#BookReview: An Everyday Hero (A Heart of a Hero #2) by @LauraTrentham


Synopsis: From award-winning author Laura Trentham comes an emotionally layered novel about redemption, second chances and discovering that life is worth fighting for.
At thirty, Greer Hadley never expected to be forced home to Madison, Tennessee with her life and dreams of being a songwriter up in flames. To make matters worse, a series of bad decisions and even crappier luck lands her community service hours at a nonprofit organization that aids veterans and their families. Greer cannot fathom how she’s supposed to use music to help anyone deal with their trauma and loss when the one thing that brought her joy has failed her.
When Greer meets fifteen-year-old Ally Martinez, her plans to stay detached and do as little as possible get thrown away. New to town and dealing with the death of her father in action, she hides her emotions behind a mask of bitterness and sarcasm, but Greer is able to see past it and recognizes pieces of who she once was in Ally. The raw and obvious talent she possesses could take her to the top and Greer vows to make sure life’s negativities don’t derail Ally’s potential.
After Greer is assigned a veteran to help, she’s not surprised Emmett Lawson, the town’s golden boy, followed his family’s legacy. What leaves her shocked is the shell of a man who believes he doesn’t deserve anyone’s help. A breakthrough with Ally reminds Greer that no one is worth giving up on. So she shows up one day with his old guitar, and meets Emmett’s rage head on with her stubbornness. When a situation with Ally becomes dire, the two of them must become a team to save her—and along the way they might just save themselves too.

Rating: ★★★★
My Review: I never read the first book to this series but I have to say that this one was really good.  I am not much for military stories but this one worked out well. It was a great story with wonderful characters that I couldn't put down.  I do think that this was a slow burn romance that worked for the story and the characters. 




"By turns heartwarming and heartbreaking, this story will grip readers from start to finish." - Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
"Trentham (The Military Wife, 2019) explores the complex range of emotions facing members of the military and their loved ones, emphasizing the power of connection. Fans of Mary Kay Andrews' novels and Matthew Quick's The Reason You're Alive (2017) will enjoy this patriotic and heartwarming story of ambition, identity, and regained potential." - Booklist, Starred Review

"Readers will delight in the heartfelt way the characters' lives are woven together." - Library Journal
