This bad boy is about to get played…

After getting her heart broken by a player again, Whitney Porter is done with men. She's focusing on her future career and her first assignment at the college newspaper: Posing as a sports writer for an exposé on the extra perks jocks receive. But Hudson Decker, the bad boy of the hockey team, is about to test her resolve. To keep herself from breaking her no-sex rule with the temptingly tattooed athlete, she decides to use him for a side project: Anatomy of a Player, to help Whitney—and women everywhere—spot a player, learn what makes him tick, and how to avoid falling for one.

With his life spiraling out of control, Hudson Decker's looking for a distraction. When his teammates bet him that he can't land the gorgeous but prickly new reporter, he accepts the challenge, boasting he'll have her in bed by the end of the semester. But Whitney is so much more than Hudson expected, and soon enough, he's in too deep. The last thing he needs is another complication, but staying away isn't an option. One thing's for certain: this girl totally throws him off his game.

I really enjoyed this book. I thought it had a great cast of characters and I loved seeing the two MC’s of the first book.
While this book was very predictable, it really didn’t take away anything for me.
Whitney and Hudson don’t see eye to eye at first. Hudson is just like the guys that Whiney would usually date and there that causes a few problems. But, as time goes on so does their attraction to each other. As they spend more time together, their attraction grows. But one stupid bet could cause Hudson everything that he’s wanted.
I can’t honestly think of anything bad about this book. I really enjoyed the characters, the plot, and the romance. I’m really excited for the next book in this series.
If you like sassy heroines with very impressive fashion sense and an alpha hockey player that usually get what they want then this book would be a great read.

Release Day Blitz --> An Act of Salvation (Acts of Honor, #2) by K.C. Lynn

Title: An Act of Salvation (Acts of Honor Series #2)
Author: KC Lynn
Release Date: January 27 2016

Amazon US  |  Amazon UK  |  Amazon CA  |  

TBR Link: Goodreads

Sometimes two broken pieces make a whole.

He’s the one she’s always loved.

She’s the one he could never have.

A forbidden night of passion resulted in years of heartbreak when he walked away. Now she’s in danger and needs his help. 

Trust doesn’t come easy for FBI Agent Nick Stone, especially when it comes to love, but he’ll risk it all for Katelyn Slade. 

Including his heart. 

Bullets fly, betrayals are exposed, and the flames from their past ignite.

His protection might be what saves her but in the end she will be his salvation.

This is Book two in the Acts Of Honor series, the spin-off series to Men Of Honor. It’s Nick and Katelyn’s story and is told in dual POV, has an HEA with no cliffhanger and it can be read as a standalone. However, I highly recommend that you read the Men Of Honor series prior, as characters play recurring roles in both series.

5 stars

I loved this book! Nick and Katelyn were so perfect for each other.
It wouldn’t be a KC book if there weren’t any dirty talking alphas and suspense.
There is just enough suspense and romance in this book. Katelyn and Nick haven’t had an easy life. Katelyn more so than Nick.
At the end of Anna’s book you know that Kolan gets accused of some pretty awful things. Well, Katelyn, being the great sister that she is needs some help to try to get Kolan’s name cleared. But, the whole gang thinks that Kolan is guilty so the only person that she has left is…Nick.
After 7 years, Nick is still in love with Katelyn. So when she calls he goes running.
While trying to solve this case, Katelyn gets mixed up in the mess, so it’s up to Nick to protect her. But while together can they stay apart or do they give into the feelings that had buried for seven years?
Honestly, this is probably my favorite KC book to date. I just loved everything about it. I had a smile on my face the whole time I was reading it.
I loved that we got to see some of the old characters from her other books and we also got introduced to a few new characters as well. And I think one of the main things that tract me to KC’s books is how well she writes about family, her characters, and the suspense. Whether their related by blood or not they always have a strong bond. And with all of KC’s books they are all family and they keep adding to it. Her characters are always the best. She usually has them figured out well. And I loved suspense in my books that I read. It’s my favorite genre to read so…
Overall, I absolutely loved this book. I loved Nick and Katelyn. KC sure knows how to write Dirty talking alpha male with a huge ole heart. And of course she writes kickass female characters to go with her alphas. Suspense, romance, dirty talking alpha, car chases…what more could you want…

He begins moving inside of me with slow, exquisite strokes, his eyes never leaving mine. He looks at me in a way I’ve longed to have someone look at me my whole life. Like I matter, like I’m important…like I am more. When it’s time for him to go back this is what I’ll remember. This is what I’ll keep close to me on the nights I ache for him, to remember that someone looked at me like this once. Even if I don’t get it for a lifetime, it’s better than not getting it at all.

Just like the man himself.

Reaching up, I cup his strong, stubbly jaw. He encircles my wrist and kisses the inside of it, right over my tattoo.

No words needed.

As more tears begin to fall he leans down and catches them with his lips. “Feel me, Kate. Feel nothing but me.”

“I do. You’re all I feel.”

“Just us,” he whispers.

“Just us.”
