Black Knights Inc. #6
Only the most urgent crisis could force Delilah Fairchild to abandon her beloved biker bar and ask the surly Bryan "Mac" McMillan for help. Her uncle—the man who raised her—has vanished into thin air, and Mac is the only person with the right connections to help her find him. What the ex-FBI agent has against her is a mystery...but when the bullets start to fly, Mac is her only chance of finding her uncle alive.
Mac knows that beautiful women can't be trusted, but he has to put his natural wariness of Delilah aside in order to help her. With the clock ticking, Mac and Delilah find themselves holding on to each other in the wildest adventure of their lives.
This book gets 2,5 stars from me. And why such a low score for a story, that has such a great plot, lots of action, thriller, agonizing, yet passionate romance, and more than a hand full of alpha men solving the mystery?!
The constant, non-stop, rumbling inner reflections of the whole cast of characters, is not only dulling the sharp edge of the action, making the characters look and sound very immature and unprofessional, it is boring. Have you ever thought "frickin' frackin' terrorist" in your mind? And would you do it in a life or death situation while one the worlds most dangerous and evil terrorist is hunting for you? No, I didn't think so.
The cast, in the middle of this supposed dangerous situation, are looking at, thinking of, and/or lusting after each others constantly, on every page, invariably. Okay, I got it, they want each other, no need to write another three pages about his/her body parts! Instead of constant details of the lust for each other, why not write more details of the terror, the action, even the relationship when it finally starts. All that is just skimmed over and rushed up,
The alpha males, the heroes who have fought wars, been agents, solved the most dangerous puzzles in the world, are turned into a crying, hesitant, insecure men, with mommy issues. I understand making them human and flowed, yes please. But these men don't sound or act like they got everything together at all.
So yes, even with all the potential this story had, from me, it was a bit bland tale, so 2,5 stars.
MY GRADING SCALE:
