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.
There are books that you come across that you just know are going to get to you. This is without a doubt one of those books. The feels that I had throughout this book were extraordinary. And the writing so magnificent that I was sucked in and could not put this book down.
Anna knows what hell is; she has been there and doesn’t ever want to go back. Her saving grace has been the love and support of Logan. It is because of him that she is able to put herself together again, move on and find herself. Finally when it looks like she will get the peace and happily ever after that she craves, one moment in time rips it all away.
One moment is all it takes for Logan to be thrust into hell. All he has ever wanted is to love and protect those that mean everything to him. But because of his actions, now he can’t. He does what he believes is the best in the circumstances, pushing everyone he loves away – especially Anna.
If you are a fan of KC’s Men of Honor series then you have already been introduced to Anna & Logan and are aware of Anna’s back story and her relationship to the men of those books. If not, you can still read this book quite easily as a standalone without any trouble.
I freaking love Anna. Her character is one of those absolute genuine characters. She is up there with my all time favorite female main characters. She truly had a heart of gold that shone through every aspect of her life. She shares her love and compassion freely and she very rarely expects anything in return, except loyalty. I loved that her feelings were transparent and that she never denied them nor gave up, even if she ended up getting hurt. Her passion seeps through effortlessly. After being rebuilt and secure through Logan’s actions when she is younger, she is now strong enough throughout this book to handle her man and love him despite it all.
Oh Logan…sigh…He has such a sense of honor. I loved how seriously he took his task of protecting those around him at whatever cost – and that cost was high at times. There was a moment there where he broke my heart and I didn’t know if he was going to be able to mend it. But in true, KC alpha fashion, he more than redeemed himself both in his actions and affections towards Anna. And man was he dirty when it came to Anna. The way that he claimed and then came to possess her was unreal. I adored the passion that he had for her.
These two were smoking hot together. There is absolutely no denying the attraction between the two of them, even when they are trying to pretend that it is not there. And the way that KC writes these steamy scenes had me so hot under the collar that I thought that I would self combust. The sexy scenes completely compliment the story and solidify the feelings of attraction and love between the pair.
KC has yet again delivered a book that pulls on your heart strings, winds its way through your blood, plays with your emotions and makes you damn grateful that she did. True to her style, her male is alpha to the extreme and when he loves, he loves hard. Couple this with a heroine who is strong enough to take on her man’s demons, love him unconditionally and be willing to stand by his side through everything and you have a winner of a book in my opinion.
I really cannot recommend this book enough. It has everything that you look for in a romance read. I cannot wait to read the next one and will wait with bated breath.
I received a copy of this book from the author to read and review.

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.
