Her Forever Hero
SIX MONTHS LATER
“You know, it’s customary for the best man and maid of honor to dance.”
Grace was grateful for the few glasses of champagne she’d managed to down before the music and dancing had begun at Spence and Sage’s wedding. Because with Cam in a tux standing before her with his hand out, she felt her insides melt.
All day she hadn’t been able to tear her gaze away from him, and now she was expected to fall into his arms for a romantic song. “Could I Have This Dance” by Anne Murray began playing and a shudder passed through Grace.
She didn’t get a chance to say yes or no. Suddenly she was in Cam’s arms and, dammit all, it was exactly where she wanted and needed to be.
“As we swayed to the music . . . I fell in love with you . . .”
“Don’t sing to me, Cam,” she insisted, her emotions rocky at best.
“I happen to love this song,” he told her as he dipped her backward, his arms cradling her before he lifted her back up and pulled her in tight. When his fingers slipped downward and massaged the top of her butt, moist heat flowed through her, forcing her to stifle a groan.
As he leaned forward, she had no doubt that was his hardness pressing against her boiling core. She also knew she wanted to damn the consequences and have this man again—even if it was only for a single night.
So being more bold than she’d ever been before, Grace decided to take the romance away from this situation—romance she couldn’t handle, sex she could—and she reached between their bodies and lightly rubbed her fingers across his bulging pants. He went stock-still as she reached up and whispered against his ear.
“Let’s get out of here, Cam.”
Cam immediately looked up, ensuring that no one was paying attention to them, and then the dance stopped as he grabbed her hand and led her from the dance floor, and didn’t quit moving until he found a secluded gazebo about a hundred yards away from the party.
It wasn’t far enough, but at least she could get a small taste, have his lips caress hers in privacy, have something to help relieve the ache inside her before they moved on. Without a word, his hand slid down her side and then moved below the hem of her short dress and began traveling upward until his fingers brushed against her silky panties.
She groaned against his neck as she felt her body respond. It wouldn’t take much to fall over the edge if he continued caressing her the way he was.
“You are so wet already,” he groaned before making her whimper as he pulled away.
“Don’t stop, Cam. Please,” Grace begged him.
“We need to get farther away, Grace,” he cried out as she reached down and grabbed his thickness through the pants. She couldn’t go any farther. She needed him now.
Dropping to her knees, she undid his belt, loving the panting that was escaping his throat as he tried desperately to remain quiet, fearful of them getting caught. That was only adding to her excitement.
Finally, she undid his button and pulled the zipper down, and when she freed him of his tux pants, she was the one panting. So solid. So thick. So hot. When she swept her tongue across his head and tasted the bead of moisture there, she had to squeeze her thighs together, she was so turned on. The pressure was almost too much to bear.
She was barely able to suck him into her mouth before his fingers were grasping her hair and pulling her back.
“Enough,” he growled as he dropped to the ground with her. “I need to be inside you.”
Those words were music to her ears. She fell backward and spread her thighs, needing him to cradle himself between them. He didn’t make her wait.
With a quick tug of his fingers, he ripped her panties away and pushed her dress out of the way before his weight rested on top of her.
“You’re so beautiful, Grace. I wish I could see you better,” he said before his lips began nibbling on hers while his thickness rested against her wet center.
“Please, Cam. I need you,” she whispered.
He didn’t keep her waiting any longer. With a hard thrust of his hips, he sank deep inside, and the pressure of being filled by him after so long without sent her spiraling out of control. Her body squeezed around him as she cried into his mouth, his lips now fully over her own.
He groaned as he moved in and out of her, letting her fully enjoy her orgasm, and then he rested between her thighs. She could almost feel the deep satisfaction oozing off him.
“Ah, baby, you always were so responsive,” he said before he began moving again, building the heat right back up within her.
Tugging on the straps of her dress, Cam freed her breasts while trapping her arms at her sides. She wiggled against him, but it was to no avail. She quit struggling when his head moved down and he captured her aching nipple with his teeth while he continued pumping in and out of her moist folds.
When her second orgasm rushed through her she felt him stiffen against her as his body shook, and together they saw more stars than were in the sky above them.
Neither of them said a word as they lay there together, arms linked, bodies close. Music could be heard quietly reaching out to them, but for this moment Grace was in a haven. However, soon that peacefulness evaporated and she knew she’d made a mistake.
Without a word, she stood, rearranged her clothes, and walked away, not with regret, but with great pain to once again leave this man she couldn’t seem to ever stop loving.

To the Hero series. I can't wait to read about Micheal next, hopefully.
