Synopsis

She saw in him what no one else could see. 



He found in her what he could never find.


One moment changed everything but, even with a break in time, their connection could never be severed.

In the beginning he may have been her salvation, but in the end she will be his redemption.

***

This is Book One in the Acts Of Honor series, the spin-off series to Men Of Honor. It’s told in dual POV, has an HEA with no cliffhanger and it can be read as a standalone. However, I highly recommend that you read the Men Of Honor series prior, as characters play recurring roles in both series.

Warning: Due to mature subject matter, such as explicit sexual situations and coarse language, this story is not suitable for anyone under the age of 18.

Gillian's Review

An Act of Redemption by KC Lynn is a pure act of restoration in love, trust and the mighty powerful second chance.

How do you trust again what once destroyed you but made you whole at the same time?

How do you forgive when it's impossible to forget?

How can you love when love isn't nearly the right concept for how you feel about another human being?

How can we give a second chance just that...the chance?

Honour. Passion. Love. Regret. Forgiveness. Trust. Brotherhood. Healing. These are the words that encompass what An Act of Redemption truly represents. The struggle is real, but the love is forever. I just cannot stop thinking about this book.

KC Lynn I have no words to properly use to articulate or to properly convey just how beautifully broken and wonderful Anna and Logan’s story truly is. I have been shattered to smithereens and my soul has been touched so deeply by the words you manage to twist and string together so methodically, turning each one to fit beautifully into your emotionally charged stories. The words you pen are so perfect that I just really can't even.

You my friend are an enigma. Your story lines epic, each and every character always managing to burrow themselves deep into my book whoring heart. You really are the one that ruins me EVERYTIME! After having had the privilege of reading Anna and Logan’s incredible fight I am completely book hungover- I'm talking this book annihilated me leaving me an emotional disaster, needing a support group and a huge bottle of wine along with a new t-shirt as my tears just didn’t stop. Tears of sadness, but most of all tears of joy and relief, its like getting on a crazy roller coaster with you KC, but all I can say is thank you! I fucking loved every single second of it.

Despite feeling like I've been put through the ringer, I sit here and write this review with a huge smile on my face because the fight to get here was an epic journey. A journey of self-discovery, trusting what makes you whole, forgiving but knowing forgetting isn't healing, and finally second chances do come, but realizing you're worth them is the struggle. Watching Logan and Anna journey to these revelations was brilliant, resulting in their restoration as a whole.

Finally a little note to the author;
Oh my KC Lynn!! Woman you will be the death of my poor poor book loving whoring heart. I just can't imagine my life without your characters, their families and best of all their stories and messages. Thank you so much for always giving me the grand master of the mother fucking feels. You are honestly an unstoppable force and an inspiration and the Queen of the feels.

Alissa's Review

“My Anna,” he murmurs. “Tell me, baby, tell me you’re my Anna.” 

“I’m your Anna, “ I whisper, not being able to deny him, especially because it’s the truth. 
The story of Anna and Logan is everything I thought it would be- more actually- yet very different than I expected. KC Lynn’s writing gets better and more beautiful with each passing book. An Act of Redemption is proof of that.

After closing the door behind me I fall back against it and slip to the floor in agony. Hugging my knees to my chest I remember that time four years ago. A time that left the deepest of scars, not only on my heart but my soul. 

Anna has owned a piece of my soul since Fighting Temptation. If you’ve read the Men of Honor series then you know firsthand the overpowering story of what Anna has been through. If you haven’t then- well, SOMETHING IS CLEARLY WRONG WIT YOU!!! (hahahaha, Kidding! Well-kind of ;) ) Its a brilliant series and definitely a must read, but you do not have to have read it at all in order to fully enjoy every bit of An Act of Redemption. 

It’s clear right from the beginning that Anna and Logan share an unbreakable bond. They met young and were each lost or broken in their own way. They are fictional living proof that sometimes all it takes is that one person to heal all the broken you feel within yourself.

