She's attracted to him. He's attracted to her. So what is preventing them from hooking up? Emily Scott had a rough childhood and has no desire to commit to anyone for fear that she will repeat history. Christian Watson is in love with her and is trying to break through her barriers. This is the jist of the relationship throughout the book as the team travels through Cornwall, England trying to escape the bloody island and return to Chicago. What an adventure this team had in England. First, they set off a car bomb to escape the press that uncovered Christian's identity and history and where they were hiding out. Next, they escape two brothers intent on revenge at the local private hangar but not without consequence - the pilot is shot thereby delaying their flight home. Finally, they make their final escape from the vengeful brothers at Trenor Manor, but not without casualties - both brothers are killed. During all of this, Spider has been put on the back burner. I love how the book ends with the suspected identity of Spider being revealed. I say suspected identity because in the previous book everyone thought Spider was Rupert Morrison and that turned out not to be true. So is this new possibility the real Spider? Only time will tell. Absolutely a must read book. The history of the characters and the adventure were fun to read. And what will happen with Rusty and Ace? And what will happen when BKI goes civilian? Only time will tell.

Christian is from England with a sexy accent and Emily is from Chicago, which is my hometown. This story makes me feel as I could know them is real life and be part of their escapades. For me, it had the right amount of mischievousness, action and romance. I so enjoyed Hot Pursuit! Julie Ann Walker has the right touch with her words to tell her stories. I now have to backtrack to catch on the the series!

Love this series, however this story felt very repetitive. And very quick. The ending was very abrupt.

You can't help but connect with the men and women of BKI and in "Hot Pursuit" Christian finally gets his story. And wow what a story he got! The team of Christian, Emily, Ace, Angel, and Rusty are working to get out of England with Christian and Emily finally getting their romance. It takes off at a fast pace, with a constant banter and sexual innuendos between Christian and Emily. We learn more about Christian and Emily, their pasts, what makes them tick, and what makes them who they are and why. I absolutely love it when Emily tells Christian about his Watsoning (his last name is Watson). That was a hoot and just plain fun on Emily's part. Emily has met her match in Christian, and he is one that can wait her out when it comes to her finally realizing she is in love with him. Took a long while to get there, but the two of them finally get their HEA, much to the delight of the rest of BKI. Although a standalone, all books are also interconnected. If you love romantic suspense, once you read this one, you won't be able to help yourself, but to go back and read other books in the Black Knights Inc. Series. I know that the series eventually has to come to an end, but I will look forward to reading the next series from Julie Ann Walker. I would like to thank NetGalley and Sourcebooks for gifting me "Hot Pursuit". My opinion is my own.This is mine. 5 Stars!

Great story. Christian & Emily’s dance keeps you reading, laughing & sometimes frustrated. Like all the Black Knights before it, it is entertaining & Hot !!!

I LOVE the men of BKI, but Christian just might be my favorite. He’s written to be a strong character, and he’s a perfect lead throughout the book. Emily made a great match for him; I love reading about a strong willed female character. I look forward to the next book in the series.

