Review: KC Lynn kicks off a new series with a scorcher in ‘Ultimate Sacrifice’

ultimate sacrifice

Format: e-book, paperback
Format read: arc
Series: book 1 of Men of Courage series
Rating: 18+ for sexual content, language
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Goodreads page: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/32703577-ultimate-sacrifice

In the first book of this spin off series involving our most loved Men Of Honor guys, we get a set of new hot guys that we are going to be salivating over. First up to bat is Austin Hawke. He has loved Zoey forever but she has so much going on in her life that she doesn’t have time for love. That is until Austin is able to make her see that she can do both.

While the menu is the same that we have seen from the other books. Alpha male + sassy girl = explosive romance. But the way that KC Lynn writes the story, you wouldn’t know that you already read a book with the same make up. The characters each have their own ghosts in their closet that we get to try to figure out how they will play in the world. And this story has so many stories with loose ends that will play dividends in the future.

I love me some KC Lynn books so I knew I would like this one. But I will say I had such high expectation that this one didn’t quite reach. Do I like Austin? Yes. I really enjoyed this story. But unfortunately, I compared it to the Men of Honor series and I just didn’t get as attached to Austin as I did those guys in the original trilogy. This could of course change. As opinions often do. But initial reading is that while it’s an enjoyable read, it doesn’t take the spot to my MOH couples.

The story doesn’t have a big cliff hanger per se, but it definitely leaves you wanting more. And it’s not just because of the hot guy Austin. No this STORY has you wanting more. There is a underlying mystery that is happening and you want to know what, how, why, and who.

BLURB:
Fate made us brothers, loyalty made us family.
A bond that runs deeper than the Mississippi, my brothers and I might not have the same DNA but what we share is far more powerful. Our loyalty to one another and the man who made us a family is stronger than those bound by blood.
The most sought out sharp shooters in the country, our paths were certain, before one woman changed my life and altered the relationship I have with my brothers.
Ryanne Lockwood disappeared without a trace but her memory never faded, torturing me on the darkest nights. Until a twist of fate leads me back to her, sending our worlds to collide once more, and this time, there will be no escaping me.
***
Justice Creed’s bad boy appeal caught my attention from the moment he rolled into town. For years I watched from afar, swallowing up the rumors that surrounded him.
Until we shared a night of forbidden passion. One that destroyed my heart and reshaped my soul, and it sent me fleeing from the only town I’ve ever known.

Now, years later, he’s barged back into my life, uncovering a secret I’ve worked so hard to keep and it’s one that will change our lives forever.

Book of the Week – ‘Cockloft’ by KC Lynn

Cockloft: A firefighter term used as a structural space above ceiling and below rafters, often connecting adjacent occupancies and permitting fire to spread laterally, often unseen.

Gabriel Martinez is the most arrogant and infuriating man I’ve ever met. He has a knee-weakening smirk that makes me want to kiss—no—slap it off his rude, sexy face. Judging by his ego, you’d think the hose in his pants is as big as the one on his fire truck. Not that I know anything about that nor do I want to. Nope, not at all. He’s already been forgotten like last season’s Michael Kors.

CeCe Kensington is as pretentious and spoiled as they come. The ridiculous purses she shoulders around are as big as her attitude. And don’t get me started on her mile-long legs or full, glossy lips that are meant to be wrapped around a guy’s… If she only knew the dirty things I think about doing to that sassy mouth of hers, she’d be hightailing it back to her side of town.

✿¸.•´¸✿*´¨) ¸.•*¨✿

When the beautiful boutique owner and sexy firefighter meet in the most unlikely situation, their two worlds collide, creating an explosion of misperceptions and combustible heat, trapping them in a fire they never saw coming.

Review

Hot fireman? Fiesty blonde who loves purses? You had me at hot fireman.

This book is a little different from what we are used to from KC Lynn (and it’s complete opposite from her last book that was very dark and deeply emotional). This book is light hearted and fun, and shows the lighter side of love. I loved the back and forth between the two characters and there is something about a man who can speak another language to you that just melts you a little bit.

The story follows CeCe Kensington who we meet in Beautifully Insightful. She is dealing with the death of her father and trying to move on with her life while finding love like her best friend. She doesn’t expect to fall for Fireboy, Gabe Martinez. Especially because he lives to push her buttons.
And oh the buttons does he push.

He is a bit of a hothead who is stubborn and doesn’t have a filter. At times, you enjoy this because he doesn’t hide how he fells about CeCe. Think Sawyer but about 10x more sexier (and I love me some Sawyer). Gabe doesn’t try and act like he doesn’t care for her and his caveman comes out almost the second that he meets her.

For me, I love KC Lynn books. Love them, but I also know that not every book is going to be your favorite. I really enjoyed this book, but I was a little disappointed with the climax/problem of the story. There is this big build up that something is going to go down, especially because of their different backgrounds. But it felt a little too quick and I was a little disappointed.

