Synopsis


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 of 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.






"Even heroes have the right to bleed"
You know what's the hardest part of reading KC Lynn's works? It's never the story, it's not even the characters. Because in the real sense, reading KC Lynn's books feels like heaven. Sure there are heart-wrenching scenes and soul crushing moments that will bleed your heart out and in turn, will eventually lead you to sob and bawl like a baby, but no...it was never that. The hardest part always are coping up with the emotional roller coaster and writing the review. Nothing can ever express an emotion that will give justice to any of her works. That, and a book hangover that will make you question, "now, what's next?" and a plea for "please KC Lynn, I want more... I needed more!" So please...bear with me and my ramblings cuz I know for sure it will be difficult for me to form coherent thoughts.

Seriously, as always, it was so hard for me to express my thoughts and emotions into writing every time I finish a KC Lynn book. It took me several tries constructing a sentence not knowing where to start, how to start, the in-betweens and even ending it. My God!!! Her works are my kryptonite, my emotions were all over that it was so hard for me to write what I feel and what's on my mind. That's what happened to me with An Act of Courage. Because nothing prepared me for this book. Tissues, wine, chocolates...ahh those were prepared already after knowing another release is coming, but it wasn't enough. Those were not enough for what I feel right now writing this review. It was only the tip of the iceberg.

She's my anchor, my light
My salvation in the night
My angel, my peace
The best part of me
GAHD! I read this book over and over to relive the moment with a thought that maybe after several rereading, I can pull this off, but to no avail - I just keep on sobbing. My heart was crushed into bits of pieces I was gasping for air to breathe. I just do not know, but because I have known Christopher way back with Resisting Temptation, scenes from that book feels like yesterday. It feels like so new that with this book right now I can still feel the pain. In as much as I wanted to say MOH is my favorite, and that Sawyer and Cade are the top MOH for me, I cannot deny the fact that Christopher have a special place in my heart. When he was a kid then, he already stole it, but right now, he OWNED it. It was his. And when I say I've been rooting for him... I am and always will be. That's the reason why, I too was looking forward with his happily ever after with Alissa. The woman that brought light into his darkness. The only woman he loves and can't resist. They are just perfect for each other. When you read the book, you will understand my sentiments right now, Because more than anybody else, it is Christopher and Alissa that is worthy of forever. It was them worthy of love and happiness especially Christopher. What he went through broke me. Up until now I can still feel the pain. Even days after reading this book, I still cried over a man who experienced life's cruelties. And Cade's right you know... it was An Act of Courage and this book title when you read it will just really made sense.
Overall, I could definitely say, KC Lynn did not just made an amazing job. She excelled it. This book is EVERYTHING AND SO MUCH MORE. I may have sobbed, ugly cried and gutted but I cannot deny the fact that my journey with Christopher and Alissa is a fun one too. It had me swooning and wanting a cold shower because holy hell those sizzling sex scenes were scorching!!! I even laugh out loud with other scenes too and smiled so big. The gang may not all be present but the Walkers were there. And I miss them so much. Yes, KC Lynn did that to me. Reading this book had me into a roller coaster of emotions. And I LOVE IT BIG TIME! But you know what had me with this book? It was full of HEART. Clear enough of how KC Lynn poured her heart and soul over Christopher's book and I couldn't ask for more. She incredibly delivered this story and she aimed not just to please nor to entertain. In my case, she moved me and made a better person out of me. I was touched with this story. I may have been pained, broken but you know what? I was healed beautifully just like how he healed Christopher. Because with An Act Of Courage? You may be broken, but you will be fixed in the most beautiful way.

To end, I love this book so much! It's addicting and unforgettable and this book will forever remain in my heart. Kudos KC Lynn! As always, your book is EPIC! My God, I wanna be you! No one, can pull a book as epic as your's and I am forever grateful I stumbled upon your works. You still managed to move me, touch me in the the most possible ways until all this time. Your characters and stories are imprinted in my heart and mind. 




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.”
