    He never thought to see her again And if that wasn t a shock, it was in the employee of one of the world s worst criminals She mourned the loss of the love of her life and no one ever took his place, so why does this world renowned criminal remind her so much of her lost love Extensive plastic surgery has left Sonya in the dark, he never knew that her love didn t die but has been in deep undercover for years Angel Jamin is blown away to have a chance to be with Sonya again But he can t blow He never thought to see her again And if that wasn t a shock, it was in the employee of one of the world s worst criminals She mourned the loss of the love of her life and no one ever took his place, so why does this world renowned criminal remind her so much of her lost love Extensive plastic surgery has left Sonya in the dark, he never knew that her love didn t die but has been in deep undercover for years Angel Jamin is blown away to have a chance to be with Sonya again But he can t blow his cover And what is she doing with this evil b st rd Sparks fly, emotions run wilds as Black Knights Inc faces their deadliest foe, the one behind it all.What a way to give us a finale to the Black Knight Inc series Perfect closure, perfect balance of suspense, romance and complete cast interaction It seems like just yesterday, I read my first Black Knight installment and here we are at 12 Its sad to see these characters leave the limelight, but Walker did a top notch job of sucking us into their world.I received this ARC copy of Built to Last from SOURCEBOOKS Casablanca This is my honest and voluntary review Built to Last is set for publication July 3, 2018.My Rating 4.5 starsWritten by Julie Ann WalkerSeries Black Knights Inc Sequence in Series Book 12Mass Market Paperback 384 pagesPublisher Sourcebooks Casablanca Publication Date July 3, 2018ISBN 10 1492608874ISBN 13 978 1492608875Genre Romantic Suspense Noblereviews check out Tome Tender s Book Blog or find us on Facebook.

    How to review a book when you thought the plot would be for you but it was the first book of that author that you read and now you know that the writing style was not for you I guess I will go with 3 stars because the book was good just not for me I know that this might be a confusing way of thinking but it s just the way I feel As it might not have been my brightest Idea to start a new author when it s the last book in a long series is one reason for me to decide this way but in my defense How to review a book when you thought the plot would be for you but it was the first book of that author that you read and now you know that the writing style was not for you I guess I will go with 3 stars because the book was good just not for me I know that this might be a confusing way of thinking but it s just the way I feel As it might not have been my brightest Idea to start a new author when it s the last book in a long series is one reason for me to decide this way but in my defense I do that all the time and usually I can handle it Also the plot really sounded good Not sure what I was thinking would happen but somehow I just did not consider that the author might approach this from the suspense side of it My bad.The leading characters are well developed and you can just sense that this book is part of a series that developed over a long time So if you are a lover of classical suspense romances that follow a clever plot and you liked what your read in the Blurb this is your book.Me on the other hand I am into a different kind of romance and therefore had a hard time connecting to the characters parts of that problem might also be because I never read a book in that series before As I said I don t blame the book It s not you it s mePLEASE SUBSCRIBE LIKE FOLLOW US Blog Page

    What a great wrap up to this series I love seeing everyone and finding out what they were doing And I m curious as to what will happen in the future because of the way the ending was left open.As for Angel and Sonya, they had a lot to get past for them to work out I dont know that I could have done it The side romance made me smile I won t spoil it for you by saying who it is just know it was perfect.

    The last couple of books have been building up to a showdown with the evil mastermind Spider And now Jamin Angel Agassi, a former Mossad agent and currently working for Black Knight Inc has managed to catch Spider s attention and infiltrate his network He is an enigma A man of mystery with several previous identities and now is basically a ghost He is tall, dark, dangerous, and deadly He sacrificed everything for his country including the woman he loved And now he is a man on a mission, The last couple of books have been building up to a showdown with the evil mastermind Spider And now Jamin Angel Agassi, a former Mossad agent and currently working for Black Knight Inc has managed to catch Spider s attention and infiltrate his network He is an enigma A man of mystery with several previous identities and now is basically a ghost He is tall, dark, dangerous, and deadly He sacrificed everything for his country including the woman he loved And now he is a man on a mission, but also dealing with his past Sonya Butler is working with Spider as his Girl Friday She is smart, resourceful, tenacious, and wary when it comes to dealing with Angel And she may have her own hidden agenda But there is an attraction she cannot deny and also something about Angel that makes her remember the love she lost a decade ago Thrust into a dangerous situation, they have to rely on each other It is intense and unpredictable But will their secrets and or their pursuers catch up to them Ace and Rusty are also still fussing and fighting their attraction Ace is out and never wants to be put back in the closet But Rusty is really far in the closet and does not plan on coming out But when things get dicey and tensions run high, feelings escalate But will it be too late to do something about it This is an action packed, suspenseful, undercover story built around two love stories It is a second chance romance and also a M M romance It also has some humor and definite camaraderie mixed in The couples are facing personal struggles in addition to the external danger Ultimately it is about sacrifice, honesty, forgiveness, hope, and the power of lovewhether it be to hurt or heal I would not recommend reading this one as a stand alone and feel like it would be most enjoyed and understood if you at least read the last two books prior to this one that has followed this group of characters and story arc Some of the other BKI agents are part of this mission including Ozzie, Rock, Boss, and Ghost But this book also serves as an epilogue to the entire BKI series giving updates on all of the couples and giving us a chance to catch up with them and provide some series closure And she left it with a little tease that could mean something new for this author in the future I received this book for free from netgalley in exchange for an honest review This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Follow Me Reviews by Tammy Kim Rachel and Jay Facebook Twitter
