Tarryn King has always been a thorn in Connor Jacobs’ side. Ever since the moment his disabled little sister became best friends with the snooty brat, Connor was left with no other purpose than to be the grumpy big brother, wishing for their falling out.

And he learned to live with that—until the day he gave her the shirt off his back … and discovered it’s possible to be jealous of an inanimate object.

For two decades, that embedded thorn has been the object of his desires. But that’s a secret he’ll never tell. She’ll always see him as her BFF’s mean older brother.

Besides, she isn’t just his sister’s best friend anymore. She’s THE Tarryn King. And what could a famous actress who has everything see in him? A single dad who collects garbage for a living.

But when her very attractive—and very available—costar enters the picture, Connor knows he has to make his move … or live with regret forever.



When I read The Girl in the Front Row, I really, really hoped that Kelsey Kingsley would write Tarryn and Connor’s story. Sibling’s best friend stories are one of my favorites, and everything about Tarryn and Connor’s story checked off all the boxes for me.

This book starts off as enemies-to-lovers, but what is really simmering underneath is hate fueled by years of unrequited love. It’s obvious to Connor’s teen daughter, Sammy, that they are head over heels for one another way before it’s obvious to Connor and Tarryn.

The Hero in Her Story is a beautiful slow burn, friends-to-lovers, celebrity/average Joe romance. KK really took the time to develop the friendship between Connor and Tarryn as they shifted from antagonizing one another to becoming so much more.

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.


   Kelsey Kingsley is a romance author living in New York with her husband, son, and a cat named Ethel, who once upon a time wanted to write horror novels but quickly learned she wasn’t scary enough. She loves music, tattoos, makeup, and Edgar Allan Poe. Kelsey is a Slytherin, a hater of cheese, and a fluent speaker of curse words.
