Peek Inside Fragmented Loyalty

In an effort to leave my past behind me, I’ve hacked my way into a spot in a hostage rescue team’s training program. The complication? Harvard, my ideal man and my instructor. But my past isn’t letting me off that easily. A series of freak accidents—deadly accidents—sends Class Alpha into a tailspin. And the more I get to know Harvard, the more I realize his past is as troubled as mine. Am I the cause of this chaos...or is he?

All I want is to leave my past of criminal hacking behind. Oh, and ditch the blackmailer who has been dogging my every move for the last three years.

The plan: Hack my way into being part of Class Alpha, a training program for a secretive organization that rescues hostages the government can’t or won’t go after. Save the world and make enough money to pay back my blackmailer—solves all my problems, right?

The complication: Sweet, nerdy, and unbearably sexy Eric “Harvard” Physick. Harvard is my ideal man, but he’s also my instructor. Seriously a no-go, except we can’t seem to keep our hands off each other.

My blackmailer isn’t willing to let me off the hook, though, and a series of freak accidents—deadly accidents—sends Class Alpha into a tailspin. And the more I get to know Harvard, I start to realize his past is just as troubled as mine.

Am I the cause of this chaos...or is he?


Thrilling, sexy, and fast-paced, I really enjoyed Fragmented Loyalty!” -Waves of Fiction

NERD LOVE! Is there anything better than two bright, brainy, beautiful people with the coolest t-shirts falling in love?!?! I loved the magic that was Harvard and Sami. I loved this addition to this wonderful series and look forward to more.” -Lori G., Goodreads

5 Stars for being unput-downable.” -Paula W., Goodreads

“This is the first book of Tonya Burrows I have read and WOW! Hackers, secret hostage rescues, nerdiness, love, trainee camp, it's all here. I finished it in 2 sittings because I couldn't put it down.” -Leena H., Goodreads

“The story has everything I'd expect from a Hornet novel, great romance, lots of intrigue and a nice amount of action. I'm enjoying getting to know the rest of the Alpha Class and I'm very happy that Wolfe's book is up next.” -Feeling Fictional

Fragmented Loyalty is action packed with an intense story line and some super steamy scenes; I cannot wait to see what happens next in this series.” -Danielle F.

After getting caught as an “hacktivist”, and paying for her crimes, Samira gets a second chance to use her computer genius skills for good with the group HORNET, a private security group that specializes in rescuing hostages.

3.5 stars

This is a spin-off from the HORNET series. It starts with Harvard, their tech guru. It was a very slow start. I looked down and thought I might be half-way or more, but was only at 33%. It did pick up shortly after that. I loved Harvard/Eric and Sami/Gigi interactions ...more

This is the first book of Tonya Burrows I have read and WOW! Hackers, secret hostage rescues, nerdiness, love, trainee camp, it's all here. I loved the journey into a world I know nothing about. There are SO MANY secrets being kept given these two people are hackers. All of these individuals in the ...more

It's been a couple of years since Tonya Burrows published the last book in the Hornet series but I was always hoping we'd get a book for Harvard so I was really happy when I found out about this new spin off series Hornet: Class Alpha, starting with Fragmented Loyalty. Although this series is focusi ...more

Tonya Burrows is a new to me author, and I'm in love big time! Fragmented Loyalty is everything that I love in my books for real. I wish I had read the original series before this spin-off, but I'll rectify that immediately. Sami is a young woman, who is a tech genius & can hack her way into anythin ...more

Fragmented Loyalty is the first book in the spin-off series Hornet: Class Alpha by Tonya Burrows. It had been a while since I have read a book written by this author so I found supporting characters backstories that I was not familiar with totally. However, it did not stop me from enjoying this one ...more

By Ga Books LoverX February 24, 2020

Fragmented Loyalty is a HUGE whirlwind. I adored the blurb and wanted to read the book as soon as possible. I have always been a fan of white hat hackers and loved how Sami wanted to take control of her life by doing what she was born to do. I will let you know that there are multiple jaw dropping b ...more

Love this first book in the Class Alpha series. Almost missed it, but then noticed the HORNET name on the cover. I remember Harvard and Sami too, from one of two of the last books in the Hornet series. ...more

Action, suspense, a forbidden romance, set in a military style secret organization training program. Yums!

Tonya Burrows has become a favorite author of mine after reading her HORNET and Wilde Security series, so it was a no-brainer for me to request this spin-off title as soon as I saw it on NetGalley. I loved Harvard since reading the HORNET series so I was glad to see that he was getting his own book. ...more

When I pick up a HORNET book, I expect flash and awe. I expect tough guys with tender hearts, underneath all those muscles, to be running around with weapons. There are always fights to win and their true soul mates to conquer. But throughout this series the steady hand of tech genius Harvard is a c ...more

By Linda February 15, 2020

Loved this book! This is a spin off from the HORNET series, focusing on training the next generation for HORNET. Sami is a young woman who was arrested as a teen for hacking and sent to juvie for three years. When she was released, her family disowned her. This left her few options, so when HORNET c ...more

Suspenseful storyline! This is my first read from this author and I definitely enjoyed it! Thrown the book as a child for hacking, Sami is disowned and unsure where to go even after being given money by a stranger to survive. Joining the Hornets, she’s excited to turn her life around, still waiting ...more

I received an ARC in exchange for a review.

Although this book is about one of the main characters from the HORNET books (Eric "Harvard" Physick), it is the first in a spin off about the Class Alpha HORNET trainees. It is written in new adult style, which for me was a little more difficult t ...more

Samira's IT skills are a force to be reckoned with but as a teenager those same skills turned her life upside down. She now has her life on the right path and is excited to be part of the Hornet team however her past may destroy the progress she has made and betray those she has come to care the mos ...more

I've been a big fan of the HORNET series since the start and was excited to see a new story being released, but I have to say, I did find it a little hard to get into. Still, once the story got going, and I got used to the new writing style, I was gripped and I really liked the blend of old and ...more

By Lissanne March 08, 2020

The HORNET series is one of my favourite RS series of all time, and I enjoy every single book in it. This one was no exception. Harvard is the IT expert and youngest member of the team, but he's never felt as though he's valued as much as the others. It isn't until this book that he learns exactly h ...more

This is the book I’ve been waiting what feels like forever for and it was so worth the wait. I loved Sami and Harvard’s story!

Tonya Burrows absolutely nailed the feels, drama and chemistry with this story. I was captivated from the first lines, to the last that left me wiping happy tears away.

Tonya Burrows has a new series, HORNET: Class Alpha, and Fragmented Loyalty is the first book. I admit that I love a good action packed romantic suspense. Add in a secret organization, a hacker or two, and I'm ready to start turning the pages.

I enjoyed reading Harvard and Sami's story. If I felt the ...more

Intriguing read.

This is now a new series with Alpha Class. It ties with the Honor series with the new Alpha class. I enjoyed the story and wow the world of hacking was great fun to peek at. So the plot was interesting though the motivation behind Sami’s action didn’t feel believable to me. My main ...more
