He wants a second chance, but she's not so easily charmed.

All alpha all the time, Sebastian Knight's confidence never wavers. At least not until Ashley Easton walks back into his life, wanting nothing to do with the playboy who broke her heart.

Sebastian Knight is a closer. Be it a real estate deal or the woman of his choice, everything he wants is his for the taking. Sexy and irresistible, a wink, a smile, or a handshake always seals the deal. Until Ashley returns at the worst possible time, and everything unravels around him.

Years ago, when Ashley Easton's social climbing mother married into the Knight family, Ashley knew better than to get involved with sexy, trouble-making Sebastian, but their attraction was undeniable, their chemistry intense, and in a moment of weakness, she turned to him, a mistake that cost Ashley her home and her family. After she was sent away, she swore she'd never come back.

The Ashley who returns is sassy and sexy--everything Sebastian craves. She's back for good, and Sebastian wants a second chance. Except Ashley wants nothing to do with the playboy who broke her heart. Too bad his sex appeal makes it harder and harder to keep him at arm's length.

Sebastian might have a talent for sealing the deal, but Ashley is no longer easily charmed. This time he's going to have to work to win.

Carly Phillips is off to a flying start with this new series, if book one is anything to go by. Take Me Again is such a heart warming, sad, fun and totally hot second chance at love story. The characters are strong and well written and I was extremely sad when I finished the book.   Sebastian Knight is arrogant, alpha and used to getting what and who he wants without question, that is until he comes up against Ashley Easton for the second time. Having been sent away from the Knight family, thanks to a tryst with Sebastian, he is shocked when Ashley returns after a family tragedy. Even more shocking, she has kept in touch with his brother Ethan. Sebastian is just as drawn to Ashley as he was when she was 18, however since Sebastian broke her heart, she has absolutely no intention of becoming involved with him again. Sebastian is a commitment phobe and Ashley has no intention of ever falling in love and opening herself to such pain again. However, the chemistry between them refuses to die and both Sebastian and Ashley are once again drawn to one another. Can Ashley resist the determined Sebastian or is she doomed to have her heart broken again? I loved Ashley, she is feisty, independent, a woman who knows her own mind and is focused; Sebastian I fell for hard and fast . Take Me Again was at times a bit of an emotional roller coaster, with plenty of steam and hotness to satisfy any Carly Phillips reader. The characters, in fact the whole family drew me in and kept me riveted till the last page. I am anxious to see where Ms. Phillips takes this series and cannot wait for book 2.

I loved that these two think their love at the time was not real but man it is much more now. The first in the series and boy it is hitting off with a bang loved it. We see a funny, wild side of Sebastian yet when it comes to family he mans up in a way nobody has seen before. Not only do we see their love but there is someone about to take sabotage all their hard earned work. All in all a great way to start this series filled with love, passion, betrayal and hello a man getting a second chance.

This is the first book in the new series The Knight Brothers and what a great way to start. I loved how Sebastian and Ashley overcome the past and discover how much their feelings for each other are not only still there, but so much more than when they were just teenagers. And also how they were willing to work together to help save the family business, Knight Time Technology. I can't wait to read the remaining books in this series and especially hope that there will be a HEA for Ethan. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

A new series from this terrific author! I’m so excited and swooning over the first Knight brother. Sebastian is everything you want in a book boyfriend. Strong, sexy, confident and a protector. When he’s assigned a new job he runs into Ashley after years apart. He gets his second chance with the lovely Ashley and he plans on makes the most of it. But he’s got his work cut out for him because he did Ashley wrong years before. But can she overcome the pain and give him another chance? Along with the steamy romance there’s also a mystery Sebastian has to solve for the brothers’ business. A fantastic story with a sizzling romance. Great storytelling, a sexy couple, suspense, mystery and a new group of hunky brothers. Can’t wait for the next story!

I really did enjoy this book but was extremely short only 124 pages. I wish it could have been longer.

Sweetly sexy and emotionally thrilling second chance romance filled with lots of witty banter, sizzling drama and undeniable passion.... a very promising start to this new and exciting series, could not put it down once I started reading it. Great reading!

Sebastian is use to being able to get any woman he wants, that is until Ashley comes along. He can't just throw out a smile or an alluring wink, his charms don't seem to be working on her. Ashley isn't looking for just a good time, she wants more, much more. As charming as Sebastian is she knows she must hold strong and expect more. Follow along as the two go back and forth in a game called romance, will their ending be happily ever after? This was a sexy new read that will truly get you in the mood for romance so grab a copy, pick a spot, and get ready to fall in love.

