Full Throttle

Full ThrottleAbby stays out of the limelight of her father’s political career but she will be sucked in when men will be after her. Abby will have her secret service but it wouldn’t be enough, it will take Carlos to save her and protect her from danger.

Carlos “Steady” had loved Abby from afar and he would do anything he could to protect her. When she is taken Carlos will go on his own to bring back Abby. As he keeps close to Abby, Carlos will realize that he doesn’t want to be parted from her when she is brought back home.

Full Throttle is the seventh book to the series Black Knights Inc by Julie Ann Walker. I really liked this novel mainly because of the two characters of Abby and Carlos.

I liked the character of Abby. She was someone who went about and did her job but mainly kept to herself. She wasn’t really able to live her life since she was the presidents daughter. The mystery of what was her fault kept me reading. Well it wasn’t that much of a mystery as I had guessed pretty early on in the book. But I thought that Walker did a good job writing Abby’s guilt that ate away for the last eight years. So Carlos was a favorite of mine. He was very charming, thoughtful, and of course lethal in a fight. He was someone who would do anything to protect those he loved. My heart broke for Carlos when tragedy had struck him but that was what made him into the soldier he had become.

The threat is obviously the men who are after Abby and they are determined. I thought there was a good amount of action and danger which kept me entertained throughout the book.

Well there is one more book to the series which is out right now, though I am going to take a break from Walker and move on yet again.

Shadow Woman

Shadow WomanLizette Henry wakes up one day and realizes that the woman looking back at her is unrecognizable. She will find that flashes of memory were coming back to her. She will also realize that she is being watched.

Shadow Woman is a novel by Linda Howard. Alright now overall I liked the book. I thought the beginning pulled me into the story with the shooting that had happened. Then with Lizette and how she did not know who she was. I was intrigued but at points I lost somewhat interest in the story. I think what threw me off the plot a little was this brainwashing. It was a little strange. Also I was frustrated as I wasn’t getting answer right away. Though Howard will give you answers of course and I will say that towards the end I was back into the story. I was getting a better insight with what was happening.

With this book it was hard to tell which person was the villain. I had a good idea who the bad guy was but there were other options. The qualifications of a hero was blurred which made that person almost villain like.

I do think that Linda Howard can write a well written suspense romance novel and I am looking forward to reading from from her.
