    Outstanding! Love it!!

    Oh my, those wounded warriors get me every time! An Everyday Hero is a phenomenal contemporary romance by Laura Trentham. I think this might be my favorite of the books I've read by this author. Ms. Trentham has provided readers with a book that's well-written and populated with a cast of characters you can't help but love. Greer had a meltdown at a bar after finding her boyfriend with his assistant. The jukebox objected, the cops were called and Greer found herself in front of a judge. Emmett has been hiding away in his family's cabin since losing part of his leg since leaving the military. Emmett and Greer's story is loaded with drama, humor and spice. While I loved the characters in this book, I feel I should also mention Ms. Trentham deserves kudos for the outstanding dialog. I love Greer's sass. An Everyday Hero is book 2 of A Heart of a Hero Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book that I received from NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

    4.25⭐

    An Everyday Hero is my first book by Laura Trentham and I found it to be a very absorbing story; and quite honestly I enjoyed it more than I was expecting too, as even though I love reading military romance I never normally read ones that are completely missing action, suspense and edge of your seat drama. But what An Everyday Hero lacked in those areas, it made up for in others, as not only was it tender, uplifting, and heartwarming, but it highlighted and tackled many issues faced not only by the families of soldiers who don't make it home, but those who do, and the veterans themselves who sadly do return from serving having suffered catastrophic injuries or minus limbs, and suffering survivor's guilt, and often questioning the point of a war where nothing seems to have changed; and every issue raised and knock on effect caused was well-handled, realistic and sensitively treated. Yet, for me the ending all came together a bit too well, and the story itself was, for my taste overly sweet. But nevertheless it was a well written and very enjoyable story, and it certainly made a nice change to the usual military romance I read; and so, I would happily recommend An Everyday Hero to others, especially if you like your military romance clean, uplifting, and super sweet. **I was kindly provided with an ARC by St Martin's Griffin in exchange for an honest review**

    I love Greer's snarkiness.

    Loved this story! I love Greer's snarkiness. It is what is needed by more than one person. Emmett has come home with one leg and a real attitude. He just wants to be a hermit. Greer isn't about to let that happen. Even when he shoots at her, she doesn't back down and that is just the way to get to him. Greer's life is in a shambles, but there are others who have it worse than she does. If she can just help them, maybe her life with sort itself out.

    Characters that feel so real and true

    Greer Hadley has a failed music career, has gotten herself into some trouble, and is back home, where she does not want to be. Emmett Lawson was the town’s golden boy – popular, athlete, soldier - but he blames himself for what happened to the men under his command and is hiding out. These two are quite the pair. Neither believes they have anything to offer, and are sure they deserve the rejection, bad luck and loneliness they see in their futures. And stubborn doesn’t even begin to describe them. Underneath the hard exteriors, however, are two big hearts and a huge capacity to love. I love second chance stories, and I love the way author Laura Trentham tells this emotional, wonderful, amazing story of these characters. These heroes. They aren’t teenagers. They’ve experienced some truly hard parts of life, been knocked down and don’t think they can get up. But life has more surprises in store for them. An Everyday Hero is the second book in the Heart of a Hero series. Already a fan of author Trentham’s when the first book, A Military Wife, released I suspected that although it was a new genre for her I was going to love it, and I was right. I hope this series goes on and on. Laura Trentham is an author you should read. Now. There is something that runs through all of her stories, no matter the time period or setting or how breathlessly sexy it might get. I think it's the emotions of the characters, characters that always feel real and true. You will feel sad for them, get angry and disappointed with them, cry when they are hurt and laugh at some of the hilarious things they say and do. But you will always, always love them, and you will be completely filled with satisfaction when the story ends. I received an advance copy of An Everyday Hero from the author and publisher St. Martin’s Press via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I love this book, this series, this author and highly recommend you read An Everyday Hero. You will be glad you did.

    Will Greer find her love of music again?

    This book is perfectly titled. Some heroes are lauded publicly, and some are walking among us that we never hear about. The title character Greer is one of the latter. The book opens as she is in jail for a drunken episode in a bar. Her uncle is the presiding judge and he sentences her to do volunteer work for a charity helping veterans and their families with music therapy. This is the last thing she wants to do as she has just given up her music career after leaving home for ten year to try to make it in that industry. She is given two of the most difficult clients, a surly teenager who has lost her father and a serviceman who returns home after the loss of his leg. All of these characters are well developed and the way they intersect was a joy to read.
