My Review

3 Stars!

Man! I wanted to give this book more stars, but I had issues. First, it ended at 76%. It drives me nuts when authors do that. There are two excerpts from Ash’s other books. Essentially, this makes the book closer to novella length. Second, because it was novella length, things moved super quickly and there just wasn’t enough character development for my taste. Even with the shortened length we could have gotten more about Griffin and Ava’s pasts.

Knocked Down is a single dad romance. Single dad, Griffin, moves in next door to Ava, a graphic designer after a meet cute outside their apartments when her dog knocks down Griffin’s son by accident. They quickly become friends and there is an obvious attraction, but Griffin is afraid to let a woman into his son’s life because of past experiences and Ava is gunshy because all of her exes cheated on her.

The book takes off like a horse of the gate and barrels along to a two prologue finish. There is not much in the way of content. Much of the book reads like a sex manual. Seriously, these two go at in every way imaginable after knowing each other for like a week. She’s letting him get up close and personal with all her orifices and yet she refuses to give a relationship with him a chance. What the heck? I get being gunshy, but come on now. This could have easily been rectified had the book been fifty pages longer.

Overall, the story was good enough to keep me interested, but I just wish it would have been longer to allow for more development.
