Today I am delighted to part of the Blog Tour for Hero by Samantha Young with a review. All the other tour stops are listed below, so please do check out their blogs for some other great content.


Having previous read Samantha's On Dublin Street book and loving it so much, I jumped at the chance to read her latest stand alone book, Hero.
Hero was actually better than I expected it to be. It was just the right amount of hot and steamy with some brilliantly flawed and head strong main characters. 
Alexa Holland thought her Dad was her Hero until she discovered what he did all those year ago. So when Alexa meets the man whose world was torn apart by her Dad, she tries to make amends, but Caine Caraway is having none of it. He tries to make Alexa's life as difficult as possible, but they both can't deny what they feel for one another. But only Caine knows that he can never be Alexa's Knight in shining armour.
Hero is an incredibly addictive read. Once I had started, it was hard to put this one down. The heat between Alexa and Caine is undeniable and it makes for some seriously steamy reading. Not only this, but both characters are brilliantly vivid and their personalities jump off the page. Alexa or better known as Lexie is an incredibly headstrong, independent woman, who doesn't let anyone mess with her. I thought she was amazing with the way she dealt with Caine's moodiness and his general way of treating her; she is one determined woman! Alexa also has a past that haunts her and lots of mistakes that wrecked lives, and she just wants to make it better. Alexa has got to be one of my all time favourite heroines with everything she has to deal with and her refusal to backed down. Caine is detestable at the start, but I liked how his character is unravelled as the story develops and the layers that start to come away.
The only thing I would have liked was for the story to have perhaps been a bit shorter. I think it could have reached its climax a bit earlier, but that's just me.
I absolutely loved the plot twist in Hero, it was completely unexpected and added even more brilliant depth to the story. 
Hero was a steamy, engaging and electric read with a lot of depth which I loved.
