I loved the connection and banter. The chemistry is sizzling. Its entertaining and a page turner. Looking forward to reading more.
A new series from this terrific author! I’m so excited and swooning over the first Knight brother. Sebastian is everything you want in a book boyfriend. Strong, sexy, confident and a protector. When he’s assigned a new job he runs into Ashley after years apart. He gets his second chance with the lovely Ashley and he plans on makes the most of it. But he’s got his work cut out for him because he did Ashley wrong years before. But can she overcome the pain and give him another chance? Along with the steamy romance there’s also a mystery Sebastian has to solve for the brothers’ business. A fantastic story with a sizzling romance. Great storytelling, a sexy couple, suspense, mystery and a new group of hunky brothers. Can’t wait for the next story!
What a fantastic book, I absolutely loved it and couldn’t stop reading. I felt for poor Ethan and can’t wait to read his story. Didn’t expect to cry so hard over what happened with Ashley and Sebastian. Wow! The chemistry between them is scorching HOT! Loved how Sebastian realizes he needs to step up for his family and makes up with Ashley. They are so great together and work so good as a team, and I loved feeling so connected with them. I highly recommend this book.
Loved this story. I highly recommend it.
Woohoo! A great start to another steamy series! These Knight brothers give us plenty to think about! Sebastian is the brother featured here. His dad was once married to Ashley’s mom and they were a family for a short time. Ashley went away to school and has returned to help with a family crisis. Sebastian made a fool of himself years ago.can Ashley forgive him? I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
I loved this book as i love all of Carly Phillips books. It’s a wonderful love story between two people who meet again. Loved it!
A new series from Carly Phillips! Relatable family dynamics and hot scenes. Ashley and Sebastian have a past that could prevent them from having a future. While helping Sebastian’s older brother grieve for his wife, Ashley gets to know what type of man Sebastian has become. When they work on investigating a problem with one of the companies contracts, they uncover information on Ethan’s late wife. They explore their explosive passion while keeping their hearts locked away. A fling while away from the rest of the family suits them both, until hearts get involved. When the problem is solved, they return to company headquarters. Ashley makes plans to return to her life in London and Sebastian makes plans to win his girl. Thank you for taking me away from reality for a few hours! I anxiously await the next book.
I'll be honest ... I was a little surprised that Ashley chose Sebastian over Ethan. Her teenage encounter with Sebastian resulted in distrust and resentment. Although I enjoyed the strength she brought to the circumstances, I was disappointed in how quickly she got over so many years of this resentment. I understand why she felt the way she did, but it should have been dealt with long before now and not by saying OK and let's have sex. I liked the fact Ashley is a strong female character and is there when the Knight brothers need her. Whether it be baking muffins or flying off to California to investigate a business problem, she is there and gets it done. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series and hoping to see more strong female characters. Women are not all damsels in distress and this book does them justice.
This was a second chance romance with stepbrother/ stepsister storyline. Sebastian and Ashley meet when they were teenagers. But is forbidden when Ashley’s mom is married to Sebastian’s dad. After getting caught she is sent away. Years later she comes back after a tragedy hits the Knight family. When trouble starts for the Knight Tech company, Sebastian and Ashley try to figure out what happened. This was such a good book, it easily flowed and great storyline. The fighting attraction and sexual tension was amazing! The sex was so hot and sexy! Sebastian was definitely swoon-worthy! Can’t wait for Parker’s HEA!!!
I enjoyed this first book in the Knight Brothers series. Second chance stories can be a hit and miss for me but this one was a hit. Even though both Ashley and Sebastian made mistakes when they were younger, it took awhile for them to realize that past actions can have a substantial effect on others for quite awhile. It took a tragedy to bring them back into each other’s lives. Can’t wait to read Parker’s story and then Ethan’s.
ARC for honest review with no compensation Take Me Again is book 1 in the new Knight Brothers series by Carly Phillips and a great start to the series...young love, holding a grudge, playboy extraordinaire, believing love doesn’t exist are all rolled into this story! Sebastian Knight and Ashley Easton became family when his dad married her mother but the attraction between them lead to getting caught and her being sent away to Europe for boarding school...young love destroyed... Now 8 years later Ashley comes back to New York when tragedy strikes the oldest Knight brother Ethan, who kept in contact with Ashley throughout all those years and made her feel like he was her family. While she stills carries a grudge against Sebastian for what happened all those years ago she has to deal with him and hide the feelings that are still there deep inside. When they are asked to go to California for the company...sparks fly, attraction is on a deeper level and the playboy finally grows up...but can he change and show Ashley the man he wants to be for her, get her to forgive him and find their HEA or is her heart really a frozen piece of ice???
