My Review

This is the first book  by Brooke Williams that I have read and I was extremely impressed.  This was a wonderful book.  A romantic tale that has not been told before.  If any of her other books are like this book then I am a new fan for life.  Fan girling!!!!

In this book Megan is a self-employed voice over artist.  She works from home and is reclusive.  She is not social and she doesn’t communicate with people face to face.  When she gets talked into taking her sister Molly’s place in a local tv show called “The Leftover” she starts to panick.  This show is a mild form of the show “Survivor” Megan worries she will not get past round one, but she is loyal to her sister and will try her best.

A paramedic named Cane was dumped on the live tv show Accept This Dandelion.  Heartbroken, he throws his self into work, pushing his friends away.  He decides to accept a position as the medic for The Leftover.  He will be on site to take care of the contestants if they are injured during the show.  He meets Megan and she is cute and shy.  She may just be what he needs to mend his broken heart.
