Okay this is my first time reading anything from this author and it won’t be my last. There’s something special about reading a book and being pleasantly giddy and surprised, and that is how I felt reading “Hot Knight in Paradise”. From the beginning pages of the book when Leah and Marshall met, I felt the chemistry and the heat was there.
You think romance, boy meets girl and bam they’re in love. But a special writer makes it believable with the development of the characters. The characters were given layers to show instead of tell the reader who they were. She was able to take her time with the physical aspect of the relationship and continue to develop the characters and their emotions. I felt there was no need to rush because when that moment came she was going to deliver and it was delivered beautifully.
Leah goes on vacation and misfortune befalls her so she has to rely on Marshall’s help. She doesn’t want his help and he doesn’t want to help, so the stubbornness of both of them leads to some laugh out loud moments while they battle their past demons and their growing attraction to one another. During this time they’re given opportunities to find out about each other, what made them who they are, revealing fears, anticipation and believing that they deserve one another. Although the relationship with Leah and Marshall is less than a month old when the story ends the writer wrote it in a way to tie it up beautifully. She was also able to close the storyline without any unnecessary fillers that made it appear realistic.
I would recommend this book, I would also like to hear more about Leah and Marshall in the future. I couldn’t get enough of them.
