Review - Taming Ryder (Souls of the Knight #2) by Nicola Haken



You met Ryder Richardson in Being Sawyer Knight. Now, this is his story. 

I’ve done it. I’ve stuck a whopping two fingers up at my parents, I’ve made a name for myself as one of the world’s biggest porn stars and I’ve finally found a family I belong in. 

Life is amazing. I get paid to do all my favourite things. Fuck. Party. Travel the world. What’s not to love? 

And then he comes along. Mason George – Back Door Studio’s newest exclusive model and the guy who has the potential to either fuck it all up, or take me on the best ride of my life. 

~ Ryder

I’m desperate. I’ve got nothing and nobody left. Entering the daunting world of adult entertainment is less of a dream and more of a necessity. Signing as Back Door Studio’s latest model has the ability to either ruin or make me, but I made a vow at my first audition never to let myself regret it. 

I continue to question myself each day, but no amount of whats, whys or what ifs will change where I am or where I’m heading. Am I strong enough to do this? To embrace it? To enjoy it? I have no idea.

The only thing I’m certain of, is that if anyone can teach me who I’m supposed to be, it’s Ryder Richardson.

“Because the most exciting things in life always happen via the back door”

(M/M erotic romance. Not suitable for under 18's due to language and explicit sexual situations. *Trigger warning* This book contains scenes of self harm which may act as a trigger for people experiencing similar issues.) 

I completely fell in love with Nicola Haken’s writing in Being Sawyer Knight the first book in this series and I just had to read the next one. I finally found the time to read Ryder’s story and sure enough, Nicola did not fucking disappoint!!! This woman has such an amazing ability to write M/M erotic stories. The stories are completely different, unique and both absolutely amazing.

When I first was ‘introduced’ to Ryder in book one I instantly liked him. He was just so vibrant and full of life. You get bits and pieces of his story but not the extent of it. I had a feeling that his story was going to be intense. This book was so much deeper on an emotional level than the first but still sexy as hell.

Ryder and Mason couldn’t be any more opposites yet so very similar. Ryder comes off as confident and strong, whereas Mason is more timid and vulnerable. These two were superb together. A perfect match. Mason was just so adorable. I loved him instantly. These two men were so fucking hot, tender and passionate.

Nicola did an amazing job writing these characters and delivering this story with such emotion and passion. This book had me laughing, gasping, squirming, and giddy as shit. Ryder and Mason’s story is captivating that will give you all the feels and beautifully written. I am definitely looking forward to the next book in this series. 

I was born and raised in Rochdale, England and have lived there ever since. Being a true home bird I now reside on the same street I grew up on with my parents a few doors up and my sister and family a few doors down. I live with my husband, four children and rescue puppies, Pippa and Gio (named after Giovanni Vecchio from Elizabeth Hunter’s Elemental Mysteries series!)
When I’m not locked away playing with my imaginary friends I can usually be found running around and picking up after the kids (and husband!) and being the all-round house slave. Oh… and if my kids ever ask I moonlight as the Pink Power Ranger.
