Hero by Lauren Rowe


A standalone contemporary romance in the MORGAN BROTHERS SERIES from USA Today Bestselling Author Lauren Rowe. The story of firefighter Colby Morgan that proves heroes come in many forms . . .The first time I laid eyes on Lydia Decker, I couldn’t speak. Or breathe. Or string two coherent thoughts together. And I don’t mean any of that figuratively. I’m not talking about a guy being floored by the sight of a gorgeous woman—although, of cou...

    HERO is a profound, intense and sincere contemporary romance. I believe Lauren has penned a masterpiece and delivered her best writing to date. Everything in HERO is fluent, poetic, earnest and heartfelt. The emotions in this book are overwhelming, overpowering and all consuming. It's the most emotive book Lauren has ever written. It's the sweetest romance Lauren has ever written. It's the most pure romance Lauren has ever written. It's the most ...

    5+ ‘The Story of Colby and Lydia’ Stars!Where does one even begin to describe this gem of a book?!I believe this is at the tippty top of the author’s works! Lauren has tapped into her inner writing goddess to bring us this captivating, sexy, emotional and poignant story. Colby Morgan is hands down the most swoon-y, most dreamy hero I’ve had the pleasure of reading.Colby’s a firefighter. When he gets severely injured on the job, his need...

    Knight in Shining ArmorHave you ever wanted to know someone that you would consider the love of your life or your soulmate? That is the very essence of Colby Morgan. Colby is a HERO in every sense of the word. He is a firefighter who on a daily basis puts his life on the line to save others. When he is laid up in the hospital after a near death experience, the first person he sees when he opens his eyes is Lydia Decker. A beautiful Angel. She is ...

    Ok, ok, ok. I’m not even sure where to begin with this beauty because damn, stick a fork in me, I’m done.Ever since Lauren announced Colby would be getting his own book I was so extremely excited and to be completely honest a little nervous. Having loved Peenie and Captain I was nervous that Hero would love yo to the expectation I had for it but, let me just tell you this, my expectations were blown to smithereens. Cheese Head’s (Colby) boo...

    I am a fan of Lauren Rowe and her books. This isn’t a secret. The books that contain the Morgan family, though, hold a special place in my heart. And this book seals that space. Cemented over completely.Hero, Colby and Lydia’s story, grabbed me by the throat, and never really let go until the end. Lauren’s humour makes your brain laugh. Her angst makes your heart weep. Her love makes your soul fly.This book boils down to love. With the Morg...

    I have no words. Lauren Rowe did it again – she left my sitting here looking for words to describe what I’m feeling right after she rocked my world. Because Hero is the best Rowe-book to date! Period. And Colby Morgan is officially my favorite Morgan. Sorry, Ryan.This story! I stand in awe, lady! I don’t think I’ve ever read a book so consuming. I laughed, I cried, I swooned and wanted to hug the hell out of these amazing people.Lauren Ro...
  • Big Joe
    I love Lauren Rowe books almost as much as I have come to love the person. Havent met her yet, but I will. This is hands down the best book by her EVER!Though Colby and the fire and his injuries are alluded to in The Club series, this can be read as a standalone. The first few chapters detailing the fire and Colby's heroism is so life like and real I was literally and figuratively sweating and holding my breath!!!!When he awakes in the hospital h...

    Love is an infinity cakeColby Morgan. Eldest of the Morgan Mafia, a tight tribe of siblings. The protector. The lighthouse. The observer. The hero. Lauren Rowe’s fans have waited a long time for his story, and it was absolutely worth the wait. Catching glimpses of his stoicism and sweetness in the other Morgan brother’s books have left me yearning for Colby’s book. It doesn’t disappoint. It was everything I’d hoped it would be and so mu...

    Reviewed on behalf of The Book Boyfriend Addict. A complimentary copy was provided in exchange for an honest review. “I wouldn’t want to be on this journey with anyone but you, Lydia. I don’t want anyone else.” “Thank you,” she says. She leans forward like she’s going to kiss me, like I’m the great love of her life, and whispers, “I’m going to bring you back to life, Colby Morgan.” Sooooo, this book was pretty much perfect t...

    Well what can I say !!!! Lauren SLAYED it !! From the moment I opened the book to the moment I closed it my heart went bumpity bump. Colby Morgan is the most genuine, laidback and thoughtful guy, all wrapped up in gorgeousness ! He quietly contemplates, sees his surroundings as a whole and will put everybody before himself ! He makes the nearest to damn perfect man ! And he is beautiful ! Lydia Decker has met her match, in difficult circumstances...
  • A little birdie told me... Gardner
    4.5 stars. I’ve said it before... Rowe is a genius. She can write a book that rips my heart out and pulverizes it (to the point I had to put my Kindle in my freezer, Tribbiani style). Slowly but surely, she repairs my heart, puts it back in my chest, and fills it to the point of bursting. Only true geniuses can create such emotional responses from words on a page. She has created this Morgan clan, a family that is so perfect and endearing, ever...
  • Michelle
    It’s no secret that I’m a massive Lauren Rowe fan and love all her books, especially ones that involve the Morgan family. I absolutely adore the Morgan family and genuinely wish I could be part of that family...even just to see what nickname they would give me! When I read Captain I thought no book could top it...until Hero. I’ve been blown away. 100% Lauren’s best book to date!! Colby’s story was brilliant - sweet, sexy, funny and did ...

