About the Author
 Potentially a fragment of a larger thought collective, or just a weirdo who likes making stuff up, Andrea Speed hopes you enjoy weird nonsense, because that's pretty much all she's capable of. Small and ridiculous.

Violence has been Lochlann O’Connor’s companion since he was born into a family of old-school Irish terrorists. From there he is recruited into Alpha, a secret government agency dedicated to fighting terrorism—with extreme prejudice. Lochlann’s bravery, efficiency, ruthlessness, and the natural dead eye that lets him hit anything that moves, quickly make him one of the shadowy organization’s most valued operatives.

Cas Vega joins Alpha because it’s marginally better than a prison sentence. He’s a former drug cartel assassin—or at least that’s his story. But Lochlann is suspicious. Despite an irrational and overwhelming attraction to Cas, Lochlann has questions, and they soon lead to a deeper and deadlier mystery. What is Alpha’s true purpose, and why does it seem they want to eliminate Lochlann?

Lochlann and Cas must work together to get to the bottom of Alpha’s scheme and escape it—and all while Cas keeps secrets that could cost him his life if they’re revealed. But it’s not an alliance that can last. Duty turns the men into enemies, even while fate compels them into each other’s arms. Before they can contemplate which will prevail, they must figure out how to survive.

Independent reviewer for Divine Magazine, I was gifted my copy of this book. 

This book?? This book here is a prime example of why I LOVE this series. 

TOTALLY. FREAKING. AWESOME.

Lochlann was recruited to Alpha after the death of his brother and father. Cas infiltrated Alpha to try to get information to bring it down. 

This is book 6 in The Order of The Black Knights, but you don't NEED to have read the other five. But hear when I say you SHOULD read them. All written by different authors, in their own style and manner, but they all follow a theme, that of a meet, love, kill, rinse and repeat until they meet the one enemy that will be spared.  And they are all 4 and 5 star reads. SO, read the damn books already. 

This is, for me, a far far bloodier read. Quite literally. Being members of Alpha is like a Black Ops team, on steriods. In, kill, and out. And there is a lot of killing here. And it is gloriously written! 

I loved Inga. SO she was deadly, but totally scary and messed up. She left me with lots of questions about her. Loved the reasons all the other team members were with Alpha too. You don't get much, just enough to be able to connect, but then again, you don't need them all to have a say, because Lochlann and Cas have a lot to say on their own. 

It takes time for things at Alpha to come to a head, and I wasn't sure which way things were going to go, til right til the very end, and I do so LOVE being kept on my toes.

BUT!!

What made this for me, what made it stand out from the other five books, is that it is almost CLEAN. Like NO sex at all. Sorry, there is sex, its just not described in any way. Its all left to the reader to fill in the blanks. And I absolutely LOVED it. Go figure! Me, who will say she much prefers her books on the sexier side, hell I'll even read porn, I don't care. BUT know this. For Lochlann and Cas, it's freaking perfect. I think that is Andrea Speed and her way of writing. But brilliant here. 

OH! 

And this cover. I don't usually take much notice of a books cover, but this one?? It fits Lochlann, perfectly. Stunning side view. Love it!

There is a book 7 listed on Goodreads, but I have insider information that there will be more. I am so loving the way each author presents these books. Its giving me a whole host of new reading matter too! 

I didn't quite manage to read it in one sitting, but I tried so bloody hard to. Work got in the way!

Still, a stunning...

5 stars