I absolutely love this second chance romance between Sebastian & Ashley!! I love them together and their chemistry is insane!! I especially love how Sebastian realizes that he needs to change his ways, not just to win over Ashley but for his family too. I fell hard after that. It makes him ten times sexier to me. I also like how he owns up to his past mistakes and how he treats Ashley now. I love Ashley and how she puts her life on hold and comes back from London to be there for Ethan, Sebastian’s brother, and is also there for the family despite the past and agrees to help them out. Ashley realizes the true meaning of home after what she went through as a teenager and it makes me so happy for her! I really like Ethan and Parker and can’t wait for their books!Great story complete with smokin’ hot sexy times, romance, love and strength of family.
This story shows the ways our parents act can impact how we act in our lives. Sebastian and Ashley have to work through their family issues and hope it doesn’t stand in the way of their feelings.
Awesome start to a new series from Ms. Phillips!!! The Knight Brothers and their sister is building to be along the same lines as the Dare family!!! And we all remember how very loved the Dare’s were!!!!! This is Sebastian’s story. He is the billionaire playboy who has always had the women. His life seemed charmed, with one exception….the one who got away when he was too young and careless to know better. Ashley is back for a family tragedy and she has her walls in place. Never again will she fall for lines or good looking playboys. But she isn’t prepared for the grown up Sebastian. He’s learned his lessons well and know what he lost….and he is not giving her a chance to get away. Absolutely reminds me of some of Ms. Phillips earlier writing of the Dare family and quite nice to go back to those handsome, billionaire men and the strong women they attract.
This fantastic romance is first in The Knight Brothers series and it features Sebastian and Ashley. Their past, from when they were teenagers, is full of selfishness and thoughtless actions. It may have seemed trivial to some because they were so young but it changed her life forever. It was amazing to watch Sebastian realize who he’d become. His thoughts and emotions felt so real. This story is full of love, family, heartfelt apologies and some amazingly steamy moments between Sebastian and Ashley. That picture on Instagram made me angry on Ethan‘s behalf. It was quite the shocker! My heart broke for him. These characters are people I’d like to have as friends. As always, this author writes a fantastic story with brilliant character growth. I can’t wait for the next book!
This was a wonderful read that I could not put down. Carly Phillips did not disappoint. I absolutely loved Ashley and Sebastian story. I love possibilities of the other members of the Knight family. There is nothing better than a series. Having Sebastian trying to figure out what happened to his sister in law was so good. This was a great start to another wonderful series I think. Cannot wait for the next edition of the knight family.
Ashley Easton was sent away from home at an early age. She spent her formative years in a boarding school in Europe virtually all alone. Sebastian Knight grew up with his siblings and father after loosing his mother. His father wasn’t the most “fatherly” type. It’s been 10 years since Ashley has been back home. Although she never felt like the Knight house in New York was a real home as she spent so little time there.. a death in the family forces her to return. Sebastian and Ashley shared a kiss one evening as kids and when Papa Knight found out he sent her away. Her mother wasn’t all that interested in being a mother and didn’t object. For years, Ashley blames Sebastian for not sticking up for her and allowing her to be forced away. Sebastian feels as if Ashley is the one who got away. It doesn’t take long for sparks to fly and the two are sent to the West Coast to look into their company’s finances. Sebastian wants forever but Ashley has a life and job back in London she needs to return to. He needs to prove to her that’s she’s the one and he’s changed his former playboy ways. These two make a sexy power couple and you will get a HEA. Can’t wait for the next Knight book....
Sebastian Knight is a playboy through and through. At one time in his life Ashely held him captive. Now she is back in his life and he is ready to show her he is the man for her. Wow what a fantastic read! Can’t wait for Parker’s story next!!

Sebastian and Ashley were awesome together and had great chemistry. I am excited for more in this new series, as book one did not disappoint!
