Title: USE ME
Author: Kimberly Knight
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release: February 20
Rhys Cole's life has always revolved around hockey. Growing up, he knew he'd play in the National Hockey League, but when his dream of being drafted didn't happen, he chose the next best thing: becoming a hockey sportscaster for a local sports station. But just like in sports, you win some, you lose some. When Rhys discovers his girlfriend cheating with a stranger in his bed, he walks to the local bar down the street to let off some steam.
After moving her way up the journalism field by covering stories in extreme weather conditions and working late hours, Ashtyn Valor is now the lead anchor for the nightly news. Finally settled into her career, Ashtyn is ready to take the next step in life with her boyfriend. But when he unexpectedly breaks up with her, Ashtyn decides to numb the pain with alcohol at the closest bar.
Rhys and Ashtyn both expected an evening of alcohol to mask the pain of that October night. What they didn't expect was meeting someone who could shield them from the darkness of their heartaches.
Or that their pasts would dangerously intertwine …
When obsession becomes dangerous, Ashtyn turns to Rhys for safety. But how safe are they really?
The game of love always goes on.
And their game was just beginning.
I quite enjoyed this book by Ms. Knight, it's been a while since I've read her stories but reading this made me remember how much I like her writing. The characters are both well-developed with none of the insecurities that seem to plague a lot of characters in books these days (he being the manwhore/playboy/billionaire closed off, brooding guy, she being the naive ingenue with doe eyes who's oblivious to how she affects the universe's population and can't figure out for the life of her why the manwhore/playboy/billionaire closed off, brooding guy could possibly want her). Nope, instead we get two professionals who believed they were each in a committed relationship until the truth was presented to them in spectacular fashion and they suddenly find themselves single.
They strike up an unusual friendship of sorts, but of course feelings will develop. There's some drama that occurs, but nothing over the top or so outlandish it's unbelievable. I also liked that while the non-relationship relationship is becoming something more, there's a bit of suspense mixed in to shake things up.
A solid read by Kimberly Knight, I'm glad I got the chance to read her newest book and I'm looking forward to reading more of her work in the future.
