Scrubs was a weird book. I didn't hate it, but i didn't love it either. Although the beginning was excellent, from early on i found myself losing interest fast.But suddenly that changed.

Sean or Lucas whichever you prefer, is an OK guy, with a good heart, an intriguing past and a formidable plan. But he isn't the bad-ass he so desperately tries to make us all believe. I really liked him until he started acting like a macho James Bond.

Aoife -what a name, i know- is a sweet girl, very responsible,

An intriguing, suspenseful story about revenge with a dash of sexiness.
“Revenge is a dish best served cold.”

Lucas Callaghan is just a made up name, but his calling to help others, be it as a doctor or as an undercover cop, is as real as ever. After eight years he’s back in Dublin not just to take the man responsible for distributing drugs and ruining his life out of circulation, he’s also back to exact his revenge. But can he control his feelings long enough to do it?

This was a really intense book. The story started really nicely with a fantastic prologue. Then it came to today and everything was a bit confusing in the beginning but soon enough everything made sense. So, Lucas is out for revenge! The plot was moving fast enough with a few surprises in the way. The book was written by dual POV and it was well done. The writing was quite direct and strong.

Aoife is a strong heroi

Good but hate the cliffhanger

Why,why,why the cliffhanger!!! I was just enjoying it and was hoping that I would get more information of why Lucas aka Sean is looking into Morgan but also the change of career too. Since he's a hot doc and a heartbroken one too, I'll forgive him. I need some more of Lucas so I'm off to see when part two is coming. I NEED MORE!!

This is part 1 of a novella serial by Brooke Harris. It tells us the story of Lucas who lost his fiancé 8 years ago (overdosed). He loved her very much and wants to make the responsible ones pay! He returns to Dublin with a new identity to find revenge. To achieve this he goes undercover as a doctor in the university hospital. He feels a strong attraction to 1 of the students, Aoife.

OMG! I have just finished this and wanted to get my thoughts out there while its fresh in my mind! I adored the book No Kiss Goodbye by this authors alter ego Janelle Brooke Harris which I raved about after being recommended it by fellow reviewers and members of THE Book Club over on Facebook. So an offer from the author herself to read an ARC was way too good to pass up!

I can honestly say Scrubs is off to a good start,I’m mildly entertained and will continue to read the series. While cliffhangers normally put me in that gimme gimme mold this one not so much maybe because I was hoping for a jaw dropping and clutch my pearls moments. Again I was very much entertained while reading this rather quick series.

I am so beyond honored that I got to review this book. From the moment I laid eyes on the sexy-ass cover I was curious. I couldn't wait for the tour to swing round my way so I could sign up to review. I checked my email several times waiting for my copy to arrive and finally it did.

If I could, I would give Scrubs a perfect 10! The writing was fun and gripping, the flawed characters were so well written that I loved them with a passion. I read this book all in one go, and then I had to email the

I received  Scrubs as an ARC via Netgalley, and since the cover and the title reminded me of the Life or Death series by Isobel Irons, I thought I might as well give it a go.

What I didn't know was that this book is actually the first book in a series , a fact the author clearly states at the beginning of the book. I know some people do not like novellas (and I kind of

This probably doesn’t need an explanation. I mean, look at that cover. Hot doctor…with a gun. What does a doctor need with a gun? I was definitely intrigued. And the synopsis really got me. I just had to know Lucas’ story and what has him needing revenge. I had to read this one. It sounded SO good.


The beginning. Wow. Now that is how you introduce a story. The prologue and first chapter had me in tears and on
I received this book for free through NetGalley in return for my honest opinion.

"DUN-DUN-DUUUUN!!!" Is what I said in my head when I got to the cliffhanger. I've seen in all sorts of places that this serial novella has a cliffhanger at the end. While it's nice to have been announced previously, I didn't find the cliffhanger to be that bad. I have been left with WAY worse cliffhangers when finishing up a book.

This is a fairly short novella. Depending on your reading speed, you can have the entir

This is the first book I've read by the author and I wasn't disappointed. This is book one in the series and there is a major cliffhanger at the end. This is a quick read but you do get a lot out of it. The author did an amazing job on keeping you hooked on the story and now all I can say is I need the next book in the series.

Scrubs is part one of a serial novella. It follows the story of Aoife and Lucas. Aoife is a med student trying to follow her fathers dream for her to become an affluent doctor like he is. Lucas, a former doctor, now undercover cop, is seeking revenge against a man who essentially turned his life upside down 8 years prior. But there's something about Aoife that Lucas just can't resist, and after she turns his world upside down, hi

I don´t know really what to say about this book. It was told in a nice way and fast paced but it raise a lot of questions and doesn't answer not even one.
On the bright side is a short story, but it ends on a cliffhanger what means that the whole story could have been told in one book and we would be saved of the wait for the next one so we know WTH is going on

What attracted me to Ms. Harris’s book is that she does let her readers know that it is a novella serial series and book one ends in a cliffhanger. I tend not to read novella series, but between the synopsis of the story and the fact that Ms. Harris warned me about book one, I decided to read it and I am glad I did.

After an argument essentially cost him the life of his fiancee, Sean decides he's going to avenge Victoria's death. The guilt he has over the accident drives him throughout this part of the story. Part of his cover has him utilizing his 'real' job as a doctor, but he's now wearing the hat of Lucas Callaghan. When he meets Aofie, though, his guilt and desires start to inter-warp, and as expected, he doesn't exactly handle it well. Beyond Sean/Lucas's guilt, Aofie has her own misgivings in life an ...more

Suspense, revenge, hurt and ardent passion. When combined with a clever plot and a fantastic narrative, the story is good enough not to pause for anything.

The way the author writes made me feel every bit of sadness, pain and desire that turned the characters alive. She's created a man torn by lost love and a hunger for revenge while at the same time he's denying himself any glimpse of hope. And then there is that vibrant woman who can melt his inner demons against his will.

So I have to start with my questions, is there a connection to the mother and the fiancé? I wish I felt a little more connected with the characters. It seemed like this could really get good, but it is like reading an entire novella of just an introduction. I will probably read the rest just because that is my weakness, having to know what is in store, and I am truly hoping I get more of a dramatic sequence, but for me this one just missed the mark

I absolutely loved this book! The characters were lovable and humorous (and sexy), so it wasn't hard to really get into the book. I'm giving it a four star rating due to the confusing beginning. I understand that the book is meant to be a periodical, so its short and there a lot of unanswered questions at the end of the first installment. However, it should have been a little clearer at the beginning. I was so lost at first that I nearly gave up after the first three chapters (I'm SO glad I didn ...more
