Hell for Leather is the newest edition to the Black Knights series. It delivers a fast paced and engaging story that kept me reading from start to finish.
Delilah Fairchild needs help finding her Uncle who has recently gone missing. She knows the only people that can help her are the men (and women) behind Black Knights Inc. She has gotten to know them over the years as they are patrons of her bar and now that she knows what BKI really is, she knows that if anyone can help her it’s them. BKI sends Brian “Mac” McMillan into help. As Delilah and Mac search for her Uncle trouble finds them.
Hell for Leather brought together to people that I was waiting for but I just didn’t see the sparks that I thought I was going to (maybe I expected too much). In all the previous stories the attraction between Delilah and Mac was always there simmering at the surface. And now they have finally gotten their story but it they just didn’t do it for me.
I have always liked Delilah’s character in previous stories. She is a brassy, bold woman that goes after what she wants and she wants Mac. Now that they are spending a significant amount of time together she finally goes after him full throttle. While Mac is interested in her he keeps pushing her away because he doesn’t want to be hurt by a woman.
Cry me a river Mac! Mac just didn’t do it for me in this story. While he is an ex-FBI agent and a member of BKI he came across luke-warm to me in this story. There was just something missing with his character. I think it was the reason why he pushed Delilah away. When the reason for this was revealed, I couldn’t believe it. I really wanted to smack him for being a stupid male. Come on, you’re an Ex-FBI agent and member of a secret organization and you are afraid of a relationship. Grow a pair Mac! But like all good stories Mac comes to his senses (towards the end) and realizes that loosing Delilah would be the stupidest thing he has ever done.
Hell for Leather has its trademark humor and wit that the Black Knights are known for (love ozzie). Some of the members from previous books are the in this tory and its great catching up with them. The story is well written and fast paced. There was a lot of intrigue in regards to Delilah’s uncle and I really enjoyed it.
From the Author:
Only the most urgent crisis could force Delilah Fairchild to abandon her beloved biker bar and ask the surly Bryan “Mac” McMillan for help. Her uncle—the man who raised her—has vanished into thin air, and Mac is the only person with the right connections to help her find him. What the ex-FBI agent has against her is a mystery…but when the bullets start to fly, Mac is her only chance of finding her uncle alive.
Mac knows that beautiful women can’t be trusted, but he has to put his natural wariness of Delilah aside in order to help her. With the clock ticking, Mac and Delilah find themselves holding on to each other in the wildest adventure of their lives.
