Publisher's Summary

It’s been over a year since Cassidy Miller retired from the United States Marine Corps, but try telling that to her nightmares. She knew that coming back after eight years in a war zone wouldn’t be easy, but she’d underestimated the real difficulties of transitioning back to civilian life. War is hell, but the aftermath is endless.

Looking for a fresh start, she’s left her friends and career in Minneapolis to be a police officer in northern Minnesota. It’s in the tiny town of Embarrass where she learns more about Julia Desjardin. The city prosecutor is cool, professional, and untouchable. But she and Cassidy have history, and Cassidy isn’t going to let her easily forget that.

For all their surface differences, Cassidy and Julia have more in common than they first realized - both are reluctant to hand over their pasts to be judged and studied. But it might take someone just as damaged as the other to help each cope with the skeletons in their respective closets.

Nope - don’t do it

It’s a clever plot idea but it’s clear the writer doesn’t understand military service. The rhythm is uneven, excruciatingly slow and then jumps ahead. The main problem is that I couldn’t relate to the motivation and action of the characters. They weren’t consistent, seeming to morph into different people.

Worth a listen

This is the first book by this author that I have listed to. I’d love to see where this storyline would continue. It had lots of twists and turns with some obvious outcomes but they didn’t wreck the story. It was a nice love story.

I love the books but the narration...

Lori Prince has always been hit or miss for me. I didn't particularly enjoy this narration as I felt it was read too loud and forceful. It just didn't feel nice on my ears. The series is a great one so I guess I'll just stick reading them.

Stellar

The combination of Eliza Lentzski and Lori Prince is powerful. Both are favorite author and narrator. The story has already been known by many and it has received good reviews all these while. But with the addition of Lori Prince to throw voices for these amazing characters...I really don’t know why any Eliza Lentzski fans miss this? I love the way Julia’s voice was being projected by Lori Prince. It feels so good to be able to hear them.

The story is good. The reading however was confusing. I felt like every sentence was a question. It took a while to get used to the inflections and tones of the performer (reader).

I REALLY wanted to like this book

At the start I did not have high hopes for this book. It started out cheesy and very predictable. Lori Prince is one of my favorite narrators, but she was not on point with this book. All of the elements were there for a great story, but it fell really short for me. I’m giving the author another chance, because I see that there is ability and talent! One exception! The sex AND connection WAS AMAZING! Another reason I’m giving the author another chance! 😏

Don't Call Me Hero

The voice of the reader is very irritating hard to get through this book. I will look more into who the narrator is next time.

Excellent in every way!

This is my first book from this author and it won’t be my last. Excellent storyline and characters. Lori Prince really brings the characters to life with the different voices.

Wounded Warriors

Cassidy Miller returned to Minnesota with PTSD and a Navy Cross. Now a cop she moves from Minneapolis to Embarrass, MN as a small town cop. She and the city prosecutor have history and Julia Desjardin means to collect. Both have wounded souls and seek each other’s touch. Great performance and story. Erotic romance. Recommend.

okay

it was okay, the story seemed predictable. the Military wasn't believable. A Marine would never call themselves a Soldier (?). the only thing they talk about is Oh that bad tine G in Afghanistan. (blah, blah) but that is the worst of the book. it is okay. something to pass the time. Coronavirus 2020

Marines don’t appreciate being called “soldiers”

Being a part of the military community, a few Marine Corps and military errors drove me nuts. Yet there were a few really nice details that suggest research. Other than that, I did enjoy the story. I appreciate the sentiment in covering covering Veterans and the aftermath of combat. The characters are very interesting. I understand that there is a genre where love melts the “Ice Queen.” I imagine this one would sort of fit. I appreciate the details of how two people help one another face their own trauma and demons. Looking more books from this author.

Couldn't Stop Listrning

At last Don't Call Me Hero is finally on Audible. I really hope that the 2 further booksvin this will also be put on Audible. At first I couldn't get on with the narrator but I listened to the book all night. I loved all the characters especially Cassidy, ex-marine, and Julia, District Attorney. Both run in different circles but one thing brings them both together. No spoilers.
