US Marshal Jaeger Tripp is assigned to the Federal Witness Protection Program. The hurt and destruction he’s seen—along with protecting criminals who are only cooperating with the authorities to keep themselves out of jail—have left him with a bleak and jaded view of both life and people. His current assignment is Wren O’Riley, a computer wizard who witnessed a high-profile cartel hit.
To Jaeger, Wren is the same as any other job. He must protect him long enough to get him to testify at trial, and his personal feelings have no place in his work and must be set aside. But that’s easier said than done. On the run and fighting for their lives, Jaeger and Wren can’t help but grow closer. And Jaeger can’t help seeing beyond Wren’s nerdy exterior to a man who might be just what Jaeger needs to settle his soul and capture his heart—if they survive long enough to get that chance.

|This is my first Black Knight book. As you can see it's book 4 in the "series" but it's a different set of MCs and therefore can be read as a SA. I wasn't confused in the least while jumping in at the end here.|
I gotta say, I really like the concept of this book. I said to my co-blogger "It reminds me of that religion where they have to keep coming back until they get it right". Also, does the wizard really have a black heart or is he just a genius?
Jaeger is kind of a dick in the beginning. He loathes those that break the law and are greedy. Like his charge,Wren (or so he thinks). He must protect him until Wren can testify against his uncle who is one of the major crime Lord's in Mexico. Little does Jaeger know, that Wren is his one true soulmate and key to getting out of his curse.
Wren is super sweet. You can't but feel bad for the guy and the situation he witnessed and gone through. Betrayed by the one he thought he loved, he has to put all his faith in Jaeger to get him to his court date.
The heat build up between the 2 is barely palpable. Jaeger is hanging on by a thin thread. When it snaps, it snaps. These two are scorching together. Which also changes Jaeger's entire attitude. He loses some of that "dickness" attitude he had in the beginning.
What kind of book would it be if there weren't snags in their plans though? Only, it's not what you think it is.
*insert plot twist*
When Jaeger comes to, a long time has passed. He finds himself alone in a strange place. Luckily he's a born hunter and must go in search for what he wants most.
The ending is sweet, maybe in the side of cheesy, but a lovely HEA none-the-less. Which is all right, seeing that all his other lives weren't so great ending. *rinse, repeat*
I give this book a 3.75*
Evelise Archer is a wife, mother, and grandmother. She is a new-found lover of tea, and don’t look in her office because what you find may astound you. She currently has twenty tins of tealeaves just waiting to be brewed for her drinking pleasure. She is bilingual, lives in one of the original thirteen colonies, and is a lover of the cold weather and snow. It’s a safe bet that you may find her on the beach in the autumn and winter, but rarely in the summer. She’s been married for over thirty years to a loving man who puts up with her obsession to clean—she currently owns three vacuum cleaners—, read, and spin a tale when the voices speak to her. When she’s not in front of the computer, search her out in the local gym.
