Review: Nobody's Hero (Rescue Me) by Kallypso Masters

Nobody’s Hero by Kallypso Masters
Published: December 22, 2011

Read via Kindle

Synopsis: Retired Marine Master Sergeant Adam Montague has battled through four combat zones, but now finds himself running from Karla Paxton, who has declared war on his heart. With a twenty-five-year age difference, he feels he should be her guardian and protector, not her lover. But Karla's knack for turning up in his bed at inopportune times is killing his resolve to do the right thing. Karla isn't a little girl anymore—something his body reminds him of every chance it gets.

But their age difference is only part of the problem. Fifty-year-old Adam has been a guardian and protector for lost and vulnerable souls most of his life, but a secret he has run from for more than three decades has kept him emotionally unable to admit he can love anyone. Will she be able to lower his guard long enough to break down the defenses around his heart and help him put the ghosts from his past to rest? In her all-out war to get Adam to surrender his heart, can the strong-willed Goth singer offer herself as his submissive—and at what cost to herself?

Review: The first thing I have to say about this book is make sure that you read them in order.  It’s very important with this series that you start by reading Masters At Arms and Nobody’s Angel.  I read Masters At Arms, but didn’t read Nobody’s Angel so at times especially during the beginning it was a little difficult to understand exactly what was going on, but I managed to get through it and the story even with no knowledge of book 2 I was still able to enjoy this book.

This story was of Adam Montague and Karla Paxton who met nine years prior at a bus station in Chicago, Illinois in which Adam saved Karla from a pimp in the bus station and she dubbed him as her hero.  But because of all the loss Adam endured during his life, he doesn’t consider himself a hero to anyone.  Adam just lost his wife Joni of more than twenty years and when he lost her, he had no one left, nothing to live for, but Karla made him see that his life wasn’t over and she breathed life into him once again.  They kept in touch over the years through letters but it’s not until nine years later when she shows up at his club Masters At Arms that Adams starts to see Karla as a woman and not a child.  Their age difference is a big obstacle here since Adam is twenty five years older than Karla and Adam doesn’t think he has it in his heart again to love another but Karla has decided to wage war on his heart.  He even at one point suggests and master/slave agreement just to get Karla to not want a relationship with him, but Karla sticks to the agreement wanting to be with Adam no matter what it took.

While this book does have BDSM in it, it’s more of a love story than anything else.  The sex scenes are hot, the relationship between Adam and Karla is an emotional one and I loved it.  I can’t wait to read Nobody’s Perfect but I will have to go back and read Nobody’s Angel first to read the story that took place prior to the events that occurred in Nobody’s Hero.  If you enjoyed reading this series, I also recommend reading the Club Shadowlands series by Cherise Sinclair.
