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?

My Review:

This novel is chalk full of suspense caused by the danger, mystery, and palpable chemistry that Walker puts down to paper. Her descriptions and narrative bring this novel to be in a larger than life way. I can definitely say that I didn’t see that ending coming, however. Walker kept me guessing right to the very end.

I love how raw & gritty the Black Knights are as individuals. Their rough and tumble demeanours really shine through Walker’s writing. At the same time, each has a little something that makes them stand out in a big way. I thoroughly enjoy how well we are getting to know them by this point in time in the series. Everyone is really becoming real to me.

Bill & Eve are priceless together. They’re so set on not actually talking that they fight their way through non-existent battles. At the same time, the tension between them, both animosity and sheer chemical attraction, is off the charts. It makes for a very unique main couple.

Once again, Walker has brought her secret agents/motorcycle mechanics to life in a big way. This was an exciting, fast paced ride through one heck of a story.
