Noah… Oh ya, we meet him in Lena and Chads story (Hero by Night) and I begged Sara to write more about him. I could tell he had a good story and I was right! Noah had a forbidden relationship before joining the Marines. To find out more about that story read Sara’s Running Wild (picture below), this review is about what happens five years later…
Noah is home to help run his father’s bar that he is trying to rebrand and make more successful. Between the bar, helping at the gun range and taking care of his father Noah has been able to keep from thinking of his past mistakes. At least some of the time. He was thought of as the hometown hero, which didn’t change when he came home a “war hero”, it’s something he used to pride in himself, not anymore. He tries to come across as a sullen jerk that doesn’t care anymore, until none other than Josie Fairmore, the one women he has never forgotten shows up asking for help.
Josie wanted nothing more than to leave the small town she grew up in. The town that called her wild and thought she would never amount to anything. It kills her inside to have to ask for help when she is forced to move home. Let alone ask Noah, the man that took her heart and smashed it. Noah had always told her that if she needed anything she could ask him, so swallowing her pride and the past hurt, she does ask.
Noah refuses at first not wanting the distraction or temptation of having Jose with-in his grasp yet unable to take her for his own. Jose’s brother would come back from overseas and kick his sorry butt for one and the other reason was that Noah didn’t think he was good enough for her anymore. He was too broken, he was no ones hero. Jose being a strong-willed woman doesn’t let him turn her away. I think the mention of her working at the topless bar might have had something to do with it too ;-). Noah didn’t want anyone seeing her like that, well other than him that is. Within the story you get to see the pain both have endured. The past five years wasn’t easy for either of them, the education Jose received does make her a hero in the town though. What kind of hero, lol you will have to read to find out. Will these two be able to forgive and heal, or will they keep making the same mistakes. That is what I kept thinking, but then Sara throws in a twist, someone else comes for Noah’s help. Another woman, which causes more trouble than Noah and Jose think they can handle. Noah is getting threatened, bullets and flying and the people he has left are counting on him. Noah doesn’t know how he can save himself let alone anyone else.
