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.

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.

Review

Before going into this story, this story is a very short novella, easy to be read in an hour or two. Because if you go in thinking it’s a full length you are going to be disappointed. I know I was. But this a good thing. The story is gripping and captures from the first sentence and doesn’t let you go until the end. It shows a quick look into the life that the Men of Honor have created for their families and how they get along (made me think of the 1950s and how they went to school with Julia).

The scenario in which we find the story is something that has plagued America for decades. It involves all the men that we have fell in love with over the books and shows how they all bond together when they need to. While we got to see that horrific scene on how they bonded together during their time in the military, we see how that bond never wavered and only got stronger (with the addition of Cooper) especially when it comes to their families.

While the story touches on some sensitive subject, it does have a steamy scene at the beginning of the story to just remind you that there is good and bad in the world. I love the world that KC Lynn has created here and I can’t wait to see where she takes us next. They are perfect down to the last period and she creates characters that have their problems, sure, but are strong at heart. And really, that’s what’s most important.

Pay attention to the epilogue as there is some hidden Easter eggs in the pages that connect multiple stories in one and weaves a new web for us to follow.

‘An Act of Courage’ by KC Lynn is out! Buy your copy today!


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 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.


EXCERPT:  
I’m sucked in so deep there’s no coming back—no fighting it. I can smell the desolation and death of the cell, my muscles protruding from my skin, almost ripping out of my body as I try to free myself, his screams of agony ricocheting off the walls.

Then it changes.

I’m down on my knees, my eyes on fire, face soaked in sweat, tears, and blood. Despair grips me with the decision I face.

One I can’t make.

I can’t bring myself to do it.

“Please, man. I’m fucking begging you!”

The guilt swallows me whole, leaving me in a black abyss, my own personal hell. I stare down at my hands that are stained red—blood that will forever haunt my soul.

The roar that rips from my chest shreds my vocal cords, ripping me apart from the inside out. I become nothing more than a shell of what I once was and it’s exactly what I deserve…

I’ve killed countless times for the sake of my country and its freedom but it was the one death I was forced to take that changed my existence forever~ Christopher Walker, An Act of Courage

Review
Heartbreakingly beautiful.

That is it.

That is what this story is.

It tells the story of Christopher Walker who has been dealt a really crappy hand with a father who abused him and his sister and killed his mother. But was saved from that life from Faith and Cade.

But it was Alissa that saved him from himself. Until he goes to war and comes out a broken man.

Much like the other Men of Honor series, we see the transformation of Christopher as he goes from shy, 15 year old boy thinking he’s worthless to the alpha male man that is plagued by a decision that haunts him for his life.

This story is one of the darkest stories from KC Lynn (with Unlawful Justice still being the darkest for me) and she does it in a way that doesn’t have you give up hope. She showcases the struggle that soldiers have to deal with when coming home from war that you would have thought she fought in a war herself. I was completely immersed in this story that I forgot that it was just that. A story. I felt like I was living it, feeling the ache that Christopher has to deal with on a daily basis.

Now for the lighter side (or the side we all love) romance! Yes there are scorching scenes and if you follow her on Facebook you know a few of the scenes I’m talking about. I love the connection between Alissa and Christopher because I am one of those hopeless romantics that think love can help heal all wounds. 

In my eyes KC Lynn can write no wrong. It’s getting to the point that I wonder if she will even write a book I wouldn’t like. She has a whimsical way of writing that makes you relate to the characters but when it gets real, you feel that pain with you. It’s amazing writing and I can’t see what she has in store for us next.



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.”

‘Sweet Haven’ by KC Lynn release day blitz

sweet-haven

Blurb

Two cups of an arrogant, dirty talkin’ firefighter who has an obsession with peaches and the forbidden girl who smells like them.

One tablespoon of a sweet schoolteacher trying to find her place in the world while attempting to resist her brother’s sworn enemy. 

A slice of fate that has their hearts questioning the past and the consuming need they have for one another. 

A dash of desire.

A pinch of rivalry.

A sprinkle of déjà vu. 

Mix together in a large bowl to create a combustible passion and a future that neither of them could have ever predicted.

Bake at 350° for a rich serving of destiny and a love that could burn for eternity. 

A timeless recipe that is sure to fill your heart with a generous helping of Sweet Haven.

*** 

This a longer length novella and is the second book in the Sweet series. It is told in dual POV, has an HEA, and no cliffhanger. Since Samantha and Jase are recurring characters from Sweet Temptation and Sweet Love, I recommend reading both books prior to this but it isn’t a must. 

 

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.

Review

There are Facebook groups out there that can help you find the next one-click author. That is what happened with KC Lynn. I found her on one of those sites because her first book, Fighting Temptation, was free. It looked interesting enough, so I dove in.

And I was hooked since page 1.

Right out of the gate, I fell in love with Jaxson as he had so many layers of stuff going on and how he would do anything to protect the woman that he loved, even though he knows that he’s not good enough. As we progress in the series, we meet a new couple with each book (book 2’s Sawyer and Grace are still my favorite) as each man of honor proves that they deserve that title but also prove that love can soften even the hardest of hearts (ie Cade).

This book only adds to how amazing this series is.

