4 Heart Review by Ashley
Not sure how Black Tie is the first book I've read from Lynn Raye Harris because this is everything I like in my romance. Danger and steam, mystery and feelings. From the first page until the last, I was hooked.
I like Tallie. When forced into the worst of circumstances, she didn't lose her resiliency or will to overcome. But it was Brett who was really thrown for a loop when he spotted her. There was something about her that called to him. And he just couldn't let her slip away. Even if it went against his mission.
It was a whirlwind of planning, travel and trying to stay a few steps ahead. All the while there was this attraction that neither Brett or Tallie could deny. The anticipation was bubbling right at the surface and it was only a matter of time before it exploded. And when it did...it left them both breathless. As things started to calm down around them, Brett and Tallie both vow to do what it takes to make things work despite the distance and their hectic schedules.
I really liked the 'team' aspect of this book. How the men and women of BDI (Brett's employer) are like family. Especially since the threat against Tallie that they thought was over actually wasn't. My heart was racing and I was holding my breath to see how it would all play out. But the biggest shock of all was the unexpected ally that stepped in to help Tallie. Hats off too Lynn Raye Harris for sucking me into this world. I will for sure be on the lookout for the rest of this series.
