What's not to love about a hero?

Michelle is heading to a cabin she rented to escape the current mess of her life. She's just caught her fiancé cheating with her best friend, and realizes that while she's mostly story about losing her best friend, she needs to get out of town fast and get herself together. Her car breaks down right before a snow storm, and just when she thinks she might be rescued, the rescuers turn out to be thieves and attackers. She is rescued a second time by a sexy fireman on his way home from his shift. Jason (sexy fireman) is able to get them both away from the attackers, but at the expense of their vehicles. Now they stuck in the Colorado wilderness in a strong winter storm. As they struggle to survive the night, they find they are extremely attracted to one another and both hope that there may be a future with the other if they can make it through the night and out of danger.

I thought both main characters were very likable. They are both sexy and the author does a good job of helping the reader feel the chemistry and sexual tension between the two. The story was exciting, but there weren't a lot of surprises in terms of the plot. That said, if you are in the mood for a classic romance with an enjoyable story, some good steam, and a little action- this is for you. I would have liked a little more length, but probably because I enjoyed these characters and would have enjoyed spending more time with them and seeing their story develop even further.

The narrator has a very nice voice, and does a good job of relaying Michelle and Jason's story.

Great Read

Mountain Hero was a great read by Cheryl Yeko. Michelle is trying to escape her life and find some rest and relaxation in the Rocky Mountains. Unfortunately on her way, her car breaks down. Her day gets worse when two men try to take advantage of her. She meets Jason when he tries to rescue her from the men. I loved Michelle and Jason's story and can't wait to read more by Cheryl Yeko.

Hold Me Closer Hottie Firefighter

YEKO gives the reader a solid scenario. Michelle is scorned and in need of saving. Jason, a firefighter, is a natural-born knight in shining armor. The bad guys are bad. They provide the initial burst of adrenaline that Michelle and Jason run with all the way to the end.

MOUNTAIN HERO was a nice nugget of a romance. Being short it walked the line of a perfectly paced build. The action and story are evenly paced and developed. Jason's calm and strength make him easy to fall for. But Michelle was a little uneven. Understandable, but her character bounced back and forth between "save me" and "I'll save myself". It made it a little hard to see what Jason saw in her. But who am I to deny some much-needed body heat in a mountain storm.

ALAN TAYLOR was kind of stoic with a touch of fire that made him a perfect voice for Jason. It matched his calm with something yummy just underneath the surface. But he did lack last touch of huskiness that would have brought home all the FEELS.

Gets it done in under 3 hours 🔥

Better written than the average romance quickie. The characters were introduced well and developed to the point I was comfortable with them. Michelle, in an emotional breakdown, recklessly drives in a winter storm up a mountain that has no cellular reception. She is stranded and begins to walk hoping to find a home around the bend. Two men stop and decide she’s an easy target but their assault is stopped by Jason, a sexy fireman coming home from his shift. In the scuffle, the bad men take Jason’s truck as well as their car leaving Jason and Michelle stranded in the storm. Jason is a hero, so...

Alan Taylor has a smooth, semi-deep voice. His narration technique is top-notch. The only thing that would have made this narration better was some huskiness added to the big and sexy, mountain firefighter’s voice!

Good short story

I got this ARC via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. This was a good quick romance. Some of the scenes were unbelievable such as trudging two miles in the snow with just a sweater and sneakers. But the rescue and subsequent scenes were well written. Loved the switching caves scene and the brother finding them. The narration was very well done and made the story come to life.

Good, quick read!

This was a nice short romance story. I always love reading about a heroic gentleman, however probably due to it being a short story, it lacked a bit of depth for me. Served its purpose great though! Was able to get to know the characters in a fairly short amount of time. A follow-up with Michelle's brother, Zach, would probably be great as well! The narration was very good and professional, but maybe just not quite enough edge for a hot and steamy romance. Very good all around though!

Decent listen but a bit unrealistic...

Mountain Hero by Cheryl Yeko is a quicker listen, clocking in at just under three hours. The story starts off promising with two baddies happening upon Michelle, as she tries to find shelter after her car dies in the middle of a blizzard. Jason, an off duty firefighter happens across the scene and saves Michelle, though the baddies make off with his truck. They find shelter and then BOOM! it seems like in a matter of seconds there's sexual tension, kisses, etc., though Michelle seems to go back and forth from wounded woman to all about Jason. I just found the story to be a bit unrealistic and way too rushed. That being said, it was pretty well written for these types of stories. I just like a little more depth and believability in this type of listen.

Alan Taylor did a good job narrating this short story. His narration was lacking emotion in places where I think it would have been beneficial to have read the story with a bit more depth, though this was still a decent listen and I wouldn't let this stop you from listening if the story sounds like one that you'd enjoy! Overall, I wasn't over the moon for this story, but I've listened to much worse and I can definitely see where some people would really enjoy this story.

Firefighter Saves Stranded Woman In Snowstorm

A car broken down in the middle of a snowstorm, the driver a woman who acts impulsively and finds herself attacked by two men.
A firefighter heading home comes upon the trio and the story really begins. Jason and Michelle have a connection that surprises them both...and what surprised me was how I got pulled into the story!
Suspense, survival, cheating fiancée and protective alpha men who are also sweet and tender and ethical.
A new author for me to enjoy!
The narrator did an excellent job..sometimes male readers overdo the female voices, this one didn’t.
Worth the time and $.

Hero to the rescue

Mountain Hero
: Cheryl Yeko

A story that reached my upper level of steamy. Most people that like contemporary romance will probably think lukewarm. There is a bit of excitement and adventure to go along with the romance.



The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed. Alan Taylor has that dreamy hero voice.

Sexy and Romantic...

An almost old time romance with a hero, a damsel in distress, a lot of chemistry and some action too. This novella is romantic and sweet, with a bit of spice. Easy to listen to, it makes for a wonderful little bite of escapism. If only heroes like this really existed!