Take Me Again is a fantastic second chance romance. Sebastian Knight is all about Sebastian. Strong alpha male that has been all about drinking, getting laid and helping with the family business. Until he wakes up one morning hungover and received news of the death of his oldest brother Ethan’s wife. Ashley Easton is a beautiful sweet woman that has had a hard life with a mother that doesn’t care or support her and that sent her away as a teenager off to a boarding school in another country. Ashley is the ex-step-sister of the Knight men. Sebastian has always had feelings for Ashley but once their one-time encounter got her sent to another country to live he never thought he would see her again. Ashley has been in contact with Ethan since her leaving the states. Ethan has always been a friend to her and continued their friendship/big brother relationship. A friend that Sebastian had no idea Ethan had. There was a lot of things Sebastian didn’t know about his brothers and the business that his brothers felt he was not ready to know because of his no care attitude. After the death of Ethan’s wife, Ashley comes back to the states to be the friend Ethan needs. While there Ethan asks for her help with a business problem. She agrees to help which is how her and Sebastian travel to Vegas to deal with the issue. How long can the 2 ignore the chemistry that has always sparked between them? How long can two people that do not believe in love and marriage resist falling in love with each other? This book was so good. The chemistry between the characters was great. The storyline was fantastic. Well worth the read. Couldn’t put the book down.

Loved this book. This is how you start a new series. I couldn't put this book down. I'm ready for the next one.

This second chance romance is the perfect way to start off this new series! Sebastian is the third of four siblings and they all work together running a multi-million dollar company and are all close, so close they live in the same building. Sebastian has always been a playboy who drinks too much and never has a relationship other than work. He is the company closer and does that job well. Although, after a night of drinking and waking up in a hotel room with a woman he really doesn't remember too well, he comes to the realization his life needs to change when his family has been trying to find him and was unable to contact him. His oldest brother, the one who was more a father to him than his father, lost his wife overnight and he missed their calls. Not only did he miss their calls, he finds out he has been missing out on so much more going on around him. That was his wake-up moment and none too soon. At the funeral he comes face to face with the one. Ashley. She was his step-sister when they were teens and they were close, real close and one fateful night got too close and were caught and she was sent away to boarding school and never came home. She blames him. Oh, these two were a powder keg of chemistry and putting them together you could feel the sparks shooting off the kindle! Sending them together to San Francisco to fix a manufacturer problem before they lost one of the biggest clients was fate and perfect. It gave them time to mend fences and establish a new relationship, friendship, and emotional connection. This family really stuck together and I cannot wait to see where we go with Parker in the next one. Definitely recommend this one! **Received this ARC for review**

I enjoyed this one. I'm looking forward to getting to know the Knight family even better! Sebastian Knight is a bit of a douche wizard. He pretty much takes nothing seriously, and never has, except for his job in the family business, Knight Time Technology. He started it with his brothers, and it's the only real commitment in his life. He drinks too much, and is quite the player. Women in his life come and go, though he's never been interested in any of them staying. Except for maybe one. But that was a long time ago, when he was just a kid. Then, when tragedy brings the family together, someone else from his past shows up too. The one that got away? Ashley Easton is a forensic accountant, and she's been living in London ever since she left the states for boarding school as a teenager. When tragedy strikes her good friend, she returns to the U.S. for the first time in almost a decade to be there for him. She knows she'll have to see Sebastian again, but she can't avoid that. What she doesn't expect is all the FEELINGS she still has for him, both bad, and good, and she's not sure what to do about it. When Knight Time Tech needs her expertise on a project while she's in town, she agrees to help out, even though it puts Sebastian in her path day and night. Sebastian and Ashley's chemistry was jumping off the page, even when it was anger they were expressing toward each other. They have an extremely complicated history, though short-lived as it was. They both had awful parents, and the oldest Knight brother was their only good role model. Ashley forces Sebastian to take a real look at his life and the person he's become, and make some major changes. Not for her, but for his own sake, and the sake of his siblings. He also helps her learn to open up her heart to the world again, and to build meaningful relationships after closing herself off so completely. They really were good, and perfect for each other. They fit like they could've never fit with anyone else. All 3 of the other Knight siblings were intriguing in their own ways, and I'm looking forward to learning more about them in their future books. It appears the middle brother, Parker, AKA Switzerland, is up next. I liked the bond between the 4 siblings, even though Sebastian had strained it with his prior behavior. They were all there for each other and were a team, the way a family should be, even though their dad was a hot mess and wasn't really around. I appreciated this story of two lost souls finding each other, even when neither of them really realized before what they were missing. I definitely recommend this one!

I read this well written second chance romance story in one sitting because I didn't want to put the book down. Packed with heartbreak, betrayal, tragedy, mystery, an unexpected twist, incredible chemistry, hot scenes, redemption, forgiveness, family, a great storyline, love, and a HEA, this book will play with your heart strings. I volunteered to review an advance reader copy of this book.

This is the first book in a new series by author Carly Phillips. This series is all about the Knight family. And what am exciting family this is too. We hit the ground running with this book. Our author did not waste any time getting her audience deeply connected to the characters. She has such a way of being able to draw us in and does it without us realizing we are being hooked right from the start. Our author is subtle about "teaching us' the Knight family Ethan, Sebastian, Parker and Sierra and their ex step sister Ashley. Ashley who was never really part of the family and had been shipped off rather quickly and for a reason you will find out in the book, plays heavily in this storyline. Ashley and Sebastian's story is the main story but Ethan and is is a backstory as well. I adore how this author is able to incorporate this other story into the main story so seamlessly. I can not wait for the second book in this series and to see where this author leads Parker and how this poor guy ends up

Sebastian is involved in the family business. Suddenly getting bad news, more than once, and he has no idea how to go on from here. Then to his astonishment, an old flame returns. He is still extremely attracted to her and wants to show her he has grown. Ashley is unsure of her footing around Sebastian. He still steals her breath, and makes her heart race. Coming home after all this time has made some things change, and others have remained the same. This was such a fast paced story. From right at the beginning you can tell the heat and the sexy between these two. Hard to deny real feelings and this is a great start to a new series. ***This early copy was given in exchange for an honest review only.

