Blog Tour and Book Review: HONOR (Bad Boy Homecoming) by Kennedy Layne

Honor eCover v2 v300dpi


A high school reunion is about to get down and dirty and a whole lot more complicated in this new romantic suspense from USA Today Bestselling Author Kennedy Layne.

Derek Spencer hadn't even bothered to RSVP to his Catfish Creek's high school reunion. He'd been too busy fighting a war in Afghanistan in his capacity as a Marine and wouldn't even be in the States during the event. Unfortunately, one emergency phone call from his mother changed everything.
Tessa Daniels had been voted most likely to do everything back in high school. She somehow didn't think that included acquiring her very own stalker at the relatively young age of twenty-eight. It had stopped being simply annoying after someone broke into her house, invading her privacy. Now, she was actually in fear for her life.

Derek's mother feels terrible that her son has spent almost every waking hour at the hospital, watching over his recovering father. She sets out--and succeeds--in arranging for Derek and Tessa to attend their high school reunion together. Neither one of them expected sparks to fly or memories of long-lost crushes to emerge, but they are not only faced with their newfound passion...they must also confront the person trying to extinguish their chance to rekindle the flames of past desires.

My thoughts: 

We first met Tessa in Dropout (the first book in the Bad Boy Homecoming series, written by Carrie Ann Ryan) and it was so nice to see the busy nurse have some fun and get her HEA - especially once we find out that she recently got out of an abusive relationship AND has a mystery stalker! She rekindles a friendship (and then some) with Derek, who has been serving the country as a Marine since graduation. Neither of them planned on attending their ten year high school reunion, but after some slight manipulation from Derek's mother, they attend the final shebang (a masquerade ball) together and discover that they feel a true connection with each other. Both Derek and Tessa are very likable characters - she's the perfect balance of vulnerable yet strong and confident, while he is deliciously alpha. The 3rd person POV was handled well and I like that Kennedy Layne included quite a bit of technical lingo when dealing with Derek's character. Honor was sweet, suspenseful, and sexy. I give it 3.5 out of 5 wine glasses.
