Publisher Description

Nine years ago, Celine Hernandez broke my heart. Eight years ago, she stomped on it for good measure.  When Celine moved to LA after high school, I enlisted in the Marines. 

After an honorable discharge, I’m home, in Tennessee, living out my dream as a professional hockey player. Now, she’s back in our hometown, filming a movie, and reminding me of a past I’ve tried to forget. 

She’s got her name up in lights. She’s shining so bright; she’s acting like she never left. Celine’s everywhere I go — visiting my Gran, having coffee dates with my sister — and forcing me to remember a time when life wasn’t so harsh. When I was whole and thriving. Happy. 

But I can’t trust those feelings anymore. I’m not the same man Celine remembers. I’ve lost too much, grieved too hard, and am too broken down for do-overs.  

Is my ex-everything a risk my heart can handle? Or is our second chance more sacrifice than salvation?

Loved it

Oh my, what a wonderfully emotional addition Hero’s Risk was to the Tennessee Thunderbolts series. This is Beau Turner and Celine Hernandez second chance at love story and it was one that moved me to tears but left me smiling at the end of their story.

I was riveted to this story from the first chapter to the last. It was well written with characters whose story you cannot help but become invested in and was an entertaining, emotional read.

Beau and Celine have history and it was wonderful until she walked away and broke Beau's heart nearly a decade ago. He joined the Marines but after being honorably discharged is now a professional hockey player for the Tennessee Thunderbolts. However, he is also a veteran, dealing with the very real struggles of PTSD.

When Celine returns to town Beau feels the need to make peace with the past. Can he let down the walls he has built to protect himself and face the past. Can Celine and Beau finally communicate honestly with one another? Will they let the hurts of the past destroy their chance at happiness?

Beau’s PTSD is handled realistically, with respect, integrity and added an additional layer to the overall story; the anxiety, fear and struggles were real and palpable whilst reading. Their journey was like being on an emotional roller coaster but what a journey it was.

Hero’s Risk is a raw, realistic story that was both heartbreaking and heartwarming.

This was an emotional roller coaster and I’m so glad I joined the ride, I loved everything about this book, I adored the characters and I found myself cheering them on as the took a second chance but what made this a very special read was the way this author wasn’t afraid to raise the subject of PTSD and the anxiety and fears that Beau suffered with. Hero’s Risk is a beautifully written journey and the perfect addition to this wonderful series. Great job Ms Azzi.
