Hero by Samantha Young

I first fell in love with Samantha Young’s writing style after reading On Dublin Street. It was so well written and wonderfully put together that I immediately became a fan. Now an all new book is getting ready to hit the streets. Psssst….It’s just as good!

Alexa and Caine have such a steamy, intense build up that I was up ‘til the wee hours. It’s a strong, impulsive connection between these two that just keeps building: angry office encounters, smartass retorts, and lusty up-against-the wall rebuttals. Fabulous!

All sexiness aside, the heart of the story is two people recovering from the mistakes of their parents. Each has built their own walls in order to protect themselves and the lives they live. Learning that Alexa and Caine’s past are horrifically linked together changes the initial chemistry they both feel. Why must children pay for the sins of the fathers? They don’t, but understanding that isn’t easy. Chemistry is chemistry, and try as you might there is no changing that.

Here’s the breakdown: So, this first 75% you had me hook line and sinker. The next part: a little too must angsty for my taste and not enough backbone on Alexa’s part, in my opinion. The ending? Well, that just kicked it up a notch. Now we’re cooking! :)

All in all, a great 4 star read with the heat I had forgotten Samantha Young does so well!

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
