Hornet's Nest by Jaycee Ford

Katherine Klein has been warned: Stay far away from Lance Walton. After one night in the country, the quintessential city girl has the unwanted attention of the infamous country boy. For months, she's been dodging his advances, but a moment of weakness changes everything.

Lance Walton felt immediately drawn to Katherine from the moment she knocked on his best friend's door Christmas morning. Winning over this city girl is a mountain of a task for any country boy, but Lance is up to the challenge. He never expected the morning he left her naked at The Inn would be the last time he would see her.

In the aftermath of her bad decisions, Katherine returns to the city. Haunted by what they shared and all she lost, she vows to never return to the country. But the country finds her unexpectedly when Lance shows up in the most unlikely place. But does he have the country boy charm to break through the walls of her heart and outshine the big city competition?

4.5 star The story has laughs, pain, grief, betrayal, blackmail, and heartbreak. I was pulled right into this story. If you have not read the below I recommend reading those first: Watching Fireflies (Love Bug, #1) Dragonfly Awakening (Love Bug, #2) This is Lance and Katherine’s story. Lance and Katherine had one night then no word from each other. Now months later there are hurt feelings. Lance went to school and wanted to prove himself. He got a job and finds out on the first day he will be working with Katherine. Katherine is trying to move on since Lance. She starts dating another guy but does not feel for him what she feels for Lance. When she gets blackmailed will she be able to stick to the rules? Or will she end up breaking the rules and hurting Lance in the process? Can she be with Lance like she wants or is she about to lose him for good? I highly recommend this story and this series.

This is the third book in this series. It is Lance and Katherine's story. Lance has a rep for being a player and he has been happy to let people think that about himself that is until he meets Katherine. Katherine comes as soon as she finds out that Jordan has been kidnapped. She has heard all about Lance from Jordan. She know that when she finally meet him that she would have to hold herself back. However knowing it and doing it are two different things. Lance knows from the moment he meets Katherine that he wants her to be his. After Jordan saves herself and comes home Katherine goes back home. She doesn't come back till its time for Jordan and Tom to get married. Jordan isn't the only one having fun the wedding night. Lance lets Katherine know that he wants her, Katherine isn't sure she should do it but knows she wants too so she does. They have an amazing night together and in the morning Lance tells her that he doesn't want her to go back to the city. She says she has too. So Lance gets dressed and leaves. She doesn't hear from him and figures she got played by the country boy. After all she has heard all about him and still slept with him. Then one day at work a year later her boss tells her they have a new associate at the firm she works for in the accounting department. At the end of the day her boss introduces the new associate and it turns out to be Lance. They are both stunned and a bit angry. Lance is mad because out of the firm and accounting department he gets a job with the one woman who he wants forever who he thinks doesn't want him. Katherine because she has spent the last year trying to get over him and when she thinks she finally might be able to he comes back into her life. What are they going to do now? Did Lance really never try to get in contact with her? Will Lance get the second chance he wants? I love this series and was so excited to finally get to read Lance's story. Lance is cocky and sure of himself most of the time with the ladies. He knows he hasn't always been the nicest guy or done the right thing with past women. But he knew from the moment he saw Katherine that he wanted her and was going to prove how much to her. Katherine isn't very confident. He parents have money and she wanted to prove that she could be successful without help from her parents or their name. Lance and Katherine have an instant connection. They don't have any easy path though. They go through lots of misunderstanding before they finally catch a break. Lance is determined now that they are back in each other’s lives to take a second chance to show her how much he wants her. She doesn't know it but he is in love with her. They are both worried that the other will hurt them, Katherine more than Lance. Katherine and Lance are great characters. I love how all the characters from the previous books make appearances in this one as well. The books are wonderfully written; they are engaging and pull you in. Looking forward to more books in this series. Great job Jaycee.

Truly Delish Favorite Quotes: “I was obsessed.  Lance Walton was obsessed with a woman.  Hell had frozen over.” “I pulled out of the kiss and stared at him.  For the first time in my life, I felt complete.  I was in love with this man.” “I wanted to always remember this moment because I was petrified this would be our last.” My Review: I adore Jaycee Ford.  I nominate her to be exalted as a Writing Goddess and suggest her computer be converted into an altar.  At this altar, I vow to leave her offerings of Victoria’s Secret gift cards, chocolates, and beer - in hopes she would then write non-stop.  I have followed her work from the beginning with Watching Fireflies, and was instantly a smitten kitten.  Her characters are clever, funny, knowable, and likable.  Her writing is entertaining, addicting, easy to follow, deliciously sensual, and memorable.  I don’t follow many series as I tend to forget or confuse the details in the time span between volumes, but I don’t find that to be a problem with Ms. Ford’s work.  Lance and Katherine’s relationship story zigged and zagged more than her first two books, giving me a bit of cardio workout.  I had faith in a HEA result, but she certainly didn’t make it easy for them.   I am already eager to see whose story is up next.

