    Contemporary Romance

    An Everyday Hero by Laura Trentham Heart of a Hero #2 Eagerly anticipated and well worth waiting for! The second book in this series takes on a new set of characters living in a new town but continues to deal with life issues of military veterans and the people that are in their lives. In some ways it is the story of dreams and goals that were held dear for years and yet something happened in life to derail, detour or destroy the dream from appearing as reality. Greer had dreams of being a hit in the music business, Emmett dreamed of adding to the family military legacy in a big way, Ally and her mother dreamed of a family life with father and husband and yet...those expectations were not to be. And yet...when things don’t go as expected there is always the opportunity to do one of two things...wallow or move on and make the best of it. I really enjoyed this book! What I liked: * Greer: banged up and bruised and wallowing a bit she is given a job to do and in doing community service impacts Ally and Emmett in ways that improved her life, too. I liked the way she interacted with Emmett and with Ally...she is a person I wouldn’t mind having as a friend. * Emett: withdrawn and nursing his wounds he is hermit-ting and wallowing until Greer shows up and begins to draw him out. When he started to emerge I really REALLY began to like him. * Ally: an old soul that had more on her plate than a fifteen year old should have to deal with. She was tough with a soft center – was rooting for hermit-i * The parents of Emmett and Greer – they were a soft place to land for their children even though their children might not have always realized it. It did take a bit to warm up to Emmett’s father but all’s well that ends well. * The military persons from old and current wars that made appearances * Eddie the horse and Bonnie the cat * The big reveal...and how it impacted more than one * Even the sad bits were heartwarming and gave a positive vibe for the future * The “realness” of the story What I didn’t like: * The fact that sometimes people, for whatever reason, opt to escape and in doing so harm not only themselves but others...but...that is life. If those people are lucky they will have people come into their lives that can help them do a U-Turn. I can’t wait for book three… Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press – Griffin for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars

    A MUST READ

    Greer and Emmett are lost souls, needing help to save themselves in An Everyday Hero by Laura Trentham, book 2 in her Heart of a Hero series. This was a wonderful and emotional story rich in family, relationships, heartbreak, second chances at living and taking risks. Messing up her life and dreams as a songwriter in Nashville, Greer Hadley finds herself back home. Making a series of bad decisions only makes things worse and lands Greer having to do community service at a nonprofit organization that helps veterans and their families. Greer is lost as to how she’s supposed to use music to help others deal with their trauma and loss when it failed her. Greer firsts meets Ally Martinez, a fifteen-year-old who recently lost her dad while he was deployed. She is new to town and hides behinds a mask of bitterness and sarcasm. Greer sees past her attitude, recognizing parts of herself in Ally. Next, Greer is assigned to help a veteran, Emmett Lawson, the town’s golden boy, who followed in his father’s and grandfather’s footsteps. Greer is shocked when she meets up with Emmett; as he believes he doesn’t deserve anyone’s help. Achieving a breakthrough with Ally reminds Greer that no one is worth giving up on. Showing up with his old guitar, Emmett loses it, showing Greer his anger and stubbornness. Yet Greer is persistent, not giving up on Emmett, forcing him to move outside his comfort zone. When Ally ends up in an awful situation, Greer needs Emmett’s help in order to save her. Somehow, along the way, Greer and Emmett find ways to also save themselves. Ms. Trentham wrote an amazing and emotional story that is definitely not to be missed. She provided a tale rich with sexual chemistry, amusing banter, and endearing characters who grow throughout this story, saving Greer and Emmett as they find themselves, as well as happiness, love and a future together. I highly recommend An Everyday Hero to other readers. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

    loved it

    I have read a couple of books by this author and continue to come back for more. Her characters are easy to like even when hidden beneath pain and loss. I enjoy the easy read while sometimes her descriptive imagery can sometimes be over the top it does paint a vivid picture in your mind. This time where we are reminded of everyone inherent need to have a hero we are made to understand it's the everyday heroes that count. It's a sweet story about loosing oneself in pursuit of a dream and dealing with the resulting failures. This time though one of my complaints is the characters actions while she may be 30 she seems extremely immature, although that could also stem from her finally "growing up". It's an easy read with a teen who has a hand in helping them both find their peace and their place.

    An honest view of what the military does to you.

    Laura Trentham always writes a good story. An Everyday Hero is a book that deals with disappointment, loss, survivor's guilt and getting back on track. Greer has failed at launching a successful music career in Nashville and had a relationship end badly. Emmett is a veteran who has returned home without a limb, but with a whole lot of guilt about how things went down. Ally is a teenager who's father died in battle. Greer's court ordered community service with an organization that helps vets and their families through music brings them all together. Greer is a real hard @ss, which turns out to be just what the other two need. But what if she needs them just as much? A beautiful story. Thank you, Ms. Trentham for not sugar coating what the military does to people. I was given a complimentary copy of this book via NetGalley. All thoughts are my own.
