Dan scanned the tourists as they passed him for one particular face. He had been ;looking for that face for an eternity or at least that is what it seemed like. Dan and his teammate had yet to capture the number one name on Uncle Sam’s very bad list, the rogue CIA agent traitor.

Dagan said that every night Dan dreams of the woman he worked with in Kuala Lumpur and whispers Penni. Dan and Secret Agent Penni had super hot chemistry but couldn’t do a lot about it .But before they could do much about it a terrorist attack took out Penni’s whole team. The did have a one night stand that neither had forgotten. Dan had lost his wife two years ago during a shooting. After her team all being killed Penni quit the Secret Service. Than Penni goes looking for Dan and is told he is in Peru so Penni goes to Peru. Penni believes there is more for her and dan than just that one night. Penni si caught up in the middle of a mission that is about to blow sky high. Dan and Pennui run for their lives with the rogue CIA agent after them.

I really enjoyed this book. It was a fun read filled with danger, suspense, action, violence, and romance. What more could you ask for from a book? I advise you to read all the books in this series for a smoother more complete read. I loved the fast pace and the plot. Although this was somewhat predictable at least for me it didn’t take away from the book that much. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I recommend it.

Challenged
Hot Pursuit (Black Knights Inc.) - Julie Ann Walker

This is book #11, in the Black Knights, Inc. series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment & understanding of the series itself, I recommend reading these in order.

 

Emily & Christian are at one another's throats on more than one occasion.  It is becoming the norm.  The chemistry between them is boiling and wanting to explode.

 

Christian knows he is hot for his co-worker.  He tries very hard to deny it to himself, as well as others.  When they have to work together to get home from across the pond, it may be more than the team can take.

 

Such a sexy and sizzling story.  I love the banter and the heat between the main MC's.  There are more favorites from the series inside this book as well.  Add in another suspenseful plot - and it is a super read.  I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Vespar (Order of the Black Knights #3) by Thianna Durston
Vespar (Order of the Black Knights Book 3) - Thianna Durston

Mayhem and confusion, this one. Plot holes.
No chemistry between the characters at all.

Sizzle
Fuel for Fire - Julie Ann Walker

This is book #10 in the Black Knights Inc. series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  To really appreciate the goodness that is BKI, I think the reader should read this series in order.

 

Dagan AKA "Z" is both a co-worker and frenemy with Chelsea.  They have worked together in more than one company, and trust is important in their line of work.  If only he can turn off the dreams he has about her.

 

Chelsea has been in love with Z for years.  He has never known the part she has played in his past, either.  Keeping secrets has gotten her no where.  Maybe it is time to tell?

 

Under the BKI blanket, we always get a hot story, with a side of burnin' love.  This one takes you over to the other side of the pond.  With sexy accents, secrets, and a mystery to solve - this story unfolds quickly and satisfies with an HEA.  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Fuel for Fire - Julie Ann Walker
Fuel for Fire by Julie Ann Walker is the tenth book (10th) book in the Black Knights Inc series and my first book by the author. I was worried at first that this being the tenth (10th) book in the series I would be lost, but my worries were for nought. It can be read as a stand-alone.
 
What the story is about.
 
The story follows Dagan Zoelner, a former CIA agent and a covert operative for Black Knights Inc.  He is broody and with good reason. Dagan had experienced immeasurable loss in both his personal and professional life. However, through all these changes theone thing that remained constant was his feelings for the spunky CIA agent, Chelsea Sullivan.
 
Chelsea has been carrying a torch for Dagan for as long as she can remember. However, she never revealed her feelings for fear they were not reciprocated. Their current assignment has placed them in a situation where they are forced to confront their feelings for each other. However, Chelsea carries a secret from both their pasts, which if revealed destroy both their lives.
 
 My Perspective
 
The Story
The story was all I had hoped for and more. It was action packed, suspenseful, humorous and explosive. I was pulled into the story from the outset and had a hard time putting it down.  The fast-paced plot, slow burning romance, nail-biting moments, the sexy banter and the verbal sparring held me captive from start to finish. 
 
The story was told in alternate third person POVs, which I had no problem with, as I could connect with the characters and the story. This is one of those times that this POV worked for me as the story was written in a way that made me feel as if I were on the inside looking out. The author’s descriptive style of writing helped to enrich my experience with the story. 
 
I thought the suspense was well done. It was done in such a way it had me on the edge of my seat. I loved that it did not overshadow the romantic elements, which I find to be a major problem in most of the book I have read within this genre. It was perfectly balanced. 
 
The Main Characters
I enjoyed the interaction between the main characters. Their connection was heartfelt and explosive. Their banter was funny and filled with lots of sexual tension. I loved the pace at which their relationship developed. Their feelings for each other had been kept under wraps for a long time so this was definitely not a case of instant attraction.  Their constant bickering and antagonism towards each other were a cover for their true feelings, but their friends saw what they failed to see.
 
Dagan is haunted by the mistakes of his past and believes he is not good enough for Chelsea. I felt his pain of having to work so closely with the woman he loves, but not being able to act on his feelings. 
 
He is protective of Chelsea and wants to keep her safe, but she believes his actions are as a result of him not having confidence in her abilities as an agent. His protective nature grew a notch when their current assignment placed her in harm’s way. 
 
She is spunky and as no qualms about going toe to toe with him when she feels he is behaving like an ass. However, her acts of bravado covered up a deep-seated fear that a secret she has been keeping will one day blow up in her face.
 
Supporting Characters.
 
I enjoyed the dynamics of the supporting cast, which helped to make the story entertaining and riveting. They were well portrayed, making it easy for me to like them and eager to know more about them. I especially loved Christian and Emily who were member of the team. It is evident that there is chemistry between these two, which I am eager to see the author explore. I enjoyed the camaraderie shared between the members of the team, which was fun and entertaining.  The ease with which they had fun at each other’s expense demonstrated the strength of their friendship
 
 Conclusion
The ending as it relates to Chelsea and Dagan’s relationship was neatly wrapped up, and it left me with a smile on my face. However, as it relates to their assignment, which involved taking a notorious criminal syndicate. The leader of the syndicate who went by the moniker Spider has proven to be elusive and difficult to capture. He always seems to be one-step ahead. It is clear; they have been in pursuit of Spider prior to this instalment. 
 
Recommendation:
Fans of romantic suspense will enjoy Fuel for Fire and I am looking forward to the next book in the series. I also plan to read the previous books in the series, as it appears I have been missing a lot
