Sintesi dell'editore

A standalone contemporary romance in the Morgan Brothers series from USA Today best-selling author Lauren Rowe. The story of firefighter Colby Morgan that proves heroes come in many forms....

The first time I laid eyes on Lydia Decker, I couldn’t speak. Or breathe. Or string two coherent thoughts together.

And I don’t mean any of that figuratively.

I’m not talking about a guy being floored by the sight of a gorgeous woman - although, of course, Lydia is gorgeous beyond words.

No, when I first laid eyes on Lydia Decker - my physical therapist - I was lying flat on my back in the ICU, high as a kite on painkillers, breathing on a ventilator, my bones as broken and splintered as my spirit.

When I first laid eyes on Lydia Decker, she was a ray of light in the dark. Hope for the hopeless. A salve for my singed and battered soul.

She said she’d been assigned to fix me. That she was there to bring me back to life. She said helping me was her calling.

And then she touched me. Physically, emotionally, spiritually. She healed me.

And I fell in love.

But what I didn’t know...what I couldn’t possibly know...was that Lydia Decker needed fixing far more than I ever did.

Lauren Rowe you slay me!

Hero, just... Hero!

This book is everything, every bloody little thing, I could ever want in a book.
At eight percent I was on emotional overload. I have absolutely NO IDEA how to put in to words what this story did to me.

Firefighter Colby Morgan is broken in body and mind after an accident during a rescue but when a dark angle enters his hospital room peace settles over him and he is determined to win her heart, soul and body.

Right! Review...... *stares in to blank space*

Lauren Rowe knows how to tell a story and she knows how to build characters. This is not news to me. But this book is in a different dimension from her earlier work. I feel like she took everything good from every other book she has written and put it in to this one story.

- It is emotional like nobodys business.
- It is funny like you wouldn't believe.
- It breaks you.
- And it warms your very soul.

How I wish I owned a poets skills so I could properly express how Hero moved me. I don't unfortunately so you will just have to experience it yourself...

I for one am owned by this story tonight, drained dry, and in need of tissues and a shot of rum.

And when all that is said, the audio, the fabulousness of the narration done by John Lane and Lauren herself is pure perfection.

An incredible story. Definitely a MUST listen

Where does Hero rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is one of the best books I've listened to. The story is incredible and the performance is spot on. It simply brought tears to my eyes.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Lydia was my favorite character. Her strength, inner beauty, hope and determination made her one of the best female characters I've ever encountered

Have you listened to any of Lauren Rowe and John Lane ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, I have. They are a great team and bring these incredible stories to life. But in my personal opinion, this one is their best so far.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

I will leave that one to the professionals. I am not that good in writing stuff :D

Any additional comments?

I love Lauren Rowe's books. She has a unique writing style that has always captivated me, as I am sure it has done with many others. She has made me laugh with her words and just as easily has broken my heart with her incredible stories . But the story she tells with Hero is out of this world. In my opinion, it is one one of the most heartbreaking stories I've ever read. But it is also so much more than that. It is a story about overcoming crippling heartbreak and pain, about healing and finding happiness again. It is an incredible story that should be a must on your bookshelves and one of the must read books for every book lover.

Lydia and Colby are two incredible and captivating characters. But in a big way, I think Lydia stole my heart. I am usually very critical about female characters but this one is extraordinary. I was bawling my eyes out for her within the first two chapters of this book. So be ready with a box of tissues by your side before you even start reading. You will definitely need them. So, be warned. But reading how she managed to pull herself together after probably the biggest heartbreak of her life and finding the strength and desire to help others is simply incredible. Though her heart is still wounded, she finds the strength to continue living. And even braves the possibility for love and happiness again. There is just something so beautiful and hopeful about that that it made her stand out in comparison to other female characters. And I am sure, she permanently has a place in my heart.

