Book Review: Black Tie (Black's Bandits - Book 2): HOT Heroes for Hire: Mercenaries by Lynn Raye Harris


Abducted while on a business trip to Europe, Tallie Grant quickly realizes she’s a commodity to be sold—and there’s no way out. Determined not to surrender to the man who buys her, she’ll soon discover he’s not what he seems. 

Mercenary Brett Wheeler has one task: infiltrate a human trafficking operation and get as much information as possible. But when Tallie takes her turn on the auction block, Brett risks his cover to free her—by bidding to win. 

Someone watches from the shadows, determined to reclaim his thwarted prize. And when he does, Brett will need all his skills to find sweet Tallie again—before she’s gone forever.


Black's Bandits is becoming my favorite Lynn Raye Harris series and definitely a one-click series.  These guys all come from mixed and troubled pasts and the mystery of Ian Black continues to intrigue.  

Lynn does "pulled from the headlines" stories very well and this story about sex-trafficking is no different.  Tallie's story is told in a way that feels like it could really happen to anyone.  Brett's reasoning for saving Tallie and his passion for fighting the cause makes him one of the more swoon-worthy heroes I've read in a long time.  I highly recommend to anyone who loves a good romance and this could be read as a stand-alone this early in the series, however, I would recommend reading pretty much the entire HOT series when you are done to get caught up and get to know the Bandits better from other perspectives.
