Sometimes love needs a second chance…
I never looked back after skipping out on my own wedding, even if it did leave me estranged from most of my family. Eight years later, I have the life I’ve always wanted. As an advertising account executive, my world is damn near perfect.
Until I come face-to-face with my past. With the man I once loved. The man who holds my future in his hands. The man who’s hell-bent on getting even with me for leaving him at the altar.
Even with all the unfinished business between us, I still love Knox Montgomery. The only problem?
He loves me…KNOT.
He Loves Me…Knot is such a thoroughly delightful read. Everything about this book made me giddy. From of narrators’ voices, the quirky characters and their friendships, and the sweet promise of a second chance. Told from both the perspective of the once upon a time Bride-to-be Emma Jane and the once upon a time left-at-the-alter Groom, Knox, we get the full picture of what they had and what they could be.
When the story opens we meet the on the run bride. She hints at a betrayal committed buy her ex so we’re not entirely sure why we’d want him in her life, but soon R.C. Boldt delivers on the backstory as Emma reflects on how happy and in love she once was with Knox, her first and maybe only love. It’s clear there’s some unresolved issues and doubt as Emma just doesn’t seem to have moved on. And years later, Knox shows up to force the issue.
These two have electric chemistry, still…after all these years. But Emma’s created a illusion of what her life is like as she’s tied to and protected by her best friend Becket Jones. Even though it looks like Knox can and will influence her future, it’s up to Emma Jane to allow him in and let go of the past. Knox is easy to like and I loved being in his head, but communication issues plague these two and cause turmoil.
He Loves Me…Knot is the first book by R.C. Boldt that I’ve read and I firmly now a fan. I’m very much looking forward to reading Beckets’ story in 2018. I highly recommend this sexy, amusing and heartfelt second chance story.

Barely a minute passes before the din of light conversation ebbs to complete silence when a man enters the room and heads straight for the opposite end of the table. I can only see the back of him as he takes long, powerful strides, one hand grasping a thick binder. Something seems so familiar about him… My eyes track his movements, and my forehead creases as I try to place him.
His suit is well tailored and it’s evident the man works out because even beneath the black pinstriped dress pants, his backside is firm, the fabric doing nothing to mask his powerful, muscled thighs. When he moves to set the binder down, his suit jacket shifts and hints at a firm, flat stomach beneath the button-down shirt. My appraisal continues down to his hands when he draws one hand back from the binder.
An odd sensation overtakes me, and a rousing awareness crackles within the air, causing me to immediately grow still.
Then he turns, fully facing everyone in the room, and it’s in this moment my breath is completely robbed from me.
As if in shock, my mind refuses to operate on all cylinders, acting sluggish. I continue to take in the sight before me, cataloguing my observations. The square jawline that used to remain clean-shaven now has a short, neatly trimmed beard of the same dark shade of brown as his hair. My eyes skim over the straight nose that has the faintest bump on the bridge from the time when he was five and fel—
Sweet Lord, no.
As the man’s identity dawns on me, my eyes flicker over my coworkers seated around the large table before I return my panicked gaze to the individual who’s garnering attention with his commanding presence.
He surveys everyone in attendance and those piercing green eyes, framed by dark lashes, scan each person and slowly travel around the table. My heart skips a beat when his eyes lands on me. If I weren’t scrutinizing so intently, I wouldn’t have caught the slight pause, the faint shift in depth of his gaze, as it grows frigid before he continues his perusal of the remainder of the staff members.
My throat grows dry and I immediately wish I’d brought my water bottle along. A stick of gum, even. Anything.
I should’ve known better than to think my past wouldn’t catch up to me at some point.
In my case, however, it seems my past is the new owner of my place of employment.
Knox Montgomery. The man I left at the altar.
