Review: Hero by Samantha Young
Publication Date: 3rd Feb 2015
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…
My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
I really enjoyed this book. I liked the characters, their chemistry and the sparks that fly when they collide. The story was spunky, angsty and hot with fully developed characters that kept me turning pages. I liked Caine and Alexa on their own and I LOVED them together, the only thing that annoyed me was how long the 'back and forth' lasted but I enjoyed the passionate frustration that came with it so... Meh.
The book is dual pov, well written and well worth a read!
