Wyatt Blackstone's star rose rapidly in the FBI and descended just as fast when his personal moral code made him expose something that made him unpopular among his fellow agents. Wyatt is now the Special Agent in Charge of a new unit the FBI is trying to sweep under the rug. However, Wyatt has good people on his team and they show just how good they are, until the night one of his agents is killed during a surveillance case with another team.
Lily Fletcher is a computer wizard who became fixated on a criminal. That fixation turned into her own personal nightmare. When Lily could finally contact Wyatt to let him know she was alive and in desperate need of rescuing, she made a decision that affected the entire team. Now it appears that someone has guessed Lily might still be alive and is trying to force her hand.
Wyatt and Lily have to start at the beginning to figure out just who hid behind a screen name months ago. While that would be enough to keep both of them busy, it appears the FBI might be asking questions too, and don't forget about the team themselves, all of which brings a ton of action. Action that could have been used as a front for murder. When the final battle happens, can Wyatt protect Lily and his team while bagging a murderer? And what about Wyatt and Lily's future together, and with the FBI?
What would you do if a call made you choose between the career rulebook and your moral one? In Black at Heart the Special Agent in Charge of the Black CAT's must make this decision. Wyatt knows that his own moral code has come at odds with the FBI before and without hesitation, he puts a member of his team ahead of it again. Lily let her emotions blind her and she went semi around her boss in order to capture an obsession. I was so upset when I learned that Lily had died in book two and beyond happy when she was suddenly back in Wyatt's life. I had seen that Wyatt and Lily were heading together in baby steps. I loved how Ms. Parrish tied up loose threads and filled in the blanks in both Wyatt's and Lily's lives. How Wyatt and Lily worked together to solve who was trying to kill a supposedly dead person, kept me up reading until the book was done. The loyalty of the entire team seemed to be the cherry on top as Wyatt and Lily struggled to come to terms with the people they were now, and the passion between them that could not be denied any longer. Outstanding ending to the initial three books in this great new series.
I just have to Joyfully Recommend Black at Heart and in fact, I recommend the entire Black CAT's series so far. I really hope that more books in this series show up soon, as I can just see Wyatt daring the FBI to close down his team, and the team showing up other agents by solving intricate internet crimes.
