Publisher's Summary

It seems like good luck when gorgeous and mysterious Ken Callahan stops to help single mom Chris Nelson with her car. But then she breaks his arm...then his toe...and then his heart. Not easily discouraged, Ken moves into her basement...cooks her potholder in the spaghetti sauce...attempts to seduce her with cookies...and destroys her favorite pan by trying to make a roast in it. All may seem lost for Chris and Ken, until a meddlesome Aunt Edna, a ride on a Zamboni and a genuine love of family all conspire to turn their luck around.

Funny

contemporary-romance, comedy, humor
Read from January 01, 2013 to October 10, 2016

Fun comedic romance in the Evanovich manner. More of a novella, not her best, but funny anyway.
CJ Critt did quite well as narrator.

fun and light

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

yes, it's easy listening with Janet Evanovitchs quirky likable characters. You'll get lots of grins along the way.

What other book might you compare Hero at Large to and why?

Janet Evanovichs other stand alone Romance novels like Rocky Road To Romance, Back To The Bedroom, Manhunt, Naughty Neighbor, Smitten. All are light and funny romance novels with lots of laughs along the way.

Drivel

This the worst JE book I have ever read. Pure drivel. I could predict what was coming a chapter before it happened. I have read A LOT of her books, and this is not on par with them.

Superb modern romance

What made the experience of listening to Hero at Large the most enjoyable?

I could see the the samethings happening to myself as our heroine, so light and enjoyable to slightly more involved as story progressed.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Hero at Large?

The accidents that brought them together.

Have you listened to any of C. J. Critt’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not listened to other performance but she was good and did well with characters.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Accidents happen and this is a sweet accident.

Any additional comments?

My first Janet E book I will be looking for more, hoping to find more from her like this......soo cute.

The worst

I enjoy Janet Evanovich but this book is the most annoying ever; she is trying to take advantage of her name to publish boos that simple shouldn't even deserve to be publised. I don't usually write a review but seriously, this book, someone has to be warned. I love the bond agent series, but this book is really stupid, period. If she keeps using her name to write books like that, soon, she won't have any name recognitation left...

Embarrassing

As in embarrassing that I read this. Maybe I'm not feeling this genre, but this was awful. Unrealistic, predictable, trite. I like light reading/listening as much as anybody, but this goes beyond some level of "light" for me.

Hero at Large

I love all of Janet Evanovich books and this was no exception. The characters are so fun! It is a great book to listen to while I am driving long distances. The narrator was very good at keeping the characters alive.
