The emotional and unforgettable new romance from the New York Times bestselling author of the On Dublin Street series.
Alexa Holland’s father was her hero—until her shocking discovery that she and her mother weren’t his only family. Ever since, Alexa has worked to turn her life in a different direction and forge her own identity outside of his terrible secrets,. But when she meets a man who’s as damaged by her father’s mistakes as she is, Alexa must help him.
Caine Carraway wants nothing to do with Alexa’s efforts at redemption, but it’s not so easy to push her away. Determined to make her hate him, he brings her to the edge of her patience and waits for her to walk away. But his actions only draw them together and, despite the odds, they begin an intense and explosive affair.
Only Caine knows he can never be the white knight that Alexa has always longed for. And when they’re on the precipice of danger, he finds he’ll do anything to protect either one of them from being hurt again…
Hero was WICKED!
Samantha Young keeps getting better and better. Seriously, I cannot get enough of her. She sure knows how to keep us flipping those pages. From the moment I opened Hero, I knew I was in for a crazy-amazing ride. She sure knows how to hit the sweet spot. No wonder her fans, like myself, love her so much. So fans, prepare to be blown away. This is Samantha at her best... yet.
Hero… Hero is the story of Caine and Alexa. Two unfortunate souls broken by the same man. Along with a history that keeps them apart. Resentments are high. But when attraction meets, these two cannot keep away from each other. As they try hard to keep it cool - they fall for each other faster than a cannonball. Ah, the beauty of love. Only love can defeat such tragedy - any tragedy at that.
Even though Caine made Alexa’s life miserable, the way she presents herself... you will love Alexa. She fought back to keep calm. She sure is one of a kind. Caine and Alexa were meant to be. And damn, these two sure do know how to bump heads. Which was the ONE *winks* of the most entertaining things about this book. You will laughed with them. These two will keep you amused. But if you’re looking for a hot-steamy book to read, then Hero is the one to read.
There - I said it with no spoilers. You have to read Hero. A must. It’s so good that is great. So stay away from spoilers and trust me with this one. Go in blindly. Hero is funny, sweet and sexy, yup, all in one book. The perfect book for lovers of romance.
