He’s the bad boy she’s always wanted…

Nate “Ghost” Weller has loved Ali Morgan nearly half his life. But he’s done something so heinous he’s convinced she’ll never forgive him if she discovers the truth, so he keeps his feelings and his secrets to himself. Then she blows into town with a mother lode of bad guys on her tail and Nate can’t deny she’s in serious trouble. Unfortunately, he’s the only one who can help her.

She’s the good girl he’s kept at arm’s length…

Ali knows Nate as the most solemn, aloof man on the planet. Sadly, he’s also the sexiest. For years she’s avoided him, unable to stomach his dark scowls and brooding silences… especially when she secretly yearns for his touch. Now she must rely on him to save her from the malevolent shadows ghosting her every move. When the bullets explode, so does their passion. But can love really conquer all? Or are some things just too terrible to forgive?

First thought when finished: I can’t wait for Frank and Becky’s Book!

What I Thought of the Story: Hell on Wheels is full of action, fun, and adrenaline rushes! I love the idea of the Black Knights as a team existing to kick ass and take names when the Government can’t. These are often my fantasy alpha men. I really appreciated the way that Julie Ann Walker introduced the team to both us and Ali. It was great to meet them as we walked into the compound. They each have very unique skill sets BUT they take the initiative to learn other skills too. Nate, the lead in this story, is out to protect his Best Friend’s sister Ali (whom he has loved for 10 years). I loved the methodical way that Nate and the team took each step as it came to them. Was it over the top in some areas? Sure but he was emotionally involved! I think otherwise they broke down this case like they would any other. I loved that!

What I Thought of the Characters: Nate’s language (word splicing) tended to get on my nerves but otherwise he was the strong, silent type of alpha hero. He didn’t say much but I loved hearing his thoughts. I thought Ali’s outbursts about his communication skills were dead-on. There were a few cheers from me anytime she went off on him! Poor Ali, it is hard to look strong when every other person in the story is used to this world and she is the fish out of water. It sometimes made her look weak but I thought she held up remarkably well for a kindergarten teacher. She wasn’t the strongest person but I felt she was perfect for Nate. I love the rest of the Black Knights and the 2 gals that were introduced in Hell on Wheels!

Final Thought: Great opening to a series that I think each book will be stronger than the last!

      Oh it was fantastic. Some people had a problem with her being “weak” but to me, I am not sure that Kindergarten teachers are supposed to be built with the gumption to handle guns, someone trying to kill you, and top secret activities. I thought she was very strong for who she was 🙂

    Sounds like a great book. I bought it on release date because the summary made it sound worth a shot, but now you gave me more reasons to read it now. And the next one is out in September super fast.
