Rev It Up (Black Knights Inc. #3) by Julie Ann Walker

The Black Knights are a group of extremely talented mostly ex-military special ops working out of a custom motorcycle shop in Chicago doing the mission impossible kind of stuff the government doesn’t want to talk about.
In In Rides Trouble (Black Knights Inc. #2) we learned that Frank “Boss” Knight had a sister Michelle and she has a kid.  In Hell on Wheels (Black Knights Inc. #1) the Black Knights pissed off a mobster and now there is a price on their heads which puts Michelle and her son in the line of fire.
 Jake “the Snake” Sommers worked with Frank in the military and met and fell for Michelle.  But when things go wrong overseas and mess with his head he pushes her away till he can get his head on straight.  Michelle coming from the same dysfunctional background as Frank takes this to be another sign that men are unreliable asshats. 
Jake has returned to make things right with Michelle and walks right into a war-zone.  Michelle wants nothing to do with him and someone is out to get her.  Frank plays enabler by asking Jake to guard Michelle and her son.  Some flames never die.
If it weren’t for miscommunication as a plot device I don’t think there would be half the number of romance novels out there.  It works.  What I like best about this series so far, besides the hunky guys, is Ms. Walkers quirky sense of humor and that the women aren’t shrinking violets. 

I’d like to thank NetGalley and Sourcebooks books for allowing me to read this in exchange for a fair and honest review.
