BORN WILD by Julia Ann Walker is a wild roller coaster ride
of a story. Eve Edens has been trying to find her
ladyballs, per her personal defense instructor, for the
past few months. So when she has a series of accidents, as
her father and the police keep telling her they are, she is
frustrated and not sure where to turn for help. The third
and most recent accident had her running her Vespa off the
road and into Lake Michigan, and almost drowning. To make
matters worse all her accidents are being splashed across
the Chicago papers. Eve decides the only person that can
help her is the last person she wants to spend time with.
One gorgeous, sexy, ex-boyfriend and brother of her best
friend Becky, "Wild" Bill Reichert of Black Knights Inc.
Eve is the quiet, shy socialite that does whatever her
father and everyone tells her to do. But that has slowly
been changing since her kidnapping over a year ago. Bill is
the tough ex-Navy Seal that has a protective streak a mile
long, especially when it comes to Eve. You would not think
that these two would have ever gotten together back in high
school and fallen so hard for each other, but they did and
the break-up was not pretty. I think they are perfect for
Mac McMillan is lounging on the sofa at the chopper shop
that BKI uses as their headquarters, reading the paper when
he comes across the article about Eve's scooter accident.
He is giving Bill the details and letting him know she is
ok, when the front gate guard lets him know that Eve has
just arrived in a taxi. Eve is very nervous about asking
Billy for help, but she knows she has no other option. So
gathering her ladyballs she enters the shop. She tells Mac
& Billy that she is in trouble and needs their help, and
that she does not believe any of her accidents where that.
She thinks someone is out to kill her, and she has no idea
why. Eve, Billy, Mac and Ace are all in the conference room
while Eve tells them the whole story. The chemistry between
her and Billy is just as electrifying today as it was 12
years earlier. Eve tells them that she has been living with
her cousin Jeremy Buchanan who is a cop in vice, since her
apartment burned and that her father is furious. All the
men agree that she needs to stay at BKI till they can catch
the person responsible. As you can imagine this is so not
what she wants or Bill. There are still too many raw
feelings and hurts between the two of them that have not
healed, and being in close quarters with each other will
From the first chapter BORN WILD is nonstop action, and the
twist and turns will have you reading as fast as you can to
see what happens next. Eve and Bill's characters will have
you cheering for them to not just make it out alive, but
for them to make it as a couple. I really enjoyed BORN WILD
and would recommend this to anyone that is a fan of romance
or romantic suspense, there is a good balance of both. Ms.
Walker seems to have a knack in all her books at being able
to blend the perfect balance of romance and suspense. If
you have not read the other books in the Black Knights
series, you should.
New York Times and USA Today bestselling
author Julie Ann Walker dives back into action with the
red-hot romantic suspense Black Knights Inc. series! They
claim they're bad-boy bikers who own custom motorcycle shop,
but these special-ops guysâ€”a mix of Navy SEALs, Army
Rangers, Marines, FBI and moreâ€”handle the jobs too tough for
the government to tackle.
"Wild" Bill Reichert knows a thing or two about explosives.
The ex-Navy SEAL can practically rig a bomb blindfolded. But
there's no way to diffuse the inevitable fireworks the day
Eve Edens walks back into his life, asking for help...
Eve doesn't know what to do when the Chicago police won't
believe someone is out to hurt her. The only place to turn
is Black Knights Inc-after all, no one is better at
protection than the covert special-ops team. Yet there's
also no one better at getting her all turned on than Billy
Reichert. She has a feeling this is one blast from the past
that could backfire big time...
