Blurb: Loosely inspired by the legend of Camelot, Dark Sexy Knight tells the story of dinner theater knight Colt Lane, who meets down-on-her-luck Verity Gwynn on the worst day of her life. Evicted from their home, Verity and her special-needs brother, Ryan, must find jobs or risk being separated. Colt, who is the furthest-possible thing from a white knight in real life, comes to their unlikely rescue, quickly cementing his place in Verity’s heart.
Colt has dark, deeply buried secrets that keep his smile hidden and his eyes down, which has kept people away . . . until he meets Verity, who seems immune to his gruff manners and taciturn ways. The more time Colt spends with her, the more he longs for her sweetness in his life and yearns to be the knight in shining armor she so desperately needs. Certain he will lose her if she learns the truth about his past, he must decide if he can trust her with his yesterday in order to build a beautiful tomorrow.
This book is loosely based off the legend Camelot. And I don’t really know the legend of Camelot very well. The only thing I remember is the queen fell in love with the knight and the king found out. At any rate, this book had a lot of great steamy sex scenes.
I don’t know for some reason the story line for me jumped the shark when they had unprotected sex. A lot of the things were exaggerated, like his size and her innocence. I just, I mean I liked the sex scenes. Honestly that’s all I liked was the sex scenes.
Wait, no that’s not true.
I was intrigued with Colt’s chronic impulse control disorder and how he dealt with it, or didn’t deal with it I should say. And how they both cared for their mentally disabled family members. I got to see into a different lifestyle that I am unfamiliar with so that was an educating experience for me.
But other than that, the story itself just wasn’t that good for me. Verity relied on the kindness of others a lot. It was almost as if she equated someone being kind to her meaning that they loved her. At least that’s how it came across to me. Maybe I’m wrong, Maybe I’m just too much of a hard-ass to see the real love story in this book. I just found Verity to be too innocent for my tastes.
Especially with regards to her being a guardian. As a guardian, I felt that she have been more responsible. Especially after that first act of harassment at the workplace. She should have reported him right away and had the appropriate disciplinary action taken. She should never have allowed him to keep working there. Her ignorance was just fricking annoying.
And the reasoning behind his falling in love with her just seemed too easy for me. He seemed to like the fact that she was vulnerable and that she needed him. Two things that to me shouldn’t be a reason to be attracted to someone. It would definitely be a reason you would want to help them. But it kinda seemed a bit predatory to me. I just don’t see that attraction.
It didn’t make sense to me at all. He is an asshole to everyone else but you. that really doesn’t change the fact that he is an asshole. Other than that, the story was kinda one dimensional and flat for me.
The only saving grace of this story are the sex scenes. I’m really disappointed actually. The villian’s were great, the miscommunication was lame. Her reaction and not trusting him, I thought was incredibly childish and immature. Then her not leaving when she was told to leave was stubborn and irresponsible for a guardian. Again, she was just too immature for me. She just wasn’t adult enough to be in relationship where they lived together and she was the responsible for the well being of someone who couldn’t take care of themself.
