She’s the light from his past.

He’s the one her heart has always longed for. 

Trained by the best, Christopher Walker has fought hard for his country and even harder to forget the only girl he’s ever loved. He spent countless nights submerged in death and destruction only to find himself clinging to the memories of her when the darkness crept in. 

When her life is threatened, Christopher will stop at nothing to protect her. Even if it means having to confront his past.

Alissa Malone never thought she would find herself face-to-face again with the only boy she’s ever loved. But she soon realizes Christopher is not the same man he once was. 

His touch is still electrifying—his voice still earth shattering. But there’s a darkness about him that wasn’t there before. A pain he harbors so deep that she can feel it all the way to her soul. 

One fateful moment destroyed his very existence, and only one person will be able to make him realize that what he considers an act of dishonor was truly an act of courage.


This is Book Four in the Acts Of Honor series, the spin-off series to Men Of Honor. It is not necessary to read all of the other books in the series. However, I do highly recommend that you at least read Resisting Temptation, the third book in the Men of Honor series, since this is where these Characters story began.


Star Rating: 5 stars

Damn it how am I going to be able to do this review...

okay deep breath, here we go.

You know that feeling you get when something affects you so deep inside your soul that it just leaks from the spaces that give you the ability to see it. I experienced so much with this book and then some.

I knew deep down this book would come to mean so much to me just like Resisting Temptation has when we meet Christopher and Ruthie. I am over the moon with emotions right now, I may have tears running down my face as I do this review but I don't wipe them because this book...this book is an eqaul to Resisting Temptation and that book will always affect me deep.

Christopher Walker is plagued by something dark and to him unforgivable. He harbors it deep down and doesn't want anyone to know or see the hurt he caused, afraid they will hate him in the end because of it.

Alissa Malone is doing what she loves, helping others except what she doesn't expect to find while doing it is herself in danger and the one person she could never forget who slides back into her life only to realize he isn't who he used to be. What has him so guarded and hurt? Bound to figure it out she tries and tries until she is threatened again then only to go through hurt again.

"Whatever it is that you think you've done. No matter what it is...I forgive you."

The struggles our soldiers face is very real especially when they come home, KC you have brought insight into what the burdens our men and women face when they come home and it becomes too much, sometimes it doesn't always end happy. Our soldiers are bypassed and it hurts to know but it's the truth, I wish there were a place like Anna's for our vets to go to because it would make things that much better for our soldiers in and put of duty.

"For some of us there is no redemption. No...absolution."

I can recall all the times I have cried while reading a book to the point that I had to stop because of the emotion, I am proud to say that they all have been from KC Lynn aside from 2 times. When an author can express emotion through words and pull that leaky stuff out you know you found a great amazing one. Hang onto em.

"God gives the toughest battles to the strongest soldiers, and both of them belong to me."

There is one chapter specifically in this book where I was shaking my head and saying no all while tears flowed down my face. I was so distraught I almost stopped reading because I didn't want to go any further but I had to, I couldn't stop. Pure emotion flowed through the words and conveyed what was happening so much it was overwhelming.

"I know what it's like to love someone who doesn't love himself, I also know what it's like to live with the memories or war. It's a dark place and changes a person forever. But love can overcome hate and light will always prevail over darkness"

An Act of Courage has its place on my list of books that are embedded in my soul and that's hard to accomplish but KC has done it again. I have experienced some of what Alissa goes through with Christopher and it hurts more than anything but love truly can help reach the darkest parts of someone who is trapped there and fighting to be in the light.

You will cry, you will smile and be happy but most of all it will break you, shatter your heart but in the end it will slowly come back together as it should because no matter what there is always a crack in every ones heart.

I highly highly without a doubt recommend this book but you also should read Resisting Temptation first to get the whole story.

Bravo KC! You never should've doubted yourself or been scared, you hit it out of the park and then some with this one.

One minute I’m drumming to a beat I could never play on my own then the next I’m flipped around to face him, his fingers digging into my hips possessively. I gasp, my breath racing as I stare back at him.

Something passes between us.

A decision.

A choice.

No more fighting this.

“Fuck complicated.” His earlier words fall past his lips then our mouths become one.

The connection slams into me, sending my heart reeling. Our tongues duel in a beautiful battle, the sound of our passion filling the air as our past ignites.

A growl erupts from him, vibrating against my lips. “You taste as good as I remember.”

I want to tell him the same thing but can’t. All I can think about is his mouth never leaving mine, not even for a second, or it might kill me.

At this moment, I’m not even sure how I survived so long without it—without him.

He slides the stool closer to the drum set before his hand moves between us and presses on my chest. I seize the opportunity to suck in air and let him guide me to my back, my shoulders resting against the musical cylinders.

His hands move to mine and it’s then I realize I still have the drumsticks gripped tightly in my fists. With a sexy smirk, he pries them both from me, throwing one on the floor but keeps hold of the other.

His dark eyes never sever from mine as he unbuttons the shirt I’m wearing, exposing me to his stare. The cool air whispers over my heated flesh, my nipples straining for his touch.

                “So fucking pretty.” The wild lust in his eyes triggers an intense desire in me.

                 I bite my lip to keep from moaning but all silent caution is thrown out the window the moment he takes the stick and brushes the tip of it over one aching bud.

                Another gasp parts my lips, a fiery whimper purging from me at the cool, hard feel. My back arches, the small touch igniting an inferno in my body.

                “Remember the things I used to do to your body, Alissa? How wet you would get when you’d hear me sing?” he murmurs, dragging the smooth wood down my tummy. “You’d beg me to take your ache away. Remember?”

                “Yes. Do you?” I ask. I’m dying to know. Has he thought of me as much as I have him?

                “Yeah, baby. There isn’t a moment of our time together that I’ve ever forgotten.”

                His admission has my throat burning and heart aching. Aching at the loss of him, of what we could have had.

                What we did have.

                “The good,” he whispers. “The bad.” He slips the stick in my panties. “And the fucking beautiful.”

                “Oh, god, Christopher.” His name spills past my lips on a cry of pleasure as he glides the stick through my wet flesh, slowly working it against my swollen clit.

                He plays my body like he plays every instrument. With skilled perfection and grace. Keeping his momentum, he leans down just enough to suck a hard nipple into his mouth. His teeth graze it with a pressure that borders on a beautiful pain and it’s enough to send me over the edge.

                Blissful cries rip from my throat as I’m swept up into an intense storm of pleasure.

                “Good girl, scream for me, Alissa. Let me have your pleasure because next it’s going to be my cock working this hot little pussy.”
