Honor Redeemed by Loree Lough

First of all, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Loree Lough and her publisher for sending me a copy of "Honor Redeemed" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.

Loree Lough’s “Honor Redeemed” is Book 2 in the First Responders Series. Although I have not read Book 1 “From Ashes to Honor,” this novel reads well as a standalone. Honor Mackenzie is a dedicated Search and Rescue team leader in Baltimore. Matt Phillips is an equally dedicated father of twin boys. He is also a widower and a reporter who gets under Honor’s skin. Each has their own reasons for not wanting to become involved in a romantic relationship. But those reasons disintegrate a bit at a time as their admiration for each other grows.

This novel is full of action, adventure, friendship and romance. The adrenaline junkie that lives in my brain would have liked a bit more in the action and suspense departments, and I would’ve liked a different ending, but this novel has the formula down pat for conflict to build an entertaining romantic plot. Those moments of conflict were frustrating at times, but the touching moments made up for much of it. I still look forward to reading the other books in the series.
