Home is where his heart is…once he recognizes what’s in his heart.
Southern Honor, Book 1
Broken in body, mind and spirit after a botched mission in Kuwait, elite Special Forces operative Jack Dresden returns to Devotion, Georgia, both dreading and longing to face his past. He left town on the receiving end of a wicked right hook thrown by the only person who ever made him feel he was right where he belonged.
Dillon Bluff was never good at pretending. Coming out right after high school, it hasn’t been easy dealing with the stigma of being gay in a small, Southern town. When he stumbles across Jack in the throes of a panic attack, one touch reignites the smoldering, hidden torch he’s always carried for his former best friend.
Jack knows he’s messed up, and the last thing he wants to do is hurt Dillon again. But Dillon is determined to take control and show Jack’s heart the way back home.
Warning: Contains a sexy, scarred Delta Force hero with the hots for his tattooed photojournalist prone-to-skinny-dipping ex-best friend. Threats of creative rope use and plenty of manly loving may leave the reader craving a cigarette—and a man in uniform.
**I received this book free for review from the author through the DBML (Don't Buy My Love) program in the M/M romance group on Goodreads.**
I was super psyched to read this book just based on the blurb alone. There was only one on page sex scene which was good, but I thought that there would be more based on the blurb/warning. I really enjoyed the premise and the two sexy men.
Jack is damaged when he returns home. He hasn't been honest with hardly anyone in his life and he is hurting now way more than he lets on and it isn't just physical pain. Dillon hid his feelings for his best friend and even disguised the reason for the fight they had before Jack left.
This could've been so much more than what it was. While it was still a pretty good friends to lovers story, I feel like I was let down a little. I will read more books by this author in the future and I am really hoping that this book is just the first featuring these characters.
