Black Knights Inc. #5
She's got three rules:
1. Trust no one… Eve Edens has been abandoned, used, or manipulated by almost everyone she's ever met. Born into ridiculous wealth, she's dealt with the petty jealousies and sordid little resentments for nearly thirty years. But after three botched attempts on her life, she can no longer ignore the truth. Someone wants her dead.
2. Avoid the bad boys at all costs… William "Wild Bill" Reichert, the wonderfully sexy boy who abandoned her years ago, is back in town. Only he's no boy. Now he's a covert operative - and he's all man. When Eve hires Bill to help her discover who is behind the attacks, Bill soon comes to suspect it's someone much closer to Eve than she dares to believe.
3. And never fall for the same ruse twice… The search for the killer takes Bill and Eve deep into the dark secrets and strange world of the rich and famous, and into the heart of red-hot passion re-ignited by the peril that threatens to consume them both. But does Eve dare risk her heart on Bill a second time?
Like I said in previous reviews of the series, I've struggled a bit with the tales, but the gang grew on me, and I decided to continue reading the Black Knight Inc series.
Well, the gang wasn't part of this tale, just Billy and new members Mac and Ace whom hasn't played a major part in the previous books. But we've had glimpses of Eve and Billy in the past books, and I looked forward to see, how they manage to find their way back to each other. And I promised to look over the constant inner reflections, that brought out rather childish side of all the characters.
As expected, there was a lot of pull-push action between Billy and Eve. It was a bit heart-breaking, as well as sweet, and wistful. The final solutions for the conflict came from surprising source.
The tension was high, not only because of the past between Billy and Eve, but because the menace to Eve was coming from someone very close to her. And even the nature seemed against the couple at one point.
After 12 years of tension and anxiety, everything came to conclusion rather rapidly. The story was over all nice and fine, kept the interest to the story alive. Three stars.
MY GRADING SCALE:
5 Spoons - Amazing, memorable story that I loved and want to read again. The best of the best and not given lightly
4 Spoons - Fantastic, entertaining story that I enjoyed and connected with and will gladly recommend to readers
3 Spoons - A good story, not much that stood out but I was engaged enough to spend the time to read it through
2 Spoons - A story with some issues, that were a problem to me
1 Spoon - Not for me
