Book Review: The Knight by Skye Warren

The Knight (Endgame, #2)
The power of pleasure...

Gabriel Miller took everything from me. My family. My innocence. My home. The only thing I have left is the determination to get back what's mine.

He thinks he's beaten me. He thinks he's won. What he doesn't realize is that every pawn has the chance to become a queen.

And the game has only just begun.

THE KNIGHT is book two in the Endgame series from New York Times bestselling author Skye Warren about revenge and seduction in the game of love.

I could not wait for The Knight. I was counting the days, the hours, the minutes until I got answers. The Knight is the answer to The Pawn’s cliff hanger. It takes you down a dark path of survival, retribution and revelations.

Avery has lost everything. She’s living in a seedy hotel on the wrong side of town. Her only hope is to regain her mother’s house that is going up for auction.  It’s where Avery feels safe and where she wants her father to spend the rest of his days.

Gabriel intentions are far from clear at the beginning of the story. It appears that he continues to use Avery as a pawn to inflict further retribution against her father. Just when you give Gabriel the benefit of the doubt, he makes it clear that he wants Avery’s father alive to suffer the consequences of his misdeeds. Woo! Gabriel is intense and overpowering. He holds secrets that in the end brings new revelations to light.

The story takes darker and darker twist and turns. Avery’s mother becomes a larger focal point as her diary is discovered along with her secrets.  A Trojan horse had invaded Avery’s life and is playing a new dangerous game. A game that ends in another cliffhanger.

Gabriel and Avery’s relationship is addictive. They collide in a whirlwind of secrets. Avery is a fighter, strong and determined. She doesn’t wilt when faced with the shocking truth. Gabriel is the dark knight, a dangerous force that protects what's his.  I loved every page, every nuisance. The story is tantalizing, it seduces you into a world of dark secrets and shocking revelations. I can't wait for the final book in this series. 5 Stars!
