4/5 Review: Too Hard to Handle by Julie Anne Walker




"The Man" is back
Dan "The Man" Currington is back in fighting form with a mission that takes him four thousand miles south of BKI headquarters, high in the Andes Mountains of Peru. He's hot on the trail of a rogue CIA agent selling classified government secrets to the highest bidder, when Penni DePaul arrives on the scene. Suddenly the stakes are higher, and keeping Penni safe becomes Dan's number one priority.

And this time she's ready
A lot has changed since former Secret Service Agent Penni DePaul last saw Dan. Now a civilian, she's excited about what the future might hold. But before she can grab onto that future with both hands, she has to tie up some loose ends-namely, Dan Currington, the man she just can't forget. And a secret that's going to change both their lives-if they can stay alive, that is.


**********
 
Too Hard to Handle is an amazing book written by an incredible author, Julie Anne Walker.  This is the 8th book in the series but my first time reading the Black Knight.  This book had me enthralled.  I need to go back and read the other 7. 
The Black Knights are a Secret Agency that goes on missions assigned to them by the president.  In this story, Dan Currington and Dagan Zoelner, two members of the Black Knight’s, are in Cusco Peru on a mission with one of the CIA’s special agents, Chelsea Duvall.  Their mission is to apprehend Winterfield, an ex CIA agent who has stolen data from the government. 
Penni DePaul is an ex Special agent having turned in her badge soon after a traumatizing mission.  She and Dan have a past that she cannot give up on.  Determined to speak with him she travels to Peru where she gets caught up in the mission.  Giving in to their mutual connection will working a mission is not a good idea but neither can help it. 
Catching a traitor, fighting for their lives, and finding out where there is hope for a future together are just the start of the things they need to face in this book.  I can honestly say that I would recommend this book to everyone who loves romance and suspense.  Another great aspect is that you see a connection between Chelsea and Dagan.  Oh I can’t wait for their story.  Happy reading.
