Reece (The Hawks #5) by Jennie Lynn Roberts
She’s everything he doesn’t want. Honorable. Beautiful. Strong… wait, what?
Reece lost everything. Twice. Now, he finally has a chance to earn back his place with the Hawks. There’s only one problem: he has to work with Daena. He doesn’t trust her. He doesn’t even like her. And if his beast would just shut up about how perfect she is, that would really help.
If there’s one kind of man Daena’s learned to stay well away from, it’s a handsome liar. But the more Reece reveals—the more she glimpses the vulnerable soul he’s hidden for so long—the closer she wants to get.
But now is not a good time to get close to anyone. Reece and Daena are undercover on a dangerous mission. They’re surrounded by enemies and one wrong move could mean catastrophe.
Can they let go of the past and find a future, standing strong together? Or will they fall, and take the kingdom down with them?
Reece, the final book in The Hawks series, is a sexy, enemies to lovers, adult fantasy romance full of swords, shifters (kind of), and tons of action. But fair warning: This book is intended only for readers who love fast-paced adventure, soul mates and found family—and characters who curse when they fight for survival. If that’s you, happy reading.

5 out of 5 (exceptional)
REECE is the fifth and final book in The Hawks series, and I'm not emotionally ready for this series to be over. It just can't be! 😭 There is still so much I want to know. And I love the world they have built/are building. It simply can't be over!!!
Okay, so moving past my emotional breakdown, what can I say about this book? Reece has been a character that has tugged on my heartstrings from the very beginning, but I only knew part of his story. Now I know it all and yep, it broke my heart. Ms Roberts has a way of transferring emotions onto the page (or screen) that is second-to-none. I love how she draws me into the characters, learning what makes them tick, their foibles, and their quirks. Daena is strong, certainly stronger than she thought she was. She had a harsh lesson to learn, but learn it she did, and she won't make the same mistakes twice.
This book is full of action and suspense. Andred is clever, but will Daena and Reece figure out his game plan before hundreds die? I won't say as I don't want to inadvertently give anything away. I will say I couldn't put the book down, completely hooked on the story.
This whole series has been a fantastic world to visit, full of love, loyalty, and found family. I'm just not ready for it to be over. It's not, is it? Please tell me there's more to come! I may just have to return to the beginning and read it all again, just to tide me over.
Do I recommend it? Oh, hell yes!!! But do yourself a favour, and start at the beginning! Tristan will thank you for it! Or maybe Kaden will if you go right back. Personally, I'd start with Kaden to get the full experience.

Jennie Lynn Roberts believes that every strong, kickass heroine should have control of her own story, a swoony hero to support her at every turn, and a guaranteed happily ever after. Because that doesn’t always happen in real life, she began creating her own worlds that work just the way they should. And she hasn’t looked back since.
Jennie would rather be writing than doing anything else—except for spending time with her gorgeous family, of course. But when she isn’t building vibrant new worlds, she can be found nattering with friends, baking up a storm, or strolling in the woods around her home in England.
