3 - "Trust me your nipples are going to love it." Stars!

I am a big fan of Amy Andrews writing, her characters are likeable and her storylines although your standard romantic fare, are well written and easy to lose yourself in for a couple of hours.

The Hero is the second book in the Hot Aussie Heroes series, I haven’t read its predecessor and would say this can be read as a standalone. Edwina and Justin have history, having originally starred alongside each other in the hit Aussie television dram

Amy Andrews has brought her readers a romantic, sexy short read with The Hero. I devoured it and with a couple who sizzle together despite the intimacy being more tame, it packs an emotional punch.

"Their on-screen chemistry existed because their off-screen chemistry had bubbled and seethed and nipped at their heels for the entire two years they'd worked together."

Edwina Calloway and Justin Wilde were co-stars on the small-screen but they never crossed the line as she was married. Now divorced,

Have I told you how much I love Amy Andrews's writing? No? Well, let me make it clear. She writes some of the best and most relatable characters.

I could so easily identify with Edwina and Justin. They starred in a tv show together and their chemistry was off the charts, they each had a thing for the other, but they didn't do anything about it since Edwina was married at the time. KUDOS for them! I love that Amy made the characters faithful and loyal(even if Edwina's ex was a jerk). Justin just

Actual rating: 4.5 stars
Justin & Edwina's relationship was so full of passion and heat, I could only believe that it would be this way because they did have a past connection. Overall, I enjoyed the story and felt the pacing and setting worked very well to keep the story moving and interesting.

The Hero is the second book in the Hot Aussie series. Each book in this series gets better and better. I'm struggled to read the first book in the series, but by the end of the second book I was hooked. I loved Edwina and Justin's story. I love that they denied the attraction while she was still married. It made the story even sweeter.
This is my first book to read by Amy Andrews. I will definitely check out more of her writings.

This is the second book in the Hot Aussie Heroes series. If, like me, you remember how when staring in Neighbours, there was lots of speculation regarding the off screen romance of Kyle Minogue and Jason Donovan, you’ll relate well to the background to this story. In this case the stars involved are Edwina Calloway and Justin Wilde. At the time when they starred in an Aussie medical series on television together the chemistry between them was rampant and they shared some hot scenes as part of th ...more

The second book in the Hot Aussies Heroes Series is co-written by Amy Andrews, and I thoroughly enjoyed this passionate ride across the hot Australian desert.

Edwina Calloway and Justine Wilde were once co-stars in a popular TV show, before Justine moved to Hollywood pastures. They are now coming together after four years, to take part in celebrity car rally to raise funds for a worthy cause.

Justine had always been in love with Edwina, but kept his distance to respect her and her marriage. But no

The second in the Hot Aussie Heroes series, I actually did read second, but it also works well as a stand alone.
Edwina Calloway and Justin Wilde had amazing chemistry during their two years as co-stars on a popular Australian TV show. This was mainly due to their off-screen chemistry, something they didn't act on because Edwina was married. Hoping to distance himself, Justin left for Hollywood, where he became a big-screen success. On a break, he is convinced to come back and join a road rally

This is a quick and easy read with the authors trade mark sizzle. Not quite as intense as some of her full length efforts but the special thing about the sizzle is that it really works in the context of the story. The intense attraction between Edwina (Ed) and Justin (Jus) is as much a part of them as breathing and just as believable.

The story takes place over the five days of the rally that is to raise funds for the Flying Doctor Service which saved Edwina's life a year ago. The accident also p

I’m part way through the fourth of the Hot Aussie Heroes series from Tule Publishing, and I am pretty freaking happy with it, I give you the tip!

Book two for the series is Amy Andrews’ brilliant The Hero.

Holy crap, y’all! The sexual tension between Edwina and Justin is boiling-oil-over-the-castle-wall HOT!! They connect so well and you believe that it would have been so goddamn hard to avoid giving into it in the past. I loved that neither had given in, but they still acknowledged that there was

This is my first story by Amy Andrews and I loved it. It was such a fun delightful read with plenty of Sizzling Heat. Edwina Calloway and Justin Wilde are in for the ride of their life when they are put in the same car for a Celebrity Car Rally to benefit The Royal Flying Doctors Service. Edwina and Justin had been co-stars in a hit Aussie television medical drama called The Gift Of Life a few years ago but haven't seen each other for a coup

Edwina and Justin are two characters I really liked! They are both mature, thoughtful, loyal people whose characters have a lot of depth to them. They don't deny their attraction to each other or try to fight it, but instead for various reasons attempt to take their time. I really like characters who are strong enough not to waste time denying the obvious, don't have the angst, and there isn't conflict in their relationship.

The sexual tension is already smoldering though and it is almost imposs

"The Hero" by Amy Andrews is about it Edwina and Justin two celebrities in the acting profession. They meet while working together on the Gift of Life a TV show set in Australia. While doing the show they started to care for each other however at the time, Edwina was married to Dale their acting agent, so neither let the relationship develop any further at that time. Justin leaves the show, fires Dale as his agent, moved to Hollywood and becomes an even bigger star.

4.5 stars! I’m a big fan of Amy Andrews’ books, whether they’re medical or straight romance, I always enjoy what she writes, and this is no exception. A hot, fun read it doesn’t do anything to disguise the heat between the two main characters.

They want each other, badly, it’s just that Edwina would rather not play out their relationship in front of the press. Which is understandable, if a little mean, considering how much time they have to spend together. Unsurprisingly things get pretty heated

Edwina works for the film industry and is famous for a series on Channel 5 in Australia. She hasn't seen the Co star for two years and he is now invited to participate in a charity event where they have to work together again.

Justin is now a well known actor in the US but returns to take part in the charity event with Edwina. There has always been chemistry between them but they didn't act on it even though it was obvious when they were on screen. Edwina is no longer attached but she refuses to

Edwina Calloway and Justin Wilde had played Grace and Owen in A Gift of Life, a Channel 5 program, several years previously. They had a very noticeable chemistry but Edwina had been married to Dale at the time. Justin left the show and had been at the other side of the planet for 2 years. Now they are both at a charity car rally, which will take 5 days. They would go from Victorian Highland to Byron Bay. The charity was for the

What a fun story! Edwina and Justin had the chemistry but not the availability when they worked on a tv show together while Edwina was married. Now divorced, she is free to be with Jus though the eyes of the press are watching as they ride in a charity car rally together. I liked the premise of the story, and I was glad to see that there was no cheating involved and that neither had succumbed to temptation while Edwina was married (even though her husband was a jerk).

Edwina and Justin are thrown together on a car road rally after several years of no longer working together. Love the idea of the celebrity road rally with the media tagging alone.

I was hooked from the beginning but especially when It was made known that these two had been in a show together so it sort of a reunion for them. They were attracted to each

I liked this book. I wasn't sure exactly where this story was going but I sure went along for the ride with them. This had a slight tie in to the previous book. This could have been a stand alone. Edwina, or Ed, was a TV star in Australia. She had, had a near fatal stunt but makes it through. Justin is a top movie star in the States now. He loves her and left so he didn't ruin her marriage. Now they are together to raise money for the Airlift that saves lives from the Outback! A spoiler occurs t ...more

Quick, hot, fun and easy read, perfect for a weekend entertainment.
The couple, Edwina and Justin are charismatic, attractive, and likable. The chemistry between them is something fierce. And the author sets the fireworks off in a talented way. Four years of denying attraction sets off, and there's no going back from that. The story gets more depth from the sexy part, when the tabloids get a picture of Ed and Justin together, and jealous ex throw Edwina's intellectually impaired sister to the med
