Having had an injury that forced him out one dream of ballet Jett finds another becoming a pop star. It's a dream he works hard for. The manager of Three Trick Pony suddenly quits and a new manager is appointed. Introducing new members to the band means drama!
This is such an interesting story! Jett is dramatic! but somewhere under it has put up walls to protect himself with. Silas is a manager, he's a professional, but he recognises that Jett is his boy and that he needs to be looked after. Told from dual POVs reveals intimately their thoughts, feelings, and emotions, as they explore their relationship. The story is well written, fast paced and compelling to read. There's an HEA 💓
Silas, famous manager, and not so famous daddy, takes over Three Trick Pony to save it from self destructing. He brings in 2 new dancers adding to the tension. Jett is expecting his time as head singer to be over and resorts to his usual diva dramatics. Unfortunately the diva was cast as an insecure person with yoyoing emotions that he didn't understand. That yoyoing left his character feeling unformed. I guess that is where Papa Bear came in but for me the dynamic was disjointed, feeling more like a series of scenarios put together than a developing relationship. Found it hard to connect with either character and the ending happened just as the plot got interesting. I always look forward to an MK read but I felt this was not up to her usual standard, perhaps a bit rushed in writing? Arc via Booksprout review.
I'm not sure how I felt about this book. It didn't take long to read - just a few hours but the characters were developed enough to get the story. Jett was a bratty diva with a life spinning out of control and Silas was the daddy sent to fix it but they didn't know that originally. The situation with Jett felt almost deserved but the outcome was surprising and slightly unexpected. Would I read this again - probably not but that's not to say it's bad
On the whole I enjoyed this book however I did find Jett slightly irritating at times and just wanted to give him a shake. The relationship between Jett and Silas was sweet and I liked how Silas overcame his fears and concerns to develop the relationship and help Jett with his problems. I think there was potential for the story to develop further and I would have liked a bit more story on their relationship going forward. Overall though this was a good story and I enjoyed it
This book was okay. It seemed very much to have a beginning and an end but the middle seemed to get lost. The main characters going from not together to together was literally one chapter to the next and completely jarring. Overall not an awful book but not a great one either.
I think this story was lacking a little of the depth of the other books in this series. I never understood the motives for the main characters responses and actions. If they were explained it seemed like an afterthought....oops now I need to add a line of two to explain why the mc did that. An example is Jett's unicorn pillow. We go almost the whole book before we learn it has a name. Then we get a line or two explaining what it's name is and why. We never get a good explanation for why Jett doesn't like to be touched. On the flip side I didn't understand Silas's motives either. I don't mind Insta love but I didn't buy Silas falling so fast when there was so little interaction between the characters. Even his explanation of his kink fell flat. The bones of a good story are there, it just needs more details and development.
It started off good then fizzled out. The relationship didn't happen until after 60% and it was lackluster. We're told Silas is a papa who thinks Jett needs guidance and a firm hand, and he's just the papa to do it. We don't get anything like that. When you hear Taken in hand, you think maybe some domestic discipline or even spankings along with nurturing and love...Not in this book, you get none. Low heat and low on the details.
Morticia Knight never fails to bring a unique flair to her daddy stories. Really enjoyed Silas. And Jett was a perfect brat. Not too angsty. There is a scare towards the middle/end of the book, but overall a sweet book about a daddy who is watching his boy crash and burn. Until he takes him in hand. Very enjoyable. Haven't found one of her books that was meh. Great author. Great fun.
I enjoyed Jett and Silas’ story. This book touches on multiple tropes including enemies to lover, age gap, and mild Daddy/boy power exchange. Jett is a fascinating character with many quirks and insecurities hidden behind a diva persona. I’m looking forward to reading the bonus story and hopeful we get to see more of Jett and Silas in the new Club Sensation series
