This series just keeps getting better and better... if that’s even possible.

Angel Payne delivers yet another delicious, action packed, suspenseful book full of twists and turns, hot as hell sex scenes, bdsm scenes and so much more!

Ethan Archer? *Happy sighs* Oh boy, he is just perfect. He’s sexy as hell (I picture an Ian Somerhalder type *drools*) loyal, kind hearted, yet demanding, controlling and possessive as hell. Which is everything and more that I want in a book boyfriend! He’s a
Illustrious Illusions
The third installment in the W.I.L.D. Boys Series did not disappoint. I admit to having a little trouble sinking my teeth into it, but once I got started (by the end of Chapter One) I was hooked and cursing Angel, because I had work that needed to be done!!

I really loved Ethan and Ava together. They had great chemistry and just enough turmoil to keep things hot and fulfilling as a reader! Their passion flares after months apart and there is no denying the sexy Sergeant once he puts his mind to g

Ethan met Ava at Garrett and Sage Hawkins wedding (Ethan's Special Forces teammate).
The two go for a walk in the woods to gather flowers for Sage's bouquet, when they shared a very long passionate kiss. But it was only to last just a moment in time, because Ava had to return to L.A. and Ethan on to his next mission.
Ethan and his buddies took a trip to Los Angels to celebrate his becoming Sergeant. While there, he hoped to run into Ava, because that night in the woods never left his mi

This series is so addicting. The characters are so easy to connect with and have great depth. The plot is filled with action and romance. I love the connection with Ethan and Ava, they are both at a battle of wills and it’s only a matter of time before one of them cracks. The action only seems to bring them closer and I really enjoyed how well the pace flowed. The humor that Angel tossed in for good measure was also an added bonus. This book s is such a great read as a whole I never lost interes

Recommends it for: Anyone who like steamy romances mixed with intense action.
Recommended to Shel by: Angel Payne
This one grabs you and tightens the hold all the way through! Ethan is the power and excitement Ava ordered up in spades. Bella is the corkscrew in her way. But somehow they manage to shove her aside and explore this relationship that was months in the making. Meanwhile, the team assumed they were getting a little Hollywood R & R but even that turns into a mission and this time it's for all the marbles! No relaxing here boys and girls. Also, T-Bomb has his own close encounters with a certain tra ...more

I love this series. It is not just a romance story. This book, as well as the others in the series, have intrigue and suspense. I was totally on the edge of my seat with this one. I love that she puts so much detail into the story. Ethan and Ava are a hot couple and don't deserve the obstacles they have to overcome. We get all the other exciting characters, Garrett, Zeke, Sage and Rayna and all the W.I.L.D. Boys.

You won't regret reading this series, I promise.

Destined for Love

Ethan Archer, Soldier of Fortune meets Ava Chestain, a stylist to the rich and famous at Ethan's Special Forces team mate's wedding. Ethan and Ava have instant chemistry and find themselves hot and bothered with each other in the forest of all places. Fast hot and sexy best describes their passion for each other, but it is only brief. But Ethan and Ava were not to be at that time. Ava returns to L.A. and Ethan on a new mission.

I didn’t have nearly the same opinion of this one. It felt quite disjointed, and the sex scenes were mediocre at best

These characters are now a part of my life! Ahhhhh! Angel Payne is a goddess when it comes to developing characters who are swoon-worthy, charismatic, and honorable. The Honor Bound Series has stolen my heart and the characters won't leave my head! I loved Ethan and Ava's story in Seduced. The Hollywood make-up artist, Ava, cannot deny Ethan any longer, nor can he suppress the carnal need to test Ava's natural instincts. The two are caught up in more than just a love battle as they navigate thei ...more

Ethan and Ava had me reading as fast as I could from page one. I absolutely adored Ethan and his feelings for Ava from the minute he realized she wasn’t an attacker out to destroy a wedding. (Although how they met cracked me up)

Ava was very guarded and at first I wanted to yell at her like loosen up girlfriend, this sexy man wants you! When I learned about her past, I totally understood why she kept trying to withdraw and keep herself safe. As Ava let’s go and allows herself to be more open phys

Had the privilege of reading and ARC copy. Wow this book blew me away more than the first two. Can't wait to read the next ones. Ethan/Runway stumbled upon Ava at Hawkins wedding. He never expected to never be able to get her out of his head.
Ava wanted away from any military men for the rest of her life, but her run in with Ethan stopped her heart and made her head swim. Being Rayna's cousin and finding herself around these special forces guys made it harder to get Ethan out of her head.

