From the bestselling author of the Kavanagh Legends MMA series, Sarah Robinson's Not A Hero is an emotional standalone military romance where love battles trauma, and there can only be one victor.

Former Marine, Miles Kydd, is trying to readjust to civilian life after ending his career and returning to his small home town when he learned his father was diagnosed with a terminal illness. Once the town hero and star quarterback, Miles no longer feels like the man he was, or who he's expected to be--possibly because his demons have followed him home from Afghanistan.
Meeting Zoe Brooke, his father's live-in nurse, gives Miles the slightest glimmer of hope that he can still find happiness despite the dark secrets he holds inside. The chemistry between them is undeniable, and together they are explosive--in more ways than one.

A helper at her core, Zoe is more than willing to care for Miles's heart, but not at the expense of her own, and she's not afraid to tell him that. She knows what having a painful past is like, and she wants to help him with his, if he'll let her.

Things get complicated fast when Miles realizes burying his secrets isn't actually the same as healing from them and if he wants the girl, he's going to have to tell her the truth--the one thing he can't do.
NOTE: This novel contains graphic content, violence, and sexual scenes. Meant for 18+ years of age. Available for free on Kindle Unlimited, or for $2.99 on Amazon.

My Thoughts:

Miles Kydd is finally on his way home.  Tobin is a good friend of his and left me wanting to know more of his story.  This is just one reason to keep reading this emotional story.  Zoe Brooke takes care of Miles’ dad – which is another emotional tale.  Our author has created Zoey’s character with a mysterious background.  This is another reason to keep turning the pages – I want to know if Zoey’s mystery ever unravels.

What was difficult with this story is how Miles is trying to deal with his life after being a soldier.  This author sends a strong message of our loved ones coming home with PTSD.  Soldiers aren’t the only ones that change – those they leave behind do too.  It’s a strong incentive to donate to any number of veteran’s causes.  What a great way to say “Thank you for your service”.  

There were times where I couldn’t help having a tear leak out.  We see how our soldiers today are finally getting help.  Even though there are those, like Miles, that think they can do it by themselves.  But it also has you thinking about how many, from previous wars, suffered in silence.  This is one of those stories that unless your heart is completely frozen you will feel something.  It may also give you a greater appreciation for both soldiers and hospice nurses.

The story is not all about PTSD and death but also about life and love.  And boy some of that loving is really hot.  I guess it’s a good thing that the nights are getting cooler – that heat will keep you warm for a while.  Ms. Robinson does not disappoint her readers.  It will be interesting to see if we see the people of Slipwick again.
