Devon McAllister, Spencer Lawson

In a moment of desperation, Devon McAllister takes her daughter and flees a place where they should have been safe and secure. She has no idea what is around the next bend, but she is pretty certain it can't be worse than what they've left behind. Her plan is to escape to somewhere she can be invisible. Instead, an unexpected offer of assistance leads her to Thunder Point, a tiny Oregon town with a willingness to help someone in need.

As the widowed father of a vulnerable young boy, Spencer Lawson knows something about needing friendship. But he's not looking for anything else. Instead, he's thrown his energy into his new role as Thunder Point's high school football coach. Tough and demanding to his team, off the field he's gentle and kind...just the kind of man who could heal Devon's wounded heart.

Devon thought she wanted to hide from the world. But in Thunder Point, you find bravery where you least expect it...and sometimes, you find a hero.
The Hero was a bit of a slow starter for me. The beginning was a lot of interaction between Devon and Rawley, which was a bit bland. Once I moved past the relationship building between Rawley and Devon, and got to Devon making connections to the rest of Thunder Point, that's when it started to pick up.

Spencer was slow to make his move toward Devon, but once he did, he made up for lost time. I liked Spencer upon meeting him in the previous book, but for some reason I thought he was older in the previous book. But Spencer in The Hero, had his moments. Even through his moments, he remained likeable, and I understood his hesitance.

On the flip side of that, Devon had been through some things as well, and spoke with him more than once about his unlikeliness of being ready to be in a relationship. He assured her she could trust him and that he was, but then he wasn't.

As for Thunder Point, I fall in love with the town a little more with each installment to the series. I'm looking forward to reading more about Scott, and hopefully him finding his love interest. With Devon and the situation she fled, I'm thinking it may bring a few new faces to Thunder Point. I hope to see more of at least two people from Devon's past, Reese and Laine. Hopefully they'll call Thunder Point home as well.
