Julie Ann Walker finally gives fans the book they have been waiting impatiently for featuring beloved hero Ethan “Ozzie” Sykes.  Wild Ride is well, a Wild Ride from start to finish.  Ozzie has always been the sarcastic, funny guy with a heart of gold.  He has appealed to me and many others since the beginning of the Black Knight’s Inc. series.  Wild Ride is book nine so it’s been a bit of a wait and well worth it. Reporter Samantha Tate is the perfect woman to wrangle Ozzie and steal his heart.  I love books where the hero and heroine have chemistry in the bedroom and these two do but what I like more is their humorous yet serious banter.

Ozzie and Samantha are both dedicated to their jobs and unfortunately that puts them at odds since Ozzie is supposed to keep Samantha from discovering the real work Black Knight’s Inc. does.  Thankfully, life sometimes forces people to confront their feelings and evaluate what is important in life.

Samantha is hysterically funny at the beginning when she…I don’t want to give anything away so I will just say she is electrifyingly determined to save her own butt. Ms. Walker knows how to throw her characters into a serious situation and make it funny without losing the intensity in Wild Ride.

The suspense plot in Wild Ride is great but the exploration of Ozzie and Samantha’s interpersonal relationship steals the show. Wild Ride has the right stuff! Wild Ride is a hold on to the seat of your pants and your heart read!  Walker can always be counted on to keep you entertained throughout her books and keep you coming back for more.  Nine books down in the Black Knight’s Inc. series and I for one am looking forward to more.

Secret Service Agent Penni DePaul has a secret she needs to share with Black Knights Inc. operator Dan Currington.  If she wants to find him fast she is going to have to travel across the globe.  Dan “The Man” Currington has finally found his way out of the bottle following the horrific death of his wife and child. He’s back at work and on a mission to find a rogue CIA agent selling government secrets.


When Penni DePaul lands high in the Mountains of Peru she finds herself in the middle of a dangerous government operation.  She found “The Man” she was looking for, now together they must fight to survive in a deadly game of cat and mouse.


Too Hard to Handle is another entertaining read from Author Julie Ann Walker.  As an avid reader of the series I’ve been worried about Dan since book one when he lost his loved ones.  I really enjoyed the character of Penni and liked the thought of her being the woman for Dan.  They have excellent chemistry in the bedroom and in life or death situations.


As always I enjoyed Ms. Walker’s secondary characters.  Black Knights Inc. is a family organization and it feels like returning to family when a new book comes out. If you’re looking for action and romance you can always find it in Walker’s work.

Black Knights Inc. #6A NEW YORK TIMES AND USA TODAY BEST SELLING NOVEL Black Knights Inc.-Behind the façade of their tricked-out motorcycle shop is an elite special ops team assigned the jobs too hot for anyone else to handle. Only a crisis could persuade Delilah Fairchild to abandon her beloved biker bar, let alone ask Black Knights Inc. operator Bryan

Delilah Fairchild is still reeling from the shootout at her bar that left one of her patrons dead.  The last thing she wants to do is ask Bryan “Mac” McMillan for help. When her uncle goes missing, Delilah has little choice but to ask the Black Knights for help finding him.


Black Knight operator Bryan McMillan can’t figure out why the local barkeep Delilah Fairchild gets under his skin so badly.  When Delilah comes to him and his friends for help he is propelled into action. It doesn’t take long for them to realize that there is more to Delilah’s uncle than meets the eye. Will they escape danger and find love in the process?


Hell For Leather is full of edge-of-your-seat action and heart racing romance.  Julie Ann Walker out does herself in the sixth installment of the Black Knights Inc. series.  Mac and Delilah really turn up the heat making the pages sizzle.  The suspense in Hell For Leather is top-notch!  Some of the scenes are written so brilliantly they make you feel like you are taking part in the action.  I warn pet lovers there are some heart stopping scenes that had me tearing up!


I enjoyed the characters of Delilah and Mac. Delilah is such a firecracker! While she needs help she kicks a little butt herself! I so like it when the heroines are as fierce as the heroes. Mac is your typical hero but I delighted in his inner struggle with his feelings and his fondness for dressers. I also liked the introduction of new characters and I cannot wait to learn more about them in future Black Knights Inc. books.  Hell For Leather is a great summer read!  After all, this is the season of the blockbuster!

The New York Times and USA Today bestselling Black Knights Inc. series is back with even more full-throttle romantic suspense Romantic Suspense: Wealthy heiress Eve Edens has been abandoned, used, or manipulated by almost everyone she's ever met. So now she lives by 3 simple rules: 1. Trust no one. After three botched attempts on her life, she can no longer ignore the truth-someone wants her dead. 2. Avoid bad boys at all costs. Eve may have hired William

Eve Edens believes someone is out to kill her.  Unfortunately, no one believes that she is in danger.  There is only one place left for Eve to turn.  Eve is wary of placing herself in the path of Billy Reichert but every other avenue has been exhausted.  When Eve asks the Black Knights for help, she gets more than she bargained for.  She believes they can protect her from the people trying to kill her but how is she supposed to protect her heart from Billy?


“Wild” Bill Reichert is known for his ability to diffuse the most complicated explosives.  However, when Eve Edens, his little sister’s best friend, comes to the Black Knights for help he is suddenly caught off guard.  He may not want to like Eve but he can’t hide from the feelings she inspires.  Billy isn’t about to let anything happen to Eve. But will she be a danger to his heart?


Walker keeps her Black Knights Inc. series fresh and wild with the fifth novel, Born Wild.  I’ve been waiting to learn more about Eve and Billy since book two of the series, In Rides Trouble. I was not disappointed as their story unfolds in Born Wild. Eve is a strong woman who has worked hard for her independence; therefore, asking for help is not an easy thing.  Billy may want to ignore the chemistry boiling between them but close quarters is making that difficult.  I love the banter between these two.  Born Wild features plenty of sensual scenes and action-packed sequences at which Ms. Walker excels.
