Genre: Contemporary Romantic Suspense – Military
Published November 5th 2013
By Julie Ann Walker
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?
~ 3.5 Born Wild Stars ~
Born Wild is book five in the Black Knights Inc. series by Julie Ann Walker. We get some hot alpha men, strong witty females, passionate sex, action, and tons of humor.
These books in this series fascinate, impress, and transfix me with the situations, story-lines and predicaments these guys and gals find themselves in. And wow baby the covers are just so very nice and hot.
After reading this one I was a little undecided on how I felt about it. I’ve been waiting to get the whole story of Eve Edens and William “Wild Bill” Reichert ever since Eve came back into the picture in In Rides Trouble. The tension between these two was so strong from the moment they meet again. What made this one so undecided for me was Eve. I was just not sure about her and well I felt William needed/deserved better.
We get a few surprises in regards to their history and relationship which is full of heartache, betrayal and disappointment. I was not sure if these two could get past everything that was done to them and between them. At the same time we have them working together to try and find out who is responsible for trying to kill Eve. Both plots are strong and weaved together we have an interesting book!
We don’t get the whole gang like in previous installments, but we still get some great side characters from previous books incorporated into the story. I enjoy it when an author brings back her/his previous characters. They bring all the spark and quirkiness right along with them each and every time they show back up.
I love the Black Knights Inc. series. The characters and situations are always entreating. Born Wild was another great read in this series.
