From Booklist

Insecure and pragmatic, 27-year-old newsstand clerk and part-time business student Olivia Robison refuses to believe the handsome first officer who took a punch to the face defending her from another customer�s rudeness could possibly be romantically interested in her. Especially when she learns that her Prince Charming is the media darling credited with heroically landing a plane and resuscitating his captain after a heart attack. Cole Langston, a self-avowed hound dog with the ladies, is equally nonplussed to discover, from the first touch of her hands as he regains consciousness, that Olivia is the one woman he could really love. As Cole encourages Olivia�s incredible talent for drawing and her love of adventure through a series of carefully planned dates, the two embark on the emotional roller-coaster ride of their lives in Force�s steamy contemporary romance, a heartwarming Cinderella story set mostly in and around Washington, D.C. --Lynne Welch

Yikes. Wow, this was a disappointment. How to count the ways?! I really wanted to love this one, but that didn't happen. In short, this read like a bad B-grade TV movie. You know the type. It always starts with an entertaining idea, then the producers butcher it into something so lackluster and choppy you wonder why you sat through it.

Everyone Loves a Hero is a story of two people who fall madly in love at first sight, and the trials and tribulations that happen when said couple move waaaaaaaaaay too fast into a seriously committed and long distance relationship. And while it started with much potential and had some great one-liners, it quickly sank as the relationship went into nauseating overdrive and the romance turned into a dysfunctional relationship.

Cole is the famous Captain Incredible from Chicago, a co-pilot who landed a jet airliner in a blizzard while saving the pilot from a heart attack. He has met the President, made the cover of People magazine...etc. Moreover, he is an uber handsome chick-magnet that has no noticeable flaws. Seriously, he's borderline perfect in every way. ( I think he may have been the inspiration for those `Porn for Women' calendars that were so popular a few years ago.)

He meets Olivia at the airport when he tries to stop an unruly customer from verbally assaulting her at her store. He gets knocked out cold, then minutes later wakes to Olivia's beautiful face, sparks flying, and little blue birds flying around her head. (OK, not really. No blue birds. I made that part up. But yes to the sparks.

Cole is a womanizing air plane pilot who experiences honest to god love at first sight in an airport gift shop. After he is knocked out with a punch to the face while defending the gift shop clerk from a rude customer, Cole looks up from the floor to see Olivia's face and he knows he is in love. When Olivia touches the face of Captain Icredible, the hero pilot who saved the lives of a plane full of people by landing them safely in the middle of a blizzard, she knows she is in love.

Cole and Olivia begin an intense and loving long distance relationship which is tested time and time again. Women are constantly throwing themselves at Cole, who is viewed as a true American Hero. Olivia tries and tries to overcome her insecurities and accept that Cole truly loves her and only her. Given Olivia's history with men and Cole's tom cat ways prior to falling for Olivia they both struggle with accepting eachother as they are and progressing their long distance relationship.

Everyone Loves a Hero is a great "love at first sight" novel. I recently read Love at First Flight by Marie Force and was kind of put off by it. I decided to give this book a try and was happily surprised. Cole and Olivia are wonderful characters who experience all the self doubt and insecurities real people do. The plot and story flow was really good and I enjoyed the world building that Marie Force provides.

Where I was a bit disappointed was I felt all though Ms. Force has a gift for writing steamy love scenes, they were in too much abundance. There were pages and pages of Cole and Olivia getting it on and in my opinion it took a bit of the sweetness of their love story away. I also was a little let down with the ultimate conflict or climax in the story. It was kind of quick and predictable.

Overall I really did like Marie Force's new book and I look forward to more from her.

An excellent love story by Marie Force, that once you start reading, it will be impossible to put down. Filled with raw passion, laughter, tears from the heart, and a neverending love, this is one book you won't want to miss!.........Disgusted with fame, women, and false rumors, First Officer and pilot, Cole Langston, never believed in love at first sight before, that is, until he met her...She was beautiful, sexy, and she took his breath away, and while he proved to be her Knight in Shining Armour by defending her from a low-life jerk, he made up his mind, right then and there, to see her again but the question remained. Would she want to see him in the immediate future? Shocked that this gorgeous man defended her from a crazy situation, artist Olivia Robison was terrified by the pilot's injuries as he was suddenly taken away by the paramedics. Who was he? Worried sick over this pilot, Olivia even wrote him a note thanking him, but even more disappointed when she never heard from him again. Tired of the media and all the women throwing themselves at him, Cole only had one woman on his mind these days, and her name was Olivia. Determined to find her, Cole wasn't giving up until he did and he knew without a doubt, when he found her, it would be totally worth it. He also knew with Olivia, he would have to take things slow, and maybe in time, they could take their dates to the next level, that is, if she would even consider it, but even so, he didn't want to frighten her off, or he could lose her forever. Filled with her own demons and insecurities, Olivia never wanted a man like she wanted Cole, but she was also scared of what could happen. With the female population throwing themselves at Cole, how long would it take before he tired of her, only to seek female attention elsewhere?Read more ›
