The story picks up after the end of the first book,I Am Justice,and focuses on one of the only male members of the Parrish ‘family’, Tony, who has got himself into hot water ...more
Through a certain lens, all three of this week’s books are wrapped around the question about whether the ends justify the means – and who gets to make that decision.
The way that this is worked out in The Cost of Honor, and in the entire Black Ops Confidential series, makes this both a harder and a deeper story than the events on its surface. And a fitting conclusion to the story arc begun in the awesome I Am Justice. (The book is awesome and so is the ...more
As I started reading the story, it was easy to get engaged with the story. The author went straight into it and Honor and Tony met in a life-saving way. They are both mysterious and their current situations only added to my intrigue.
From there things ...more

Black Ops Confidential #3, An absolutely gripping story, from start to finish it is unputdownable. Tony and Honor are great characters you really feel for them and root for them. I love how at the beginning of each of these books the Parrish Family always seems like it's bad but as the book goes own the perception of the family changes as the main character learns the truth. Tony faked his own death to avoid punishment for something he did and he thought he didn't deserve it, they ...more

A non-stop ride!
The Cost of Honor is Tony's story--as the only boy adopted into a family of kick-butt female vigilantes, you know he's going to need an HEA with a woman who can stand up to him and give just as good as she gets. Honor definitely does not disappoint!
Truth time--I hadn't realized that there was a book in between this one and the first ( I Am Justice )--somehow I completely missed the release of The Price of Grace --which did leave me ...more
Return to the crazy, dangerous world of the Parish family for THE COST OF HONOR, the third title in the Black Ops Confidential series. Tony’s story is one that I’ve been waiting for, knowing what happened previously in THE PRICE OF GRACE. While you ‘could’ read each title on its own, I really believe that this series should be, if possible, read in order for there are some crossover events, some background that flows through them all. I know that’s not always ...more

Thanks goes to the publisher, via Net-Galley, for the opportunity to read and review The Cost of Honor, book 3 in the Black Ops Confidential series, in advance of publication. My opinions are my own and are not influenced in any way.
This is the first book I’ve read by Diana Munoz Stewart. Her writing is quick and sharp, making this an action-packed reading experience. There are quite a few secondary characters, which had me shaking my head in confusion a few times. The plot is fast ...more

I was glad that I liked Honor and Tony right away, and that they just went with their desires instead of fighting it. Yes, he had his secrets, but that didn’t stop either of them. This romantic suspense had a lot going on – constant danger, mysterious murders, and sexy romance. I enjoyed ...more
Wow, there was non-stop action and so many twists and turns that when the full story is revealed, I was shocked that I was not even close to figuring this out!
At first, I was a bit confused as I had not read any of the previous books in this series and did not know the whole host of characters and wondered if Tony really seemed like the villain in the previous books as he was definitely not a villain in this book.
Even though he knows that his past ...more
I adored this book. I loved the love between Tony and Honor and I loved the mystery behind who wanted to come after Honor's family. I also really appreciated getting to revisit the Parish family, especially getting to see what's going on with past characters Justice and Gracie (and Sandesh and Dusty).
As usual, ...more
This was my first book from this author, overall I found it very well written and action packed. The storyline was certainly orginal, I loved Honor she was certainly a go-getter an a hard worker. Yet someone is out to destroy her business and her, Tony enters her life and wow did things heat up quickly. I would recommend this book to others, I enjoyed it a lot.
I really enjoyed this story, I will admit that at the beginning I found it to be a little slow but the story soon picked up pace and I thought it was really enjoyable when I got in to the main body of the story as there was a lot more action and the plot was stronger.
I thought that the characters were well developed and I enjoyed getting to know them and their different personalities.
It is 4 stars from me for this one, highly recommended!!
