KNOT by M. Mabie
She has all the damn answers. I’ve always been a free spirit. It’s my nature.
I crave control, but with her it’s far more. He’s a power hungry climber.
Her wealth could buy and sell me. It’s too much pressure being the center of anyone’s focus.
She underestimates my desire for her, my need to please just her. When he’s vulnerable, it’s hard to deny him.
Her crooked smile cripples me. He hides his demons, but I’m no fool.
She thinks not committing to anyone makes her more honest. She’s wrong.
A man like him deserves someone who can offer that kind of love.
She promises nothing, yet I feel like a king when she says my name.
I never let anyone possess me like he did. Not before. Not after.
My greatest regret was compromising. I should have never held back.
Still, when we’re apart I’m not myself.
I miss the days when she was just down the hall.
He’s better off without me, and it hurts.
The ugly truth is I need her more than she needs me.
Our relationship was born out of lust and curiosity.
The lies we told ourselves killed it.
Together, we found Nirvana.
We learned it was all a mirage.
I ruined him.
I broke her heart.
I keep coming back.
I can’t let her go.
KNOT is a contemporary romance and a complete standalone. It is the first spin-off from the best-selling Wake Series. You do not need to read BAIT, SAIL, or ANCHOR to enjoy this book in its entirety, but if you love angst you’ll enjoy them, too.
This book goes from the past to the present and vice versa. This book is so consuming; I literally couldn’t put it down. It took over my life for those few hours and I am so glad that I picked up this book, best decision.
Reggie is enamoured with Nora but she is also enamoured with him too. They seem determined to skirt around it. Neither of them want to test the boundaries of their fragile yet new friendship. However slowly Reggie wears Nora down and I love him. I’ll be honest, he’s taking over Casey’s role as my top favourite man in Mo’s universe. There is just something so raw and real about him. He loves deeply and fiercely. I could tell that he loved Nora from the very beginning.
Nora took longer to accept that she felt something for Reggie. A bond that she just couldn’t explain and to be honest I know that it scared her. I just felt for her and I was so invested in the characters, there’s something so real and relatable about Mo’s books. You can feel your heart being pulled in so many different directions. It is pure addiction for me. I love the exhilarating feel after I’d finished this book.
These two have this way with words, they are so brutally honest with each other but skirt around the issue of being together. It makes it really frustrating for me and I honestly wanted to bang their heads together.
Mo has strung together a story of acceptance, honesty and finding your true happy ever after amongst all the pain and sorrow that life brings. It is my favourite of her books to date and I will be reading anything else that she writes too.
