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.






REVIEW

You know those reviews where the person pretends their not biased and that they don't love the hell outta the author? Yeah this is not gonna be one of those! OMG Every damn time! All the feels!!

Finally we get Christopher!!

If you've read the series i think like me you will have been waiting for this one. This is Christopher from Resisting Temptation.

Christopher gives up the love of his life, Alissa, to join the Navy and to allow her to pursue her dreams. After 5 years apart Christopher is back from War a changed man. He's seen and done things he can't get over. He's ashamed of what he's done and it's weighing heavily on him. He's home a short while when he is asked by Alissa's father for help. This brings them crashing back together as though he never left.

Alissa has lived the past 5 years never forgetting Christopher. Her heart will always belong to him. And whilst she has lived her life she's never found love again.

I am not gonna give any spoilers of the story. But jeeze i will just say it's amazing. Nearly on a par with Resisting as my fave of the series.

Every reader has an author they go to when they're in certain moods. Sometimes it's dark, sometimes it's comedy, sometimes it's erotic. The author i go to when i want everything? This one!

I always know KC's books are going to be well written. It's a given she knows how to build a story like no one else. Action packed and gripping every time. But it always catches me off guard the feeling you get reading her books. I get every feeling you can think of. Her words just manage to crack me open and make me feel it all. From sadness and doom, to fun and happy, to sexy and hot (wow lube!) to heartbreak and then tears of joy!!!

From the moment these characters meet you know it's a lifetime deal. They may have been separated but they were always going to just be. At some point they were going to make it. Of course it's never an easy road. Christopher broke my heart. Not gonna lie he did. I felt his guilt. Knew i would feel the same. But i just wanted to wrap my arms around him and tell him it wasn't his fault. A true hero would do the same. I will say the chapter of Cade's thrown in here was probably the best and the worst of this book. Tissues were all used up!

Alissa very much reminds me of Faith i can see exactly why Christopher loves her. She's strong and resilient and has a heart big enough to carry her and Christopher through the dark times. She's the Light. When she felt helpless as Christopher spiraled into darkness i love how although being supportive she let him have his space. She didn't moan and strop she supported him even if it killed her to leave him be.

Please don't think it's all dark and broody there are so many wonderful moments too. The love that fills your heart will consume you all the way through. It's so special I'm grinning typing this. The flashbacks to their joint pasts are wonderful, skateboarding and hubba bubba! Also sexy times? Yuhhh huhhhhhh hot, sexy, dirty, toe curling, i'm with ya baby, swoon worthy!!! The scenes with the music class had me snickering like a child.

Of course old faces are in here predominantly Cade and Faith which i absolutely loved because they're my fave KC Couple!! Also Ruthie and Mia. There's also little hints to their future books which I'm so excited about!!!

I just can't fault it. You would think this far into the series things may have become a little slower maybe or repetitive? NO!!! NO!!! NO!!! is still fresh and gripping and wonderful!!

I highly recommend this book. I guess you can read as a stand alone i don't see why not but, i would advise you to read the whole series. Not just Acts but Men of Honor too. Hell, read everything this author has written because honestly every last one of them will touch you in some way or other. I just love them and always will. These books are re-readers heaven!

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.”

  1. Yes, but I won't be for long. This sounds like I'm missing a lot.
