Book Blurb:Reeling from a recent break-up, Anne is surprised when she meets Jim, her handsome ER doctor. She’s been burned one too many times before, with the most recent relationship fail happening not even an hour before they meet! Catching her on-again-off-again now definitely-off-again boyfriend with her roommate, in her own living room, was definitely not how she planned on spending her Saturday. She definitely didn’t plan on spending it in the ER either! It’s not been Anne’s best day, to say the least!
Jim’s been looking for ‘The One’ for what seems like forever. His work hours limit his dating life and any women who come into the ER are either drunk out of their minds or are on enough drugs to make rock stars jealous. Getting involved with a patient is the last thing that he wants or needs. Until Anne.
Will Jim and Anne get their happy ever after or does Ben, her best guy friend, have intentions of his own? Sometimes, you have to close your eyes and listen to your heart in order to see the future.
Excerpt:“Visiting hours are over.” Dr. Jim almost growls this as he clenches his jaw open and closed. His knuckles are almost turning white from his balled up fists. Damn, I really needed to get him a bell. Speaking of bells, my phone rings again. Ugh, I need to shut that thing off. Ben stares him down before he finally answers.
“Yeah, well that’s for everyone else. I’m not leaving.”
“I’ll have security escort you out. She’s sick; there may be a bed over there but this isn’t a hotel. Have some respect.”
“You think I’m here to have sex with her?” Dr. Jim looks from me to back to Ben.
“From what I overheard, you were about to start the show.” These two are nose to nose now. Well, slightly angled. Dr. Jim is about one inch shorter than Ben’s height of six-four. Guess that answers the question of how tall he is. Nevertheless, they are squared off and neither one is backing down.
Since I can’t physically get between them, being tethered to the hospital bed and all, I speak as loudly as my sore throat will allow. “As much as I would love to see the start to the Italian/Viking war, would you two please back off. Dr. Jim, I am not going to be having sex with anyone. Ben, tell him.”
Ben stands there smugly for what feels like five minutes before he responds with a cheeky grin. “She’s not going to be having sex with you.”
“Ben! That is not what I said and you know it.” Right then my face goes pale. Oh shit, did I just inadvertently say I was not against having sex with my doctor? Fuuuuck.
Just as I am about to clarify, somehow, I hear Dr. Jim, “Listen Ben, no one is going to be having sex with her…” There’s a long, pregnant pause. My mind instantly adds to Dr. Jim’s sentence in wishful thinking “…but me”. Sadly he continues on without adding it. “Visiting hours are over. You can come back bright and early tomorrow morning at nine.”
