Her Forbidden Hero by Laura Kaye

Her Forbidden HeroHer Forbidden Hero by Laura Kaye
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Back Cover:
She's always been off-limits...

Former Army Special Forces Sgt. Marco Vieri has never thought of Alyssa Scott as more than his best friend's little sister, but her return home changes that...and challenges him to keep his war-borne demons at bay. Marco's not the same person he was back when he protected Alyssa from her abusive father, and he's not about to let her see the mess he's become.

...but now she's all grown up.

When Alyssa takes a job at the bar where Marco works, her carefree smiles wreak havoc on his resolve to bury his feelings. How can he protect her when he can't stop thinking about her in his bed? But Alyssa's not looking for protection—not anymore. Now that she's back in his life, she’s determined to heal her forbidden hero, one touch at a time..

My Review:
A touching story of a tortured war torn hero Marco returning home injured from the war zone and reconnecting with his childhood friend Alyssa.

Alyssa had a tough childhood; growing up Marco her brother’s best friend has been her guardian and her salvation. Alyssa's has been in love with Marco all her life, so when she reconnects with this tortured man it is her chance to finally be there for Marco.

There is lots of angst and sexual tension in this book to keep you engaged. Marco and Alyssa romance is sweet and tender based on their long standing friendship and his role as her protector.

A nice engaging read.


  1. I absolutely loved this book. Being an Army wife myself, when I read the description I was immediately sucked in. I bought this book around lunch time, and was finished by the time I went to bed. It was glued to my hands and I did not want to put it down. There were times in the book when I felt Alyssa's pain, and times when I was really able to relate to how Marco had changed from being in Afghanistan.

  2. I'm so glad to hear this, Luxembourg! xoxo
