Review & Giveaway ~ BROKEN HONOR by Tonya Burrows


Broken Honor (HORNET, #3)
by: Tonya Burrows
Series: HORNET
Genre: Contemporary Romantic Suspense
Release Date: February 24, 2015
Source: Publisher ~ Entangled: Select

Fans of Kaylea Cross, Cristin Harber, and Lynn Rae Harris will enjoy the dark, emotional and sexy third book in the Hornet series by Tonya Burrows.

 Ice-cold and unbreakable, Travis Quinn is the HORNET team's hard-ass. No weaknesses. Except, of course, for the accident that not only destroyed his career as a Navy SEAL, but left terrifying blanks in his memory. But Travis remembers everything about Mara Escareno--the curve of her lips, the feel of her body...and how he walked out on her suddenly six weeks ago.

Mara could never resist the dangerously sexy Travis, which is probably how she ended up pregnant and disowned by her family. But before Travis can fully process the news, Mara is kidnapped by his enemies and plunged into the violent, merciless world of human trafficking. They want Travis--and the information locked within his damaged memory--no matter the cost. And now Travis's enemies have discovered his only weakness...Mara.

REVIEW
Tonya Burrows has scored the hat-trick with the third book in her Hornet series.  Broken Honor was another stellar read and whilst it brought less passion than its predecessors, it was filled with action, drama, angst and emotion.  I have waited patiently for Quinn and he was worth it.

"He needs you both of you if he has any hope of making it."

Injured in a car accident with Gabe that ended his military career, Quinn has been left with a life-altering head injury (if you've read the first two books, Seal of Honor and Honor Reclaimed, they touched on this).  The career that saved him after he was dealt blow after blow growing up.  Whilst he's not quite as broken as Seth, he's not without his vulnerabilities and insecurities, yet he's strong.  And when Mara Escareno is kidnapped by human traffickers, he and the team will move heaven and earth to save her; because not only is she Jesse Warwick's cousin, or Quinn's one/two night stand, but she's the woman carrying his baby.

"Christ, Mara, you gotta know I'd do anything for you."

Quinn was indeed another man to adore, because his inner turmoil and conflicting feelings brought emotion.  He was frustrating yet completely loveable and the fact that the passion between him and Mara took a back seat in the story was absolutely fitting as there was an intimacy that brought the romantic edge.  Mara was easy to like, with a strength, temerity and determination; she wants Quinn but not if he can't accept his responsibilities. And with the banter from the guys as well as the more serious moments between them lifting it exactly when needed, the story flowed, was paced well and brought twists I couldn't have anticipated.

"Right there is your family.  Yeah it's crazy and dysfunctional and infuriatin' as hell, but...that's how families are."

And with plenty of the Hornet men remaining single, I can't wait to see who's next (although the path to Jesse's romance does appear to have been paved very nicely).
