Publisher's Summary

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.
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.
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.

Pretty good start to the series

3.5-4 stars

This was a pretty good story. It's the first I've read by this author and I liked it enough that I've already bought the second book in the series to read next.

Ali is a very nice woman. She's the sister of one of the Black Knights and was crushed by his death. She's very sweet but TBH, there were a few times when she seemed too soft and sweet but as the story progresses she does show some spunk and backbone that made me like her. Sometimes she came across a little ditsy too but through most of the book she was working on major lack of sleep so it's kind of excusable. Regardless I liked Ali. She met Nate years before through her brother but he always acted like he didn't like her which is too bad because she's always been attracted to him. When strange things start happening to her after her brother's death, she knows she has to go to Nate and the Black Knights for help.

Nate is a good guy but he can be a jerk, especially when it comes to Ali. He's been attracted to her since he first met her but couldn't go there because she was his best friend's little sister. He's acted like a jerk towards her to keep her at arms length but this becomes a problem when they find out that she's in serious trouble due to something he brother was involved with. Nate does have what he thinks (faultily) is a solid reason that him and Ali could never be together so he keeps pushing her away. The problem is that by doing this he's just hurting her more.

There's a mystery to uncover and there's some exciting times trying to track down what Ali's brother was involved in and why someone's after her. Nate and Ali do the back and forth dance pretty much the whole time...one step closer, two back. They give in to their attraction but then Nate pulls the butthole card on Ali the next morning (because of his "reasons"). Things aren't easy for them and on either the personal or professional fronts but they do manage to get the needed info to stop the bad guy and bring the danger to Ali to an end. Unfortunately, as soon as things are settled, Nate disappears and Ali can't get a hold of him at all. Fortunately, someone interferes and helps prompt a resolution that ends happily.

This was a very good story. The characters aren't prefect in their actions but then who is really. I still liked them even with their flaws. The action plot was interesting but not so complex that it pulled away from the rest of the story. I enjoyed this story and will be reading the next book in the series. I'd recommend this book. Thumbs up. :D

*Note - I listened to the audiobook version of this. The narrator was alright but her male voices were very growly. I got used to it after a while but at first it was a little weird.

Bad Narrator-Good Story.

I didn’t believe the previous reviews about the narrator. I listened to the sample and it appeared fine. Unfortunately, the sample didn’t include the narrator’s interpretation of any male dialog. It was so incredibly bad that I wanted to laugh. It is like a mix of a monster and Sesame Street. With that being said, the story was pretty good (if you can get past the narrator).
