TBR Link: Goodreads
She’s beautiful yet scarred beyond repair.
He’s powerful and lethal, in and out of the ring.
One act of kindness brought Sophie Parish far more danger than she could have ever imagined. Now she’s on the run, leaving behind her family and the only dream she’s ever had.
Retired EFC fighter Kolan Slade’s life has been one endless battle after another. He has a dark past with an even darker desire—the only one he’s ever known.
Until he meets Sophie.
Intrigued by her raw beauty and the secrets she’s trying to hide, Kolan craves to know who she is and what she’s running from.
Protecting her becomes his obsession and he’ll sacrifice it all to save her. But in the end her love will have him questioning himself and everything he thought he knew.
“His steps are stiff and akward but it doesn’t matter. I’m pretty sure I’ve never loved dancing with another person so much in my life as I do right now.”
“I will take what I want and what I want is Kolan. The man who taught me how to fight. Who reminded me of the person I am. Who makes me feel beautiful–scars and all. the one who has captured my heart like no other ever has.”
K.C. Lynn has managed to do it again. She has once again provided me with a powerful, and moving love story. A story that is told with so much heart and so much passion. A story that I will be unable to forget….
Now, as a fan of the Acts of Honor Series, I have been dying to get my hands on Kolan and Sophie’s story. There was just something about Kolan. His story begging to be told. But, as much as I’ve been dying to get my hands on Kolan’s story, it’s really Sophie’s part of the story that blew me away.
An Act of Obsession is fast paced and starts off with one heck of a bang. This is where we first meet Sophie and I have to tell you, her story is shocking. It will shock and surprise you. It will have you blowing through the pages to find out what happens to her. Meeting Kolan was the best thing to ever have happen to her. While his strength and intensity scared most people away, it only pulled Sophie in. Being around Kolan, made her feel safe for the first time in many years. The connection they have is instant and intense. They are both broken in different ways and hiding from their pasts. But, if they can just move past all of that, they will discover that what they share is worth fighting for. A love like theirs is worth all the pain and heartache that they’ve experienced.
An Act of Obsession was an amazing read, from start to finish. It pulled me in from the very beginning and captured my heart. I fell in love with Sophie and Kolan right away. My heart ached for everything that Sophie had been through and I couldn’t help but hope and pray that she could find some happiness and peace. Sophie’s story is not an easy one. It is intense and raw, at times it is shocking and heartbreaking. And Kolan….He was so, so misunderstood. People just saw him as this intense, broody fighter. They never really took the chance to know the real him. And deep down, he is the best kind of guy. The guy you would want in your corner. The guy who would love fiercely and stop at nothing to protect those he loves. Together, they are an unbeatable force.
There is not much else that I can say about An Act of Honor, other than I loved this book. If you are a lover of K.C. Lynn’s books like I am then you know you are getting an amazing read. You are getting a book that is well written and that comes from the heart. You are getting a book that is intense, but shows you the power and strength of love, friendship and family. You are getting a book where the man is 110% alpha male. Sure he is possessive and dominate, but he loves with all of his heart and treats his woman like gold. It will give you the opportunity to catch up with old friends and fall in love with new ones. And most of all, you are given a book that will take you on the most incredible journey. A journey that is unforgettable and will have you thinking of it long after the end. K.C. Lynn has exceeded my expectations with this book and I for one can not wait to see what she’s got up her sleeves next!

Reaching my SUV, I place her feet on the ground and cage her against the passenger door, bracing both my hands on either side of her head. “And what about you, Lia?” I ask, dipping my head in close to hers. “Hmm? You know my secrets. What about yours?”
She might not know all of mine but she knows enough.
“What is it you want to know?” she asks, a slight tremble in her voice.
“I want to know who you are and where you came from. But more than anything, I want to know what you’re hiding under that scarf.”
The stark pain that enters her eyes strikes me to my fucking core. “Trust me, you don’t want to see what’s under there. I can’t even bear to look at it myself.”
“Nothing scares me.”
It’s a complete lie. She scares the hell out of me.
A heavy silence descends upon us, her pretty eyes wide and fearful.
“What are you so afraid of?” I ask.
Her breath hitches, emotion shining bright in her gaze. “Everything.”
There’s so much despair in that one word that I want to fucking kill whoever put it there. Unable to resist, I gently drop my forehead on hers, my jaw locking as I restrain myself from doing what I really want to do.
“I’m going to respect your privacy…for now. But one day, you’re going to tell me who made you so afraid. And if they’re still breathing—they won’t be for much longer.”
Her eyes fall closed, lip trembling as she tries to shield her pain from me. “Some secrets, Kolan, are best left unknown.”
“Not between us. The day will come when there will be no more secrets between us.”
Her eyes open, locking with mine, but she remains silent. I press my lips to her forehead then reach for the door handle. “Come on. Let’s go home.”
