Summary


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…




The verdict


This was my first Samantha Young title and having heard so much about it in the past one month, I had high expectations before even starting the book. I fear my expectations. Dread them really.

But I'll have to say Hero did not disappoint me in the slightest. I immensely enjoyed the chemistry between Alexa and CaineAlexa is probably one of my favorite smartass heroines. Witty and sassy, I loved how she handled Caine's annoying behavior (where I would have easily whacked his skull open with a chair or something). Caine was more of an acquired taste for me. Very very annoying at the beginning. But as the story progressed, I totally loved the him.

The complexity of the plot kept me turning the pages, and the funny bits had me smiling. Young's style of writing is highly addictive, and I've just added like six more of her books to my goodreads TBR pile. 

Definitely a recommended read. Go read it now. Thank me later.

Happy reading!
