Irresistible Heroes – Heroes of Your Heart by Various Authors – Review by Angela Hayes

IRRESISTIBLE HEROESIRRESISTIBLE HEROES by Tamara Ferguson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

Irresistible Heroes is a superb Anthology of stories from some very talented, best-selling and award-winning authors. The stories are all so great- all quite individual to the author, but all are based on the same theme- which is “Irresistible Heroes”. We get to meet all kinds of heroes, and heroines- from cops, to fire fighters, Military personnel, Veterans, and Doctors- there’s a hero here that is bound to capture your attention, and a piece of your heart in the process.
This Anthology is made up of eight wonderful stories that are all really well written, interesting, engaging, and entirely enjoyable. The stories are:

 

Two Heart Unlikely Heroes By: Tamara Ferguson

This was definitely one of my favourites of the collection. I love Ms. Ferguson’s books and have read pretty much everything she has written. This is the ninth book in the Two Hearts Wounded Warrior Romance Series- but you don’t need to have read the rest of the series to enjoy this story- as it reads wonderfully well as a standalone. But having said that, you, like me will probably develop a bit of an addiction to her stories and get the desire to explore the rest of her books. Something I have discovered now I have read a lot of her books is the way Ms. Ferguson has cleverly built a bigger picture, a cast of believable and endearing characters, and a supportive community in which to base her stories (for the most part). Everything comes to life, and through each book you begin to see more interconnected details, characters, and situations.
This book is one of my favourites of her, bringing suspense, terrorists, danger and intrigue to Crystal Rock- as we follow Captain Samantha Caldwell and AFOSI Agent Captain Ben Nash on a bit of an adventure as the danger mounts and they try to piece everything together.
As always, Ms. Ferguson doesn’t disappoint!

 

Simply Love By: Natalie Ann

This is the third book in the Love Collection series by Natalie Ann. It is such a sweet, and emotive story that had me rooting for the characters right from the get go. Gemma and Blake have both endured quite a lot of emotional pain in their lives. So, will they finally find the new beginning and second chance they have both searching for? This book is really worth the read to find out!

 

She’s Having a Baby By: Suzanne Jenkins

Oh Ms. Jenkins you’ve done it again! Another great read- but I highly recommend having a box of tissues on hand, as this story will give your emotions a bit of a battering. This is the first book in Ms. Jenkins new series, The Saints of San Diego.
With friendship, family, duty, action, drama, love, loss, heartache, pain, joy, and new beginnings- this story may be short, but it packs quite a punch. We meet our main characters, but also a whole cast of wonderful secondary characters- a family of heroes who completely won me over. What a memorable way to start off a new series- and if this is any example, the rest of the series is set to be just as great! I can’t wait!

 

Johnny’s Girl By: Cynthia Cooke

This is the second book in the Deadly Secrets series by Cynthia Cooke. Full of intrigue, mystery, danger, suspense, action, drama, and more- this romantic suspense had me hooked right from the get-go.
This is my first read by Ms. Cooke and I really didn’t know what to expect going in, but now I am happy to say that I will definitely be exploring more of Ms. Cooke’s work in the future. This is one of the main reasons I love reading anthologies, because it’s a chance to discover new authors to add to your TBR, and therefore more books to explore!!! WIN-WIN!!
Well done!

 

Fire Me Up By: Alicia Street

We meet a hunky firefighter looking for a fresh start and a shy schoolteacher who shakes things up and brings a bit of a spark to his life. This was such a quick and easy read- a sweet story with a witty, captivating (second chance) romance…. which also has an emotional element to it too. Well worth the read!

 

Seal of Refuge By: Alyssa Bailey

Who doesn’t love a sexy Navy SEAL- so add a unlucky in love school teacher, a few surprises, a little bit of drama, and a wonderful romance- and this story really takes off. I didn’t expect to like this story as much as I did- they characters really won me over. A great story to start off Ms. Bailey’s Guardian’s of Refuge series. I for one, can’t wait for the next instalment!

 

Never Gone By: Stephanie Queen

This is the first book in the Zero to Hero Series by Stephanie Queen. Another 5 Star read in this exciting collection. I love Ms. Queen’s books and was really excited to see it was the start to a new series. Zero Go Team is made up of so many heroes, I can’t wait to follow all the character’s stories as they release.
As expected from Ms. Queen, this story is really well written, sexy, spicy, intriguing, and original. The characters pulled me into the story, and I became completely invested in them and their story- devouring every word! I loved meeting Joe and Mae- and I can’t wait for more.

 

Handle With Care By: Patrice Wilton

Handle With Care is the second book in the Wounded Warrior Series by Patrice Wilson. Shane Dawson was a medic serving in Iraq when he is captured and tortured. He may be home from the war, but he left a piece of himself behind, trading it for a whole lot of pain and some difficult personal demons.
Lauren Reynolds is a skilled ER doctor- a single mother with a young son who has ADHD. Things haven’t been easy since her husband died, but she and her son Josh make a pretty good team.
Meeting Shane sets them both on a path they never expected. Taking a chance on love doesn’t come easy, or without some risk. What happens you ask? Well you really should read all the emotional details for yourself…. it’s definitely worth your time.
A story of trauma, pain, addiction, struggles, emotion, friendship, trust, romance, spirit, redemption, and love.

