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.

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

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...

Absolute train wreck

I don't know where to begin with this one other than to say I can't finish it. I liked the first book in this series because it was a twist on the MC universe mixing in the paranormal but this second book went off the rails for me. I tried to give Elliot a chance but between his obsession with a long dead serial killer and his over all behavior, I just don't like him. I'm about half way through and I just can't finish it. It's too bad because even with Joel Leslie's performance, which by the way is good. I'll wait to see if I will pick up the third book when it is available. This one is going back.

Kill Elliot and be done with it.

Did not like this book at all! I loved the first book to pieces but this book was horrible. 16 hours of wtf for me. I'm disappointed and will be returning this book. The only thing I enjoyed was the narrator.

I must admit I was disappointed in this one...

K.A., too whiny and drawn out. I trudged thru this because I was determined to get something out of it, and I got about 20% amount of pleasure and the rest was almost painful to get thru. If you do another in this series, which I will listen to, with great caution after this one, quit making the characters so whiny.

Joel, almost. The voice you used for Elliot was grading, whiny and desparate all the time. The other characters were very decent, but again, quit the whiny breathy desperate punyness.

Listener, I can't recommend this book for anything other than the continuation of the story, and even at that, I am still undecided if I'm going to return the book. I did get thru it. There are some strong elements to perpetuate the story started in the first book, so you may have to get thru this in order to get thru the next one..if there is one. Good luck. Remember, you can always return it.
