Blythe Coopman never imagined she’d be homeless, but a series of events has landed her on San Antonio’s streets…hungry, tired, and scared. She clings to her most precious possession, a phone accidentally swiped from a local firefighter, who, instead of canceling the number, starts texting her. Soon, the man’s calls and texts are the highlight of her days, but she declines his frequent offers of help. Blythe refuses to be his burden—until a vicious attack takes the decision out of her hands.
When the woman he’s already begun to care for ends up in the ER, Sawyer “Squirrel” McClay is livid—and ashamed. He should have insisted she accept his help long ago. Now, he’s not taking no for an answer. While his friends rally round Blythe, Squirrel’s bond with her grows stronger by the day, until he realizes he’ll do anything to keep her safe, healthy, and happy…even as his own lifelong insecurities work against him.
But despite leaving the streets behind, Blythe and Sawyer discover old dangers still linger, threatening to end the couple’s new bliss before it’s barely begun.
** Shelter for Blythe is the 11th book in the Badge of Honor: Texas Heroes Series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings.
Sweet story of Blythe and Squirrel. I think he had more “hang ups “ than she did. But a HEA was awesome to see.
Not your usual hero
Sawyer, aka Squirrel, is not the typical alpha male hero. He's more like a real guy, and definitely has his own insecurities. Blythe was a victim of bad circumstances that ended up with her being homeless. Squirrel finally gets her trust to let him help her; along with all of his friends. This was a good book, and I enjoyed reading it.
It’s Squirrel’s Turn
Blythe Coopman has been homeless town, she gets in serious trouble.
Sawyer “Squirrel” McClay can’t get the homeless woman he inadvertently gave his phone to out of his mind. Something about Blythe brings out all of his protective instincts and admiration.
I really enjoyed this book in the series. Squirrel and Blythe are two really decent people who don’t have a ton of self-appreciation for themselves but have a definite appreciation of each other, as well as a wild attraction.