Top 5 books coming out in August

 

#5 – The Wright Mistake by KA Linde
Out: 8/8

A new stand alone enemies-to-lovers romance by USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde…

I spent six weeks screwing Austin Wright’s brains out and all I got was this broken heart.

He can’t be trusted. Not with my body or my heart. Yet, two years have passed and I still crave him like an addict needing a fix.

The last time we tried this, it nearly ruined me. I know I should run and never look back. But his dark haunted eyes and razor blade smile speak to my soul. His touch sets my body on fire. And we all know what happens when you light gasoline. Someone is bound to get burned.

A second chance might destroy us both.

Because everyone knows two wrongs don’t make a Wright.

#4 – Drunk Dial by Penelope Ward
Out: 8/21

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.

It seemed like a good idea at the time. Look up Landon Roderick, that boy from childhood whom I’d never been able to forget—even though he so easily forgot about me—and call him.

Then again, anything sounds like a good idea when you’ve had a little too much wine before bed, right? It was supposed to be just a quick, meaningless, prank call. Instead, I went off on him—unloading thirteen years of pent-up emotions.

I didn’t think he’d call me back.

I certainly could never have anticipated the weeks of sexually tense phone conversations that followed as I got to know the man he’d become.

Turned out, Landon had never really forgotten me, either. That special connection we had was still there. I opened up to him, but there were also things about me he didn’t know. And he had his own secrets.

Over the countless hours we talked on the phone, I wondered what would happen if we actually saw each other. One night, I did something impulsive again. Only this time, I went to the airport and booked a ticket to California. We were about to find out if one phone call could bring two lost souls together or if my drunk dial really was all just a big mistake.

A complete STANDALONE.

#2 – Royally Endowed by Emma Chase
Out: 8/14

Logan St. James is a smoldering, sexy beast. Sure, he can be a little broody at times—but Ellie Hammond’s willing to overlook that. Because, have you seen him??

Sexy. As. Hell.

And Ellie’s perky enough for both of them.

For years, she’s had a crush on the intense, gorgeous royal security guard—but she doesn’t think he ever saw her, not really.

To Logan, Ellie was just part of the job—a relative of the royal family he’d sworn to protect. Now, at 22 years old and fresh out of college, she’s determined to put aside her X-rated dreams of pat-downs and pillow talk, and find a real life happily ever after.

The Queen of Wessco encourages Ellie to follow in her sister’s footsteps and settle down with a prince of her own. Or a duke, a marquis…a viscount would also do nicely.

But in the pursuit of a fairy tale ending, Ellie learns that the sweetest crushes can be the hardest to let go.
***
Logan St. James grew up on the wrong side of the tracks, in a family on the wrong side of the law. But these days, he covers his tattoos and scars with a respectable suit. He’s handsome, loyal, brave, skilled with his hands and…other body parts.

Any woman would be proud to call him hers.

But there’s only one woman he wants.

For years he’s watched over her, protected her, held her hair back when she was sick, taught her how to throw a punch, and spot a liar.

He dreams of her. Would lay down his life for her.

But beautiful Ellie Hammond’s off-limits.

Everybody knows the bodyguard rules: Never lose focus, never let them out of your sight, and never, ever fall in love.

#1 – Beneath the Truth by Meghan March
Out: 8/8

I used to believe there were lines in life you don’t cross.
Don’t lie. Don’t cheat. Don’t steal.
Until I learned people don’t always practice what they preach.
I turned in my badge and gun and walked away from everything.
Then I got the call no one wants, and I’m back in New Orleans.
What I don’t expect is for her to be here too.
Another line you don’t cross?
Don’t touch your best friend’s little sister.
She’s always been off-limits.
Too bad I don’t follow the rules anymore.

Other books that are coming out are For Forester by J. Nathan (8/2), Wicked Wishes by Sawyer Bennett (8/11), The Soul Mate by Kendall Ryan (8/14), Thousands by Pepper Winters (8/22).

Book of the Week – ‘Fighting with Honor’ by KC Lynn

Once a man pledges his honor to his country, that sacrifice is embedded in his soul forever. For years he’s trained to fight, kill, and do whatever necessary to protect his country and its freedom, even if it means giving his own life.

He becomes more of a machine than human—one that’s built to destroy the enemy.

When it’s time to turn in his weapons, he never forgets the skills he learned. Never forgets the smell of death or feel of a rifle in his hands. The same hands that one day cradle his baby girl and caress the skin of his beautiful wife.

If anything or anyone ever tried to steal away the family he has vowed to love and protect, may God have mercy on their soul.

You can buy the book on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, iBook, and Kobo.

Other books coming out is Hating You/Dating You by Christina Lauren.
