An Early, But Disappointing Attempt At A Romance Novel

I have been an avid Evanovich fan for quite a while. I find her writing creative, and her characters offbeat and amusing. "Hero At Large" is one of Evanovich's early attempts at writing a romance novel. It is not unusual that when a writer becomes popular, the publisher "digs up" early works, and makes them available for fans. What a disappointment! The writing was juvenile, there was no character development, and even less of a plot. The publisher would have been better off leaving this particular work buried. The book was a waste of my time, and my money.

    Pleasant read

    The 'I'm in love with you' happened to quickly, not believable, took from the story. The beginning was somewhat slow, took awhile to develop storyline. Overall decent read.

    Light and Fluffy

    This book is predictable but fun. I did enjoyed it and really like Janet Evanovich's writing style. She is able to capture the moments and environment without becoming tiresome. If you need a break from the hectic day to day this is a light read for an afternoon or in a waiting room. It won't leave you riveted but it is enjoyable.

    Classic Evanovich

    It's not my fave of hers, but it is still good. You gotta love the crazy aunt. There are a few laugh out loud parts that make the book worth while.

    Okay fun read

    Not as funny or well defined as Janet Evanovich's later works but a cute story and quick read; especially good for if stuck in bed recovering/sick.

    This book helps pass a sleepless night.

    Janet Evanovich has given us another light, silly, cheerful book - easy read just for fun. Thank you.

    Just a bit of fluff....

    But can be read in one sitting and has its own charm. You read this type of thing when you need to not think about what you're reading. You have to appreciate it for what it is... a bit of fluff and escapism that will keep you entertained for a few hours.
