Not a Hero by Cherise Sinclair
Sons of the Survivalist #1
Published 29 January 2019

In the Alaska wilderness, four streetwise boys became men—and brothers.
Now the crazy ex-military survivalist who plucked Gabriel and three other boys from an abusive foster care home has died. But the sarge leaves them a final mission--to revive the dying town of Rescue.
Gabe is done with being a hero.
Wounded in body and soul, the retired SEAL simply wants to remain holed up in his isolated cabin. He sure doesn’t want to be chief of police in some defunct town. But he has his orders.
Audrey needs a place to hide.
After the Chicago librarian discovers a horrendous crime, she wakes to an assassin in her bedroom. Injured and terrified, she flees, covering her trail every inch of the way. New name, new ID. New home. As Audrey learns to survive in Rescue, she begins to fall for the town…and the intimidating chief of police who protects it.
Can the shy introvert and the deadly police chief find a life together?
Despite the discord in town, Gabe is finding his own peace…with the quiet young woman who seems to have no past. She’s adorable and caring and so very lost. But how can he trust someone who lies to him with every breath she takes?

Not a Hero is the first novel of a new series from Cherise Sinclair. While the Sons of the Survivalist series is a spin-off from The Masters of the Shadowlands series you don’t really need to read the previous series to understand this one. Just wanted to get that out there first so I don’t forget. Moving on!
This story is about rescue. Gabe rescuing Hawk, Mako rescuing Gabe, Cazador, Hawk, and Bull, Gabe and his brothers rescuing Mako from his PTSD and seclusion, Mako setting up his will so the brothers would rescue the town of Rescue, Alaska, this list goes on, but I don’t want to tell you the entire story right here. That kind of defeats the purpose of writing a review to make you want to read the book, right?
Audrey is an interesting character in that she does online research jobs for people and she stumbles on to a crime and uses the things she’s learned in her research to survive on the run from the Big Bad. I loved the colourful characters that comprised the citizens of Rescue. My favourites include Dante and Lillian, both friends of the late Mako who adopt both Gabe and his brothers and Audrey when she arrives in Rescue. Dante is like a sweet old papa bear and Lillian is a fiesty old mama bear and I love them so much! Also, I love all that is Bull, he's just awesomesauce. That's right, I said it. I am that person. Bull is awesomesauce and I want to keep him.
Not a Hero was a relatively quick read amid packing up my apartment last month, it was entertaining but a bit predictable. Yet I found it enjoyable and had a good laugh at the moose incidents. Not a Hero has all I like in my brain-reset books. A little danger, some suspense, romance, action/violence, and some laughs. And if you knew my family, you would understand that moving is a stressful time for us so this was the ideal book to return to after a day of packing boxes and all the stress I went through.

Overall, I'm giving Not a Hero 4 stars for entertainment and 3 flames for heat. I rather enjoy Ms Sinclair's books and while Not a Hero steps away from kinkdom, she doesn't lose her flair, so I definitely recommend this book to y'all and hope you give a look.

So, raise your hand if you just spent $60 on Girl Scouts Thin Mint cookies. Oh, just my mum? Yeah, so my mum works with a troop leader and this is not a good thing, y'all. She seriously bought an entire case of thin mints ahead of cookie time. Like we're not going to see a Girl Scout table and run over to it like addicted maniacs and buy a couple boxes anyways. Anyways. I'm reposting the Australian charities list this week because we're having wifi and cable installed next month and I'm doing this using my phone's anchor. Hence the lack of content. I swear, I have plans for my site! Plans that include wifi access... So until next weekend, have a happily ever after and stay safe out there, darlings!
Here are several charities that benefit animals and people that some Australian contacts sent me!
