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.

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.

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.

Hero At Large is a pre-Plum novel by popular American author, Janet Evanovich, and was originally published under the nom-de-plume, Steffie Hall. When Chris Nelson’s car gives up the ghost on the Little River Turnpike, she’s grateful for the assistance that Ken Callaghan gives, and really, breaking his arm was completely accidental. But when her Aunt Edna invites Ken to rent their downstairs rooms, she is not happy. Ken is far too good looking, Chris is far too attracted to him, and after her ex, young Lucy’s dad, left her, she’s steering clear of relationships. Ken seems to be the perfect man: Lucy loves him, Aunt Edna wants Chris to marry him, he’s kind and thoughtful….. Then Chris discovers that Ken has not been entirely honest with her. Easily recognisable as the work of Stephanie Plum’s creator, this is a fun and fluffy romance.

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.

The female character could be me. It is a well written book and I appreciated the humor usually began by the male character. I would have liked to see more about the dog. I enjoyed this book alot. I would buy another from this author.

I liked this book. It's a typical Janet Evanovich, quirky and funny, with enough romance tossed in to make it interesting. I just wish I could find a real man that's this nice. Hey, this is fiction, and worth reading. She just knows how to write entertaining stories.

Loved this book. Endearing and funny to boot! Classic Evanovich.

I found no value in this audiobook -- There were some comical situations, but the reading was so awful I just couldn't enjoy them. The narrator should read to children, not adults. Her "voices" were not good and not believable. I never got use to her, so I didn't enjoy anything about the book.

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.

Not as funny as her Stephanie Plum series but fun to read. I have read every thing she has written...family and friends share the books and laugh till we cry.

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

Janet E, Stephanie Plum books are usually good, the numbered ones are the best!

This was another fun Janet read. I have read ALL of the books she has written/co-wrote. I really liked that the main character is a strong independent single mom, and she stumbles across her knight in a big truck.

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.

I love Evonivich's works. She if a great writer for light reading. I have tried to read all her books. This may not have been her best work, but I like her style.
