If you like Maya Banks KGI books you will love this. It is a great new series to me and I am looking forward to the rest of the books. You will became so interested in the lives of the Knights they will feel like family.

I want more, lol, but its true after this story I am addicted, we get the best of different worlds with a group of alpha males, ex military, bad asses, motorcycles, drama with romance all around. Now I have wait to get the next one but the wait will make all the more better. Not spoiling this but you will be not be disapointed at all, it grabs you attention from the start and wont let go until the very end.

I'm in the middle of book #2 in this series, and I am loving it as much as I loved this book. The author's phrasing is laugh-out-loud funny at times. Both H & h are likable characters with a slow build-up to the steam. Putting this author on my must-buy list! Very much worth a credit.

This is a great read. The characters are easy to get to know and are fun to read about.

Good story; a few facepalm moments of plot-induced lack of wits.

So good I read it all in one day! When a tough, silent hero finally gives in to his feelings for his best friend's sister, the passion is off the charts. She's a seemingly innocent kindergarten teacher with a few tricks up her sleeve that don't include walking away from the man she loves, no matter how hard he pushes. Action packed, steamy and the first in a series, so you know the secondary characters are on their way to their own books - can't wait!

good story, made me laugh, made me cry. I wished it would have continued. The main character, Nate was so interesting. You could feel his pain. I can't wait to read the rest of the series.

Well, I liked it, but didn't really like it...I have some nitpicks. So, Ali's got some people after her and she goes to her brother's best friend for help. She's known him (and been in love with him) for over a decade and vice versa.
This had a decent amount of suspense. The characters are likable. But, the romance was so-so. It's the "I'm in love with best friend's sibling" trope, but can't have them because it's my best friend's sibling/not good enough. Whatever. Last I checked both were adults and didn't need anyone's permission. I thought the back and forth (I want you, but can't have you! and Made a move/said something, but then a push back) was too much and lasted too long before they finally got together. I also thought the ending a bit rushed.
Ali was a well written character. I felt I knew her. Nate not so much. I knew next to nothing about him and that was the same at the end. While I liked Ali, be warned. She has a weak stomach and threw up 4 times. The other thing? She doesn't cuss. It's crapola. HE double hockey sticks. Frank even apologies for cussing (yes, women have delicate ears and will go ape shit should they hear a curse word!). Insert eye-roll here.
I thought Becky and Frank (who also happen to be the couple featured in the next book) had a strong story-line in this book. I am definitely pro-Becky. I thought she was fantastic and kick ass. I loved that she was so unconventional. Frank? I'm calling him a misogynistic asshole! I thought Becky was tolerated, because they NEED her skills, but at the same time, was not really one of THEM. Her goal is to be one of THEM. She takes steps to make that happen, and Frank, tells her she will never be one of them. And if she leaves, he will sabotage her chances. Now, it doesn't say what his reasoning was (beyond "for her own good"), but I can't help but think it's because: 1. Becky is a woman. 2. He likes Becky. 3. He must therefore "protect" her. I'm curious if he redeems himself because I thought this book had good, strong female characters that didn't venture into TSTL territory and could hold their own.
Featured in this book: Frank (Boss), Rebecca (Becky), Ethan (Ozzie), Dan (Dan Man), Patti
Someone does die. Wonder if Dagan will join?
Mentioned: Billy (Becky's brother), Christian, Rock, Steady, Mac, Jamin
