Honor by Kennedy Layne

Book Description

A high school reunion is about to get down and dirty and a whole lot more complicated in this new romantic suspense from USA Today Bestselling Author Kennedy Layne.

Derek Spencer hadn't even bothered to RSVP to his Catfish Creek's high school reunion. He'd been too busy fighting a war in Afghanistan in his capacity as a Marine and wouldn't even be in the States during the event. Unfortunately, one emergency phone call from his mother changed everything.

Tessa Daniels had been voted most likely to do everything back in high school. She somehow didn't think that included acquiring her very own stalker at the relatively young age of twenty-eight. It had stopped being simply annoying after someone broke into her house, invading her privacy. Now, she was actually in fear for her life.

Derek's mother feels terrible that her son has spent almost every waking hour at the hospital, watching over his recovering father. She sets out--and succeeds--in arranging for Derek and Tessa to attend their high school reunion together. Neither one of them expected sparks to fly or memories of long-lost crushes to emerge, but they are not only faced with their newfound passion...they must also confront the person trying to extinguish their chance to rekindle the flames of past desires.

AVALABLE: June 27, 2017

Honor by Kennedy Layne is part of Bad Boy Homecoming series.  It is 5 different authors that focus on 10 different people (5 *couples*) that all come together for their 10 year high school reunion.  

One thing that I think is starting to get overused in books is the term "Bad Boy".  To me, Derek didn't fit into that category.  That being said, I still liked this quick read.  The description of this book is pretty much the story, so I won't add more to ruin any twists this book has!!

If you are looking for a quick read, and like the sound of this book, then I recommend picking up Honor!

Rating: 3.5 out of 5

Game of Chance by Erika Wilde

Book Description

A former Marine and Las Vegas vice cop, Nathan Fox has seen it all and then some. Heading up security for the Onyx Casino is tame compared to his dark past, but it's not his only job. Working for the Reliance Group is his real passion project. His current case: a missing woman. His mission: to find her. Easy enough, until he finds himself tangled up with sexy Nicole Hutton, a stubborn—and stunning—journalist who's nosed her way into his investigation . . . and into his dirty, erotic fantasies.

Resisting Nicole is impossible, and he soon discovers that in this dangerous high stakes game of chance, falling in love is the greatest risk of all.

Originally published as INTO THE NIGHT by Janelle Denison, March 2011

AVAILABLE: June 8, 2017

Game of Chance is a sexy, fast-paced, romantic suspense that has everything you could want.  A hero and heroine that are both strong, independent, and determined to make a difference in the world, that find each other in Sin City as they are thrown into a world of sex, prostitution, and human-trafficking.

Nathan Fox is a former Marine and Las Vegas vice cop working at the Onyx Casino as the Head of Security.  But that isn't his only job.  He is also part of the Reliance Group.  The Reliance Group is a very discreet and covert group that took assignments that other agencies refused to take.  But Nathan's next job hits a little close to home: looking for a 16 year old runaway that also gained the attention of an prominent older man.  But before he goes undercover to find the runaway teen, Nathan goes to a speed dating event as a favor for a friend. Just as Nathan is thinking his night can't be any worse, he sees Nicole Hutton.

Nicole is at the speed dating event to write an article for her paper.  Nicole is growing restless with these "puff" pieces her editor keeps giving her.  She wants to write about things that matter.  After coming across Nate's TRG information, she decides to do a little undercover work herself into the missing teen.  

And when Nate discovers that the man they are after has set his sights on Nicole, he will do anything to protect the woman that has wormed his way into the one place he didn't think would happen again: His heart.

I do want to mention that Game of Chance is a RE-RELEASE of Into The Night by Janelle Denison.
