Review: Fighting Temptation by K. C. Lynn...5 out of 5 rating...

Fighting Temptation (Men of Honor, #1)Fighting Temptation by K.C. Lynn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

K.C. Lynn is a new author to me and she definitely got me with Fighting Temptation!! She hooked me from the start with not only Jaxson and Julia but with Cooper, Kayla, Sawyer and Cade. I cannot wait to start Sawyer and Grace next.

Besides the relationship between Jaxson and Julia what I loved most was the friendship that existed between them and Cooper and Kayla. From the beginning it was always the four of them supporting and caring for each other. They were like a little family unit. I loved watching that develop through the story. I especially loved how Kayla was always messing with Jaxson. She was always right there to put him in his place. lol

Jaxson...He was a tough one. He definitely didn't make it easy on Julia. Just when she would gain a little ground with him he would pull back and they would have to start all over. I get that he thought he wasn't good enough for her and he had no idea how to handle the love that he felt for her or the love she felt in return for him. I love that she never gave up on him even when she probably should have. In the end it was all worth it ~ LOVED the ending ~ so sweet!! Oh and the sex was pretty damn HOT also. ;)

There were some funny moments that had me laughing out loud. The part where Kayla thinks that Cooper is cheating on her and she confronts him with Julia along. Pretty much every part that had Sawyer in it. Loved when he flirted with Julia to get at Jaxson. There were also some heartbreaking parts ~ well...a lot of them actually ~ mainly because of Jaxson!! lol It was hard to read him struggle with what had happened to him while in the Navy. LOVED when he finally went to see Anna. She was so sweet with him and gave him the peace that he so desperately needed.

Such a great story. So glad that I found this book and gave it a chance. Definitely a HUGE fan of K.C. Lynn.

Jaxson is arrogant, angry and aggressive. Yet he’s also beautiful, strong and honorable. I unconditionally and irrevocably love every damaged part of him. And for the boy, who didn’t believe in love, he would always and forever have mine. 
-Julia Sinclair 

Julia was different from anyone I’d ever met. I never thought someone so good and genuine existed until her. The more I saw of her the more I became addicted to her. Every time I was around her she would destroy some of the darkness that lurked inside of me. She made the bad shit in my life seem not so terrible. Then, before I knew it, I had fallen for a girl from another world. -Jaxson Reid 

* * * 

Julia Sinclair is your typical innocent good girl with a heart of gold. At sixteen she moved to Sunset Bay, South Carolina, to live with her Grams after losing her mother to cancer. This is where she met some of the best friends she will ever have and one in particular who will forever hold her heart. 

Jaxson Reid is your typical tattooed bad boy. His past and soul is as dark as the tattoos he bares. He flies through life and girls with no attachments and no emotions... until he met her. 

One fateful night brought Julia and Jaxson together. They formed a friendship and a bond so strong it was unbreakable. Jaxson fought the temptation of anything more with Julia because he knew he would never be good enough for her. When he found his control slipping he left the one girl, who meant everything to him, to join the Navy. 

But one passion-filled night has Jaxson letting go of fighting temptation which will forever alter their relationship. 

A few years later Jaxson comes home to make things right with the one girl who’s ever meant anything to him. Except someone isn’t happy that Jaxson has returned. Someone who thinks Julia is theirs and they will stop at nothing to make sure it stays that way... forever. 

Now Jaxson will not only fight to protect Julia but will also battle the new and existing demons that haunt his soul. 

This is a New Adult Romance and is told from both character’s pov. Due to strong sexual content, coarse language and mature subject matter this book is not suitable for anyone under the age of 18. 

This is Book One in the Men Of Honor series. It can be read as a stand alone and has a HEA. If you like hot tattooed bad boys who are possessive with major alpha personalities then this is the book for you.
