REVIEW: One Knight in Brooklyn by Casea Major


Marianne signs up with the 1Night Stand matching agency and is swept away to a medieval land in hopes of spending the night with a truly honorable man. She finds Robert, who certainly looks like he fits the part of her Robin Hood. His blunt manner quickly steals her romantic notions however. With her fairytale turning out nothing like she imagined, Mare has to decide if Robert is just a crass brute or the knight she’s been longing for.

Title:  One Knight in Brooklyn
Series:  1Night Stand
Book #: N/A
Author:  Casea Major
Approximate Book Length:  37 Pages
Recommended Reader Age:  18+
Sexual Content:  Moderate


The beginning was a little confusing, but that’s okay – it’s supposed to be, because the main character is just as confused. It adds mystery to the whole experience. Mare and Robert’s first impressions are outright comical, but the attraction that builds between them is pretty hot. They make light of the situation they find themselves in by bickering, but the danger is all too real and will have you on the edge of your seat.

The contrast between the romantic side of Robert and the just plain blunt side of him is funny, but also comforting, because of its authenticity. How many of us have once hoped to find Prince Charming and get swept off our feet, only to fall for an easygoing Prince Mostly Charming instead?

I really enjoyed the enjoyed the ending. It’s just funny and cute, and so satisfying that you forget to care that the magical mystery is never really solved. Overall there were a few questions left unanswered, but the story was very enjoyable none the less.

In Conclusion:

An inventive twist on the Robin Hood fairytale, One Knight in Brooklyn tells the story of an unlikely damsel in distress and a misjudged hero. Full of snarky banter and touching romance, you’re sure come away with a smile.