Ava and Ethan are on action packed sensual adventure filled with desire, danger, and desperation. You wouldn't think being mistaken for a terrorist and body checked would be a way to meet someone but apparently cupid has a sense of humor. The moment Ethan Archer pinned her to that tree and possessed her so fully, for the first time she finally found herself. There's just one problem though… Ava’s been down the Heartbreak Road with military men before and she refuses to risk her heart again. Etha ...more

This book has all the feels. From the torment of Ethan's mind with what he does for special forces and his almost obsession with Ava. This book makes me believe in love at first sight. Seven months since the first and last time they saw each other. But neither could stop the thoughts and fantasies. Though I can't blame Ava. There love story is epic. Ava had to fight a lot of demons to accept Ethan but he never gives up. Even with the obstacles coming between them. The story that their love story ...more

This book literally had me on the edge of my seat, griping my phone and my blankets tightly in my hand, trying to figure out what was going to happen next. I was always wrong in my assumptions. This story just got better and better with every page. Ava simply amazes me. Her strength and willpower is what i strive for. She is so brave and no matter what life throws at her, she always comes out on top. Ethan is a powerful force to be reckoned with. He is very intelligent and headstrong. The two of ...more

This is such a great series...not only are the romances so hot but there is also mystery and intrigue. Ava Chestain and Ethan Archer met over 6 months ago at Garrett and Sage's wedding (almost) and had an instant attraction. But before they could continue to see where their potential relationship could go, Ava ups and goes back to Los Angeles and refuses to respond to Ethan's messages and voicemails.

This third book in the Honor Bound Series was really good! I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Ava and Ethan! I love how Ava is smart, put together, honest, and kind. Ethan is all of these things ontop of being strong willed, intelligent, and dominant! They are the perfect pair and their story brings two people from very different backgrounds together for two important reasons; they are soul mates and they need to save LA, of course!! Like most series you get peaks of past characters whom are j ...more

Book 3 in the Honor Bound Series keeps this series going strong.. They just keep getting better and better.

We briefly saw a bit of Ava and Ethan in Cuffed and could see a distinct chemistry... Let's just say that when they meet again they are ON FIRE!!! This story had so much detail. You will have love, heat, suspense and just tons of details.. LOVED IT.

You know I kept thinking as I read Saved and Cuffed that Zeke would win me over, but Ethan is definitely up there! I feel like I know them all p

The Honor Bound series just keeps getting better. Danger seems to follow the men of the Special Force team and the ladies they love. It is no different with Seduced. Ava and Ethan first meet in Cuffed and sparks flew. Now that they are reunited do those sparks turn into a full blown inferno. Ava tries her hardest to fight her attraction and the need to submit to Ethan but boy did it not work. Ethan is one hot man. I loved this one. I couldn't put it down. I so can't wait to read more.

If you thought Zeke was hot in Cuffed wait until you meet Ethan. Sexy special ops nicknamed Runway for his good looks. His specialty is getting into the bad guys head. When not on duty you won’t believe how he can get into Ava’s head. One of the steamiest reads doesn’t even have him touching her but putting such a visual in her head my ereader about burned up. While this group is on a special assignment you also get to meet Tait, another special ops with his eye on Luna. These men can burn it up ...more

As this series goes on it seems the books just get better and better. Ethan Archer… Oh the things I can say. I absolutely loved this guy and wouldn’t mind having a man like him!! This book has a lot of action, drama etc but that all seems to follow the SF men. I don’t want to give anything away. One thing I do know is that this series is a must read especially in order. I highly recommend it

I can't describe these books in a way to describe how absolutely awesome they are. Ethan and Ava must fight through her troubled past to find love. They must work together to uncover an evil plot to kill millions. Time is running out will they be able to find love and save each other.
