Goodreads Summary

When Evie falls in love with Calvin Knight, their young, virtuous romance conjures a truly wicked spell. 

Evie always thought her eighteenth year would be magical, but so far it's not what she hoped for. Her best friend has gone wild, her love life is void, and she misses her mom more than ever. But life for Evie is about to change. Calvin Knight, the object of her fascination, is about to fall madly in love with her. Just one problem: Their love conjures a murderous woman from beyond the grave who wants Evie dead. The same demon who has haunted the Knight men for over four generations. Soon Calvin is forced to make a choice: Set Evie free and hope to evade the wrath of The Raven- haired Ghost, or use his newly gifted strengths to fight against her. If he chooses to fight and wins, Calvin will free the Knight men of this demonic witch. If he loses, Evie will become her next victim.

My Review

I was very excited to be a part of the Blog Tour for Evie's Knight.  In reading the book I found heart stopping romance, heart pounding suspense, and all around enjoyment.  There were some parts of the book;  Evie's past with her mother, and an ex-boyfriend that kept being mentioned that I thought didn't need to be in there, but I liked getting to know Evie and Calvin and their growing relationship.  At times, I thought it took too long to get the "fantasy" part of the book where we find out about Calvin and Parker's family secret.  That being said, I enjoyed the story, and think Kimberly did a fabulous job in creating an exciting clean romance for all readers that was exhilarating too.

3 1/2 out of 5 stars.  Scroll down for exciting info on the Grand Finale of the Blog Tour.  Kimberly is graciously offering Evie's Knight free on Amazon, starting (today) January 29th - 31st.  Don't miss this chance!
