Rebel with a CauseWhy I Read this Book: There was so much sexual tension between Becky and Frank in Hell on Wheels (my review) and I couldn’t wait for their story. I was so glad it was in the very next book.
Becky "Rebel" Reichert never actually goes looking for trouble. It just has a tendency to find her. Like the day Frank Knight showed up at her door, wanting to use her motorcycle shop as a cover for his elite special ops team. But Becky prides herself on being able to hang with the big boys-she can weld, drive, and shoot just as well as any of them.
Man with a Mission
Munitions, missiles, and mayhem are Frank's way of life. The last thing the ex-SEAL wants is for one brash blonde to come within fifty feet of anything that goes boom. Yet it's just his rotten luck when she ends up in a hostage situation at sea. Come hell or high water, he will get her back-whether she says she needs him or not.
What I Liked: We get the backstory of how Becky’s custom bike shop became the façade for Black Knights, Inc. I was looking for this little snippet of information in the first book in this series but it wasn’t there.
I love Becky. I loved her in the first book and I loved her even more in this book. The best way to describe her is bold. She wants Frank and has no problem letting him know that she wants him. He’s not keen on being romantically involved with her because (1) they work together and (2) he’s not digging the May-December age difference between them.
Oh Billy. What got between you and Eve, huh? I’m dying to find out and I would love to see their flame rekindled. I’m not picky either - I don’t need an entire book dedicated to them; give it to me as a secondary story arc. Just give me their story.
Dagan makes a reappearance. I’m really interested to see what’s in store for his character. I have to believe that the author included him in this novel for a reason. I just wonder what that reason is….
And why do I have the feeling we haven’t heard the last of Samantha Tate?
What I Didn’t Like: The kidnapping scene. It was way too convenient for Becky. Girl seemed to be channeling her inner Gumby with some of the moves she was pulling.
I didn’t like being strung along with Becky in regards to the mystery woman in Lincoln Park. I don’t want to give anything way so I’ll just say that what the author makes the reader believe, made me uncomfortable. Once things were cleared up, I was fine and was able to cheer Becky on but that didn’t happen until the end of the book.
“…that didn’t mean they weren't currently giving each other the ol’ slap and tickle.”
“That’s because things are different between us, you big, stupid dill-hole!”
Overall Impression: I enjoyed Hell on Wheels but I liked In Rides Trouble even more. This series gets better with each book and I can’t wait to read Rev It Up. I’m anxious to find out Michelle’s story with Snake. I only hope that the series doesn’t end there.
