Ooo, this book is hot! Nate Carter starts out as seemingly sort of full of himself and that's exactly what Dr. Holly Bell thinks when she first meets him. Quickly she and we readers realize that's not the case. Holly and Nate quickly fall into a relationship even though they come from two very different worlds. This book sucked me right in!

The book is a romance and there is some hotness throughout the book but this book has great characters that really serve to carry the story along. Nate is a pro baseball player who is down to earth and very caring. Holly Bell is a pediatric doctor who is mired in a case where she thinks one of her young patients may be being abused. The patient's father is a pretty terrible guy. He's rough and has a pretty sordid past where he got away with some things that he should have never gotten away with. Holly is frightened for her patient, Tyler. Holly isn't sure that she's going to be able to take care of the situation with Tyler's father without making it worse. Luckily she's pretty resourceful! There's definitely more that meets the eye in this book.

I flew through it (most of it in one afternoon). It was the perfect book for curling up on the couch on a chilly afternoon with.

Bottom line: If you're looking for a romance with a good story line, this certainly fits the bill!
