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 was a nice story to read. Dane has pretty much lived out of a suitcase for the last six years and is looking forward to finally putting down some roots when his boss needs to send him somewhere else, again. Carter has finally opened himself up to another person for them to leave him for their job again. They both need to find a way back to each other once Dane’s job is done.
This story was mostly flash backs to how Dane and Carter met and their budding relationship. I liked seeing how smitten they both were with each other and their desire to finally take a chance. Though we see most of this story through Dane’s eyes it is easy to see both of their emotions and know how much being separated hurts them. I loved seeing them finally come together again after they just missed each other after their year separation.
Cover art by Reese Dante is nice and gives good visuals of the character.
