An elite warrior struggling to find his place in the civilian world.
Weary from his years on the battlefield, SF Captain Beckett Hollister has returned home to Crimson Point to take over the family business for his dying father. But adjusting to life outside the military is harder than he imagined, and being back home forces him to confront things he’d rather not face. Including the one woman he shouldn’t want and can’t have—his best friend’s little sister.
A love that was always meant to be.
Town vet Sierra Buchanan has known Beckett her entire life. She’s crushed on him for years, but because of his relationship with her family, the stubborn man refuses to see her as more than the girl he grew up with. As tragedy brings them together, neither of them realizes that the sins of Beckett’s past have come home to haunt him. When Sierra becomes the target of his unforeseen enemy, Beckett must vanquish his demons to save her.
4 Star Review by Ashley
I know I've said it before but Romantic Suspense is my jam and I'm always looking for new authors who write this genre and write it well. There was a lot happening in Fractured Honor. Being the first book in the series, some of it was set-up for some of the story lines that will play out in the other books. Even with all that happened, and all the players introduced it wasn't hard to follow at all and Kaylea Cross had me glued to my kindle.
Mostly because the slow burn and forbidden nature of Sierra and Beckett was too delicious to turn away from. I really liked Sierra. She was smart and brave and vulnerable and so in love with Beckett she couldn't see straight some days. Oh Beckett. Such a good man. An honorable man. A man who had served his country and family with pride. A man who was set on denying his pull to Sierra. His best friend Noah's sister.
Throw a curious little neighbor and a sweet old pup into the mix and it was just the opening Sierra needed to push Beckett. Oh how he tried to push her away. But he was helpless when it came to her. And when he finally gave it, it was sexy and emotional and what they had both longed for. These two were just it for each other.
But a ghost from Beckett's past decided to come along and stir up trouble. Kudos to Kaylea Cross for not making it the obvious choice (I knew it wouldn't be). But who it really was totally blindsided me. My heart was pounding until it skipped a beat during that final showdown. From family to foes and forgiveness and friendship, Fractured Honor kept me riveted. Not only was it action packed but it delivered an emotional blow too. Sierra and Beckett were the perfect friends-to-lovers couple. I can't wait to see what is in store for this small town and it's heroes as they find love.
