When the Black Knights are told that one of their own, ex–Navy SEAL Richard “Rock” Babineaux, has gone rogue and the government’s entire intelligence apparatus is out to get him, they take matters into their own hands. Vanessa Cordero, their communications specialist, uses her language skills to track him down in Central America but also unwittingly leads the CIA to him. After a wild chase through the jungle, where it’s a toss-up whether a bullet or their own passion for each other will get them first, the Knights capture Rock and help him escape while they figure out who set him up. In the process of doing this, Rock and Vanessa give in to their this-may-be-the-only-chance sexual tension, and it becomes obvious that Bill and Eve, two supporting characters, are not far behind them, and may be the subject of the next installment in Walker’s series. A great, fast-paced, and sexy read that lives up to its double-entendre title and to readers’ expectations for Walker’s books. Catherine Mann readers will also love Thrill Ride. --Mary K. Chelton

Now on to Rock. I really like his character except for the whole I just can't let myself love her storyline. Ummm, pretty sure we've seen that before (hello Frank anyone). And of course, just like Frank it turned out to be a really stupid reason! I also didn't understand his reluctance to have his friends help him.
The romance was meh. We know that Rock thinks that Vanessa has a beautiful a** because he tells us A LOT! Other than that, not sure where the feelings come from. He spends most the book pushing her away for no reason until towards the end when he finally has a reason since he believes she betrayed him. As for Vanessa, we know she thinks Rock is absolutely gorgeous and loves his voice but again not much else. In fact, she doesn't even completely believe he is innocent and waffles between believing he is guilty and innocent. At one point she even thinks he's going to shoot her!
This book was just okay at best. Such a huge disappointment...I liked the characters so much in the previous book but ended up with weak Vanessa and redone Franks
These characters definitely live hard and love harder. I love how couples from the previous novel(s) in the series walk their way into this novel. It gives a sense of continuity to the series as a whole, while giving me extra investment in each individual novel. Rock & Vanessa definitely made an intriguing couple in this novel. The differences in their personalities and personal histories served to highlight just how much they really did have in common. I loved the surprise twists in Vanessa & Rock’s relationship. The dynamics between them were never simple, and never turned out quite how I expected them to, but always worked for the characters.
Thrill Ride is definitely a welcome addition to the BKI series. I loved getting to know the characters a little better, while finding out even more about who the Black Knights are and what they do. I’d definitely recommend this novel to those who enjoy a fast paced, suspenseful romance with larger than life characters.
The book's name says it all… go on a Thrill Ride with Rock Babineaux an ex-Seal from New Orleans and a little bit nefarious. His team believes that he has gone rogue, but anyone that knows him, knows that he would never betray his country. He feels that the only way to protect the team and his partner, Vanessa, is to run and stay far away from them.
Vanessa is very stubborn and won’t give up on Rock or leave him to deal with this on his own. In fact, she is willing to give up Rock, the one person she loves, so he can clear his name.
I can’t say that each book gets better; I can say that each book is written so well that the suspense and wild ride will keep you turning each page until you have finished the last page. Make sure you read this new installment and find out how this situation is resolved and if Rock and Vanessa can have their own HEA or is the situation so complex they must walk off.
