    Excellent

    I really enjoyed this one! But then with a character as yummy as Jax Farraday what's not to enjoy?? Jax has had a long career in the Navy as an MP but now he needs to make a decision. Put in his papers and go civilian or reenlist again. He knows what he wants but landing that perfect civilian job hasn't been as easy as he hoped. Then when his K9 partner Bella is hurt he meets the base vet Risa Reynolds. Getting involved now is a complication he doesn't need but sometimes the desires of the heart don't care about timing. An excellent book and one I highly recommend.

    Cute Couple

    I enjoyed being there while Risa and Jax fell in love.  Neither one of them is really looking for someone and, while they feel a pretty big pull toward one another, circumstances just want to get in their way.  Luckily they keep getting pushed together because they make an adorable couple.  Risa has an extremely soft heart - caring and hard-working for her patients & their people.  That dedication has her in Jax's orbit and she's finding him awfully tempting.  One of those super-awesome southern gentleman, Jax was raised right but he's still got a bit of a bad boy streak in him :)  Sexy, attentive, and sharp, he's just about perfect ... except he's also military and that's a big no-no for Risa.  But he's also determined and turns his considerable charm on her.   My only real complaint came at the very end.  There's this aha! moment with who was causing trouble (although it isn't hard to figure out) but it isn't explained.  I have absolutely no idea why Jax was able to figure it out.  Maybe I skimmed over an important detail in my zest to find out what happened next (which kept me turning pages quickly through a lot of the book) but if I missed it then I'm sure others will too. Other than that, I will say that I was a little disappointed with Risa.  When the big conflict in their relationship comes up (which pretty much all romances have at some point) she shuts down.  Totally reverts to teenage drama and she should be mature enough to handle things better.  But then the resolution would have been a little too easy, I guess :)  For a first introduction to Chianese and this series (while this is the second book it can easily stand on its own), I found A Hero to Love a delightful read.  I'm looking forward to seeing what comes next - I understand that it is Risa's uber-cool friend, Fiona.  I'm anxious to see who gets to be her HEA! *** I voluntarily read a Review Copy of this book. All opinions stated are solely my own and no one else’s. ***

    A Sweet & Fun Story

    A hot military man, a K-9 dog to be adored, a vet with a petting zoo at home, an alluring romance, and a bit of suspense thrown into the mix and I was hooked with the blurb. I read the book one in the series, Love Runs Deep, and was impressed with its originality, so I was excited to see how this story would shape up to be. No worries, this is a completely stand alone tale and does not require you to read the book one in the series. Navy Chief Master at Arms Jackson “Jax” Faraday was an amazing hero, I simply loved him. He is a tough alpha man, yet he is kind, considerate, caring man deep inside. He loves all animals, his best friend, Bella the K-9 partner, has been by his side through the thick and thin. He was my favorite part of the story, I loved the banter at the base, how he interacted with his neighbor, with people in general, he was just a good, solid man to have around, and easy on the eyes as well. The Navy base veterinarian, Risa Reynolds, was a bit of a challenge to me. I liked her and enjoyed the little bit of Britt she had in her. Her temperament and caring for the zoo around her was endearing and entertaining. She had issues with her parents emotionally neglecting her, making her feel outside in her own family. She had sworn off military men, because 'they always leave'. I really enjoyed the interaction and romance between Risa and Jax even though Risa was demonstrating the 'you're hot and then cold' a little too well there for awhile. But then 'the conflict' came, and she completely spaced out, refused to communicate, and blocked everyone out, and that's when the story flopped for me, unfortunately. The suspense was predictable, as soon as the first vandalism happened, I knew the culprit. But the threats and attacks were part of the plot providing new twists to the story. I liked how down to earth the military life was portrayed at the base, it sounded very realistic. The struggle to find purpose in life after years of a military service was eye opening. The choices of future careers are there, yet it takes an effort and hard work to land one of those few coveted spots available for the veterans. Sometimes the one thing we are running away from turns out to be the one thing to hold the key to our future, as Risa finds out in A Hero to Love. A sweet, fun, passionate tale about falling in love when your life is at the crossroads and the being vulnerable and open to unexpected possibilities scares the boots off your feet. ~ Four Spoons

    Contemporary Romance - K-9

    Navy Chief Master at Arms, Jaxson “Jax Faraday has worked with his K-9 partner for years only to finer her suddenly ho-hum on the job and with him perhaps moving to a new job and her to a new handler things are not right in his world. In steps veterinarian Risa Reynolds when Bella sustains an injury and the possibility of romance between Risa and Jax blooms. Toss in a whack job that has it in for Risa and the story became a bit more complicated. I was entertained by the story and happy with the ending but did feel, at times, that the plot was somewhat predictable. Thank you to NetGalley and Kensington Books-Lyrical Press - This is my honest review.
