An emotional and inspirational family drama in the middle of an intense hunt for revenge from a savage culprit who likes to hang back and makes others deliver his evil intentions, malice, and torture.
I have been reading Regan Black's stories for a few years now, and I can honestly say, there's not a one that I have not liked but enjoyed them all immensely. The stories have passion, tension, and deep emotions. The characters have this deep maturity, wisdom, honor, and sense of right and wrong that stands out within the hundreds of romance novels I have read. To say that A Soldier's Honor is most likely my favorite book of hers so far gives you now a better sense how much I actually enjoyed this story.
I loved the characters, respected the tough choices they had to make, the sacrifices they had made, and how despite all, they managed to hold on to kindness, gentleness, amicability and loving feels towards each other, and it just made me appreciate them so much more.
The way Major Matt Riley and his ex, Bethany Trent handle the whole situation, of their past, of their present challenges, of their son, of the danger they are facing, and the family drama that is developing --- It is a roll-a-coaster of emotions, there is more angst than I expected, the feels going from elation to resentment to fear and then to the real danger to their lives and future. It is a story that I didn't want to put down and wanted to linger within, in that enchanted world that the author had created.
The families, their interactions, the drama between Matt and Bethany, their past, how they handled the secret baby in a refreshingly different way, it is all heartfelt with such raw beauty and realistic feel that I wanted to inhale the tale while savoring each moment.
With everyone's personal and family life imbalanced with the secrets coming out, the constant danger on the edge of the reality, and how the reader is more aware of it than the characters cause the evil, revengeful mastermind has his own voice and point of view, gives the already amazing story another dimension that just blew me away.
I loved every moment and absolutely everything about this book, what a way to end the year's reading with an intense, explosive way, and can't wait to see where the author will take us with this new intriguing and emotional series where danger will come up, close, and personal for the Riley family.
