Not My Kind of Hero by Pippa Grant

From USA Today bestselling author Pippa Grant comes a rollicking romantic comedy about a single mom and a grumpy math teacher tackling their differences on a Wyoming ranch.

I knew fixing up my life with a fresh start on the hobby ranch I inherited in Hell’s Bells, Wyoming, would come with challenges. Things like snow. Wildlife. Local gossip about why my daughter and I are here.

But the biggest challenge?

My surly new tenant.

He’s like a bear. Fascinating from a distance, but don’t get too close, or he’ll bite.

His personality should be a good thing. I have no need of a new man in my life. But he’s not only my tenant; he’s also my daughter’s math teacher and soccer coach. I keep running into him. He keeps thinking I need to be saved.

Maybe I do, but here’s what I don’t expect: he’s a fixer-upper in need of saving too.

And I might be the only woman for the job.

Hell’s Bells, help me.

3 out of 5 stars

Not My Kind of Hero was so flipping cute! It was fast-paced fun with likable characters that had me smiling my way through. I liked Flint and Maisey coming together even though they were fighting their feelings, the entertaining scenes that had me laughing, the camaraderie of the town, and even one very sullen teenager.

I liked Maisey and how she was moving on from a bad marriage, I liked her strength and perseverance. I loved Flint and his grumpy self and how he did so much for so many. The two of them butting heads, in the beginning, was pretty amusing. I liked learning about them, their attraction, and developing friendships. I really liked when they started to open up and become vulnerable. They had a lot of fun scenes together that I enjoyed though the back-and-forth of not wanting to be attracted to the other got a bit repetitive.

This was a fun read for sure however it was one of those books that was easy to put down and I wasn’t in a rush to pick back up. It wasn't super in-depth or deep but it moved at a good pace. Some of it was a bit crazy and predictable but it had its charm. Overall, I found it to be a light and easy read that I enjoyed, just not one that really stands out.
