Unlikely Hero (Atlanta Series #1) by Kemmie Michaels : Book Spotlight With Review

                                      Unlikely Hero Spotlight Banner

Erin never would have expected to fall in love. Never. Not with her past, and not with her fear. She never dates; she doesn't even allow herself friendships. She doesn’t trust her judge-of-character skills enough to allow anyone close...until Marcus. 

With him, a deep connection happens in spite of the walls she's so carefully constructed around herself. Marcus uses his self-confessed rage to fuel every part of his life. He survived the severe abuse of his childhood and learns to harness all the leftover anger into MMA fighting. His rage takes a rest, however, the moment he experiences Erin’s presence. 
Marcus dares to make the step that leads to love, one with the potential to heal 
them both.

My Review: 
Unlikely hero is such a sweet wonderful story..

It reminds you of what is important and what is completely meaningless..It displays someone’s strength, even when that person really believes he’s weak..This book is so real..When you see the title, you imagine a flawless handsome man who will rescue the girl..But this books is so much more than that..

>>Erin is the everyday woman, in my opinion. She is driven and smart and knows how to take care of herself, in some aspects more than others…But she still has her insecurities (ok many) . What I did like the most about her was that she is not afraid to be afraid. People usually think that fear is a weakness, when in reality it’s not. It’s ok to be afraid, as long as it doesn’t own you. She may have lived in her safety net for years, but she knows her mistakes and she knows her fears. And then, she just got tired of her coping mechanism so she tried to drop it and rediscover herself. It only needs one action. That first step. Even a purple notebook is enough to start all over again.

>>Marcus is such an injured soul. He has been through so much yet he is one of the strongest characters I ever had the pleasure of reading. He took care of his sister, when he was just a teenager. I cannot imagine what some people suffer from, especially in such a young age. However, despite his strength he still hides from life, just like Erin. Gym-work-sleep doesn’t really sound to me like living your life. More like surviving. He is so different from Erin yet so similar. Their difference is that Marcus is more self-collected and more self-confident. Plus, the fact that he is huge and doesn’t need protecting puts him in another category!!

Erin and Marcus fit like a missing piece fits a puzzle. They are perfect for each other, because and I quote “You get it. You understand me.” That right there is the outmost truth. There isn’t one hero in this book. There are 2 who happened to fall in love with each other…

I couldn’t recommend it any more than I already do..I feel happy and even a stronger person now that I read it..And that is another reason why I absolutely love this book!

Author Bio:
ProfilePicI absolutely love to write. Seriously. I smile darn near the entire time. I'm a total word-nerd. But even more, I love a good love story. I reread the first kiss a few times before I read on...even in my own books. That moment gets me every time no matter how often I revisit that beautiful connection. I dive into every story to the point where I have so many fictional boyfriends that I can't keep track of them all. In the world of reality, I have a loving and tolerant husband who smiles and rolls his eyes every time I tell him about my latest fictional love affair. I have two personality-rich pre-teen boys who keep me on my toes. I have a psychotic Golden Retriever (I was told those don't exist...) and a cat that rules our house. I used to be the queen. Our regal feline has usurped my throne and demoted me to Prime Minister. 
 I studied English/Journalism at Miami University in Ohio, have a Master's Degree in Secondary Education from the University of Dayton and I spent five years teaching even more personality-rich pre-teens. For some sick reason, I actually enjoyed teaching junior high. Now as a stay-at-home mom, I'm clinging to that status by throwing my hat in the author's ring and hoping I get to keep it there.


For the first time in his life, he had the urge to take a woman in his arms and just hold her for hours. He wanted the warmth of his body to melt five years of ice from hers.
He would take as long as needed to break through the depth of the glacier she had formed around herself. He wouldn't let her go until she felt soft, warm, and safe in his arms. If she'd let him. He knew exactly what he needed to write that night.

I will never do anything to hurt you or break your trust and I know I’m probably scaring you right now for asking, but you haven't let anyone in. I think you need that, even if you're scared of it. I want you trust me. I want to help. You’re safe with me. I'm strong enough to protect you. Will you let me?
~Marcus Walker

Suddenly those notes that brought her close to him seemed like a path to her undoing. She had been so safe and closed away from people for so long, she didn’t even realize she had let him in as far as she had. Sharing herself had been too easy in that book, but now look what she had done! She was open and exposed and he wanted to meet her outside of the safety of her journal.
The thought of meeting him terrified her — but not because he scared her. That wasn’t the problem. She was so scared of being vulnerable again. She had worked so damn hard to keep that from happening. And she was scared because she wanted to meet him. Allowing herself the potential to feel something, even something good, made her want to shrink back into the chasm and stay there.
