Thrill Ride is exactly as the name reads…one heck of a Thrill Ride! The story picks up where Rev It Up ends. No time to catch your breath. So hang on tight as we try to live up to the story and keep you engaged for the review!
Ex-Navy SEAL Rock Babineaux has two jobs and a very heavily guarded past. Trained in interrogation he is the best, but with each interrogation, a piece of his soul seems to become lost. With a side mission in the works, the entire thing starts to blow up when his marks start showing up dead. Labeled a rogue, on the run from the government and even the Black Knights. But one feisty woman won’t let him escape that easily both from the team that can help him and the attraction she knows both of them feel.
Vanessa Cordova recently joined the Black Knights as a communications specialist. This probably was my most confused issue of the story. I just didn’t feel Vanessa fit in with the team. Not that she wasn’t a wonderful woman, just she didn’t seem to fit the role the team assumes in an agent. She does fit in personality wise, she is also a great communications specialist, but you never really feel she has any real time in the trenches. Suddenly she is dressed up as a boy following Rock into a jungle, which was confusing, not knowing what she really is capable of.
The Knights are convinced Rock isn’t guilty, but slivers of unrest seem to be there for a few. In the end, no matter what they think, they are there to protect and stand by Rock. The action scenes were a little hokey, but in a way they were still really fun to read.
It was exciting to see some past characters get in on the action. Comedy is also not left behind, imagine vibrators taped to windows. We also get to meet the next love story, which we have seen in a past book as well.
Packed with action, suspense, love and sweaty times between the sheets, Thrill Ride delivers the awesome experience that lets your forget your own life for a while and immerse yourself in a world where you can enjoy the ride.
