I Need a Hero | Emma Bennet

“In fact, she was rapidly coming to suspect her fictitious image was just that, and it didn’t quite fit with the real [him] at all.” 

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Number of Pages: 163
Perspective: Third 
Location: Great Britain 

I Need A Hero is about Bronte, a writer of popular romance novels, so she has a very strict idea of who her real life love interest should be. When she finally meets her storybook hero, she realizes that maybe her idea of romance is different than what she writes about in her books. For a complete summary, you can go here.

How was this book only 163 pages? I read this book on my Kindle—which I hate to do, but sometimes I have no choice if that is the only way that the publisher is offering the book—so I had no idea how many pages this book was until I just looked it up. That was the longest 163 pages I have ever read. I should have flown through this book, but that was not the case. 

This book wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t great either. I was intrigued by the concept, but it still ended up being pretty predictable. The ending was so blatantly obvious that I wanted to shake Bronte because she was obnoxiously oblivious to what was going on around her. 

This book also felt very staccato. Just a bunch of sentences strung together. Everything was described as this happened then this happened then this happened. I didn’t feel like the world building and story telling was as strong as it should have been.

With that said, it was a cute story and I still think its worth a read for people who enjoy love stories. If you are interested in buying the book, you can buy it hereAfter you have read it, leave a comment and let me know what you think! 

“Maybe your hero isn’t right for your heroine.”

3/5 Stars
