From the bestselling author of the Kavanagh Legends MMA series, Sarah Robinson's Not A Hero is an emotional standalone military romance where love battles trauma, and there can only be one victor. 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.
This book is suggested for 18+ years of age, contains graphic content, sensitive subject matters, and sexually explicit material.

Miles Kydd is finally returning home after eight years in the Marines. He is returning to the only home he has ever known. Everything is the same, but everything is different. Miles isn't the same man he was when he joined the military right out of high school. He has seen and done things that will haunt him forever. But he is determined to just put it out of his mind and focus on his sick father. However, Miles doesn't except to meet Zoe Brooke, his father's live-in nurse. Or that she could give him a glimmer of hope against the darkness inside of him.
Zoe knows all to well that the past can haunt you and be painful. And she sees that pain in Miles every time she looks in his eyes. And she is more than willing to be there for him, but not at the expense of her sanity.
But the closer Miles and Zoe get, the harder and harder it gets for Miles to open up to the one person that has become his calm in the storm. And if he can't open up to Zoe and share his pain, he is going to lose her for good.
Not A Hero is a beautiful, emotional, sexy, and sweet story about two people learning to deal with past horrors. Not A Hero made me cry, laugh, and steamed up my kindle at 2 am!! I couldn't put this book down. And to be honest, it was probably a good thing my husband fell asleep on the couch watching football because otherwise he would of woken up to me crying a few times. **awkward**
I highly recommend this author and if you haven't read her Kavanagh series, GO READ IT!! =]
Rating: 5 out of 5
