Audrey and the Hero Upstairs – R. Linda


My road to recovery began with Brody — the man who saved my life. 

Without his courage and determination, I’d have died in the fire that took the lives of my entire family. If that’s not a hero, I don’t know what is. 

Brody has been by my side every step… but the emotional scars are as crippling as the physical ones, even if they’re harder to see. The anxiety of being around people, seeing their disgust, feeling their pity — I’m not sure I can handle it. 

Maybe it’s wrong, but feelings are developing between us, leading to stolen glances and sneaky kisses. The problem is I’m not quite eighteen, he’s twenty-five, and we’re living under someone else’s roof. It would be so much simpler with someone my own age, like Bennett, the hottest guy in school. 

How can Brody and I possibly be together? And if we were, how would we explain all this to our friends and Brody’s family — who also happen to be my foster parents? I’ve already lost so much… but can I lose someone who shouldn’t even be mine?

I’d like to thank Lady Amber tours for sending me an e-arc of this book! So if you’ve followed my blog you know that this is not the first book I’ve read by R. Linda and I absolutely love her and have fallen in love with her! I read Bailey and the Bad Boy, Indie and the Brother’s Best Friend, Harper and the One-Night Stand, and Kenzie and the Guy Next Door. So this is the next book in the series and I have high high hopes for this. I was so interested to read about Brody and Audrey because I was invested during Harper and the One-Night Stand, well the one bit of them we saw.

I really loved Audrey, she was such an interesting character and so many of her actions could be understood. I felt so sorry for her after losing her family it was hard for her to interact with another family, and it was nice when she finally did open up to everyone.

I loved the chemistry between Brody and Audrey I really didn’t mind the age gap between them and they had a connection that just couldn’t be broken. I loved when Brody got jealous of Bennet it reminds me so much of Lincon when he had feelings for Indie. Their relationship was great, it was funny how they got Lincoln to tell everyone it just made me laugh in the book! It was just a great thing and the fact both of them were kind of too chicken to tell Leanne and Steve.

I was really glad that Brody and Nate finally made up! Honestly, I thought it was a bit stupid when they fell out especially because Brody hadn’t been with Harper for a while. Sure Nate and Harper should have said something but still stupid reason to fall out so when they made up I was so happy.

Bennett, he is fabulous when I got to the end of this story I was so glad to see that he’s getting his own story! So I cannot wait for that! I loved his character throughout this book he really did become Audrey’s lifeline at school and would keep her company, and they just built a great friendship and I loved their friendship. Hoping to see more of that friendship in the next book.
