TBR Link: Goodreads
She’s the light from his past.
He’s the one her heart has always longed for.
Trained by the best, Christopher Walker has fought hard for his country and even harder to forget the only girl he’s ever loved. He spent countless nights submerged in death and destruction only to find himself clinging to the memories of her when the darkness crept in.
When her life is threatened, Christopher will stop at nothing to protect her. Even if it means having to confront his past.
Alissa Malone never thought she would find herself face-to-face again with the only boy she’s ever loved. But she soon realizes Christopher is not the same man he once was.
His touch is still electrifying—his voice still earth shattering. But there’s a darkness about him that wasn’t there before. A pain he harbors so deep that she can feel it all the way to her soul.
One fateful moment destroyed his very existence, and only one person will be able to make him realize that what he considers an act of dishonor was truly an act of courage.
This is Book Four in the Acts Of Honor series, the spin-off series to Men Of Honor. It is not necessary to read all of the other books in the series. However, I do highly recommend that you at least read Resisting Temptation, the third book in the Men of Honor series, since this is where these Characters story began.
One minute I’m drumming to a beat I could never play on my own then the next I’m flipped around to face him, his fingers digging into my hips possessively. I gasp, my breath racing as I stare back at him.
Something passes between us.
“Fuck complicated.” His earlier words fall past his lips then our mouths become one.
The connection slams into me, sending my heart reeling. Our tongues duel in a beautiful battle, the sound of our passion filling the air as our past ignites.
A growl erupts from him, vibrating against my lips. “You taste as good as I remember.”
I want to tell him the same thing but can’t. All I can think about is his mouth never leaving mine, not even for a second, or it might kill me.
At this moment, I’m not even sure how I survived so long without it—without him.
He slides the stool closer to the drum set before his hand moves between us and presses on my chest. I seize the opportunity to suck in air and let him guide me to my back, my shoulders resting against the musical cylinders.
His hands move to mine and it’s then I realize I still have the drumsticks gripped tightly in my fists. With a sexy smirk, he pries them both from me, throwing one on the floor but keeps hold of the other.
His dark eyes never sever from mine as he unbuttons the shirt I’m wearing, exposing me to his stare. The cool air whispers over my heated flesh, my nipples straining for his touch.
“So fucking pretty.” The wild lust in his eyes triggers an intense desire in me.
I bite my lip to keep from moaning but all silent caution is thrown out the window the moment he takes the stick and brushes the tip of it over one aching bud.
Another gasp parts my lips, a fiery whimper purging from me at the cool, hard feel. My back arches, the small touch igniting an inferno in my body.
“Remember the things I used to do to your body, Alissa? How wet you would get when you’d hear me sing?” he murmurs, dragging the smooth wood down my tummy. “You’d beg me to take your ache away. Remember?”
“Yes. Do you?” I ask. I’m dying to know. Has he thought of me as much as I have him?
“Yeah, baby. There isn’t a moment of our time together that I’ve ever forgotten.”
His admission has my throat burning and heart aching. Aching at the loss of him, of what we could have had.
“The good,” he whispers. “The bad.” He slips the stick in my panties. “And the fucking beautiful.”
“Oh, god, Christopher.” His name spills past my lips on a cry of pleasure as he glides the stick through my wet flesh, slowly working it against my swollen clit.
He plays my body like he plays every instrument. With skilled perfection and grace. Keeping his momentum, he leans down just enough to suck a hard nipple into his mouth. His teeth graze it with a pressure that borders on a beautiful pain and it’s enough to send me over the edge.
Blissful cries rip from my throat as I’m swept up into an intense storm of pleasure.
“Good girl, scream for me, Alissa. Let me have your pleasure because next it’s going to be my cock working this hot little pussy.”
I was an absolute mess while reading this book. The author has a way of drawing you in, making you feel what Cade and Faith are feeling, and it’s both heart wrenching and awesome at the same time.
Cade was a phenomenal hero. He was rough around the edges, and living with his demons seems to have broken him. Faith is his complete opposite. She’s sweet, fun, sexy, and can overcome anything and still see positive in the world. While these 2 stole my heart, I can’t leave out Ruthie and Christopher. They have been through a lot, but with Faith as their guardian, they get all the happiness they deserve, and it was great to see them come out of their shell.
This story had me in 2 emotional states. Blubbering like an absolute fool, and cracking up at the antics between Cade and his buddies, and everything Ruthie.
A phenomenal must read!!!
An Act Of Courage
KC Lynn knows how to draw a reader in and keep them drawn in to the end. The emotions she’s brings out in her books are so great, it will leave you with a major book hangover.
I was so excited to learn we would get a book for Christopher!!!! (We met him as a secondary character in Resisting Temptation, which I would definitely recommend checking out first since it gives you a lot of his background story) He was such a strong hero, but a broken one. It’s hard seeing a hero you love go through what he went through, and finding out exactly what happened?? Make sure you have the tissues ready, because there are no words for it. Alissa is exactly what he needs in his life. She brings him out of his darkness, and helps him find some peace.
I loved catching up with the Men of Honor characters, especially Cade and Faith. They played such an important part in Christopher’s life, and it was awesome seeing the bond never died.
A phenomenal read of love, strength, healing and forgiveness, with the perfect amount of suspense, that I would definitely recommend!!!