    I so want to be part of the Morgan family!Kat, Peeny, Captain Morgan now Colby, I love this family and have enjoyed each one of their story's but Hero, OMG...I cried, swooned, laughed, awed, Hero was everything I love in a book and more. I started this book with tears in my eyes reading Lydia's tragic loss then when Colby nearly died rescuing a baby I was in awe of his bravery. Both incidences brought together two amazing characters that are so r...
  • ashley abken
    I was given an ARC copy of this book to read. Now I love and am borderline obsessed with any and all things Lauren Rowe. I swear every new book I have read of hers is my favorite but this book hands down is my favorite. I LOVED this book. Hero had my emotions all over the place. I was heart broken, hopeful, laughing hysterically, teary eyed and excited all within pages of each other. Colby and Lydia's story is full of anguish and triumph. It is s...
  • Heather andrews
    With Lydia's kids no secrets are sacred and Colby just eats up the information, "I literally stagger in place in the hallway. J***s C****t, Izzy! “Really?” Colby says. “Interesting. Can you remember anything else she said about me?” Nothing is off the table with Colby, the man likes to share, “I sure did! Plus I wacked off thinking about you twice!” Colby is all for figuring out solutions, “Help me push that dresser in front of the ...

Lydia and Colby are the best and absolutely meant to be together. i really loved their story and everything they went through to get there is book is a must read in my opinion!!
  • Laura
    As always Lauren has smashed it again. Jheeeezzzz can she right a good guy. From start to finish this story was captivating, beautiful and full of love. It’s also really funny which I wasn’t expecting considering the premise of the story. Colby will steal your heart for sure along with the rest of the Morgan clan. I can’t wait to read it all over again.
  • Liz
    It has taken me a few days to get my words and emotions together for this review. First off Lauren has gone above and beyond with this book and here I thought Misadventures Of A College Girl was her best, this book right here has what it takes to make it in my opinion the best of her writing. Why? Well if you can sit down and actually feel all the emotions each and every character is going though while reading and you can see each every scenario ...

    5 Heroic Stars!!! Lauren Rowe is the Ultimate Puppet Master when it comes to her books. She pulls every single emotion you can imagine to the very surface. I LOVED this book!!! The writing was flawless, and the pages flowed effortlessly and once I started reading Hero, I was not able to put it down until the very last page.I want to be an honorary Morgan sibling, I swear it would be the most awesome experience!!Hero begins with Lydia Decker at ho...

    So. yeah, let's review Hero by Lauren Rowe, yep *shakes hands above keyboard*; let's do this! So, I was provided an ARC by the author for an honest review but caveats were put on the review to which I'm not totally thrilled with, so this will be as honest a review I can give within the guidelines I was given. First, let me say that I have been a proponent of Lauren's since I first discovered her Club series and used to shout from the rooftops how...
  • K.M
    I WANNA BE A MORGAN!! I read this book so slowly because I didn’t want it too end. Seriously I DID NOT want it too end. This story just reached inside my chest and grabbed my heart and twisted. I know what ever words I spew are not going to do this book justice at all, so please be kind. LOLI’m so in love with these two. Colby and Lydia have an epic love story and I had those amazing butterfly feelings when I read these two. This is Lauren’...
  • Books all things Books
    There aren’t enough words to describe my love for this book! Colby Morgan is a mans MAN! He is ALL MAN! He is the epitome of what you want as your MAN! When Colby loves he loves with his WHOLE BEING! Not just his heart, but his SOUL! This book was everything and nothing like what I expected because it was MORE!!! Lydia Decker is the kind of woman that feels everything and puts her entire being into what she feels and does! She questions and dou...

    Have you ever picked up a book and just knew without a doubt...it would become you're favorite book of the year? That others might try and reach that top spot but just fall a tab bit short? well...yesterday morning that happened to me. The moment I picked up Hero...my world completely stopped. I was instantly hooked...seriously from the very first chapter..i just couldn't bring myself to put the book down. By chapter 18 i had already cried, laugh...
  • Sarah Kirk
    The words to describe this book in an accurate, complete, and fulfilling way are so very hard to find. This book is truly special. The phrase "all the feels" seems to be destined to describe this book. The story of Colby and Lydia's love is one that will break your heart from Lydia's past and Colby's pain, then give you hope when they meet, and eventually piece your heart back together and make it swell with joy as they fall for each other. Colby...