I have followed the Black Knights Inc. series since the beginning - before I was even blogging - and over the time I have completely fallen in love with the gang and the author's style of writing. With the gang, you can always count on them having your back, going to the extreme lengths to keep you safe and alive, while they picker, argue, mess with your head through every step of it. The author obviously is familiar with the slang, the dialects, and accents. They are all part of the different characters in the series, partly defining them and their past. She writes over the top emotions and expressions, and though I usually prefer digging deeper than going over the top, Ms. Walker manages to do both when it comes to the expressions and emotions of the characters. The feelings are raw and real, and the way they display them at times peculiar yet genuine. Hot Pursuit is the book eleven in the series, and the world the current characters live in is rather far removed from the beginning of the series. Christian Watson and Emily Scott have been bickering and flirting for three books now, so to get the full impact of their developing relationship, I would start from earlier. The chemistry between Christian and Emily is scorching hot, they are so perfect for each other, if only they dared to take the step forward. They both have secrets they would rather hide for the rest of their lives but to make the new connection to work between them, they peddle the secrets for favors and thus get to know each other deeply and intimately. As usual, there is a secondary couple developing in the story and this time it is male/male couple Ace and Rusty. I like the chemistry between them, they are obviously attracted to each other, yet the fact that Rusty is not willing to come out and be openly gay keeps Ace from getting into a relationship with him. There's more focus on the relationship drama and progress than suspense and action in this book. The burst of attacks and threats are short, intense, and deadly. The first part of the tale is very familiar since it is happening parallel to the previous book as the team split and had to escape from the Great Brittain separately. It is known that this exhilarating, thrilling, and humorous romantic suspense series is coming to the end, what I am curious about is if there is a book or two still in the works, will Angel find his match in the mysterious lady who was introduced at the end, and will Rusty and Ace find a peaceful co-existence or will their ways depart as the Black Knights Inc. closes its doors. The heat factor is high, the emotions all over the map, the danger is constant and lethal, the bad language as natural to the characters as breathing, yet the stories are delightfully adorable, just don't tell the Boss I called him that... ~ Four Spoons

I really loved the way Christian and Emily’s story started. They are so funny. Christian had to prove to her that she was completely different then the way she was raised. I can’t wait for the next book Angel. Will we finally get to know who is?

4.25 stars--exciting and provocative 4.25 stars--HOT PURSUIT is the eleventh installment in Julie Ann Walker’s contemporary, adult BLACK KNIGHTS INC romantic suspense /military, action series focusing on an elite group of ex Navy SEALS, FBI, CIA and military heroes headquartered at a custom motorcycle shop in Chicago known as Black Knights Inc. The men and women of Black Knights Inc. are so far under the radar that they are blacker than Black Ops. This is former British SAS agent Christian Watson, and former CIA employee Emily Scott. HOT PURSUIT can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story lines is revealed where necessary. Both Christian and Emily were introduced in earlier installments. Told from several third person perspectives including Christian and Emily HOT PURSUIT picks up immediately upon the events of book ten FUEL FOR FIRE, and follows Christian, Emily, Jamin ‘Angel’ Agassi, former Navy pilot Colby Ventura, and former CIA operative Rusty Parker through Europe as they continue their search for the mysterious and elusive ‘Spider’ whose illegal business operations and ties have endangered the BKI team members both in Europe and back home. As the group endeavors to stay off the radar, the team becomes embroiled in a personal vendetta against one of their own. What ensues is the struggle to stay one step ahead of someone gunning for our story line hero; and the building but acrimonious relationship between Christian and Emily. Emily and Christian have been dancing around one another for a sometime but our heroine is reluctant to get involved with Christian Watson. Christian’s past is darkened by memories of an abusive childhood, as well as time spent as a prisoner of war where he faced torture, and threats from his captors. Emily’s childhood and her parent’s numerous marriages have become the barometer against which she bases all of her own relationships and interactions, a barometer that refuses to allow our heroine to fall in love. Christian is a sexy, tattooed, and brooding well-dressed Brit who pushes all of Emily’s buttons- buttons she pushes back against Christian in return. The $ex scenes are limited, seductive and intense without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text. There is a building story line and relationship between Colby Ventura and Rusty Parker. Both men are attracted to one another but Rusty has yet to come out of the proverbial closet and in this Colby struggles with his attraction to a man who is unwilling to admit the truth. A history of love and loss forces Colby to reveal the how and why of his battle with the man to whom he is attracted but Rusty’s reasons are in direct conflict to Colby’s previous loss. HOT PURSUIT is a story of friendship and love; heartbreak and painful memories; revelations, the truth, intrigue, betrayal and revenge. The premise is exciting and entertaining; the characters are colorful, charismatic and dynamic-there is plenty of sexually charged back and forth banter; the romance is provocative. The story line involving the person known as ‘Spider’ was virtually non-existent but new revelations and information reveal a possible connection to one of the BKI heroes. Julie Ann Walker’s BLACK KNIGHTS INC. is an addicting series with great character interactions that humanize the heroes and heroines we love to follow.

