Summary

Dexter Daniels prefers gems over women. Emeralds over girlfriends. Diamonds over marriage. He might be the most successful jeweler of his generation, a loyal friend, and some say the most handsome man in London, but his past means he doesn’t deal in love.

When Hollie Lumen enters the ballroom where exquisite royal jewels are on display, she brings Dexter’s world to a screeching halt. Despite her hand-me-down dress and borrowed shoes, Hollie is even more stunning than the jewelry. Feisty, funny and ferociously independent, she’s all Dexter can see.

Hollie Lumen can’t catch a break. She thought an internship in London was her chance to escape her responsibilities back in Oregon and for her dreams to come true. When she’s fired only a few weeks after touching down, she’s ready to give up and go home. 

Hollie never asks for help. She knows the only person she can rely on is herself. So, what’s she going to do about the tall, dark, handsome stranger who keeps rescuing her? She’s going to rescue him right back.

Mr. Knightsbridge is a stand-alone romance.

AN ENCHANTING STORY & A V. ENTERTAINING LISTEN

Whenever another contemporary romance is released from Louise Bay it always gets my attention.. followed by my credit of course because, by now, I know her plot-line will have a sexy, charming, gorgeous British male at the forefront deliciously read by Shane East.. and the hero usually has some commitment ‘issues’. Which reclusive talented Jewellery Designer Dexter Daniels, with his successful Jewellery Empire, certainly had because, buried deep is pain and hurt and a misguided belief he lost his only chance of forever love, and that didn’t change when he sees and talks to Hollie.. a beautiful ambitious American Interning with a rival Jewellery House. No, this journey is a subtle creep towards much more with a shaky side step here and there.. and, with every emotional door they opened and went through together sharing their histories, hurts and hungers, it drew them closer and closer.

And one of them will hold out a helping hand when the other has floundered.. one of them will tentatively suggest or nudge and the other will pick up the baton and run with it.. and one of them will open a door to show another perspective on an old wound which will unite brother to brother. Respect, friendship, loyalty, gratitude, forgiveness and beginnings will be forged over that time.. and something else.. undeclared love. But Hollie’s three months in London will fly by and end too soon. Because, as they work, design, laugh, privately sneak around and live and mesh together.. soul-destroying, future-crushing joy-seeping commitments back home in Oregon will stop everything in its tracks. But it won’t be the end.. or will it?

Worth a credit? It’s an easy and enjoyable dual POV mug of hot chocolate on a cold winter’s day. It’s a beautiful soft pillow plot-line with low angst, great secondary characters and a passive, predictable plot. It’s a sweet and simple Cinderella love story with a strong, capable, independent damsel determined to find a way out of her own mess when her fan is suddenly hit with something slimy. It’s a White Knight story because he just couldn’t help himself!! It’s a well-written story as LB’s well-placed gems deliciously reward the listener with chemistry, romance, character development, swoons and feels.. and when those priceless gems forge priceless love the fairytale is complete. It’s got heart and heat and happy ever afters and two very talented actors breathed life into the story, gave the cast characters of their own and brought the good, the bad and the ugly emotions to life .. so yes, IMO, it’s definitely creditworthy.

Missed the mark

I have to say Louise Bay is normally a rather talented writer but she missed the mark with this one. It's a strange read (or listen in this case) that is full of cringeworthy moments.

I found it very hard to connect with the self-proclaimed trailer trash heroine who spends so much time talking about being trailer trash that you well, get why she is where she is in life. It's just a series of horrible awkward, not well thought out moments in the book.

The author I assume tried to write a female character who was different had a unique background but she clearly has no experience with anyone who grew up like that and has no idea what she's talking about. It was just so poorly written and even worse, I have to blame the editor for allowing the glaring problems go to print in the first place.

I mean did nobody from the writing and editing process, alpha readers, or whoever not think that maybe just maybe it might be a bad idea to have a female lead who spends like 90% of her time referring to her trailer trash background? I mean seriously, nobody thought to mention this?

Thanks but no thanks to Mr. Knightsbridge. I think this is one book I'll be returning and I may have to think twice and buying another book from this author.

They say write what you know for a reason. Maybe that's some advice the author in the future might want to stick with.

Loved my journey to the London jewelry world

I love my journeys to London. Louise Bay takes me “across the pond” to places I’ve only ever dreamed of and with completely dreamy Brits. I loved this taste of the jewelry world and I to dysfunctional families.

Holly is a strong heroine but she doesn’t recognize how enabling she has become. Her sister, Autumn, has grown up to be an independent woman, thankful for everything her sister has done for her. But she also realizes it’s Holly’s time. And Dexter is “the one”. Dexter has some unresolved issues surrounding a betrayal by his brother following the death of his parents as a young man. His admiration of and love for Holly opens doors for him.

Fighting for what you want, you deserve, is a lesson they both learn. And the peace it brings is transforming.

And I am an absolute Shaneiak so I adored this narration by both narrators.

Double Sexy!

Dexter and Shane East give a double whammy in sexy! Nobody narrates the sexy like Shane East. I loved Dexter in this story. I loved the playful sexy dialog between Dexter and Holly. The story and plot created a beautiful love story. The only complaint I had and have had with many female characters is their reluctance to accept the generous nature of their love interests. They admire them for their wealth, but cringe or become insulted when they offer to help them or offer to buy them something. That's antithetical. Otherwise, I loved Holly's dedication to her family. A great read!

Love,love, love Mr. Knightbridge!

Louise has done it again. I fell in love with Dexter and Holly and love seeing Beck and Stella (Mr. Mayfair) again. Their love story is sweet, steamy and low angst, just the way I like it. Anxiously awaiting Gabriel’s story. And Vanessa Edwin and Shane East were absolutely perfect!!

Loved it

Dexter Daniels and Hollie Lumen intrigued me from the first to the last chapter and I was fully invested in the story that Louise Bay wove.

Having been badly burned in the past, Dexter is focused on his business, rather than looking for love. He is a rich, powerful, determined man; he gets what and who he wants, when he wants. Both Dexter and Hollie are independent and strong characters and I found them likeable and easy to relate to.

Hollie makes me laugh, she’s feisty,sassy and there is just so much humour in her and some of the best moments throughout the book are when she calls Dexter out on his behaviour. She is determined to rescue her knight in shining armour from himself, even as he comes to her rescue time and again. For these two to make a success as a couple there was plenty of give and take required from both of them.

I loved both Dexter and Hollie, separately and particularly as a couple, their connection was intense and you could feel the air sizzle between them. Not only was it steamy but it is an emotional read that will get to you on a number of levels. They both come from two completely different worlds and at times my heart broke for both of them but through it all I was cheering that they would get the happily ever after that they both deserved.
