Sexiest Dad Alive
Life isn’t a fairytale. Sometimes you have to fight for happily ever after. And sometimes you just have to let go.
It was a simple offer.
I invited Isla to rent a room in my five thousand square foot home. Plenty of rooms and plenty of space. But the second she moved in, I knew I was in trouble. I could handle wanting her when there was distance between us, but once we started to play house, all my pent up desire started knocking down walls.
That was my first mistake of many.
The private investigator I hired to track down my ex found her not far from where I live. I should have locked my past behind me, but something urged me to find her. I’m glad I did. But our union left me with a situation to be reckoned with.
When a new fire is lit and old flames rekindle, one will have to burn out.
The decisions I’ll have to make won’t be easy.
No matter what I choose, my heart will break.

An Emotional Romance Well Worth the Read! Note: This review contains NO spoilers Okay... After some time to just absorb what happened in this book, I am just emotional about it...haha! Anyways, in this third book of the Knight Fashion series, the focus of this story is on Josh and Isla...of course, they are friends with Nathan and Olivia. You will find many crossovers of characters in the series since their "lives" are all so intertwined with each other. Well, that's what happens when they all work for the same company, in the same business...haha! So... Their story opens well enough... after the second book, Sexiest Couple Alive, their friendship (and attraction) continues to grow. We get some "flashbacks" of past events of the first two books. I really liked that, especially when recalling those events, and giving me that moment of, "oh yeah!" LOL! Okay! All goes well enough then events from the past just had to catch up to them, in particular Josh. I love M. Clarke's knack to tug at those "heart strings" that make her stories so emotional and heart wrenching. Her world building and character development throws you in a loop when these stories feel so real. Well, a lot of times, these contemporary stories do feel so real since people can relate in one way or another. But, overall, M. Clarke creates these deeply emotional rollercoaster ride of a romance that its soul of it all is that "love can conquer all." I am just glad that this time, I didn't get all teary eyed and blubbered like a romanctic idiot because I got so involved with these characters! LOL! But... How can you not fall in love with these stories of hers! With each page turn, their lives developed in such a way that it was not hard to make the connections of the development of the storyline/theme. I look forward to the next chapter in the lives of these Knight Fashion models! Who's next? Hmmm... I think Emma should have her story....eventually...Haha! Moreover, I would highly recommend reading the series in order: (1) Sexiest Man Alive, (2) Sexiest Couple Alive, (3) Sexiest Dad Alive. The Something Great series would also be a great series to read since this series is a spin-off, an extension, of that series! Just saying...
Sexiest Dad Alive By: M. Clarke 4 Star Review by Kristie K An unyielding ride through a roller coaster of emotions, heart-wrenching situations, stifling uncertainty, and deep, profound hope… M. Clarke brings us to the brink of happily ever after and utter devastation all within the pages of this novel. New love sparks, old flames rekindle, and unconditional love blooms. The third installment in the Knight Fashion series, it is touted as a standalone novel within the series. Though it can be read alone, I would recommend reading the first two, as the stories and characters intertwine considerably. As the blurb indicates, this story has elements of a love triangle. Love it or hate it, the undercurrent of loss and heartbreak runs to the heart of this story. I enjoyed the book, but at times wished that the constant roller coaster could find a section of straight track. That being said, the character development was good, and the writing stellar. The plot and storyline were exceptionally constructed, though the execution left me with a bit of a chill. M. Clarke is has incredible talent as a writer, and I will be watching and waiting for her next release. Kristie K.

Wonderfully poignant, beautifully spellbinding, and honestly raw Sexiest Dad Alive is the perfect pleasure for those who want to feel everything possible in an exquisite masterpiece that will completely capture your heart and blissfully mesmerize your mind. This is the latest book in her Knight modeling series, and I continue to love every second of this wonderful heart-pounding storyline. These stories will strip your of all of your defenses while showing you the utter beauty and endless possibilities that lie within each of us. There is always hope even in the middle of pain and fear as long as we choose to search for and pursue it with all of our heart. Josh has found a life that helps makes the burden he bears a little easier to carry. He couldn’t ask for a better job, and he totally hit the jackpot on finding friends that are more warm and accepting and kind then he ever imagined. Nathan and Olivia have come to mean so much to him, but it is Isla that fills his heart with more hope and love then he ever thought possible. She is his beautiful ray of sunshine, and he will do whatever he can to keep her in his life. Isla never imagined that her life could be so good. She has a job she loves, friends she adores, and living close to her brother completes this wonderful new trifecta. Does she dare hope for more without tempting fate? When Josh’s past comes roaring back and exposes more than he is comfortable with, he finds his perfect world cracking at the edges. Can Josh keep his new happy life while trying to cling to the past, or will he lose everything in his attempt to have it all? Isla and Josh seared my heart with their brutal honesty and heartfelt emotion. They held me captive to a breathless possibility while teetering on the edge of something new and exhilerating. Watching them work through their painful present and looking towards an unknown future with open eyes and a scarred heart had my emotions all over the place. I was on pins and needles as I walked this tumultuous journey with them. It was a spectacular gift to get to know these two incredible characters and see all of the potential and hope they kept hidden in their heart. I couldn’t have asked for more in a story then to be completely and utterly mesmerized and enthralled by extraordinary characters who challenged me every step of the way. M. Clarke is a stunningly genius author in a league of her own. She is truly a queen in a world of princesses. I can never wait to read her next masterpiece. She never fails to challenge and soothe my soul, and I couldn’t hope for more. I consider it the highest gift when an author makes me feel and think outside of the box in a way that I never imagined possible. M Clarke does this all the time without fail, and I want to thank her that from the bottom of my heart!
