    1 thought on “Hero”

    1. I really like the way this woman writes her romances and I'm a sucker for both virginal and tortured heroes. Since this book features both I was destined to love it. It's not perfect but the romance is hot and sweetly tender at the same time, something difficult to come by in most of these books.

    2. 1.5 starsDavid is rescued from an assault by the homeless guy he’s seen hanging around the neighborhood. When he brings Seth home, David finds out that a homeless person can have a whole life hidden behind the grime and tatters. Seth has been living on the street for a while and has a lot of secrets, if the scars on his back are any clue. I’m confused about the ages of these guys, they seem really young, like, around twenty years old if not a little younger. They hook up really fast, too, an [...]

    3. David is a lonely man, working in a bookstore, living surrounded by books in an economically deprived area. On the way home from work one night, (view spoiler)[he is attacked by three gang members, who upon discovering only $1 in his wallet, decide that they will rape him instead of robbing him. When the homeless man David once gave leftovers to rescues him by killing the ring leader with a piece of pipe, David welcomes the rescuer into both his home and heart. Seth, his rescuer, has a history o [...]

    4. I’ve wanted to read this for a long time. Back then, I only had the second short story, so I knew I’d have to locate what comes before first, and then there was more and I just lost sight of it. Anyway, here we go.It wasn’t bad. I feel a little distracted, so that might be to blame somewhat when I say that it also did not blow me away.The thing is… the protagonists are both a little stupid. Concerning safety measures most of all. And general common sense to an extent.David especially mys [...]

    5. Hero wasn’t quite what I expected. I thought it was a sequel to Rust Belt as it was released that way Loose Id. But after writing my original review for Hero I found out something and felt it only fair to rewrite my review. I realized that Hero wasn’t just Rust Belt from David’s point of view as I thought. It was actually the first story in the series with Rust Belt being the sequel. Hero covered scenes that were either not mentioned or just glossed over in Rust Belt, which I enjoyed, but [...]

    6. Really readable. After reading "Broken", which was fantastic, this story didn't quite live up to the same standard of character development and exploration of issues. It just didn't go as deep and wasn't quite as affecting. The conflicts didn't hold as much interest. However, on its own merits "Hero" was very, very enjoyable from start to finish. Great escape fiction. The sex scenes were almost comically frequent, but they were 1. super hot, 2. varied, so I never got bored or frustrated with the [...]

    7. I understand there is a different version, Rust Belt, that actually is better than this version. I liked the story and everything but the characters didn't ring true to me. They sometimes acted so young but am not certain of that. Also for all that Seth went through he still seemed way too tender of a guy. The two also get together really fast, I mean REALLY fast, and I just didn't see the connection between the two. I liked the concept of the story but the story itself, at least in this book, j [...]

    8. I was surprised that this story mirrored Rust Belt so closely, just from a different POV. There were a few new elements but not enough that it should be a different book IMO, although it does stop at a much earlier point than Rust Belt. Not what I expected at all and as such, I don't feel right rating it.

    9. 3.5 starsOne star taken off for the way-too-fast-paced beginning (jesus, I got whiplash) and half off for the sex (which was so hot, but you can have too much of a good thing and in this case, I'd rather have had more plot and smoother transitions).I have it on very good authority (thank you, Heidi!) that this is a great series but even without that endorsement, this one intrigued me enough to want to read the rest.

    10. I don't think this is really contemporary, but the alternate reality differences are so slight that it might as well be (or I'm missing some US reference that makes it contemporary in a deprived area). A pleasant read.

    11. 4.5 stars. What a beautiful story about two guys who could not be more perfect for each other. Both have become isolated and alone and manage to find each other. Just lovely.
