Faith ~ Cade Walker is like no man I’ve ever met before. He’s cynical, brooding, mysterious and, most of all, damaged. He’s a man who declares he’s broken, and one who detests the two very things I live for most: God and love. Yet, I’ve still fallen completely in love with him because I also see the good, something that no one else ever has. I see a man who is strong, silent, honorable and beautiful. He’s a man who is now scarred just as badly on the outside of his body as he is on the inside, all because of me. One who endured severe torture in order to save me from what would be the worst thing I will ever experience in my entire life. He is a man I call my dark angel, one who will have my heart until the end of time, even if I can never have his.
Cade ~ At fifteen years old I lost the only person that ever mattered to me, and the day I lost my little sister in the most vile way was the exact moment I stopped living and only existed. That’s until ten years later, when I walked into an open field in Iraq to hear the most incredible voice I would ever hear in my life. One that rooted me to my spot, and ended up belonging to the most beautiful woman in the world. The only woman to ever make me feel something again, something that I thought was dead inside of me. And no matter how badly I wanted to keep her, I knew I couldn’t. Not with what I have lurking inside of me. It’s something I’ve always kept hidden. That is, until the day I unleashed it on the people who dared to hurt her. It was the one thing that gave me the strength to save us, but it was also the one thing that would remind me of why I could never have her.
Now two years later, the one girl I never thought I would ever see again, the one I have spent my days and nights craving like an addict, walks back into my life unexpectedly, giving us both the shock of our lives. And when the time comes that she needs me again, I no longer resist. Before I know it, I’m pulled into a life I thought I could never have, one that scares the shit out of me but it’s one I’m realizing I want. There is just one problem. One very big problem… She lives for the very thing I loathe, and the one thing that killed my sister… God.
When I started this book, I had a feeling I wouldn’t come out on the other side unscathed. The two previous books in this series had built the story of Cade and his love interest to unimaginable heights, so to say I was scared and excited all at once was an understatement, which is why I had a feeling I wouldn’t come out on the other side unscathed. But in true KC Lynn style, this book put me through the emotional ringer, and I loved every minute of it.
This is the story of Cade Walker and Faith who meet during Cade’s mission in Iraq. He is Navy SEAL and she is the daughter of a minister who is there on a missionary trip. Two years later, when fate brings them together again, they get a second chance to have the future that was ripped away from them, in the most unspeakable way. But circumstances of their meeting and the aftermath of this have left them both them broken in different ways.
“All I could do was stand and stare at him, still not believing that after all this time he was really there, right in front of me”
I am not sure I can describe what this book did to me. I was balling my eyes out from the beginning. The pain that Cade carries around from when he is a teenager explains so much about the strong silent badass Alpha, we have come to love in the previous books, and this book gives some insights to him, that I never saw coming. Faith, however, is everything I expected her to be as a good Christian girl. But at the same time, she is fierce in a way that makes her an ideal role model. She has overcome terrors no woman should ever endure, and yet her faith in humanity is never faltering.
This book, which is my favorite in the entire series, delivers an emotional, tough and beautiful, story of how to overcome the worst the world can do to you. This book handles some very difficult subjects, but KC Lynn treats them all with such love and care. That somehow makes them even harder to handle, in all their harsh beauty. All in all, Resisting Temptation is everything a romance should be, and it deserves no less than 5 stars from me.
It should be noted that this is the third book in a series. It is recommended that the previous books is read before this.
