BUILT TO LAST – A Julie Ann Walker Review


I am not ready for my BKI boys to me over! I know I know…these stories live on outside of these books. But no more action packed BKI heroes is a tough ill to swallow. I’ve been reading them from the start and Walker always manages to paint such bad-ass heroes. Good thing she saved the baddest of them all for the finale; Angel Agassi. The Iceman. The man without emotions…or so we thought!

BKI has been hunting the infamous Spider for months and are sure they’ve discovered his true identity when a ghost from Angel’s past haunts the screen beside the Spider. Sonya was an agent Angel dealt with in another life. He fell for her, but in order to stay true to his beliefs in protecting his people, he had to give up everything, including Sonya. Now under the Spider’s roof he has to feign indifference as her very image is right before him and her scent is jut as tempting as it was years before. But he wears a different face now and even the woman of his dreams doesn’t recognize him. Its a tough desire to defeat, but Angel can’t jeopardize this mission and risk the lives of thousands all for a shot at forever with Sonya.

Sonya is intrigued by the Prince of Shadow, aka Angel. After spending days with him she’s reminded of Mark, her past love, in his mannerisms and even some of his tells. But the man she loved is dead and the monster in his place is cold and distant. Until one night and one kiss sparks a memory… Now on the run these two have to decide who to trust and where to turn as lies become truth and secrets come to light. Filled with non-stop action, Walker knocks it out of the park with this finale! Angel has always been stone cold and mysterious and watching Sonya slowly crack his shell an reveal the loving man inside was so perfect!

The sides story of Ace and Rusty was so swoony! I really wanted these two to have their own book. There’s something about argumentative couples that just makes the book a lot more interesting and hilarious. Having Ozzie there to break their sexual tension was hysterical! In the end, a sneak peek into all of the BKI crews live and futures was a beautiful send off to this amazing action romance series from one of by auto-buy authors. I can’t wait to see what the future has in store!


In the epic conclusion to the BKI series, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Julie Ann Walker delivers her biggest bombshell yet!

Welcome to Black Knights Inc.

What appears to be a tricked-out motorcycle shop on the North Side of Chicago is actually headquarters for the world’s most elite covert operatives. Deadly, dangerous, and determined, they’ll steal your breath and your heart.

After a mission-gone-sideways forces Jamin “Angel” Agassi to change his identity, he’s determined to bring down the world’s worst crime syndicate kingpin once and for all. That’s going to be the easy part. Keeping Interpol agent Sonya Butler from discovering who he really is—and blazing another trail into his heart—is the challenge.



Julie.png Born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Julie grew up in a house full of women – she has three older sisters. As you can imagine, there was no lack of drama… or romance. Her mother enrolled her in a book club as soon as she began to read and it was the small spark that ignited her voracious appetite for the written word. Because of Julie’s early immersion in literature, she found writing came quite naturally. In high school, she won multiple writing contests and was the proud senior editor of The Tiger’s Tale – her school newspaper. During her college years, however, she longed for a challenge. “Reading and writing felt like second nature to me, so I looked for a way to flex my mental muscles,” she recalls. After receiving a Bachelor of Science degree, Julie began teaching advanced high school mathematics. “I loved working with the students and facing the challenges of the classroom, but I longed for the occasional snow day when I could race to the local book store, buy two or three new novels, and curl up in front of the fire to read.” It wasn’t until a fortuitous move to Chicago that Julie once more returned to her first passion. “Thankfully, my husband – my own personal hero – encouraged my decision to write full time.” Now Julie lives on beautiful Lake Shore Drive with a view that sometimes competes with her deadlines. When she’s not writing, she enjoys camping, hiking, cycling, cooking, travel, and…reading, of course!