We follow Sawyer’s sister, Sam as she gets ready to move to be with his Sawyer and her parents, but runs into a difficult decision when her fling with Jase (Sawyer’s enemy) turns into something much more.

I knew/hoped that we would be seeing more of Jase when we first meet him in Sweet Temptation. He is just too great of a character not to have in another book and I figured it would be one of his sisters, because come on, that’s the best kind of dilemma right? But what I didn’t expect was just how much I would love Jase. Like Sawyer, his ego makes it difficult for him to walk into a room and also like Sawyer, he has a good heart and good soul.

Sam is coming off a rough relationship with her ex (who we all hated let’s be honest) and she doesn’t think very highly of herself. Good thing Jase things highly enough for both of them. He is able to give her confidence again because I think that we have all had that point in our lives when we think very low of ourselves. We need people that we love to make us feel better.

I love love love the characters that KC Lynn writes because they are funny, caring, and real. They have flaws like any other person but they overcome those flaws to be the best people that they can be. She talks about how anyone can find love especially when they least expect it and how no matter how bad life gets, if you have hope, love, and faith there is nothing that you can’t do.

‘An Act of Obsession’ by KC Lynn – a love story to end all love stories

an act of obsession

 

Title: An Act of Obsession (Acts of Honor Series – Book 3)
Author: KC Lynn
Release Date: July 20, 2016
TBR Link: Goodreads
Synopsis


She’s beautiful yet scarred beyond repair. 

 

He’s powerful and lethal, in and out of the ring. 
One act of kindness brought Sophie Parish far more danger than she could have ever imagined. Now she’s on the run, leaving behind her family and the only dream she’s ever had. 
Retired EFC fighter Kolan Slade’s life has been one endless battle after another. He has a dark past with an even darker desire—the only one he’s ever known. 
Until he meets Sophie. 
Intrigued by her raw beauty and the secrets she’s trying to hide, Kolan craves to know who she is and what she’s running from. 
Protecting her becomes his obsession and he’ll sacrifice it all to save her. But in the end her love will have him questioning himself and everything he thought he knew.

 

Excerpt

Reaching my SUV, I place her feet on the ground and cage her against the passenger door, bracing both my hands on either side of her head. “And what about you, Lia?” I ask, dipping my head in close to hers. “Hmm? You know my secrets. What about yours?”

She might not know all of mine but she knows enough.

“What is it you want to know?” she asks, a slight tremble in her voice.

“I want to know who you are and where you came from. But more than anything, I want to know what you’re hiding under that scarf.”

The stark pain that enters her eyes strikes me to my fucking core. “Trust me, you don’t want to see what’s under there. I can’t even bear to look at it myself.”

“Nothing scares me.”

It’s a complete lie. She scares the hell out of me.

A heavy silence descends upon us, her pretty eyes wide and fearful.

“What are you so afraid of?” I ask.

Her breath hitches, emotion shining bright in her gaze. “Everything.”

There’s so much despair in that one word that I want to fucking kill whoever put it there. Unable to resist, I gently drop my forehead on hers, my jaw locking as I restrain myself from doing what I really want to do.

“I’m going to respect your privacy…for now. But one day, you’re going to tell me who made you so afraid. And if they’re still breathing—they won’t be for much longer.”

Her eyes fall closed, lip trembling as she tries to shield her pain from me. “Some secrets, Kolan, are best left unknown.”

“Not between us. The day will come when there will be no more secrets between us.”

Her eyes open, locking with mine, but she remains silent. I press my lips to her forehead then reach for the door handle. “Come on. Let’s go home.”

Review

In this book we follow Kolan, the man that was accused and then cleared of rape, as he tries to clean up the mess that was made of his reputation and finds solace when he meets Sophie. Sophie is running from a demon in her past and when she meets Kolan instead of running from him (like other people do) she runs to him.

The book starts off with a bang when there is a lot of action. We quickly get to see what’s going on with Sophie and what forces her to run. A part of me was happy (not to read it) but to know what happened, but a part of me wasn’t. Sometimes I like it when you have to figure it out, but knowing allow me to see how that dynamic effects Kolan.

There is a scene in the book where they are dancing in the boxing ring and I literally melted when I read that scene. It was so beautiful and perfect that in just a few pages you fall in love with the characters. They have that moment that is usually only seen in the movies and what we all dream that we will have because it’s the first time that Kolan really lets Sophie see his vulnerable side. And for someone like him, that’s everything.

Sophie is the perfect kind of person that Kolan needs in his life. He doenst think that he is worthy of love or happiness and considering what we found out in An Act of Salvation with Katelyn and Kolan’s home life, it make senses. But Sophie is able to get him to see the light and see that he deserves love. Most of the book is showing them falling in love and it’s not just them having those love scenes. In fact, the first love scene isn’t until about three quarters of the book. I like that they spent more time falling in love so that when it happened, it happened in a big way.

Unlike the other books in this spin-off series, we don’t see too much of the original characters from Men of Honor series. I was sad to see this because I love those guys, but the glimpses that we do see, is enough to hold me over until we get to the other spin-off series.

Like the other books of the series, Kolan is going to melt your heart and grab your love because he is that sweet little puppy on the side of the road that you just want to take home and make your baby.
