Adrian having met Alexander is immediately attracted to him. It’s his shyness and innocence that endears himself to Adrian as no other has ever. Adrian is afraid that Alexander being a hero might place him in danger and is afraid of loosing him.
 
Alexander likes the anonymousness of being under the helmet. Will it place him in danger or will it gain him the confidence he needs. He doesn’t want to loose Adrian?
 
Murphy's Hero was a light-hearted romp bringing out the heroism of a shy man and gaining him his hearts desire. Adrian teaching Alexander how to love and being loved was great. Alexander's Shyness was endearing and amusing making me laugh thru the whole book.
