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.
Review by: Sam
I just can't even...where on earth am I supposed to start...how do I begin to describe the way that this book made me feel?
An Act of Salvation is the journey of Katelyn Slade and Nick Stone. From the very beginning you are pulled into something so raw, so real and heartfelt. Katelyn has known since she was a little girl that, Nick, has always been the one. But Nick is a little older, Nick is also her brother's best friend.
Nick wants to make something of himself, his life. Nick is also not ignorant to what he feels, feels what he probably shouldn't. He has spent years protecting his best friends younger sister, but when does caring become MORE?
Katelyn is simply, BEAUTIFUL. I loved that we get a journey with her character. Being able to see her from the sweet little girl, who despite the situations she is pushed through, still has it in her to protect. This then brings us to the HILARIOUS and sassy high school senior, followed on beautifully to becoming a successful woman and so much MORE.
Nick Stone, the man that dreams are made of. My heart is literally bursting from the things that he made me feel. I swooned, I wanted to kick his face in, I laughed, his inner monologue is GENIUS and don't even get me started on the sexiness the man brings. HOLY FREAKING... I am sporting one gigantic lady boner for this man and I couldn't be happier about it. He is alpha through to the bone.
I really do not want to spoil anything about this book. It is far too beautiful and deserves to be experienced by every reader. The whirlwind of emotions, heartfelt scenes and every single character makes you feel something, whether that is the good, the bad or the heart bursting emotion is something you need to feel for yourself.
K.C. Lynn is THE author who slings THE feels. She also writes THE sexiest alpha men to grace the book world, THE most inspiring female characters who take their places deep in your heart, but overall, her writing falls straight through to your soul and sets up camp along with every book she writes. This author isn't afraid to touch on sensitive subjects, it makes what she writes, REAL and this is why I would drop everything to read her latest release. This story is without a doubt one of my favourites K.C. Lynn has written and I know, I will return to this outstanding story, time and time again.
An Act of Salvation is simply, breathtaking.
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.
