Being Sawyer Knight by: Nicola Haken


As lead singer and guitarist of the internationally renowned Souls of the Knight, Sawyer Knight is living a life most men can only dream of. He’s surrounded by music, fame, wealth, women throwing themselves at his feet. He has everything…

Yet he has nothing.

Life as one of the world’s most sought after rock stars is tiring, oppressive and lonely. He spends every day being who the world wants him to be, who his manager tells him to be, who his mother expects him to be… all the while fighting against who he really is. Truth is, he’s used to it. He’s actually gotten pretty good at pretending… at living the lie.

Until Jake Reed, his ex-best friend and the only person who’s ever made him ‘feel’, waltzes back into his life as the band’s new head of security. Jake wants Sawyer – always has, always will. Now, he just needs to get Sawyer to admit that he feels the same…

“You will be mine, Sawyer Knight. The faster you try to run the quicker you’ll fall to your knees. Then, Sawyer… then you’ll be too weak to resist.”


WARNING: this is a male/male book and intended for a mature audience only.

5 out of 5 stars

“What is it like being Sawyer Knight?”  With all the gigs, booze, parties and women a guy could ask for, anyone would think Sawyer Knight lives the high life.  His band Souls of Knight is an international sensation and records are topping charts.  But to Sawyer, it is a lonely and oppressive sort of happiness.

Then the unthinkable happens: his ex-best friend comes back into his life as his new head of security. Sawyer has not seen Jake since Jake confessed his love for Sawyer when they were teens.  Sawyer being scared and unsure of what he wanted, did not react well.  Jake, not being one to push, let Sawyer and moved out of his life as well as the country.  But ten years have passed and Jake is back to claim what is his!

The chemistry between these two is there the moment they reunite.  Jake is ready to take another shot at winning over his man and is not going to take no for an answer.  However, in no way is Sawyer going to make it easy.  Between Sawyer’s insecurities, rowdy band mates, busy schedule, and an unforeseen crisis, Jake has his work cut out for him physically as well as emotionally.

I can honestly say that this book had me hooked from the first page.  Sawyer’s plight to come to terms with his sexuality and rectify that with his rock stardom was something that I could relate to.  Now, I am no rock star but I am a woman who had to come to terms with her sexuality at a young age.  Luckily, like Sawyer, I had people to help guide and support me.

Ms. Haken I give you a solid 5 stars for your amazing story about a different kind of love, life, and pursuit of happiness.  I cannot wait to see what is to come.

I purchased this book for myself and all of the opinions expressed are my own, I was unpaid for these opinions.  The picture and book description can be found on Ms. Haken’s website; which can be found by clicking the picture above.  Happy reading!
