Release Blitz, ARC Book Review and Giveaway--> Hornet #3- Broken Honor by Tonya Burrows


Wounded warrior Travis Quinn, battles against memory loss and time to locate the mother of his unborn child, Mara Escareno, when she is kidnapped and sold into the dark and dangerous world of human trafficking.
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.


BROKEN HONOR 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.

~Book Review~

BROKEN HONOR is the story of Mara and Quinn and their tumultuous journey to a happily-ever-after. When I heard about the book, the first thing that attracted me was the cover. I love stories with military or police heroes and this one promised an interesting read. The blurb is again very intriguing and sure to attract the readers' attention.

I started out with this book knowing nothing about the author and the series. Only after I had finished the book and loved it so much that I went back to check more about the author and came to know that it is part of the bestselling Hornet series by Tonya Burrows. This book, therefore, can be read as a standalone.

BROKEN HONOR takes us to the murky world of trafficking, dangerous criminals with no conscience and a broken hero grappling with memory loss who is a target both for the criminals and the army. In this fierce and scary environment, we meet Mara who is in love with our hero and the hero in turn also feels strongly for her but is desperately trying to fight his feelings for her. All the action, suspense and danger starts when Mara is kidnapped and Quinn follows her just like Liam followed his daughter in the movie "Taken".

I was so engaged in this book that I could not keep it down until I had finished reading it. Tonya created a realistic and honest world in her book which scared me but also enlightened me to the crass realities of our world. We live in our own happy bubble unaware of the cruel, mindless and heart wrenching atrocities being meted out to helpless people.

The characterization is expertly done and I soon connected with everyone in this book. I could feel the helplessness of Quinn when he could not save Mara from getting kidnapped, the fear of Mara for herself and her unborn child and the undying loyalty of the Hornet team for their fellow teammate, Quinn as they selflessly follow him to the darkest and most dangerous corners of the earth. Tonya's characters are strong, realistic and seem so real that you feel like you have met them and know them already. The romance between Quinn and Mara is heart wrenching, intense and had me rooting for these two. They both are stubborn and fighting their own demons.

The suspense part of the book, the action and the romance is well balanced and developed admirably by the author. Tonya has done her research which shows when we are reading the book. I went places while reading this book and loved every second of it.


All in all, I loved reading BROKEN HONOR and give it 4.5 out of 5. Strongly recommended to all romance lovers above the age of eighteen. Tonya is a talented writer and I am so happy that I came to know about her. Will be checking out the previous books in this series and Tonya's other books.




I received an ARC from the author, the tour organizers and NetGalley and I am very thankful to them. The above review is my honest and unbiased opinion and in no way influenced.
