Greer is back home, struggling to find her way. Everything is going wrong for her, leaving her unable to figure out the next step. Meanwhile, she's stuck doing some community service. Emmett is home, hiding away, since being injured during his military service. Greer showing up at his door doesn't make him happy, but she has a job to do.
Both characters are well established, with their pain and emotions clearly demonstrated. I enjoy the uniqueness of both them and their relationship.
This is a wonderful story that is so much more than a romance. There are so many people who are suffering, and there's a whole lot of healing to be done. Not only do Greer and Emmett need to heal, Ally and her mother are also a large part of the story, with a heartbreaking backstory.
The author does a great job with these multi-layered characters and their even more multi-layered storyline. The storyline is well crafted, easily drawing the reader into this world and keeping us invested.
An Everyday Hero is a great tale of moving forward with the help of others; friends and family. Having enjoyed this one so much, I will need to check out the first book in the series, as well as remain on the lookout for future books.
