And its price...
Olivia has trouble trusting a guy like Cole, and everywhere she turns she see...more
Yikes. Wow, this was a disappointment. How to count the ways?!
I really wanted to love this one, but that didn't happen. In short, this read like a bad B-grade TV movie. You know the type. It always starts with an entertaining idea, then the producers butcher it into something so lackluster and choppy you wonder why you sat through it.
Everyone Loves a Hero is a story of two people who fall madly in love at first sight, and the trials and tribulations that happen when said couple move waaaaaaaa ...more
I’m not sure what exactly made this book’s dialogue sound odd, unnatural, or even awkward. But what I know for sure is that it really put me off. There were tons of filler that bored me to tears, and although I already skimmed through countless pages, nothing interesting came up. Too much stuff that didn’t contribute anything to the main plot whatsoever. To be honest, this book could have been cut down to half its length.
The story was romantic, I can’t argue with that. But somehow, it ...more
I am completely and utterly speechless! I just have no words to describe how much I adored this book! And it's gonna be too hard to write a review worthy of it, specially as it is not out yet and I can't give any spoilers...
This is a book about a girl meeting a pilot in the most funny way ever, poor guy was just waiting in line to get to the counter when he noticed the man right in front of him was behaving in a very rude manner towards the woman who was assisting him. When he tri ...more
Everyone Loves a Hero is my first read by author Marie Force, and I thoroughly enjoyed it! I was instantly drawn in, and felt a kind of kinship with the hero and heroine. It was the fun, easy to read, feel good story that I was hoping for.
First Officer Cole Langston is the epitome of a reluctant hero. Exactly what did he do to become so famous? (view spoiler)[He saved the lives of everyone on board a passenger plane when the Captain had a heart attack, in flight, leaving Cole to land the plane, ...more
(If you're lucky enough to understand that statement then good for you. If you aren't then, well, what a huge tragedy that is. I advise you to stop reading this review and jump onto Amazon)

Update: 2020 re-read. Still totally enjoyable, but really more of a 4 star read.
This wasn’t as bad as I feared after reading some reviews; however, it wasn’t as good as I’d anticipated, way back a year ago when I pre-ordered it from audible.com in 2013.
Nothing new under the sun here, and some of it was too much of the same-old-same-old. I liked the characters well enough; yet, while rooting for them, I thought their relationship was zooming forward too fast and at times uneven in pace.
Some parts w ...more
Since I am physically incapable of smacking our leading lady upside the head, I was tempted to toss the book across the room and scoff in disgust towards the end (you'll know why when you read it), but I was p ...more
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 ...more
So hard to rate this one.
At times I spent chapters with my heart in a flutter because it was extremely romantic, but at other times it was quite annoying.
I had pretty high expectations - mainly because when the front cover is hot I expect the pages to be equally matched...and this cover is hot!
But I found the rollercoaster ride of high passion, arguing, passion, fighting, passion, fighting again a bit much. I'm not saying that it isn't realistic because at the start of a relationship a ...more
Marie Force delivers with a romance that is both sweet and hot in Everyone Loves a Hero!
Cole ‘Jackpot’ Langston is a former Air Force pilot working as a First Officer for a commercial airline, based out of Chicago. He likes to live the high life with traveling, womanizing, and driving fast cars. When the pilot he is flying with has a heart attack and Cole is forced to take the passenger-filled plane down in a snowstorm, and then administers CPR, saving the pilot’s life he is named a h ...more
In a word: unrealistic
Unfortunately I didn't care for this romance. It was the most unrealistic romance I have ever read. The "hero" Cole was beyond perfect - there isn't a man on earth who could compare to him. He was a combination of Gandhi, Mother Teresa and skilled porn star. When he wasn't defending defenseless women, he was landing planes in blizzards while doing CPR on the heart attack victim captain (thus saving hundreds of lives) and in his spare time he flies terminally ...more
I thought I would enjoy this book more than I did, considering my husband and I had a long distance relationship for a few years. I thought I would connect with the characters and their situation more than I did.
I can't decide how I want to rate this book. I go back and forth between two and three stars. I guess I'll give it three stars because even though I didn't hate the book, I didn't love the book either.
There were many things that irritated me about this book.
For starters, C ...more
Cole and Olivia are a wonderful couple, and I loved getting to know them. They meet in an airport convenience store when a man being rude to Olivia punches Cole in the face and knocks him out for intervenening. Cole is already famous due to landing an airplane full of passengers in a blizzard when the captain has a heart attack. Cole then saved the captain's life. It doesn't hurt his celebrity that he's a hottie either. Everywhere ...more
It was beautiful, wonderful and amazing! I was smiling and blushing throughout, I swear my cheeks hurt now :P
Cole is just asdfghjkl!!! Loved Liv's character too!
The story, the plot and the writing is compelling and capturing!
Loved this book! :D
Cole never thought he would be a long term relationship type of guy, but that has all changed when he meets ...more
Release date for this book is February 1, 2011.
I don't want to slip and spoil the superb surprise you have awaiting you once the book is in your hands. Marie Force is a favorite of mine - have read all her books -- loved them each and every one -- and this was no exception. I've read it twice already and I'm thi ...more
This book was perfect with an incredibly sweet story. I loved Cole and Olivia, and like one of my friends who also read and loved this book. I too kept waiting for the other shoe to drop.
This is a light and very enjoyable read that I recommend to everyone who believes in love at first sight.
I will definitely be picking up more books by Ms ...more
Just what you need on a rainy night...a sexy guy in a great read!
Huge Thank you Marie!
I loved the dynamics of the characters, the story, and once again Ms. Force captured me right from the beginning with her amazing writing gift.
Okay, so at first this cover put me off. I have an aversion to romance covers that are all about abs and sculpted body parts. Funny, considering I'm a huge romance fan and I read it like it's going out of style. But so many of those types of covers are cheesy and I just can't take them seriously, so I pass on them right away. But when I stumbled upon this synopsis, I had a feeling I'd like the story. I'm a sucker for the whole pilot thing and I love air ...more

He groaned. "Liv. You've got to be kidding me. I picked up my whole life, drove halfway across the country, and you've changed your mind? It's only been fifteen days since you told me you still love me!"
"Shut up, will you? Will you please just shut up and kiss me again, you big idiot?" With both hands on his face, she molded her lips to his as her heart did a happy dance in her chest. Between kisses, she said, "I want to live with you and marry you and have a family with you and share your life--all the things you said you wanted from me before I ruined it. So no, I will not date you.”
"The best. In fact, I was planning to do this when we got back to the Fairmont, but suddenly I don't want to wait."
Reaching into the pocket of his black pinstripe suit coat, he retrieved a huge square-cut diamond ring and slid it onto her left hand. "What do you say we make this partnership official?"
Tears flooded her eyes. "Do you promise to love me forever?"
His blue eyes went dark with desire and love as he nodded. "Forever and ever."
He smiled and wrapped his little finger around hers. "Pinky swear"
She leaned in to kiss him. "Then you've got yourself a deal.”
