Book Description

USA Today Bestseller!

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.

Hold On Tight...

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.

Rough Road Ahead

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.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Explosive New Series!!! August 11, 2012
    Format:Mass Market Paperback
    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.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Poorly written, wouldn't pay full price December 1, 2012
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    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.

    4.0 out of 5 stars A thunderous read! August 9, 2012
    Format:Mass Market Paperback
    The perfect man? A poet on a motorcycle. ~Lucinda Williams

    Julie Ann Walker roars on to the Romantic Suspense scene with her new series, Black Knight Inc. - special ops personnel turned private security company. They "hide" in plain sight as a custom motorcycle shop outside Chicago. HELL ON WHEELS, Book One, kicks off with a mission gone wrong, a promise made to a fallen friend, and the violence spilling over to a family member. Nate, aka The Ghost, steps out of the shadows to protect Ali, his dead buddy's sister. Nate may not read poetry, but Ali can't help but find him very appealing as the perfect man.

    The ensuing ride takes the reluctant hero and the sexy sister through the gut wrenching notification of a brother's death, riveting action as they evade a nefarious organization, and an emotional connection that leads to their HEA.

    HELL ON WHEELS is everything a reader could want from a romantic suspense - a tortured Aloha hero, "burning rubber" passionate encounters, and thrill-a-minute action that left me breathless.

    I received an ARC from the publisher for this review.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Although I enjoyed it.... August 22, 2012
    Format:Mass Market Paperback
    3.5 Feathers
    Reviewed by Francesca & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog

    I must seriously be the odd one out. Everyone has absolutely loved this book and although I enjoyed it, I didn't get to the total adoration. Mainly because of the hero and heroine. The writing in the book is great and the concept of this series is awesome. I mean you can't go wrong with hot ex military working as a private operation and the coverup is...a motorcycle shop. Can't get sexier than that! *fans self*

    But then we meet Nate. Although I think he's very hot, handsome, sexy, has that brooding alpha thing going for him, I really didn't get to love him. It may be that he's not very outspoken. And yes, this is an issue brought up during the book, but I don't think I can like a guy who answers in one word answers. Then there's the issue of him having hangups about being a few years older and in love and lust with his best friend and teammates' sister, Ali. He's fought the attraction for most of the time they've known each other. He doesn't talk to her about anything, doesn't let her in. I think they both just have a crush!

    Then there's Ali. Well, I liked her but she annoyed me as well. I think with her being so young she was a bit immature and it came across as immature, which got on my nerves at times. Damn, am I starting to get too picky? She is still a very strong person. The premise of this book is that her brother is killed during his work with the Black Knights (who she knew nothing about) and now one of the bad guys that his brother was sort of investigation is after her because her brother sent her sensitive information (proof) of this guys' crimes.
