This was a very good reading I probably read this book in about 10 minutes It’s a slight different style than Samantha usually writes but t’s amazingly written and only proves that she can be very versatile with her stories and always deliver a good romance story The only reason I’m not giving it five starts is because some attitudes of the hero and his constant indecision which in my opinion brought a lot of unnecessary angst to a book that already had enough drama All those angst wasn’t really necessary However if you’re in the mood for a steamy and heartwarming with some drama and angst thrown in the middle this is a great choice Rating 4 Stars Characters Development This was one of those rare cases where I liked the heroine than the hero Yes there are a few moments where Alexa can almost be considered a doormat and believe me in those moments I just wanted to beat the heck out of her but she was relentless in proving her love and that was something pretty good to see Caine was good too he was sweet possessive and charismatic when he wanted to be but sometimes he could be a complete asshole as well I spent half the book agitated with him and his refusal in seeing what was right in front of him I usually have no problem with a little “assholeness” from the heroes but there were some moments when we was real rude and disrespectful and I can’t let that slide There are some behaviors simply unacceptable no matter how hotsexyrichwhatever the hero may be and unfortunately that book had some of those moments I loved LOVED Effie she was an amazing fake “grandma” and Henry was great as well I wish we could have a book about him and Nadia Steam Hot Sensible Subjects view spoiler Drug Abuse hide spoiler

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 Ale FULL REVIEW NOW POSTED 45 STARS I LOOOOOOOVED THIS BOOK Sexy exciting addictive well written it was everything I'd hoped for The heroine was strong and sassy and the hero was this Alpha dominant wealthy CEO with a dark past I loved their banter and sexual tension and the way their shared history gave the story added layers and depth I highly recommend it for fans of the Crossfire series This is a new top favorite DThe story in HERO is about a woman Lexie who ends up working for a powerful man Caine with whom she shares a painful family history What neither of them counted on though was their intense attraction to each other and even though Caine wants to hate her that soon proves to be harder than he'd imagined “So what you get to act out some kind of vengeance by working me into an early grave?”“Something like that” He smirked “It’ll be a comfortable grave though” He told me the salary and I almost passed outCaine’s eyes glittered triumphantly at my obvious excitement “As I said it comes with a price” His grim was wicked and I suddenly felt a little breathless “I’m a hard man to please And I’m also a very busy man You’ll do what I want when I want and I won’t always be nice about it In fact considering what your surname is you can pretty much guarantee I won’t be nice about it” I'm not going to lie Caine came off as a total asshole many a time throughout the book but it wasn't without reason I felt like the motivation behind his anger and assholery made sense to me I'm certainly not excusing or dismissing all his mistakes but I'm saying that I understood what prompted themI really loved that Caine and Lexie's past connection was revealed right at the beginning of the book and that made the driving force behind this story be about what they did about it as opposed to focusing on it's mystery which was something I found really different and refreshing “I wished Caine could see what I saw — that we were the same in some ways And I didn't want to be someone he hated However it was clear Caine needed me to leave him alone And I would Even if it was the absolute last thing I wanted to do” The #1 thing that stood out to me as I read was how fantastic the writing was I loved the flow of this story and I loved the way the author described the details and nuances of emotion It really got me right inside these characters' minds and allowed me to perfectly visualize the whole story as I readDespite Caine's goal to make her life miserable Lexie was eually determined to get through to him and show him that she was different than her family She truly believed that she could break down his walls In contrast Caine was totally determined to hold on to his albeit understandable grudge I loved their back and forth banter Between his obvious discomfort her small triumphs their conflicting goals but ultimately same desires this story kept me smiling chuckling and fanning myself for pages on endLuckily it became clear uite uickly that he did indeed have a heart despite how well he chose to disguise it under his antagonistic exterior But regardless there was no denying that he was “kind of honourable in a fucked up way” and one of the highlights of the book for me was seeing the way he slowly came around and the way both their relationship and attraction built alongside that change “Caine is it?