He Never Misses a Target

Jake "the Snake" Sommers earned his SEAL codename by striking quickly and quietly – and with lethal force. That’s how he broke Michelle Carter’s heart. It was the only way to keep her safe – from himself. Four long years later, Jake is determined to get a second chance. But to steal back into Michelle’s loving arms, Jake is going to have to prove he can take things slow. Real slow…

She Aims to Make Him Beg

Michelle Carter has never forgiven Jake for being so cliché as to "love her and leave her." But when her brother, head of the Black Knights elite ops agency, ticks off the wrong mobster, she must do the unimaginable: place her life in Jake’s hands. No matter what they call him, this man is far from cold-blooded. And once he’s wrapped around her heart, he’ll never let her go…

This couple was a bit of surprise for me because I didn’t knew about their past or read much about them on the group before, but I liked the action parts of the book. The romance not so much. Believe Jake turned out to be a bit dummy not seeing things like the truth all along.
 
I didn’t like Jake attitude on the past and believe he could had tried a little better on loving Michelle, but I liked how he apologized and decided for fight on another chance since he still loves her.
 
I loved the history behind their past together, but he could had come back earlier to try and save their relationship. I liked these two together and how much Michelle loves him is clear for all to see.
 
Best part is Frank in the hole book, and he’s all for the couple to be together and happy. He looked to me like the story was alright and there wasn’t a single thing he didn’t knew.

Review: In Rides Trouble by Julie Ann Walker

In Rides Trouble (Black Knights, Inc., #2)Title: In Rides Trouble
Author:  Julie Ann Walker

Rebel with a Cause
Becky "Rebel" Reichert never actually goes looking for trouble. It just has a tendency to find her. Like the day Frank Knight showed up at her door, wanting to use her motorcycle shop as a cover for his elite special ops team. But Becky prides herself on being able to hang with the big boys-she can weld, drive, and shoot just as well as any of them.

Man with a Mission
Munitions, missiles, and mayhem are Frank’s way of life. The last thing the ex-SEAL wants is for one brash blonde to come within fifty feet of anything that goes boom. Yet it’s just his rotten luck when she ends up in a hostage situation at sea. Come hell or high water, he will get her back-whether she says she needs him or not.

I love a series filled with action and this time it was no difference, but the love story on this book was so much better than the first and we can feel the angst in some very crucial moments.
 
We all met Rebel in the first book and of course are well aware she is in love with Frank but we didn’t knew the reason he was trying to push her away so badly.
 
Luckily I found the explanation was satisfying because Frank is a tough guy and needed a very dark and obtuse place on his mind to made him want and hate at the same time. Its all connected with his past and very sad story. I really feel bad by all those moments he swore not to touch her while both only wanted a few moments together.
 
Rebel is a very fun girl and her story only showed her nature. she was kidnapped by pirates, and they used her knowledge on machines work for them. Of course Frank had to save her, plus we met Becky BFF and another romance is brewing for the future on this series.
 
But for this couple I only have great thoughts and words. Frank’s fear of the surgery was really cute to read and the way Becky finally discovered his secrets was so sweet. He’s a tough guy but very honorable.

Review: Hell on Wheels by Julie Ann Walker

Black Knights Inc.–Behind the facade of their tricked-out motorcycle shop is an elite special ops team assigned the jobs too hot for anyone else to handle.

Hold On Tight…

 

Ex-Marine Nate "Ghost" Weller is an expert at keeping his cool–and his distance–which makes him one hell of a sniper. It’s also how he keeps his feelings for Ali Morgan in check. Sweet, sexy Ali has always revved his engine, but she’s his best friend’s baby sister…and totally off limits.

Rough Road Ahead


Ali’s never seen anything sexier than Nate Weller straddling his custom Harley–or the flash of danger in his eyes when she tells him she’s in trouble. First something happened to her brother, and now she’s become the target of a nasty international organization. With Nate, her life is in the most capable hands possible–but her heart is another story altogether.

I love a good action with a hint of romance and this book delivered a good start to a new series. Great characters and they are all very real, showing the true life of this great agents. They have no fear and they all know exactly what to do.
 
I liked the romance between Nate and Ali. It’s very interesting to know both off them are in love with each other, but don’t act on it because of Grigg, Ali’s big brother and an agent like Nate.
 
Nate is a sniper and his best friend and partner Grigg died in a very hard way, but he couldn’t forget himself and accept the blame for the mission going wrong, but he doesn’t know that it was all a set up.
 
Ali is very sweet and knows how hard and difficult her brother used to live. She doesn’t knew his secrets, but the way he died was definitely connected with his job.
 
So when Ali start to get suspicious that somebody is following her and shows up on Nate door asking for help things start to look strange and really wrong.
 
I loved the investigation and enjoyed meeting the rest of the Black Knights. It’s very interesting to see they pretend to be just mechanics and experts on bikes, but on reality is all a bogus for their real job.
 
The romance was just okay for me, because Nate was really hard on himself and didn’t try to win Ali at all, but she’s very determined and fought for what she wanted.
 
So the romance was not the best part of the book, but I liked the investigation and meeting the rest of the gang.
