My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Hell for Leather is almost like a full circle book in that Bryan “Mac” McMillian was the grumpy FBI agent we’d met many books ago but really knew nothing about even when he became ex-FBI and joined BKI plus there is a huge life event that happens for Nate (Ghost) and Ali who were the two that started this series.
Mac and Delilah, who owns the bar where the BKI men frequent, have been doing the dance for few books. She likes him but he avoids her like the plague. But when her uncle goes missing he waste no time stepping in to bring the team together to help her find him. Dagan Zoelner who is ex-CIA and newest member of BKI also plays a big part in this book and we get some of his history of some bad things that went down in Afghanistan and also the introduction to who I am sure will be his lady in his book – CIA agent Chelsea who ends up also helping the BKI team as terrorist and secrets from back in the Vietnam days are what is at the crux of why Delilah uncle is missing.
Being the sixth book in the series you’ve come to love all the past characters and when this group of guys is together their bickering and humor are some of the best scenes in the books. No exception in this one. Ozzie gets to tag along on this mission and as usual his lines are some of the funniest in the book.
All these alpha men that end up working for BKI have tons of baggage from their past they cart around until they meet their woman who makes them deal with those demons and finally put them to rest. When we finally find out why Mac doesn’t want to get involved with Delilah towards the end of the book, I absolutely loved how she confronted him about it and what she called it. Cant say what it is cause it would be a spoiler but for big bad Mac to have this particular issue was to funny.
