Honor (Bad Boy Homecoming #4) by Kennedy Layne

My Rating: 4 Stars
Sex Scenes: Yes.
Series: Yes, Bad Boy Homecoming #4.
Subject: The hard choice between love or Honor.
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.

Finished the third book, yes I have been reading them all in weird order, but they still work out great so no problems there! lol

This time we get Derek and Tessa's story and I have to say it really hit home. I have a few friends at the Marine Corps and I can say for a fact that their lives are similar to Derek's. Living to serve your country is an honourable thing, but that leaves them with little space for anything else. They are unable to create real bonds with people because sooner or later they will be moving on to the next post. 

Clearly similar to what Derek's though at first, he figured he could just have this week and then move on, but life is funny like that and he was blindsided by the attraction they both felt. Everything was intensified by her stalker, which brought out the alpha male inside of him and now there was no turning him off.

I think he knew he was done for since their first kiss, but his obligations with his country were weighting on him, he has an extremely hard and life changing choice to make.

Tessa was sweet and hardworking, she has a great life and she is happy, until things start to get weird and scary, and Derek might be just what she needs. 
I'm sure she had no doubts when it came to him, she was sure he was leaving so that might have made her think twice before falling for him, but she was head over hills the second he picked her up for their date.

I loved the fact that this time around the characters knew each other from before but they never really had a relationship, it's a brand new story that starts out of a fate encounter. 

Another two lives changes by the reunion! 

I'm off to the next one!

Get your hands on HONOR now!
