Jake "The Snake" Sommers has spent most of his black-ops military career fulfilling a promise he made more than a decade ago. Now he's finally free to pursue the woman he sacrificed...but hates the very ground he walks on. Michelle Carter has never forgiven Jake for being so cliche as to "love her and leave her." But when unknown enemies threaten everything she loves, she must do the unimaginable: place her life-and that of her son's-into Jake's seductive hands.
Keeping her and her son safe is his final mission. Keeping her heart to herself just might prove futile...
Ah yes, another Black Knights novel. This one is also true to the formula of the last books in this series. Where there is a misunderstanding which keeps the couple apart. This isn't necessarily a bad thing as it was entertaining as the other two. In this one the misunderstanding was a bit more complicated and a lot more understandable. So, it was a bit different in that way. I actually felt it gave this story a bit more depth. Plus, there is that child, Franklin to help keep you in an "awww" state. :D
Jake and Shell were the couple of this book, but we also follow another couple, Rock and Vanessa. I have to admit the split of the POV with this couple was a bit confusing at first, but when they separated into their own missions, it was much easier to follow. I also suspect that is the next couple we will see together in the next book of this series. I don't mind as Rock reminded me of Gambit (X-men fame) since he kept throwing in all that Cajun French into his speech.
I give this book 3 1/2 stars. It stays true to formula, but it is still an entertaining read. If you enjoy romance with a lot of action, I do think you'll enjoy this series. It's just one of those fun books you look forward to reading.
I received this eARC from NetGalley and Sourcebooks and no compensation for my review was given.
