5/5, review copy, Romantic Suspense

Review: HELL ON WHEELS by Julie Ann Walker

About the book:

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 romantic suspense and I love a good best friend’s little sister story. HELL ON WHEELS has both. Nate is a complicated and intriguing character and I loved the way that Ms. Walker patterned his speech (I’m not sure if that’s the right way to say it). His dialogue is unique and fits his demeanor perfectly. He is strong and brave, except when it come to Ali. He isn’t sure how to act around her and it is sweet and sexy. Ali is just as complicated as Nate – even thought she doesn’t seem that way at first glance. She is stands strong even as everything falls down around her. (Except for her weak stomach – which was a vulnerability I loved and can’t remember ever reading in a book before) One of the things I loved most about this book was the romance is subtle. The groundwork was laid before this story begins and they don’t immediately jump into bed on page three. They also aren’t doing it with people shooting at them. Sometimes the amount of sex happening in a RS book doesn’t fit the seriousness of the story, but in HELL ON WHEELS there is a good balance. I really enjoyed this book and can’t wait to find out what happens to the rest of the Black Knights.
