I find it hard to write reviews for this Black Knight series. I often enjoy the stories, but with the exception of one (book 4), I find the writing difficult. It feels like the author is trying too hard to be hip by filling her sentences with slang: "Shit on a stick. Why the hell does life, and matters of the heart in particular, have to be so craptastically complicated?" Punctuating the story with slang makes the it fun, but when it happens over and over again, it gets tedious and makes if hard to take the character seriously.
Having said that, I like the characters in the Black Knight series. It is a good romantic suspense with hot alphas and damsels in distress. This one has a good storyline with unforeseen twists and turns. Having read a few books in the series, I enjoy reconnecting with previous characters. This part is fun.
IN A NUTSHELL:
If the author could scale back on the inner voice and the loose language, I would enthusiastically recommend this book. Book 4, Thrill Ride, set the precedent, so I know it can be done. Unfortunately, I can't say that I really enjoyed this read and wouldn't run to the store to purchase it. I will cross my fingers that the next book will be better.
Thank you to the author, publisher, and Netgalley for the ARC in exchange for an honest review.