I really enjoyed the book and i love these brothers. I was at a point where Grace was getting on my last nerve, i just wanted to shake some sense into her. Once all secrets were revealed, you finally understood what made her into the woman she became. Great read, looking forward to Michael's story!
How i wish,i can get the billionaire aviators series. How come isn't in e-books barnes and nobles? It's in Amazon!
3.5 Stars Reviewed by Angela and posted at Under The Covers Book Blog Cam and Grace have known each other since they were kids. In fact, they’ve had a relationship that ended after Cam left for College. They’ve even had a one night stand not too long ago but nothing ever came of it. Now that both of them are in town, avoiding their feelings is just not going to happen. Especially now that Cam is ready to have more with her. He will be in a position to help her legally and it will finally get her close enough to even attempt to win her heart. I enjoyed Cam and Grace’s courtship. It was adorable how determined Cam was to woo Grace. Lots of flirting, lots of sexual innuendos and he was just so very sweet. Grace on the other hand, is strong, independent and is too proud for her own good. A bit too much for my liking but she’s lucky, Cam has the patience and love for her. What won my heart the most was the secondary stories. Martin Whitman the mastermind of matchmaking had found his own love. Well, it’s always been there and if you have been following this series, you’ll simply say, I knew it. I love that Spence and Sage had a lot of page time. I think they are my fave couple in this series. The banters and jokes between them and the rest of the gang was hilarious. This book is not my favorite in the series but Melody Anne continues to deliver her signature sweet small town story. There was an interesting introduction to Michael Whitman’s story. I’m predicting his story will bring tears to my eyes. I’m looking forward to reading it.
Her Forever Hero by Melody Anne is an exciting second chance romance story. Her Forever Hero is a well written tale with lovable characters, drama, suspense, humor and spice. Grace and Cam's story kept me turning pages until the end, all in one sitting. I enjoyed Her Forever Hero and look forward to reading more from Melody Anne in the future. Her Forever Hero is book 5 of the Unexpected Heroes Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I won a copy of this book from Reading Cafe.
Melody Anne is a genius. Her gift of understanding the human soul, to wake emotions that are hard to revisit and channel all of that frustration, anger and maturity into a heart stopping story is phenomenal. Her Forever Hero is the latest in her arsenal. Grace is the proverbial little girl lost. From the outside looking in she had a life that was better than most but there were secrets and betrayals that have lead the little girl to become untrusting and closed off woman. Cam is the heartbreak she'd rather forget but he has other ideas. I received an ARC of Her Forever Hero in exchange for an honest review. It pains me to see the end of the Unexpected Heroes Series. I have loved ever single member of this family. This family is the epitome of paying it forward. Love brought them together at a time when they needed each other. Deserving of a ***** star review.
In the final installment of her Unexpected Heroes series, Melody Anne delivers Her Forever Hero; an entertaining story of mystery and romance. Ten years after her departure, Grace Sinclair returns home to her Sterling, Montana roots. She stands on the rickety porch of the once proud structure she grew up in. Happy memories and the warmth of growing up in her childhood home weren’t her first thoughts as she stood on the dilapidated porch of the once bold and prominent Sinclair mansion. Rather, the ghosts of a miserable childhood wasted no time in reminding her of the many reasons why she left. She thought about her one and only true love and felt the tightness in her stomach at the sheer thought of seeing Camden (‘Cam’) Whittman again. Much to Grace’s displeasure, their reunion was inevitable. Grace was having her doubts about returning to Sterling. The reason she had left in the first place was to get as far away from Cam as time and distance would allow in order to mend the broken heart he so generously delivered. New York was a colossal failure in the love department the years she was gone. It’s not like her heartless mother, Victoria Sinclair, was ever there for her. The only comfort she and her father ever offered Grace was money—the answer to everything that needed fixing. Grace had a bigger problem. It would seem a large sum of money had been misappropriated under the guise of charity and her name was all over it. Sadly, the only person who may be able to get her out of the deep water she was treading was one Cam Whitman. Melody Anne has penned the perfect weekend read. The pace is quick and the dialogue crisp. The situation is an age-old plot of love gone wrong and too much time between past and present. The plot lends ample opportunity for the reader to engage and interact in the challenge of whether or not the guy and girl will find their way back to each other. Ms. Anne blends a back story of mystery and peril that complements the premise of consistently throwing the two estranged lovers together; forcing them to play nice and find their way together once more. With each turn of the page, the reader anticipates this to be the outcome only to be hoodwinked into yet another roadblock that precludes the inevitable of true love reigning. Ms. Anne carries the suspense to the very end of the read. While her audience may think they have it all figured out, the surprise ending is one that makes this book a worthy read. Quill says: Her Forever Hero is the perfect book to have along for that weekend getaway of R&R.
