Review: Playing Doctor by Jan Meredith

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

First of all, I must thank the author for the review copy. I received an ecopy of this book in exchange for an honest review, and it in no way swayed my opinion.

From the first time I read the synopsis, I was certain that this was going to be a fantastic read. I did expect it to be a bit longer, but Ms. Meredith wrote this book perfectly. It was all steamy bits and attraction from the start.

It was full of emotions, both characters scarred from past experiences, but not broken! Both Beth and Gabe were strong characters but didn't butt heads (just other parts), and had great chemistry.

I enjoyed reading this book. My prediction about the book being good just from reading the synopsis was correct. Jan Meredith was talented, and she weaved together a story I couldn't put down. I wished it was longer, and I hope that she writes more about them, and the amazing secondary characters!

Its not often in a novella like this that attention (good attention) is drawn to secondary characters, but it happened here! I do plan on checking out more works by this author, and I'm suggesting this book and her writing to anyone who cares to listen!

Sorry this review is so short, but seriously, there really isn't much to say about this book other than the fact that it just sucks you in and makes you fan yourself at the same time! Thanks so much Jan Meredith for contacting me about reading your book, because it made my day and I look forward to re-reading again and again in the future and showing it off on my blog and just running my mouth about it. Because it was AWESOME.

Playing Doctor

When a fellow RN jokingly predicts that Beth Roberts will meet a tall, ripped and totally lick-o-licious stranger who will fulfill her deepest desires, it’s supposed to be from across a crowded room, not giving CPR to a wedding guest. Given her tragic love life, Beth has no desire to become involved again, but who could have predicted the ponytailed doctor with the mischievous smile would break through her defenses?

Dr. Gabriel North blamed himself for his wife’s death. Now, after two years of battling guilt and meaningless hookups, he’s ready to move on. When he sees the sexy brunette at his friend’s wedding, his attraction is swift and strong, and he wastes no time in pressing his advantage. One night with the woman who makes him feel alive again isn’t enough, but gaining her trust as a man was going to take more than medical school had prepared him for.
