She’s everything he doesn’t want. Honorable. Beautiful. Strong… wait, what?
Reece lost everything. Twice. Now, he finally has a chance to earn back his place with the Hawks. There’s only one problem: he has to work with Daena. He doesn’t trust her. He doesn’t even like her. And if his beast would just shut up about how perfect she is, that would really help.
If there’s one kind of man Daena’s learned to stay well away from, it’s a handsome liar. But the more Reece reveals—the more she glimpses the vulnerable soul he’s hidden for so long—the closer she wants to get.
But now is not a good time to get close to anyone. Reece and Daena are undercover on a dangerous mission. They’re surrounded by enemies and one wrong move could mean catastrophe.
Can they let go of the past and find a future, standing strong together? Or will they fall, and take the kingdom down with them?
Reece, the final book in The Hawks series, is a sexy, enemies to lovers, adult fantasy romance full of swords, shifters (kind of), and tons of action. But fair warning: This book is intended only for readers who love fast-paced adventure, soul mates and found family—and characters who curse when they fight for survival. If that’s you, happy reading.
This book had the kind of main characters that I love. Reece and Deana are flawed, but that doesn’t make them weak or in any way lesser. They’re both strong and determined, not just physically but emotionally and mentally, too. They persevere and they overcome. I love that so much! The romance and action are perfectly balanced, never too much emphasis on one over the other. There are twists and turns, and plenty of intrigue. And the world-building is amazing. It was easy to fall into their world, to feel a part of it.
