Review: Holding Out for a Hero by Codi Gary
Holding Out for a Hero
A Men in Uniform #3
He wasn’t looking for love...
Two years after the death of his wife, Sergeant Blake Kline is still hurting. He isn’t ready to date, but whenever he stops by his local diner and sees the friendly smile of his favorite waitress, he feels a spark of true happiness again. And when her life is unexpectedly threatened, Blake discovers his feelings for her might not be as platonic as he thought.
She was holding out for the hero of her dreams...
Bookworm Hannah York has always been a hopeless romantic—preferring book boyfriends to blind dates—and she’s been day-dreaming about Blake since the moment he came into her diner. She’s convinced they’ll never be more than friends... until Blake kisses her and “weak in the knees” becomes more than just a line from her favorite romance novel. The closer Blake and Hannah get, however, the harder he fights to keep her at a distance.
But forever has a way of sneaking up on you...
When their blossoming relationship takes a complicated turn, Blake will have to face his past… or risk losing Hannah forever.
Codi Gary is a newer author for me. I've only started her for this series but I have to tell you that I'm really enjoying her stories.
Holding Out for a Hero is number #3 in the series. There is also a novella that starts the series. Plenty of good reading here.
I really enjoyed Blake & Hannah's story. Poor Blake has so much crap he needs to work out with his past. But he has his friends and Hannah to do it with. Of course it would help if he'd let them in just a little bit more.
Hannah's life is pretty much on track but the girl has to get some self-confidence. She's a wonderful character that you would love to have as a friend but she'd be the type that you could easily bully into your thoughts.
That's why Blake and Hannah are so good together. They fill in what the other needs. Hannah needs Blake's strength and Blake needs Hannah's softness. The perfect combo.
I really enjoyed their story and I'm so happy to see that they found happiness. Once you start Holding Out for a Hero you won't be able to put it down so make sure to start it when you have some time.
If you've read Holding Out for a Hero or any other book by Codi Gary I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for visiting and happy reading!