But don't get me wrong. I did love Colby too. He is literally the knight in shining armour. I can very easily imagine him as Prince Philip rushing to fight a dragon and save Sleeping Beauty. Or as Prince Charming running to find his Cinderella. He simply has a heart of gold and is ready to give his life for saving another person. Which he actually does for a living. What with being a firefighter and all. And that's what in the end gets him to meet Lydia. Though, I have to say, it might have been easier on my poor heart if they met in normal circumstances ;)

So I am going to stop here because I can talk about this book for hours but I don't want to accidentally spill the beans :D Keep in mind that this is a stand alone. You don't have to read any of the other Morgan Brothers books to enjoy this one. So if you haven't read Lauren Rowe before, be sure to give this book a chance. It is totally worth it. And if you have, then you know you can't go wrong ;) In any case, this is a must read so you should pick your copy ASAP ;)

A POIGNANT YET BEAUTIFUL JOURNEY OF LOVE

In the past Lauren Rowe has thoroughly entertained me with her stories about the loving Morgan men, their sibling dynamics and the tight loving family they, and their parents, make.. but wowee this emotional journey was another step up from just being a 5 star story. Her plots are always filled with awesome interesting characters, great dialogue, smooth banter, sigh-worthy scenes, seismic chemistry, humor, feels, sex, passion, droolworthy heroes and worthy heroines. They’re also peppered here and there with some drama and angst too. But the main ingredients coursing through each and every layer is physical attraction, lust, respect and love.. and, with this story, Lauren went BIG then maxed the Hell out of it.

It was two people’s very emotional and touching journey to the HEA and the challenges they faced together in order to stay together. They had enduring hope, deep understanding, patience and determination to get it right.. and, when their patience finally pays off, there were fireworks, romance and tender rewards. There’s all of my personal favorites here.. sweet, savory, sexy, sizzling, smouldering, sensual, swoonworthy, savvy, serious, scrumptious.. and so much more. Plus the variety, dynamics and interactions of the likeable secondary characters brings smooth quick witted banter, brings family values and brings feel-good feelings of a loving tight family.

Worth a credit? It was a delicious multi-layered emotional treat for this romance lover, the dual POV narration was absolutely perfect and the storyline gently unfurled to reveal a sparkling gem. Colby and Lydia have both been to Hell and back and their story back and then forward (IMO) is the epitome of a great romance.. and YES definitely creditworthy.

In AWE~

I'm in AWE!!!!!

It's not enough that I'm hopelessly addicted to Lauren Rowe. Now shes turned me into a hopeless stalker with her over the top, heart stopping, mind blowing, sentimental, outstanding.....(can't think straight) book "HERO".
The Club series by Lauren won me over at first read. Yeah.... I really like Christian Grey but Jonas topped that for me. (swooning here)

Every book has me thinking it just can't get any better and then she goes and gives us Colby. How can one man be so darn perfect. Even laying in a hospital ICU unit he manages to melt my heart along with Lydia's (his physical therapist). Their story is EPIC! I have no idea how she will ever come close to this kind of perfection again. That once again come from a woman who is in love with Jonas and his crazy money sex :)

Anyway.....this is one author you most definitely don't want to pass up or miss.
Number one author on my must read list!!!!!!

oh the feels...

I finally got to listen to this audio and I don't know why I waited so long! It was utterly fantastic. Loren Rowe sure can write, and also narrated the heck out of this story. I love John Lanes sexy voice, too!

Pleasantly Surprised!

This is my first book from this narrator and author and from the male narrator and I absolutely LOVED everything about this. I laughed out loud so many times and got choked up at times too. These characters are so real! The romance never once felt cheesy to me. I just bought the second book in The Morgan Brothers series and I can’t wait to start it today! I highly recommend this book. I’m sure I’ll listen again and again. The narrators were awesome.

Lauren Rowe can do no wrong!

Colby is everything I hoped he'd be, and his relationship with Lydia is off the charts!
Fantastic narration, as always!
