About Evie’s Knight:
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.
The first thing that came to my mind when I saw the cover is Sleeping Beauty. Do I need to explain why? Because of that, I became interested with the book. When I read the blurb, I thought it's a bit similar with fairytales because of the "curse" thing. So I decided to read this and participate in the blog tour. I want to know what it's all about and how they'll be able to break the curse.
Evie is just a normal teenager who falls in love with Calvin Knight. Their relationship should be fun, not until a curse comes into picture.
I liked how the book started strong. It instantly caught my attention by giving me a preview of how the curse was made. Basically, the story revolves around the curse and the course of Evie and Calvin's romance.
Evie has a very likable personality. She just has some abandonment issues because of her mom and past relationship. It's understandable how she reacts and having some insecurities. On the other hand, Calvin is your typical good guy. He's beautiful, a responsible brother and genuinely kind and loving. I can't help but love him too. There's just some parts where he made bad decisions which made me hate him a bit.
For the story, the falling in love part was fast, which is expected. But I would've liked it more if there's more to it than the two instantly having some attraction to each other. How the book progresses was a bit slow. I'm a fast-paced reader so I was bored at some parts that I almost skipped it. The good thing is that little by little, the author gives you a picture of how the evil witch will be defeated, but as it goes on, you still don't know what will happen.
Overall it was a good romance fantasy. It was fun, sweet and something new I've read. For those who likes such genre, you may give this a chance.
"No one is so important that your life depends on them,Evie. No one."
"People come and go Eve. It's a part of life. You have to live yours so it doesn't revolve around someone else. So that your happiness isn't dependent upon them, their actions, or even their love."
"I also remember not knowing what to do with the hurt once I was done. I had opened up all these wounds, and suddenly they were almost impossible to ignore. "
Launching the Tour with Kimberly Krey -
So I have to say that I absolutely love my original cover. I do. It’s my dream cover for Evie’s Knight. But there came a time when I had to take a second look at it and make a few changes.
The colorless, thumbnail-sized image didn’t stand out as much as I’d hoped when compared to the others on Amazon. And there’s another reason too. We were missing something. Someone, actually.
We were missing... *drum roll, please* … OUR MAN!!!
I really felt like Calvin needed to be on the front of the novel, more than our Raven-haired Ghost. Calvin Knight, our strong, masculine, and ever so hunky hero deserves to be front and center. And personally, I’m thrilled with the change.
So there we have it kids – a splash of color, our handsome Knight, and a new cover I think represents Evie’s Knight beautifully!
