Heartless by Robin Knight Blog Tour

Blog Tour. Robin Knight’s Heartless.

Sometimes love is a three-piece puzzle.


If money makes the world go round, then the real estate market in New York is the engine that keeps the planet spinning. As one of Manhattan’s elite realty agents, it’s my job to wine, dine and do whatever it takes to close the deal. Yes sir, I act the part and look the part. Designer suit… immaculate. Hair… precision. Body… perfection. Well, maybe not quite, but I’m not about to let anyone know the flaw in this outwardly flawless power single.

So when my secret chink-in-the-armor begins to show, I’ll do whatever I need to protect myself, especially when it comes to putting Jax Lockhart — the newest, slickest, sexiest agent at Vanquest Realty — in his place. With the help of my assistant Bailey, I’ll do what it takes to bring Jax down. The last thing I was ever expecting was to fall for the enemy… and my assistant Bailey too!


Without any possible rhyme or reason, I’ve been in love with my boss Ashton since the day I started working for him. I have no idea what this irresistible attraction is, especially when he’s the total opposite of me! He’s filthy rich and handsome beyond words, possessing the kind of confidence, ambition and uber-success that I could never match… or even want to match. That’s okay, I have no problems pining over him from afar while I live my quiet little life, looking after my Grammy and scraping together enough to pay the bills.

But then one day Jax Lockhart walks into the offices of Vanquest Realty… the very same Jax Lockhart I’d fallen head over heels in love with at the orphanage where we’d both grown up. Now what was I to do? Continue dreaming about the boss I could never have? Or rekindle the flame that two kids shared a lifetime ago? I’m tempted to keep both of my secret crushes a secret… until I find out that both Ashton and Jax each have secrets of their own.

Heartless is an enemies-to-lovers, opposites-attract, hurt/comfort standalone MMM romance, with steam, swoon and secrets galore.

I turned to see Victor walking toward me. By his side was a guy so hot my knees almost buckled… although he wasn’t the kind of hot I was used to seeing in the Vanquest offices, or anywhere else in the realty business.

He had a rough diamond vibe happening.

His suit was slightly off kilter.

His skin was clearly in need of a good moisturizer, the kind they keep behind lock and key at the day spa.

And his hair and beard were in desperate need of Francois, my barber.

“Ashton, I said ‘are you alright?’” Victor repeated. “I got a call from the hospital. What happened to you?”

“Nothing. I just fell over.” I held up my right hand as exhibit A.

“Fell over. That’s not what they told me. They said you were hit by a bus.”

Almost hit by a bus. Victor I’m fine.”

“Good, so long as you’re alive, that’s all that matters. Now, there’s someone I’d like you to meet.”

Beside me I sensed Bailey giving off a seriously weird vibe as he kept his eyes down and started drawing figure eights on the tiled floor with the toe of his shoe.

The hot guy held out his hand for me to shake. I offered him my right hand instinctively, then promptly changed it, pulling my bandaged hand back and offering him my left hand instead.

The hot guy graciously shook it, switching to use his left hand as well, happily accommodating my needs.

Victor introduced us. “Ashton, I’d like you to meet Jax. Jax Lockhart. He’s my newest shining star who’s ready to knock it out of the ballpark.”

“Really?” I said. “That’s exciting news. Where are you from, Jax?”

The rough-around-the-edges stud smiled, and I had to steel my knees yet again. There was something about him that I couldn’t quite put my finger on, a certain je ne sais quoi you might even say, although nothing like mine.

“I’m from the west coast. I’ve sold property everywhere from Malibu to Palm Springs, but I’m excited to take a bite out of the Big Apple now.”

Ouch, did he really say that?

How could someone look like a suited-up Son of Anarchy yet use a pun that painful?

It made him brim with a sense of something that irked me.

What was it?

Innocence, perhaps.

No, naivety.

No… it was authenticity.

He oozed authenticity.

It sent a shiver down my spine.

There was just something about authentic people that I didn’t quite trust.

This guy had an agenda, I could smell it a mile away.



Millionaire real estate agent Ashton Pryce is about to discover that to fall in love, first you need a heart.



Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

I found this to be one of those books where the first introduction to the characters makes one wonder what redeeming features can be found... only to blow away all the preconceptions!

I enjoy working out the dynamics in a trio, but this blows all conventions out of the window – and provides plenty of opportunities for the reader to revel in the chemistry between all three of them. As there are also some pretty emotionally intense moments, you might want to think about reading this where you can both fan yourself to cool down, but also possibly reach for a tissue.

A quick, but satisfying read, thank you, Robin Knight!

Robin Knight is a new-to-me author and I'm unsure if we're a good fit. I enjoy MM, especially a good poly romance, so that is not the issue.

From the first paragraph, I struggled with the writing style, author voice, and the characters themselves. Ashton and his insufferable brand-dropping (name-dropping but instead it's expensive clothing and jewelry brands). I get how this was to set the stage for his characterization, but I nope-out when it comes to over-description. Every item on his body was described, brand and cut. But then there was random scenery purple prose that didn't fit Ashton mooning over himself.

So I didn't like workaholic-slash-brand clothes horse Ashton. Then there was Bailey, who was basically a doormat. Add in Jax, and all three were equally insufferable for various reasons.

The characters weren't my cup of tea, so their romance and journey weren't either. I struggled but continued on to finish since it was a shorter novel. It just felt forced, and the random purple prose pulled me from the story every time.

Honestly, it just felt like Ashton was having a love affair with his clothes, no matter who was wearing them.

This is the first book I've read by this author and I'm not sure if I'd read more of their work. I didn't like the writing style. I felt the story was being told to me and overdetailed at times. I didn't connect with any of the characters until the book was almost over and it wasn't that long of a book. Ashton was just a douche. Bailey was a doormat, and then Jax seemed too good to be true. The whole last part of the book was so over the top unrealistic. The whole ‘let's buy the orphanage’ (how will you do anything if you spend literally every single dime you have to buy it), the punch, what happens after the punch, and then finally, the twist with Jax. What the ?!*$ was that? Total bullcrap. It was a miss for me.



I whistled down a cab and climbed in the back, thinking to myself – I just had one of the best blowjobs of my life. Followed closely by – I’m still going to crush him.
