Tagline: This time, it was the firefighter who needed help--and Kendyl was more than happy to come to his rescue...
In a Nutshell: Kendyl is volunteering at the blood drive as a "walker." A firefighter she's supposed to be walking to the snack table faints and she helps him back onto the cot. They hit it off.
Observations: I really liked this story a lot, but then again, I have a thing for firefighters. When they come into my store, I go all weak-kneed.
This was one of those stories that was so smoothly written, I have trouble finding the good things to point out, because they all meld together so seamlessly. I saw nothing "bad" at all.
Oh, wait, maybe the last paragraph.
"Very funny," Sam said, taking the napkin, grabbing a donut, and heading toward the door.
I thought that seemed like it could be sarcastic. Of course, we know the hero likes her and is giving a compliment, but it comes across as slightly matter-of-fact.
Other than that, it's very easy to see why Johnene bought this one.
