He gave up everything to escape his family

The only male to be adopted into the notorious Parish family, Tony Parish always did right by his vigilante sisters. But when an attempt to protect one of them went horribly wrong, he had to fake his own death to escape his fanatical family. Tony set sail and ended up in Dominica—face to face with the woman of his dreams…

Now he must give up Honor to save her

After the death of her mother, Honor Silva moved to Dominica, where her family could help her heal and move on. But her activist mother left her more than money, she left her proof that could take down one of the richest and most powerful men in the world.

Tony gave up everything he thought he knew when he fled his family. But when a threat too dangerous for Tony and Honor to fight on their own close in, he has no choice but to go to them for help. Problem is, they’ll demand something in return—something that could cost Tony not just Honor, but also the love that changed him forever.

My Rating:  4 stars

Return to the crazy, dangerous world of the Parish family for THE COST OF HONOR, the third title in the Black Ops Confidential series.  Tony’s story is one that I’ve been waiting for, knowing what happened previously in THE PRICE OF GRACE.  While you ‘could’ read each title on its own, I really believe that this series should be, if possible, read in order for there are some crossover events, some background that flows through them all.  I know that’s not always possible, but it’s still my recommendation for this particular series.

Tony and Honor’s romance is extremely fast-paced, full of action, sensuous sizzles, a growing love, and danger all around them.  Tony is a strong character, raised by strong women who he now must flee from only to discover that in order to save the woman he’s come to love he has to ask for help from people who will take every single thing that’s important to him from him – mainly his memories of Honor.  Danger faces this couple on two fronts as they discover who is behind the threat to Honor, and find a way to save them both.

The Parish family is such a paradox.  They live in a very gray world where right and wrong live side by side and maybe slide to one side or the other on ocassion.  Their stories have been filled with passion, danger, righting wrongs in unusual ways and surviving.  I’ve been hooked on this series and would not hesitate to recommend THE COST OF HONOR or any story in this series to Romantic Suspense readers who enjoy an involved story, compelling characters, and those blurred lines.  I always enjoy myself in this world and I believe you would as well.

*I received an e-ARC of this novel from the publisher via NetGalley. That does not change what I think of this story.  It is my choice to leave a review giving my personal opinion about this book.*

Available in paperback, audio and for the Kindle
