Full Throttle (Black Knights Inc., #7)She Needs a Hero... 

Abby Thompson didn’t sign up to be the daughter of the President of the United States. The position was forced on her by the small matter of her birth. Preferring a quiet life of study, she’s content to leave the politics and the international intrigue to her father. Unfortunately, the most powerful man on the planet is sure to make enemies. When a group of armed thugs takes her hostage half a world away, demanding the U.S. government release prisoners in exchange for her safe return, she fears her father’s policy of “not negotiating with terrorists” means she’ll never see the shores of the Potomac again. Luckily, there’s one glimmer of hope. His name is Carlos Soto. And though she abruptly ended things with him years ago, she knows now he’s the only man who can save her…

Black Knights, Inc. to the Rescue... 

Carlos “Steady” Soto has taken part in his fair share of dangerous missions working at the covert government defense firm of Black Knights Inc. But nothing prepared him for the emotional rollercoaster he faces when he’s tasked with rescuing the only woman he ever loved—who also broke his heart. Racing against time and outmaneuvering a group of trained terrorists will take everything he’s got. Plus there’s the heat simmering between them which is threatening to ignite into an inferno. While ruthless enemies stalk them, they must learn to trust each other again. Even if they do make it out alive, will Abby turn her back on him…for the second time?

MY REVIEW:
     What’s a guy to do when he falls in love with the future president of the United States daughter?  Especially, if he has been told by his own twin he could never measure up.  Being that he comes from a Puerto Rican immigrant’s, who worked in a bar and he’s just him a medical student.  Forget the minor details of both he and Rosa his twin a crazy smart pre-med and that the future president’s daughter, Abby Thompson, has a mad crush on Carlos Soto.
     Rosa was to be Abby’s pre-med advisor during her college stay.  Which seemed to be working out great.  Carlos somehow always seemed to pop up around her or them at any given time.  Which Abby, never minded.  Rosa did because she knew from day one that even though Carlos kept telling himself and Abby that he was too old for her or anyone her age, 19, he still was crushing on her too.  They both had this fun bantering fun that Rosa never understood.
     This morning was no acceptation.  Abby was due to meet Rosa at the coffee shop, when she was walking along campus of course the secret service detail in toe, she runs into Carlos.  He calls out to her she trips over her own two feet like she always does around him.  When the next thing she knows she’s falling into an oncoming car.  She closes her eyes for impact and she feels a yank on her wrist and the next thing she knows she’s being held in the arms of the man she dreams of nightly.  Once she’s calm he releases her, she thanks him, and she continues on with him in toe.
     He asks where she’s going and she says to meet Rosa.  He’s perplexed because Rosa tells him everything and she didn’t tell him this.  They do their bantering thing as they walk getting closer to the coffee shop.  She’s running late and she feels bad but glad to have the time with Carlos.  When all of a sudden there’s an explosion and she is knocked to the ground.  Her ears are ringing she can’t see there is something heavy on her she can’t move.  Her detail is yelling, “Stay down Abby!”  She yells, “What’s going on?”  Then she hears, “Soto stay down!”  Then she is riddled with fear.
     This is a fun and exciting story.  I didn’t know really what to expect.  Well, maybe I did I was expecting cheesy but not what I got.  There is the secondary story line of her detail that goes on too that is so good also.  Only wish more would have come of Dan and Penni at the end.  A really good book I give it 5 stars.  Provided by Net Galley.
