rate to slow down due to both the suspense and gloriously, delicious steamy times. Did I mention delicious? Or steamy? Or fucking hot?
The chemistry between Avery and Gabriel was off the charts and not only have I never wanted to play a chess game so badly before, I’ve never wanted to be “little virgin” like I did reading this book. I seriously has some envy. The idea of the chase and the games played were extremely hot.
I loved that each person played such a huge part in the pieces of the story. Towards the end, you start suspecting everyone for everything, which is just fantastic. Always, guessing, always thinking. This is a testament to how well Skye wrote the story. The writing flowed and the pace was so fast, as indicating by my one sitting read.
Overall, I loved this book and I love this series. If you are looking for a suspenseful, steamy read with a bit of twists, some darkness and one hero that makes you melt, then this is the book for you! Don’t miss out on this series. Trust me!
