Reckless Honor
Hornet #5
By Tonya Burrows
Releasing April 23rd, 2018
Entangled Publishing

Jean-Luc Cavalier has only ever cared about three things: sex, booze, and the dangerous missions he undertakes with HORNET. Laissez les bons temps rouler is more than a Mardi Gras motto—it’s the way he lives his life. But all that changes the night he rescues Dr. Claire Oliver from deadly mercenaries.

Now he can’t get the gorgeous blond virologist out of his head.

Claire is running for her life. Someone wants her antiviral research and they’re willing to kill anyone and everyone to get it. She has no one to turn to except a womanizing Cajun with a silver tongue and devastating smile.

But when an ultra-deadly virus decimates the Niger Delta, saving Claire and her research becomes the least of HORNET’s concerns. The virus has all the markings of a bioweapon and Nigeria is only the testing grounds…

In Reckless Honor (Hornet #5) by Tonya Burrows, Jean-Luc Chevalier is determined to go against orders all for Dr. Claire Oliver and when he finally finds her, he's determined to keep her safe. But when an ultra-deadly virus is released and causes a number of deaths, Jean-Luc knows Claire isn't the only one that he needs to save. Will they be able to find the person responsible for releasing the dangerous virus or will they die trying, especially if Claire and her research aren't enough to save them?

I read a lot of romantic suspense and I'd have to say that this is one of the best romantic suspense stories I've read this year. Really, it had everything I love in a romantic suspense such as incredible main characters that have plenty of chemistry and their super hot romance does justice to their potent chemistry; highly entertaining dialogue that drew me in from the very beginning and kept me reading till the very end; and plot twists that made this story exciting and had me on the edge-of-my-seat, especially in the moment where the hero and heroine come face-to-face for the first time because of the pair face and whether she can use her life's work to help. 

With the main characters, the heroine was strong and brave in dealing with the crisis she faces. I also liked that she didn't give up when the going gets tough, which it surely does and some moments are heartbreaking because unfortunately doctors can't save everyone. I also liked that she gave the hero a chance. At least she knows she can trust him after everything he's done and continues to do to keep her safe from the people after her and her research. While the hero, he's confident, cool under pressure and I liked that he gave the heroine a chance, even though he doesn't think he's good enough for her. I also liked how protective the hero was of the heroine and that he would do anything to keep her safe, even if it means putting himself in danger or staying away to protect her from himself. Yet, what I liked most of all about the hero was the close friendships he shares with his HORNET teammates and that they would do anything for each other, which is proven by how far they're willing to go to make sure Jean-Luc and Claire are all right.

Overall, Ms. Burrows has delivered an utterly superb read in this book, which I believe is the best of the series yet. The way this story ended had me worried for the main characters, but had me loving that Claire never gave up hope in what she had to do. Then again, Jean-Luc needs her, so she can't give up. I would recommend Reckless Honor by Tonya Burrows, if you enjoy romantic suspense or books by authors Tee O'Fallon, Allison B. Hanson, Cathy Skendrovich and Laura Griffin.
