Overview

Hero is a standalone novel told in dual points of view. Contains dark themes not suitable for all audiences.

*Calvin Parish*
They call me Hero.
I defend.
I protect.
I ask for nothing in return, and that makes me good.
Doesn’t it?

That which makes me the ultimate predator also feeds dark impulses I’ve learned to control—until I bring her too close. For years I’ve watched her from afar, but what started out as duty has become obsession.

*Cataline Ford*
I work hard.
I play by the rules.
I’m content.
My scars are quiet and invisible, and that keeps me hidden.
Doesn’t it?

One fateful walk home, I’m taken by someone I didn’t know I should fear. Captive and afraid, nobody will tell me why I’m confined to this hauntingly beautiful mansion. I’m given everything; I have nothing. He takes what he needs from me, and for that I hate him. But I might have loved him once.

And just because you’re reading this doesn’t mean I survive him.

I was a bit unsure about this book when I read the first couple of chapters.  It did really grab me and then she wakes up after being kidnapped and I could not put my kindle down.  It was so super dark.  Yes there was the darkness that comes when an author straddles the line between consensual and no consensual acts but there was also the darkness of guilt.  The darkness of being burdened by responsibilities you feel are yours and are not actually possible.  The darkness not knowing who you are.  The darkness of being completely alone even when in a room full of people.  This book is definitely not for everyone because it really does cross lines of consent in multiple place.  It also asks the questions of who really is and is not a "good guy".  That being said, if you like your heroes dark and your romances not at all romantic, this is probably just the book for you.

I was hesitant about this book but after reading so many great reviews about it, I purchased it and Hero sucked me in from the first few chapters. Filthy hot hero and heroine and gritty, dark and sexy storyline. Definitely a MUST read! Looking forward to more from Leighton Del Mia!

It had some really good moments, but it was far too brutal for my tastes, and the heronie frustrated the absolute hell out of me. Meanwhile the author's taste in music makes her like my musical twin.

A dark and twisted take on Beauty and the Beast. From the first page to the last, I was captivated by the story and characters. The author wrote such depth of emotions that I could feel the struggles of Hero and Cat. A well-written book that shows the reader vs. tell.
