Wow! I loved it!

Romantic and exciting. How far would you go to be with someone who makes you feel alive? How many laws would you break? As many as Jess? Brody is her patient, suffering from two gunshot wounds, administered by a cop. Jess is a compassionate nurse who needs to get out of her mundane life. As she treats Brody every day she must remind herself that he is her patient. Great story. I not going any further so as to get away any spoilers, but I will tell you, Readers, this one shouldn't

This was a quick, entertaining, suspenseful listen! Jess, an ICU nurse is set to take care of Brody, the man taken into custody for killing a police officer. He has been shot in the stomach, and is under 24 hour surveillance, leaving only Jess and his doctor to take care of him. There is an instant connection between the two, though it's hard to determine whether Brody is believable. Is he really innocent? Could he really be in love with her? Should she help him break out of the hospital? She ...more

A Little Suspense, Action and Romance..

Jess, the female lead, is a nurse and her new patient is Brody.

She is a little unsure of how to act around him since he was handcuffed to the bed by the police.

Brody gets the crazy idea in his head of getting his nurse to help him escape.

Most of the book takes place in the hospital.

I liked the dual points of view and the suspense throughout the book.

I feel as though the story got off to slow start and there was not enough connection between Brody and Jess.

This is SUCH an exciting book! There is the romance angle and then there is the mystery of what is truly going on. Brody is a hot, sexy patient with a stomach gunshot wound and mob connections. Jess is his nurse. Jess has been in a depressing funk for a long time and longs for some excitement in her life. Be careful of what you wish for! She is drawn in by Brody's words, his promises and his beautiful eyes and makes a decision that will change her life forever and perhaps endanger it. The reader ...more

This is one quite intense story. Must admire the so very brave Jess who took a major leap of faith in her life, run away with a not only stranger but also a criminal. What was she thinking??? Well, clearly she was not think at all, totally follow her heart and instinct. On the other hand, that Brody is just so hot and bad and makes you just forget who you are, just want to run away and being bad with him. This is one perfect fantasy for being bad without any guilt. I would strongly, strongly ...more

This is my first book by the authors and it didn't put me off wanting to read more, it just probably didn't read like I expected the book to. Not that that is a bad thing by any means. The relationship between Brody and Jess is a nice one and the story has some suspense and twists that you don't really have time to process but this book is a really nice read. It didn't take me long to read and although at times I was left scratching my head at times, particularly in relations to Jill and her ...more

Brody is indeed THE bad patient. This dangerous, naughty mafia hottie was caught in the crossfire of a job gone wrong.
Insisting he's innocent on all charges he prays on his stunning nurse Jess to get him out of the mess he's made, including his life.
Jess is overcoming not one but two heartbreakingly-tragic losses. Dealing with the aftermath is not an easy feat, seeming to get harder as the days go by. Brody being a sneaky patient plots his break out with Jess. What could go wrong?

Jess has been getting lectured about moping around the hospital she works on, but after the death of her husband, she just can't seem to move forward, despite how many people her friends keep setting her up with. When a guy comes into the ER with similar wounds to her late husband, it stirs something in Jess. Brody's been shot, all he wants is to get out of hospital, and hopefully keeps his rep, but with cops posted at his door, that's not looking good. Both of them are trapped by the bad ...more

Bad Patient was a mobster story. I was hooked on the story waiting to see how it could possibly work out. I liked how the story built even though most of it was in the hospital but it had my intrigued.

Jess and Brody were two unlikely people to be together. Jess had a stable job as a nurse in the ICU and Brody was the mysterious patient brought in with gun shot wounds and handcuffed to the hospital bed. While it can be slightly unbelievable that is the joy of books,it doesn't need to be

A good girl, a nurse that is a bit lost after losing her husband. A bad boy rushed into the ICU.

Jess is still trying to live her life after losing her husband and a young patient. Brody, you don't know his story but he makes you believe whatever comes out of his mouth.

This story had some twists and turns that keep you invested. You want to find out what Brody is really up to, what his history and story is. You want to see if Jess will come to terms

i liked the idea of this book. the innocent guy, in the wrong place at the wrong time, accused by the cops of criminal activity. it had drama and murder and intrigue. but something about it left me wanting more.

maybe it was the way brody's feelings seemed to turn on a dime. maybe it was that there wasn't quite enough action (of the non-bedroom variety) to really flesh out the story. i'm still not entirely sure what was missing for me to have rated this one higher

This was a great book. I loved how Jess finally was able to forgive herself, move on from her loss and fall in love again. Brody may have been in trouble with the mob, or so the cops said, but he was such a sweet guy. The connection that he and Jess formed happened quickly and they thought it was going to last...or did they?
There is plenty of action that happens and there are some twists that I didn't expect. Grab this one for an enjoyable read!

The fact that Brody was hired by the Mafia and failed to complete the job he was hired to do but lived (even after the head of the family was aware of his location), is a first for me to read.
Then he and his nurse fall in love with one another within one week of knowing each other?
I gave this one a fair chance and completed it, thinking I'm going to get to the good part but I was disappointed. :(

What a sweet talker Brody turns out to be, he wins baddest of the bad in my book. I do believe Jess is just what the Dr ordered, even though he might end up ruining her life. This is a very well written book and the author has a winner in the story line. Very fast paced and full of danger, love, mystery angst. I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.

I really enjoyed this book and I especially loved the chemistry between Brody and Jess. this one grabs you and pulls you from the very beginning. Full of suspense, angst, all the good stuff that makes you sit on the edge of your seat. If you like suspense this is for you. Given an ARC in exchange for a honest review.

Not bad 3.5 stars

This was well written with a few grammatical errors that were easily overlooked. The only reason I gave it 3.5 stars was that is was just SO unbelievable and there wasn't enough action (actual action, not romantic) for me. I was expecting a lot more on that front. All in all it was a great idea, I feel it just needed a little more substance.
