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 course, Lydia is gorgeous beyond words.
No, when I first laid eyes on Lydia Decker—my physical therapist—I was lying flat on my back in the ICU, high as a kite on painkillers, breathing on a ventilator, my bones as broken and splintered as my spirit.
When I first laid eyes on Lydia Decker, she was a ray of light in the dark. Hope for the hopeless. A salve for my singed and battered soul.
She said she’d been assigned to fix me. That she was there to bring me back to life. She said helping me was her calling.
And then she touched me. Physically, emotionally, spiritually. She healed me.
And I fell in love.
But what I didn’t know... what I couldn’t possibly know... was that Lydia Decker needed fixing far more than I ever did.
So…. here is what you need to know to begin with if you have or haven’t read the other Morgan brothers books, Ball Peen Hammer and Captain. They all run on the same timeline. So you have read one scene twice already, but this time you will be reading it from someone else’s point of view. I get a little confused at times because I had moments of dejavu which will happen since we have read some parts previously.
Hero is SO moving, I started this book prior to church one morning, after I did my makeup, so I feel the need to issue a mascara alert. I was sitting there with tears streaming down my face from the unexpectedness of it all. I went thinking that Hero would but just as silly as the books prior and it is funny, but not to the same extreme as the others were.
Colby Morgan, the oldest son and fireman, is a freaking stud! He’s high on painkillers and still one of the most romantic heroes I have ever read. In fact, all of the men in this series are so freaking swoon-worthy it’s no wonder I’m still single, I want a man that lives up to the Morgan brothers. In fact, what really makes them amazing is their strong family bond. I even went as far to ask my friend if it was acceptable to want to be adopted by a fictional family, her response… if it’s the Morgan’s then yes totally fine!
Lydia has had a rough go of things and a lot to overcome, I love watching her overcome what’s holding her back and what was at first a combustible relationship slowed down into a tortuous slow burn romance. These two had some crazy long foreplay that would kill most couples and they would want to cave and give in, but it was so worth the wait for both of them. Their relationship was stronger for it.
Oh and did I mention that on top of all of this goodness Lydia is a single mom? I mean… we all I know that I love single parent romances, but Colby’s relationship with Lydia’s kids moved me to tears and I can only hope to find a man that loves my son as much as Colby loves Lydia’s babies.
