Review: Full Throttle by Julie Ann Walker




Steady Hands, Cool Head...

Carlos "Steady" Soto's nerves of steel have served him well at the covert government defense firm Black Knights Inc. But nothing has prepared him for the emotional roller coaster of guarding the woman he once loved and lost.

Will All He's Got Be Enough?

Abby Thomson is content to leave politics and international intrigue to her father-the President of the United States-until she's taken hostage half a world away, and she fears her father's policy of not negotiating with terrorists will be her death sentence. There's one glimmer of hope: the man whose heart she broke, but she can ever tell him why...

As they race through the jungle in a bid for safety, the heat simmering between Steady and Abby could be a second chance for them-if they make it out alive.



Julie Ann Walker really knows how to pack in the action and her latest book also packs in the heat! I loved the main couple in this story and although they both seemed larger than life they were also so very realistic as if you would have no problem becoming friends with either of them. They both have strong personalities and they balance one another which made for interesting scenarios for the reader. I enjoyed how the story is told through various sets of eyes, giving me so many points of views. There were also a few characters introduced that I'm keeping my fingers crossed will make a reappearance in some future works. This was a page turning, rollercoaster ride full of passion and conflict, combat and commitment. If Alpha male heroes and smart, sweet heroines make you happy when they are evading enemies, dodging bullets, thwarting terrorists and igniting fires.
