Item Description...
The horsemen on Gil Sorrent's farm discovered April Montague's bath shop, and suddenly they were sparkling clean, attracting women instead of working. So Gil barged into the shop with a bone to pick-only to meet April herself, his lovely polar opposite. And when our bluegrass hero tried out her soap for himself, love-shy April had to watch out.

Bluegrass Hero  Apr 9, 2009
Although this story was sweet it was a bit of a disappointment to me. After reading The Perfect Blend, I fell in love with this author and her writing. This story just didn't add up to me. Why would a man not want his sweaty guy to smell nice? I also didn't care for how little the characters seemed to go to church or really even pray. This was not my favorite Love Inspired story and I am hoping other books by this author are better.
Jenna Mindel  Jan 8, 2009
LOVE this book. Love hard-shelled heroes with soft centers - and Gil in Bluegrass Hero does not disappoint. He's got plenty of reason for the rough and tough exterior considering his past. The conflict between him and the lovely Emily is so well drawn, I truly didn't know how they'd work it out. I won't give away any spoilers - but the ending MORE than satisfies. :)
In the end, it was a great story.  Sep 8, 2008
This book was a little hard to get into at first. A lot of talk about soap, with not enough happening between the main characters. Just my option. Though I was glad that I stuck with it because it was really a great story. One that is close to my heart, involving troubled souls. Not giving up on them, yet giving them the respect and hope Jesus wants us to show upon others. And in the end, I did learn some interesting things about soap. Allie comes up with a lot of good lines and meaningful sayings, as I am fining out with each book I read of hers.
Am a big Allie fan but sadly this is not one of her best.  Sep 1, 2008
An avid reader, I do enjoy a good book. I also try to give a fair review of a book. And in this case it pains me, but I have to give a really low review to one of my favorite authors.

The story idea itself was not really the problem. I like the small town setting. Emily Montague has a bath shop the sells wonderful soaps, lotions etc.(what girl wouldn't love to have one of those?) Even the side characters are likeable. Then enter Gil Sorrent, a local farm owner who is opposed to Emily's shop. He runs a youth at risk working farm and through a series of mishaps the teens think one of Emily's soaps has special powers to attract the girls.

However it is the lack of consistency in the characters and a very disjointed plot that made it get such a low rating. There is no motivation for why he hates her shop so much. As the story unfolds his antagonism becomes almost unwarranted and out of control. I get that Gil thinks soap is just a practical thing that doesn't need fragrance, but his reaction is SO over the top that it doesn't make sense. I was waiting for some big revelation at the end like he was abused with soap or something that's how weird he is in this story. **SPOILER WARNING** you do find out later that he himself has a pretty serious past and that level of depth is great but honestly it never explains his bizarre reactions to soap.

Even Emily admits he gets hyped about it, "So why did someone like Gil Sorrent get all hyped up about it? He forbade her to sell the soap to his employees. She found that highly irritating, even if she did somewhat understand his motives." Page 47
Highly irritating? Are you kidding me? Her reaction is way off. If you just spent all your savings to open a shop and some guy yells at you and forbids you to sell it would you think it was just irritating? Let alone she says she somewhat understands his motivations. How? Not once do you ever understand this man's motives v/s his extreme actions -he forbade her to sell her soap? This is her only source of income! He comes off like a dictator.

Eventually in the end he obviously comes to love her. Still even though Pleiter does try to show a change, there is a distinct leap a reader is expected to take in order to reconcile his change and his continued disrespect of her profession. In the end, he understands the symbolism of Emily giving him her "Mercy Soap", but with over 75 % of this story devoted to his cruel comments about her shop, it still seems very unbelievable.

So skip this as there are many other wonderful Allie Pleiter books such as The Perfect Blend, My So-Called Love Life, and Masked By Moonlight for example.

Another great read from Allie Pleiter  Aug 25, 2008
Allie Pleiter is one of my favorite authors, so I was very excited to find out that she had not one, but two books released this summer. The first, MASKED BY MOONLIGHT definitely did not disappoint. The second, BLUEGRASS HERO caught me right away and I couldn't put it down until I finished. Ms. Pleiter has a gift for creating uniquely wonderful characters that touch your heart and keep you reading. She tends to create couples from complete opposites such as disciplined banker Will Grey (tea drinker) and impulsive would-be entrepreneur, Maggie Black (coffee fanatic) in THE PERFECT BLEND. In this current release there doesn't seem to be any way the main characters, Emily, crime victim, and Gil, reformed criminal, can bridge the gulf between them. But love and the grace of God have other plans.

And the best news of all - BLUEGRASS HERO is the first book in Allie Pleiter's new series, Kentucky Corners.
