KAYLA~ He moved in next door to me, all bronzed skin and lean muscle, with a panty dropping smile that could make any girl weep with need. He set my body and teenage hormones on fire for three years. THREE LONG YEARS.

In that time he became a cop- Officer Sexy as I liked to call him- and every time I pushed, he retreated. But I knew he felt it, I saw it in the way he

4,5 “So sad this is the end.” Stars.


If you’ve read this series you know it’s impossible not to fall in love with Kayla and Cooper as a couple. They were in every book and not only was Kayla absolutely awesome, but Cooper was also pretty damn sweet and nice. Both of them together as a couple were always great, so for me it was great to know that they were getting their own novella, telling us how everything started between them. It didn’t disappoint, not only was good to see a more “vulnerable”

Kayla and Cooper ..

Tell all of these boys they're wasting their time
Stop standing in line, 'cause you're all mine ..


#GOALS. What a couple! This lovely duo leaves me at a loss of words .. maybe PERFECTION would suffice. I fell deeply in love with them in the first novel where they were introduced. They were absolutely adorable and brought tears. to my eyes despite the fact that they weren't even the main characters.

This is the final story in the series Men of honor (about three honorable and courageous Navy Seals)...we've followed Jaxon and Julia's story , Sawyer and Grace's story and Cade and Faith's story, we bled, cried and laughed with them all...
but through out all of those books, one secondary charachter stole my heart from the first letters that said his name – Cooper McKay – a goodhearted, golden boy of Sunset bay (but there's so much more to him, he's

Kayla was my favorite out of all the heroines. I really wish K.C. Lynn would have given Kayla and Coop a full story.

The story was told as a flashback on Kayla’s wedding day. We all know Kayla is wild and I wondered how she snatched up a man of the law. This story started out sad and infuriating, but then the author reveals the reason for Coop’s actions and it became sweet and loving.

I typically struggle with short stories, but because I read about Kayla and Coop in 3 other books, this

I LOVED this novella, mainly because I love the heroine Kayla. Her personality is awesome ! Kayla's fun loving, sassy, a wonderful friend to Julia ( the heroine from Fighting Temptation ) and she's full of adventure with all the zany plans she devises to help her best friend or to get Cooper ( the older H ) to notice that she's finally 18 years old. I loved Julia from Fighting Temptation but I always preferred Kayla the best, from among all the heroines in this series, because I can identify ...more

Big 5 stars!

Beautiful and perfect ending for this series ...

Kayla was the best ... she is a little devil and I liked her a lot ...

"You are the biggest pain in the ass. But you are my pain in the ass."

Cooper ... one hot, hot, hot sheriff ...

"He was the first man I ever loved and he will be my last. I will make sure that we share as many unforgettable moments as possible, ones they will stay with us in to eternity."

With each book, this series was getting better and better ...

The Final Temptation is the wraps up the Men of Honor series quite nicely and tells the story of Cooper and Kayla. As the entire gang comes together for a celebration, Kayla reminisces how she first met Cooper when she was 14 and Cooper moved in next door. The story is cute, funny and with plenty of bumps, twists and turns. I love Kayla's quick temper, in your face attitude, but also how sweet and how she loves deeply. I adore the young 20 year old Cooper almost as much as the Cooper you meet in ...more

YES!!! I have been looking forward to Kayla and Cooper's story from the very beginning of this series! This one wasn't as long as the others and it starts out with their wedding day..the goes back in time as Kayla remembers how they met and how she got her man. I've loved Kayla and Cooper through every book in this series and I loved getting all the details on how they met... yep, their story kicked ass.

As I watched him that day, I told myself I was going to marry him. I didn’t care what it took, I was going to make it happen.

Woooo. I think I may start saying, that book was the SH*T! Of course, in a very good way. She done it again. It was so much more that what I was expecting. Fun, sassy, emotional and with a cherry on top full of love.

