Christian Watson, former SAS (Special Air Service) officer
who was decommissioned following a horrible event in the
Middle East is now a Black Knight Inc. operative. Emily
Scott is also a part of BKI and finds herself lusting after
the hot Brit, but knows from her screwed up family, it is
best not to go into HOT PURSUIT of the man.
A simple task of trying to leave his homeland to go back to
the U.S.A. finds him and the team with him, including the
almost irresistible Emily in danger. Newspaper people had
found their hide-out and they manage to get out of that with
the help of an explosion, then two men attack them at the
private airfield and send them racing away from sirens.
Little does Christian know that the hardest thing he is ever
going to have to deal with is his feelings for Emily. Well,
maybe not his feelings, but making her believe in her
feelings for him would really be the hardest thing he has
ever had to deal with.
HOT PURSUIT is an action-packed, amazing read. I will say
that I loved Christian, he is totally what we consider a
Brit, but I did notice the use of a few words, especially
his swearing that didn't quite fit. I did get a kick out of
the constant and rather snarky bickering by Christian and
Emily. Emily took a bit longer for me to grow to like. She
is quick-witted, smart and amazingly able but when it came
to dealing with emotional ties -- it is beyond her ability.
Their family history and Christian's made me cry, give them
both something to hurdle and Christian does it when he puts
his behind him and goes after something that will bring him
happiness. Emily. His patience, gentle gestures and quiet
confidence will have you swooning and looking for your own
Ace, Angel and Rusty are the other members of the team stuck
in England who added a lot of interest and intrigue to the
storyline. They are an interesting group of people and as
this is book 11 in author Julie Ann Walker's Black
Knight Inc. series, she managed to keep the
characters and action amazingly fresh and filled with intrigue.
If you want action, camaraderie, family of the heart, sweet
and steamy romance, mixed with a good bit of snarky
bantering then get your hands on HOT PURSUIT.
Christian Watson, a former SAS officer and current BKI
operator, never thought he would return to England after a
terrible turn of events forced him to abandon his homeland.
But now he's back on British soil where old enemies are
determined to do him in. Fighting for his life is pretty
much SOP for Christian. Doing it with the beautiful, bossy
Emily Scott in tow is another matter entirely.
In hot pursuit.
Emily lost her coveted job at the CIA because of a colleague
turned rogue, and now she has just one rule when it comes to
men: they're for recreational purposes only. But when she
and Christian are thrust into very close quarters while
evading two mysterious men who want Christian dead, she
can't help but question all her ideas about love and life
lived on the edge. Battling the bad guys is hard enough,
battling her feelings for Christian just might prove impossible.
