Reviews of A Knight's Tale: Montargis by Gabriella West

Bradley Blackthorn reviewed on Dec. 24, 2021

As noted in my review of the previous book, I did thoroughly enjoy the first book. However, this second book showed Will to be nothing but a flake who seems more caught up in himself and his 'urges' than caring about Stephen. Furthermore, I was actually quite insulted how the author portrays 'gay' men in this series. In fact, apparently no men are actually fully 'gay' because she presents them as being able to jump in bed with a woman whenever they find one attractive. IMO, it seems she doesn't understand what being GAY means and assumes that all gay men are actually 'bi' and can find a woman attractive if they find the right one.
