Review - An Everyday Hero by Laura Trentham

An Everyday Hero
by Laura Trentham
Series: Heart of a Hero, #2
Genre: Women's Fiction/Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 4, 2020

At thirty, Greer Hadley never expected to be forced home to Madison, Tennessee with her life and dreams up in flames. A series of bad decisions and even worse luck lands her community service hours at a nonprofit organization that aids veterans and their families. Greer cannot fathom how she’s supposed to help anyone deal with their trauma and loss when everything that brought her joy has failed her.

Then Greer meets fifteen-year-old Ally Martinez, a gifted girl who lost her father in action and now hides her pain behind a mask of sarcasm. But Greer sees something undeniable that she can’t walk away from. To make matters more complicated, Greer finds herself spending more and more time with Emmett Lawson—a man with both physical and emotional scars of his own. 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.

Laura Trentham has once again delivered a heartfelt, emotional story that tells the tale of two people who find exactly what they need from each other to rediscover themselves and heal from the wounds of their pasts.

I just loved Greer Hadley. Even though she’s trying to get over the disappointment of her dreams not panning out, she hasn’t lost her sass and spark, which was what exactly what was needed to help both Ally and Emmett. From Greer’s first meeting with Emmett, I just knew that these two would end up connecting in a way that touched both of their souls. Greer was the kick in the pants that Emmett needed, Emmett was the support that Greer needed to lean on – even if it took them a bit to figure this out!
Whether he wanted to accept it or not, he was a hero. Better than saving her, he’d given her the courage to save herself.
And watching Greer work with Ally, as well as Emmett redefine and rediscover his relationship with his parents, was exactly what this story needed to add additional depth to the characters.

I have become a huge fan of Laura Trentham’s ability to craft a story with realistic characters, refreshing dialogue, and a well-designed plot. Although there are some sensitive subjects touched upon in this book, the story is able to promote healing and growth from pain, tragedy, and loss. Ms. Trentham is able to convey both the vulnerability and the strength of her characters through both dialogue and actions, and finds a way to give her characters emotional depth as she tells their story. The love scenes are fade to black, but she is still able to give the reader a sense of the physical intimacy and connection that Greer and Emmett develop and share.

Ms. Trentham is quickly becoming a go-to author for me and is one I would recommend to anyone looking for a book with all the feels that will capture your heart.

I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book I received from the Publisher on NetGalley.
