Description

A USA Today Bestseller!

"This razor-sharp, sensual, and intriguing tale will get hearts pounding"—Publishers Weekly, STARRED Review

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

        Starred review from February 13, 2017
        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. Agent: Nicole Resciniti, Seymour Agency.

        Starred review from February 15, 2017
        A wounded covert operative who, along with his colleagues, uses a custom motorcycle shop as a cover falls in love with a reporter who's convinced he's up to no good just as she gets on the wrong side of some true villains.From the first time she laid eyes on him, investigative journalist Samantha Tate knows Ethan "Ozzie" Sykes is a seductive bad boy, and she's "a total sucker for a bad boy." But after years of trying to get a story on the enigmatic Black Knights Inc. to no avail, while becoming friends with the gorgeous Ozzie, she suddenly has an insider tip that a Chicago bike gang is running guns, and when she adds two and two and gets five, she's convinced it's BKI. Stunned and frightened, she misinterprets an attempted attack on her as Ozzie trying to attack, failing to realize that he's trying to save her. But once they untangle that misunderstanding it becomes clear that someone truly is after her, and Ozzie and his friends decide to protect her, despite her threat to their undercover operations. For Ozzie the whole situation is one major problem, since he's been falling in love with her for years but won't risk his friends' safety by getting involved with a reporter. Mix in his new insecurity due to a recent injury that impedes his effectiveness along with some long-held abandonment issues, and Ozzie has more than his fair share of internal conflicts, and his determination to keep Samantha at arms' length is both confusing and wrenching for her. Walker's hugely popular Black Knights series continues with sexy bad boy and secret geek Ozzie; brave, intrepid Samantha; and their high-stakes romance set against a fast-paced, action-packed mystery. A supporting cast that adds authenticity and texture to the story and an intricate plot that creates sexual tension and believable menace keep the reader invested and the pages turning.A high-octane romantic suspense novel with heart-pounding intrigue and a heart-twisting love story.

        Starred review from February 15, 2017
        In her latest and possibly best Black Knights Inc. novel, following Too Hard to Handle (2015), Walker tells the story of Samantha Tate, a reporter, and Ethan Ozzie Sykes, who is the only Black Knight member not currently out on a mission because he's healing from the last one. When Samantha gets in trouble with a biker gang because of her latest investigative story about their illegal firearms sales, Ozzie brings her back to BKI for safety, and swears the gang to secrecy so she doesn't find out about their black-ops activities. The two fall passionately in love but can't admit it, until danger escalates and Ozzie ends up injured. Even then, it takes an intervention by the BKI crew and their White House bosses to bring them together. Walker succeeds in interspersing a remarkable number of well-executed, graphic sex scenes with thrilling suspense, and secrets that just can't be kept. Ozzie is a memorably attractive hero, and Samantha is a very plucky heroine. Walker's fans will love this, as will readers of Maya Banks' KGI; Cindy Girard's Black Ops, Inc., and Laura Kaye's Hard Ink series.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2017, American Library Association.)
