Review ~ Not a Hero by Sarah Robinson

Not a Hero
eARC received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: October 4th 2016

Former Marine, Miles Kydd, is trying to readjust to civilian life after ending his career and returning to his small home town when he learned his father was diagnosed with a terminal illness. Once the town hero and star quarterback, Miles no longer feels like the man he was, or who he’s expected to be—possibly because his demons have followed him home from Afghanistan.

Meeting Zoe Brooke, his father’s live-in nurse, gives Miles the slightest glimmer of hope that he can still find happiness despite the dark secrets he holds inside. The chemistry between them is undeniable, and together they are explosive—in more ways than one.

A helper at her core, Zoe is more than willing to care for Miles’s heart, but not at the expense of her own, and she’s not afraid to tell him that. She knows what having a painful past is like, and she wants to help him with his, if he’ll let her.

Things get complicated fast when Miles realizes burying his secrets isn’t actually the same as healing from them and if he wants the girl, he’s going to have to tell her the truth—the one thing he can’t do.

My Opinion

This was an enjoyable read about two lost characters who were struggling with past events coming together. I've never read anything by this author, but I'm dying for another book in this series.

Not A Hero was an interesting read that kept me hooked the entire way through. I felt for Miles and I liked that he didn't see himself as a hero and rejected the idea. I felt for him and what he'd gone through and I wanted him to get help. Similarly, Zoe compliment his character with her need to care and fix things. She had a past of her own, but she had dealt with it unlike Miles.

In general the plot was good. It intrigued me, the characters were easy to engage with, and I didn't want to put it down. I did wish it wasn't so back and forth at times and there was a little more development--maybe that's just me wanting a longer book though!

Overall I want Tobin's story now. I would definitely recommend this for military lovers.
