Accidental Hero

(Marriage Mistake #1)

really liked it 4.00  ·  Rating details ·  4,264 ratings  ·  466 reviews
Accidentally engaged. Then he dared me to make it real.

It was one freaking kiss with a stranger.
I wasn't looking for a hero the day Brent Eden charged into my life.
He saw a damsel in distress facing humiliation.
We played pretend. Swore I was his. Baited sweet chaos.
Blew apart everything.

My dating disaster? Gone.
Our kiss? Electric. Divine. Toe-curling.
His mistake? Oh, boy.

I just cannot stand it anymore; she is a doormat virgin, he is an as*hole of epic proportions who has been with tons of women because he is an ex biker. And the whole book is out of focus: Is it a fake-boyfriend romance, a thriller/suspense book or a forbidden romance between student's parent & teacher? You never know; there is a bit of everything in it.

I feel as if all my life-energy has been sucked out of me so I really won't bother to write a review.

Here's an awesome review that

I was between 3 and 4 stars for this book. At the end I decided to give it 4 stars.

What I like about this book is:
- The characters. It starts with insta lust then the author takes it very seriously to develop character developement to finally reach that I love you phase. Izzy and Bren gone through a lot to deserve each other. Especially Bren's past.

- The sex scenes are very beautiful. It takes my breath away listening to the part when Izzy and Bren finally consumate their atrraction. The fact

All reviews and other fun stuff on the Romance Rehab blog:

I didn’t get what I was expecting with this one. Judging by the blurb, I thought I was getting a cute, lightly angsty fake boyfriend romance. I love fake boyfriend romance. Thought there might be some comedy involved. What I got instead was a fake boyfriend, biker, former military, single-dad, artist, alphahole sexfest-that-turns-to-instalove where all the problems that occur could’ve been avoided through

Nice sex scenes. Not really into the rest of it tho. Writing is just not that engaging. Fast-paced, but not really engaging. Plot too simple. Don't like the random flashbacks. Prob won't read this author again.

Kindle freebie. I check goodreads ratings before starting a book and y’all rated this book high. I don’t get it. It was awful. I should have quit awful. The “hero” was too caveman like with the people in his life. And the storyline about the gang was way too over the top.

This is one of those books that reminds me that while I rarely quit a book, there really are times that I should.

I received this book with the understanding that I could leave a voluntary and honest review.

In this book we meet Isabella "Izzy" Derby and Brent Eden. Izzy is the new art teacher and has found a truly gifted student in her class. Natalie is one of those talents that you see so rarely in kids that Izzy is determined to do everything she can to encourage her. If only she could stop thinking about her father. The problem is one night when she needs someone to help her with a man who won't just go

I love this story and gives it a well-deserved 5 star! The story well written, flows smoothly, is very exciting and an on the edge of your seat read. The plot is well developed, realistic and consistent. It is action-filled, with danger, intrigue and suspense around every corner. The characters are strong, likeable and have a remarkable, loving relationship. Their chemistry is off the charts hot, and their sex scenes are vivid and sizzling with sparks flying everywhere.

Awesome story. She is an art teacher. One of her students father comes to pick his daughter up and sees the teacher being harassed. He comes to her rescue. Then the fun begins. She wants to do one thing and her nosy family wants another for her. She fakes a fiancee with her students father. He is a very sexy and tough alpha. She is a feisty female. This is full of surprises and twists and turns. Keeps you on your toes and is so enjoyable. It is exciting, suspenseful, sweet, emotional, fun and so ...more

Nicole Snow always surprise me. Once again she has wrote a very hot, steamy, romance story that will make you want more.

Brent Eden was this sexy bad boy who was trying to do what was right. He wanted to be an example for his daughter. He had a dangerous past and unfortunate danger had came his way with no fault of his own.

