Summary

It’s been over a year since Cassidy Miller retired from the United States Marine Corps, but try telling that to her nightmares. She knew that coming back after eight years in a war zone wouldn’t be easy, but she’d underestimated the real difficulties of transitioning back to civilian life. War is hell, but the aftermath is endless.

Looking for a fresh start, she’s left her friends and career in Minneapolis to be a police officer in northern Minnesota. It’s in the tiny town of Embarrass where she learns more about Julia Desjardin. The city prosecutor is cool, professional, and untouchable. But she and Cassidy have history, and Cassidy isn’t going to let her easily forget that.

For all their surface differences, Cassidy and Julia have more in common than they first realized - both are reluctant to hand over their pasts to be judged and studied. But it might take someone just as damaged as the other to help each cope with the skeletons in their respective closets.

Couldn't Stop Listrning

At last Don't Call Me Hero is finally on Audible. I really hope that the 2 further booksvin this will also be put on Audible.

At first I couldn't get on with the narrator but I listened to the book all night.

I loved all the characters especially Cassidy, ex-marine, and Julia, District Attorney. Both run in different circles but one thing brings them both together. No spoilers.

I love the books but the narration...

Lori Prince has always been hit or miss for me. I didn't particularly enjoy this narration as I felt it was read too loud and forceful. It just didn't feel nice on my ears. The series is a great one so I guess I'll just stick reading them.

The story is good. The reading however was confusing. I felt like every sentence was a question. It took a while to get used to the inflections and tones of the performer (reader).

I REALLY wanted to like this book

At the start I did not have high hopes for this book. It started out cheesy and very predictable. Lori Prince is one of my favorite narrators, but she was not on point with this book. All of the elements were there for a great story, but it fell really short for me. I’m giving the author another chance, because I see that there is ability and talent!

One exception! The sex AND connection WAS AMAZING! Another reason I’m giving the author another chance! 😏

Stellar

The combination of Eliza Lentzski and Lori Prince is powerful. Both are favorite author and narrator.

The story has already been known by many and it has received good reviews all these while. But with the addition of Lori Prince to throw voices for these amazing characters...I really don’t know why any Eliza Lentzski fans miss this?

I love the way Julia’s voice was being projected by Lori Prince. It feels so good to be able to hear them.

Don't Call Me Hero

The voice of the reader is very irritating hard to get through this book. I will look more into who the narrator is next time.

Eliz Lentzski Is a Great Story Teller

I initially chose not to listen to this book although I have read several books by Eliza Lentzski. I have avoided military related characters and themes for the last year and a half after leaving a relationship with a veteran. There is more to that story but this is a book review. Ms. Lentzski has a way about writing that cuts through all the bs and writes about true vulnerability in her MCs. I struggled with one of the MC's treatment of a potential.love interest..her behavior at times was triggering for me. once the story continued to develop and I kept listening I was enthralled. It was as if the non military MCs suffered from PTSD. Lentzski tells a story of the hidden scars we all.have; some people have scars more devastating than we can imagine. Thank you Ms. Lentzski for sharing your gifts of storytelling with all of your readers. This book will.resonate with me as I allow my authentic self to be seen.

Amazing

Everything about this book is wonderful. The storyline, characters, descriptions. Having had family in both the military and law enforcement, I was really able to appreciate the attention to and inclusion of small details.

As an added bonus, Lori Prince's vocal changes with each character really help the story to come alive even more.

Honestly, you just can't go wrong with this one!

Excellent in every way!

This is my first book from this author and it won’t be my last. Excellent storyline and characters. Lori Prince really brings the characters to life with the different voices.
