Hero(ine) Addict by Blythe H. Warren

Not all heroes wear capes. Nor are they all good people.

What was the book about?
Harper’s girlfriend Caroline is a pediatric oncologist so of course work is her priority. Harper is fine with this, even though she sometimes wishes they had time for more than just sex, albeit hot sex. She’d like to be able to talk about her day at the job she hates or the charity work she loves. When a friend from work invites the couple to dinner at a fancy restaurant, Harper decides to attend despite Caroline canceling once again at the almost last minute. Harper’s evening is saved by Eliot, a late arrival at the dinner and the only person to pay attention to her. After spending the day at the hospital with her seven-year-old niece, Eliot, a comic book artist, doesn’t really feel like socializing and things get worse when her best friend volunteers her to help out Harper with a fundraiser she’s organizing. 

Featured Tropes
Age gap; Family; Infidelity

Book Strengths
The characters. At first I found Harper a little too naive to be true. Then I thought maybe she’s simply a good person, someone who sees the best in people and wants to do the right thing. She’s so busy looking up to her unappreciative girlfriend that she doesn’t see she’s as worthy of respect and love as anyone else. Eliot is a sweetheart too, and I really liked both families around them. 

Book Weaknesses
There could have been more character-development. Eliot and Harper are sweet but one-dimensional. And the conflicts resolve themselves a bit too quickly.

Character Chemistry
The chemistry between the two main characters is obvious to everyone (readers included) except Harper. It’s good and plausible but not off the charts.

Wrap up
A cute and quick read. Don’t let the infidelity aspect deter you from reading this book, Harper and Eliot deserve a chance.
