NOTE: This is another review I’m transferring over from Amazon. I don’t want the reviews ax to eliminate it.
Knights After My Heart
by Sonya Jesus
Series: Knights, Book 1
Genres: Romance, Suspense
Release Date: September 21, 2017
Purchase from: Amazon | Barnes & Noble
My Rating: ★★★★☆
Amelia’s past issues and personal time limits propel her into a relationship that alters her normal life at Westbrook University. Connor, her new potential boyfriend, triggers jealousy, rehashes old relationships, sparks new ones, and ignites a rage in others that will devastate her ordinary life. As she desperately tries to hold on to her pre-Connor life, she struggles to balance the new-found attention while trying to follow her heart. Something she realizes is complicated… very complicated – because her heart has no idea where it’s going.
Connor may be the change Lia is looking for, but he is certainly not the ending Hawk wants for his Queen. Hawk’s invested too much time in planning his future to let some random guy walk away with his happily ever after. He will do anything to protect her virtue, even if it means protecting her from herself because Amelia belongs to him.
He’s chosen her…
He’s watched her…
He’s studied her…
He knows everything there is to learn about her…
And when the time is right she will reign his heart.
I’m not entirely certain how I feel about Amelia or her best friend, Robins. Sometimes I liked them, and sometimes I wanted to slap them both silly. They have a very complicated relationship that only gets further entangled by her new potential boyfriend, Connor. Hawk, on the other hand, is creepy from his first appearance, and everything you learn about him makes him that much worse.
Sonya manages to write in such a way that you’re suspicious of everyone and everything. You’re left feeling as confused and out-of-the-loop as Amelia herself. I can’t give it 5 stars, because I feel like it should get a second read-through by an editor. I came across several typos and a couple of errors. That said, I’ll be reading the second book once it’s available, because the storyline is intriguing enough that I want to know what happens next.
NOTE: I spoke with Sonya after writing the review, and she mentioned that she was working with her publisher to get the errors fixed. I don’t know if they have since been taken care of.
About the Author
Who am I?
Basically, I’m a fiction writing science nerd, who balances Ph.D. work with my imagination. I love the way writing fiction liberates my mind and allows me the freedom to be creative. A large portion of my time is devoted to turning dreams into reality and the other portion to loving and embracing life. When I’m not writing or trying to investigate the inner workings of the microbial world, I’m either binge watching Netflix, reading on my Kindle or painting. That or I’m either pretending to be a Master Chef with my husband, playing with my 5 dogs, or talking to my family and friends.
Why do I write?
My mind is a hotel and way too many characters live there. They slam doors, fall in love, blow things up and murder each other. Avoiding them usually results in multiple temper tantrum, slamming doors and silent treatments that inevitably results in writer’s block. So, I listen to them and share their stories.
