      2-1/2 starsI feel like Ms. Walker's writing voice has changed over the course of her books, because I loved the first few she wrote, but have been disliking her later books more and more. I would go back and re-read her older books to check that hypothesis if I cared more, but my TBR pile is too massive to easily allow for that. I don't like her writing style anymore- I find it grating. Too many cutesy terms. Too much weird slang. And the constant repetition of a particular writing quirk is real [...]

You do need to read the books in order to get the best understanding of the relationships and past for each of the Black Knight boy's.I have been having so much fun reading this series. I was sucked in again, blown away, and could not put the book down. So much suspense, action, adventure, and romance. I love the family feel that these guys and ladies have. Such great character [...]

      A much deserved second chance at love for a man who we’ve seen in so much pain throughout this series since his wife was tragically gun down in front of BKI headquarters 2 years ago. Dan Currington drowned his grief in a bottle. He had lost his will to live. But with the help of his friends and AA he has come back to the land of the living. Two months ago on a fateful mission in Kuala Lumpur he met Secret Service Agent Penni DePaul. They had an immediately chemistry which surprised Dan but whe [...]

      What a fast paced and engaging novel! Walker combines suspense with subversion and plotting to create a remarkable and unmistakable BKI novel. Backed up by chemistry and characters you really get up close and personal with this story is one to remember. The lingo dialogue really makes these characters. It’s so easy to see and hear them. Dan’s confusion over feelings, beliefs, and events become apparent, taking his larger than life personal and making him real, human. The dichotomy between su [...]

    7. Suzi (Obsessive Reading Disorder) on said:

      Another fast paced and suspense filled story in the Black Knights world. We already know these characters from previous stories. This one finds Penni looking for Dan. They had a one night stand that neither could forget. But life and missions got in the way. Now, Penni is determined to get Dan back. Lots of familiar action happening in the book. I would like to see a bit more creativity and less predictability. That said, Penni and Dan are interesting characters. We also catch up with the rest o [...]

      My Review:This is another one of those series that I've liked from the very beginning, but I really, really liked this installment. We got to see Penni and Dan in the last book and I LOVED them together. Dan needs a happy badly, so I loved when it looked like they were going to hook up. But when this book begins, things haven't gone like I expected them to in the three months between the events in the last book and this oned I liked that bit of surprise. I think the biggest surprise is that Penn [...]

    9. Darcy on said:

      It seems like we have been waiting for this book ever since Dan lost it all in an early book. It was hard to see him implode after his wife died. I liked that Dan didn't stay lost, but started to come back to life. I really liked the connection that Dan and Penni had during the last book. I did wonder why Penni showed up in Chicago determined to see Dan, was surprised that everyone at the Knights sent Penni in Dan's direction. Dan's mission seemed to be outtakes from a Three Stooges show. It did [...]

      Took me a while to get this one read. I had to check it out from the library more than once, and once it was deleted from my readers right out from under my eyes. It was a particularly busy time. But that changed and I finally got to finish it. This is an entertaining story. Lots of spy stuff and shooting. The heroine has just resigned from the Secret Service and is trying to track down the guy she's crazy about, in order to tell him how she feels. He's in Peru, hunting for a bad guy who has pro [...]

      Second chances do exist!!This is the eighth installment of Black Knights, Inc was an incredible read. This story was well written and loved the dialogue. These characters made me smile, laugh and so much more. I know that I haven’t finished reading all of this series book but what I have read I love them. Ms. Walker gave me as a reader a great plot, suspense, chemistry and other characters that I can’t wait to read more about. Dan “The Man” Currington is a man that lost his soul mate and [...]

      A second chance at happiness for Dan, the knight who lost his wife a few years back at an attack on the Knights' compound, and former Secret Service Agent Penni DePaul, whom he'd met in a previous mission.The two had a connection then, but the timing didn't feel right for a relationship. Things are different now and Penni, who is trying to get in touch with Dan, (view spoiler)[since she has some pretty big news to share, in the form of a bun in the oven (hide spoiler)], follows him to his curren [...]

    17. The BookWhisperer on said:

      I loved the little snippets that we got from the last book “Full Throttle” that involved Dan and Penni and that started to show the slow build of their, (well, the best that we could call it at that moment would be) relationship. Just starting to get to know each other, Dan and Penni ran into some rough times, and some lusty times, but ultimately parted without saying much to each other. This book picks up a few months after they last saw each other. Dan hasn’t stopped thinking about her a [...]

      4.5 stars!Secret government operations twine with one sexy as hell relationship in this action packed story! I loved the fast-paced plot and slow burning romance, both of which held me to the pages and the edge of my seat. I can’t get enough of stories where the bullets fly just as much as the whispered words and slick kisses.Dan is a super alpha male with a sweet and vulnerable side. Do I love them any other way? Nope. He’s trying to move on from the tragic loss of his wife and has never qu [...]

      Hotness Rating 3 out of 5I love Julie Ann Walker and the Black Knights Inc. series. Every time I finish one I wait impatiently for the next one to come out. By the time you get to the 8th book of a series many books become rote and stale. This is so not the case with Too Hard to Handle. It seems like I love each book better than the one before. I loved Penni and Dan when they had their all-too brief meeting in the previous book Full Throttle. After all that went down in that book with Penni losi [...]

      Dan is one sexy beefcake, "in case I gave you the wrong impression earlier…” he growled. Mr. Growly Growlerton. “I want you to know how damn good it is to see you again." Sometimes Penni has to get creative on things after all Dan is a stubborn boy, "she tugged his head down and said softly in his ear, “Despite the impression I may’ve given you downstairs at dinner, you are my favorite toy." There are times Dan is more of a show than tell kind of guy, "God, Penni,” he murmured, his f [...]

So off to his current assignment in Peru, but she didn´t expect to arrive just as things are about to go down. Dan hasn´t been able to forget his Secret Service agent, but he didn´t think she´d turn up here. Once she´s part of the mission she does hold her own, though. But with his tragic baggage and her secrets, can they make a go of it and trust each other?Contemporary romance [...]

      Ava's review posted at Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews4.5 starsExcellent addition to the BKI series. I truly enjoyed Penni and Dan. Their adventures were heart pounding, edge of your seat suspense like Jason Borne or Mission Impossible. Out of the frying pan and into the fire all the time! I love Julie's writing and her ability to pepper passion into suspense so masterfully. I sometimes struggle with heroine's needing to be rescued in romantic suspense books, but thankfully Ms. Walker hit the mark [...]

    23. Pboswell on said:

      I expected so much more from Dan and Penni much more! There are so many layers that each of them need to peel back. So much they needed to discuss and fight together. And with their impending futures bound to change forever, there should've been more depth to their story. I am not pleased.

Dan's book is very different from Steady's. It's both less intimate and more expansive. I also realized quickly that I needed to have read the previous books to fully understand this one, un [...]

      3 1/2 starsI wanted to really love this book as my heart has broken for Dan, but no matter how much I liked the couple I could not get over that the plot was just too much for me.Penni and Dan have a great spark, but the plot got in the way of their romance. These books are getting so heavy in the suspense that relates back to previous books. It had been a while since I read the previous book so some details where foggy. I would have liked more Dan and Penni time. Alot of time was spent on a fut [...]
