She’s got three rules:
1. Trust no one… Eve Edens has been abandoned, used, or manipulated by almost everyone she’s ever met. Born into ridiculous wealth, she’s dealt with the petty jealousies and sordid little resentments for nearly thirty years. But after three botched attempts on her life, she can no longer ignore the truth. Someone wants her dead.
2. Avoid the bad boys at all costs… William “Wild Bill” Reichert, the wonderfully sexy boy who abandoned her years ago, is back in town. Only he’s no boy. Now he’s a covert operative – and he’s all man. When Eve hires Bill to help her discover who is behind the attacks, Bill soon comes to suspect it’s someone much closer to Eve than she dares to believe.
3. And never fall for the same ruse twice… The search for the killer takes Bill and Eve deep into the dark secrets and strange world of the rich and famous, and into the heart of red-hot passion re-ignited by the peril that threatens to consume them both. But does Eve dare risk her heart on Bill a second time?
3 out of 5 stars
So book 5 in the Black Knights series follows “Wild” Bill Reichert, Becky (book 2) Reichert’s brother and her best friend, Eve Edens. Someone is trying to kill Eve, and she turns to Bill for help because the Chicago PD doesn’t believe someone is out to get her.
I have a few complaints about this book. One, it was very “detail and thought” heavy. Pages and pages of thoughts. It was also kind of annoying that it took until 76% into the book for some “sparks” to fly.
The story behind Eve’s troubles was predictable, but also pretty interesting. I’m way too invested in these characters to stop reading now.
