Knight & Play (Knight Series #1) by Kitty French Review:

Goodreads Book Blurb:
There's only one thing in life Lucien Knight really hates, and that's husbands who cheat on their wives.

There's only one problem in Sophie Black's life. Her cheating husband...

From the moment Lucien & Sophie meet, the seal is set.

Romantic, emotional & intensely erotic, Knight and Play is the perfect read for lovers of international bestsellers Fifty Shades & Bared To You. Let yourself be swept away by Part One of the Knight series from Kitty French, a romance so hot it'll burn your fingers...

CEO of Knight Inc. Lucien Knight is catch-your-breath gorgeous and damaged by his troubled past in Norway. All grown up and relocated to London, he's built his empire of adult clubs from the ground up to become the gorgeous patron saint of the sex industry. No one knows the dark childhood secrets that have given Lucien a backbone of steel and a heart encased in ice. No one until Sophie Black, that is...

From the moment girl-next-door Sophie accepts the job as Lucien Knight's PA, she understands how Alice must have felt when she tumbled down the rabbit hole. Lucien takes her safe, vanilla life away and plunges her head first into a huge dish of fantasy flavours. Rich, spicy chocolate covered with dark, oozingly lickable sauce? Check. Tutti-frutti with indecently red, glistening cherries on the top? Yes please.

Lucien strips away all of Sophie's inhibitions, and when he instructs her to select three new toys, she soon realises he has more than a game of Monopoly on his mind...

He's opened the door to a whole new pleasure packed world without limits, and Sophie is utterly intoxicated. But how far is she willing to go? And what happens when she has to step back into reality again?

Lucien & Sophie's is a story of star crossed love and forbidden passion, a sexual odyssey that spans the globe and changes both of their lives forever. Let it change yours, too.

Excuse me while I enjoy my post-coital reading bliss for a moment more… 

The Rundown: 
This book was PURE. GUILTY. PLEASURE! A salacious multimillionaire Viking who owns a sex toy company? Hell Yeah, Sign Me Up!

Sophia is looking for a little excitement in her otherwise boring life. Disenchanted with her marriage and hating her current career, she decides to apply for a PA job with a large sex toy company sealing her CV with a kiss. But when she goes in for the interview, she’s faced with the powerful and enigmatic Lucian Knight, who sets her veins on fire with just one look.

Lucian isn’t looking for a commitment of any kind and he’s picky about who he lets work for him but when doe eyed, innocent Sophia walks into his office for an interview, her sad eyes remind him of a past tragedy and her reluctant bravado wins him over and he decides to hire her.

After a little investigating, Lucian decides Sophia is fair game and needs to be set free from her confines and he wants nothing more than to wipe that sadness from her eye. Offering her one week of sexual bliss, he convinces her to join his world and be free. But their scandalous week might be more than either of them can handle.

The Review: 
Though there was a good story hidden behind all the steamy, the smut is definitely front and center. These two went at it like the world was ending. Lucien is a complete alpha male who’s complicated and heartstoppingly sexy. Sophie is lovely but has lost her self worth because she’s in a bad place in her life. Her adulterous husband has left her lonely and wanting. It was so much fun watching her timid personality buck up and take charge in Lucien’s world of sexual debauchery and lewd vocabulary where a normal day at work is to watch porn instead of hide it from your boss while you huddle behind your desk.

There was enough tension and angst to keep my little heart puttering. Throw in a lot of erotica, a little game of cuff-me-up and blind fold me and I was glued to my seat, reading this in one sitting. Oh, and sex against a tree is always HOT… ;p

My Biggest Complaint…
I love my smut! I’m addicted to my smut but if it’s to be believed, I’m actually going to complain that there was too much smut in this read. I think I was one more sex scene away from grabbing my box of hidden chocolate, binge eating and then crying myself to sleep. Normal people can’t have that much sex in that short of a time span can they? And if they can, Im doing it entirely wrong and I totally want to cash in my “life’s all good” card and get a refund!!!

Seriously though, I think two or three of the sex scenes could have been cut out towards the end and more story added to propel the characters forward faster.

The Wrap Up:
WHYYYYY! Knight & Play leaves off with a HUGE cliffy! Sign me up for the next round because I'm stalking this book until the next one is released!! This book was 200 pages of HOT! This book was super spicy and super steamy! And I bow before the Goddess of Smut and proclaim this book, Naughty! It’s one I'll definitely re-read!
