He Never Misses A Target
Jake "the Snake" Sommers earned his SEAL code name by striking quickly and quietly-and with lethal force. That's also 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 heat, he'll never let her go...
In this red-hot third installment of the Black Knights Inc. series (Hell on Wheels; In Rides Trouble), Walker pairs former SEAL Jake The Snake Sommers and Michelle Knight Carter, who happens to be the sister of Jake s former commanding officer and the widow of his SEAL teammate Steven Preacher Carter. Four years after Preacher s death, Jake comes to Chicago, where his former CO and surviving teammates have established Black Knights Inc., a covert governmental contracting firm.

As if that isn t enough, Michelle has a big secret that will rock not only her family but Jake as well. Walker expertly combines heart-pounding action, touching romance, and sassy humor in an enjoyable roller-coaster ride that will leave fans eagerly waiting for the next episode.

A second chance suspense
Tension and suspense does not only discribe the threat against the BKI crew that is up against having a price on their heads, it is also about the reunion of Jake and Shell with hope of a second chance. They have their hearts tangled and their minds swirling with the past and the present. It is really touch and go for them to resolve their issues and be together.
This is high drama from the get go in this Black Knights Inc. series book. The danger is palpable while the chemistry sizzles between Jake and Shell. There is also the stirring of a new relationship developing which I love.
Once again, Ms. Walker does not disappoint with this romantic suspense.
Rev it up.
My new favorite series!
Love the entire series
Jake is my favorite so far. I actually like what a lot of the people who are writing negative reviews don't like. I like that the characters talk in their heads. I love the humor. I love the banter between the Knights. And I love the government intrigue. This is not David Baldacci or Brad Meltzer, it's light and fun and escapist. I LOVE that every one of these tough guys has a soft spot that makes them tear up,too.
