Welcome! Welcome! Swoony Saturdays are your opportunity to be introduced to a book hero who fits high quality hero characteristics. (okay, so he just makes us weak in the knees for all kinds of reasons, but you get the point)
The photos involved are chosen as the most representative of the heroes featured, so IF they look like someone you’ve seen before, that’s almost entirely accidental.
Who? Josh Tyler
Personality summary: Josh Tyler is a man whose past has brought gravity to her personality but depth to his faith. As a musician in a band that performs all over the world, he’s used to being in the limelight but has also learned, due to painful circumstances, to guard his privacy. He wears a smile more readily than a frown…unless the heroine, Paige, is involved, but don’t worry – her proclivity for being unintentionally ridiculous turns Josh’s frown around. With a desire to do what is right, a love for family, music, and Jesus, he oozes a confidence which is seen best in his compassion with others.
What makes us swoon?
AUSTRALIAN!! (Everyone agrees that this is the top swoony feature 😉)
He’s a musician (guitar)
He can sing
He loves his family.
Great smile (this is a very swoony one for me. Smiles!! Sigh)
He’s gentle when it’s needed most.
Seriously, this guy is pretty adorable. Funny, confident, flirty…AND he loves Jesus!!!!!!
Kissing level of such swooniness: Okay, we don’t get a whole lot of kisses from Josh, but there’s a FANTASTICALLY notable one that happens in a certain ‘tunnel/hallway’. Unforgettable! Up there in the swoony charts. A solid 4.
Basic hero type: Josh can brood with the best of them but underneath is a very caring heart. I think brooding might not be his typical trait, so I’m placing him in the Wentworth (for grudge holding) with a dash of Knightly underneath. What do you think?
How can I meet this swoony mister?
You can find Josh Tyler in all his swoon worthy handsomeness in Kara Isaac’s most recent release, Then There Was You. You can check out my review HERE. And don’t miss out on the Book Journeys post featuring this beautiful country!
