Review: Thrill Ride by Julie Ann Walker


Ex-navy SEAL Rock Babineaux is as Cajun as they come—spicy, sexy, and more than a bit wicked. But would he actually betray his country? Even his best friends on the special-ops Black Knights team aren't sure they can trust him. Now the target of a massive manhunt, Rock knows the only way to protect the team—especially his partner, Vanessa—is to run...


Rock might think he can outmaneuver them all, but he hasn't counted on how stubborn Vanessa Cordero can be. And she refuses to cut him loose. Sure, her partner has his secrets, but there's no one in the world she'd rather have by her side in a tight spot. Which is good because she and Rock are about to get very tight...

Thrill Ride certainly lives up to its name.  It's a little over-the-top, a little crazy, and a little unbelievable, but a great addition to Ms. Walker's Black Knights series. 

Rock and Vanessa have amazing chemistry in Rev it Up, so I was surprised that the series didn't immediately pick up where book 3 had left off. The story is fast-paced, if a bit unbelievable, but I could suspend my belief because I wanted the Black Knights to find Rock and to help save his life.  

Secondary characters Bill and Eve continue to deny their attraction to each other while using Eve's vacation home as a base, and I'm looking forward to hearing more of their story in book 5, Born Wild (November 2013).    
(A very special thank you to Sourcebooks Casablanca and NetGalley for providing me with an ARC of Thrill Ride.)
