You met Ryder Richardson in Being Sawyer Knight. Now, this is his story.
I’ve done it. I’ve stuck a whopping two fingers up at my parents, I’ve made a name for myself as one of the world’s biggest porn stars and I’ve finally found a family I belong in.
Life is amazing. I get paid to do all my favourite things. Fuck. Party. Travel the world. What’s not to love?
And then he comes along. Mason George – Back Door Studio’s newest exclusive model and the guy who has the potential to either fuck it all up, or take me on the best ride of my life.
I’m desperate. I’ve got nothing and nobody left. Entering the daunting world of adult entertainment is less of a dream and more of a necessity. Signing as Back Door Studio’s latest model has the ability to either ruin or make me, but I made a vow at my first audition never to let myself regret it.
I continue to question myself each day, but no amount of whats, whys or what ifs will change where I am or where I’m heading. Am I strong enough to do this? To embrace it? To enjoy it? I have no idea.
The only thing I’m certain of, is that if anyone can teach me who I’m supposed to be, it’s Ryder Richardson.
“Because the most exciting things in life always happen via the back door”
Overall, This was a mediocre story and out of the three books in the series it was probably my least favorite. The plot was predictable and the conflict was simple with a quick resolution so it just didn’t have enough angst for my preference.
Don’t get me wrong if you are looking for a book that is full of sex – well Mason and Ryder’s story fits that criteria, after all they are both porn stars. That seems to be where the author focused though on this book, sex. There were bits and pieces of backstory and stuff thrown in here and there, but honestly it felt as if some of those thoughts were just random thoughts the author had while writing that then never fully developed. Did I hate this story? No. Did I love it? No. I don’t really feel anything about the story except I enjoyed seeing the characters from book one and watching them continue to live their story. So for Book 2 of the Souls of the Knight Series I have to say it’s a solid 2.5 star book.
