THE HEART OF A HERO by Susan May Warren, Reviewed by Nicole Cook

“Oh, she loved this man. And it could really hurt. But maybe it was worth every single crazy, dangerous moment of it.”

The Heart of a Hero
, the second novel in award-winning author Susan May Warren’s Global Search and Rescue series, takes readers to the beautiful island of Key West, where a relaxing trip to the beach quickly turns into a rescue mission as a devastating hurricane threatens to destroy the lives of everyone in its path.

While The Heart of a Hero can be read as a standalone novel, the story begins a week after the conclusion of The Way of the Brave, the first book in the series. There are some secondary storylines and characters featured in both books that play a role throughout the series. Therefore, I do recommend reading this series in order to get the maximum enjoyment of all the storylines.

Readers were introduced to former SEAL Jake Silver in The Way of the Brave, and he is still dealing with the pain of his prior mistakes, including those with Dr. Aria Sinclair. When Aria is caught in a deadly hurricane, can Jake overcome his past and come to her rescue?

Jake and Aria’s story is a heartwarming tale of second chances, redemption, and rediscovering faith. Charming and charismatic Jake Silver stole my heart ever since I met him in The Way of the Brave, and I have been rooting for him to get his happy ending. The banter between Jake and Aria was so well done, and one part of the novel even brought me to tears. Get ready for a dangerous, action-packed, wild ride to romance. This is Susan May Warren at her best!

The Heart of a Hero is highly recommended for readers of action-filled contemporary romance.

*I received a complimentary copy of this book from Revell and was not required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are mine. Faith message rated a 3.

“I know Jesus is in you, Jake. There’s just too much hero in you not to see it. Now it’s time for you to open your eyes and see it too.”

Back Cover Blurb:
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?