What can I say about Jaycee Ford? What can I say about Hornet's Nest? Well first thing I will say is, you need to purchase this book today. Jaycee Ford has moved up into my top ten authors. I mean damn with all three of her books I can not figure out who I love the most. I do hope this is not it for this series. Jaycee I swear there better be more or I will have to grab a box of tissues and crawl into bed and cry. I need more hot cowboys. Now for a serious review. I love the story line for Lance and Katherine. From the first word to the final Jaycee has you captivated with these two. I seriously recommend you check out Jaycee Ford's work today.

Favorite Hero of the Series, Least Favorite Heroine. ⭐ ⭐ Provided by Author in Exchange for an Honest Review ⭐ ⭐ Judging a Book by it's Cover: Skies look turbulent, but the rays of hope are still shining through for the out-of-place cowboy. Synopsis sounds a little more interesting that the last one and bringing back a bit of suspense will be good. Looking Deeper: First person POV, alternating perspectives clearly defined. Hornet's Nest begins by briefly recapping Lance and Katherine's first time meeting over Jordan's kidnapping (book 1), then highlights a scene from their POV from Jordan and Tom's wedding (books 1 and 2). I'm a little torn on these characters. Lance has proven himself totally redeemable and kind-hearted. I think he's my favorite of the three best male friends. Katherine, on the other hand, I was really on the fence about. Anyone who drinks to a hangover point on a regular basis (work night's included) and can polish of a bottle of wine without even a slight buzz raises some serious red flags with me. Showing up hungover and the boss joking about it? Not professional. Secondary characters are comprised of a larger variety in this book, taking you out of the country and into Charlotte. We are reacquainted with Tom, Jordan, Paul, and Ellie along with a few locals and we meet new characters: co-workers, parents, godchildren and others. I seriously hated Josh and wished an anesthesia-free castration on him. Overall cast interaction was believable. Chemistry between our main characters felt natural, realistic. There were several times where lack of or mis- communications were at play, but again, Katherine rubbed me the wrong way with how she handled a lot of it. Lance really should have been sainted by the end to put up with it and still WANT a forever with her! The story flowed well and was each to read and follow. The plot was more dynamic than the second book, but not as exciting as book one. This one, however, DID draw me in emotionally more than the other two. Lance drew me in. He made me smile, he made me tear up. He made me be angry on his behalf ... he made me feel. Well done, Ms. Ford. Predictability was relatively low, although there were a few rather foreseeable things that were inevitable. The conclusion is solid enough although I would have loved to have seen if Teague gained an ally. In all, this book **CAN** stand alone, BUT I'd highly recommend you read WATCHING FIREFLIES, then DRAGONFLY AWAKENING before this one to gain a richer, fuller, and more rewarding story experience. This trilogy plays out like a surround sound IMAX story. It's unique in that way, but it's not overly done where any part feels redundant. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Rating: 4 [R] ~ Score: 4.1 ~ Stars: 4 -------------------------------------------------------------------------

I’m a huge fan of the Love Bug series by Jaycee Ford, and any time a new book in this series is released, I get giddy about which cowboy I’m going to get to fall in love with this time. Lance was one I had been introduced to early on in the series, and I kinda have a thing for the bad-boys, so he had already caught my attention then. Now, to get him in hand, with this new “I want to be the good guy for her” I was all ears … err, I mean eyes. I devoured this book, and fell for these characters, hard. Hornet’s Nest swiftly intertwines the previous novels, carrying over after the previous storyline, which makes me feel immersed in their world, and with all these friendships and relationships, it’s almost like I’m one of them as I read and watch it unfold. I’m the one rooting for these characters. I want them to make it, especially in matters of the heart. Lance and Katherine have a magnetic connection from the start (him getting a job at her firm, by complete accident, even if he had her on his mind since their tryst a long time before), and I couldn’t get enough. The sizzle and the spark had me desperately wanting them to stop being so back and forth and just communicate. But it made sense why. I also just wanted Katherine to give in to Lance, who’s green eyes and sure words had me swooning. haha. But it doesn’t matter, Lance, (oh my, Lance <3) wasn’t going to give up so easily, thank goodness. When the boy wants something, steam is surely to ensue. This book was angsty, playful, and sexy … not to mention some heart-thumping tension that involves blackmail and manipulation. But don’t worry, love always triumphs … and plus, Lance is just, ya know, super smart and sexy, even if Katherine has a hard time getting over the country boy in the big city *melts*. I loved the twist and turns the book took me on. Most of which, I didn’t necessarily expect, which was a nice surprise. This was a heart-warming read, while still having me fanning myself and anxious to see them succeed. If you like cowboys, reformed bad-boys in the name of love, and solid writing. Give this a read.
