Honor Bound by Hallee Bridgeman: Book Review

About the book:

Title: Honor Bound

Author: Hallee Bridgeman

Genre: Christian Mystery and Suspense

Release Date: September 6, 2022

It may seem odd to seek peace by moving to a war-torn African country, but for medical missionary Dr. Cynthia Myers, it provided a way to escape a shallow life of unearned wealth, a philandering fiancé, and a father now square in the public eye as vice president of the United States. At least here she knows her work and life have meaning. But all that is thrown into chaos when she fails to save the life of a local warlord’s mortally wounded son.

As part of the Army Special Forces “A-Team” on a mission to capture and subdue the warlord, Captain Rick Norton is compelled to use deadly force to save Cynthia’s life. Enraged at the violence she witnessed and riddled with guilt that men died because of her, Cynthia tries to hold on to her anger–but an unwanted attraction is taking hold.

With two members of his team badly injured and rebels in hot pursuit, Rick will have to draw upon all his strength and cunning to get her out alive . . . because he’s beginning to think they just might overcome their differences and be able to make a life together.

Book Review:

I have to say that this is one of the best opposites attract romances that I’ve come across. Cynthia and Rick could not see things more differently, and when their views are challenged–by the other–then it’s a full-on conflict right in the middle of an already tense scene. The author does a remarkable job of bringing the setting to life and giving the reader characters that they can root for even if they can’t see eye to eye. Honor Bound is a touching and intense story that reaches through the pages to wrap around your heart. I honestly had no idea how she would manage to bring Cynthia and Rick to a place where they might see through their differences and find a place of peace. Reading through their journey is something I will never forget. I received a copy of this book through RevellReads. I was not required to leave a positive review. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.
