Review: No One's Hero by Kelly Walker
I began reading No One's Hero with some trepidation, I requested No One's Hero without knowing it was the second book in a series. After looking at the synopsis for both books it looked like this could be read as a stand alone as No One's Hero follows different characters to the previous book.
Lexi is escaping the pressure from home and going to college hours away, but her plan doesn't go like she wanted it to and she finds herself accompanied by Kevin, her bodyguard hired by Axel to keep her safe from Nick. Her only reason for agreeing to this, is that Axel will support her Mum, Dad, and her studies while she is away.
No One's Hero was a quick read, one I finished in a couple of hours, and while I did enjoy it there were a lot of references to Nick and what happened in the previous book, which made me occasionally think I was missing out on something.No One's Hero can still be read as a standalone and still be enjoyable even with the references to what happened earlier on. No One's Hero has romance, mystery and some great friendships that really stand the test of distance and events. I liked getting to see the different aspects all combine together to make an interesting read.
I did manage to guess who was responsible for things happening that Lexi was getting blamed for, which is an achievement for me, although I did not guess the full list or how things were getting done, but I still liked seeing all the dots connect. A certain aspect of the book however was slightly unbelievable. I don't want to say what it really is, but how easy this was smoothed over even with the back story to go with it, just didn't sit right with me. It felt too easy to be resolved without a lot of heartache and feelings of loss rising to the surface.
Overall No One's Hero was a good read, and I intend to tackle the first book in the series to see what I potentiality missed out on.
