Sheriff Zeke Monroe loves one woman...Honor McKinnon. He is willing to stake his entire future on protecting her...no matter what the cost. Honor McKinnon knows she is broken. Her body and soul had been shattered by a violent attack years ago, and no one...not her sisters or anyone else in the tiny town of Paradise, especially the Sheriff...can change that. Rather than dealing with her wounds, she chooses to protect herself from any further damage, even if that means that she avoids the one chance at love. But Zeke is determined to break down
Honor’s walls...and to find the persons responsible for hurting her and make them suffer. He’s already killed for her once...and is willing to do it again if it means she'll know safety and happiness. What happens when Zeke refuses to allow Honor to ignore her past? Will Zeke’s love be passionate enough to break down her barriers? And can Zeke save
Honor when her life is in danger once again?

Man of Honor is the awaited story of Zeke and Honor. As you know reading the series that Honor at the age of 16 had suffered from being kidnapped, raped and left for dead. This was hard on all of them. My heart hurt to read about it in the previous books but that was just a glimpse because now we get the details and the agony that she endured. My heart literally broke into a million pieces to witness what she had to go through and that she still suffers from it. Zeke is not only the town sheriff but he has loved Honor for what seems like forever and even though it has been 8 years, he suffers from guilt as his action set this unfortunate event into motion. It’s unwarranted. Trust me. You feel for the guy. He is still trying to find the last 2 remaining assailants while trying to break down Honor’s heavily guarded heart.
“Love is patient, Kitten. It wont be either rushed or ignored. I’ve always known that. Known that this bond between us had to be carefully nurtured…painstakingly built. I’ve always understood that t would take blood, sweat and tears..that it would be difficult for both of us. But love ENDURES. It grows. It deepens. and you cant tell me that hasnt happened for us. Sure, its challenging, and there are going to be days where we ask if it’s worth the pain. But the answer is yes. We ARE worth all the tough days and lonely night. We are worth fighting for.”
This story pulled me in from the get go and it was hard to put down while everyday life was running around me, I wanted to stay in my own Paradise! These characters have so much depth and have a likability that I enjoy in a story. The dynamic between the characters, secondary included bring so much to the story, you cannot help but immerse yourself into the story wishing you were apart of it.
This story gave me all the feels. I would definitely recommend this story, heck, the series to all my book friends. They would certainly enjoy being in Paradise!
