Publisher's Summary

Reluctantly famous, First Officer Cole Langston finds that being in the spotlight has its advantages - until he meets Olivia. Having women throw themselves at him everywhere he goes becomes a serious problem when he's trying to convince her that she's the one. Olivia has trouble trusting a guy like Cole, and everywhere she turns she sees reasons to run. But he's the only man who has ever seemed to understand her as an artist and as a woman.

Cole is working overtime to prove to Olivia that he's serious, but her deep-seated mistrust and his entourage of unwelcome fans may be more than they can overcome....

    "Delightfully humorous read!"

    Vikki's Musings

    I recently discovered this book through the Kindle Unlimited program and was able to purchase the audible for $1.99. I have loved The Gansett Island series by Marie Force, so I eagerly downloaded Everyone Loves a Hero. As usual with Ms. Force’s books, I enjoyed another delightful read!

    Cole Langston is considered a hero after saving a fellow pilot when the man had a heart attack. While standing in line to buy a package of Mentos, he steps in to defend the newsstand clerk at the airport and ends up on the wrong end a meaty fist and is thrown into a Washington Redskins display. After blacking out for several minutes, he opens his eyes and sees a striking young woman with long dark hair and big brown eyes hovering over him, the same individual he was defending.

    Olivia Langston has not had it easy. At twenty-seven, she is working in a low-paying job while trying to finish her business degree, although, she’s an artist at heart. Cole is the first person to see that in her. While she wants to trust in his love, she wary, especially since his celebrity status has women throwing themselves at him wherever they go.

    Can Cole overcome her mistrust, or will the secret he keeps tear them apart forever?

    I thoroughly enjoyed Everyone Loves a Hero. This is a character-driven story, showing how this couple can find true love amidst the chaos of their lives. The plot weaves in nicely, helping to showcase their character arches. The pacing is excellent and kept me engaged.

    Olivia’s character pulled me in, and I became fully vested in her and liked her a great deal. Now at times, I did become a bit frustrated because of her mistrust and unwillingness to believe Cole is truly in love with her. However, I rooted for her thirst for independence. In this day and age, it is unusual for a young woman to still be living at home with her parents.

    Cole is a great hero! I fell in love with him from the start. Although, he has a strong reason to avoid emotional attachments, since a woman from his past is obsessed with him and is constantly trying to interfere in his life. Yet, he immediately recognizes that he has fallen in love with Olivia. Of course, he has been involved with a lot of women and has to un-entangle himself from these many “friends with benefits” relationships. Normally I struggle with a male character who in essence has been a man-whore, his ability to know when he has found the right woman for him kept me from disliking that aspect of his personality.

    Tanya Eby is a great narrator, and I enjoyed her performance a great deal. While she reads with emotion, her narration is so smooth and un-intrusive, it’s is easy to become lost in the story. She does an excellent job of giving each character a distinctive voice. Cole actually sounds like a male, which is a great feat, since so many times, the males with a female narrator sound way to feminine. I will definitely be looking for other audio books she has narrated.

    Everyone Loves a Hero has great though flawed characters, a bit of humor and a great love story. I am glad I found this book, and I highly recommend it. Happy reading!

    "Uhm... No"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I'm not really sure. Unless you're into the whole "let's have sex after just meeting and oh I love you regardless of not knowing anything about you" And the hero? Really? I was turned off by him Breaking up with his other "girlfriends/friends with benefits" while on a weekend getaway with the "heroine". Just no.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Marie Force again?

    As long as it's not sex in every chapter...


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Tanya Eby?

    Yes. That's a reason why I decided to listen to it. I'm a fan of Tanya Eby audiobook narrations.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Everyone Loves a Hero?

    I'd rewrite the whole book.

    "Not worth buying"
    What disappointed you about Everyone Loves a Hero?

    I have listened to 1/2 of the book and it is boring. I do not care about the characters. There is no sparkle. Nothing I have heard so far makes me want to continue to listen to the book


    Would you ever listen to anything by Marie Force again?

    I will try her again, maybe this is her off day book.


    What didn’t you like about Tanya Eby’s performance?

    I do not like her voice for Cole, he sounds like a very young experienced kid. Her reading of this book has no feeling.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I am returning this book.
