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…

When I knew Samantha is going to release a new book, I got so freaking excited because its safe to say that she's my favorite contemporary romance author -- alongside with Julie James, Christina Lauren and Lauren Layne

Hero is great. It cant defeat Before Jamaica Lane (I STILL CANT GET OVER HOW GOOD BJL IS ISTG) but its still awesome nevertheless. Its got a pretty cliche plot, since I read a freaking lot of books in this genre. the whole office romance, personal issues, tall, dark and handsome guy where nothing fazes him and got women swooning over him everywhere, the smart ass lady who beats the guy's intimidating demeanor, smoking hot romance, more issues, same old same old. 

Butttttttt what keep me going is because its Samantha Young we're talking about here. She always has her way in writing amazing books. AND BECAUSE OF CAINE AND ALEXA. Enough said. 

I cant help thinking though that Hero is like a mixture of 50 Shades of Grey and Beautiful Bastard. Or is it just me ?

What pissed me off right now is that I NEED THE SECOND BOOK LIKE RIGHT NOW ! (there should be one about henry righttttttt ???? /wriggling eyebrows/) Im dying to read about Henry and Nadia bcs i have the feeling its gonna be funny and flirty as hell !!!! 

ODS is one of my favorite series ever so i hope i'll love this new series just as much. Kudos to you, Samantha Young

“A man like me isn’t capable of being your fucking white knight. …

I felt the anger boil up inside me. “I’m not looking for a hero!”
He flinched at the emotion cracking my words.
“I never asked for that … I just wanted you, because despite what you might think, I see you. And no, you’re no fucking white knight, but you’re what I want.”
