Cade Walker is like no man I’ve ever met before. He’s cynical, brooding, mysterious and, most of all, damaged. He’s a man who declares he’s broken, and one who detests the two very things I live for most: God and love. Yet, I’ve still fallen completely in love with him because I also see the good, something that no one else ever has. I see a man who is strong, silent, honorable and beautiful. He’s a man who is now scarred just as badly on the outside of his body as he is on the inside, all because of me. One who endured severe torture in order to save me from what would be the worst thing I will ever experience in my entire life. He is a man I call my dark angel, one who will have my heart until the end of time, even if I
can never have his.
At fifteen years old I lost the only person that ever mattered to me, and the day I lost my little sister in the most vile way was the exact moment I stopped living and only existed. That’s until ten years later, when I walked into an open field in Iraq to hear the most incredible voice I would ever hear in my life. One that rooted me to my spot, and ended up belonging to the most beautiful woman in the world. The only woman to ever make me feel something again, something that I thought was dead inside of me. And no matter how badly I wanted to keep her, I knew I couldn’t. Not with what I have lurking inside of me. It’s something I’ve always kept hidden. That is, until the day I unleashed it on the people who dared to hurt her. It was the one thing that gave me the strength to save us, but it was also the one thing that would remind me of why I could never have her.
Now two years later, the one girl I never thought I would ever see again, the one I have spent my days and nights craving like an addict, walks back into my life unexpectedly, giving us both the shock of our lives. And when the time comes that she needs me again, I no longer resist. Before I know it, I’m pulled into a life I thought I could never have, one that scares the shit out of me but it’s one I’m realizing I want. There is just one problem. One very big problem… She lives for the very thing I loathe, and the one thing that killed my sister… God.
Here it is. The most anticipated book of the Men Of Honor Series, the one you have all been waiting for: Cade and Faith’s story. Resisting Temptation is Book Three in the Men Of Honor Series. It is an HEA with no cliffhanger.
WARNING: This book deals with mature subject matter such as coarse language, sexual situations, and abuse. It is not suitable for anyone under the age of 18. This is the darkest book yet, and is centered around loss, love and finding oneself. Religion plays a very big part in this book - the good and the bad. If this is a subject you are sensitive about then this might not be the book for you.
I can’t help but feel fucking proud for being the one to put this smile on her face. “I have one more thing for you.”
“Another present? You really know how to make a girl feel special, Walker. Who knew?”
I grunt and ignore her sass. “It’s not really another present, it’s more giving back something that belongs to you.”
She looks at me perplexed and suddenly I get nervous again. “Sit up just a bit, baby.” I help raise her to her knees slightly then reach into my pocket and pull out something I’ve kept with me for a long time and never parted with.
“Hold out your hand.” I tell her gently as she sits back down on my stomach.
When she does what I ask I lay the delicate chain in her hand. She sucks in a sharp breath as she stares at the anklet with the music note she left for me two years ago.
I wait for her to say something and try to gauge her reaction but her expression shows nothing except shock. “I can’t believe you have this.”
I clear my throat. “Our belongings were sent to us while we were in the rehabilitation center. I’ve been waiting for the right time to give it back to you.”
I’m hoping she isn’t mad I didn’t give it back sooner, but I wasn’t ready to part with it. When she doesn’t say anything I take the anklet then lean up slightly and hook it around her slender ankle.
She stares down at it for a minute before swinging her, wet, emotional eyes up to mine. “I gave this to you so you would have something to remember me by.”
I reach up and cup the side of her face. “I never needed anything to remember you by, Red. I would have never forgotten you.”
A small sob escapes her just before she leans down and rests her forehead on mine, our lips only a breath away from one another, temping me to take a taste. I’m just about to when she says, “I love you.”
I tense without meaning to, unable to stop myself. There are those three fucking words, again, that I have been trying not to think about since she said them the other night. It has fucking panic gripping my chest like a tight vice, making it difficult to take in a breath. I’veonly ever had one person say those words to me, and it was a little girl who didn’t know any better.
“You don’t believe me.”
The sad note to her voice makes me feel like shit. “It’s not that…”
“Then what? You can’t possibly still think love doesn’t exist. Look at Jaxson and Sawyer.”
I stare into her wet, emerald eyes, seeing a burning need for answers, and before I can stop myself I tell her the truth. I tell her my biggest fear. “It’s not that I don’t believe you, it’s I’m wondering when you’re going to wake up and realize I’m not worthy of it.”
She sucks in a sharp breath and I feel more of her tears hit my face, but I don’t break my gaze from hers.
“Never,” she whispers sadly.
“All love comes with conditions. Why do you think so many people divorce?”
“Not mine. I love unconditionally, and I think you’re perfect, all of you.”
“There is nothing close to fucking perfect about me, Red. You have to know that by now.”
“That’s just it. I see every single one of your flaws, and I value them as much as I value your strengths. You are perfect to me in every way. The good,” she presses a soft kiss to my lips, “the bad,” she gives me another one, “and… I was going to say ugly but there is nothing ugly about you, Cade Walker,” she adds with a smile.

***** Five Stars-
I had an Idea I'd be needing tissues thru this book, but I didn't know id be using them so soon!! Cade and Faith's story broke my heart, what they both went thru was a horrible thing. The healing process is hard, but I loved how KC added it all together, the feelings were so raw, so there, I fell in love with Cade, I think I love him more than Jaxson (shh.. Don't tell him that) KC Lynn does it again, she wrote a book in which I was submerged from the moment I started reading. Can't wait for more.
