The Hero Series-Laura Kaye
Her Forbidden Hero (Book 1)
I stumbled across this book by accident and how thank am I that I did. We get to follow Alyssa Scott and Marco Vieri on their journey from their past, present and future. We also got a glimpse of Alyssa's brother, Brady (Soldiers, uniform.... need I say more) but putting that to one side this was an emotional read, especially when finding out what happened to Marco during his time at war and then what Alyssa and Brady had to contend with at the hands of their father. This book still had its many a hot moments especially between the two main characters, Alyssa and Marco but also moments when you really wanted to hit their heads together to make them see they were meant to be and that they both felt the same way about each other, they just had to say it. All in all it was an enjoyable, emotionally moving and touching story to be able to follow.
"After all he'd been in the United States Army Special Forces, fuck you very much. You might take the man out of the SF, you couldn't take the SF out of the man. He'd been up against some of the world's meanest and toughest. So goddamn straight he could work his way round one young woman."
One Night With A Hero (Book 2)
So.... at this point in time I'm making waffles with cream and knocking on my bedroom wall, in the hope my hero knocks back. Following on from Her Forbidden Hero, I knew I was in for something amazing with this story. We got to learn more about Brady Scott, the older brother of Alyssa and best friend of Marco. We got to find out more about his'daddy issues' with Joseph, which strangely left me with mixed feelings, as it changed my opinion from book one. Then my emotions and interests in this story went full pelt when he saw Joss Daniels, prepare for a full on, attention grabbing and heart warming story that had me in tears at the end but many a oh my god tears during, trust me. Meeting the Vieri family had an odd effect on me, I found myself thanking them through my Kindle for all that they had done. Right knocking isn't work, I wonder if there is a Santa around.....
"Thank god the Power Rangers showed up when they did, or he wouldn't have been responsible for his actions."
"Oh. It's an E. E. Cummings quote: 'It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are'."
