As always,Cheryl Yeko wrote a wonderful romantic suspense story. The main characters have past experiences to overcome before they can learn to love again. Add a stalker and let the excitement begin. Take a chance and read any of Ms. Yeko’s books. You’ll be glad you did.
4.0 out of 5 starsA fresh look at second-chance romance.
Reviewed in the United States on March 16, 2019
This is the third in Cheryl Yeko’s Hero Series, but a standalone. And it is an award winner. I was really interested to see what was so special about it, but I must say that I found it to be on a par with the first two novels. Perhaps all three should receive awards.
I found the romance and suspense of this novel compelling. Second-chance romance is not my favourite trope, but Ms. Yeko handled it differently to how I’ve read it before and consequently, I found it refreshing and appealing. On this point the novel is a stand out and perhaps that’s the reason for the award?
As with the first two books, I found the hero and heroine likeable, and the hero in particular, very heroic. I love that in all three books in the series, I loved the heroes. They were nice, protective, heroic guys without being bossy, dominating alphas. They were the kind of man a woman could love in real life.
I’ve now listened to all 3 stories in this series on Audible. Author Cheryl Yeko consistently wrote likeable main characters, and compelling romantic suspense. I’ll happily read any novel she writes in future.
Throughout the series, narrator Alan Taylor’s voice and characterisations were wonderful and easy to listen to, even when he was reading from the heroines’ points of view. I look forward to hearing him narrate again. Both he and Cheryl Yeko are happy discoveries for me.
What I loved about this story was how a change of circumstances could bring out another side of Stan that was more endearing to Shelly. The stalker going after Shelly was all to real, violating her boundaries, trying to do things that seemed nice but were really designed to make her feel unsafe, and having people ignore her story, and that's all before her life is in danger. The way Stan and Shelly grow together takes some unexpected turns, but what really came through to me was how they wanted to be with each other even more than they needed each other. This is a sweet story and an easy read. I received a copy of this book in exchange for a review through the Booksends ARC program.
5.0 out of 5 starsbut they don’t always pull it off like this author

A talent of this author, is to drag you into a story in the first few pages, and in Loving a Hero, you are tossed into the action in the first pages, and it hangs on until you hit the end. Ms. Yeko does not pansy foot around with a lot of descriptive paragraphs that slow the book down, instead she injects the information you need within the story as it all unfolds. I’ve read others that have a similar idea, but they don’t always pull it off like this author.
This is a shorter story, more than a novella, but easy to read in one sitting. And I didn’t want to put this one down once I started, so I made sure I had a couple free hours without disruption. The love story within this suspense is a heartwarming tale of second chances, even from two people with past mistakes – and it just makes them human, believable and likeable. Great story.

The only person she can think of calling is Stan. Even though their relationship ended badly, Shelly knows that she can trust Stan.

This author is new to me but, one I will definitely read again! 5 Star Heat Level 4
I received a free copy of this from BookSends ARC in exchange for an honest review.
I started reading this last night, intending to read a bit of it, just to get a bit ahead for today. Instead, I found myself finishing the last page somewhere around 3 am, and not regretting a moment of it. The story is a good one, the characters are ones that you care about, and it is a story line that definitely resonates in part with me.
I will be seeking out books in this series and from this author from this point on!
