Book Review - Her Temporary Hero by Jennifer Apodaca

Her Temporary Hero Banner


My Thoughts

Becky is scared and alone and needs a place to go. Her abusive ex is threatening to take away her baby and she has no family to go to since her mom recently passed away. She calls her boss who arranges for her to hide out at her cousin's place while he is away.

Logan comes home to find a woman and a baby in his house. Despite the memories they bring up for him, he agrees to let them stay once Becky agrees to marry him so that he can retain his land. She agrees when he offers to help her win the custody battle for her baby.

Both Becky and Logan struggle with brokenness, but together they begin to heal and fall in love. 

I so adored Becky. She is a warrior momma who will do whatever it takes to protect her little one. She falls for Logan, but doesn't trust it because of her ex. She pushes past that and just loves him big. She is super sweet and wants to take care of everyone in her life.

Logan suffered from PTSD and not only was he finding a way to deal with it himself but to help others through it as well. Can I just say that he also does really well in the naughty talking department. Really well. And the moment he first holds Sophia on the horse...swoon worthy for sure.

I give Her Temporary Hero 4 hearts!

About the Book

Former beauty queen Becky Holmes and her baby are on the run from her dangerous ex. With her dreams of love and marriage destroyed, she’ll do anything to protect her child…even agree to hide out in her boss’s cousin’s house while he’s away.

Wealthy, sexy, and emotionally haunted Logan Knight needs a temporary wife to get his land, per his dad’s rules. No wife, no inheritance. But when that wife lands on his doorstep and comes with a baby, his darkest memories are triggered. He tries to keep his distance, but his efforts are shattered when he starts to have real feelings for his fake wife and child.   

Just as Logan begins to think he may have a future with Becky, his attempt to have it all backfires into a betrayal that forces Becky into a heart-wrenching choice no woman should ever have to make.

  1. Her Temporary Hero was a wonderful read. I instantly fell in love with Becky, Logan and Sophie!

  2. Looking forward to reading Her Temporary Hero. Thanks for the giveaway.

  3. I'm loving the read. Logan's character is so well done. It's hard watching him struggle. Becky is a very mature 22 yr old and easy to relate to. I love these two :).

    1. Viki, thank you! It was a challenge to pair up a 22 year old with a almost 30 year old hardened former Marine :-)

  4. Great review! Took the words right out of my mouth!