I love Christian and Emily!!! They have been sniping at each other for a few books now and their chemistry was explosive! Neither had an easy start in life, but both seem to live life on their own terms and that includes loving each other. While I was happy to have the insight into Ace and Rusty, I think a little too much time was spent on their issues. Of course, with that said, I can't wait to read their book and Angel's!

This is book #11, in the Black Knights, Inc. series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment & understanding of the series itself, I recommend reading these in order. Emily & Christian are at one another's throats on more than one occasion. It is becoming the norm. The chemistry between them is boiling and wanting to explode. Christian knows he is hot for his co-worker. He tries very hard to deny it to himself, as well as others. When they have to work together to get home from across the pond, it may be more than the team can take. Such a sexy and sizzling story. I love the banter and the heat between the main MC's. There are more favorites from the series inside this book as well. Add in another suspenseful plot - and it is a super read. ***This early copy was given by Netgalley and its publishers, in exchange for an honest review.

I have been a big fan of Julie’s writing and this series since the beginning and my favorite book in it to date has always been In Rides Trouble, until Hot Pursuit that is. What had me hooked with this series and with her second book was the quick and witty dialogue whether inner or direct which emitted from her well thought out characters she created. The only description I can use to give it justice is: Pow, Pow, Pow and Pow! It would have me laughing so hard, my side would hurt. Same experience with Christian and Emily’s book, Hot Pursuit and what a surprise Christian turned out to be. Not who I thought he would be at all, given he’s so vastly different from all the other Black Knights. Like Becky, Emily held her own and it worked. The chemistry between the two was electric and the sub stories within kept you engaged and wanting more. This book, Hot Pursuit, officially moved Julie into my top ten favorite series of all time. I don’t alter that list very often, but this offering secured her rank and was worth moving other writers down. July cannot come fast enough as her fans, namely me, have been dying to know Angel’s story for years, and we’re finally going to get it. I’m saddened it will be the end of this incredible journey for the Black Knights and the series, but she couldn’t have chosen a better character to leave until last. Congratulations Julie on another phenomenal installment and I look forward to reading your others.

This is the second book that I have read of Julie Walkers and the second that I have read in the Black Knights Inc trilogy which is a 11 book series so far. After meeting the two main characters Christian and Emily in the last book and seeing the potential romance connection that was growing between the two I was excited to learn that their story was the next one that she was going to tackle. Julie does a great job of mixing romance, suspense and thriller all in one book. I think she did a great job of also introducing them in the last book and then seamlessly segueing their story into this book. I also really enjoyed the chemistry that she built between them. That made the story very realistic. In addition to the storyline and characters I also liked the way that she described the setting of the book. It really made you feel like you were there with them in Europe. Can't wait to read Angel's story next.

Worth the wait! If you've read book 10 in the series ( Fuel for Fire ), then you had more than an inkling that Christian and Emily's story was going to be something else. Their constant bickering with and "annoying" each other made it clear to everyone but them (or was it?) that these two had chemistry to spare. You just knew their book was gonna be good--and it didn't disappoint! Hot Pursuit begins where the last book left off, with four BKI employees still stuck in England, trying to get back to Chicago. The infamous and elusive Spider's still at large, but now another, more immediate enemy is at hand, and Christian, Emily, and the rest of the gang spend most of the book dealing with danger from that front. But those gosh-darn hormones, they keep getting in the way... I loved watching Christian win Emily over to his way of thinking (the car wash scene--whew, that one give you some niiiiiice imagery to ponder!) and am really looking forward to seeing them be all couple-y like in the next book ( Built to Last --Angel's book, woot!) but please, please tell me that Ace and Rusty are at least getting a novella (though really, they deserve their own full-length book!) Rating: 4 1/2 stars / A- I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

