5.0 out of 5 stars Was looking to see if next M. Jameson book was out... 14 Jan 2006
By Kelly - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I was scanning Amazon hoping Miss Jameson's next book might be out and was reading some of the newer reviews. I thought "My Hero" was such a good read particularly because it was not the usual, formula romance and I'm looking forward to another Jameson novel.

"Dessert's" review caught my eye. The 4 stars made sense but much of the review did not jive with what I had enjoyed. When I saw Dessert made much ado about the hero's name - yet repeatedly couldn't get his name right - it made me wonder if Dessert had really read "My Hero" at all or had just wanted to promote another author's book here. Hhmmmmm.

Can't wait for Ms. Jameson's next book - hope it's coming out soon!

4.0 out of 5 stars Quick and Amusing. 18 April 2006
By MaryGrace Meloche - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Okay, I was lucky! Recently, I read an advanced reading copy of Marianna Jameson's BIG TROUBLE and I enjoyed it so much, I just had to read this author's debut novel, MY HERO. When I turned its final page, I immediately looked for my "BANR" list (Buy Author's Next Release). Certainly, Jameson's first two books are a reader's delight! They are delightfully light, they are delightfully witty, and they are delightfully dreamy. Marianna, I want a Casey brother!

Chas Casey wanted no long-term commitments in his life. He liked his single way of living and he wanted to keep it that way. Not in this lifetime would Detective Chas Casey leave behind a widow and a bunch of fatherless kids! Without reservation, the police department was his life and his chosen career. His entire lifestyle was easy . . . until Miranda Lane entered the picture. The woman was driving him crazy! The more he knew of her, the more he wanted! At first, all he wanted was Miranda Lane soft and horizontal, but then . . . all he wanted was to get past her carefully constructed attitude and biting sarcasm. Suddenly, Chas Casey and his carefully built single life were in complete disorder.

Southern romance author, Miranda Lane (aka Randi Rhodes) was attractive, smart, and observant. And currently she was suffering from a severe bout of writers' block. Although, her latest book was progressing, it was progressing slowly and painfully. Both her agent and editor were insisting it was too wimpish. They wanted more pizzazz. Miranda Lane needed a hero! She needed Detective Chas Casey. The man was perfect and she was going to use him - commercially and personally. After all, Detective Casey was the quintessential alpha male. Finally, F.I.N.A.L.L.Y, the writing gods had sent her a gift. The man was gloriously attractive and his mouth was straight from heaven itself - a mouth so soft, so sexy, so luscious! They were perfect for each other. Their relationship was perfect. The man wanted no commitments; she could live with that; in fact, she wanted to live with that. No commitments, no future, no heavy ties binding the heart, they would have nothing but the fun of now.

Not to take anything away from MY HERO, but I did enjoy Jameson's BIG TROUBLE more (A- rating). Still, MY HERO remains a very good book. However, it was Jameson's continual emphasis on the heroine's many hang-ups that is responsible for the rating mark-down. Simply put, the heroine's arrested behavior outwore its usefulness!

Nevertheless, if these two books are any indication of this author's work, Ms. Jameson's future certainly shines! Although, Marianna Jameson maintains a smooth writing style, it is her subtle humor that scores big-time. Jameson's wit is first-class and that establishes pure reading delight.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful new novelist, great hero & heroine 20 Jun 2005
By Tanya L. Schaub - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Miranda Lane is on vacation in Connecticut. She has just turned in her latest manuscript to her Agent and Publisher. Unfortunately they don't like the book as much as she did and they want a "few changes" ok so changing the setting, the Hero from an Beta male to an Alpha male, oh yeah and change his profession seen to be more a "do-over" than a rewrite. So what does Miranda do, she goes to play paintball. She manages to take out 4 guys before they even know what hits them.

Chas Casey can't believe that he was shot in the chest and never saw it coming. It rocks him more than the others as while this was paintball; it was how his father was killed. He is intrigued as well as annoyed to find out she is also his blind date a few nights later.

Chas ends up helping Miranda learn about Police Operations as well as learning a lot about herself. Miranda is no pushover and in fact puts Chas in place on more than one occasion and bests his brother in about 30 seconds flat.

Wonderful debut novel from Marianna and Penguin Publishing!

I like many of the others reviewers want to know when Joe's book will be due out, and whatever the answer it is not soon enough. I say that after staying up past midnight (having to be at work by 7am) to finish the story, much to the grumblings of my hubby to "turn out that light"

5.0 out of 5 stars best romance book in a long time !!! 13 Sep 2005
By PROUDTOBECANADIAN - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I am not a professional reviewer or literary agent etc, just a normal person who loves to read a good romance, and in my opinion this is gold plated !!!

So often in a romance book you only see one character fleshed out either the male or the female and you really dont get to see inside the other person's head.

Chas Casey is sexy, witty and well able to keep up with Miranda who is a strong female character well able to take care of herself

My favorite part of the book is the second chapter when Miranda

meets Chaz at a paintball shooting gallery. She holds her own facing down 4 cops.

Original comebacks, constant chemistry between the two major characters and I also loved the ending of the book, can't wait to read the next book out in May starring Chaz's brother Joe

THIS BOOK IS A GUARANTEED HIT AND IT IS SITTING ON MY KEEPER SHELF WHERE HOPEFULLY A WHOLE LOT MORE BOOKS BY THIS AUTHOR WILL BE THERE IN THE COMING YEARS

5.0 out of 5 stars A fabulous read - great character development 8 Aug 2005
By N. Mitchell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
An interesting story line, great characters and character development. Because of such great attention to detail and research by the author, one feels that they really get to know the characters as well as understand them and their respective careers. This adds a real credibility to the novel and even though classified as fiction, one feels that there is actual factual information relayed. One feels that they really come to understand certain aspects of careers in the police force and the world of authors and creative people. I highly recommend this book to those who would normally be interested in fiction or even non fiction.
