The living seek forgiveness. The dead seek revenge.

A first love.
A last breath.
A haunting past.

Armed with a sinful past and an equally sinful body, Jackson Knight absolves his vow of celibacy to pursue Sergeant Monaghan’s unsuspecting—older—housekeeper.

Ryn Middleton, on the cusp of turning forty with a snarky daughter, a killer dog, and an abusive ex-husband, finds Jackson’s advances humorous and unbelievable. After intense negotiations including Vera Wang, Ed Sheeran, and sex four times a day, Ryn accepts Jackson’s marriage proposal on their first date.

What could possibly go wrong?

While struggling to lay claim to the woman of the dreams he never had, Jackson is forced to deal with a grief-stricken Jillian trying to hold on to her past without letting go of her future—the doctor who took her heart and the Sergeant who gave her a new one.

Beyond the hope for light, lies the middle of darkness, the illusion of truth, and a haunting past.


★★★★★ 5 Stars ★★★★★

Seriously I have no words to describe the emotions that I felt whilst reading this book, speechless!

“I don’t think there are enough stars in the sky to count how many times a day I fall in love with you all over again.”

Middle of Knight follows directly on from the mighty cliffhanger and unanswered questions from book 1 End of Day, and was chock full of the same suspense, humour, emotion, sex and drama – but with so much more.

We not only had the pleasure and heartache of reading Jillian’s two great loves, but we had the added bonus of falling more in love with her twin brother, Jackson.

“Life was nothing if not unimaginable.”

Jackson is a computer geek with tattoos and a body trained to kill, but he also has a penchant for the older woman, and in this case he falls for the 40 year old cleaning lady from next door. Ryn is so far removed from the crazy goings on in Jack and Jill’s life, she was such a refreshing addition to the story, a sweet normal lady with the same insecurities that we all have, especially since she finds herself the centre of attention from the hottest guy she has ever known and is left wondering what he see’s in her.

As with the first book, ALL of the men involved were swoon worthy and made me fall in love with them twice as hard. My poor heart bleeds for Jillian, who faces an unimaginable future to match her torturous past.

“There’s no acceptance in watching someone die. There’s only a lifetime of regret from knowing you couldn’t stop it from happening.”

Honestly, this book blew me away – I am in complete awe and I have no clue how the conclusion is going to go, but I sure can’t wait to find out.

Middle of Knight is a dark romantic suspense, and the second book of the Jack & Jill trilogy. Told in past and present, third person POV.
