Alyssa Scott has two reasons to come back to Frederick and apply for a job at Whiskey’s Music Roadhouse: first, they pay well and second, she would be close to Marco Vieri, her brother’s best friend and her childhood crush.

However, Marco isn’t the man she remembers; after four years of doing what he loved most, being in the Special Forces with Brady, Alyssa’s brother, they walked into an ambush that cost them the lives of three good men and left him terribly injured.

Opening his eyes, he found himself kneading at his left arm, the one that had been torn apart from bicep to wrist by a booby-trapped explosive he barely remembered.
Surgeons had rebuilt his arm as good as could be expected, especially since the nerve damage was so extensive they’d initially doubted he’d have coordinated use of his hand, but the tendon transplant never healed right. His fingers remained weak, and his elbow was stiff as hell.
But the shit with his brain was worse. It blanked out a big spot in his memory and tormented him with haunting nightmares and frustrating apraxia, the occasional inability to say a word and communicate his thoughts. And surgeons didn’t have a fix for those.

Because of his injuries, the imperfect healing and who Alyssa is, Marco fights the attraction between them.

She was his best friend’s little sister. Strictly off-limits. That was guy code 101.

But when a Whiskey’s client tries to rape Alyssa, Marco realizes that his feelings for her run deeper than he thought; he loves her.

Her Forbidden Hero was an interesting story and I enjoyed reading it. Ms. Laura Kaye paints a sympathetic, moving tormented hero paired with a decisive, strong heroine to win his heart. However, I felt some of the secondary characters weren’t deep enough and needed to be drawn out more. 4 stars.
