Synopsis


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.






Excerpt

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.

A decision.

A choice.

No more fighting this.

“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.

                What we did have.

                “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.”

MY REVIEW:

This book literally stole my breath and had me in tears half the time. This book took my heart in its grasp and just rang it thru the ringer but that’s ok, because I love those types of books and K.C. Lynn did an outstanding job with “An Act of Courage” It’s all about 2nd chances.
We first meet the broken but handsome Christopher in Resisting Temptation when he was 15 years old. Now this is his book where we meet him when he is all grown up. He went thru so much when he was younger which has made him jaded and he is still pretty broken on the inside. We see him going thru a lot now as an adult and I just wanted to hug him and tell him all would be ok…there were so many times that he needed that told to him because things seemed bleak. Keep tissues handy because I found myself needing them a lot. So just to give alittle background , Christopher had a rough upbringing along with his sister Ruthie until they were taken in by Faith.
Alissa had a normal homelife except her mom was one meddler who couldn’t stand that her daughter was happy. Chris and Alissa were HS Sweethearts and were so in love. We get flashbacks of how things were between them in HS and the sweetness of that time between them, then we get flashbacks of after they graduate high school and her mom getting in between them, causing some stuff and BOOM, they aren’t together and end up separated.
Fast forward several years later— Christopher has followed in his stepfather, Cade's footsteps and went to the Navy while Alissa went to nursing school. Something tragic brings these two back together. Alissa is the sweetest woman ever, kind and beautiful. She never stopped loving Christopher. When she sees Christopher again, she can tell he is hurting so bad and in such pain, she reaches out and wants to help him find peace. I cannot tell you the amount of times I cried , like full on sobbing. This is a deeply emotional book and full of pain yet there is hope and there is deep love that still exists between the MC- Christopher and Alissa.
This is a story about 2nd chances, about pain and about deep, unwavering true love. There is pain but there are scenes where you will laugh because of the humor and there is some heat, awesome hot erotic heat in the book. It is a roller coaster of a ride but that is one awesome way to go when reading a book and I loved each and every word and emotion that I felt.

My rating: 4.8 stars ****
