Blog Tour and Book Review: Mr. Knightsdale by Louise Bay
Disclaimer: I was provided an advance reader copy by the author in exchange for my unbiased review and opinions.
Dexter and Hollie are as different as caviar and cheez-itz. They come from different worlds and from opposite sides of the world. Dexter hasn't been interested in anything serious with other women and Hollie's life is a constant dose of harsh reality. When they meet, sparks do fly...but this can't work, can it?
This is the first book I have read by this author and I was delighted by this read! It has the perfect balance between swoon, sexiness, heat, and enough reality sprinkled as to make this believable. I enjoy the different take on the hero's job (really getting CEO fatigue here!) and I adore Hollie's steadfastness and caring heart. I love the way the story develops, no-nonsense annoying conflict/failure to communicate here. I mean, if angst is your kink, I am not about to shame you... but sometimes you want to read about adults handling things like adults (and no, that isn't boring...it's actually pretty damn hot when you read about a man that can use his words like a big boy!).
I am looking forward to reading more about other secondary characters. The only complaint I have is that I read this book way too quickly! Not to fear, because the audiobook is here...narrated by none other than romance listeners' favorite Brit, Shane East, and powerhouse Vanessa Edwin.
Five swoony stars to Mr. Knightbridge!

Dexter Daniels prefers gems over women. Emeralds over girlfriends. Diamonds over marriage.
He might be the most successful jeweler of his generation, a loyal friend and some say the most handsome man in London, but his past means he doesn’t deal in love.
When Hollie Lumen enters the ballroom where exquisite royal jewels are on display, she brings Dexter’s world to a screeching halt. Despite her hand-me-down dress and borrowed shoes, Hollie is even more stunning than the jewelry. Feisty, funny and ferociously independent, she’s all Dexter can see.
Hollie Lumen can’t catch a break. She thought an internship in London was her chance to escape her responsibilities back in Oregon and for her dreams to come true. When she’s fired only a few weeks after touching down, she’s ready to give up and go home. Hollie never asks for help. She knows the only person she can rely on is herself.
So what’s she going to do about the tall, dark, handsome stranger who keeps rescuing her?
She’s going to rescue him right back.
Mr. Knightsbridge is a stand-alone romance.
