Delaney Blair loves her job at Echo Lake’s Mercy Hospital, where she’s developed a reputation for being smart, fair, and driven. When she’s assigned to cut funding, she has to temporarily relocate her office, put on borrowed scrubs, and go toe-to-toe with Dr. Joshua Mackenzie, the interim head of the pediatrics department. His killer smile and rock-star body are distractions Delaney could do without, but she’s determined to stay focused while she brings his budget into line.
It’s not working.
Beloved by his colleagues and patients alike, Josh is too busy caring for sick kids to talk numbers with the sexy, stiletto-clad Delaney. Every time they talk business, tensions run high…but so does a powerful attraction neither of them can ignore. When an emergency brings Mercy to its knees, Delaney and Josh must work together to save lives. But can they also find a way into each other’s hearts?

This is a lovely story about starting over and trust. The characters are very well defined and the writing is very easy. I cannot say there was something I did not like. Delaney and Josh start their relationship at a normal pace and nothing feels rush or random.
Their professional relationship seems to be in the way for any more than that. They try to rezist their attraction but life has a way of setting the right course to things. If Delaney was afraid to step onto the Pediatrics section of the Hospital, Josh gave her a strong reason. The only way to save the department from budget cuts is to spend time on the foor and actually undertand where all the money goes. She connects with the children, while beiing reminded of her own past.
Josh has to get over a failled relationship. He is 100% dedicared to his job, since he doesn’t have a reason to baance personal and professional. When Delaney steps into his office, his life changes forever.
The ending comes as a consequence of giving into their emotions without fully knowing eachother. Will Josh be able to get over his fear of treason? Will he be able to have faith in Laney’s feelings for him and her intentions? This you will have to find out by reading the book!
USA Today bestselling author Maggie McGinnis is a Golden Heart Finalist who lives in New England, vastly outnumbered by both children and cats. She writes sweet romances set in Montana and Vermont, and feels extremely fortunate that through her books, she gets to fall in love every single day. She’s a sucker for romantic comedies, popcorn, and the perfect green pen, and if she wasn’t an author, she’d totally be rocking a Nashville club in her pink cowgirl boots. It’s probably good that she embraced the author thing, because her singing skills are better suited to the shower, and really? Pink cowgirl boots?
