Pat's Review: Code of Honor

Code of Honor by Tonya Burrows
Publisher: Entangled: Amara (October 23, 2017)
Series: HORNET, 4
Genre: Romantic Suspense

Jesse Warrick used to consider himself a kickass medic, but a teammate’s brush with death has him questioning everything. Now he’s been promoted to field commander of HORNET. How can he lead when he can’t get his shit together? And how can he focus when the sexy new recruit makes him want to break the rules?

Lanie Delcambre can’t seem to find solid footing within the elite hostage rescue team. Worse, the man she’s loved for most of her life is now her boss. She’d kill to act on the chemistry between her and Jesse, but she can’t risk ruining her career.

It was only supposed to be a training mission. No live ammo, no hostages, and no real bad guys—only someone didn’t give the bad guys that memo. When their hotel is taken hostage with half of HORNET inside, Jesse and Lanie are the team’s only hope of escaping alive…

Pat's Review:

This book is non-stop action from the first page to the last. It’s exciting, romantic, and very suspenseful. The Hornet Team is back!

Jesse Warren, medic for the Hornet Team, is fighting a few personal battles. He recently had his fifteen year old son, Connor, sent to him because his ex wife couldn’t handle him. He’s abrasive and angry at the world, especially his father. The Hornet team is preparing for a training mission to check out prospective team members, and they suggest taking Connor along for the experience. He’ll get to see what his dad does besides ranching. Jesse is discouraged because he has filled out multiple applications to medical schools, is qualified, but they all question his “not honorable” discharge from his military service.

Elena Delcambre (Lanie) is Jesse’s neighbor and the only female member of the Hornet team. He’s been desperately fighting his attraction to her and after a tough training week, the thought of her in a bikini is making him crazy.

They’ll be headed to an exclusive resort in Martinique for some R and R But this training mission has difficulties of its own, starting with Jesse finding himself heading the mission. He’s flattered that they have confidence in him, but he has a lot of self doubt. After the mission is completed without major incident, other than exhaustion, multiple insect bites, and no one dies, Connor is pretty impressed with his dad.

The beautiful island resort is just what they all need, but several members of the team have an underlying feeling of danger. A doctor from a medical team is missing, some of the new recruits are acting strangely, and one of them in particular has taken a severe dislike for Connor. But Jessie and Lanie find themselves in each other’s arms after a mind bending kiss. Their happily ever after is put on pause as sudden serious conflict erupts on the island.

This was an exciting read with danger and romance thick in the air. This fourth in the series can be read as a standalone, but knowing the history of the men in the Hornets Team will make the story that much more enjoyable.
