From best-selling author Melanie A. Smith comes the second book in a new series of steamy contemporary medical romance standalone novels about life lessons that break all the rules.
Even when you know better, sometimes it’s simply too tempting…
Hospital work isn’t for the faint of heart. Becca Dillon knows that firsthand, having worked as a medical assistant in the cardiac unit at Rutherford Hospital for longer than she cares to think about. What she does care to think about is having fun, gossip, and … guys. Her favorite of the three. And why stick to one, when you can sample them all?
That’s exactly her plan when a workplace crush on a mysterious bad-boy orderly unexpectedly takes a very steamy turn. But Vincent DeMarco turns out to be nothing like she expected, and before she knows it, she’s falling hard and fast. She wants him in ways she’s never wanted anyone before, but there’s something he’s keeping from her. Something that’s holding him back. And Becca is going to find out what.
Even though she knows that bad boys don’t make good boyfriends, he seems like he might be so much more. Will her quest unlock the truth behind who he really is? Or will it end their relationship for good? Either way, ready or not, Becca’s world is about to change.
Wow! This book was a huge surprise. Not what I was expecting that is for sure. This book had such a deep and meaningful story that you don’t see that often.
Becca works at the hospital. The biggest place of gossip known to man. Where everyone knows everyone’s business. Sometimes it is like high school with all the drama that goes on. But when she gets involved with the new guy, the drama goes to a whole other level.
Vincent is new and tries to keep a low profile. But Becca just draws him in. He can’t explain it. But they can never be together…no his secrets are to big to ever be able to give his heart to someone.
Overall this book was a very intense read. The characters are wonderful and easily relatable. The story line is one that is more common in real life than people realize. This steady paced read has an eclectic mix of romance, snarky wit and craziness. It is definitely a page turner.
The main characters have an amazing chemistry and are drawn together like two pieces of a puzzle. Becca is fun loving and speaks her mind. Vincent is your strong silent type. The bad boy whom you don’t take home to momma….or do you? If you like romance and want it to have a well laid out and meaningful story, then this book is all you. So pick up your’s today.
