About this ebook

He wasn’t looking for love . . .

Two years after the death of his wife, Sergeant Blake Kline is still hurting. He isn’t ready to date, but whenever he stops by his local diner and sees the friendly smile of his favorite waitress, he feels a spark of true happiness again. And when her life is unexpectedly threatened, Blake discovers his feelings for her might not be as platonic as he thought.

She was holding out for the hero of her dreams . . .

Bookworm Hannah York has always been a hopeless romantic—preferring book boyfriends to blind dates—and she’s been day-dreaming about Blake since the moment he came into her diner. She’s convinced they’ll never be more than friends . . . until Blake kisses her and “weak in the knees” becomes more than just a line from her favorite romance novel. The closer Blake and Hannah get, however, the harder he fights to keep her at a distance.

But forever has a way of sneaking up on you . . .

When their blossoming relationship takes a complicated turn, Blake will have to face his past . . . or risk losing Hannah forever.

ARC Review Holding Out for a Hero (Men in Uniform) by Codi Gary Holding Out For A Hero is much more than the title. Hannah and Blake are two lonely hearts searching for a chance to be whole. Hannah is stuck in her fantasy of what a perfect man should be. Blake is living on heartbreaking memories of a love gone too soon. Basically, Hannah is leading with her heart and Blake his head. Problem is in order to stand a chance at building a future and finding happiness, they have to listen to both head and heart. Not one or the other. One of the reasons that I am a fan of Ms. Gary is that she is not afraid to show the vulnerabilities of the hero. The true measure of a man is not only his strength but the ability to expose his weaknesses as well. Holding Out For a Hero is a story that exudes the power of faith, the strength of love and the pain of moving on in the face of grief. Relate-able for anyone whose ever loved and loss.
