They say good things come to those who wait and in this case, it is definitely true. I feel like I've waited forever for Honor to get the HEA she so rightly deserved. Zeke what can I say, I loved him. In fact, I love this whole dang book. Cover to cover it hit every one of my emotions with just enough funny to help me through the more serious scenes. Honor, brave, courageous Honor is a fighter. An exceptional and realistic h. I love this series, but this one truly stands out.

Yes! Yes! Yes!!

Okay SPOILERISH bits will more than likely follow!

This is the one I've been waiting for since the first in the series (back when it was called the "Men of McKinnon" series)... and for once, a book we've been waiting years for, and expecting good things of, actually really does live up to expectations!! Aaaaannnndd bonus points - it's all in one book!! It's over 550 pages, and the author, contrary to the usual these days, didn't say "oh but I just couldn't tell their story in one b

The McKinnon girls are a tight bunch—always looking out for each other since their parents passed away, and especially close knit since Honor was so brutally attacked when she was only sixteen years old. Honor’s been through quite a bit since then, and she’s been dealing with everything on her own. But with her nightmares increasing due to the knowledge that the final two attackers are still at large and actively tormenting her, Honor may have reached her breaking point…especially if one Ezekiel ...more

Fuck this I'm reading author's book Hard as Stone. The H, sisters & other family knew of all the horrors their sister suffered yet (view spoiler). They tried to control her. Disgusting Emotional blackmail.

I started this series cause yes I heard the KA vibe was strong with this one. It has been a fun and enjoyable series with interesting characters. It revolves around the McKinnon sisters and their town Paradise. Home to stubborn and fiesty tight knit sister and alpha guys, these alpha guys have humorous moments too. This being the last book with Honor and Zeke, a long time coming gearing up for their tumultuous story.

This book is probably the most serious and has a sensitive topic more t

“I knew…once I got to you…in your arms, I’d be okay. I just had to make it until you got there.”
I was introduced to Sarah O’Rourke and this series, Passion in Paradise: The Men of the McKinnon Sisters, in June of 2014, and I became an instant fan. I was immediately hooked by this quirky town, the interesting and refreshing cast of characters and the exciting, sexy stories. But the characters and the story that called to me the most was that of the youngest McKinnon sister, Honor, and the patient

This is a book I really wish had half stars because it was definitely better than 3 stars, but wasn't what I would consider a 4 star read....but better than 3.5 stars. Confusing? Yeah I know.

There were some truly great things about this book. Number one being Zeke! For some weird reason, I didn't realise the age difference between the two of them was so great. Zeke is 15 years older than her and is 39 years old; Honor is 24. She is incredibly innocent and naive in quite a lot of ways, and her '

Favorite Quotes:

Fear is a mysterious entity, complicated and dynamic in its components.

Educate your brother, Zeke, before he accidentally goes and gets himself whacked by Patience and I have to represent my wife in a murder trial. You've met my babies. There's no way I survive raising my kids on my own.

You'd think she'd be less huffy what with her gettin' some lawman lovin'. Tell me, child. What's the sheriff packin' in his pants? Are we talkin' a pocket pistol or a hand cannon?

Man of Honor is the awaited story of Zeke and Honor. As you know reading the series that Honor at the age of 16 had suffered from being kidnapped, raped and left for dead. This was hard on all of them. My heart hurt to read about it in the previous books but that was just a glimpse because now we get the details and the agony that she endured. My heart literally broke into a million pieces to witness what she had to go through and that she still suffers from it. Zeke is not only the town sheriff ...more

Let me start off by saying I read this book as a stand alone and I never do that! I'm always so worried about feeling lost. But this book had the perfect blend of letting me know past history while giving me an amazing story. I will be going back and reading the other books simply because I fall in love with the writing of this author. These characters grow on you so quickly. It's the perfect blend of heart wrenching, nail biting anticipation and belly hurting humor. Honor and Zeke are the main ...more

Absolutely loved Honor and the lovely Sherriff Zeke!!! What a man!! He's gorgeous, older wiser, hot, patient and above all completely and utterly devoted to Honor. My god what a story these two have. Honor must be one of the most strong, but broken heroines I've ever read!!! She has gone through so much and yet she kept going. Zeke sees a light in her go out so many times yet he preserves and waits until she is ready for their love, and omg what an epic love story theirs is.

A series that I enjoy very much is ‘the Passion in Paradise series’ by Sarah O’Rourke. The men are Alpha (a tiny bit over the top) and the McKinnon sisters are sassy, make their men fight for them. Throughout the books about the elder sisters, the horrific ordeal of the youngest McKinnon sister – Honor – is a returning topic, just as sheriff Zeke’s love for her. Man of Honor finally gives us their story and it doesn’t disappoint.

