When a fellow RN jokingly predicts that Beth Roberts will meet a tall, ripped and totally lick-o-licious stranger who will fulfill her deepest desires, it’s supposed to be from across a crowded room, not giving CPR to a wedding guest. Given her tragic love life, Beth has no desire to become involved again, but who could have predicted the ponytailed doctor with the mischievous smile would break through her defenses?
Dr. Gabriel North blamed himself for his wife’s death. Now, after two years of battling guilt and meaningless hookups, he’s ready to move on. When he sees the sexy brunette at his friend’s wedding, his attraction is swift and strong, and he wastes no time in pressing his advantage. One night with the woman who makes him feel alive again isn’t enough, but gaining her trust as a man was going to take more than medical school had prepared him for.
4 stars - Oh yes, this is a quickie - one you will enjoy.
If you are looking for that quick sexy read where you are fanning yourself even though your house is cold, then this is the one you should pick up. I've had some pretty good luck with novellas lately and this one is no exception. The characters were well developed and I enjoyed the time I had with them. Sexy doctor who feels guilty that he didn't save his wife and the sexy nurse who should have walked away from her abusive husband make a great connection. They are just what the other needs to heal and move on.
I will admit to loving the idea of two people meeting each other and being just want the other needs to move on from a difficult circumstance, but this one did not feel contrived. Both from the medical field, they meet at a wedding. Both in need of moving on after death has touched their lives. Both unwilling to move on until they experience each other. It was sweet. It was hot. It was just what I needed.
Don't miss this one if you're looking for hot and sexy with a side of great characters!
