Publisher's Summary

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.

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.

Virgin Audiobook Listener

So this was my first time listening to an Audiobook. I was skeptical because I didn’t think I could listen to someone reading to me as an adult. But Emily was great. Kept me into the book. I’m still going to read the book but it was great listening while cooking and driving and doing laundry. Of course Julie Ann Walker is a fave of mine so I knew the book would be good and I wasn’t disappointed!

Another great book

I just love the Black Knights series. I’m not looking forward to this series ending.

Not my favorite of the series

I’ve loved this series, but this one fell somewhat flat. It was filled with overused cliches and lacked the depth of the other books. I realize that was Part of Emily’s character, but it really began to interfere with the enjoyment I should have gotten from the story.

If you’ve read the series, you need to listen to this one just to stay on top of what’s going on. I did, however, want to not bother finishing it several times.

Awful!

The voice of the reader sounds like the boy from TV series, The Goldbergs. I could not listen to more than one chapter.

Terrible narration

I can’t comment on the story for this book and it may be brilliant but I had to stop listening as the narration is appalling. It sounded as if it had been read by a computer- my 5 year old reads with more emotion. Complete waste of money.

Weakest book in the series

I hate giving up on books but I've really struggled with this audio book. I've enjoyed all the others in the series, and was looking forward to this one but I've been battling with it right from the beginning.

Firstly, if you're British you'll find the accents absolutely impossible to listen to! Rip your ears out terrible. The narrator's crappy English accent wasn't so noticeable in previous stories as Christian's only appeared briefly in them but as he's the main character in this story it really stands out. The author's Britishisms are also rubbish and grating, we don't walk around saying things like "blimey"!

Then there's the weak storyline. The romance between Christian and Emily feels forced and like the author had run out of characters to put together.

No idea what happens in the end as I've tried 3 times to listen to this audiobook in the hope the story would get better, but it didn't and I can't bear to listen any more.
