The British Knight by Louise Bay
Release Date: December 5th
Genre: Contemporary Romance
When I’m offered the chance to leave New York to live in London for three months, I can’t pack my suitcase fast enough.
As soon as I touch down I’m obsessing over red telephone boxes, palaces and all the black cabs.
But my favorite place is the tube. It’s wall-to-wall hot British men in suits.
When I’m offered a temporary job working for a barrister, I say, sign me up.
On my first commute into work, it’s a total accident when I lose my balance and fall against the most handsome Brit alive. He’s as charming as James Bond and as suave as Mr. Darcy. I want to lick tea from his hard abs and listen to his accent all night long.
Turns out Mr. Handsome is my new boss. And his attitude isn’t as hot as his gorgeous face, broad shoulders and tight ass. He’s brooding, short-tempered and the most arrogant man I’ve ever met.
As we’re fighting, out of nowhere he kisses me. And I’m pretty sure I see fireworks over Big Ben and hear God Save the Queen.
I wasn’t looking for the fairytale but I might have found my knight in shining armor. The problem is he lives an ocean away.
4.5 ‘Seize each other’ Stars!

I’ve been in love with Louise’s characters since I first read King of Wall Street. Since then, she has been releasing books about the characters we met through that amazing book and I’ve loved every single one of them! When she announced Violet’s story I sure got super excited about it and I can now say you will not be disappointed! The British Knight was another absolute winner for me!
So, as I said, The British Knight is related to most of Louise’s releases since King of Wall Street. Of course you can read this as a standalone novel but I am sure you will get curious about all the other couples (because they are awesome!). But now it’s time for Violet King to fall in love and who is better than a hot British workaholic? So, Violet is not in a good place, she needs a change in her life and she gets it by starting a new job in London. Well, everything gets a bit complicated when she meets her new sexy boss (Alexander Knightley) and the sparks start flying.
Nothing ever broke my concentration, but Miss King had found a way.
I’ve missed these characters, man! All of them were what made me fall in love with Louise’s love stories and Violet and Alexander were not an exception! The couple of The British Knight starts with lots of complicated past situations and both people decided not to act on their attraction. Their connection is forbidden but it also is unstoppable. Violet and Alex start getting on VERY well, obviously things progress after that and I loved it!
It was a desire I was trying to fight—head over heart, mind over matter.
A romantic was the last thing I’d ever describe myself as being, but that’s what Violet King was doing to me. She was changing me into a man who took Saturday nights off and danced in a park.
The chemistry between these two is extremely hot! I mean, who does not love a sexy office romance? I loved the relationship between Violet and Alexander so freaking much! Not only because of the mind-blowing sex but also because of their beautiful connection. They bring out the best in each other and they also heal their past injuries together. They fight for what they feel (when they realize it!) and I loved seeing them so happy in the end.
He was my Knightley in shining armor and our fairytale was as real as it got.
Therefore, I am rating The British Knight with 4.5 STARS because it was a fantastic love story with great characters and lots of sexy and emotional moments! Also, it was great to catch up with all the other couples in the other books. Louise Bay has created a beautiful list of characters and I want more (Darcy’s story is much needed!!!). So, of course, I am definitely recommending this one!

My workout this morning had been punishing. The harder I worked, the harder I worked out. I was a big believer in that if I wasn’t physically fit, I couldn’t perform as well in my job. And I was willing to do whatever I had to do to be the best barrister I could be. As a result, I’d been up since five, worked out until six thirty, and then had a conference call with Dubai at seven. I hated days when I was late into the office, but this morning couldn’t be helped. My commute had been . . . unusual. The woman I’d knocked into while getting off the tube had been beautiful, and I couldn’t keep the image of her gazing up at me in the middle of Lincoln’s Inn Fields out of my brain. I needed to focus. And perhaps get laid when I got the time. But it wouldn’t be tonight. I’d be working. I had hundreds of witness statements to go through and my opening statement to draft.
In three days, I’d be in court, and that was my sole focus. There was no time to be wasted on fantasizing about women.
As I trawled through my emails, trying to pick out the important ones from the hundreds littering my inbox, someone knocked at my door. I resisted the temptation to growl. I hated being interrupted—I needed a sign for the door.
“Come in,” I barked.
The door swung open, and I could tell by the footsteps that the head clerk had swooped in. “Mr. Knightley.”
“Craig.” I didn’t take my focus off my laptop screen. Craig was an avuncular and charming man in his mid-fifties. He’d been in the business since he was fifteen and had clerked my father. If anyone could interrupt me, he could. And he knew it. Over the years, I’d tried to get him to call me Alex, but he insisted all the clerks and admin staff call the barristers by their surnames. The bar could be a very old-fashioned place.
“I want to introduce you to your new assistant, Violet King.”
I paused, my fingers hovering over my keyboard. I knew nothing of this and would never have agreed to it—I worked alone. Slowly, I turned to find Craig in front of my desk, his eyebrows raised in expectation.
“My what?” I asked. A figure moved in beside him and I slid my gaze to the right. I found myself staring straight at the beautiful woman who’d invaded my thoughts since I’d arrived in chambers. What was going on? I looked away from her, sure that Craig would see my attraction to her if my eyes lingered over her for more than a split second.
