Jake Silver may not be able to put the memories of his time as a sniper and Navy SEAL behind him, but at least he can put his skills to use as a part of the Jones Inc. rescue team. Saving the life of pediatric heart surgeon Dr. Aria Sinclair on Denali helped too. Now he can’t get her out of his head, and when he hears she is in the path of a hurricane down in Key West he can’t help but jump on a plane to rescue her.
Aria has dedicated her life to helping children born with defective hearts. After all, she was one of those children. Now driven to succeed, she lives a lonely, stressful life. One she would have lost on Denali if it hadn’t been for Jake. Jake is exciting and handsome, but he’s also dangerous, and she’s already lost one person she loves. She can’t bear it again.
It’s not until she finds herself trapped in the middle of a category 4 hurricane that she can admit she needs Jake desperately. With their very survival in the balance, can they hope for a second chance at life . . . and love?
The Heart of a Hero by Susan Way Warren was perfectly woven in a way that had me never wanting to leave the book. The cast of characters were charming, strong, and determined to help those in need. I loved how the alpha heroes also had a female hero to round them out. There are times when the guys need rescuing too. But who’s counting how many times someone save someone else? Apparently, Dr. Aria does. She knows Navy Seal, Jake, has rescued her butt more times than she wants to remember. I love their banters. Jake struggles when it comes to handling a woman like Aria. She’s complicated, strong, and doesn’t want him to save her. But that’s just who he is. The suspense and danger escalated into a tense situation. I loved all the moments where I felt like this is going to be the end…and then was surprised.
