Dane McCormick’s job negotiating leases and building out furnished office suites takes him all over the country. He stays until the job is done—and then he moves on. As satisfying as the job is, it leaves him no place to call home and no chance to build a personal life. After arriving in Greenville, South Carolina, for a job, a severe stomach virus knocks Dane for a loop. He finds a local urgent care clinic… and a tall, dark, and handsome doctor who goes well above and beyond his duties to treat Dane. The doctor’s bedside manner makes Dane forget all about his stomach flu.
Carter Baldridge has dedicated his life to caring for others. Since graduating from medical school, he has spent all his time and energy building his urgent care business. But the morning he steps into his examining room and sees Dane McCormick on the table, he realizes it might be time to devote some attention to a part of life he has neglected. The spark is there, but so is a major obstacle in the form of Dane’s peripatetic lifestyle and a bad experience in Carter’s past. Both have to decide if the risk is worth the reward.
This is the first time I read this author, and I quite enjoyed it. It is a fast, cute read. The pace is quick with a time jump or two. I must say I loved the way they met. Who would have thought? It drifts to between the past and present so we can get a feel for how they meet and their relationship progresses.
The book starts with the relationship with them maybe moving to the next level. then goes back 4 months. Dane is happy with his life and finally setting down roots. He meets a doctor when he goes in to be seen for a stomach virus.
They have some demons to exercise together. Dane loves his new life and he gets a phone call from a friend and his boss and has to uproot his life again. Carter doesn’t want to do long distance. He has been burned before.
Now, I like the book, I really did, though I do feel Dane did not fight for what he wanted most. That was a future right now with Crater. That was a tough pill for me to swallow, along with him letting his friend control what was already set to be. I can overlook that because it was good and we get a feel of what they feel for each other. I know what they both want. With that being said though, I like that they were open and honest about what they could and could not put up with. What they could and could not handle. I also love reading a good holiday romance, especially with the holiday season passing.
I will read more from this author as I did enjoy this book. You want a quick and read with and the element at a second chance romance? Then this is the book for you.
