I think 2 stars is a generous review. I feel the same as others who have been so frustrated with words used over & OVER again…'sheesh', 'rep', 'ho-kay,and definitely "h-e double hockey sticks". For anyone who thinks that that means there is no cussing in the book, you are wrong. That was only for Ali…all the other characters cussed. So do not get it thinking it's going to be a clean book. I'm fine with it but have read other reviews that implied there was no cussing.

This is my first time reading this author and I thought this book started off with a great story. It had great potential and so I kept reading it hoping it would fulfill that. I WAS SO ANNOYED!!! Early on in the book, the main female character is being questioned about certain events by this elite group of ex-military people. All really tough guys who have been through a lot (thank you to all our military!!! Love you all!) and she slaps her hands on the table and tells them all to stop it or she is going to cry. WHAT??? Shut up, really???

And they had to get from Chicago to Jacksonville NC urgently to get a USB drive but the big tough ex-military guy will not get on a commercial airline??? And then they refuse to take her Prius so have to ride a motorcycle all the way because it's safer??!!! Come ON!!!

I really wanted to like this book but it drove me nuts. If this is a normal example of this author's writing style, I will not read another book of hers.

Carla's Review:
HELL ON WHEELS is the first book in Julie Ann Walker's new Black Knights Inc series and what an amazing new series this is!!!

I am a huge fan of romantic suspense so when I came across these books on Amazon, I knew I had to read them. I was extremely lucky to gets ARCs of the first three books in the series and I am so happy I did. Once I finished the first book I couldn't wait to start the second. I ended up reading all three books in 2 days. I am a sucker for tortured heroes and the "big brothers best friend" relationship so this book was right up my alley.

Black Knights Inc is a group of ex-military men working as a top secret private agency under the guise of a motorcycle shop that is owned by Becky "Rebel" Reichert, who is one of the team members younger sister.

This is the story of Nate "Ghost" Weller and his best friend Grigg Morgan's baby sister, Ali Morgan. Nate has always been attracted to Ali since the very first day he met her. He was also threatened by Grigg that very moment he met Ali that Grigg would kill him if he ever touched her LOL. So, Nate has always tried to limit his time near Ali so she would never find out how he felt. Now that Grigg is gone, Nate still feels obligated to not betray his best friend and stay away from Ali. Nate is also tormented by Griggs death and feels extremely guilty. After delivering the news of Grigg's death to Ali and her parents, Nate and Ali share comfort with each other. He knows now, more than ever that anything between him and Ali could never be, because when she finds out the truth about what really happened to Grigg, she'll never forgive him. Nate decides to just leave Ali alone. That is until Ali shows up at the Black Knights Headquarters and needs protection.

I brought this e-book in the Cyber Monday deals for $1.99 and even that price was too much for this book. I was so disappointed with it. I can count on one hand how many books I haven't finished and this is one of them. The story idea sounded so appealing, but the execution of it was just awful. My biggest issue with this book was the way it was written. I am an avid reader and don't think I have read anything so poorly written in a long time. I cringed and rolled my eyes every time Ali said "Crapola" or "h-e-double hockey sticks". Really? Is she 11 or 12 years old? What grown woman says that? And what was with the author constantly using-hyphens-to-make-her-point-with-descriptions-of-things? It was really annoying to continually keep seeing this every page or two. I wont be reading the other books in this series, nor will I try anything else of this authors. I've been put off for life.

Was this book written by a 6th grader? How did it get published? Doesn't someone read the manuscripts? The storyline has possibilities, but the military references are way off base and the writing, the dialogue is awful. Maybe I am being too judgmental; I only got through about 40 pages before I said,"erp".

This story was really disappointing and very predictable! Poor writing and regurgitated characters: Huge, Muscular Man - with military background totally in love with dumb girl.
You would enjoy this book if you like reading material that was written for a 12 year old. The author liked to use words like "H E double hockey sticks, gosh dang, geez, but then she would throw in the F-word. It was really awkward for me to read. It was a total waste of money and time.
I am pretty sure my 13 year old could write a better book.

I can say NOTHING good about this book. Obviously the author is trying to copy Tara Janzen's Steele Street series, the difference is that the Steele Street (SS) series is good. SS has secret operatives who work out of an old garage, have great classic cars, and many worked in chop shops -- this has a motorcycle garage. SS has a boss/leader who is conflicted over his feelings for much younger woman (who is a hacker) and doesn't want her to be an active operative--this book steals that plot line completely! Both throw in an artist/painter, the difference being in SS, from the well written descriptions you can visualize paintings that make you wish they were real and you could see them -- this book just throws it in.

Unlike this book, SS is not fluff, it has well developed plots and actual writing. This book consists 70+% of people thinking about sex, thinking about having sex, thinking about how hard they are, ... another 10% is the author's obsession with coming up with "cute" descriptive phrases and curses. The "heroine" is a prissy, naive, snob and is unbelievably annoying. I found myself repeatedly chanting, "you have got to be kidding" over her dialog and actions.

While I love audiobooks, in this case the audiobook only made a bad book worse--every voice the reader did was badly done and grating. The voice for the heroine was so saccharin I nearly gagged, it was a whiny, spoiled little girl voice. Needless to say I couldn't finish this even though I tried skipping the ridiculous, and huge blocks of internal dialogue from the two primary characters (his: sex, sex, oh woe is me, sex; hers: whine, whine, I'm a ditz, sex, whine) but it turned out there was next to nothing left after those were removed.
