Synopsis (according to Goodreads):
Sophie Black has turned her back on both her cheating husband and her sexy, enigmatic boss, Lucien Knight. When she hits rock bottom, she finds herself drawn back into Lucien's glamorous no strings, high stakes world of intensely erotic encounters.
Bold and beautiful, Lucien is a walking, talking Viking sex god--the ultimate rebound guy. He is a seductive world of pleasure without limits or commitment, but can Sophie's already bruised heart survive his strictly no ties rule?
When her husband returns with his tail between his legs, Sophie is faced with the toughest decision of her life. How does she choose between the man she vowed to love forever and the man who she hadn't planned on loving at all?
Knight & Stay is a star-crossed romantic adventure that spans the globe from Paris to the glittering artic northern lights, a sexual odyssey of love and lust that changes the loves of everyone involved forever.
After the cliffhanger of the first book, Knight & Play, (not nice, Kitty) I had to pick up the next book in the series and see what happened with Sophie and Lucien after their devastating parting of ways. I couldn't let the story end there and keep my sanity. I had to know. I had to see what was going to come of the couple that rivaled Christian and Anastasia completely.
After the confrontation with her husband, Sophie has cut men out of her life completely. She has quit her job at Lucien's empire and pushed her cheating husband in the waiting arms of his mistress. She is determined to get her life back on track herself. She even returns to the toxic environment of the job she held before she met Lucien, but one grope and comment too many from her sexual harrassing boss leads her right back to Knight Inc and the man leading the company. Sophie is determined to keep their relationship platonic so she can collect a paycheck and heal from all the hurt she has experienced, but Lucien has other plans...
Lucien tried hard to give Sophie what she needed. A friend and a friend only is what he agreed to when she came back into his life asking for her job back. But Lucien is far too tempted by Sophie. He can't shake how good she made him feel and how their relationship transcended the sexual and made his cold heart take a few tentative beats. Temptation gets the best of both and brings them right back where they were before their parting of ways.
But then Sophie's husband returns... He wants his wife back and is willing to fight for her if he has to. He wants to prove to Sophie that they can be the loving couple they set out to be when they got married. Can Sophie's heart return to her apologetic husband now that Lucien owns a part of it?
I loathe Sophie's husband. He's a cockroach I just want to set on fire and watch shrivel. He doesn't appreciate Sophie and never did. He uses her in every sense of the word. He comes back into the picture when Sophie is starting to blossom once more from the depressed state she was in when she lost both Lucien and her husband.
Lucien keeps showing aspects of his personality and heart in every turn he makes. One minute he's a complete alpha male who wants his woman at any cost and the next he's the loving, supportive man he needs to be for Sophie. I fall for Lucien right along with Sophie and feel every bump in the couple's road as they move along through their lives.
Knight & Play is the second part of Lucien and Sophie's love story that takes the shattered remains of it's readers' hearts from the first book and pieces it back together.
