Be My Hero starts with a glimpse… Pick is just a child in the foster care system. He meets someone who gives him a glimpse into his future. It’s supposed to be just him, but he see’s someone with him. This is unusual. It’s determined that Pick has a soul mate. His Tinker Bell. He doesn’t know who she is or if she really exists, but he holds on to that hope for ten long years that she’s out there. No matter what direction his life takes, he’s always waiting for his Tinker Bell to appear in his life.
Pick’s life doesn’t go quite the way he imagined it would. He’s marrying his childhood friend so he can help provide for her baby. Tristy is not mother material and after years of trying to keep her safe, keep her clean and off drugs, he’s now essentially supporting her and raising her child. Pick is that kind of guy. He works full time in the garage during the day, and as a bartender at Forbidden at night. That’s where he meets Mason Lowe. Who has a girlfriend named Reese. Who’s pregnant cousin Eva stays with. One night Eva comes into the bar with Reese to pick up Mason. The same day he marries Tristy. From the moment he sees her, feels her, smells her, he knows. It’s his Tink.
Life hasn’t dealt Eva the easiest hand either. She is seven months pregnant and alone with only Reese. When I read <i>Price of a Kiss</i>, I wasn’t the biggest Eva fan. But the more I learned about her past and saw the positive changes she was trying to make, the more I started to love her. When Eva first meets Pick, she can tell there is something there, and that he is a genuine guy. The two develop a friendship over time, only seeing each other sporadically. Just being around Eva is like a drug to Pick. All he wants to do is be with her, but he has this innocent child, Julian, he’s grown to love and care about to think of. For now, just being friends and being near her is enough.
I am not even kidding when I say there has never been a more perfect fictional man than Pick. This guy could do no wrong in my eyes. If there were more men out there like him the world would be a better place. I love reading about a hero with a heart like his. He is the most beautiful man. Even though I couldn’t stand Tristy, what he did just to be able to keep and help Julian was so special and honorable. So many of his actions was just in awe of. They brought me to tears. He deserved so much more out of life than he got. A little piece of heaven is not enough for a guy like Pick- he deserves it all, just like he had in his glimpse. But it seems like thats never going to happen for him…
Eva is a heroine who had so much growth from the first time we met her. I loved watching her change and her character develop. How she was with her child and with Julian was inspiring to watch. I never would have thought someone like Eva Mercer would deserve a guy like Pick, but she did. She was his match and I love what he did for her. Made her feel different than any other man had. He mad her feel loved for the first time, clean for the first time after being with a man.
I loved Pick and Eva together. They had wonderful chemistry and this amazing connection you could feel. The family dynamic was great too. And it was nice to catch up with Reese and Mason. We got quite a bit of them too. My only complaint about this story is the little bit of over the top drama towards the end, but it in no way effected my love for Pick or the book so it’s still keeping it’s 5 star rating along with a place on my bookshelf and favorites list.
Be My Hero is one of the most heartwarming, beautiful and romantic books I’ve read in a while. It left me with such a happy heart when I finished, even if some of the subject matter was difficult for me to read. Trust me when I say you’ve never met such a swoon worthy hero with a heart of gold- you’ve never met anyone quite like Patrick ‘Pick’ Ryan. This is a story about fate, about true love, and about finding your own happy ever after in the most unlikely of places. I can’t recommend this one enough!
This is new adult, with the heroine being 19 and the hero 24, and sometimes it had a young feel, but other times the couple seemed older than their years, probably because they've both had a lot of pain in their childhoods. At first, the heroine Eva was selfish and spoiled, but she was also really hurt. Don't want to spoil it for you, why she was the way she was, you'll find out in her prologue, and that might be a trigger for some. And the H, Pick, is damaged too, but is so good and compassionate and works so hard, two jobs, and is so fine and caring. His mother abandoned him, didn't even bother to name him, and he spent his childhood from foster home to foster home.
He's pierced and tatted up, with whole sleeves, and the story behind his tats is so sweet and a little heartbreaking. I just loved him. He's loved Eva forever and was always looking for her. There was no sex, not until about 75% in!, and I normally like it before then, but the real intimacy between this h/H is so nice; like staring at each other, him trying to take care of her, protect her, and her wanting to pamper him and look out for him, and then they are in bed and they just look and touch each other. He'll rest his brow against hers, and it's just that eye contact. The make you sigh stuff. It felt so intimate to me. Sometimes those kind of scenes can be more enjoyable than hot, sexy times. It felt really good.
I was talking to a friend about this book and told her this hero reminded me of Logan Reed, so if you loved that hero, I think you'll love Pick, too. The ending seemed a little rushed, lots of action, and I kept wondering why people just didn't get smarter, but it was fun and fast to read, and the overall romance can't be questioned. That sweet, charming and caring hero makes this story. Romantic hero, romantic love.
5. More Reese and Mason! I loved catching up with this couple from Price of a Kiss plus, we got a lot of time with the men at Forbidden! I can't wait for Quinn and Ten's story! I love these Forbidden men!
4. The storyline was really interesting. There was a little suspense and drama and I didn't know how things were going to turn out - it kept me turning the pages and I didn't want to put this book down.
3. The sexual tension, chemistry between these characters, and the build-up was amazing! I couldn't wait for Pick and Eva to finally get together.
2. Eva - she is nothing like what I was expecting from the previous books. She is strong, smart, and kind. In the prologue, we really get a glimpse into what she's gone through and it was extremely emotional. Her past was nothing at all like I was expecting - it was heart-breaking, uncomfortable and very sad. I really wanted to see her get a HEA.
1. Pick - he is the ultimate book boyfriend. He is sweet, sexy, kind, and loyal. He is tattooed and pierced. He loves kids, respects women, and is a good friend. He is everything a good book boyfriend should be. He is amazing.
I loved this book!!! This has become one of my very favorites series but in my opinion, this particular book was the best in this series so far. I can't wait to read more by this author!
