She Needs a Hero…
Abby Thompson didn’t sign up to be the daughter of the President of the United States. The position was forced on her by the small matter of her birth. Preferring a quiet life of study, she’s content to leave the politics and the international intrigue to her father. Unfortunately, the most powerful man on the planet is sure to make enemies. When a group of armed thugs takes her hostage half a world away, demanding the U.S. government release prisoners in exchange for her safe return, she fears her father’s policy of “not negotiating with terrorists” means she’ll never see the shores of the Potomac again. Luckily, there’s one glimmer of hope. His name is Carlos Soto. And though she abruptly ended things with him years ago, she knows now he’s the only man who can save her…
Black Knights, Inc. to the Rescue…
Carlos “Steady” Soto has taken part in his fair share of dangerous missions working at the covert government defense firm of Black Knights Inc. But nothing prepared him for the emotional rollercoaster he faces when he’s tasked with rescuing the only woman he ever loved—who also broke his heart. Racing against time and outmaneuvering a group of trained terrorists will take everything he’s got. Plus there’s the heat simmering between them which is threatening to ignite into an inferno. While ruthless enemies stalk them, they must learn to trust each other again. Even if they do make it out alive, will Abby turn her back on him…for the second time?
~ 5 Full Throttle Stars ~
Full Throttle is book seven in the Black Knights Inc. series by Julie Ann Walker. All the novels in this series can stand-a-lone. The author takes us on a riveting, action-packed, steamy romance with some twists and surprises along the way.
Another fabulous BKI novel. I LOVED IT! Carlos embodies a hot special ops member with a great big heart. Abby is funny and likable. I just loved the comments that came out of her mouth, which added to her appeal. Both, Abby and Carlos, are a match made in heaven. We are introduced to some new Alpha platoon boys. Oh, I hope we get more of them and the author does not disappoint her fans who have read the other installments, because we do get to see some of the previous characters and where their lives are at. OMG, can we say, no that did not just happen. The author starts off with a BANG and does not let up. It’s a fast-paced, non-stop, action-packed adventure with some very big surprises, twists, and secrets that will keep you riveted.
Full Throttle is filled with humor, action, heroes, suspense, and steamy romance. If you have not picked up this series yet, I highly recommend you do. Even if you are not a hard core or contemporary reader by heart, you will enjoy the suspense, hot special ops guys, and their leading ladies.
