Former beauty queen Becky Holmes and her baby are on the run from her dangerous ex. With her dreams of love and marriage destroyed, she’ll do anything to protect her child…even agree to hide out in her boss’s cousin’s house while he’s away.

Wealthy, sexy, and emotionally haunted Logan Knight needs a temporary wife to get his land, per his dad’s rules. No wife, no inheritance. But when that wife lands on his doorstep and comes with a baby, his darkest memories are triggered. He tries to keep his distance, but his efforts are shattered when he starts to have real feelings for his fake wife and child.

Just as Logan begins to think he may have a future with Becky, his attempt to have it all backfires into a betrayal that forces Becky into a heart-wrenching choice no woman should ever have to make.

Erin: Her Temporary Hero is the second book in Jennifer Apodaca’s Once a Marine series, and this one is a fabulous addition! This book has the perfect combination of romance, drama, and characters that will keep you turning the page. Add in an adorable baby, and yeah, this one will make you all melty and smiley. The hero isn’t too bad either!

Logan Knight is a gruff, brooding ex marine with PTSD who needs a wife in order to get his inheritance and former beauty queen Becky Holmes needs a place to hide from her abusive ex. This sounds like a perfect set up, right? Well it is, especially when Logan and Becky connect so fully. I liked these two together. Both are brave and likable. Logan is sexy and protective. Becky was sweet and sassy. These two had lots of chemistry together and their romance was all kinds of swoony. I always love a dual POV story, especially when it’s well written. The story moved along seamlessly and the little bit of drama kept me thoroughly engaged until the end.

I’m really looking forward to the next book in the series, so be sure to check this one out!


Erin is a book addict! She loves books of all kinds, but her favorites are Contemporary Romance or YA (and she reads both boy/boy AND boy/girl, sometimes even girl/girl!) She's been reading since she could hold a book in her hands and doesn't see that changing any time soon. Give her a Coke, kick ass tunes from her favorite playlists, and a book, and she's in reading heaven.

She's a Texan, though she drinks her tea plain and NOT sweet. She loves cheesecake, strawberry limeade's from Sonic and her favorite color is purple. In her books, she loves an HEA, but she never minds if the road is rough to get there, as long as the reward is worth the struggle.
