Julie Ann Walker does it again! Fuel for Fire is another great story in her “Black Knights Inc. Series.” I’ve been a fan of this series for years now, and get excited every time a new book comes out. Julie Ann Walker is a master when it comes to combining suspense, comedy, and sexy romance into a story.
We’ve known Dagan Zoelner since the first book in the series, and hearing he’ll get his own book made me ecstatic. We all know he hasn’t has the easiest past—what with being fired from the CIA and getting involved with a corrupt senator before joining the boys at Black Knight Inc. I went from thinking he’s the bad guy, to loving and rooting from him to have his happy ending.
Chelsea Duvall is his perfect counterpart. They’ve known each other for years, ever since his days with the CIA, but mutual insecurities and secrets have kept them apart. Now they’re both working with BKI and the sparks keep flying. When they are thrown into a dangerous situation, all bets are off and they grab onto their connection with everything they have. But will it be enough? Or is the past riddled with secrets going to destroy them?
I loved every second of this story—the chemistry between Chelsea and Dagan, the suspense, the hilarious banter between them, and the side character who complement each story perfectly, while at the same time setting up the scene for the future flawlessly. Julie Ann Walker manages to pull me into her stories each time—she makes me cheer her characters on, laugh at their antics, and wanting to hit them over the head sometimes.
I loved seeing Dagan and Chelsea admit their love for one another. Love does conquer it all with these two. I understand why Chelsea did what she did, and I loved seeing Dagan’s reaction going from pissed to hurt to heartbroken before he was able to forgive.
Julie Ann Walker has an uncanny ability to make her characters relatable while still putting them in situations none of us will ever encounter. This, and her flawless writing, is the main reason I love her books. Her words pull you in, keep you entranced and gripping your seat until the last page.
Fuel of Fire is another amazing addition to the “Black Knights Inc. Series.” For any lover of hot suspense novels, this is the next book for you. You don’t want to miss out on these two well-written and amazing characters.