4.25 stars--TAKE ME AGAIN is the first instalment in Carly Phillips’ contemporary, adult THE KNIGHT BROTHERS erotic, romance series focusing on the Knight siblings. This is twenty-six year old Sebastian Knight, and twenty-four year old, forensic accountant Ashley Easton’s story line. Told from dual third person perspectives (Sebastian and Ashley) TAKE ME AGAIN follows the rekindling relationship between former step-siblings, twenty-six year old Sebastian Knight, and twenty-four year old, forensic accountant Ashley Easton. Upon the recent death of his brother Ethan’s wife Amanda, Sebastian came face to face with his past, a woman he hasn’t stopped loving but a woman who is unable to forgive him for sins long ago. Sent away at the age of sixteen, and never to return, Ashley knew her place was with the Knight family, at a time when they needed her, the most, so leaving England, Ashley knew what awaited her upon her return. What ensues is the rekindling relationship between Ashley and Sebastian, and the potential fall-out as Ashley’s time in America draws to a close. Meanwhile, Knight Time Technology, the family owned business, is struggling under a potential disaster. Hoping to uncover the truth, Ethan Knight sends Sebastian and Ashley , well aware of their formidable history, to California in an effort to stop the fall-out and liability of possible fraud. The relationship between Sebastian and Ashley is a second chance, rekindling romance that was all but destroyed by overzealous reactions, and hormonal teens. Ashley has never forgiven Sebastian for what transpired but Ashley is not the innocent in the events of the past. The palpable sexual attraction is immediate and strong, and does not go unnoticed by the Knight family. The $ex scenes are passionate, erotic and intense without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text. We are introduced to the Knight siblings: oldest brother Ethan; former championship skier Parker, and twenty-four year old sister Sierra, as well as Ashley’s former boyfriend Jonathan Davies. The world building reveals the Knight family dynamics, and the fractured relationship between Sebastian and the siblings he so dearly loves. TAKE ME AGAIN is a story of family, friendship, betrayal and loss. The premise is revealing and captivating; the characters are colorful, charismatic and wounded; the romance is heavy and hot. TAKE ME AGAIN is a great start to a fantastic new series by Carly Phillips.
Couldn’t finish it. His character is just too objectionable. Conceited, dismissive, invasive.
Carly Phillips is off to a flying start with this new series, if book one is anything to go by. Take Me Again is such a heart warming, sad, fun and totally hot second chance at love story. The characters are strong and well written and I was extremely sad when I finished the book. Sebastian Knight is arrogant, alpha and used to getting what and who he wants without question, that is until he comes up against Ashley Easton for the second time. Having been sent away from the Knight family, thanks to a tryst with Sebastian, he is shocked when Ashley returns after a family tragedy. Even more shocking, she has kept in touch with his brother Ethan. Sebastian is just as drawn to Ashley as he was when she was 18, however since Sebastian broke her heart, she has absolutely no intention of becoming involved with him again. Sebastian is a commitment phobe and Ashley has no intention of ever falling in love and opening herself to such pain again. However, the chemistry between them refuses to die and both Sebastian and Ashley are once again drawn to one another. Can Ashley resist the determined Sebastian or is she doomed to have her heart broken again? I loved Ashley, she is feisty, independent, a woman who knows her own mind and is focused; Sebastian I fell for hard and fast . Take Me Again was at times a bit of an emotional roller coaster, with plenty of steam and hotness to satisfy any Carly Phillips reader. The characters, in fact the whole family drew me in and kept me riveted till the last page. I am anxious to see where Ms. Phillips takes this series and cannot wait for book 2.
What a great start to a new series and if Take Me Againis anything to go by Carly Phillips has yet another hit series on her hands. Sebastian Knight and Ashley Easton have a past they share plenty of history and they thought they would never see each other again.... Sebastian’s life is perfect he has everything he wants and he has no room for relationships but when Ashley turns up to support his family as they are grieving the loss of his sister in law he finds himself wanting to make Ashley understand what really happened all those years ago. Ashley returns to New York to support her best friend and step brother but it’s also the perfect timing for her to get away from a boyfriend in London who wants more than she is prepared or capable of giving. This series is about the Knight family but this book is about two people with a history both believing love and HEA are not in their future reconnecting as they are thrown together, both have walls that need to be broken down before their hearts can heal. This book has all the feels you want in a great read, it has characters with chemistry and a story that will captivate you so if you are looking for a romance that draws you in that has plenty going on to keep you hooked as well as characters that have plenty of depth this could be your next read. Looking forward to book 2 in this series
