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.

My Thoughts
Holy balls, batman! Where the hell have I been that I had no idea the amazingness that is KC Lynn and the Men Of Honor???? Sweet Lord above, I am crawling out from under this rock right now and falling in love with them all. Whew. This friends-to-lovers novel was fan-friggin-tastic and has me moving KC Lynn to my top five authors list.
Jaxon and Julia. Lordy Be,  these two characters. What can I say about them? First, I can say that I absolutely, wholly fell in love with Julia. She was beautifully chiseled and her character moved my heart in so many ways. But, Jaxon. Oh how I loved me some him. His character was tortured, both physically and emotionally, and the power that came with him despite that, was absolutely breathtaking.
Mixed into the heartache and pain, mixed into the smiles and happiness, is incredible side characters, a stunning plot line that is so full of angst that you’ll feel your heart crack in a million pieces only to be stitched back together again by the most sexiest of characters.
This is a 5 star worthy….no. This is a 5 million star worthy start to Lynn’s Men Of Honor series, and one that will be forever on my shelf. I’m talking if Hurricane Dorian hits us the way they say it will, I’m bagging this baby up and putting it in a vault that will withstand the winds, the rain, the torment. That’s how hard I loved this novel. That’s how much I recommend this amazing story. That’s how much I will always want to have these books on my shelf. Go. Now. Run. Get your copy and fall in love with Jax and Julia’s story!

About K.C. Lynn

K.C. Lynn is a small town girl living in Western Canada. She grew up in a family of four children—two sisters and a brother. Her mother was the lady who baked homemade goods for everyone on the street and her father was a respected man who worked in the RCMP. He’s since retired and now works for the criminal justice system. This being one of the things that inspires K.C. to write romantic suspense about the trials and triumphs of our heroes.

K.C. married her high school sweetheart and they started a big family of their own—two adorable girls and a set of handsome twin boys. They still reside in the same small town but K.C.’s heart has always longed for the south, where everyone says ‘y’all’ and eats biscuits and gravy for breakfast.

It was her love for romance books that gave K.C. the courage to sit down and write her own novel. It was then a beautiful world opened up and she found what she was meant to do…write.

When K.C.’s not spending time with her beautiful family she can be found in her writing cave, living in the fabulous minds of her characters and their stories.
