Real Hero: Small Town Military Romance is the fourth book in the Real Men series by Susan Saxx. He is an ex-SEAL, a man who once was a hero, but now he suffers from PTSD, a man who can’t hold onto a job and who doesn’t feel welcomed by his own family. His friend is an abandoned puppy. He feels like a stranger in his own home town of Jack's Bay, in northern Canada. Amy St. James is an intelligent and beautiful young woman and not just on the outside. She also has a heart of gold, always seeking opportunities to show kindness. And that explains why she is leaving her family’s boat building business to start her own enterprise with the dream of contributing to the community. When she meets Nathan Hero and his puppy, she finds them irresistible. The friendship starts quickly, in spite of the fact that no one wants to see them together, and quickly develops into an attraction. Only the city and their families are against them. Can they fight the obstacles and choose from the heart when everyone thinks they aren’t meant for each other?
Real Hero: Small Town Military Romance is wonderfully written, a gripping contemporary romance with awesome characters. Susan Saxx makes sure her characters are fleshed out, written with enough background to give them depth and complexity and pulled from two worlds that contradict each other. The narrative brims with emotional intensity and it also has strong psychological hints. The prose is seductive, fluid, and enticing to the reader. The narrative voice is strong and confident and the worldviews are distinctly presented through focused and well-crafted scenes. This is a captivating romance from a master storyteller.
