Publisher’s Description: Leah Giancarelli makes balancing her new role as a single mom look easy, but she’d have crumbled if not for her late husband’s best friend, Marcus. She has her issues with HORNET, an elite hostage rescue team—after all, Danny would still be alive if he’d never accompanied them on their last mission—but Marcus has always been by her side, a strong shoulder to lean on…

Until, after one impulsive kiss, he’s so much more.

Eaten alive by guilt, Marcus takes off, leaving both HORNET and Leah behind. Alone is easier. Safer. Because his feelings for Leah are all kinds of wrong, the worst kind of betrayal, and he can’t trust himself not to act on them.

But Danny’s death was only the beginning. Whoever hired the hitman is looking for something, and they think Leah knows where it is…

Each book in the HORNET series is STANDALONE:
* SEAL of Honor
* Honor Reclaimed
* Broken Honor
* Code of Honor
* Reckless Honor
* Honor Avenged

Nervous Nellie’s nervousness necessitates knowledge of the novel. In other words …SPOILERS. *BEWARE*

Nervous Nellie says…

This book is fairly clean for a military romance.  It’s actually more adventure than porn and that’s the way I like them.  There is some graphic scenes of torture and death.  There are some scenes with the less fortunate people that have to live through hell just to get through a day.  There is swearing but there is also a good ending.

I have to say that I really enjoyed this book.  I felt deeply for the couple in this book.  They had a pretty hard time of it, but when a husband and friend dies unexpectedly, you will have a more than tough time.

Marcus was supposed to watch over Leah and the kids for his best friend Danny.  Supposed to.  He couldn’t stand up to his grief and work through it in order to be a help to anyone.  He was a sad state of affairs, running from every feeling he had and hiding them from himself.  Leah was alone and fighting to stay afloat.  Fighting and fighting to stay afloat, because that’s what moms do.

The adventure in this book was pretty spectacular.  The premise was a secret investigation that Danny was handling and the wrong people had control over the situation and killed him.  The bad guys were really, really bad guys and decided to come after Leah because she *might* know something.  Leah doesn’t know who to trust and those that she’s supposed to be able to trust, can she?  It was a good story.
