I had a hard time getting into this book at first. In the beginning it reminded me a lot of the Steele Street series. There are motorcycles instead of cars as the cover for the black ops group but it was also the way everyone had a "badger to woodchuck" code name. It suffers a little from first book in the series syndrome as well as there are a lot of characters introduced.

That comparison didn't last though I ended up enjoying it on its own merits. Given the start and the fact that there's a lot of humor in it I didn't expect the book to take such a dark turn. I certainly figured out Nate's big secret but it was disturbing to read about it even in a flashback. I also thought the author did a good job showing Ali to be a civilian in over her head. She didn't do anything dumb but one minute she'd be steady and then she'd learn or do something that would make her stomach turn. I appreciate it when it's not that easy for a civilian to just take part in these operations with little or no training.

The romance is good, if not overly steamy. Nate's history add a layer of pathos and angst to the typical best friend's little sister conflict. ( )

I really enjoyed this book. The characters seemed, real. Their personalities were ones you'd meet on the street. Ali was really funny and sweet, I definitely enjoyed reading about her and Nate. The rest of the guys were really cool. You could feel their pain and emotions, the writing was really evocative. ( )

Wow, loved it! The characters were great, the story was thrilling and I couldn't put it down. Can't wait to read the next one! ( )

Ex-Marines riding Harley's? Heck yeah! Hell on Wheels is a combination of adventure, grief, and love wrapped up in one nice package. I really enjoyed this book. I thought the characters were all awesome. Kinda sad that I thought some of the background characters took the spotlight from Ali & Ghost. But, I still love them both! In the beginning, we're introduced to Ali & Nate (Ghost) who are sitting in the car after Nate tells Ali & her family that his best friend, their son/brother, Grigg Morgan passed away. Ali is trying to be strong & Nate is trying to comfort Ali without getting too close. The attraction between Nate & Ali is there, but Nate won't let it go too far. After all, Ali is his best friends little sister.

So, we're all used to the guy doing all the chasing and the girl playing hard to get... well I'll be damned if the roles were switched. Nate "Ghost" Weller had a hard time keeping Ali's hands off of him when he was trying so hard to control his own urges to just take her right then and there. Least she knows what she wants right? Go on girl! I really liked that about Ali. She had no problem speaking her mind and standing up for what she wants. Girl has a backbone and they tried to shelter her? She wouldn't have none of that! Julie Ann Walker definitely takes you on a ride, you can feel the grief and the sorrow that the characters are feeling, the longing and lust that others are feeling, among the other emotions of the background characters. Kind of a rollercoaster ride, but a really good one.

I would definitely recommend this book. I think Hell on Wheels was a great introduction to Black Knights Inc. and I am definitely looking forward to reading the next book in this installment (in which you get peaks into within Hell on Wheels) So that was a teaser all its own. If you love yourself some contemporary romance that has hawt, sezzy, Harley ridin' hunks in it, then Hell on Wheels is definitely for you :) ( )

Book description
Black Knights Inc. -- Behind the facade of their tricked-out motorcycle shop is an elite special ops team assigned the jobs too hot for anyone else to handle.

HOLD ON TIGHT...
Ex-Marine Nate "Ghost" Weller is an expert at keeping his cool -- and his distance -- which makes him one hell of a sniper. It's also how he keeps his feelings for Ali Morgan in check. Sweet, sexy Ali has always revved his engine, but she's his best friend's baby sister...and totally off limits.

ROUGH ROAD AHEAD
Ali's never seen anything sexier than Nate Weller straddling his custom Harley -- or the flash of danger in his eyes when she tells him she's in trouble. First something happened to her brother, and now she's become the target of a nasty international organization. With Nate, her life is in the most capable hands possible -- but her heart is another story altogether.