“I hold him close and revel in the intimacy of our hearts beating together as one. In the midst of the beautiful silence I realize that, together, we’ve healed my soul.” - Anna 

Not only the love- but the overwhelming friendship that these two characters share is so beautiful it will bring tears to your eyes. I cried more than I will ever admit while reading An Act of Redemption- which is no surprise because KC’s writing is absolutely beautiful (I’ve said that already right? Well clearly it needed to be said again-because its true) and the descriptions she uses are ones that will forever be seared into your heart.

Logan- I think my heart just did a little backflip just writing his name. That boy- or shall I say man?!?! Either one- the boy or the man- had me. I completely fell for every action, every word he spoke. His understanding with Anna, his patience, his need to keep her safe and willingness to give up everything he is just to try to make sure she is able to live the life he dreams of for her. It was all just so emotional.

“I’ll always chase away your demons, baby.” 

“Maybe one day you will let me chase yours away.” 
Something painful flashes in his gaze before his eyes fall closed and he drops his forehead to mine. 
“You do, Anna, just being near you quiets them.” 

When he looked at her- it was almost as I felt it. When he spoke to her- I got goosebumps from the passion of his words. Logan’s life was a jumbled mess and I broke for all the torment he had to live through. But seeing him heal and literally feeling the unspeakable peace that Anna brought him is something I rarely find in a book and will never forget. When an author is able to actually make you feel what a character would be feeling at a specific moment with just a few words on a page- is something special and that you don’t find too often. But that is exactly what KC does. She is my go to feel good author that I can always count on for quality, emotion and hilarity.

The base of this storyline is phenomenal. Its quality. It’s a fast paced storyline with a slow building drama. Its full on right from the start- you don’t have that feeling like ‘ok its finally getting good…’. Right from the start you are hit with everything Anna and Logan and it will suck you in and you won’t want to stop reading. My only regret was not taking little mini breaks to savor it piece by piece. 

If you’ve read the Men of Honor series then you are going to love getting more of all the guys and their families in An Act of Redemption. You will also meet a couple of new characters- my favorite being Sarge. Its amazing how one sideline character can really make you think of how you look at the world. 

KC Lynn is a must read author for me- I kinda love her as you may be able to tell. But whether you have read her or not- give this release a shot. You’re sure to become a lifelong fan like me.

Synopsis
Emily Michaels ~ Have you ever felt like you didn’t belong? Like you never fit in, or you weren’t good enough? This is how I have felt for as long as I can remember. I see the world differently than everyone else, I feel everything differently and I reflect on life differently. And being different in my world is not a good thing. I live in a place that’s divided between the rich and the poor, the beautiful and the unbeautiful, the prestigious and the mediocre. I have always belonged in the first category, because my father was the Governor of Georgia.

Growing up around people I could never relate with, my life had always been lonely, that was until my senior year when I met the one boy who would change my life forever. A boy who my parents would never approve of because he didn’t come from money or the same social class. He rode a motorcycle, had tattoos and was considered to be from the wrong side of the tracks. Yet he was still envied by many.

Ryder Jameson was someone who every guy feared, and one who every girl wanted to be touched by. He didn’t do attachments, or have friends… until me. And for the first time in my life I finally felt like I belonged. When I was with him, my different didn’t feel wrong or ugly. He made me feel beautiful- insightfully beautiful. Then one day my world came crashing down on me, and it would be six years before I'd once again see the boy I fell in love with.


Ryder Jameson ~ After working my ass off I am given the opportunity of a lifetime, and if I pull it off I will be the youngest FBI agent to run one of the biggest undercover operations in history. Only the case that gets thrown in front of me leads me back to the one place I swore I would never return to, and to the only girl who’s ever mattered to me.

Except Emily Michaels is not the same girl I left behind. She still looks the same, she’s still beautiful inside and out, but there’s one thing that’s very different about her, one very big thing, and it’s something I didn’t think was possible.


Ryder and I come from a world where politics separates us and wealth defines us, but even after all this time we will not let it divide us. Here is our story.

This is a standalone novel with an HEA and is told in dual POV. Due to mature subject mature, such a explicit sexual situations and coarse language, this story is not suitable for anyone under the age of 18.
