My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Small Town Hero by Kim Koby a four-star read that will restore your faith. This is the first book in the Small Town Brides series and it was sweet, and romantic in the best possible ways. This was a great opposite attract, with some added drama as well the pages just flowed from each other with a great flow. The way we see Rebecca with her tough façade (with good reason, with a bestie like hers who needs enemies) and soft gentleness that we get to see when she shows her true self. It was a great development to the story, it wasn’t just this is a scorned woman ohh she met a man and now she’s happy there was detail and structure and a trueness to the flow, It just made it that much more of a stronger story.

Ahhh this book… I didn’t want it to end at all! I love this love story so much! You can feel the love seeping out of it ,through the pages. I’m such a sucker for a good romance story! I will always believe in love, someday I hope to find someone exactly like Ryan! ( haha a girl can dream right ? ) lol
Wonderful job, Kim!! I hope to see more from Rebecca and Ryan again. And I really can’t wait to see where book two takes us!!

Small Town Hero is a sweet, whirlwind romance. Ryan seems mostly down to earth, sincere, and sweet. I do feel he’s a bit impulsive, jumping into things the way he does in this story. Rebecca has just gotten blindsided and lost everything that defines her in this moment. Even though it’s for the better and her personality even shines brighter after it all, I kind of wish she wasn’t so fast to jump in both feet with Ryan. It’s like running from one relationship to jump into another fully formed, super serious commitment. But these two do fall hard and fast and it’s worth it all in the end, which sneaks up on you.

4 out of 5 stars

Small Town Hero is my first experience with Kim Koby’s writing and it also happens to be Small Town Bride book one. I wasn’t sure entirely what to expect with this book but overall I found that I enjoyed it. I was drawn to the storyline fairly quickly, I liked how the book started with a lot of emotion and kicked off right away. While the book wasn’t slow to kick off, I did feel like it took quite some time for me to connect with Rebecca. If I’m
being honest I am still not entirely sure how I feel about her character.
As far as characters go, I did really love Ryan from the start and despite my feelings toward Rebecca, the chemistry between the two in this story was really sweet and undeniable.
Small Town Hero was short and fast paced and honestly kept me on my toes emotionally. I liked that the obstacles Ryan and Rebecca faced were realistic and relatable, really showing that “Trust was vital when it came to love.”
I would recommend Small Town Hero to anyone that enjoys short, clean romances and after the way Kim Koby ended this book I am looking forward to reading more in the series. This doesn’t have a cliffhanger ending, Kim Koby just sets us up well for who will be the next to share their
story.

Small Town Hero (Small Town Brides Book 1) By Kim Koby. This book was everything I was looking for to read right now. From page one I was drawn in and completely hooked until the last page. I read it in one sitting because I just couldn’t stop. Rebecca and Ryan just have this incredible connection you feel jump off the pages. Rebecca and Ryan both know heartache and while Rebecca’s is a little fresher they are each trying to find their footing again. The author writes a story that comes alive in you mind and has you feeling all the emotions written in the story right in your own heart. I was rooting for these two amazing characters all the way and love them so much. I’m excited to see where the author takes readers next. I’m definitely adding this one to my read again list because I’ll need to revisit Rebecca and Ryan again for sure. I’m giving this book a five star review and highly recommend it to all the romance readers out there!

5 out of 5 stars
Small Town Hero is the first book in the Small-Town Brides written by Kim Koby and it’s the first book that I have read by this author. I just loved Ryan and his beliefs and how he is an all-around great guy. Then you have Rebecca she has standards and beliefs that she stands by. This is a love story about betrayal, finding oneself, new beginning and finding the one love.
After a crushing betrayal, Rebecca spins out of control when she catches her fiancé and best friend in bed together. She was saving herself for marriage. Grief-stricken and desperate, she finds herself stranded in Tennessee and forced to rely on the kindness of a stranger.
Ryan knows heartache the only woman he loved walked away the day he proposed to her. He knew in that instant he’d never trust his heart to another. At least he has his dog to keep him company and a good job as a local firefighter.
When Rebecca ends up in Ryan’s path, they blend like oil and water. While he’s content with what life gives him, she escapes by seeking her identity in expensive things. Can two broken souls find salvation with their complete opposite?
I highly recommend this story and can’t wait to see what Ms. Koby has in-stored for us in the next book.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A great read about kindness. After finding out her fiancée cheated on her, Rebecca runs away in her car with no destination in mind. When her car breaks down, a local man Ryan comes to her rescue. She is hesitant at first, as a stranger in a new town, but soon realises there are little other options in the middle of nowhere. While her car is being fixed, she stays at his house for a few days. Will her time there make her think things through?
A great read. Well developed plot. Well developed characters like Rebecca’s harsh exterior but kind nature underneath or Ryan doing the right thing and supportive nature. Also a sweet dog called Chief who will melt your heart.
I loved the visual detail throughout the novel like with Ryan’s little house small but full of colour with gravel path and the garden and kitchen as a cosy place or the calming natural imagery in scenes on the back porch under the stars as a safe space away from it all. I also loved the use of contrasts throughout the novel like city and country, New Jersey and Tennessee, busy and quiet or dressy and casual wear which were combined to perfection to display the differences between the two. and amde for a captivating read. The only issue i would raise is that sometimes the dialogue was repetitive and I felt a conflict int he middle such as the mechanics not having parts or something would have made the ending stronger. Overall, a great read and I would give it four stars.

Four Stars

I belong in a small town. Everyone knows your name and is willing to lend you a hand. Ryan was my dream guy. He seemed like a breeze sifting through the trees. Built like a brick house. Plus he’s a firefighter. Rebecca was a brat at first but you learn to like her. She has been through a lot and Lord knows it’s never easy when your life gets turned upside down. I felt her pain on many levels through this story. If it wasn’t for my kids I would’ve moved to some unknown place just so I could breath again. I liked that the author didn’t rush the characters. But at some points the characters didn’t feel like they had much depth to them. The characters romance was like a slow burn and it made it seem more real in a way.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Small Town Hero is a short, contemporary romance that focuses on renewal and second chances. Our two characters are thrown together under difficult circumstances but find hope and new life in each other. This was an uplifting read and one that I enjoyed from beginning to end.

Rebecca was convinced she had everything figured out, including a loving fiancé who was accepting of her decision to save herself until after they were married. So after finding him in bed with her best friend, she takes off on a journey to get herself as far away from his as possible. Finding herself in Tennessee, we enter Rebecca’s life as she’s at a real turning point. This is exciting as we see her develop from the ‘old’ her to the new, more relaxed version of herself. I loved how sassy she was at the beginning but also that she was aware of this. Her reaction to Ryan had me laughing out loud at points, especially because she was so surprised at herself! As for Ryan, what a complex character! While we immediately focus on Rebecca’s heartbreak, he too has faced some traumatic events in his life. I loved getting to know him and finding out why he is the way he is.

The connection between Rebecca and Ryan feels so natural and is really entertaining to read. I loved seeing them interact and how easily conversation flowed between them, after they had got to know each other of course! This was such a lovely, sweet read and I’m so glad I took a chance on it. I can’t wait for more in this series!
