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.


 I ABSOLUTELY ADORED Her Temporary Hero by Jennifer Apodaca! This book took a chunk of my heart and ran away with it. It was incredibly moving, emotional, and sexy! You can NEVER go wrong with a damaged ex-marine cowboy with a body like a god and an incredibly beautiful soul. Her Temporary Hero is book two in Jennifer Apodaca’s Once A Marine series, but seeing as I haven’t read book one, The Baby Bargain (which just shot up in my TBR list by the way), this can definitely be read as a standalone. I have only been familiar with Jennifer Lyon’s Plus One Chronicles, but I have to say, no matter who Jennifer is writing as, it’s guaranteed to be a WINNER in my book!

 Becky and Logan’s story had just the right amount of romance to make your heart melt. It had the right amount of drama and suspense to keep you on the edge of your seat, and it had the right amount of sex to keep you blushing for days. These two scarred individuals are being beaten down every day because of their past. Logan is an ex-marine with nightmares that are taking a piece of his soul every night. He can’t escape them, he can’t change them, and he doesn’t want to share the burden with anyone. All he wants is his land, so he can turn it into something amazing. Becky is a single mom who is on the run from a crazy ex with wealthy connections. All she wants to do is keep her baby safe, and she will do anything to make that happen. After their intense, unexpected meeting, Logan and Becky immediately feel the intense chemistry between them. These two aren’t in a hurry to start up a romance with anyone. They have too much on their minds to deal with anything complicated. But when they both need each other to achieve their goal, circumstances forces them to become even closer. Before they know it, their heart and soul get in the way, and they are falling harder than ever. The plan that they worked so hard on, is crumbling with every kiss, every touch, every embrace, and before you know it, the lines that were blurred, are now, nowhere in sight. 

 Ms. Apodaca heats up the pages with Her Temporary Hero. Romantic, sexy, and emotional, this book hit the spot! I can’t wait to backtrack and read book 1, and I will be first in line with whatever comes next in the Once A Marine Series!

Seeing Adam Waters is the last thing veterinarian Megan Young expects. Ex-Marine. Ex-boyfriend. And still extremely dangerous territory. But Adam doesn’t know the secret Megan has been keeping from him. The secret that was created three years ago, after their last night together…

Adam returns to Raven’s Cove to sell his home in a final break with the town and memories that haunt him. The problem is that his attraction to Megan is as blazing hot as it ever was. But when a vicious smear campaign against Megan turns ugly, Adam learns the truth he never knew—he has a son.

Now the only way Megan can protect her child is to strike a bargain with Adam. And it’s a bargain that looks a lot like blackmail…
