Formats: Kindle Unlimited, eBook ($3)
Libby Penny is a single mom trying to get through med school while also paying the bills. Jamie Grantham is an accomplished anesthetist and the Medical Education Director, who is aghast when one of his students falls asleep during a lecture. Jamie meets Libby, and sparks fly.
Despite the obvious chemistry, Jamie’s elitism—as he comes from a well-to-do family—shines as he remains oblivious to the fact that people in med school could possibly have hardships in their outside life. Eventually circumstance creeps in, and his and Libby’s worlds are thrust together. He wants the best for her, she wants the best for her daughter, and when her side job becomes a point of contention, concessions must be made on both sides.
The story flowed quite well, and the side characters were an enjoyable benefit to the book. There were parts of Jamie that would have had me walking away, but he overcame his jerk-side and ultimately the two make a powerful couple.
I received an ARC via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
