I Need a Hero by Codi Gary ~ Military man ~ rescue dogs

[space size=25]

  Evelyn Reynolds

She's the General's daughter. She is extremely messy, very bossy, stubborn and independent but still very close to her father. She wants a stable man, one who comes home at night and is in a "safe" profession. [br] [br]

Sergeant Oliver Martinez

He's a badass MP Sergeant. All he wants is to help people. He's very sassy and arrogant and he's not a bit shy. He sees what he wants and goes for it, consequences be damned. [br]


The Situation

So, He got into a bar fight and is being punished by being sent to Alpha Dog Training Program to help with publicity for a charity event. She's the event coordinator and his boss. It was an instant attraction on both their parts, but she fights it because he is military. I could feel the chemistry in the room with them! Alpha Dog Training Program is a two-part rehabilitation and rescue. They have troubled teens that are sent there to train rescue dogs to become military dogs. The Adult trainers are buddies of his and they give him a dog to train. Beast is an adorable pit bull that has been abandoned by his previous owners. Let's just say Beast gives him a run for his money, that's for sure! [br]

My Thoughts

This is my first time to read Codi Gary. I love reading about military men though so I picked it up. Her writing style is a bit different than I usually read. Her characters tell it like it is in a very clear everyday language. Having been around military men for the past 14 years, I know they have a way of speaking that other men don't. It's very clear that she has their lingo and attitude down to a T. Although I call suspect that a Sergeant would report to a General as that's way up in the chain of command, it didn't detract from the story at all. The supporting characters were interesting and engaging. I'm going to add the rest of the series to my TBR. [br]

I Need a Hero[book-info]

Sergeant Oliver Martinez joined the military to serve his country—not plan parties. But after a run-in with his commanding officer, Oliver is suddenly responsible for the Alpha Dogs Training Program’s upcoming charity event. Worse, he’s got to work with the bossiest, sexiest woman he's ever met—who just happens to be the general’s daughter. When it comes to military men, Evelyn Reynolds is not interested. And with the opportunity to launch her new PR firm at the charity event, she doesn't have time for some sexy, arrogant jerk with a hero complex. Evelyn is determined to keep things professional—if only she can ignore how Oliver’s muscles fill out a t-shirt and the infuriating way he makes her heart pound. But when tempers flare and a scorching kiss turns into so much more, Oliver and Evelyn will have to decide if this attraction is forever…or just for now.
