I just finished reading Hannah’s Hero (Icehome Book 6) by Rudy Dixon. She is one of my go-to reads, so I am always psyched when a new book gets released. Gimme gimme gimme. Of course I loved it. It is definitely not a read-alone book, you need to start from the beginning. There are so many characters and things that have happened at this point that you will certainly have trouble following the plot without reading the previous stories.
The basic plot is that Hannah was about to become A Big Freakin’ Deal back on earth and then wakes up stranded on the ice planet. She resonates to J’Shel–the nicest guy on the beach. Hannah is not well liked by everyone as her stress and anxiety manifest themselves in a need to exert control (mainly over the food supply). Hannah isn’t interesting in becoming J’Shel’s mate because she is still getting over the loss of her career. Hannah and J’Shel, along with another established couple, head to the fruit cave just to get away. And that gives our new couple time to get to finally know one another. IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN.
Hubba hubba. Bow chicka bow wow.
I totally enjoyed this book. What I enjoyed most was Ms Dixon (can I call you Ruby?) took a character, Hannah, who is pretty hard to like and brings you into her head. You get to understand what is beneath the surface of her controlling behavior. And you get to be there as she learns to accept her new life (and mate). I especially like that Ruby doesn’t change who Hannah is fundamentally. She’s real person with flaws but you get to experience growth and personal development together. I enjoy reading a character that is not a cardboard ‘heroine’ cutout that is perfect at everything. Embrace the flaws. I want layers. Like onions. Or parfaits.
Parfait’s may be the most delicious thing on the whole damn planet!
Please don’t turn me in. I’ll never be stubborn again. I can change! Please! Give me another chance!
There is enough negative shit in the world, so I am only going to post reviews for books I like.
