Abby Thompson didn’t sign up to be the daughter of the President of the United States. The position was forced on her by the small matter of her birth. Preferring a quiet life of study, she’s content to leave the politics and the international intrigue to her father. Unfortunately, the most powerful man on the planet is sure to make enemies. When a group of armed thugs takes her hostage half a world away, demanding the U.S. government release prisoners in exchange for her safe return, she fears her father’s policy of “not negotiating with terrorists” means she’ll never see the shores of the Potomac again. Luckily, there’s one glimmer of hope. His name is Carlos Soto. And though she abruptly ended things with him years ago, she knows now he’s the only man who can save her…
Black Knights, Inc. to the Rescue...
Carlos “Steady” Soto has taken part in his fair share of dangerous missions working at the covert government defense firm of Black Knights Inc. But nothing prepared him for the emotional rollercoaster he faces when he’s tasked with rescuing the only woman he ever loved—who also broke his heart. Racing against time and outmaneuvering a group of trained terrorists will take everything he’s got. Plus there’s the heat simmering between them which is threatening to ignite into an inferno. While ruthless enemies stalk them, they must learn to trust each other again. Even if they do make it out alive, will Abby turn her back on him…for the second time?
Abby has spent years thinking about Carlos but the guilt over his sister Rosa's death lies heavily on her. Everything has changed and yet the intense spark she felt for this gorgeous man still remains. He has always seen her as a child but just once Abby would love for Carlos to see the woman she really is; but treachery is about to put Abby in danger and as night descends so too does hope as Abby faces her worst nightmare. Powerless and alone, Abby is snatched away and devastation is left in her wake. Carlos is not a man to stand idly by and in the aftermath of terror takes stock and knows what he has to do. Someone made a very big mistake when they took Abby because she is the most important thing in Carlos's world and nothing and no one will stop him getting her back!
This was a very fast paced and action packed story. I loved Carlos with his sexy words and dimple and I didn't even mind the quirky banter the couple shared. Yes at times the dialogue felt young, but it was nice to see humour could still play a part in their lives. Abby comes out with the most amazing things which is partly why Carlos has always seen her as too young for him but I thought it sweet that they could tease each other showing true affection. These star crossed lovers are about to be put to the test and it's a rip roaring ride with lots going on. I loved the passion between them but did find it a tad strange just how often they wanted to be intimate because if I was running for my life I might be more focused on survival, but that being said, when faced with death it’s natural to embrace being alive. So be prepared for lots of hot and heavy moments.
I'm hoping Ms Walker will give Dan a book soon as he's a hero that tugs at my heart strings. I really enjoyed reading this book and if you want a sexy story with great characters then I suggest you pick up a copy too. I received a copy of this from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
