[Kame's Review]: "Everyone Loves a Hero"

Everyone Loves a Hero by Marie Force
Publisher: Sourcebooks Casablanca (February 1, 2011)
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Fame has its perks...

Reluctantly famous, First Officer Cole Langston finds being in the spotlight has its advantages-until he meets Olivia. Having women throw themselves at him everywhere he goes becomes a serious problem when he's trying to convince her she's the one...

And its price...

Olivia has trouble trusting a guy like Cole, and everywhere she turns she sees reasons to run. But he's the only man who's ever seemed to understand her as an artist and as a woman...

Cole is working overtime to prove to Olivia that he's serious, but her deep seated mistrust and his entourage of unwelcomed fans may be more than they can overcome...

Kame's Review:

I devoured this 300+ page book in one day.  I could not put it down.

Cole Langston is a former Navy pilot and current commercial pilot, who made a heroic landing of a commercial airplane when the pilot suffered a heart attack; landing the plane safely and saving his friend’ life.  He has done months on the “Hero’s Circuit” and life is getting back to normal. He has been known as a womanizer, with a different woman at each stop-over.

Olivia Robison is 27 years old, and works at the airport News Shop part-time and is a part-time college business student. On her breaks from work she wanders the airport and sketches, often making drawings of people and giving her work away.  Her dream is to be an artist but her Mother has convinced her that her sketches are nothing more than scribbles.

Cole has a short layover in Regan National Airport. He is waiting in line at the News Shop to buy Mentos for his next flight when he notices the man in front of him being rude toward the clerk - Olivia. Cole taps the man on the shoulder and in return the man turns around and punches Cole, he falls hitting his head on the display case and all goes black.  Cole wakes up and sees a pair of gorgeous eyes looking at him; she touches him and feels a jolt. Olivia feels a jolt too. Before being taken to the hospital he is able to find out her first name.  Olivia; thoughts of her fill his mind as Cole is recuperating at home in Chicago, grounded for two weeks because of a concussion. On his next flight into Regan he is determined to find Olivia and see if the jolt is still there.

The Love Story - and yes it is a Love Story - that follows is wonderful. I loved how Cole could just give into his love for Olivia with his whole heart and make some of her dreams come true. Not only does this book have a fantastic Love Story that makes your heart warm, it has great supporting characters – many who would make great heroes in their own books. (Sadly at this time they do not star in their own books)

I didn't want the book to end –I have reread it multiple times and I only discovered this book six months ago. I found this book at a Used Book Store, but will probably break down and buy it for my Nook so it will always be with me.  This book is in my top 5 favorite books of all time!  And Cole and Olivia are in my top 3 favorite fictional couples!

This book was not given to Kame for review, but rather one she bought.

Meet Kame:

Kame is part of a family of readers; one day she picked up the Nook she purchased for her husband and discovered her love of e-books. A few months later he purchased one for her so he could have his back! Kame’s Nook is never far, and she is hard pressed to pick a favorite book, genre or author. As long as there are characters that make her want to sit down and have a chat and a plot keeps the pages turning, she’ll read it.
