Overview

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.

Julia & jaxson have been best friends since teenagers. Julia is a sweetie, beautiful inside & out. But I hated how she absolutely melts & excuses jaxson's emotional mistreatment of her throughout the years from the time she is seventeen to adulthood. Yes, he is outstandingly sexy & he smirks about it to her & the countless women he has sex with. He gets to be a manwhore but warns all the guys away from julia even though he insists they are just friends. Thru the years, he hurts her over & over again. It is horrible what he, his special forces team mates, & innocent civilians suffered when he & his team are captured. But he kept on hurting her even before that & after he came back. I also cringed when julia keeps on telling him she loves him, even when he reacts by being stonefaced.. I don't know how many times she tells him she loves him! He keeps on sending her mixed messages by having hot sex with her, being jealous and protective any time another guy looks at her. Arrgh! & she keeps on letting him trample on their so called friendship!

It was pretty good, nicely written and about 315 pages. It is very dramatic though, Julia cries almost in every chapter and Jaxson's nickname is The Incredible Hulk..... Overall, while Jaxson really doesn't treat Julia all that well I really enjoyed every character, the storyline and am even considering getting Grace and Sawyer's book.

Jaxson has a hair trigger which is highly unlikely for an ex-SEAL, and she just cries ALL the time. Story is okay, but enough with the histrionics from the two female leads, and Jaxson too.

Strong characterization and good story line. Immediately I became involved with and in tune with the depth of feeling projected by the main characters. The blatant sex was too much for me but the overall story was. good.

This my first book from K.C. LYNN and i must admit that this is one really good start into the series. This book was on sale so i said why not. I am wery happy that i started reading this one. I really enjoyed reading it. I liked hov the story flowed., hov their friendship grave into tru love. I fell in love with Jaxon right alongside Julia, they show such a raw but pure form of devotion to each other. So it is a really nice story how Jaxson saves Julia at the beginning of the book, but then Julia saves Jaxson just by loving him.The sex scenes were really hot and steamy, so not for shy people. This is a standalone book, and I was really happy that there were no cliffhanger. I reccomend this book to everyone who likes a good love story. Comment Comment | Permalink

I absolutely loved this book. The story line was unbelievable. Jaxon sounds sexy as hell and Julia sounds so beautiful not just on the outside but also the inside. Jaxon and Jules are meant to be ,right from the very begining. Jaxon is the most stubborn and angry man ever but he has had to deal with not only a terrible childhood but then as an adult he becomes a Navy Seal to protect people unfortunately he's unable to save himself before he and his friend are tortured. Julia has always been his light in the darkness. She loves him with everything she is and he loves her too but can't bring himself to tell her. When she tells him she loves him he freaks out thinking he doesn't deserve love especially from Jules. The chemistry between them is off the charts smokin hot! Not only does he save her life but she also saves his. The secondary characters are such an essential part of bring this story together. I highly recommend this book to everyone. I felt such a plethora of emotions while reading this book and I loved every minute of it.
