Summary

Newly single Knight is done with relationships. All he's interested in is bringing down the Count, an internet personality who is tarnishing his family name. An opportunity to crush him comes when the audacious clown shows up at the Kings of Hell MC clubhouse to film for his YouTube channel. But when Knight meets Elliot, the man behind the Count, he no longer knows what to do with him.  

Knight has never seen a more pathetic creature than Elliot. He's also never met anyone who needed him more. Skinny, messed up, and a bucket of trouble as thick as tar, everything Elliot does seems to be a wordless death wish. No matter how much Knight hates Elliot's alter ego, under the makeup and theatrics hides a fragile young guy with a passion for history, and Knight can't help but catch Elliot every time he falls.  

Elliot has bad taste in men. Always hopelessly attracted to violent brutes, his favorite is a long-dead serial killer. But he gets more than he's bargained for when he seizes an opportunity to meet the man of his dreams. The ghost is manipulative and dangerous, offering Elliot all he's always wanted, for a price he can't possibly pay.  

Contains mature themes.

Amazing performance by Joel Leslie

This is one of my 5 stars read and listening to this in audio added a whole new dimension. Joel Leslie is undeniably one of the best narrator around! I have a feeling I might just re-listen to this instead of rereading in future.

My favorite in the series so far

The 1st thing I want to say is that I'm often intimidated by books that are over 8 hours long, But the attention that the authors pay to detail are worth every second. I thought I loved Beast and Larrant but I love Elliot and Knight even more. Most of the negative reviews you see will be about Elliott's character but I found him very endearing, annoying at times but still a good character. The chemistry between Elliot and Knight is very explosive and deliciously raunchy. The story was great and the intimate scenes were even better.

give Elliott a break

I saw many reviews for this stating they couldn't finish it because they hated Elliott's character and stopped listening half way. This is a true error on their part because after that is when the book really gets good. Elliott was stuck in a cycle of abuse for most of his life, and I thought the author did a wonderful job of portraying the at times self sabotaging behavior someone who has trauma might exhibit. Also, if you loved the first book and are interested in reading the other ones in the series there are major plot points in this novel related to Beast, Laurant, and the other bikers and would not recommend skipping it.

AMAZING

Another winner for me!!!!!! Elliot drove me crazy for awhile with his dedication to William Fane but he eventually showed his true colors to Elliot. It took Knight throughout the book to finally realize just how much Elliot meant to him but that didn't stop his from coming to Elliot's rescue time and time again.

I listened to this on audio and Joel Leslie was the narrator 👍 he adds to this AMAZING series!!!! Can't wait to download the next one and read/listen to Jakes story!

Wonderfully Creepy and Uncomfortable

Once again, KA Merikan has made me love two characters I find rather unappealing! Can't wait for the next pair...

Why so many 5 star reviews?

I've been with Audible for 9 years and this is the first time that I've felt the need to write a review. We've all read/listened to books with characters that we couldn't warm up to or just couldn't stand. I liked Knight in the first book. He was a smart, interesting character that I wanted to learn more about and I thought he deserved his own story. He deserved much better than what he got.

Possible spoilers...
From the first meeting, I absolutely loathed Elliot. He was whiny, went out of his way to be rude, had NO redeeming qualities, and needs some serious help from a mental professional. He got smacked around several times after picking fights with the bikers then whined because no one liked him. He intentionally made bad decisions that caused himself and/or Knight to be hurt physically. One of the bikers even referred to Elliot as a parasite. He romanticized a serial killer, insisting the killer, William Fane, raped and tortured 30 young men because they all broke Fane's heart.... Even with hard evidence of Fane's cruelty, Elliot still believed his ghostly crush was just misunderstood. Elliot is the only character that I've ever hated so much that I wished him a horrible gruesome drawn out death.

I ended up only getting a little over half way through the book before I had all I could take. I can't believe that I made it that far. My friend managed to finish it and implied that Elliot got what he deserved from Fane. He could have been sent back in time to endure all of the torture and death that was meant for Laurent and that wouldn't be one tenth of what Elliot deserves.

As I said, I liked Knight but after all of the times he stood against everyone for that useless POS, it made me lose all respect for him. He should have been with Jake or even took his ex girlfriend back. Anyone but Elliot. By the time I stopped listening, I had begun to hate him and felt like he deserved all of the trouble Elliot caused him and that Beast should have given Knight the ultimatum of Elliot or the MC.

I'm going to return this book and wait for the reviews on the next in the series. If the next books are laden heavily with Elliot, I won't be wasting my credits. To all of the 2+ star reviews, I'm honestly confused. Were we listening to the same book? But hey, you like what you like and you keep doing you. To everyone thinking about trying this book, good luck.

Perfect way to enjoy again one of my fave books <3

I read this book 3 times already, but listening to it let me enjoy it again like it was the first time. Joel Leslie superb narration made this experience just amazing and perfect. Knight and Elliot are some of my fave characters, and giving them a voice for the first time was so good, each character was like I expected them to be, like I imagined them in my mind while reading the book. I finished listening to it in no time because I couldn't help but keep listening <3

Loved it!

This is my favorite book in this series. I dont know why I have such a soft spot for Elliott but I do. He's so beautifully broken and Knight is his perfect....Knight.

Why are my eyes sweating

This is such a good book!

The drama was amped up incredibly. I felt like the book was perfectly paced, never had any filler, everything mattered.

The story was much harder to endure due to the conflicts with the characters. It wasn't bad, just painful and made me sad a lot of times with what was going on and hoping things got better.

I cried at some point too, the emotional Rollercoaster kept me hooked that i absolutely could not wait to see what happens and finished this in one sitting.

These books wrap up nicely too ive veen noticing. I like that this author doesn't have loose ends when the book is over to give you the option to take a break from the universe made.

Joel Leslie is incredible too, im so impressed that its only one person doing the voice work. The way he handles the voices makes it honestly feel like a full cast and im never confused with who is talking.
I'm becoming a fan of the narrator as much as the author.
Cant wait to dive into the next book in this series.
