Hero by Samatha Young

Samantha Young has this way in her writing, to get my mind and my heart so immersed in her plots… I keep being surprised. I don’t want to get used to it, so, Samantha… keep rocking it.


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…



I bet when each and every one of you lovely readers picks up HERO to read, you’ll think you know how the plot develops. And you may be on point for parts of it. But not all.

Caine and Alexa’s lives were entwined since they were children, but they never could have, and never should have known about each other. Tragedy and the actions taken after it, and a seemingly innocent photoshoot of the rich and famous brings them together and into a pretty explosive relationship that gets them both wonderfully bonded and in incredible danger.

I loved the characters, Alexa especially. She’s a wonderful, strong, independent woman. Somewhat insecure, but with the right push she’ll get to the stars. And don’t get me started on Henry and Effie. I won’t say another word about the, just that they’re both priceless to the storyline.

Samantha Young’s writing is eye level, jabs straight through to the gut. Her books are page turners, get to the last page and swoon and swoon and swoon.

My rating: 4star




I read, review, flail and swoon.
