Book Description

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.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A joy to read July 14, 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition
    I am a sucker for a marine. I am also a sucker for a cowboy. So when I discovered that our hero was an an ex-marine turned cowboy I may have done a little happy dance...

    The second book in the Once A Marine series was a delight. From the moment I picked it up I was captivated, because aside of a hot marine-slash-cowboy to sigh over, it has a heartwarming touching storyline that encompasses fear, fight and determination from both our leading lady and gent. And Logan Knight is a gent; a brooding, protective gent with a wonderful albeit tormented heart. I admired Becky as despite her personal tragedy and her own fears, she's a strong, caring and selfless lady who will do anything to keep her daughter safe from her violent ex. With Logan being from a wealthy powerful family and being in the position to help her and her baby girl, Sophie, it had a little of a Cinderella feel to it.

    Passionate and intimate, their journey is one of trust and understanding and with a lovely chemistry was filled with many touching moments combined with those that pulled on the heartstrings. Logan's interactions with Sophie brought the sighs and his dirty talk brought the swoons. He truly was a hero to fall in love with.

    "Swear to God, you walk like that again in that short skirt, and I'm going to drag you into Mac's office, lock the door, bend you over a table and rip your panties off. Again. Christ, I'm rock hard for you."

    Granted it didn't hold any huge surprises but it was a lose-yourself sexy romance. The Knight's were valuable secondary characters and along with those from the previous book (The Baby Bargain), it's opened the door for more. If you're after a gentle but very sexy hero, a loveable lady and a family-feel contemporary romance, then this is exactly that.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Sexy ex-marine cowboy?! Yes please! July 17, 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition
    I ABSOLUTELY ADORED Her Temporary Hero by Jennifer Apodaca! This book took a chunk of my heart and ran away with it. It was incredibly moving, emotional, and sexy! You can NEVER go wrong with a damaged ex-marine cowboy with a body like a god and an incredibly beautiful soul. Her Temporary Hero is book two in Jennifer Apodaca's Once A Marine series, but seeing as I haven't read book one, The Baby Bargain (which just shot up in my TBR list by the way), this can definitely be read as a standalone. I have only been familiar with Jennifer Lyon's Plus One Chronicles, but I have to say, no matter who Jennifer is writing as, it's guaranteed to be a WINNER in my book!

    Becky and Logan's story had just the right amount of romance to make your heart melt. It had the right amount of drama and suspense to keep you on the edge of your seat, and it had the right amount of sex to keep you blushing for days. These two scarred individuals are being beaten down every day because of their past. Logan is an ex-marine with nightmares that are taking a piece of his soul every night. He can't escape them, he can't change them, and he doesn't want to share the burden with anyone. All he wants is his land, so he can turn it into something amazing. Becky is a single mom who is on the run from a crazy ex with wealthy connections. All she wants to do is keep her baby safe, and she will do anything to make that happen. After their intense, unexpected meeting, Logan and Becky immediately feel the intense chemistry between them. These two aren't in a hurry to start up a romance with anyone. They have too much on their minds to deal with anything complicated. But when they both need each other to achieve their goal, circumstances forces them to become even closer.

    3.0 out of 5 stars ...I'm so torn on this... August 30, 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition
    ** spoiler alert ** Okay, not so much spoilers since I am not giving details, but I am going to complain about the ending, so consider yourself warned.

    I don’t know how to rate this book. Until the very last chapter it was definitely at least a 4 star experience for me. I loved it, from Becky desperately trying to make the best of a bad situation to Logan’s damaged determination and protective nature. I thought it did a good job of cracking the lid on what PTSD is without overwhelming the book with information. The characters, situations, and love story were believable and not over the top.

    And then I read the epilogue. And really wished I hadn’t. As I already stated, I’m not going into actual details, but let’s just say before reading this I wasn’t aware that it was possible to have too much of a happy ending. Enough so, that it is unbelievable to the point that it sours the whole experience. I don’t expect in any story for all issues and situations to get resolved, and absolutely every loose end to be tied in a pretty bow. That is just painfully unrealistic, and unfortunately that was very much the case here.

    So, how to rate? If I ignore the last bit I’d say 4 to 4 1/2 stars. However, with the unnecessary and-they-all-lived-happily-ever-after-yay! themed epilogue it more of a 2 3/4. *sigh* Because Amazon requires a star rating, I'm going with a three. But I really don’t feel good about it, as I feel it deserves both much more and less than that.

    I've been waiting for this book ever since I finished Ms. Apodaca's THE BABY BARGAIN. Logan Knight, former marine, has abandonment issues and now, the one place where he goes for solace is about to ripped out from under him by his controlling father. Suffering from combat-related PTSD, Logan will do whatever he needs to to keep the land that keeps him centered. Heir-apparent to the Knight family and their impressive Texas ranch, Logan only wants to build a camp for wounded warriors.

    Becky Holmes was a beauty queen who used her scholarship money to get a college degree and start nursing school. One lapse of judgement left her unmarried, pregnant, and then involved in a hit-and-run with the baby daddy driving--who then beat her. He's out of prison and is now coming after her baby. Becky is as emotionally fragile as Logan and when they find each other, they plan to keep the relationship temporary.

    Logan needs a wife to get the land he wants from his father. Becky needs protection from Sophie's psychopath of a father. It's a win-win, right? Where's the fun in that?!? The author thoughtfully addresses the issue of PTSD and treatment of returning veterans. She weaves a love story about two damaged people learning to love each other and becoming stronger as a result.

    Love the book, the characters, and the author!
