Title: Evie’s Knight
Author: Kimberly Krey
Series: None – Stands Alone
Released: September 13, 2012
When Evie falls in love with Calvin Knight, their young, virtuous romance conjures a truly wicked spell.
Evie always thought her eighteenth year would be magical, but so far it’s not what she hoped for. Her best friend has gone wild, her love life is void, and she misses her mom more than ever. But life for Evie is about to change. Calvin Knight, the object of her fascination, is about to fall madly in love with her. Just one problem: Their love conjures a murderous woman from beyond the grave who wants Evie dead. The same demon who has haunted the Knight men for over four generations. Soon Calvin is forced to make a choice: Set Evie free and hope to evade the wrath of The Raven- haired Ghost, or use his newly gifted strengths to fight against her. If he chooses to fight and wins, Calvin will free the Knight men of this demonic witch. If he loses, Evie will become her next victim.
I really enjoyed the first 1/3 of this book. The relationship between Evie & Calvin was one I that was fun to read. I hadn’t read the book summary and was surprised when this took a turn towards the paranormal. There was talk of a curse but I didn’t realize reading the first part of the story that it was more than just a superstition. The story took a sudden turn when Calvin has magical powers suddenly develop to help him fight the curse. While I finished the book I didn’t enjoy the rest of it nearly as much as I did the first part. Calvin’s training seemed to drag on forever and didn’t interest me. There was a lot of fighting which isn’t something I enjoy reading. There were also a few words that I found to be over used which started to detract from the storytelling.
That said I did like this book. There was some great chemistry between Evie & Calvin. Although there were some pretty intense make-out scenes both characters had lines they would not cross. If Kimberly writes another book I will definitely read it.
Rating: 3.5 Stars – Good Book
Content: There was more language than I expected and a clubbing scene with some groping that takes place. Not over the top but not for younger teens.
