Honor’s Refuge is book 4 in the Love & Honor series by Hallee Bridgeman. This is an outstanding series that kept me waiting for the next book in the series and this story did not disappoint. I enjoyed catching up with the former Special Forces A-Team members and enjoyed how they kept in touch and cared about each other. The closeness of the team is very evident even after they left the team. It was enjoyable to see how the training they received in the military carried over into their life after leaving the military.
I enjoyed the character of Melissa and how her childhood affected what she did as an adult. It was heart warming to see how she used her training and experience to help her sister get out of the life she was forced into.
I voluntarily received a complimentary ARC copy of this book from Revell Publishing through LibraryThing, this is my honest review.
About the Book
When she was just five years old, Melissa Braxton watched her father take her mother’s life. Separated from her sister, Lola, at that time, Melissa grew up with a strong desire to help those stuck in abusive relationships. It’s why she became a family therapist and opened a domestic abuse shelter.
After losing a leg to a gunshot wound in the line of duty, Phil Osbourne has felt like a man without a purpose–until he hears Melissa’s story and decides to use his Special Forces contacts to track down her missing sister. He knows what he discovers will break Melissa’s heart. What he doesn’t realize is that helping the women reunite will bring the cartel down on them like the Category 5 hurricane striking Miami.
Bruised yet not quite broken, Melissa and Phil battle the storm and the cartel, calling on strength they didn’t know they had to escape death, save the innocent, and–just maybe–find healing in each other’s arms.
