FULL REVIEW NOW POSTED 45 STARS I LOOOOOOOVED THIS BOOK Sexy exciting addictive well written it was everything I'd hoped for The heroine was strong and sassy and the hero was this Alpha dominant wealthy CEO with a dark past I loved their banter and sexual tension and the way their shared history gave the story added layers and depth I highly recommend it for fans of the Crossfire series This is a new top favorite DThe story in HERO is about a woman Lexie who ends up working for a powerful man Caine with whom she shares a painful family history What neither of them counted on though was their intense attraction to each other and even though Caine wants to hate her that soon proves to be harder than he'd imagined “So what you get to act out some kind of vengeance by working me into an early grave”“Something like that” He smirked “It’ll be a comfortable grave though” He told me the salary and I almost passed outCaine’s eyes glittered triumphantly at my obvious excitement “As I said it comes with a price” His grim was wicked and I suddenly felt a little breathless “I’m a hard man to please And I’m also a very busy man You’ll do what I want when I want and I won’t always be nice about it In fact considering what your surname is you can pretty much guarantee I won’t be nice about it” I'm not going to lie Caine came off as a total asshole many a time throughout the book but it wasn't without reason I felt like the motivation behind his anger and assholery made sense to me I'm certainly not excusing or dismissing all his mistakes but I'm saying that I understood what prompted themI really loved that Caine and Lexie's past connection was revealed right at the beginning of the book and that made the driving force behind this story be about what they did about it as opposed to focusing on it's mystery which was something I found really different and refreshing “I wished Caine could see what I saw — that we were the same in some ways And I didn't want to be someone he hated However it was clear Caine needed me to leave him alone And I would Even if it was the absolute last thing I wanted to do” The #1 thing that stood out to me as I read was how fantastic the writing was I loved the flow of this story and I loved the way the author described the details and nuances of emotion It really got me right inside these characters' minds and allowed me to perfectly visualize the whole story as I readDespite Caine's goal to make her life miserable Lexie was eually determined to get through to him and show him that she was different than her family She truly believed that she could break down his walls In contrast Caine was totally determined to hold on to his albeit understandable grudge I loved their back and forth banter Between his obvious discomfort her small triumphs their conflicting goals but ultimately same desires this story kept me smiling chuckling and fanning myself for pages on endLuckily it became clear uite uickly that he did indeed have a heart despite how well he chose to disguise it under his antagonistic exterior But regardless there was no denying that he was “kind of honourable in a fucked up way” and one of the highlights of the book for me was seeing the way he slowly came around and the way both their relationship and attraction built alongside that change “Caine is it“Mr Carraway” I corrected myselfShe chortled “You can call him Caine sweetheart He’s not a god”“Do you think you could tell him that Because I don’t think he knows Ohhhh the sexual tension between them was SO intense It was HOT sexy like everything else in this book the writing really shone through I'd go so far as to say that this one one of the best written romances I've read Every single glance gesture action line delivery everything was perfectly described “Say you’re mine Right here right now you’re mine” he growled I have to say that I was warned pretty strongly prior to starting this book that I should be prepared for Caine to be a supreme asshole extraordinaire but maybe it’s just that I’ve read a lot of darker romances but even though he certainly had his moments I honestly found that I uite understood his behaviour It was clear based on the way he was so often apologetic that he wasn't really trying to be an ass there was just a lot of baggage carried over from his pastAnd like I said he may have made some mistakes at times but he most certainly apologized You just have to love a dominant Alpha hero who is humble enough to admit he fucked up and give a good apology He briefly closed his eyes and there was remorse written all over his face “Jesus Lex I should never have said what I said As soon as the words were out of my mouth”He lowered is head and I found my eyes caught in his “You are the last person in the world I want to hurt I'd put this book in the same category as Crossfire and Fifty Shades minus the BDSM but instead of a series this is a complete standalone story with a damaged moody powerful and dominant hero who is healed through his relationship with a woman he unexpectedly falls in love with I haven't read a Samantha Young book in uite a while but reading HERO definitely made me want to go out and catch up on every single one of her other books that I'd missed I love her writing I loved this story and it's easily a new favorite of mine A top recommendationRating 45

