Former Army Special Forces Sgt. Marco Vieri was back home due to an injury and was trying to get his life back. Though all he wanted was his old life. Things will get turned around when he finds his best friends sister coming back home and working in the same bar. He will suddenly not see his best friends little sister but a woman.
Alyssa Scott was back home fresh out of college and ready to work. She gets a job at Whiskey’s where Marco Vieri worked, the man she had loved for many years. She will try to pursue a relationship with him but it will not be an easy task as Marco has walls built up that she will have to get around.
Her Forbidden Hero is the first book to the series Hero by Laura Kaye. So I liked the book but I felt at times it didn’t hold my attention.
The character of Alyssa bugged me a little as I felt she was a little naive when it came to Marco. She thought nothing had changed, that he was the same man she knew when she was a kid. But he had gone to war and survived an injury. Inside Marco he was broken. She does start to understand that and I do like her character especially as she is a fighter and wants to do things on her own. I also appreciated knowing about Alyssa’s past which played a big part of who she had become. So Marco’s character as I said is a little broken from all that he had gone through but he was not finished. He was like a man just walking through life and it took Alyssa to wake him up.
Brady is also introduced in this book who is Alyssa’s big brother. Brady’s story is the second and final book which I will be reading next.
