Hero by Samantha Young

Alexa Holland’s father was her hero—until her shocking discovery that her mother and she 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....

5 I love me some Caine Stars

I love the Dublin series (I’ve read every single one), but I was really happy to see a new Samantha Young book that isn’t related.

I feel like Samantha Young is going back to her roots. We all love On Dublin Street and Hero reminds me of it

Alexa has bad family history. Long story short her Papa did something really bad and it affected Caine. Caine does not like Alexa’s family and he doesn’t like Alexa.

Alexa works as an assistant to a photographer, who happens to be shooting Caine. Caine doesn’t want to work with Alexa and refuses to the do the shoot and Alexa gets fired!

I love the way Hero starts out. I was grinning ear to ear and I couldn’t stop reading. I found it all VERY VERY VERY cute. Very much like On Dublin Street.

You get a little history to why Caine hates Alexa so much and its valid reason. I get it. I hate grudges that have no reason, but this one does. So Alexa doesn’t have a job and she’s really ticked off by Caine. She shows up at his office to let him know she’s sorry for her family’s actions.

Caine feels so sorry for Alexa, that he hires her as his personal assistant. Alexa is strap for cash and accepts.

I love this story line! Caine hates Alexa, but Alexa is Caine’s new PA Come on, it’s beautiful.

I love the tension and dynamics between Caine and Alexa. Caine is a horrible boss. He makes Alexa run around town doing mind-less errands and he even calls her on weekends! Alexa’s reaction is adorable too. She’s a little snappy, but she is still the perfect PA.

Of course lots more stuff happens. Secrets come out, other characters are involved and emotions are spilling all over the place.

Hero is a very fast pace book and I enjoyed it a lot. I felt like I was getting the cute Samantha Young book I crave, but of course with a touch of angst.

You will always get that one character that frustrates you a bit, but we wouldn’t have it any other way right?

READ IT if you are a Dublin Fan.
