A New York Times and USA Today Bestseller!

"A first-rate thrill ride."—Publishers Weekly, Starred Review


Ex-navy SEAL Rock Babineaux is as Cajun as they come—spicy, sexy, and more than a bit wicked. But would he actually betray his country? Even his best friends on the special-ops Black Knights team aren't sure they can trust him. Now the target of a massive manhunt, Rock knows the only way to protect the team—especially his partner, Vanessa—is to run...


Rock might think he can outmaneuver them all, but he hasn't counted on how stubborn Vanessa Cordero can be. And she refuses to cut him loose. Sure, her partner has his secrets, but there's no one in the world she'd rather have by her side in a tight spot. Which is good because she and Rock are about to get very tight...

Once again the Black Knights take centre stage with danger, action, and all the heat one girl can handle. Walker’s fast paced narrative had me caught up in the intensity of the story, keeping me on my toes, trying to guess what would happen next. The uniqueness of the plot was fantastic, taking me on a completely unexpected journey. These characters definitely live hard and love harder. I love how couples from the previous novel(s) in the series walk their way into this novel. It gives a sense of continuity to the series as a whole, while giving me extra investment in each individual novel. Rock & Vanessa definitely made an intriguing couple in this novel. The differences in their personalities and personal histories served to highlight just how much they really did have in common. I loved the surprise twists in Vanessa & Rock’s relationship. The dynamics between them were never simple, and never turned out quite how I expected them to, but always worked for the characters. Thrill Ride is definitely a welcome addition to the BKI series. I loved getting to know the characters a little better, while finding out even more about who the Black Knights are and what they do. I’d definitely recommend this novel to those who enjoy a fast paced, suspenseful romance with larger than life characters.

Laughed so hard picturing Eve and Becky taping vibrators on the windows. Cried for Dunn. Fast-paced Action, humor, loyalty of family &country, romance, this book runs through them all. Worth a second read.
