The hero we've all been waiting for…
Ethan "Ozzie" Sykes
Former Navy SEAL
Underground operator for Black Knights Inc., the covert government defense firm disguised as a custom motorcycle shop
In a black-on-black international mission that went seriously sideways, Ozzie was badly injured—now he's stuck at BKI headquarters in Chicago, champing at the bit to get out into the field again. To his disgust, he's tasked with distracting Chicago Tribune ace reporter Samantha Tate, who's been trying to dig up the dirt on BKI for years. Turns out Samantha's beauty, intelligence and sense of humor are a seriously big distraction, and Ozzie's losing his desire to keep her at bay.
Ozzie's tired of hiding, and Samantha may be the best—and worst—person to share his secrets with...
"A nail-biter from start to finish". —Publishers Weekly for Too Hard to Handle
The thrilling ninth installment in Walker's Black Knights Inc. contemporary series (after Too Hard to Handle) is her best yet. Ethan "Ozzie" Sykes is a computer whiz, a member of a custom motorcycle business, and a rock-solid special ops expert whose difficult childhood left him doubting anyone could ever love him. Determined journalist Samantha Tate is a tough investigative reporter for the Chicago Tribune; deep down she's a damaged little girl looking to avenge her father's murder. Ozzie and Samantha spend years trying to ignore their attraction to each other until it bursts into a flame neither of them can ignore. But their happily-ever-after is far from assured when a rival motorcycle gang decides that Samantha knows too much about their inner workings to live. Ozzie tries to keep her safe and protect his heart, but risks abound. Walker writes super-sexy alpha heroes and feisty heroines whom readers will cheer for. This razor-sharp, sensual, and intriguing tale will get hearts pounding.
The black knight series
I liked the whole series. This was my favorite of the series
I enjoyed Ozzie and Samantha's story! I also I think Ozzie is adorable but what I enjoyed even more is how well written it is! I didn't find one editing mistake (pet peeve). The way the words flowed smoothly, like I didn't have to read a line 2 or 3 times to understand it. The descriptive words were not out of this lifetime type vocabulary. Amazing. The action was just enough, the hero/heroine balance was perfect, and the wit they both have. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
This is book #9, in the heart stopping Black Knights Inc. series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment and understanding, I recommend reading this series in order.
Ethan AKA "Ozzie" has been talking to a reporter. Shocker. With his good looks and brilliant mind, he could make literally any woman fall at his feet. So why this reporter? He is not entirely sure either. He only knows he likes that her mind works at full speed, and her look are not a turn off either.
Samantha knows there is more going on at BKI, and she is determined to find out. She does not expect to feel the warmth of Ozzie's protection, or that it would make her want more. Will their friendship be over when he finds out she is on a story?
This long awaited book was worth every page. I eagerly read this story and could not put the book down. It was just a great read from the heart-pounding start to finish!
