Title: Honor Avenged (HORNET #6)
Author: Tonya Burrows
Stars: 3 1\2
This was present as a stand alone in a series but I will have to say I think I would have connected better with the characters if I had read the previous books.
The book doesn't stand out in a world of Military Romance books in fact it fades into the masses and doesn't inspire readers to search out the others in the series. While the author tries hard to make readers connect with the characters if feel forced with lots of internal dialog that can slow down books.
I will give the author credit for tacking some difficult subject matter but at the same times fades into the background as well.
Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for a copy of Tonya Burrows Honor Avenged
Leah Giancarelli makes balancing her new role as a single mom look easy, but she’d have crumbled if not for her late husband’s best friend, Marcus. She has her issues with HORNET, an elite hostage rescue team—after all, Danny would still be alive if he’d never accompanied them on their last mission—but Marcus has always been by her side, a strong shoulder to lean on…
Until, after one impulsive kiss, he’s so much more.
Eaten alive by guilt, Marcus takes off, leaving both HORNET and Leah behind. Alone is easier. Safer. Because his feelings for Leah are all kinds of wrong, the worst kind of betrayal, and he can’t trust himself not to act on them.
But Danny’s death was only the beginning. Whoever hired the hitman is looking for something, and they think Leah knows where it is...
