Her Hometown Hero (Unexpected Heroes #2)
by Melody Anne

Sage Banks had a huge crush on Spence Whitman as a young girl. But when she revealed her feelings for him, he dismissed her. Now, she's an adult and a physician who's in the process of choosing a residency program. When her grandmother’s health seems to be declining, she's forced to pick the position at the local hospital in her hometown of Sterling. She realizes to late that Spence works there and he's her new boss.

Spence Whitman is very lucky in the female department. He's smart, rich and handsome. He never had to fight for a woman's attention before. When he meets Sage again and she's all grown up, he’s very much interested in the successful beautiful doctor she has become. But, contrary to the norm, Sage doesn’t seem to be falling for him as expected. She becomes a dare to him. One that he wants to win.

Sage lost her parents and grandfather in an instant. She worked hard to become a doctor and going back home to do her residency made her feel like she was settling. However, she will do anything for her grandmother. Her only living relative. She had her heart broken by Spence years ago and now she doesn’t want to give him the chance to hurt her again. After months of working together she knows he’s not only a great teacher but that she's falling for him.


This is the second book in the Unexpected Heroes series and it centers around the second brother Spence. He's one of the adopted children who were saved by Martin. Jackson and Camden are the other two adopted siblings. All the brothers have had a hard time trusting people. Spence is not the exception. At first, Sage becomes a challenge for him but after a while he realizes he's developing feelings for her. Regardless, of his trust issues he’s willing to fight for her.

In the beginning, I wasn't too fond of Spence. As the book progressed I started rooting for him when he started wooing her . The thoughtful gifts were sweet. He was a man on a mission to get Sage to trust him and let him into her heart. Spence had no problem asking his family or friends for help when he needed some.
I understood why Sage guarded her heart in such a way. Spence hurt her feelings. He was her first crush and he dismissed her. I just wished she didn't push him away so many times.

I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.

“Love isn’t logical, Sage. It isn’t something you can put in a box, take out when you want to play with it, and then put it back away when it frightens you. It’s imperfect, comes with fits of emotions, and makes your insides flip out. There’s no reason to it, and if it doesn’t scare the hell out of you, you aren’t feeling it strongly enough. Love is scary because when we love someone, we fear losing them. But without love, what’s the purpose of life? If we give ourselves over to love, we win—we always will win.”

Cliffhanger: No
