When sensible schoolteacher Ella Lucas rides into her home town on a Harley and seduces the resident football hero, Jake Prince, she figures she can be forgiven and move on. After all, she’s just buried her mother. 

Two years later, back in the city, their paths cross again but this time Jake is in the process of destroying her favourite bar. With her home facing a wrecker’s ball, her school being closed down and her 15-year-old brother hell bent on self-destruction, it’s the last straw.

Throw in a dominatrix best friend who is dating a blue ribbon guy so straight he still lives at home with his mother, it’s no wonder the sanest person in Ella’s life is a dog called Cerberus.

With all this to contend with, the last thing Ella needs is Jake back in her life. But, as fate would have it, Jake is the only chance she has to save her school.

As the school football season heats up, old secrets threaten to surface and Ella takes on greedy developers, school boards and national tabloids. But can she save not just her home, her school and her brother, but also the reputation of the man she’s never been able to forget? And, more importantly, does she want to?

Testimonials for Holding out for a Hero by Amy Andrews:

‘Five stars! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVED this book. It was witty and fast paced, with very quirky characters and an interesting plot line. I fell in love with Jake right off the bat! He was delicious, in a typical bad boy way, with all the right sculptured muscles in all the right places!’…

‘I read many books and I review the ones that mean something to me, the ones that stick with me in some way. HOFAH was nothing like I expected it to be in so many ways. The cast of characters I really loved. The love story is wonderful for the main characters, but this story is about way more than romantic sexual love (but that is SOOOOO Hot). It’s about all the ways love enters our lives. Through lovers, family, pets, friends and even those that have left this earth and are still in our hearts’…

Wendy Curtis.

‘Great book with endearing characters and great flow, a page-turner that made me neglect the rest of my life for a day or two. I will definitely be chasing other Amy Andrews books. Gotta say though, if raw language offends, this is not for you. Personally, I loved the edge, the grit, of it’…

Jennifer Collin.

‘Unique storyline and realistic characters made this hard to put down, brilliantly written’…