Every story you read seems like there is a point where the characters are hit with something that rocks their world and makes them look at themselves and their actions/circumstances differently. For Sebastian a family death knocks him down from the lifestyle he had chosen and makes him rethink things but seeing Ashley again after so many hears adds even more fuel to the flames. An emotional read, Take Me Again is a great beginning to what I suspect will be an amazing series.

This was SOOO good! Ashley comes home to deal with the guy who broke her heart and set her on the path her life was now on. Sebastian has been reeling, never able to get over Ashley, bouncing around from girl to girl and bottle to bottle. When Ashley calls him on his behavior and he realizes that his family doesn't respect him, he makes a change and starts getting his life together. First on that list? Ashley. It was so much fun watching Ashley fight the attraction and chemistry with Sebastian and watching him figure out how to grow up. And when the chemistry becomes too much, it was a heck of a lot of fun watching them burn up the sheets. Phillips has a way of writing characters and relationships that have you fully invested from A to Z. Not only was I cheering as Ashley and Sebastian came together, but I wanted to know more about the other Knight siblings, because you know there is going to be a lot more, even just based on the little crumbs she gave us. So great.

Amazing second chance love story Sebastian has a lot to prove, to himself and to his family. And to the newly-returned Ashley. Ashley was the stepdaughter who was shipped off to boarding school when the sizzling hot chemistry between her and Sebastian became known to their parents. Blaming Sebastian for her exile, she wants nothing to do with him when she returns after a tragedy in the family. Sebastian is still finding his footing in the family business, and he's thrown even more off kilter by his undeniable yet long-ignored attraction to Ashley. He's got a chance now not only to prove his value to the company but also to show Ashley that he's the only man for her. This author never fails to bring all the colors of the heart to her stories, and this one is especially vibrant and deep. Ashley and Sebastian balance their intense passion with a soul-deep examination of just what they each want individually, as well as together in a relationship. These are relatable, memorable characters who feel like long-lost friends. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

I'll be honest ... I was a little surprised that Ashley chose Sebastian over Ethan. Her teenage encounter with Sebastian resulted in distrust and resentment. Although I enjoyed the strength she brought to the circumstances, I was disappointed in how quickly she got over so many years of this resentment. I understand why she felt the way she did, but it should have been dealt with long before now and not by saying OK and let's have sex. I liked the fact Ashley is a strong female character and is there when the Knight brothers need her. Whether it be baking muffins or flying off to California to investigate a business problem, she is there and gets it done. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series and hoping to see more strong female characters. Women are not all damsels in distress and this book does them justice.

This was a second chance romance with stepbrother/ stepsister storyline. Sebastian and Ashley meet when they were teenagers. But is forbidden when Ashley’s mom is married to Sebastian’s dad. After getting caught she is sent away. Years later she comes back after a tragedy hits the Knight family. When trouble starts for the Knight Tech company, Sebastian and Ashley try to figure out what happened. This was such a good book, it easily flowed and great storyline. The fighting attraction and sexual tension was amazing! The sex was so hot and sexy! Sebastian was definitely swoon-worthy! Can’t wait for Parker’s HEA!!!

This is a great start to this new series and simply an excellent read. This second chance romance packs a big emotional punch as Sebastian and Ashley are reunited. There is plenty of drama, pain and emotional turmoil as these two try to reconcile their past and their present. Sebastian was hard to like in the beginning as he was the consummate playboy and honestly, quite the jerk. Ashley was easy to like. She had suffered some tough breaks but was a really good person, strong and also very independent. Once the story begins to unfold Sebastian grows on you and I was really rooting for this couple. I totally enjoyed this book and am already eager for book #2.

I'm a sucker for second chance romances and this first book in The Knight Brother series definitely did not disappoint; in fact, Carly has me highly anticipating the next book. I was so enamored with this story I couldn't put it down, I kept telling myself one more page but even then I didn't want to stop. Sebastian is one of the four Knight siblings and the playboy of the brothers. He's the one who uses women and doesn't take life too seriously until he realizes his family doesn't trust him. Ashley was once part of the Knight family until one fateful night. That night shaped her life and because of that she doesn't believe in love or marriage. So what happens when the one man you vowed to never see again realizes he made a big mistake eight years ago? You'll have to read this amazing new series to find out! Good luck trying to put it down once you start!

Love it - once again Carly has outdone herself. I don’t think it’s possible for her to get any better. Cannot wait for Parker,’s & Ethan’s stories.
