My review of Black Knight

Black Knight by Rina Kent

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Not at all what I expected from Xander and Kim!




I have been waiting for Xander and Kimโ€™s story since Deviant King when Elsa befriended Kim on her first day of school at Royal Elite. Elsa saw a kindred soul in Kim, someone who was doing her best not to be noticed and was lonely like her. Though Elsa was targeted by Aiden and the rest of the four horsemen (the Kings of the school and the teamโ€™s football heros). It soon became apparent that Kimberly used to be in with those people but something occurred to change things and now she was hated at the school and Xander Knight who lives across the street from her was her main bully.

Once Elsa began dating Aiden, Kim was sort of accepted into their group, in that Elsa insisted Kimberly come with wherever she was invited. So Kim started attending Ronanโ€™s parties, as well as the weekly football games where they all get together in the theatre room in Aidenโ€™s house to watch his cousinโ€™s pro team play on the big screen.

Ronan accepted Kim and was friendly to her but Xander wouldnโ€™t talk to her unless it was to say something mean and it seemed that she would never be forgiven for what she did seven years ago. I wondered throughout the last few books what it was that Kim could have done that was so bad. I am not sure if I was disappointed or not in this book and the revelations.



I know that there was a lot more angst in this book than I expected and I didnโ€™t really like that too much. Both Xander and Kim are very broken and it isnโ€™t because of what Kim did when they were eleven. Both of them have awful parents that have really messed with their minds. Kim is basically a mother to her younger brother because her Mother canโ€™t be bothered to do anything motherly.

At one point during the previous books I thought that maybe her brother Kirian was her and Xanderโ€™s child and Xander hated her for letting her parents claim him as theirs. However, I realized that wasnโ€™t possible when I found out Kirian was too old and Kim would have had to have been ten or eleven when she had him. Though I do think that would have been a great story, if Kirian would have been younger.

One thing I really liked about this book, as well as the others is the supporting characters. I love the four horsemen. Xander is known as the horseman war which is fitting because he is full of anger. Ronan is a great guy in this one and he sets out to make Xander jealous throughout the book by dating Kim. Aiden and Cole even jump in to help a few times to try to get Xander to make a move or at least do something different.

I wonโ€™t give away the strife between Xander and Kim because it all came as quite a big surprise. But I will say that they were best friends when they were young, so they have had a connection for a long time. The chemistry between them is explosive and the tension is high. I loved the romance and the steamy intimate scenes. Great book, but a bit too much angst to give it 5 stars. So I will stick with 4.



I voluntarily read & reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts & opinions are my own.
