Jaxson is arrogant, angry and aggressive. Yet he’s also beautiful, strong and honorable. I unconditionally and irrevocably love every damaged part of him. And for the boy, who didn’t believe in love, he would always and forever have mine. ~Julia Sinclair

Julia was different from anyone I’d ever met. I never thought someone so good and genuine existed until her. The more I saw of her the more I became addicted to her. Every time I was around her she would destroy some of the darkness that lurked inside of me. She made the bad shit in my life seem not so terrible. Then, before I knew it, I had fallen for a girl from another world. ~Jaxson Reid

Two unlikely friends—the innocent, good girl and the notorious bad boy. One fateful night brought them together, and they formed a bond—one so strong it was unbreakable—until one night they gave into temptation.

Fast forward five years and Jaxson is back to fix the mistakes he’s made with the only girl who’s ever mattered to him. Only someone isn’t happy with his return, someone who thinks Julia is theirs and they will stop at nothing to make sure it stays that way—forever.

Jaxson will not only fight to protect Julia, but will also battle the new and existing demons that haunt his soul from death, corruption, destruction and war.

This is Book One in the Men Of Honor series. It can be read as a standalone and has a HEA. It’s New Adult Romance and is told from both character’s POV. Due to strong sexual content, coarse language and mature subject matter this book is not suitable for anyone under the age of 18.

***Gladys – #NerdGirlOfficial’s  Review***
 This is the first book I read from KC Lynn and it wasn’t my last. I actually flew through the series and the spin off series while on bed rest. It didn’t help my blood pressure much because of the suspense, action and oh the tears but it kept me entertained. Did I mention the tears? Lots and lots of tears!!!

In this book we have Jaxon and Julia. Best friends since she moved to the peaceful beach town but love was in the air more than they both care to admit. Love at first sight is one thing but when one of the parties refuse to admit it for practically a decade, it causes quit a stir. Julia knew the town bad boy Jackson was the one but after graduation, the military and one heart wrenching moment in time, she knew she had to move on. BUT she did with someone Jaxon never approved of for her.

Well he is back and is most certainly very unhappy. He won’t stop at nothing to protect what’s his. Julia won’t back down even though her heart always belonged to Jax. She knew that she had to protect her heart at all cost! What in the world is a girl to do? Find out. Run and grab the book NOW. I was coming off a series hangover from the KGI Series by Maya Banks and I will say that KC Lynn helped nurse me back.

5 terrifical stars, a salute and a tip of my Nerd Girl Hat!! Stayed tuned for more reviews for her other books in her series.
