Masterful, mysterious, and completely ruthless, Jamin “Angel” Agassi joined the Black Knights Inc. after a mission-gone-wrong forced him to undergo extensive plastic surgery and change his name. He's going to bring down the world's worst crime syndicate, and hopefully keep Sonya Butler, a love from his past, from discovering who he really is...
When a dark-eyed stranger gets caught up in Sonya’s latest mission, she starts to question all her hard-won instincts. Something about Angel tells her he's more than he seems, and sometimes, when she least expects it, he reminds her of a man she used to know. As the bullets fly, she realizes that in love and war nothing is ever what it seems...
Last book in this series. Julie Ann Walker wraps up for Black Knights Inc series with Angel's book. Angel has been a bit of Enigma since he showed up in this series. He's just kind been here and there and we didn't know anything about him. Sonya meets Angel on her latest mission. Both think each other is a bad guy until a confrontation shows the truth. Angel knows Sonya or at least he did in his past life before surgeries and a name change. A lot about Angel triggers Sonya's memories of a man she loved deeply before he was killed. What she doesn't know and what Angel doesn't want to tell her is he is that man. I have to say this is kind of a twofer because beside Angel's story we get the rest of Ace and Rusty's story. I enjoyed Sonya and Angel getting to know each other again but it kind of got old somewhere in the middle for a bit. I like that Sonya was more than she seemed at first. The more the story went on the more we knew about her and of course her life she has with Angel before his faked death and disappearance. Angel seems like the guy that nothing gets to him. Sonya get's to him and it just about destroys him when he realizes all he gave up all those years ago. Rusty and Ace are on this mission to finally catch Spider with Ozzie in tow. Both denying feelings for each other until one of them almost dies. Seeing that play out and the barriers Rusty thought he had with his family disappear was exciting. Great wrap up to the series and a huge hint at the end that it might not quite be over for some of the BKI guys. Julie Ann Walker is going to keep up guessing for a bit if we see these characters again and if so which ones.
