After losing her husband in the line of duty, Riley Logan looks for a fresh start in Magnolia Springs. However, a fear of rejection makes relationships difficult. Lieutenant Colonel Brian Stone returns home from the Middle East after losing his legs to an IED. The last thing he wants is to be treated like a hero—or pitied for his injuries.
While working on a charity event, benefiting injured veterans, they find they have more in common than a talent for snarky comments. But when Brian is offered an opportunity too good to refuse, Riley must decide if she can risk losing another man to a dangerous job.
I found My Hometown Hero to be pleasant and realistic read. The heroine Riley, falls for the grumpy veteran Colonel Brian Stone. She is bound and determined to give his orneriness right back to him. All while doing so, she feels like she is betraying her deceased husband. Brian who has PTSD and is learning to cope with the loss of both his legs doesn’t feel like he should be a hero in anyones eyes. From the first time he lays eyes on Riley, he knows he is in for all kinds of trouble. Sassy, sexy and single never looked so good to him. They have more ups and downs than a good roller coaster ride. Once they learn what really is important, is when they will find where their happiness lies.
