About the Author
Nic Starr lives in Australia where she tries to squeeze as much into her busy life as possible. Balancing the demands of a corporate career with raising a family and writing can be challenging but she wouldn’t give it up for the world. Always a reader, the lure of m/m romance was strong and she devoured hundreds of wonderful m/m romance books before eventually realising she had some stories of her own that needed to be told! When not writing or reading, she loves to spend time with her family–an understanding husband and two beautiful daughters–and is often found indulging in her love of cooking and planning her dream home in the country. You can find Nic on Facebook, Twitter and her blog. She’d love it if you stopped by to say hi.

Some sexual content
Is family always blood?
Charlie Matthews is a second-grade teacher who sees paramedic Josh one day across the playground, where he is tending to one of the children who has fallen and broken her leg. Without saying a word to each other, both men register an intial attraction and on their next meeting at the school, impulsively arrange a date.
There is a sense of predictability about Charlie's Hero but as a fan of sweet contemporary romances this just means that I am able to truly escape into the story. It helps that Nic Starr's prose flows freely and that Charlie and Josh are not angsty characters, although they each have their own family issues.
As much as I enjoyed the story I feel unable to give it 5 stars because of the frequent sex scenes - which seem to follow a current trend in M/M contemporary fiction. For me, this removes much of the 'magic' and intensity of these moments as I end up skipping through pages to return to the story.
Charlie's Hero has some strong secondary characters, in particular, Andrew who is Josh's brother, Simon and Patrick and I really hope to see how the stories of these men develop.
Charlie's hero is a story about love, acceptance and real family and I would recommend it to fans of the genre.
