Blurb


Xavier Knight was starting his life over. A new city. A new club. The past was gone, and he had everything to look forward to… except… love. That ship had sailed, never to return. He was too old to play the games or stack up the one night stands. Until, an old enemy’s son walked into his club and his heart.


Sebastian Brady was through. Through with hiding who he was. Through letting his brother officers dictate his life. And completely through, with his family telling him who he was. He turned his back on his badge and his family’s heritage in the Atlanta police force. But, he never imagined that he’d be serving drinks in a gay bar and working for the hottest silver fox he had ever seen in his life.


Xavier and Seb have a lot to learn from each other. Hopefully, their growing love will survive Xavier’s past, Seb’s family, and a host of characters with secrets of their own, who all work at the Knights Club.

Story Background

The Knights Club (formerly the Gentleman’s Club) first appeared in the Warfield Hotel Mysteries Series. It was owned by Stony Whitecastle and is located in Atlanta, GA. At the beginning of the Knights Club/Starting Over, Stony is selling the club to Xavier Knight. He renames the club the Knights Club and instead of a private club opens it the public. Some patrons still hold membership though.

This series involves Xavier and his crew of employees and their involvement with a local police family. We meet Sebastian Brady in Starting Over along with his dysfunctional family. Seb’s struggle with his homophobic oldest brother and the shadow of his dead father, Detective Delmonico Brady, haunts Seb as he tries to make a new life for himself.

Occasionally, a character from the Warfield Hotel series will pop up but they are not central to the story line. Everyone who works at the Knights Club has a past and secret they are running from. They are mixed bag of people who have been suffered many things. The Knights Club is their home and the people who work there are their families. But, even families don’t like each other all the time… 




REVIEW
My Rating - 4 Stars!

 CJ Baty's Starting Over is book one in her Knights Club Series. As with her Warfield Hotel series, it is a good, light-hearted mystery.

This story revolves around Xavier's new club, and his new hire, Sebastian. Both men have backgrounds in previous books, but you can easily get a feeling for them without having read the others. 

Sebastian was formerly a cop, but got tired of all the homophobia within his work place. As he starts working for Xavier, who is still reeling from losing his lover two years ago, the chemistry is undeniable, and the sparks are flying! 

They have to deal with the hesitancy of getting involved with an employee, some family issues, and a mystery that takes place in the bar. In the end, they help each other, as Xavier is able to start moving on from his loss, and Seb has never felt happier. Their relationship is tender, hot and super sweet. 

CJ Baty does a great job developing and pacing her mysteries. Add in some nice and fun characters, like Xavier and Seb, and you're guaranteed to enjoy your time in this author created world. I know I can't wait to read the next book in this series. If it's anything like Starting Over, it will be wonderful. 








C. J. Baty lives in southwest Ohio. Her heart, however, lives in the mountains of Tennessee where she hopes to retire some day. The mountains have always provided her with inspiration and a soothing balm to the stresses of everyday life.

The dream of writing her own stories started in high school but was left on the back burner of life until her son introduced her to fan fiction and encouraged her to give it a try. She found that her passion for telling a story was still there and writing them down to share with others was much more thrilling than she had ever expected.


She has a loving and supportive family who don't mind fixing their own meals when she is in the middle of a story, and a network of friends who have encouraged and cheered her on in her quest of being an author.


One thing she has learned from life and she is often heard to say is: “You are never too old to follow your dream!”
