‘NOT A HERO’ IS NOW LIVE (Oct 4, 2016)!
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.

Where do I start? This book has all the feels. A hero that returns from the war emotional wounded. A heroine that has her own emotional scars to deal with and the dying father that puts them together. If anyone needed a guardian angel, it is Myles. He’s a good person but one action has defined him as a person. Will at least in his eyes.
Zoe is the nurse that helps him heal. She’s also his dad’s nurse. I loved her from the being. Regardless of what she went through before, she knew what Myles needed. Whether it was sex, just talking to him or pushing him away, she “got” him. He just needed to see for himself what she and others around him saw.
The secondary characters in the book were outstanding. Tobin (Myles’ best friend), Walter (Myles’ dad), to the stranger in the bar. They supported Myles through thick and thin. Zoe had Ari and Mollie to lean on. I will have to say that Bianca was breath of fresh air. Crass, brass and totally out there but she helped explained Tobin and what he went through growing up and still goes through. Ms. Robinson writes her secondary characters in depth but without them taking over.
I don’t think I’ll ever think of a Ferris Wheel the same. The smexy times are right on target. Not too much or raunchy, just enough to be hot and sweet enough to make you swoon. I also liked that Ms. Robinson didn’t use sex as a fix all either. Myles needed help and he finally got it. And yes, what he did was awful but he got through it and will always have to deal with it.
Overall, I loved this book. It was raw, gripping, emotional and had characters that were dealing with some realistic issues. Ms. Robinson dealt with them head on, as did the characters.
