    A compelling story.

    Rounding up from 3.5 stars. There is a compelling story here in the human connection and love that develop between Liam and Jase after they survive these traumatic events together. I enjoyed reading their story but I wish that the author had not spent so much time debating labels. It's OK for two people to love each other without a label and just when I thought these characters were beyond trying to define what is happening the author brings it up again. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and feelings are my own.

    Gripping story

    3.5 Stars Review by Lisa Late Night Reviewer Up All Night w/ Books Blog Reading the blurb for The Art of Hero Worship by Mia Kerick, I thought it was going to be a different type of storyline. The beginning had me sitting on the edge of my seat gripping my tablet. As in today's day and age, with these horrible shootings, this story starts off gripping. But as the story unfolded and concentrated more on the M/M romance, I felt it was missing a little something with regards to the tragic situation and the healing of that outcome. The storyline moved along at a quick pace and at times I felt it was a bit rushed. No slow build or lasting touches, just a quickie and it's over onto the next scene. I did like how Liam, in turn, had to face his own stuff and that Jason turned around and had to save him. Flipping script that way made this story more enjoyable and the title of the book more meaningful. The blurb of the story gives all the highlights of this book with little more to go on, in my opinion.

    MIA KERICK!

    THE ART OF HERO WORSHIP by Mia Kerick is a very intense story. From the very beginning I was glued to the page. The very way the book started left you holding your breath. The complex characters of both Liam and Jase were incredible and Jason's Mother was one of a kind! I really enjoyed the story and will look for more from Ms. Kerick!

    Totally worth the read

    3.5 Stars This was difficult for me to rate tbh. I was so intrigued with the story and literally read it in one sitting simply because I couldn't put it down. In that regard, I really enjoyed it. But there was so much awkward, too, that I had a hard time giving it the full stars as well. I loved the premise. The book begins with Jase on the floor of a campus theater currently being overtaken by a student shooter. He's there with his girlfriend who was shot and he lost hold of her in the chaos. From nowhere comes a hero, putting himself between Jase and the shooter, guiding him to safety and taking him from the situation. He introduces himself as Liam. He's seen Jase around campus and they live in the same dorms and now they are in the middle of a nightmare together. When the police find them in a friends apartment, they take them into custody and then to a hotel where they leave them while they try to find the shooter. It's during this time that Jase realizes he can't sleep without the comfort of Liam's arms around him, his heart beating in his ear. Jase says multiple times that he is straight, but none of his actions follow up with this statement. Then, when the first sexual act happens between them, it's super awkward and Liam announces that his is straight as well. This was hard to accept. If he had been bi or gay it would have been more believable. I enjoyed the next part of the book where it went into how deep their feelings were tied to each other and how much they needed each other. I bought that they had a connection that was brought on by a distressing situation. I thought that part was very well done, but the reactions by their friends and Liam's parents made the story more about the sexuality part than it did about them being emotionally attached. Again, I couldn't stop reading this story because it was totally gripping and I had to know what happened. The depth of character was very present. I thoroughly enjoyed Liam and all he had to offer to the story. He was so full of love and charity and willingness to do anything for Jase, but I just wish there was more substance to their deep feelings. Honestly, I'd recommend this one and I'll probably read it again.
