Holding Out for a Hero by Codi Gary

 He wasn’t looking for love...

Two years after the death of his wife, Sergeant Blake Kline is still hurting. He isn’t ready to date, but whenever he stops by his local diner and sees the friendly smile of his favorite waitress, he feels a spark of true happiness again. And when her life is unexpectedly threatened, Blake discovers his feelings for her might not be as platonic as he thought.

She was holding out for the hero of her dreams...

Bookworm Hannah York has always been a hopeless romantic—preferring book boyfriends to blind dates—and she’s been day-dreaming about Blake since the moment he came into her diner. She’s convinced they’ll never be more than friends... until Blake kisses her and “weak in the knees” becomes more than just a line from her favorite romance novel. The closer Blake and Hannah get, however, the harder he fights to keep her at a distance.

But forever has a way of sneaking up on you...

When their blossoming relationship takes a complicated turn, Blake will have to face his past… or risk losing Hannah forever.

This was my first book by Codi Gary and the first in the series that I have read, and I'll definitely be coming back for more.

Hannah York has had a crush on the handsome just sometimes broody Sgt. Blake Kline, who comes into the diner she works at, like clockwork. The two seem to have an easy going friendship until Kline saves Hannah from an attempted robbery and all of a sudden he's disappeared. Hannah is confused because she thought something was there between the two of them, at least she hoped. But what she didn't know is that Blake lost his wife to a senseless crime two years ago and the robbery starts to stir a ton of emotions in the standoffish Sargent.

Blake is starting to have feelings for Hannah, but he feels like he's betraying his wife who died two years ago. Is two years long enough to mourn the love of your life? How can he open up his heart to a woman, when his heart is still broken from Jenny's loss.

Hannah and Blake are the perfect pull of personalities. I loved these two together. This was a great read and I can't wait to go back and read the rest of the series now!
