Hero by Samantha Young
Wow. Caine Carraway may be my favorite Alpha A-hole of all time. His tough outer shell and closely guarded secrets makes it seem impossible for Caine and Alexa to find their happiness. Samantha Young weaves a sexy, complex story that's full of secrets and intrigue. Highly recommended.
I loved everything about this book. A vulnerable but strong and sassy heroine, Check. A sexy alpha asshole you can't help but love, Check. Off the charts sexual tension that explodes into gloriously hot sex, Check Check! Add in a fascinating storyline, sexy banter and a hilarious match-making old lady and you get a fantastic 5 star read!
Holy hell in a hand basket. Caine is the ultimate asshole-turned-less-asshole, and I could not get enough of his dirty mouth. Hero is deliciously naughty in all the right ways, including the feeling that I should have hated him, but I couldn't help but want to launch myself at his face. Hero is a must-read! [February 2015]
Caine grinned, a wicked full-on smile that made my heart palpitate. “No, you just bring it out in me.”
I smiled back. “You’re saying you have a thing for bossing me around?”
“Just like you have a thing for being a smart-ass. Now sit on my desk and spread your legs.”
“I don’t know.” I sighed in rapture as he stroked my breasts, his thumbs dragging over my sensitive nipples. “Do you ever want it to be?”
He leaned down, his familiar scent causing another squeeze of desire in my belly. His lips brushed over mine and he pulled back to whisper, “I’d spend my last hours inside you if I could.”
Alexa Holland’s father was her hero—until her shocking discovery that her mother and she weren’t his only family. Ever since, Alexa has worked to turn her life in a different direction and forge her own identity outside of his terrible secrets. But when she meets a man who’s as damaged by her father’s mistakes as she is, Alexa must help him.
Caine Carraway wants nothing to do with Alexa’s efforts at redemption, but it’s not so easy to push her away. Determined to make her hate him, he brings her to the edge of her patience and waits for her to walk away. But his actions only draw them together and, despite the odds, they begin an intense and explosive affair.
Only Caine knows he can never be the white knight that Alexa has always longed for. And when they’re on the precipice of danger, he finds he’ll do anything to protect either one of them from being hurt again....
