    Fast-paced and action-packed

    Fast-paced and action-packed, this book was a perfect ending to a wonderful series. Angel and Sonya were perfect together. This is not quite a second chance romance since Sonya doesn’t realize that Angel is really the former love of her life who she thought died 10 years ago, but this one still packs all the emotional twists and turns you would expect as these two find themselves unable to stay away from each other as they try to stay alive and out of the hands of the enemy. And although I know why Angel had to keep his identity a secret, watching Sonya see little things of her lost love in Angel and then doubting herself was tough. As part of the story we get to spend time with other members of the BKI team. From the constant snark to the total commitment the team has to each mission and to each other, it’s hard not to love this group. And Ace and Rusty’s story was one of my favorite parts of the book. Listening to them constantly sniping at one another, watching Rusty sacrifice himself, and then getting to see these two get their HEA was so satisfying. And I absolutely loved Rusty’s mother! With so many hidden and double identities, the threat of nuclear destruction, and some secrets that were well played, this book was an intense read that really had you feeling like you were in the middle of this mission. The emotion was raw at times, the pages were filled with tension, and the plot had a grit to it that had me wanting to read faster…but at the same time slow down since this is the last book in the series. I have really enjoyed this series and am sad to see it come to an end. Although this one can be read as a standalone, I would recommend starting at the beginning – this series is filled with great characters who all have their own wonderful story and some things will make more sense having read the other books. As for the series, story lines were wrapped up nicely and the stage has been set for the possibility of spin-offs and new characters – so bring it on! I highly recommend this one – and the entire series! I received an advance reader copy from the publisher via NetGalley which I voluntarily reviewed.

    Sad to see the ending of a great series

    Jamin “Angel” Agassi is a man of many secrets. An operative for the Black Knights Inc., he infiltrates the crime lord Spider’s guarded lair. Angel encounters the one woman he could never forget. Sonya’s presence complicates his mission of bringing the crime syndicate to justice. On the run from the Spider’s hired thugs, Angel decides to act on his second chance with Sonya. Can Angel trust Sonya enough to reveal his true identity? Will he be able to protect her from the Spider’s sinister machinations? Sonya Butler is an undercover Interpol agent. She is assigned to infiltrate the Spider’s crime ring and collect proof of his crimes. Angel reminds Sonya of her deceased lover. She both fears and desires the shadowy, enigmatic operative. When their missions go AWOL, Sonya agrees to assist Angel in bringing Spider down. They act on their shared attraction while eluding Spider and his thugs. Will Sonya figure out who Angel truly is? Or will the Spider catch them before she gets the chance? I have been curious about Angel and his elusive background since his introduction. I love how the author drops hints throughout the series about his past. Angel has sacrificed much to keep the world safe from terrorists. I like how he purposely antagonized Spider, refusing to give Spider any middle ground. But what I love most about Angel is his nobility. Instead of acting on their shared attraction, he stopped at the first sign of Sonya’s distraught state. The only gripe I have on Angel is why he never once looked in on Sonya in the ten years they were apart. Sonya is a smart and diligent woman. I admire her temerity of going undercover to obtain the necessary proof of Spider’s crimes and sins. Sonya did not allow agencies’ differences or jurisdiction to interfere in bringing the evil mastermind to justice. I like how she instead focused on helping Angel rid the world of Spider’s diabolical influence. But what I like the most about Sonya is how she instinctively trusts Angel even though his size often intimidates and frightens her. BUILT TO LAST is book twelve in Julie Ann Walker’s romantic suspense series, BLACK KNIGHT INC. My only grievance with the book is that I’d prefer Ace and Rusty’s romance to be a novella than a side romance. I feel there could have been more between them than what we got in the book. What I am truly going to miss the most about this series is Ozzie and his love of 80’s music and movie witticisms. BUILT TO LAST is a suspenseful, second-chance story that shows it is never too late to start again. I am sad to see this fun and action-packed series come to an end. However, I am eager to see what the author has in the works. review courtesy of romance junkies

    Saved the best for last!

    And lastly, there was Angel, and Ace, but mostly Angel. The BKI series closes with this book, and in the epilogue we get to catch up with all the couples, but before that happens, we get Angel and Sonya's story, and Ace and Rusty get their HEA as well Angel has always been behind the scenes, mysterious, not sociable, and hidden away, seemingly to do the darkest of the work that needed to be done. It was surprising how emotional and sweet he was, because we really didn't get to see much of him in the other books. Sonya is near perfection and the perfect ying to his yang. They have so much to work out for their second chance romance, my heart broke for them both In the previous book, we have our MM couple, Rusty and Ace, who had a shot at love, but turned it down. They are in a secondary role here, but just as touching to see them work things out. We also get some series favourites helping out our couples, with Ghost, Boss, Rock, and Ozzie along for the main ride This book was a perfect ending to the series, with everyone having plans for their next phase of life with their loved one by their side - awesome!
