The Thick of Things by JL Campbell
Three reasons readers will love the hero
Douglas Blythe is a confident, mature man who catches Khalila Skyers’s eyes and fires up her imagination. His role in the story is that of a well-adjusted male, who knows what he wants and does what is necessary to acquire it. His personality makes the story an interesting journey.
Here’s my take on why readers will love Douglas:
- He treats Khalila like a queen. Douglas is the kind of guy women dream about. He shows Khalila that he wants more than the physical attraction that burns between them, makes her feel cherished, and spends generously when he takes her out and about.
- He says exactly what he means. Women appreciate honesty. In his conversations with Khalila, he’s direct and communicates without any frills, even if his words end up shocking her at times.
- He’s disciplined to a fault. While Khalila craves for another taste of their initial physical encounter, Douglas insists on keeping things chaste between them. His restraint makes their eventual coming together more intense and meaningful.
Douglas is kind and sensitive and knows how to treat a lady. He impresses on Khalila that he knows who he is and what he wants. What more can a woman ask for?
