Her Forbidden Hero by Laura Kaye Book Review

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
5 DOG TAGS

HOLY HOTNESS DOES ENTANGLE HAVE THE MARKET ON SOME HOT AND HEAVY READS THAT WILL MAKE YOUR HEAD SPIN! Thank you so much to Dani at Entangled who shared the book with me. I loved the cover right off because let's face it HE IS HAWT! I love a man in uniform. There is something so sexy about them and when I saw this book I knew I had to read it. 

Alyssa has graduated from college and she needs a job so she decides to go back home and get a job at her local bar until she can find a better paying job.Plus she came home to see her childhood best friend Marco who she has secretly crushed on and hopes that he may see her in a different light than his best firnds kid sister and also best friend. Alyssa has Marco for so long that everytime she sees him her heart stops. 

Marco is home from the war recovering from his injuries. He has become a different man after being injured. So working as the bar tender and living like a recluse in his empty house is what he wants to do and where he wants to be. That is until he sees Alyssa applying for the waitress job at the bar. He tells her she cannot work there because it is to dangerous and he can't watch her to protect and also her brother is not having any of that.

What is Alyssa to do when Marco keeps pushing her away? Will she be able to break the barriers and have a relationship with him? Can Marco love her? Will Marco overcome his nightmares and embrass his future with Alyssa? This is a summer must read. It is definately scortching and you will need a swim after reading this book. 

Entangled has some great books that will tug on your heart and make you scream HAWT DAM because of all those SWOON worthy men! Here is the link to check out all there books http://www.entangledpublishing.com/ca...

This is my idea of Marco

Laura Kaye is hit and miss with me. This one was a miss. Story moved along smoothly, but just couldn't buy it. Marco still having issues after returning from Afghanistan hasn't seen Alyssa in a few years, they see each other when she shows up to work at the bar where he works. He's all up and down, hot and cold bi-polar on her. Alyssa's been pining away in love with Marco for years, ok, believable. When they finally hook up (once and only once) they're off again, then it's will you "Marry Me" (really - he's singing the Train song to her) and BAM - we have an HEA, the end. WTH!?!!? I wanted several nice long heated romantic scenes where I got the sense they were an actual couple. Or to quote another Train song (yes, I'm a fan) "let's skip the how you been and get down to the more than friends at last", not to have left me high and dry, no pun intended ;-) all sexually deprived. They do the business once and the guy's flakey throughout the bk and then he wants to get married.
