Hot Pursuit is a fast paced, action filled adventure that is very entertaining. ~ Amanda, Guilty Pleasures
He puts the hot…
Christian Watson, a former SAS officer and current BKI operator, never thought he would return to England after a terrible turn of events forced him to abandon his homeland. But now he’s back on British soil where old enemies are determined to do him in. Fighting for his life is pretty much SOP for Christian. Doing it with the beautiful, bossy Emily Scott in tow is another matter entirely.
In hot pursuit.
Emily lost her coveted job at the CIA because of a colleague turned rogue, and now she has just one rule when it comes to men: they’re for recreational purposes only. But when she and Christian are thrust into very close quarters while evading two mysterious men who want Christian dead, she can’t help but question all her ideas about love and life lived on the edge. Battling the bad guys is hard enough, battling her feelings for Christian just might prove impossible.
Hot Pursuit is the 11th book in the Black Knight series and it still feels fresh and exciting as book 1. I’m impressed that Julie Ann Walker creates such flawed and charismatic characters that keep the reader engaged and keep coming back for more. Hot Pursuit picks up right after the last book and has 4 BKI operatives and 1 office manager holed up in a cottage in England waiting for their time to get back to the States. Things don’t go as planned and before you know it the press is on them, their escape is botched and now two unknown men are out to kill them.
Christian Watson is a former SAS officer and never expected to be back in England after he left under bad terms. It’s bad enough being back but to make matters worse he is confined to his uncle’s cottage with Emily Scott, the woman who is both irritating and desirable all in one. These two exchanged barbs with one another like it was foreplay. Christian would like nothing better than to pursue something with her but he knows he’s a bad bet. Better to keep things as is unless she deems otherwise. He had a horrible childhood and no one needs to deal with that.
Emily has her own reasons for not pursuing something more with Christian. She was burned bad by a past relationship at her old job and had to quit. In order to have some piece of mind she is never going to mix business with pleasure again. However she can’t help her attraction to Christian and that irritates the hell out of her. What better way to express it than at the man himself. She knows it isn’t reasonable but she doesn’t think he would find her attractive considering how gorgeous she finds him. She couldn’t be more wrong. Christian and Emily are a trip when they get together and the other men on the mission would love it if they would get together and get it over with and put everyone else out of their misery!
Hot Pursuit is a fast paced, action filled adventure that is very entertaining. Danger surrounds them throughout and no one will be safe until they are out of England. There is also a minor side storyline between Ace and Rusty that piqued my interest. I hope there will be more about them as they come to an understanding. From beginning to end the story kept my interest and seeing Christian wear down Emily was well worth it in the end. There is one last mission for BKI and I hope that Angel is one of the next in line to be written. If you are a fan of Rebecca Zanetti and Christy Reece, you will love this romantic suspense series by Julie Ann Walker.
