Lily Fletcher is a computer wizard who became fixated on a criminal. That fixation turned into her own personal nightmare. When Lily could finally contact Wyatt to let him know she was alive and in desperate need of rescuing, she made a decision that affected the entire team. Now it appears that someone has guessed Lily might still be alive and is trying to force her hand.
Wyatt and Lily have to start at the beginning to figure out just who hid behind a screen name months ago. While that would be enough to keep both of them busy, it appears the FBI might be asking questions too, and don't forget about the team themselves, all of which brings a ton of action. Action that could have been used as a front for murder. When the final battle happens, can Wyatt protect Lily and his team while bagging a murderer? And what about Wyatt and Lily's future together, and with the FBI?
What would you do if a call made you choose between the career rulebook and your moral one? In Black at Heart the Special Agent in Charge of the Black CAT's must make this decision. Wyatt knows that his own moral code has come at odds with the FBI before and without hesitation, he puts a member of his team ahead of it again. Lily let her emotions blind her and she went semi around her boss in order to capture an obsession.Read more ›
Black at Heart picks up after her memorial service and we find she is indeed alive and hidden away by her boss Wyatt Blackstone until she recovers from her near-fatal injuries. Keeping Lily's survival under wraps is vital to the FBI's Black CATs team in order to find the bad guy before he finds her. The beginning of this story, I thought, took a few chapters to get going, but once it did, it was a typical Kelly page-turner.
Wyatt is a brilliant, by-the-book FBI guy, ten years Lily's senior. Lily, a rookie agent at the time of her "death", was a quiet, young cyber-nerd who had a major crush on her boss. After her call to Wyatt for help, he finds her and hides her. As he helps her with her recovery, their mutual attraction begins to surface but neither wants to act on it. But Lily has come out of her ordeal a stronger, more determined woman. One that hasn't gone unnoticed by Wyatt.
As the CATs team closes in on solving the complex case that reaches all the way back to the kidnapping and killing of Lily's nephew and ultimately causes her sister's suicide, Lily and Wyatt begin taking the steps to their own relationship.
I'm looking forward to the next book in the series, Black Out, coming in the spring of 2014.
This is Wyatt and Lily's story, and it is hard to give a plot summary without giving away a ton of spoilers. I will try to tread lightly. When we first met Lily, she is a very young, slightly awkward woman whose awkwardness increases exponentially to Wyatt's proximity. Lily's nephew was murdered by a child predator, and her sister committed suicide in the wake of her child's death. Lily is fiercely dedicated to capturing predators before they can harm other children. In the midst of a case, bad, bad things happen to Lily. Wyatt comes to her rescue.
Fast forward...Lily has become stronger, both physically and mentally. She refuses to bow to her fear. Instead, she trains and builds up the skills she needs to protect herself. Oh, I loved Lily. What a shero. In the face of true tragedy and adversity, she chooses to become more than she was instead of giving in to a victim mentality.
Wyatt is a tortured soul. He is brilliant, driven and does the right thing, always. Even when the right thing is not the easy thing. He has integrity that shines through the story. Lily gets him and gets to him in a way he has never experienced before.
Their voyage to a relationship is not smooth sailing, but it feels real and honest.
The arc of the story has all of these threads that are seemingly unconnected at first, but then spin into a tightly woven web of intrigue and mystery. The plot was believable and kept me guessing.
Bottom line - this is a great read. Romance and well done suspense keeps the pages turning.