“Mr Carraway” I corrected myselfShe chortled “You can call him Caine sweetheart He’s not a god”“Do you think you could tell him that? Because I don’t think he knows Ohhhh the sexual tension between them was SO intense It was HOT sexy like everything else in this book the writing really shone through I'd go so far as to say that this one one of the best written romances I've read Every single glance gesture action line delivery everything was perfectly described “Say you’re mine Right here right now you’re mine” he growled I have to say that I was warned pretty strongly prior to starting this book that I should be prepared for Caine to be a supreme asshole extraordinaire but maybe it’s just that I’ve read a lot of darker romances but even though he certainly had his moments I honestly found that I uite understood his behaviour It was clear based on the way he was so often apologetic that he wasn't really trying to be an ass there was just a lot of baggage carried over from his pastAnd like I said he may have made some mistakes at times but he most certainly apologized You just have to love a dominant Alpha hero who is humble enough to admit he fucked up and give a good apology He briefly closed his eyes and there was remorse written all over his face “Jesus Lex I should never have said what I said As soon as the words were out of my mouth”He lowered is head and I found my eyes caught in his “You are the last person in the world I want to hurt I'd put this book in the same category as Crossfire and Fifty Shades minus the BDSM but instead of a series this is a complete standalone story with a damaged moody powerful and dominant hero who is healed through his relationship with a woman he unexpectedly falls in love with I haven't read a Samantha Young book in uite a while but reading HERO definitely made me want to go out and catch up on every single one of her other books that I'd missed I love her writing I loved this story and it's easily a new favorite of mine A top recommendationRating 45 stars Standalone Adult romance For of my reviews book news and updates✦ Main blog Aestas Book Blog✦ Facebook Blog Page✦ Twitter ✦ Subscribe by email

Hero Author Samantha YouXa must help himCaine 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 4 45 starsI had a blast reading this book It’s got the perfect mix of steam angst and humor and the writing was extremely addicting I couldn’t put the book down I honestly believe it’s one of those books where it doesn’t matter what mood you’re in – you could pick it up anytime and be easily swept away by the captivating story and charming characters But at the same time I want to warn you to not go in with any expectations that this’ll be like the On Dublin Street books because it’s not and that’s a good thing This one’s a fun sexy yet at times emotional enemies to lovers office romance that just about had a little bit of everything sprinkled in the story and is a winner for meSo a little bit about the storythe heroine Alexa Holland is an assistant to a famous photographer and in one of those shoots meets the hero Caine Carraway an aloof CEO who shares a twisted and messed up past with her A tiny altercation happens and before you know it Alexa is fired from her job and becomes Caine’s personal assistant Frankly I struggled a little with this first part of the story as I didn’t uite understand the motivations behind their actions – especially Alexa’s – but the I read the I started to get itBecause she’s the only one who knows what it’s like to have her father destroy not only her family but Caine’s as wellthat kind of similarity between them gives them a bond and as much as he dislikes her and is reluctant to admit it Caine knows that fact well too From this moment on everything I read was 5 star book material I love that even though Caine was a mega jerk to her Alexa took it all in stride and wasn’t easily intimidated by him and had counterattacks of her own There’s an underlying attraction there but it’s not acted upon immediately love that Instead I got to read how a genuine camaraderie developed between the two first and it was so fun to see them banter Seriously I lost count the number of times I laughed The romance and the steam gradually built up from all that and when it did blow up it was explosive One thing I can always count on this author to do is write scorching HOT sex scenes and she delivered again hereThen the story took a turn down angst road and for those that know my book tastes you know that angst scares the crap out of me I like to hurt when I read but not too much you know? And I have to say I adored the pushpull dynamic Alexa and Caine had here Any and all drama wasn’t over the top yet it was completely believable because of their intertwined pasts and loads of baggage they were each carrying They both settled into a friends with benefits relationship and it both warmed and stabbed at my heart to see them struggle with their growing feelings for each other Caine pushed Alexa pulled and the cycle repeatedThere was a lot of tension between the two but not to the point where it was frustrating and the main reason is Alexa She’s persistent know what she wants and will make the effort to get it in this case it’s Caine I’m a huge sucker for strong minded heroines and she embodied that sentiment perfectly There’s actually a duality to her character – she’s a people pleaser yet she won’t let their demands get the best of her either It’s not to say Caine was a total layover because he wasn’t – he was dominant and aggressive when need be but also had a layer of vulnerability he showed Alexa And together they burned up the sheets But they’d also have the sweetest and most meaningful conversations too I could really tell that they were two characters that complemented each other perfectlyBy the time I got to the final uarter of the book I was a little surprised with a certain plot twist It wasn’t bad at all and it actually added a suspenseful uality to the story but it just felt out of the blue I had a disconnect with the plot there simply because it was unexpected One thing I have to mention is that this author writes such realistic stories Her characters may be rich and famous but they have the same problems just like the average person does If anything her stories reminds me that birds poop people fart and not every sex position works on the first try LOL Things I usually nit pick about I don’t have the urge to in this book The small issues I did have were minor and in no way derailed me from enjoying the story The sizzling chemistry the witty banter the laugh out loud hilarious scenes and of course the romance were all well done I only wish there was Hero is an adult contemporary romance standalone unrelated to this author’s other books ARC provided by Penguin Intermix via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review