3.25 stars. This was an okay read for me. This is Honor and Zeke's story. Honor has a horrible past (kind of OTT really). She was kidnapped, held hostage, stabbed all up and gang raped by 5 men when she was 16. She has also been impaled by a tree in a car accident and has a stalker/someone trying to kill her since then. Now 8 years later, she is still a mess emotionally. So much so that her family and friends hold an intervention and tell her they will cut ties to her if she doesn't go to therap ...more

Man of Honor (Passion in Paradise Book 6) (The Men of the McKinnon Sisters Book 4) by Sarah O'Rourke is the story the series has been building to- Zeke, the Sherriff in Paradise, TN, & Honor, the baby sister of the McKinnon’s. Man Of Honor does not disappoint and I was so glad to be given the story I have been waiting for. This ends The Men of the McKinnon Sisters series part and what a page turning end.

I received an Advanced Readers Copy of Man of Honor in exchange for my honest review.

This book is book four of the Passion in Paradise series. I will say that this is the first book in the series I am reading, and that it is definitely NOT a standalone novel You must read the other stories in order to truly get what is going on with our main characters Honor and Zeke. There are literally 8 years of back story that we only get glimpses of and its just enough to help understand what's going on in
Sheriff Zeke Monroe knows he will only love one woman, Honor McKinnon. Honor disagrees, she feels she is damaged from the brutal rape years ago and that she will never be able to give Zeke what he really needs, a passionate wife. Zeke sees things differently and hen an incident forces Honor to make a choice, her family, Zeke, and her anchors she is forced to do something she does not want to. However it works in her favor, Honor starts to see things differently especially where Zeke is concerned ...more

Saying goodbye is such a hard thing to do. We have watched Zeke and Honor's relationship grow throughout this entire series. Sarah truly saved the best for last. This is one very long read that walks us through the story of Zeke and Honor from the beginning. So if you're picking this up without having read the rest of the series that's ok. You will definitely have a greater appreciation of the book and characters if you've read at least some of the previous books.

I've never read the previous books in the series so I went in blind and I think it enhanced by experience. I'm not going to lie I was emotionally shredded at points. Honor's pain is tangible it lives inside her and affects her every waking and sleeping moments, to be honest I'm not sure how she managed to function at all. Zeke has been in love with Honor since she was 18 though she doesn't accept it. Thank goodness he was so stubborn his devotion to her wellbeing brought tears to my eyes. A stor ...more

I'm assuming if you are reading this review you have read the previous books in this Fantastic Series....

This book is about Honor and Zeke. It's honestly been a long long time coming. From the 1st book in this series I was addicted and I wanted Honor's book the most.

Man of Honor by Sarah O'Roarke is the fourth book in her Passion in Paradise series. For those who are fans of this series, this is the long-anticipated book involving Zeke and Honor.

Honor has had a tragic life. She was gang raped as a teen, has had multiple near death experiences, and has been held hostage more than once. It should be noted that Honor owns a cafe and is not in the military, a private investigator, or cop, so such a plethora of experiences were a bit of a surprise to me.

Man of Honor, by Sarah O'Rourke, may have started out kind of slow, but it ended with a huge bang. This turned out to be a good read, I was a little confused on following the story line at first. Once you get it all together and straightened out though you can't put the book down.

Zeke Monroe made and awful decision 8 years ago, once that will haunt him everyday for the rest of his life, but it will continue to haunt Honor in more ways than he could protect her from. Honor being a young girl and

I love these two ladies who make up this author! Each book I have ready by them have been nothing short of perfect with their strong heroines and swoony heroes. They make you believe in happy endings. They make you believe in second chances. These ladies are known for their witty banter, sizzling chemistry, and meaningful experiences.

First off I just have to say....Finally!!! I feel like this book was the most anticipated book out of the series. I mean, most of the series revolves around the tragedies that happened to Honor, (and her sisters as well), but because of Honor's horrifying past encounter, I couldn't wait for her story to unravel.

Zeke. Where do I even start with him? He has to be the most patient man in the universe!! For him to wait around for 6 years!! Holy hell man! He's practically a saint & ever so th

It all goes on in Paradise and it seems Honor has had more than her fare share of bad luck.

I haven't read previous books and was gifted this for a review and after reading this I wish I had to get the fuller picture when I first started to read the story.

Told in third person, not an ideal choice for me as I like to get closer to the characters with their thoughts and feelings but it worked.

Great characters in both Zeke,Honor and extended characters from previous books.

This was my first book in this series, but I am a big Sarah O’Rourke fan and really liked the other books set in this world. I know, I know, I have already started Cain’s book. This was a very hard book for me to get through, not because it wasn’t good, but because it was so good. The very first chapter, I wasn’t sure I could finish it, but I hung in there. When you have two great writers like Sarah O’Rourke, they make you feel like a part of the book. In this case, it was tough because of all t ...more
