AWRW Book Review
I would like to thank the author for the complimentary copy.
Her Own Hero, by Jenn Sadai, is a suspenseful women’s fiction novel about a Vegas Showgirl named Samantha whose life is turned upside down when Mr. Right turns out to be anything but. Following a thrilling series of events, Samantha learns how to take care of herself, becoming her own hero.
Samantha’s life has never been easy. At a young age, she learned how to survive in complete chaos. As a teen and young woman, she uses her looks and her charm to con and manipulate men. That’s until a near-tragedy, where Samantha learns she can no longer rely on men to save her. Samantha reevaluates her life and takes ownership of her mistakes. She realizes she needs to be her own hero.
Ms. Sadai crafted a flawed yet loveable heroine in this ultimate comeback story. While Samantha makes a lot of bad choices along the way, she learns from each one, owning her mistakes. It isn’t until she is prison that it finally comes full circle—being locked up is surprisingly a positive turning point in this woman’s life.
Themes of women’s empowerment are heavy throughout the book. This is not only a thrilling suspense, but an empowering women’s fiction novel sure to satisfy fans of books where the heroine reclaims her power (and her identity) despite the seemingly insurmountable obstacles.
Five stars. I truly enjoyed this book.