Christian is English and was a SAS, Special Air Service. He is handsome, funny, and had a rough childhood. He was captured by Iraqi police officers and tortured. He was thrown under the bus when a shootout occurs and several are killed. Emily is the office manager at BKI. She is witty, pretty, and independent. She doesn't believe in love because of her family. She grew up in Chicago and acts tough but is still a little girl wanting to loved on the inside. Someone has leaked Christian's name to the press and they are camped out in front of the little cottage they are staying in. They must somehow get to the airport where a pilot is waiting to take them home but someone is chasing them and catches them at the hangar. They hide in a old house turned into a museum. Christian decides to make his move on Emily when he, Emily, Angel, Ace and Rusty get stuck in the manor. She agrees but just as long as Christian doesn't fall in love with her. She doesn't want to lose the family she has at BKI. Can two people who constantly bicker keep their relationship on a friends with benefits only? Will Christian wear her down and get her to admit her feelings? Or will he lose the only woman he has ever said ' I love you' to? Funny, sexy, and fast paced. I laughed and wanted to cry for them both. * Voluntarily reviewed this for Netgalley *

I’m so in love. SO SO in love with Christian. Ozzie will always be my main BKI man but Christian and his smooth talking ways have rushed right up to second place. We’ve spent years alongside the BKI crew and nothing has been as entertaining as the back and forth teasing between the former SAS operative Christian and the sassy-mouthed office manager Emily. There’s always been a clear chemistry just waiting to burst the sheets in to flames but Walker delivers in just the right amounts to readers. We pick up on Christian, Emily, Angel, Ace, and Rusty right where they split from Dagan’s book previously. As they are on the run for their lives, it clicks for Christian that he truly does love Emily. He spends time wooing her while letting her think that he’s only in it for the sex. While a new and mysterious villain comes after Christian, he’s got to also battle Emil’s fear of her past. There’s no lack of action in Hot Pursuit. The classic kick butt knights are still kicking, even when on the run. And ACE…..OMG….I want Ace to have his own book! This plot line has got to be filled with gold and I’m really hoping that Walker can finish it out to the direction I believe it’s heading. I won’t spoil that one for y’all As for our next Knight…Angel’s mysteries are about to unravel…

The BKI series has been my favorite since the very first book! I have anxiously waited for each love story to unfold and FINALLY Christian, the HOTTEST Brit since Beckham has met his match with Emily!!! Their story has been building for a few books now and finally comes with a HEA that has this fan so happy I cried tears of JOY!!! I was provided an ARC of this book for my honest opinion. SLRice

Hot Pursuit was well worth waiting for. Christian had to endure unspeakable horrors as a child and Emily's wasn't much better. The verbal sparring between them is hilarious. When they finally stop fighting their attraction to each other the results are explosive. We also find out who the elusive "Spider" is! I did NOT see that coming. You need to buy this book post haste. I promise you won't regret it. Sorry no teasers in this review.

Hot Pursuit takes readers from where Fuel for Fire leaves off. After separating from two members of the BKI group when a mission goes south, members Christian, Emily, Angel, Ace and Emily’s friend Rusty are on a quest to return to the states. While you don’t have to read the rest of the novels in the Black Knight Inc series, I would highly recommend it. This novel, like the others, is action pack and high physical/emotional intensity. I enjoyed the batter between Christian and Emily. This novel was full of sexual tension and laugh out loud moments. While trying to leave Christian’s homeland country England, his past comes back to haunt him and put a hinder to their quick escape. Forces into life threatening circumstance, heighten emotion, and close quarters, their underline sexual tension lights on fire. Christian will stop at nothing to have and protect Emily. Emily is a once burned twice cautious kind of girl but she just can’t resist all that is Christian Watson. I loved reading Hot Pursuit and the journey to Christian and Emily’s HEA. I can’t wait to read the next book! Give me some Angel! (Hopeful) I would give this novel a 5-star review! (I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this title.)
