I was excited for Rock's story because charming, yummy, bad-boy cajun... Yes, please! I'm left wanting more. Vanessa is supposed to be somewhat hardcore, yet she was crying and blubbering the whole time. She didnt use any skills she was supposedly hired for, she was just damsel in distress and dead weight. Rock was still great. Ozzie still brought humor and charm. They saved the story from being a complete flop. Also on a side note for writer/editor... it was Van Gogh who was missing an ear, not Picasso.

The title of this book is right on, from beginning to end it is a thrill ride. The chemistry between Rock and Vanessa is hot, hot, hot, and the action is very fast paced and intense. I loved this book and I can't wait for the next in the series. If you haven't read the others in the series, I would recommend that you do, but I started with the third book, and even reading them out of order, I loved them. This is a fabulous series that just keeps getting better.

Julie Ann Walker -Black Knights Inc. Series – Thrill Ride - Book 4 The book name says it all… go a Thrill Ride with Rock Babineaux an ex-Seal from New Orleans and a little bit nefarious. His team believes that he has gone rogue, but anyone that knows him, knows that he would never betray his country. He feels that the only way to protect the team and his partner, Vanessa, is to run and stay far away from them. Vanessa is very stubborn and will not allow Rock and won’t give up on Rock or leave him to deal with this on his own. In fact, she is willing to give up Rock, the one person she loves, so he can clear his name. I can’t say that each book gets better; I can say that each book is written so well that the suspense and wild ride will keep you turning each page until you have finished the last page. Make sure you read this new installment and find out how this situation is resolved and if Rock and Vanessa can have their own HEA or is the situation so complex they must walk off.

Once again the Black Knights take centre stage with danger, action, and all the heat one girl can handle. Walker’s fast paced narrative had me caught up in the intensity of the story, keeping me on my toes, trying to guess what would happen next. The uniqueness of the plot was fantastic, taking me on a completely unexpected journey. These characters definitely live hard and love harder. I love how couples from the previous novel(s) in the series walk their way into this novel. It gives a sense of continuity to the series as a whole, while giving me extra investment in each individual novel. Rock & Vanessa definitely made an intriguing couple in this novel. The differences in their personalities and personal histories served to highlight just how much they really did have in common. I loved the surprise twists in Vanessa & Rock’s relationship. The dynamics between them were never simple, and never turned out quite how I expected them to, but always worked for the characters. Thrill Ride is definitely a welcome addition to the BKI series. I loved getting to know the characters a little better, while finding out even more about who the Black Knights are and what they do. I’d definitely recommend this novel to those who enjoy a fast paced, suspenseful romance with larger than life characters.

~ 5 Thrill Ride Stars ~  Thrill Ride is book four in the Black Knights Inc. series by Julia Ann Walker. This one can be read as a stand alone. We get action, suspense, and romance. These books in this series fascinate, impress, and transfix me with the situations, storyline and predicaments these guys and gals find themselves in Rock Babineaux is an "enigma wrapped in a riddle and surrounded by bearded stubble”. Yep, that describes him perfectly. I loved Rock. Dame he was hot, sexy, and protective. Vanessa Cordova, hired as a communication specialist for the Black Knights. I liked her. She is strong, determined, and pushes herself past her limited experiences to bring back Rock. These two work well together. The sexual tension was just oozing off the pages. The action and suspense kept me transfixed and glued to the pages. I love the additional side characters and of course the previous characters. It all adds a great dynamic to the book, especially when you add in the banter and humor they have. It shows you how close everyone is. How the Black Knights have become a family I love the Black Knights Inc. series. The characters and situations are always entreating. Thrill Ride delivers an action packed adventure! If you have not picked up this series yet, I highly recommend you do.

Richard "Rock" Babineaux, former SEAL works as motorcycle mechanic at Black Knights INC, has been on the run for the last six months since his name ended up on Burn and Delete List. Rock has done his own investigation into his secret life from Black Knights and none of it makes any sense at all. Vanessa Cordero doesn't believe Rock killed ten people no matter what the FBI and CIA say it's just not true. Vanessa and rest of the Black Knights take a holiday to Costa Rico in the hopes of bring Rock back into the fold. Vanessa faces her fears to see that Rock gets his name cleared. Vanessa knows she should hide her feelings for Rock but somehow that doesn't work. Rock and Vanessa are running for their lives and every decision counts. Will Rock get to safety? Can Rock clear his name? Will either Vanessa or Rock admit their feelings? Your answers await you in Thrill Ride. Once again Ms. Walker rocked my reading world with Thrill Ride. Rock is total badass character that knows how to survive but can't seem to survive his heart. Vanessa is completely no sense person that rocks as heroine. I love the military aspect of these books which also include badass motorcycle shop too. With each book this series gets better and better. The characters are real, honest, down to earth, compelling, and interesting. The story sucks you in from first to last page. This series and author are must for any reading list.

4.25 stars:  THRILL RIDE is the fourth instalment in Julie Ann Walker’s adult, contemporary, romantic suspense series-Black Knight Inc. The focus of the series is on a group of former SEALs, FBI and Special Ops soldiers under the direction of Frank ‘Boss’ Knight. This is ex Navy SEAL Richard ‘Rock’ Babineaux and communication specialist Vanessa Cordova’s storyline. Rock has been missing for six months and the Department of Defense (DOD) has labeled the quiet Cajun as a rogue agent. Refusing to accept that Rock has turned his back on the American people, the Black Knights and Vanessa set out to prove that their friend and fellow operative has been set up to take a fall. The storyline follows Vanessa as she sets out to find Rock-from Chicago to Costa Rica- Vanessa knows that Rock is innocent of the crimes he has been accused of committing but staying under the CIA radar will prove to be a deadly and combative mission. With Black Op soldiers not far behind, Vanessa and the agents of BKI will discover that Rock has no plans to return in order to protect those that he loves. The relationship between Rock and Vanessa begins as colleagues to friends and lovers. The sexual tension is high as Rock continues to push Vanessa away at ever opportunity even though he is a man who has lost his heart to the feisty communications specialist. From the jungles of Costa Rica to the BKI warehouse, Vanessa will prove her love time and again by risking everything to protect Rock from the CIA and himself. Julie Ann Walker pulls the reader into a story of mystery and suspense. We experience the pain of the utmost betrayal when a man must face the reality of what he has done and the person(s) pulling the strings. The storyline is fast paced with just enough background information that the reader is well aware of the history and the men of the BKI-many of the previous storyline characters play active secondary roles that bring a familiarity of family and friends. THRILL RIDE is a wonderful story of friendship and love; betrayal and heartbreaking guilt; mystery and suspense. You can’t help but feel for a man forced to do something that he believes to be true but in the end discovers that everything had been a set up from the start. Julie Ann Walker writes a captivating and entertaining storyline that will have you on the edge of your seat waiting for the truth to finally be told.
