Her Temporary Hero, written by Jennifer Apodaca is a July 14 2014 release from Entangled Publishing and the second book in the Once A Marine series.

Set in a small Texan town, Becky Holmes is on the run from her baby's daddy, son of one of the richest families in town.  He's dirty dirty dirty and is stalking Becky to get custody of their baby.  Becky is sent to goooorrrgeous ex-Marine Logan Knights house to hide out, her boss's cousin's house, thinking Logan will be away for a while.  Logan isn't away, comes home, tired and exhausted, to an unknown lady in his bed accompanied by an unknown baby and an unknown dog.  He's NOT amused!  After calming down, he agree's to give Becky and baby home for the night, last thing he can do is turf them out.

Becky isn't the only one with a problem she needs a hand with.  Logan needs to be married by his 30th birthday in order to have his asshole father sign it over to him. Logan works the land, loves the land and has dreams for the land. A temporary wife should be ok... he can help Becky keep custody of her lil baby and he can earn his land.

Becky is a young, lovable gal who just wants to do right by her baby and certainly doesn't want to loose the baby to her dirty, criminal and scary ex.  She regrets being sucked in to thinking her ex thought of her more than just a trailer park girl.  Working nights she's saving as much as she can to fight the custody battle.  I love Becky's mix of innocence and hard working ethic.  Becky lost her momma recently and feels the weight of the world on her shoulders.

Logan. Oh yes, Logan.  Southern gentleman with a backbone of steel.  He's left the Marines and now works for Once a Marine Security Agency. He's haunted by what he's seen and done.  A decade in the Marines have helped him chose his future dream and he's not about to let his father stand in his way.  Logan is haunted by the past and tells Becky straight up he's going to be no good with the babe.  Logan's inbuilt passion for doing the right thing see's him taking care of Becky as well as fighting his feelings.

Her Temporary Hero is such a fab read filled with great lines.  It's full of explosive action, fast paced adventure, mind blowing passion all mixed in with some good ole southern lovin!  The characters are very very likable and things move at a great pace.  If you've read Entangled before you'll know what I mean when I say this is an Entangled story through and through. The amount of passion, the adventure, the engaging characters all kept me fully engaged until the heartbreakingly thrilling finale.

I'd totally recommend this book and I will be looking into the other Once a Marine series.  I loved Logan enough to want to know him in real life.  For $1.99 at Kindle you can.not.go.wrong.  I would have paid more!

Thank you Netgalley for the opportunity to offer an honest opinion :)
