Blurb: Love or hate. Life or death. No in between. No compromise. No rules in love and war.*

Knight. Party monster. Handsome Savage. Doesn’t do monogamy.
Elliot. Obsessive. Intense. Uncompromising.

Newly single, Knight is done with relationships. All he's interested in is bringing down The Count, an Internet personality who is tarnishing his family name. An opportunity to crush him comes when the audacious clown shows up at the Kings of Hell MC clubhouse to film for his YouTube channel. But when Knight meets Elliot, the man behind The Count, he no longer knows what to do with him.

Knight has never seen a more pathetic creature than Elliot. He’s also never met anyone who needed him more. Skinny, messed up, and a bucket of trouble as thick as tar, everything Elliot does seems to be a wordless death wish. No matter how much Knight hates Elliot’s alter ego, under the makeup and theatrics hides a fragile young guy with a passion for history, and Knight can’t help but catch Elliot every time he falls.

Elliot has bad taste in men. Always hopelessly attracted to violent brutes, his favorite is a long dead serial killer. But he gets more than he’s bargained for when he seizes an opportunity to meet the man of his dreams. The ghost is manipulative and dangerous, offering Elliot all he’s always wanted, for a price he can’t possibly pay.

Elliot is faced with an impossible choice between two men
One alive, one dead.
One carnal and honest, one drizzling sweet, poisoned promises into his ear.
One unwilling to commit, the other promising an eternity together.
And Elliot doesn’t settle for half-measures. He craves a love that is all or nothing, passion that will consume him, and desire to burn him alive. 
Elliot is ready to either get that, or die trying.

REVIEW

REVIEW

I'm not sure I can write a review to explain such fuckery. I'd also strongly advise AGAINST reading My Dark Knight BEFORE reading Laurent and the Beast, book one, in K.A. Merikan's new Kings of Hell MC series. It says it can be read as a standalone, but there are too many things that you—honestly—would be lost if you didn't read in order. Plus...Laurent and his amazing Beast is positively fabulous and worth reading. Laurent is worth his weight in rubies and an absolute delight to read about. However, let's talk about Knight and Elliot. 

First, I'm going to get off track and rave about how much I flove when authors create a Pinterest page to show their character inspiration. As a reader, I love to see this. This helps me visualize the story and see where they are, what they look like, and so on. The Merikan sisters are fabulous at doing this. When I saw that Knight was inspired by my all-time-sexy-favorite-man Jack Greystone, OMFG!! I already knew I would love him. I mean...

HOLY FUCKING HELL!

And this captures Knight, so perfectly!

I can see him doing this.

Knight. Party monster. Handsome Savage. Doesn’t do monogamy.

All because of this skinny, pale, awkward, boy...Elliot!

Elliot. Obsessive. Intense. Uncompromising.

Knight is bad-ass, no question and he is VP of the motorcycle club which requires a lot of responsibility and roles he must oversee. He's also an equal opportunity man who likes to partake with both the ladies and the men within the club. He recently broke up with his hang-around girlfriend, Jordan, and decided he no longer wants to be in relationships. 

He is a huge history buff and the building/warehouse/mansion they own—and use as their clubhouse—also has a lot of history that plays into the plot. A LOT. Knight spends all of his free time researching his family tree and tracing his roots, but finding anyone who has an interest in the same things as he does has been impossible. 

Elliott has a YouTube channel as 'The Count' and he has a fascination with William Fane, the once owner of the clubhouse, back 200 years ago. Fane is a murderer—among other things—but Elliott doesn't believe it and is out to prove he's not, so when he sees a chance to get some pictures, at the clubhouse, he takes it. 

Knight has hated The Count for a long time because he is always spreading lies about his family heritage. He can't believe he is now standing on their property. When Knight goes to remove him, forcefully, he can't help but notice how fragile he seems behind the makeup and wig.

He goes against his policy and gives The Count his number—if and when—he would like to talk to get the facts right. However, when Elliot aka The Count gets into trouble, with an ex, he texts Knight for help and he comes running. 

Knight ends up being there for Elliot over and over and they begin a real friendship with benefits. They are instantly connected and their chemistry is off the freaking charts. Elliot is as obsessed with history as Knight and they work together searching for more roots.

Elliot longs for someone to love him—and only him—and up until now he has done anything to make that happen...regardless of the consequences or what it may mean to Elliot. 

However, the more he falls for Knight and realizes his feelings won't be returned because Knight won't do monogamy, he no longer wants to be a pedestal to be used at leisure. 

Knight thought they had a good thing going and is confused why Elliot is pulling the plug, but when Elliot leaves, Knight goes ballistic trying to find him.

Elliot and Knight share secrets that no one else in the clubhouse knows, such as ghosts, and now that Knight has made it clear he can't commit to Elliot he goes to the ghost of Fane for comfort.

But evil is lurking inside the walls and the first chance Fane has to possibly being resurrected...he takes it. This sets off a whirlwind of mindfuckery of epic proportions eventually pulling more members in if they want to save Elliot before it's too late. 

Knight, once again, must decide how far he will go to save Elliot. Is he worth making a pact with the devil? He swore against relationships, he isn't even gay, but Elliot understands him on a deeper, more intimate, level unlike anyone ever before. Is his pride worth losing Elliot to someone else or possibly forever to Fane? 

My Dark Knight is a long story and too complicated and too detailed to try to explain. It was a bit too long, imo, as it seemed the mystery would never be concluded. It was not perfect as there are several areas of repetition and the story could have been pulled in as it was becoming a bit too cumbersome. 

However, it was very intense, the sex between Elliot and Knight was literally scorching but also sweet and romantic, even though Knight would probably stab me with the thought, but he is a sweetheart and so loving towards Elliot. 

The series is highly recommended and the next book is already in the works and I can't wait to get Jake's story. He so deserves to get his patch after waiting two years. Hopefully, he will be getting it soon. 

You must read it for Laurent, a time-traveler, as he is the best thing ever. The authors handle his language amazingly-well and never falter when he is on page. He is such a joy to experience a new world through his eyes. 

Laurent and the Beast and My Dark Knight, both, end with a happy ever after or, at least, what the demon allows them to have for now, Lol.
