Blurb: Four men fighting against their pasts…and for each other.
Men of Honor, Book 6
Several years after washing up on a beach in South Africa with absolutely no memory—not even his name—Lucky would rather not remember his past. Based on the number of scars on his body, it couldn’t have been anything good.
Then a man claiming to be his former Navy SEAL teammate walks into the bar and insists that Lucky’s real name is Josiah Joshua Kent. Turns out he’s been listed as KIA, and since he’s not dead, he’s now considered a deserter.
Discovering Josh is alive throws Rex, and his relationship with Sawyer, into a tailspin. Rex can finally lay to rest the nightmares of the night he couldn’t save his teammate. And Sawyer is faced with his worst nightmare—a relationship threatened by a very real ghost from the past.
As Josh begins to piece his memories back together, another man with a shadowy connection to his past—and maybe his heart—holds the key that could free him. Or send him to a traitor’s fate.
Warning: Contains rough language, rougher sex and warriors who fall hard for one another.
This book had the perfect recipe for success, at least for me. Everything I love was here, it felt written for me.
When I picked it up to read, I was concerned that I was going to miss something with it being book 6 in the series, but it wasn’t difficult to pick up on the characters. If this is the quality of writing and storytelling we can expect from SE Jakes I must get all the books in the series as soon as possible.
These two men were strong, masculine, sexy and very much your typical alpha male. From the beginning there is this chemistry, this powerful sexual tension between the two, it was within minutes of knowing each other that Lucky ended up pinned to a wall by Dash.
Lucky has no memory of his life before showing up almost dead on the shore in South Africa. A family took him in, cared for him and offer him a home. But something has been always in the back of his mind, and the random appearance of the SEAL calling him “Josh” starts putting those thoughts towards the front of his mind.
Turns out Josh was part of a rescue mission, his team members thought him dead. He is not dead, but he was no memories of his previous life at all.
Josh, a decorated SEAL, was also in a relationship with one of his team mates, Rex.
Josh is brought back to US, as he is considered a traitor until proven otherwise, and we start the journey into putting together Josh’s past with Lucky’s present. One journey that is full of confusion, doubts, friendships restored, relationship put to test.
Rex, has moved on, and finding that his Josh was not dead but just missing puts a dark cloud over his relationship with Sawyer. Reading about the two was really interesting, because it was not just about their feelings, but it was about this part of Rex that he can only explore with Sawyer. And Sawyer’s need for submission that he is just now discovering.
Bound to Break has it all. Mystery, you really don’t know who to trust. Kick ass female secondary characters with Dash’s sister. Alpha leading males, all of them. Rough hard sex! I know you are all up for it ;). There is also romance and intimacy, but is not too sweet, which works perfect for these men.
This one is going into my favorites of 2013 without a doubt.
