Another likeable story from Sara Bell. I enjoy the hospital setting in this one -- both Travis and Jeremy are wonderful characters to be read. The 'mystery' is handled well. All around, a feel good story.

Another lovely story, and while short packs everything in without feeling rushed.

With this one you get intrigue mystery family drama and of course love. Now if only we could have Cal’s story lol.

Sara Bell is usually good for a reliable read.
I enjoyed this one and the intrigue was well done.
I might have been a bit surprised that Travis accepted Jeremy's 180 so quickly, but all in all a nice story with two nice guys with baggage.
I hate when people judge you based on first impressions without getting to know you, what I like about our novel is that our MC is forced to reevaluate his first opinion and admit that he made a mistake. Not many of us have the decency or courage to do that.

Also everyone assumes bad impressions are normally because your poor or dress badly, it is just as easy to judge someone of the opposite caliber. As is the case in this novel.

Also I just want to say it takes more than blood to make family. I

Sara Bell is a genius with short stories - of course I wish it was longer as I really enjoyed the characters, setting and story - but I love her writing style and don't feel cheated by the length. Great escapism with just enough realism.

Hm. Okay, it was a nice story. Very nice for a while.

But in the end I just have trouble accepting the speed with which those two guys fall into a relationship, even if that makes me a hypocrite for a number of reasons, one of which being that I’ve read numerous romances that did the same where I just went with it. In this case just going with it is tricky since this story doesn’t have a fantasy feel to it. It’s quite serious and a serious story implies a touch of realism in my mind. Not necessar

Travis is an intern or resident (not sure) at a big hospital where his father is the Chief of Medicine, however his father hates his guts. Jeremy is another Dr. who seems to delight in being an asshole to Travis and making snide comments about his Dad helping him out. Jeremy overhears something that makes him realize maybe he was wrong about Travis and when Travis is accused of giving a young boy the wrong medicine and then covering it up on the charts Jeremy comes to his defence and they both a ...more

3.75 Stars---Fairly good, solid contemporary novella surrounding Medical residents, familial strife, a lawsuit, a pediatric patient placed in severe harms' way, and allusion to Tarot cards. The Tarot cards I believe are a series and are primarily used to more for guidance on life's path, rather than actually foretelling of the future. The medical terminology was accurate, and even though the Neurosurgeon was a prick and the romance between the 2 residents seemed a bit rushed in spots, it was sol ...more

An interesting read, if a little quickly-written. The plot is interesting, the relationship enigmatic, and the personal histories of each chara noteworthy. My only complaint: it would have been much better - and much more satisfying - if it had been about 100+ pages more, and everything was gone into with a bit more detail, instead of the quickly almost-skimming-over method Bell uses.

Another shortie by Sara Bell, reads a bit like a writing exercise inspired by the tarot card it was named for but not bad. Predictable like most of her stuff but what can you do in so few pages when you wants you a happy ending?

I don't recall reading this shorty jet. The main story develops fast and is partly rushed. We didn't get an epilogue, which I missed.

“You, Aaron, are a revolving SOB.

Doesn't she mean revolting? Harlan leaned in to whisper.

Afraid not, Travis said. You'll see.

You're a son-of-a-bitch no matter which way you turn.”
