As lead singer and guitarist of the internationally renowned Souls of the Knight, Sawyer Knight is living a life most men can only dream of. He’s surrounded by music, fame, wealth, women throwing themselves at his feet. He has everything…

Yet he has nothing.

Life as one of the world’s most sought after rock stars is tiring, oppressive and lonely. He spends every day being who the world wants him to be, who his manager tells him to be, who his mother expects him to be… all the while fighting against who he really is. Truth is, he’s used to it. He’s actually gotten pretty good at pretending… at living the lie.

Until Jake Reed, his ex-best friend and the only person who’s ever made him ‘feel’, waltzes back into his life as the band’s new head of security. Jake wants Sawyer – always has, always will. Now, he just needs to get Sawyer to admit that he feels the same…

“You will be mine, Sawyer Knight. The faster you try to run the quicker you’ll fall to your knees. Then, Sawyer… then you’ll be too weak to resist.”


This was a book about two men who used to be best friends reconnecting and finally finding their way past stigma, doubt, and danger so they are able to have their happily-ever-after.

Sawyer and Jake grew up together and parted after Jake reveals his feelings and then moves away. Fast forward 10 years, Sawyer Knight is now a famous rock star and living the rockstar lifestyle. When guess who shows up as his new head of security, Jake!

Sparks immediately start flying as Jake has made it his mission to reconnect with Sawyer in more ways than one and he is not going to be deterred by Sawyer not admitting he is gay. We get to watch these two get past identity crises, admitting feelings for each other, falling in love, being exposed and dealing with the fallout. Author Nicola Haken does a great job of exploring Sawyer’s fears and we get to watch Jake help Sawyer overcome them. I enjoyed the book and will continue with the series, I just think it needed more depth. 3.5 Stars for Being Sawyer Night.
