Story Overview:
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...

My Review:
*eeps* The final book in the series? I'm not sure I can live without the BKI guys in my life, but luckily there was a hint at the end that there might be more to come. *crossing fingers*

Angel is probably the most elusive of the BKI guys. No one knows the real story about his history, and when it comes out in this book...man, it's crazy. But the one person who knew Angel before his world become complicated and dangerous and impossible...was Sonya. She still mourns the man that died 10 years ago...and throughout most this book she doesn't know that Angel is that man. 

Gah, it's so good. The build-up and the suspense for when she'll find out is intense. But the payoff when that happens is worth the wait. Seriously, this book is so good. And that's before you get to all the side stories that are happening alongside the main romance. 

The team are finally close to taking down the bad guy they've been after for several books. There's another side romance that I adored between Rusty and Ace. Gah, those two guys...their romantic payoff was incredible, too. 

It was just the perfect ending for the series (that I hope isn't truly ending and is spawning off in a side series). But regardless, this particular story was fantastic. The action was non-stop from page one. And yes, there were a lot of things going on, but never once did I get impatient when we switched POV characters because all of them had great scenes happening. I just couldn't read it all fast enough...at the same time, I never wanted the book to end. 

This has been an incredible series and Julie Ann Walker ended it with perfection. I loved this book.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest and voluntary review.
