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?
WOW! What are the first things that come to mind after reading Man of Honor by Sarah O'Rourke? Heart felt, emotional, uplifting, suspenseful, AMAZING! I have read other books in the series, not all of them, and not in order (my fault because I purchased them out of order) but what I love so much is that even though this is part of a series, you can read this book as a stand alone. There is enough back story and information given that the reader will not feel lost, they will understand the history of Zeke and Honor.
The horrors that Honor had lived with are heart breaking. She has more strength within herself than she knows. The way that she has handled all of the trauma that she has faced made her story that much sweeter when she faced the demons of the past and started to heal and move on with her life.
And Zeke! OMG! I think I am in love. Zeke blames himself for not protecting Honor when she needed it most, but from that point on, he has never left her side. He has been there always, loving her, supporting her, protecting her. It is a testament to the depth of his love for Honor and the man that he is that he never, not once gave up on her, never gave up on the dream that they were meant to be together, and in the end when I read the lines "And when Zeke was finally given permission to kiss his bride, he wasn't ashamed of the twin tears that rolled down his cheeks as he pulled back Honor's veil. 'You're finally mine. Always only ever mine,' he whispered as his lips descended to cover hers in the sweetest kiss he'd ever experienced in his life.", I was balling like a baby.
Amazing seems like such a small word to describe just how wonderful this book really is. I have to say that I really look forward to the next book, because it looks like Zeke's big brother Ice might just be the next to fall. I give Man of Honor by Sarah O'Rourke 5 smashing stars!