I had my doubts, because I don’t like books that have
Short, hot read with a great protective alpha hero and a likeable feisty heroine. A really good addition to Men of Honor series.

The Final Temptation (Men Of Honor #4) by K.C. Lynn
The Final Temptation

The Final Temptation is the 4th and last book in the Men of Honor series by KC Lynn. When I first began the MOH series, I was completely hooked by the 3rd or 4th page. Reading KC's books is like inheriting an extended family that you never knew you had, but loved immediately upon meeting them. I can honestly say that I have read each of her books multiple times. It may seem that I am reviewing the entire series instead of talking about The Final Temptation, but I'm getting
~~~ 5 "Officer Sexy" stars~~~

KC Lynn writes one of the best alphas ever, IMO. I'm so infatuated with every single one of them, it's not even funny. Or healthy. I eat that *hit up. I devour her books, enjoying all that angst and OTT heroes' attitude like it's my last breath. Her books always left me in a pile of mushy goo, blissful sighs and googly eyes.

The only reason I haven't read this story before was because it's a novella and you know how I feel about them. But I always wanted to read how

Nothing short of to come5 Star Review by Natasha Gentile

When K.C. Lynn started the Men of Honors series there was always that couple that keep showing up, Kayla and Coop. They had the strongest relationship ever and it always kept me asking how did these two got together. I don’t think I was the only one, since the author finally caved and gave us the novella we have all been waiting for. And she nailed it, yet again….

Another Fantastic read from KC Lynn.Not to be missed!!
As everyone knows I am a HUGE KC Lynn fan. Between her MOH Series and BI. She has become one of my all time favourite authors.
The Fighting Temptation is the last book in the MOH Series. This Coop and Kayla's book, and what an amazing ending to a fantastic series., but with KC you know she is not going to disappoint.

Lets start with Cooper, or Officer Sexy as Kayla calls him, Wow this man is one dirty talker, who made me swoon, and want to

Ms. Lynn knows how to write a book with a hot guy. She writes a strong female weather vocally or just in her will to survive that just endears you to them. This book was no different and even though I would have loved to have the full story because I loved Cooper I won’t complain too much.

Cooper and Kayla have spent years dancing around the attraction. Even though Coop is protective of Kayla and wants more he always walks the fine line of just being the friend. He bides his time even though he

Man, reading this makes me crave a whole book just for these two characters.
Don't get me wrong, this book was great, but just the info we got would have made a fabulous full length.
We've gotten to know the H and h from the previous books, but never got their full story - and man was it PERFECT!

I loved these two and getting to catch up with the others. This is one of my absolute favorite series involving alphas who are OTT protective and possessive. Beautifully written stories all the way around.

I am so sad that this is the end of the Men Of Honor series by K.C. Lynn. I have followed this series from book one with Jaxson and Julia. Of course, we will be seeing them again!

We all have read about Cooper and Kayla in the previous three books. It's time for their story. Let's go back in time and see how they get together. Their story isn't as easy as we once thought it was. They have to go through their own kind of turmoil to get together.

This was the perfect ending to a fantastic series! I've loved reading all the books in this series, and like all the other fans, I've been dying for Cooper and Kayla's story. KC Lynn did not disappoint with this one! While it is a novella, she packed in everything we wanted to know about Kayla and Cooper, and she gave it to us wrapped up in a steamy, sexy, gorgeously romantic bow!

I positively adore this author; she never disappoints me. She just writes those stories

I loved reading Kayla and Coopers story. They have been great characters from the beginning and I love them both. This was short, sweet and hot and I'm a little depressed about the fact that this one was the last in this series. I really loved all books and I hope the next series (from the spinoff) will be just as good. I for one am looking forward to reading them. 5 short but very sweet stars from me.

I think this is a first for me ..... 5 stars for a novella? Really? Oh yes and it deserves every single shiny star. This was bloody fabulous and not once did it feel like I was reading a novella. It wasn't rushed, the deets weren't skimped, it's the perfect end to a totally brilliant series. I LOVED it.
