He was nobody's hero until he landed in the wrong bed...
Armed with a golden retriever and a concealed weapons permit, Lena Clark is fighting for normal. She served her country, but the experience left her emotionally numb and estranged from her career-military family. Staying in Independence Falls seems like the first step to reclaiming her life until the town playboy stumbles into her bed...
Chad Summers is living his dream- helicopter logging by day and slipping between the sheets with Mrs. Right Now by night. Until his wild nights threaten his day job, leaving Chad with a choice: prove he can settle down or kiss his dream goodbye. But when he ends up in the wrong bed, the one woman in Independence Falls he can't touch offers him a tempting proposition. Chad is ready and willing to give in to the primal desire to make Lena his at night- on one condition. By day, they pretend their relationship is real.
But their connection extends beyond the bedroom, threatening to turn their sham into reality if Chad can prove he's the hero Lena needs night and day... forever.
Review: Lena has moved to Independence Falls to rebuild her life and reclaim her sense of self. She is a war Veteran suffering from a very severe case of PTSD. She has her service dog, Hero to help with her recovery, but she needs more. Chad is a playboy and he needs to clean up his image, his helicopter is grounded
He needs to tame his reputation and finding a serious girlfriend will help him get back into the cockpit of his helicopter. Chad is the first person’s touch, since she returned from service that’s touch hasn’t sent her fleeing in the opposite direction. These two strike a deal, Lena will pretend to be Chad’s girlfriend and he will work to help her overcome some of her anxiety and try to feel normal again. Chad may have the reputation of a playboy, but this playboy has a heart of gold and the patience of a saint. Lena may think she is damaged, but Chad see’s her as a beautiful warrior that may end up taking a piece of his heart.
If I could give this book more than 5 stars I would. Hero by Night by Sara Jane Stone is quite possibly the best book I’ve read this year to date (I read close to 50 books last month, so this is no small statement). Hero by Night is a heart warming romance that is full of heat and oh so sweet! I was already a fan of this series, but this book was the icing on the cake.
I LOVED this book from the first page to the last page. This is book #3 in Sara Jane Stone’s Independence Falls series, but this story can totally stand alone. However, I do recommend the first two books in this series and if you have read them you will appreciate visiting with Georgia & Eric from Full Exposure- Independence Falls Book #1, and Katie & Liam from Caught in the Act- Independence Falls Books #2. The author also does a lovely job setting up the story for Book #4 in this series Wild With You, set for release in April 2015.
As of today, the eBook of Hero by Night is only $2.99, that is a steal. This price is based on the date this review was published and is subject to change. Follow these links to snag your copy now! Amazon, Barnes & Noble, HarperCollins, iTunes
