I wasn't crazy about "Finding Your Hero". I wanted to like it, and while the subject matter is a little bit over done (man on the run from abusive ex, saved by another man) the story still sounded like it had potential. I usually love an incredibly wealthy hero, and Roman was exactly that. He was also ruthless, and he was willing to run over anyone that got in his way. This is why I thought it was a bit strange that, when he happened upon a very beaten up Chris, he changed into a caring man who was willing to take him to the hospital, pay his bills, and bring him to his place to recover. Love at first site? Maybe. I'm not sure. I felt that the relationship between the two was rushed, and I wasn't very vested in the characters. There are a few exciting moments as the men who Chris has been trying to run from find him and try to take him back, and you just know it would be certain death from him. Roman comes riding in like a knight in shining armor, but I didn't like the way he did it. I'm trying very hard not to give anything away here, but he did what he did, and that was somewhat heroic, but after it was done, he lied to Chris about it. Any relationship based on a lie THAT BIG is (only my opinion here) doomed to fail.
I'm also going to mention that there were absolutely no sex scenes in this book. It's obvious that Roman and Chris are a couple. They call each other Baby, and they're very gentle with each other, and that's pretty romantic. However, even though I'm not a complete sex hound, I like to have my "erotic romance" have something erotic in it. The excuse was that Chris was recovering from his surger and his horrible experiences at the hands of his abusers, and I totally get that. It just felt like there was something missing from "Finding Your Hero", and I think that at least one sex scene would have made the book seem more complete.
This book was not awful, by any means. I just thought it felt disjointed, and the characters didn't feel very real to me. If you go into "Finding Your Hero" aware that it isn't going to be a traditional manlove story, you might enjoy it. It just really wasn't my cup of tea.

Chris is running from his obsessed abusive boyfriend. He has been raped, hit, abused, and used. He has a hard time with trusting anyone now. So when Roman helps him and asks for nothing in return he cannot believe that Roman doesn’t have a catch to his kindness.
We soon learn both men can change. Both for the better. They are kind, sweet, and meant for each other. There are some scenes referred to in this book that might not be for all readers. But I found it added to the intensity of the story.
When you want a romance with a little bit of edge, and will make you believe in true love again this is the one to pick up.
Four twinkling Stars
Fleeing from the "boyfriend" who kept him for years, Chris finds himself on Roman's private beach. Something calls to Roman to help the young man with broken fingers and a bleeding head wound, what? he doesn't know, but Chris soon becaomes a very important part of Roman's life. When Chris' past turns up tp take him back, Roman pulls out all the tops to prevent that from happening.
This was a good book, a nice-ish sort of book, it just wasn't an awesome books.
I've filed it on the over 18 shelf, some of the abuse, no, ALL of the abuse Chris suffered warrants it. Also, Roman has some shady ideas about business and dealing with Chris' past.
There is, surprisingly, no sex between Chris and Roman, although that might be that Chris is still suffering from the abuse, alot of which was sexual and we get that her, I cried. Chris never finds out what Roman did, and it makes me wonder, do these guys have another book?? A second one, thet takes us more into their world?? Can't see one though.
Its only short, about an hour's reading time, not really a hangover cure though, because of the subject matter. and it's told from both Chris and Roman's POV, so thats good.
Like I said, a good book, just ot an awesome one.
**same worded review appears on Goodreads, Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk**
I thought this was a sweet romance. It was an over done plot line and predictable. But, it was sweet. I loved seeing Roman change. My problem was Chris's character was under-developed. There wasn't much to like about them. The story moved quickly and at times, I felt lost as to how much time had passed. I think if this story was beefed up a little bit with some better details and stronger character development, it could be a 5 star read. As it is, it's just a sweet romance. I did enjoy that it was a sweet MM romance instead of an overly erotic one.
