Review: Hell on Wheels – Julie Ann Walker

Hell on Wheels

He’s the bad boy she’s always wanted…
Nate “Ghost” Weller has loved Ali Morgan nearly half his life. But he’s done something so heinous he’s convinced she’ll never forgive him if she discovers the truth, so he keeps his feelings and his secrets to himself. Then she blows into town with a mother lode of bad guys on her tail and Nate can’t deny she’s in serious trouble. Unfortunately, he’s the only one who can help her.

She’s the good girl he’s kept at arm’s length…
Ali knows Nate as the most solemn, aloof man on the planet. Sadly, he’s also the sexiest. For years she’s avoided him, unable to stomach his dark scowls and brooding silences… especially when she secretly yearns for his touch. Now she must rely on him to save her from the malevolent shadows ghosting her every move. When the bullets explode, so does their passion. But can love really conquer all? Or are some things just too terrible to forgive?
My thoughts:
I have to start this review with a quote, because while reading I kept think The Expendables and that is exactly what the heroine later asks.
“..And yeah, we’re the Expendables. just younger, better looking, with cooler bikes and real bullets.”
Lol, yes that did not go by well, lol.
To the book then, Ali is the sweet kindergarten teacher. And she does want Nate to see her as more than that. She tries her best. While the hero Nate does his best to keep his distance. Sighs, men are such idiots. She likes him, he likes her, he stays away cos of a promise to her brother. All brothers would say that. But hey we need the drama as these two dance around each other and keeps on sending mixed signals.
But this is romantic suspense after all and there sure is that too in it. Someone is after Ali. Why? That is for the Knights to find out and to protect her. Bullets will fly.
There is also a secondary story as we see the tension between another couple and that will lead up to book 2. Which seems to be another good one.
Conclusion:
A thrilling ride with a couple who wants each other so much.

You all know I’d want to see his face too, but still ok

    I think it was Ilona Andrews who said that it is more expensive if the model's face is included in the picture, maybe the art department was on a budget.
