Stephanie’s 4 Blush Review
What a great read! I really enjoyed Knocked Down! It is a standalone romance, told in duel POV’s. It just made me feel good! It had so many ‘feels’! It was fun and flirty too!
Griffin King is a single dad to 8 year old Levi and a restaurant owner. He is a great dad and works hard. His brother Sean and his wife Lilly play a big part in his life. The success of his restaurant allows Griffin and Levi to move into a nicer apartment. He meets the very sexy Ava Milano on his first day there when her dog ‘Maverick’ runs down Levi.
Griffin is a busy restaurant owner and single dad. Ava works from home as a graphic and web designer. She creates and designs book covers and web sites. The attraction between Griffin and Ava is immediate. Their chemistry is hot! There is quite a bit of sexy time, too! Griffin is such a great guy. Caring and respectful. Ava is an amazing independent woman. She is so sweet and loving. Her love of tacos is hilarious! She has a major issue with commitment because she has been cheated on twice.
There was so much to love about this book. The relationship between Ava and Levi is wonderful. They have great times together. There is so much humor and light heartedness in the story. Ava wears these t-shirts with funny sayings on them. These were my top favorites:
“If you can read this shirt, I was forced to put my book down and re-enter society.”
“You can’t make everyone happy, you’re not a taco.”
“Run like there’s a taco at the finish line.”
The story was a bit predictable but, who cares! I enjoyed it! It was fun, romantic and had only a touch of drama. The writing was good. I loved how Nikki Ash incorporated her love of books into the story! There are two other series by Nikki Ash; The Fighting Series and Fighting Love Series that I believe some of the secondary characters come from. I am definitely adding those to my TBR!
