Like so many others, I’m trying to balance many things in my life. I’ve found over the last few years, especially since I’ve started to write, that I’ve allowed certain indulgences of mine to fall to the side. My “me” time is even more limited 🙂 I’m not complaining at all, but I’ve decided it’s time for me to at least enjoy my love of reading again. Even if it takes me a week to read a book instead of a day or a few hours like it used to, I’m going to go for it. lol
So, every once in awhile, if I read a book that I particularly enjoyed I’m going to post my review and the book information so if any of my blog readers are interested they can check it out too.
I’m not a professional reviewer or anything like that. I’m choosing to share some of the books I’ve enjoyed on my site. I enjoy just about every genre, so I’ll be all over the board 🙂
Today, I’d like to share Playing Doctor by Jan Meredith.
This little novella is a fun, hot read.
I liked the fact that the heroine Beth had an older son and that her and the hero were older as well….33 and 36. Beth also had an interesting background that lent a lot of reality to her reasoning in not thawing her heart in the interest of love…
Dr. Gabe North. I can sum him up in one word. YUM!
This guy is sex on legs. Smexy dialogue, smexy ponytail, smexy humor.
He has a few issues from his past as well that bar him from moving on with his future. But both of them work together to overcome their issues.
I enjoyed the dialogue and between Gabe and Beth. Sometimes fun and humorous, and sometimes reflective and serious. A nice range to get the feel for each of them and how their pasts have molded their present. I also liked their attraction…very natural and believable.
Even though this was a novella, it wasn’t lacking in character development or plot.
I enjoyed my little break from reality with this fast paced read, the delicious love scenes, and the book overall.
One night with a sexy stranger is just what the doctor ordered…
When a fellow RN predicts Beth Roberts will meet a tall, ripped, and totally lick-o-licious stranger who will fulfill her deepest desires, she laughs it off. Given her tragic love life, Beth has no desire to become involved again. But who could have predicted the doctor with the mischievous smile she meets at a wedding, or the chemistry sparking between them that threatens to break through her defenses?
Dr. Gabriel North spent two years blaming himself for his wife’s death. Having finally battled through the guilt and overcome his demons, he’s ready to move on. When he meets a sexy nurse at his friend’s wedding, the 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 Beth’s trust is going to take more than seduction…
