Prior to picking up Hero of my Dreams book one in the Sec Ops Group series, I never knew of the author. My decision to read this book was based primarily on the synopsis. It ended up being a good decision. I enjoyed the story and I am looking forward to reading the other books in the series.

Hero of my Dreams delivered what I would expect from a romantic suspense. A protective and swoon worthy hero, a strong and independent heroine, a romance to warm your heart and a suspense thread which will keep the reader on the edge of their seat.
The romance featured here was authentic and relatable. Edith and Carter, despite their strong personalities, feared surrendering their hearts. Edith never had luck with relationships in the past, while Carter never met a woman who wanted him for himself rather than his millions. The feelings growing between them were a novelty for them both. They had difficulty navigating these desires as a result, with their biggest challenges being communication and the need to control every area of their lives.
The suspense thread was well done, and it had me on tenterhooks. A feeling which intensified when the heroine at one point made a careless decision. Unlike the romance thread, the suspense angle has yet to be tied up. The threat has yet to be neutralized.
The secondary characters stirred the ingredients of the story, which aided in enhancing the flavor of the story. It also made me curious about their stories.
While reading, I discovered this series was a spin-off of the author’s Moon Lake series. A series which I plan to pick someday.
Set in a small town, Hero of my Dreams delivered a solid read which will appeal to fans of the genre.