I found Izzy very interesting. She was a woman with a big heart. Here she was trying to live her dream. She had always wanted to be an art teacher and now she was getting to

First of all the author had me at Johnny James. I will pretty much buy/read anything with Johnny on the cover, hell he can be on the cover of Good Housekeeping and I'll buy it, but I digress back to the book.

Accidental Hero - if you like a well written romance with a sexy AF head strong, protective alpha male who takes care of his daughter and the people he loves then I don't need to say much of anything else because this book is for you.

Not even sure where to start, this was a fantastic book. I love it from beginning to end. The characters were fantastic. The world Nicole created in this book was so easy to get lost in and a small trip down memory lane (if you have read some of her previous book series). I was definitely happy to see a glimpse of past characters from other series Nicole has written.

This book was packed full of turns at ever corner and just the right amount of steam. You definitely will not go wrong with this

Overall I liked this book. It had romance and action. Things in Brent's past come in to light. Which is why Brent spends a lot of time trying to protect Izzy. Of course they fall for each other. Thankfully in the end everything works out and they get a HEA.

Wow! Loved it! From the very beginning I was hooked. The characters are amazing and there are several different plot lines going. Constantly keeps you guessing at what’s really going on. The chemistry was off the charts and the passion heats of the pages. Can’t wait for more!

I received this book for Free to Give My True & Honest Review.

Accidental Hero is my first book that I have read by Nicole Snow & I really enjoyed it.
We have the smouldering looks from single dad ex MC member & military man Brent Eden & the lovely girl next door preschool/art teacher Isabella 'Izzy/Blue' Derby, who teachers art as an after school activity where 10 yrs old Natalie attends, who's a quiet child who doesn't socialise with her peers due to her advance in her academics
This is the first book I have read by this author and I really enjoyed it. Looking forward to checking out some of her other books!

DNF. I couldn't even finish chapter 2. Just no.

ACCIDENTAL HERO by Nicole Snow is an emotional yet humorous fake fiancé story. One that has a push/pull between the main characters. Izzy and Brent have an instant and intense attraction when they first meet that each struggles to deny. Brent is an overprotective , sexy, alpha hero who is kind of a jerk at times but what a sexy jerk he is. Izzy is a sweet, kind, sassy heroine and I liked how she didn’t let Brent mow over her and gave as good as she got. Their story has plenty of drama, tons of ...more

I haven't read a book by Nicole Snow in a long time. This sounded so good, I got it and started reading. Couldn't put it down. Brent and Isabella are perfect together although it takes them some time to get together. Add in the family stuff and then some danger and intrigue and you have a story that is really good. The characters were all written very well and the story was easy to follow. I love seeing how kick a## Isabella turned out to be. Nothing whimpy about her! The book is great and I ...more

I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

Natalie is ten years old. She's what you would call a prodigy, being that she is already in the 8th grade. Izzy is her art teacher and Brent is her father. Izzy is shy, beautiful and innocent, with a meddling family that's always in her business. Brent is a sexy, tattooed god with ties to the Grizzlies MC.
Brent drops his daughter off every Tuesday night at her art class and arrives early to pick her up. Yes, he notices the art teacher.

Lets start with the cover, shall we: it is so very lickable and the perfect representation of Brent! I loved being able to look at this man while reading thus story, they were a perfect match! Okay, moving on… this story is FULL of twists and turns, push and pull, passion and heat, action and intensity. Once you start you will not want to put this book down, so get comfy, lock the doors, grab some wine and get ready.

Actually, ACCIDENTAL HERO, written by Nicole Snow makes it beyond easy to picture Brent Eden, as the cover model....but, Brent is more than just pretty eye’s a win-win for all of us...

Love finds you when you least expect it, sometimes when it is the last thing you want in your life. The right person can fill the space in your heart that has been empty, making your life whole once again.

Izzy Derby has her dream job as a preschool teacher at the most prestigious school in Phoenix, where she is also teaching an advanced art class. She loves seeing the excitement on their faces as they create artwork with enthusiasm and love. Her favorite student, Natalie, is a brilliant 10 year
