See My Review Below…
HERO by Lauren Rowe IS LIVE EARLY!!!!!
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.
Oh Lauren, how I love thee! This book is absolute platinum! (Which is better than gold!)
Hero, the story of Colby and Lydia is what a true romance should be.
The first three chapters absolutely gutted me, I cannot image a pain like that. So I cried, because it made my heart hurt.
Then you get the interaction of the Morgan siblings and you crack up. How Lauren comes up with the zingers that fly between the siblings is amazeballs! “…can you guess why I happen to be here at chicken-thirty on a Saturday morning?” So I laughed out loud, and got crazy looks from my family, because it made my heart laugh.
Finally you get the chemistry of Colby and Lydia and it makes you believe in love, lust and destiny. So I fell in love with these two because it made my heart burn with passion.
From blowing raspberries, to the story of the pearl, this book is aces! I am so glad that Lauren was able to write Colby’s story with mercy and Lydia’s story with grace. I am in awe of your words and your world of characters! To catch a glimpse of past characters was the cherry on top of an already perfect dessert!
You have a fan for life Lauren! Brava for your words!
