One of my favorites that I went crazy over. Funny and easy going read.

Luke Walker is an ER doctor who made the mistake of letting his boss know how he felt about the layoffs at the hosptials. And the money spent going to the clinic called the Healing Waters Clinic, but the press overheard and printed it out of context. Now he has to do duty at the clinic to make up for his negative publicity. He has 3 months of Saturdays to work for Nurse Faith McDonald a fiery redhead who is the director of the clinic.
She just happens to make Luke's blood tingle so before the 3

Typical Shalvis read. Light and fluffy, with a predictable plot. It was fun enough to break up the paranormal romance series I'm reading. This was a lot heavy on the UST, though, and light on the resolving of it. After a while, the misses got really frustrating. And the ending, rather than leave me with a smile on my face, was way too cheesy for my taste. I was cringing when I should've been smiling.
3.5 stars
An easy read, enjoyable enough, about an ER doctor, Luke Walker, and Faith, a former nurse, turned Healing Clinic manager, who clash over different principle on healing people. Sparks ignite, etc etc.
It did take me a little while to get into this story. But once I started there was no stopping me then. The characters took a little to warm onto me, but then again I have never been big on the medical stories. Not that this was a medical story, yet it was still there.

I REALLY liked this story a lot! Luke and Faith were a perfect match and this was one of my favorite works from Shalvis. I just didn't want it to end. 4.5 stars....there was enough spice in the book for me but, a tad more and it would have been a 5!! Loved it!!

I was back and forth while reading the book. It's one of Ms. Shalvis's earlier works. Most of the time the heroine really annoyed me, as she kept getting in her own way and was too much woe is me for my comfort.
