Sergeant Oliver Martinez joined the military to serve his country—not plan parties. But after a run-in with his commanding officer, Oliver is suddenly responsible for the Alpha Dogs Training Program’s upcoming charity event. Worse, he’s got to work with the bossiest, sexiest woman he’s ever met—who just happens to be the general’s daughter.

When it comes to military men, Evelyn Reynolds is not interested. And with the opportunity to launch her new PR firm at the charity event, she doesn’t have time for some sexy, arrogant jerk with a hero complex. Evelyn is determined to keep things professional—if only she can ignore how Oliver’s muscles fill out a t-shirt and the infuriating way he makes her heart pound.

But when tempers flare and a scorching kiss turns into so much more, Oliver and Evelyn will have to decide if this attraction is forever…or just for now.

Codi Gary's I Need a Hero is a delightful introduction to what I think will be a sweet and sassy new series. In I Need a Hero, readers are introduced to a group a brand new characters, starting off with Oliver and Evelyn. I loved them. Their flirtatious banter was just enough to get me smiling. Both strong and resilient characters that knew from the start it was inevitable... They will fall for each other so why fight it? I Need a Hero had everything I look for in a Codi Gary book. Lovable characters that find themselves in the best situations... Fun and witty banter... Great friendships... And much more. However, I would have been over the moon with this little novella if it was a full length book. While it is the perfect length to give readers a little nibble of Codi's fantastic writing, I felt the short length left me wanting much more in terms of the budding relationship between Oliver and Eve. I could tell that there was more to their story and I desperately wanted to spend more time with them. One of the reasons why I'm excited that it is the beginning of a new series is because I hope we'll be able to revisit them later on. Plus we get to spend time with some adorable rescue doggies and hot military men!

I truly enjoyed I Need a Hero. I'm so excited to dive back into Codi's writing with this brand new series. If you are new to her books and adore contemporary romance, pick this novella up. Not only do you get a taste for Codi's writing, but you also get a sweet and short romance in the process.

An obsessive bookworm, CODI GARY likes to write sexy small-town contemporary romances with humor, grand gestures, and blush-worthy moments. When she’s not writing, she can be found reading her favorite authors, squealing over her must-watch shows, and playing with her children. She lives in Idaho with her family.
