Review of Shades of Honor:
This book is so well written, that you feel like your a part of the families and realizing this story is unfolding as you live it....If you don't like this book, for whatever reason, it's solely because you don't know the meaning of the word LOVE. This has to be one of the

I got the book because it was free and was happy to pay for the rest. I loved that Wendy has more of the brothers, I fell in love withn them all.. Very well written and warmed my heart, a slow burn that drawls you in so that you feel for all her charters not just the main ones. Cant wait to read the other books.

Woulnt you know the very first so called review is harriet klausner and her cliff note book report ruining the book. Please bn, ban this poster and delete her plot spoiling posts that ruin a book for other readers. We would like a chance to read a book for ourselves without this egotistical poster ruining it for us.

Radford and Evelyn's story is full of emotion. Family ties are put to the test through this 575 page read. Love conquers all..... Great love story.

Enjoyed reading a story that has great characters and not too graphic. I bought the rest and think the entire series will be just as good! I will look forward to more books by Ms. Lindstrom in the future.

To the anonymous posters that will rate a book one star, the poorest rating, just because they aren't happy with the content of a REVIEW: most people shopping for a good read will notice the number of stars this book has accumulated. Not all will read each review posted. By using the stars to express your unhappiness with a process that exists for fellow readers only,and has nothing to do with the content of the product we are considering purchasing, you are not only throwing off the whole review process, but you are being disrespectful to the author of the book. It's like telling a director his movie is awful because your friend ruined the plot for you while you were standing in line to buy a ticket! Please! The only way we can save this review process is to start using it how it was intended to be used. Read the synopsis, read the book, review the book honestly. Thank you!

This book is an excellent read! I couldn't put it down. Each of the characters are strong, believable, and real. The love and friendship between the brothers and their families is something I have tried to instill in my family. Excellent book! Highly recommend it to anyone.

I lost sleep because I didn't want to stop reading-the characters are so believable and you can truly lose yourself in the story-

There are no explicit sex scenes, every other word is not a cuss word, it's a good old fashioned love story that gives me tingles and keeps me reading. I walked away thinking .... I want to live there, be her, have him....

I truly enjoyed reading about Radford and Evelyn. The story line caught my attention and I ended up loving all the Grayson brothers to the point I had to read the story about each brother. I hated finishing the books. Once I started reading them I couldn't quit. I am lending them to my sister so she can enjoy them as much as I did. The love Radford finds with Evelyn is unconditional. Great story!

This was a great book. It just keeps drawing you deeper and deeper into characters to the point where you could feel their love and their pain. I highly recommend it.
