RATING 4 out of 5 stars
Paramedic Alex Sullivan has always thought Matthew Carter was attractive. But there are reasons why Alex knows he shouldn’t get involved with the younger man. Taking Matt in as a housemate seems like a recipe for disaster.
To Alex’s surprise, Matt not only proves to be the perfect roommate, he also makes no effort to hide his attraction to Alex. Matt knows what he wants. Can Alex be the hero Matt already thinks he is?
I was deeply surprised by this short story, it’s the first I read by the author and I’m definitely going to check out her other works.
Although I picked Hero Worship because I thought the blurb was interesting (I love these kind of stories, where the characters already know and are attracted from each other, but they wait for their right time or think their right time won’t come), what truly conquered me was the writing. In my opinion the author delivered an amazing story, the writing is very well done and engaging, it made the reading flow easily, it caught my attention and I read the story in one breath.
Sure the short can’t give enough space to develop and discover more about the characters’ pasts or know more about their HEA, still it deeply satisfied me and it warmed my heart how well Alex and Matt fit together.
If you’re looking for a quick reading, try Hero Worship by Kris T. Bethke, I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.
The cover designed by Written Ink Designs is simple and clean but I’m not crazy about it.
