Publisher's Summary

Some heroes aren't born... they're built.
Westley Worthington has it all. Piles of money, good looks, a head for business, and a seemingly limitless supply of women who want to please him. And that's just the way he likes it. Until a brush with death causes him to rethink his priorities, and consider someone besides himself for the first time in his privileged life.
Cordelia Cross has never had it easy. Her duty to her family has her working as an assistant to a man she hates just to pay her sister's medical bills. When her arrogant boss alienates his last true friend, she finds herself promoted from schedule-managing coffee grabber to the newest member of West's inner circle.
Tempers and passions ignite as the two start spending time together, until a shocking accident puts their newfound attraction on ice. When West is faced with the toughest trial of his life, Cordelia helps him realize that he has all the tools he needs to be a force for justice.
Together they must turn West into the hero no one ever thought he could be.

Surprised and Impressed!

I love it when a story not only meets my expectations, but exceeds it, and Tasha and Mason both far out exceeded any expectations I had on Reconstructed, book one in the Building a Hero series. The story and performance were both entertaining and refreshing.

This audiobook is a little under five hours long but was well written, moved at a steady pace and had very convincing characters. Each scene and chapter evolved naturally, and was not forced. While there is some action in the story, the main focus is developing the characters, and building up the plot.

In the beginning of the story, we are introduced to the main characters while at a private party West is throwing. He has requested for his personal assistant, Cornelia, to set up this party, to bring over a group of ballerina's to have fun, and sex with because hey it's on his bucket list. A picture is quickly painted on the type of man West is by how he takes advantage, and treats his assistants along with everyone else. He's arrogant and has an big ego because he's rich, and he can buy his way in life.

Cornelia needing the money to help support her family, works for West, and is really good at her job, but for her it's not all about the money, she honestly cares about West.

As the story progress, we witness a miracle! West slowly starts to change they way he thinks and reacts to the world; however, this is not an overnight process. Some of these changes are brought on by his feelings for Cornelia, as he starts to mold her and gives her a more active role in the business. Also, he starts to change due to his failed friendships and his passion for his company. It was entertaining and sometimes funny watching him grow, from a all around jerk to someone you could be proud of. West and Cornelia started reminding me of Tony Stark and Pepper Potts from Iron Man.

I really loved the plot, and how West and Cornelia's relationship developed, but it was Mason's performance that really brought the story and characters to life. He projected the right amount of emotions into the characters, and you could easily hear the arrogance in West's voice and the hopefulness in Cornelia's.

This was a great story, and I will definitely be recommending it my friends! (I'm a big fan of whispersync deals and right now the kindle version and audiobook is at a great price. I would certainly buy it now before the price changes in Kindle. Who doesn't love a good sale.)

Where does Reconstructed: Building a Hero rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

its a good one, i listen to a ton of books...so I don't want to rank it...but I super liked it!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Reconstructed: Building a Hero?

When West gets thrown out the window, I was like...Oh No, What about your date with Cordelia?

Cordelia!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I almost did...its the perfect length to binge listen!!

** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **<br/><br/>I totally loved this book, so much I immediately bought #2! This is a great little listen, well narrated and never a dull moment...West is a rich jerk, and Cordelia is his assistant...he throws parties with lots of girls around...always gets his way...Well he has his eye on Cordelia, and she has hers on him...they have a chemistry that they are both ignoring...he finds out that she is more than just a pretty face and has a mind for business..they have a moment, and kiss..he asks her on a date...But...he never shows at the fancy restaurant..Cordelia is super disappointed...West misses there date because he is almost murdered...Why? Because he is kind of a jerk, as I mentioned earlier....his company manufactures very advanced prosthetics and a disgruntled employee is trying to steal the technology...West catches him...and after almost dying he becomes..RECONSTRUCTED!!! LOL This really is a good story..and I am moving on to book 2 now!

An exciting and unmissable new series.

Would you listen to Reconstructed: Building a Hero again? Why?

I would definitely listen again to Reconstructed: Building a Hero.The story is character driven with an exciting and unusual plot. I enjoyed the narrator's performance style. The male voice added authenticity to Westley's alpha male persona and the narrator, Mason Lloyd, softened his tone just enough for the female characters. I was impressed and I've already been checking out what other books he's narrated.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked the how Cordelia openly disapproved of Westley's party lifestyle and of how he treated his friends and employees. I liked how Westley slowly grew into a decent person and made good changes to his business dealings the more he got to know Cordelia.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

There were so many memorable scenes. A few of them were in the beginning of the novel when Cordelia was in her disapproving mode and Westley was being a classic rich playboy. Some of his outrageous antics made me laugh and at the same time made me mortified on Cordelia's behalf as she was such a nice character.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I wanted to listen to this book in one sitting sitting but I had to make do with two! I loved this book and I groaned in a bit of a huff when it ended.

Any additional comments?

I received a copy in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
