Be My Hero (Forbidden Men #3) by Linda Kage
Be My Hero by Linda Kage
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
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 Three in Series, but can also be read as a standalone*
*Explicit language and sexual content*
Pick Ryan has always been in the system. His life was no picnic. Moving from place to place, one foster family to another, he never had anything solid. Not until that one fated night where he saw something so clear and so vivid that it changed his life forever. He wants what he's seen and will do whatever it takes to get him there. So for the next 10 years he straightens his act and becomes a man of worth. But his dream is starting to fade into the background. Things are not going to plan and names and commitment are thrown around when they were saved for someone else.
Eva isn't the girl you think she is. Yes she's spoiled rotten and you may think she's got it all but until you step inside that locked vault of her mind and soul you will never understand.
Slowly she finds that life isn't about finding the numb place she often goes to when she gives her body away to yet another guy but now she has purpose. A child grows inside her. And yes the father isn't who she would have ever picked in a million years but this child is hers and her to love and protect.
Pick and Eva are all wrong for each other. Pick is tatted and pierced and Eva is a flawless beauty. So why is there such a strong pull from both?
From the moment their eyes meet they cant seemed to look away. Pick's soul knows this girl and cant comprehend what he is seeing. This is the girl he's been dreaming about for over 10 years and to his surprise she's pregnant and its not his child she is bearing.
He died a bit more that day but what he doesn't understand is that all was right in the world.
I have to say, at first I wasn't happy about all the other characters from the previous book having such big roles in this book. It felt like they were taking away from Pick and Eva but they were a big part of the healing that needed to happen to this amazing couple.
I loved this story. These two have had very tragic lives but through it all they find happiness in each other. I love Pick and grew to really love Eva. She just wanted someone to love her and the universe paid her back for all the wrong that was thrown at her with Pick.
This one has plenty of angst but what I really enjoyed was the sweet love story that brought two halves into a whole.
