One text can change everything.

Honor Calhoun never thought her life would ever be like the books she writes for a living. One morning while out for a run, she learns not all bad things are plots in novels. Some horrors can actually come true.

She faces off with a persistent attacker, holds her own, but in the end is taken hostage and thrown into a hole. In the middle of the woods.

But Honor didn’t go down there alone.

She took her kidnapper’s phone with her. With a spotty signal and a dying battery, her hope is slim.

Nathan Reed is an active duty Marine stationed at a small reserve base in Pennsylvania. All he wants is a calm and uneventful duty station where he can forget the memories of his time in a war-torn country.

But a single text changes everything.

Nathan becomes Honor’s only hope for survival, and he has to go against the clock, push aside his past, and take on a mission for a girl he’s never met.

Both of them want freedom… but they have to survive long enough to obtain it.

**A special thanks to all of the soldiers that keep our country safe and allow us all to be free. Without you, we wouldn't be able to read and author be able to express themselves freely**

TEXT was an eye opened and a great book. Who would have known just one simple text could change someone’s world when it’s throwing them a huge loop.

Honor is a self published author who enjoys life and freedom. She loves her fans and enjoys writing but on one calm day, her world turned upside down. On a daily run, she was faced with a terror that everyone fears and she has to fight to make it through. The one thing that no one could ever imagine is a text that was sent found her soul mate and found her a hero.

Nate was a Marine who helped, protected and served. He was a hero in all sense of the word but he was more than that to Honor. He was her “safe haven.” He was everything to her in the short amount of time that she knew him but he wasn't the only hero in this story. Honor was a heroine in her own right as well. The things that she endured from the beginning to the end were hard and she fought. She never gave up and fought through it all.

This story took you on the journey and the pain felt by Honor with the situation that she was put in. At times you didn't know what the outcome was going to be for her and Nate. Once you thought you figured out what was going to happen, something else popped up and you had to think again.

Cambria Herbert did an excellent job in the story line of this book. It makes you love all of our soldiers even more but especially the Marines. They are always the first ones in and the last ones out.
I gave this book 4 stars and would love to see more of the series and the standalone s that Cambria has written. It is well worth the read. 



Nathan flashed a grin in the darkness. I longed to see him in the light. I wanted to know the angles and planes of his face. I wanted to take in his features and truly see the man who had literally saved my life.
Nathan seemed oblivious to my thoughts as I watched him tidy up the first aid kit. Before he put it on the floor, he glanced at me. “Where else are you hurt?”
“I won’t be requiring any more Band-Aids,” I quipped.
He turned to look at me fully. His hand closed over mine and he gently took the flashlight from my grasp and clicked it off. “What about your ribs?”
“I don’t think you have anything in that kit for them.”
“Let me see them.”
“Wh-what?” My mouth ran dry. He wanted to look under my shirt?
“I want to see them.”
“That’s not really necessary—”
He studied me and then thrust his hand out in the space between us. “Hey, I’m Nathan Reed. It’s nice to meet you.”
I wanted to laugh. We were a little beyond a formal introduction. But it was fun (hey, you try being kidnapped and beaten and see what you consider fun), so I slid my hand into his. “I’m Honor.”
He held my hand a little longer than he needed to, his thumb brushing over the inside of my wrist. I caught myself right before I started purring like a cat.
That would have been hella embarrassing.
“I’m a Staff Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps. My favorite color is green, and I like football.”
“What are you doing?” I asked, thoroughly charmed by him.
“Formally introducing myself so you’ll let me under your shirt.”
I laughed. “I usually don’t let men I just met under my shirt.”
“I’m irresistible.”
I smiled. “And so modest.”