 

As you can see, we meet a variety of charming heroes who will all inspire, captivate, and entertain you. They will entice you into the book and keep you there, avidly turning the pages to follow each as their story unfolds.
So, if you are looking for a book that is full of heroes, romance, and stories that you can connect with- then this is definitely the anthology for you…… And hello, eight books for the price of one…. WINNING!!!!

Thank you to all the contributing authors!

IRRESISTIBLE HEROESIRRESISTIBLE HEROES
By: Tamara Ferguson
My Rating: 5 of 5 stars

Irresistible Heroes Anthology was packed full of fun, emotional, feels invoking read, that kept me moving from one engaging story to the next.

I love anthologies, there is always a story for everyone, and you get to discover new authors. This one was no different, and I now have a few new authors to stalk… I mean follow.. yeah follow..

Anyways, as I was saying, this anthology was all that and more. I flew through this, and I was a little sad when it ended. The stories in these wonder don’t follow one another, so you don’t need to read them in order, you can flip back and forth, do whatever you want.

I will say that I did very much enjoy Fire Me Up by Alicia Street, it was that type of romance, it was sweet witty and just… so many feels. I also liked Two Hearts Unlikely Heroes by Tamara Ferguson, which I will say is an author I know and have read books by. It was part of the reason I chose this anthology. Again, this story was pulling, sparked the feels and the MC’s were just a joy to read about. I have so many feels right now, that my brain is all mushy.

So I’m going to stop rambling and just leave you with my super high recommendation and my golden stamp of approval.

Happy Reading

There always such a great balance of romance, suspense and a little mystery! She is a fantastic author! I loved Samantha and Ben! I just adored them both together and separately.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I loved this anthology. Each story was individually unique but at the same time they flowed seemlessly together in a wonderful collection of stories. I found each author’s unique voice blended well with the others. If you like romance and the military, you will love this set.

Irresistible Heroes
By: Tamara Ferguson (Author), Natalie Ann (Author), Suzanne Jenkins (Author), Cynthia Cooke (Author), Alicia Street (Author), Alyssa Bailey (Author), Stephanie Queen (Author), Patrice Wilton (Author)

I loved reading the stories in the anthology Irresistible Heroes. They include some suspense and plenty of romance. I found myself pulled into each one and getting lost in the storylines and characters. I love anthologies as they are a chance for me to read stories from new authors. These stories included a couple of authors that I have read books by before. One of the stories that I enjoyed is Two Hearts Unlikely Heroes by Tamara Ferguson is an amazing story to read. I loved reading about the characters of Captain Samantha Coldwell and Captain Ben Nash. They both have served their country with honor. When it is found out that terrorists have the facility and Samantha in their sites, Ben takes on the role of her protector. There is an attraction between Ben and Samantha. There are sparks between them. Will those who threaten Samantha be caught? What does the future hold for Ben and Samantha? Read this story to find out. This story at times had me wondering what was going to happen next. It also has romantic scenes and dialogue. Another story I enjoyed was Johnny’s Girl by Cynthia Cooke. This story has the right amount of mystery and suspense that will keep you guessing until the end. There is action as well as romance. Don’t miss out on a group of stories that will have you reading far into the night. Highly recommended.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Irresistible Heroes Anthology is a collection of fantastic stories but a group of brilliant authors. What drew me to this series initially was the fact that Tamara Ferguson had a story in this collection. She is an author I have become very familiar with over the past couple of years and I always enjoy her work.
However what kept me interested was how well written each and every story was. They were all different from each other so there was no risk of becoming bored. And yet they all had the same great appeal in their characters.
This is definitely an anthology you should try and a great way to introduce yourself to some new authors.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is one of those fabulous anthologies that introduced me to some new authors and brought me new stories from favored authors. Each story is part of a series and can easily be read as stand-alones.

These are about different types of heroes. Some are obvious, others prefer to hang back.

A few of my favorites:

TWO UNLIKELY HEROES by Tamara Ferguson is a story about the small town of Crystal Rock which is home to a top rehab facility. Suspense, danger, romance and more. I always enjoy stories that come from Crystal Cove!!

SHE’S HAVING A BABY by Suzanne Jenkins is the first book I’ve read by this author and is also the first book of a new series. This book ~SIGH~ is short and to the point and filled with so many emotions that I won’t say anymore because I would give it all away.

This anthology has something for everyone. I absolutely recommend it.

There is something for everyone in this book. I found my favorites and a couple of new authors as well. Two of my favorite stories: Two Hearts Unlikely Heroes which is about Captain Samantha Caldwell. While she was in Iraq, she killed a terrorist leader but now that she is back home, she may be a target. She’s Having a Baby: This is about unexpected changes that happen during fire season. All have great characters that are strong and pull you into their stories. A must read anthology.
