Strength on the inside is just as important as strength on the outside.
Bull Krebbs, part-owner and head of security at the local nightclub, hasn't been in a serious relationship in a long time. After rescuing Zach Spencer from being trampled, they begin to spend time together. Now they have to work through Bull's interesting work history along with family drama to determine if they can get their happy ending.
Bull had the perfect personality for head of security and former mercenary. However, the rough exterior was just covering the protective sweetheart that he really was. Zach was adorable, but at the same time, he had an inner strength that has carried him through a challenging life. I really enjoyed watching these two slowly get to know each other. Bull was such a romantic guy with Zach, and they had some really nice dates. The comic book angle was cute with Zach featuring Bull as the superhero in his first book.
When Bull's past comes back to haunt him, it got a tad unbelievable. The excessive use of the word "growl" also got to be a bit much. Zach's uncle and Bull's mom gave us an idea of what these two dealt with growing up, and it wasn't pleasant for either of them. It was lovely that they were both able to see the beautiful souls beneath each other's exterior shells.
This was a very enjoyable story about two people who fit together nicely, and it easily kept me turning the pages.
