In Rides Trouble

In Rides TroubleBecky “Rebel” Reichert was one of the best mechanics as she could create and build most anything. She will use this skill and her business as a cover for her brothers team of ex-military men. She was treated as one of the boys but desperately wanted to be noticed by the one man she had wanted for three years, Frank.

Frank “Boss” Knight had wanted Becky from the first moment that he saw her but he kept away because of the age difference. Now with three years near each other Frank will reach his boiling point and keep Becky at his side especially when she will be in danger.

In Rides Trouble is the second book to the series Black Knight Inc by Julie Ann Walker. I wanted more after reading the book which is good since that I have checked out all the books I could to continue the series. I had said the other day that I bet this series will be scorching and I was right. The second book is even steamier than the first thanks to the pent up sexual tension that is between Becky and Frank.

The characters of Frank and Becky are people who are in your face and determined to be the leaders which makes things frustrating for both of them. I really liked Frank’s character as he was a hard-ass but he was loyal to his men and wanted to be the good man. What drove me crazy was this deception he had going with this woman he went to visit who had a kid. I didn’t think this was a real love interest but I wasn’t completely sure. At one point I thought she was a widow of one of his men that he might have lost and she needed him. No matter who the woman was I didn’t want her to interfere with Becky’s pursuit of Frank. Now Becky was as tough as nails and a spitfire but even she had her breaking moments which I thought Walker wrote well. After the kidnapping you saw a softer side of Becky who was fighting back tears as she didn’t want to show a vulnerability to the men or Frank.

Throughout the book sparks flew between Frank and Becky which made this book very entertaining to read and filled with sexual tension and yes finally hot sex between them which was building for three years.

The bad guys were by far the men who took Becky and Eve from their boat. They were not very smart with the kidnapping but they should not be counted out because there will be some trouble later on in the book.

The third book is Rev It Up with Michele and Jake.

Hell On Wheels

Hell on WheelsNate “Ghost” Weller was not expecting his best friends sister to show up asking for help, but Nate would not turn her away especially with all that she had been through. He will find that there is more going on and it linked to a zip drive that Grigg sent to his sister, Ali.

Ali Morgan needed help as she knows that she is being followed and now almost mugged. She will go to Nate who she had loved since seventeen years old. Ali will demand to be part of the investigation as it was dealing with understanding what had happened to her brother, Grigg.

Hell On Wheels is the first book to Julie Ann Walker’s series Black Knight Inc. This is a scorching book and I figure will be a scorching series. I have the first five books in the series. First off loved this book. I could not put it down. It had danger, a lot of sex appeal, raw emotions especially guilt at least on Ghosts side, and a compelling plot that I needed to read. I will say that I am reminded of Laura Kaye and her Hard Ink series which isn’t a bad thing. The two series are different though with their style of writing and what is happening in them but similar with these tough men. I will say that for me there is more danger in Walker’s story and I loved that because it makes the plot compelling to read.

So Nate or Ghost as he is called is a man of few words and when he says them he is not loud or really obnoxious. He has guilt that is consuming him because of what he did. He also has guilt plaguing him as he feels things towards Ali and he knows that he shouldn’t. Ali needs help from the man she could trust with her life. She is a brave person with all she had to deal with but it is almost comical as her flaw is a weak stomach and that will result in a mess at the most inopportune moments. What I liked about Ali was she was scared but could handle herself thanks to her brothers training which comes in handy.

The scene with the torture I was expecting it to be bad and had a feeling with what happened in that room especially to Grigg. It was horrifying and I thought Walker did a good job writing those pages and how Ghost was forever changed because of that.

Becky “Rebel” and Frank’s “Boss” story is next to read and I can’t wait to find out what will happen.
