Seven years late, Katelyn’s brother is in trouble so she calls the only person she knows that can help, Nick.

It's may be the worst book I read in a while.

The hero takes her virginity and then leaves her without a f*cking word. He never says goodbye after they have been friends for years and he says he loves her and has always done so. BULL CRAP!
Then he comes back, and with NO GROVEL AT ALL,
She sleeps with him? WTF?
What kind of a stupid dumb slut are you now!?
The guy leaves you without a word for 7 years and he never says "I am sorry I am a complete dick!"
Cause he totally is!!!

An Act of Salvation was a highly enjoyable read for me and I'm very happy I didn't let it sit on my Kindle any longer. I loved the relationship that Kate and Nick had, even during the times I wanted to slap both of them for being so stupid. Yes they could both be very annoying at times but that's what made their connection so real for me and I loved seeing them together.

This story was a very intriguing one and I was hooked from the second I brought it up on my Ki
★★★ 3 Stars ★★★

An Act of Salvation is the second in a series of novels which are a spin off of the A Men of Honor Series, In this instalment, we follow the story of Katelynn & Nick.

Katelyn along with her older brother Kolan grew up in a neglectful and abusive household, but not only did they have each other to turn to for comfort and understanding, they had their friend Nick Stone, who was a kindred spirit and was also a little broken from his past.

As they grew up, Katelyn and Nick felt a pull

5 Stars only because I can’t give her more!!!

So everyone knows that I love anything that KC writes. Anything. When I first met Nick in Beautifully Insightful, I sent her messages that I wanted to know what he was hiding. What is his back story. Her reply was simply, you have to wait and see!!

So my wait is finally over:

Loved this one! I can't believe I bought this in Jan and just now read it! KC Lynn knows how to write about a hot broken alpha male and a sassy female to go with him. Loved Nick and Katelyn! I'm so glad we also got more of the crew from the Men of Honor series in this book. I love them! Can't wait to read the next one about Katelyn's brother!

Review by Lisa Kane

"When you see how big the universe really is, it makes all your problems feel a little smaller."

Katelyn Slade has made a new life for herself with her cousin Faith and her friends in Charleston. There was a time when it was just her brother Kolan that she could count on. Her father was abusive and her mother let him treat his kids however he wanted. But they made it out alive and although she made some poor choices in men, she's got her own salon and life is good.

The series just got so much better.

This book was just brilliant. I was dying to read this after the lil teasers at the end of first book in this series An Act of Redemption. I knew it was goin to be crazy from the beginning and I wasn't wrong. Katelyn is the sister of Kolan how has gotten himself into a stick situation. Things weren't looking good for him but Katelyn believed in her brother he meant to world to her. He has protected her all his life and he wasn't goin to stop. So she knew wh

KC Lynn absolutely smashed it yet again. I knew she wouldn't disappoint but damn. Slick Nick just made his way into my KC favourites. Right from the first page this book will have you hooked. Full of mystery and tension I couldn't put it down.

Katelyn is the heroine all future heroines should be based on. She is strong as hell and not afraid to go for what she wants. That being Nick of course.

Nick is plagued by his past. He knows he will never be good enough for Kate. Not only is she younger th

I just can't even...where on earth am I supposed to do I begin to describe the way that this book made me feel?

An Act of Salvation is the journey of Katelyn Slade and Nick Stone. From the very beginning you are pulled into something so raw, so real and heartfelt. Katelyn has known since she was a little girl that, Nick, has always been the one. But Nick is a little older, Nick is also her brother's best friend.
Nick wants to make something of himself, his life. Nick is also not igno

“You are more.” Those three words wouldn’t mean anything to most people, but to me they are everything. They own my heart as much as the man next to me does and they were the best last words to hear before I fall into a peaceful slumber.”

“Live without regrets because life is too short.”

What an amazing read!! I absolutely loved loved it. K.C. Lynn has once again blown me away. I honestly don’t know how she does it. How is it possible to make me fall in love with each book

I have been staring at this empty review box on and off all day, contemplating what the hell I am suppose to write in here to do this book any justice without giving away any of the enjoyment of the story.

The way KC Lynn writes a book is nothing short of amazing, the way she draws you in from the very first page and weaves you into the world of her characters is incredibly talented.

Once again, she manages to captures the characters passion, chemistry and problems without once going 'over board'.

An Act of Salvation is the second book in the Acts of Honor series by the immensely talented KC Lynn. This book features characters we have met in previous books by this author but it can be read as a stand alone without missing a beat and as with all this author's books it has no cliffy and the epic HEA. The alpha male that gets brought to his knees by a small but mighty woman keeps getting better and better ever time this author picks up a pen.

This is the second book in the Acts of Honor series and my favourite to date.

This time the story focuses on Katelyn and Nick. We have met Katelyn in previous books and I was pleased we were getting her story. Katelyn, Kolan (Her brother) and Nick were all best friends growing up, then one night everything changed and Nick left both Katelyn and Kolan behind to complete his FBI training. However when Kolan gets into trouble and her own safety is in danger Katelyn turns to the one person she has a

4.2 stars

Again, I love how this series is new but still has the characters from the first one so intertwined. Strong characters, laughs, and suspense. I really liked Nick and Katelyn. This book would have ranked higher had the climax scene that is known in this author's books made more sense. I'm confused as to how everyone survived and that bothered me and made me rank it down.

Still, a great addition to this series. Loved seeing new characters being introduced too.

I know I've said this before and I will probably most definitely say it again. On occasion, I tend to read books and series out of order. So, after I read An Act of Redemption before I ever read the Men of Honor series, I promised my friend Marcia I would absolutely get to the Men of Honor series and I'm sorry to say, even though the whole series is on my Kindle I still have it on my TBR (sorry Marcia sad face emoji).

Salvation ~ people find it in many different ways, but it has to begin within themselves in order to truly persevere because without saving themselves first, they won’t be able to save anyone else regardless of how hard they try.

When they were younger, Katelyn Slade, her brother, Kolan, and his best friend, Nick Stone were one another’s saving grace; they looked out for each other and provided safe haven amidst the torment done to them by others. Despite their bond, Nick’s inability to fully tru

K.C. Lynn never fails to deliver a book that makes her readers feel. Whether it be pain or heartache, love or hate, terror or joy--the emotion that this author is able stir within her readers through her words is a rare and incredible experience. This is not my first K.C. Lynn novel, so I fully expected to be put through the wringer, and yet even I was surprised at the depth of emotion this book brought out in me.

I started reading an act of salvation at 11.30 one night and I kept on going right through until I hit the end of the book. So many amazing things about this book it's hard to know where to start.

I was ecstatic to get this book as I have been curious about Nick Stone since reading about him in Beautifully Insightful. I loved Ryder and let me tell you Nick is just as HOT as Ryder. They both have the whole dirty mouth, alpha male personality down to perfection!

Nick and Katelyn grew up together as teenagers and shared one night together that neither one of them will forget. The passion and chemistry these two have together is off-the-charts HOT.

h- Katelyn 5 stars, she was a kick-ass girl, who I also loved very much.

•I also loved the way they finally came back together after so many years.
•All the action was amazing

Parts I didn’t like

K.C. Lynn is absolutely astonishing. Her books miraculously keep getting better an better. Whenever I read K.C. Lynn book I am fully aware I'm about to fall in love again and have a brand new book boyfriend.

Nick and Katelyn have been through so much and it is heartbreaking to read about how they suffered for years without each other. There is so much action and suspense in An Act of Salvatio
