He knows everything.
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.
My heart….it hurts. Honestly, I need some glue to put it back together again. Knot almost killed me. I needed to walk away several times because I wasn’t sure I could take it. I love angst and it gave it to me – almost too much. The ups and downs, the push and pull was sad, hard, and yet somehow a little thrilling at the same time. I guess I am a glutton for punishment; I kept going back for more.
Knot is basically indescribable as far as plot line if you don’t want to spoil the story. I will say it will rock you, make you question relationships, make you confused as to what you really want to happen to the characters and their story. At the same time it will make you feel hope, as strange as it sounds; hope for the future, hope for love. It has left me with such mixed feelings, but for that reason, I really enjoyed it.
I swear that M. Mabie is the reigning Queen of Angst. If you have read the Wake Series, you know what I mean. However, I felt that she amped it up a couple of notches with Knot. This book is not for the faint of heart. For those who would like their boundaries tested and limits questioned, I say dive right in. I am so glad I did.
