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.

Liezel’s Thoughts:

Good, grief this book! The first few chapters were completely heart wrenching. I immediately felt emotional for what the heroine was going through. I thought that if there was one person that deserved some happiness in life then it would be Lydia Decker. She shouldn’t just settle for whomever, she needed someone amazing.

Amazing like Colby Morgan. He is definitely a HERO and if I say so myself – THE Total Package. He had everything going for him except during that very first meeting he wasn’t 100% physically capable to woo our heroine. I loved that his temporary impairments didn’t put him off his game. The witty banter and the flirting was a great distraction.

And even if this pairing sounds just about perfect, Lauren Rowe doesn’t make it easy for them. They had so many obstacles to get past and as they each tackled these together their relationship(s) strengthened tenfold.

What was so great about this story was the emphasis on family.  The Morgan Family is seriously something else. Hero is the first book I’ve read in the series of standalones and I was so impressed I plan to backtrack and read the first two books. There was a thing or two left hanging at the end but nonetheless, I enjoyed this book and can not wait to read about the other remarkable personalities in this family.

The Verdict:
