What's not to love about a hero?

Michelle is heading to a cabin she rented to escape the current mess of her life. She's just caught her fiancé cheating with her best friend, and realizes that while she's mostly story about losing her best friend, she needs to get out of town fast and get herself together. Her car breaks down right before a snow storm, and just when she thinks she might be rescued, the rescuers turn out to be thieves and attackers. She is rescued a second time by a sexy fireman on his way home from his shift. Jason (sexy fireman) is able to get them both away from the attackers, but at the expense of their vehicles. Now they stuck in the Colorado wilderness in a strong winter storm. As they struggle to survive the night, they find they are extremely attracted to one another and both hope that there may be a future with the other if they can make it through the night and out of danger.

I thought both main characters were very likable. They are both sexy and the author does a good job of helping the reader feel the chemistry and sexual tension between the two. The story was exciting, but there weren't a lot of surprises in terms of the plot. That said, if you are in the mood for a classic romance with an enjoyable story, some good steam, and a little action- this is for you. I would have liked a little more length, but probably because I enjoyed these characters and would have enjoyed spending more time with them and seeing their story develop even further.

The narrator has a very nice voice, and does a good job of relaying Michelle and Jason's story.

Great Read

Mountain Hero was a great read by Cheryl Yeko. Michelle is trying to escape her life and find some rest and relaxation in the Rocky Mountains. Unfortunately on her way, her car breaks down. Her day gets worse when two men try to take advantage of her. She meets Jason when he tries to rescue her from the men. I loved Michelle and Jason's story and can't wait to read more by Cheryl Yeko.

Good short story

I got this ARC via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. This was a good quick romance. Some of the scenes were unbelievable such as trudging two miles in the snow with just a sweater and sneakers. But the rescue and subsequent scenes were well written. Loved the switching caves scene and the brother finding them. The narration was very well done and made the story come to life.

Hold Me Closer Hottie Firefighter

YEKO gives the reader a solid scenario. Michelle is scorned and in need of saving. Jason, a firefighter, is a natural-born knight in shining armor. The bad guys are bad. They provide the initial burst of adrenaline that Michelle and Jason run with all the way to the end.

MOUNTAIN HERO was a nice nugget of a romance. Being short it walked the line of a perfectly paced build. The action and story are evenly paced and developed. Jason's calm and strength make him easy to fall for. But Michelle was a little uneven. Understandable, but her character bounced back and forth between "save me" and "I'll save myself". It made it a little hard to see what Jason saw in her. But who am I to deny some much-needed body heat in a mountain storm.

ALAN TAYLOR was kind of stoic with a touch of fire that made him a perfect voice for Jason. It matched his calm with something yummy just underneath the surface. But he did lack last touch of huskiness that would have brought home all the FEELS.

Don't bother!

There was nothing original about this story. The narrator did a good job considering, I won't put him on my black list as I will with the author. I can't recommend this book to anyone!

Scratching my head

I don’t get it.

The sole female character is just embarrassing. She embodied just about every outdated romance heroine trope possible. It pained me as she was infantilized throughout.

The narrator, Alan Taylor, has a lovely, easy voice. That being said, he sounds like an older gentleman and hearing him read this felt wrong. It was like my dad was reading me a romance and that is...not sexy.

I also don’t get the steaminess rating. Hot damn? At best, it is simmering. Instead of sweet, romantic love story or a hot, sultry affair, it felt like a failed attempt at both. It was just cringe worthy across the board.

Read at your own peril.

Likeable characters+well written romantic suspense

I recently listened to this on Audible immediately after another novel (by a different author) with the identical premise – two strangers snowbound, falling in love. While both stories were short (about 3 Audible hours), and the characters had good chemistry, fell in love/lust during their forced time together, I found this to be the superior of the two stories. That’s because neither the hero nor the heroine swore in a jarring manner, and the sexual tension between them built at a better pace. The couple was respectful to each other, and able to resist their sexual urges for longer. For me, this somehow elevated the quality of the story. Add in a little danger and suspense, and the story became a thrill to finish.

Author Cheryl Yeko is a happy discovery for me. I’ve gone on to listen to this entire series. She consistently writes likeable main characters, and compelling romantic suspense stories.

The narrator, Alan Taylor, was new to me, but I found his voice sympathetic and easy to listen to, even when he was reading from the heroine’s point of view. I look forward to hearing him narrate again.

I can't even

Please tell me that no one is as stupid aa the heroine in this story. I know it's a short story but dang it is the most unrealistic winter story I have ever read. I mean what are the odds of two caves being in the woods that you found in the middle of a blizzard at night with only a jacket on with no sweater on that you can make multiple trips to the car. And you find the second cave and make multiple trips to the car and go back to the orginal cave in 48 min. Yeah that's real realistic. I know there are plot devices and things to move the story forward but if your heroine is to dumb to live what's the point.

Alan Taylor is a fantastic narrator.

First time I’ve listened to Alan Taylor or a book by this author. It was great but way to short.

Sexy and Romantic...

An almost old time romance with a hero, a damsel in distress, a lot of chemistry and some action too. This novella is romantic and sweet, with a bit of spice. Easy to listen to, it makes for a wonderful little bite of escapism. If only heroes like this really existed!
