This was such a great read! I'm quickly becoming a big-time Kris T Bethke fangirl; she writes excellent short stories with fabulous characters that always manage to put a smile on my face. Hero Worship is no exception.
I loved both of the MCs, but I'm not ashamed to say I love Matt a little more than Alex, because Matt is just so great. Alex' best friend Carrie is also a fantastic character, and I really loved her and Alex relationship.
But maybe what I love most about Kris T. Bethke is the effortless way she writes bisexuals. Alex is bi. He's got a specific type when it comes to guys, AND a specific type for girls. It's nothing weird, no one says bisexuals have to choose. She just writes it as a matter of fact. Like the sky is blue and the earth is round and bisexuals is a real thing. You know, the way you really really want it to be IRL, too.
This book ended up on my feelgood re-read list and I recommend it with all my heart.
I’m loving these stories. Matt and Alex are just adorable. Despite what Matt may think.
Alex has always been enamored of Matt, but for Alex at first, he was a bit young. Now it seems like he just had a case of hero worship. Especially since Alex saved Matt’s life at his best friend’s wedding. When Matt comes to speak to Alex, Alex wishes he could just kiss the man stupid but all Matt wanted to do was thank Alex for saving him. When Matt strongly suggests in moving in with Alex to take Carrie’s place, more or less, since she moved out, Alex is unsure but let’s Matt move in anyway. The move is seamless. They work well together with no problems. Except on Alex’s days off. Matt makes himself scarce until Alex cons him into running with him. More and more they fall into a relationship, Alex kind of oblivious. Now if Matt can make it more of one, it will be better.
I understand how Alex feels to a point. He doesn’t want to be someone’s hero and then when the novelty wears of
