Review: Be My Hero by Linda Kage

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.  *New Adult Romance*  *Book 3 in Series*

Be My Hero by Linda Kage

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Loved it. Linda Kage is my favorite NA author and she didn’t disappoint in this latest book in the Forbidden Men series.

I liked the message in this book. Here are two people that had horrible childhoods. One was in foster care from birth and the other came from a rich family but was molested through her childhood and decided to keep that secret. When circumstances put a child in each of their lives the risks of them not being a good parent are high but these two decide to overcome their past and do everything in their power to be the best parents. The author also shows us the ugly side too. One of the children’s mothers is an addict and her addiction and self centeredness ruled her life and she only saw the child as a burden and treated him as such. This is all too real in the world today and the author held nothing back in showing us how the child suffers the most in a situation like that.

Pick and Eva were great characters to read and you were rooting for them to beat fate and get there happy ever after. Their journey from where they started to fighting to provide for their children was heartbreaking yet also fulfilling when they overcome the odds. Fans of the series will love that all the characters from the previous books are back in this one even with some overlapping of scenes we saw in the previous books – one in particular I laughed just as hard this time as I did the first time I read it. There are also 2 loose ends that are taken care of at the end of the book that had me clapping at how the author “closed” them.

I am happy to see there are more books coming in this series and look forward to reading them.
