Enter Kevin Jensen, the much-too-handsome firefighter next door. Not gonna lie, Kevin is a version of my ideal man—he’s alpha and strong, but he’s comfortable enough with himself to open up and share his feelings. He is the regular romance hero in the fact that he wants to save Heather, yet at the same time, he holds her hand and simply helps her through the hard times when she needs him. In other words, in some moments he helps her save herself. He is the ultimate hero.
What is your version of the ultimate hero? Would you want a man who saves you? Why?
Here is one of my favorite moments in the book, I hope you love it as well:
“Are you sure that it’s okay if I stay, Kevin?
“I can go. I’m sure that I can stay with—” She stopped before she said Brittany. Her only other friend didn’t have a place in her life for Heather’s mess. She had her hands full dealing with the fire at her house. “I can stay at a hotel or something.”
Kevin set her bag next to the wall, but his movements were awkward and tight. “You’re welcome to stay here as long as you need.”
“Kevin, I… Thank you.” She didn’t know what to say. Thank you just didn’t seem like enough when what she really wanted to say was that he was part of the reason she had the strength to leave.
He had shown her there could be more in the world. That there could be something besides heartbreak and the constant thoughts that she could be doing something more to make someone else happy, even if that meant being miserable in her own skin.
Kevin had saved her life and he probably didn’t even realize it.
What do you think? Have you ever met someone who gave you the strength you needed to make a difficult choice?
When she’s not working, she can be found in the wilds of Montana testing her patience while she tries to understand the allure of various crafts (quilting, pottery, and painting are not her thing). She always believes the cup is neither half full nor half empty, but it better be filled with wine.
