Be My Hero (Forbidden Men, #3) by Linda Kage ~ Review

Source:  Received book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Once upon a time, there was this pampered rich girl who was kind of full of herself. She really only cared about appearances and hiding all her dark, ugly secrets under the guise of an opinionated snob. But then Eva Mercer got pregnant, shot by a psycho, and kicked out of the only home she knew. Now she’s broke, unemployed, and has to start anew with a newborn to raise. But how?

On the other side of town, sexy, tattooed orphan, Patrick Ryan, can’t get a break. He’s out on parole for defending the last damsel in distress while trying to help her support her child, but all he wants is to find his one true love. He knows this woman by scent, smile, and laugh, but he’s never actually met her. He doesn’t even know her name. He just knows she’s the key to fixing everything.

One kind of hero can save you from physical harm. Another can rescue you from a different kind of doom. To reach their dreams, Eva and Pick can save each other. But first, they must open their hearts and learn how to trust.


I love this series.  It's one of the best New Adult series' out there.  The characters are all real and clearly with issues.  Nothing is average or packaged.  Each story has it's own flavor but the cast of characters that fill the books are some of the best people I know.  Yes, I feel like I know them.

I've read these books out of order and I'm trying to catch-up on the ones I missed along the way.  I know Pick.  He's this charmer with the biggest heart know to the male race.  I have wondered about him as I've read others stories so I was excited to get his story.  

Eva is this strong, opinionated women that I, frankly, didn't like very much.  She's getting in the way of one of my very favorite males in this series, Mason.  So she had a long way to go to earn my affection.  While I never really loved her, I did come to understand her and feel for her.  And I saw what Pick sees in her.  

This one is emotional.  There's just no getting around the idea that a pregnancy with a mom that has nothing and nowhere to go is gonna pull on my heart strings.  But then you add the issues from Eva's past and a twist I didn't see coming and you get some serious tears.  And that doesn't even include another scare that sends Pick racing into the night.  I was wanting to crawl inside this book and so some major damage with my mama claws.  

One of the things that I love about this series and this author is that no book feels like you've read it before in another setting.  Just so genuine and real, these books will addict you. 

When you just need something real, pick up a book from this series.