AffairOnly 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 againThe emotional and unforgettable new romance from the New York Times bestselling author of the On Dublin Street seri. 4 Heroic StarsFor many years Alexa believed her father was a hero Until she found out the truth about his past and discovered that he did many mistakes and the worst of them destroyed a family and left a little boy alone in the world Now one coincidental encounter puts them together Except he’s not a little boy any Caine Carraway is a self made man and billionaire CEO of his own company And he wants nothing to do with Alexa But life puts them in the same path again and they end up falling for each other Alexa wants to heal his father’s sin and make Caine happy but he’s pretty adamant on his idea that he’s not the man Alexa’s wants He’s too much broken by his past And when you fall in love with someone who refuses to admit the possibility of love how long are you willing to fight when every time you do it you’re pushed away This was a very good reading I probably read this book in about 10 minutes It’s a slight different style than Samantha usually writes but t’s amazingly written and only proves that she can be very versatile with her stories and always deliver a good romance story The only reason I’m not giving it five starts is because some attitudes of the hero and his constant indecision which in my opinion brought a lot of unnecessary angst to a book that already had enough drama All those angst wasn’t really necessary However if you’re in the mood for a steamy and heartwarming with some drama and angst thrown in the middle this is a great choice Rating 4 Stars Characters Development This was one of those rare cases where I liked the heroine than the hero Yes there are a few moments where Alexa can almost be considered a doormat and believe me in those moments I just wanted to beat the heck out of her but she was relentless in proving her love and that was something pretty good to see Caine was good too he was sweet possessive and charismatic when he wanted to be but sometimes he could be a complete asshole as well I spent half the book agitated with him and his refusal in seeing what was right in front of him I usually have no problem with a little “assholeness” from the heroes but there were some moments when we was real rude and disrespectful and I can’t let that slide There are some behaviors simply unacceptable no matter how hotsexyrichwhatever the hero may be and unfortunately that book had some of those moments I loved LOVED Effie she was an amazing fake “grandma” and Henry was great as well I wish we could have a book about him and Nadia Steam Hot Sensible Subjects view spoiler Drug Abuse hide spoiler

Caine CarrawayEven though she had nothing to do with her father's decisions Lexie wants to explain to Caine who she is and that she's nothing like her father Unfortunately her impulsive decision doesn't uite pan out the way she wants when the only reaction she gets from Caine is disgust and the loss of her job in the processLexie is definitely one tough cookie This was the thing that I really loved about her character She never crumbles under the weight of her troubles she faces them head on And that's precisely what she does when she pushes her way into Caine's office the next day and demands he hears her out She'll beg if she has to if it gets him to call her boss and get her job back and to see that she's nothing like her fatherBut Caine has a different plan in mind He refuses to see past the sins of Lexie's father and he can make her pay for itin the form of a job She'll no longer be jobless but she'll work for himCaine is a very intense character and he definitely doesn't shy away from making Lexie feel like she's below him Luckily Lexie has a backbone and never fails to give as good as she gets Tomorrow you'll receive your employment contracts Once you sign those I'm your boss When I didn't answer he said That means you act the way I want you to act That means you shelve your attitude and the twenty uestionsShould I shelve those next to 'personality' Thus begins their intricate push and pull I think this may have been my favorite part of the book The banter between Caine and Lexie was fantastic Caine was a straight up asshole at times and Lexie always pushed his buttons right back But beneath the obviously anger there was also this undercurrent of lust Samantha Young did such a fantastic job writing that in without making it be too obvious or too sudden The chemistry between them though felt right away is a slow burn And when they finally give into the inevitableCaine doesn't thaw right away not even close The push and pull continues for a very large chunk of the book There are times where even though you see that he's drawn to Lexie he's still an asshole I don't know what this is you're trying to do but you and I are not the same He took another step back from me And I am not for you I'm not your white knight I'm just the guy who wanted to fuck you I really enjoyed that part of the book though The progression of their relationship considering their past is a very realistic one and I appreciated that It takes Caine a while to really see Lexie and who she truly is and Lexie never gives up on him The chemistry between them is absolutely sizzling Miss Young can definitely write one incredibly sexy love scene This would have been a solid five star read for me if not for one small thing; Caine's 'secret' There's a lot of build up to why he is the way he is and why he doesn't believe he can be the man for her He continuously pushes her away because of this But I have to say when the entire thing was finally revealedI was left underwhelmed It was this feeling of 'that's it That's what it was' For lack of a better word it just seemed a little lame Luckily that was such a small part and it didn't really take away from my enjoyment of the books as a whole I definitely really enjoyed this one and highly recommend to any fans of sexy contemporary romance that like their heroes a little intense with a dash of asshole ;
