Rated 4 out of 5 by from 3.75 stars-action packed, suspense filled 3.75 stars--FULL THROTTLE is the seventh installment in Julie Ann Walker’s contemporary, adult Black Knights Inc romantic action/ suspense series focusing on an elite group of ex Navy SEALS, FBI, CIA and military heroes headquartered at a motorcycle shop known as Black Knights Inc. The men and women of Black Knights Inc are so far under the radar that they are blacker than Black Ops. This is Carlos ‘Steady’ Soto and Abby Thompson’s storyline- a friends to lovers trope with a slight second chance at love. Abby Thompson is the twenty seven year old daughter of the President of the USA, a botanist and currently in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on assignment. Eight years earlier Abby’s best friend was killed in a coffee shop explosion that was intended to take out the President’s daughter. With her security detail in place, Abby believes she is well protected from any personal threats against her life. Enter Carlos Soto, her best friend’s brother and one of the men hired as part of Abby’s protection team. Within a matter of minutes, most of the Secret Service Agents will be killed and Abby will be kidnapped and held hostage in places unknown. Told from several close third person points of view, the storyline finds Carlos going solo into the jungles of Malaysia searching for the woman that he loves. Eight years earlier, the then twenty five year old Carlos believed he was too old for Abby and now that her life has been threatened Carlos is determined to bring her home-at any cost. The relationship between Abby and Carlos is fraught with sexual tension, desire and lust. A good portion of the storyline finds Carlos is desperate need of sexual release and our couple takes the opportunity to explore one another while on the run. FULL THROTTLE takes the reader through the sweltering jungles and underbrush of Malaysia. Our couple will encounter charging elephants, fire ants, local tribesman and frequent gunfire. No place is safe; everyone becomes suspect; and the kidnappers are never very far behind. The secondary characters include a new team of Black Ops soldiers (or Alpha Platoon Boys) who quite possibly are the subject of future storylines or a possible spinoff series. We will be introduced to several friends and former soldiers whose job it is to protect and rescue those in need. Some of the previous storyline characters (Boss, Ozzie and Rock) play a small role in FULL THROTTLE but most of the focus is on Abby’s rescue and her relationship with Carlos-in this I missed the friendship and intimacy of the Black Knights Inc team. There is a possible romance developing between one of Abby’s Secret Service Agents Penni DePaul and Black Knights’ operative Dan ‘The Motor City Madman’. Dan’s story may be next when he volunteers to help bring in a former CIA agent who’s gone rogue. I did have a small issue with one particular aspect of the storyline and that was the continuous use of a juvenile like figure of speech and euphemisms. When our heroine cursed she would substitute words and phrases that made no particular sense or have anything to do with their current situation-e.g. Shitpickle/Sonofabiscuit/What the Friggin Sticks. She had no issues or problems using the proper terminology during sex, but she was adverse to using graphic language when trying to make a point-whether this particular style of language was intended to add humor, I am not sure, but it was distracting in an adult storyline and I felt disconnected whenever word substitutions were used. FULL THROTTLE is an action packed, suspense filled story about terrorism and extremists threats against the President’s family. There is intrigue, mystery and romance; secrets and anticipation; betrayal and loss. Julie Ann Walker adds another exciting storyline and sexy hero to the Black Knights Inc series with Carlos and Abby’s story.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Read When I start a new series you always wonder will the next book be as good as the first and so on. I can honestly answer that with a yes. It was wonderful reading Carlos story and his beginnings. Carlos twin sister Rose was to be the tutor for a young eighteen year old Abby Thompson. Abby had always had a thing for the handsome Carlos Soto. When Rose is killed in a terrorist bombing Abby blames herself, and pushes Carlos await out of guilt. Eight years later Carlos along with Ozzie, and Dan he is sent to keep an eye on the presidents daughter, Abby Thompson. When Abby is kidnapped Carlos will do everything in his power to bring her home and keep her in his life. With this story i was also glad to see Dan putting his life back together after the death of his wife. I look forward to his story.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from So so Not as good as her other Black Knights books. The story took a back seat to the very long and descriptive sex scenes. It actually became boring at points.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WoW! Just wow! This novel was intense on many different levels. Suspense, emotions, and action all runs high throughout this explosive novel. This was a gripping story that I couldn`t put down. Walker’s graphic descriptions bring this story to life in a vivid way. The storyline itself is completely unforgettable and wildly entertaining. Walker’s well written, approachable, and captivating novel had me on the edge of my seat throughout. Walker`s very personal characters development puts you right into the thick of this tale. You get to know the main characters on all fronts and really get inside the main characters’ heads. I loved the different views and emotions that we got to experience as Walker switched perspectives from one character to the other. I enjoyed both his and her sides of the story. The narrative really makes the characters pop. Their personalities shine through in a big way. I also found their histories, both combined and separate, to be very intriguing. There really are no words to describe the fantastic connection that I felt with these characters. This action packed and suspenseful novel is definitely one that you won`t want to miss! Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.
