In the dangerous world of drugs, things can turn deadly in an instant...

Amanda Livingston is stuck in a rut with her, boyfriend, Scott Dosser. Knowing only that she'll never be the one to satisfy him, she doesn't suspect the true evil lurking behind his sexy smile...until it's too late.

A battle with drug lords into human trafficking...

Former Navy SEAL, Rafe Carver, was trained to not miss details and something about this couple Instincts on high alert, Rafe digs to find the truth. Which turns out to be more than even he bargained for. Rafe will stop at nothing to keep naive Amanda alive preferably tucked safely between the sheets of his bed.

Two strong wills collide...

Rafe thought the biggest danger was the cartel, little did he envision the sultry Amanda, was as hard-headed and feisty as she was sexy. Convincing her of the dangers surrounding proves most challenging of all and there isn't time for error or argument. Surviving each may be even more tricky than outmaneuvering the men after her.

Amanda has allowed her boyfriend to belittle her for the last time. This is the last night he will be in her life. That is if she can find the courage to kick him to the curb. But has she waited too late to find her backbone?
Men of Honor: Rafe by Marteeka Karland is a spinoff of her Carver Brother series. I loved the Carver brothers and with the first in the Louisville Heroes series Ms. Karland shows that integrity and honor run deep in this family’s DNA. Rafe isn’t sure he even likes Amanda when he first meets her. She is in deep and doesn’t seem to understand the danger surrounding her. I love that even as Rafe is prickish with her he still protects her. In spite of his disdain for perceived slights, he does the right thing. I loved his willingness to apologize when he is wrong. I also liked Amanda. She is young but finally fed up. She is aware that things need to change and determined to make those changes. Together Rafe and Amanda have a chemistry that is believable even if the timing couldn’t be worse. I love that even as their relationship grew at warp speed it felt natural. This is a quick read but didn’t feel rushed. I like the connection between the characters and felt that Ms. Karland gave us a solid beginning not only for this spin off but also for Amanda and Rafe.
