Nerd. Introvert.
He was the hero they never knew they wanted.


All Wendell hoped for was a decent job, a hot new car and a girlfriend to match.   What he got was the mantle of a legendary hero, the heart of a girl who had no idea who he really was…and a diamond bigger than his fist.   What could possibly go wrong?
