Good story, original and unpredictable!
This was a good story about a girl, Amber Gibbons, who goes to a physical therapy clinic for a broken femur, which is the largest bone in the human body and pretty difficult to break. She gets the Doctor instead of one of the regular physical therapists because they are short on staff that day and the Doctor, Brent Lofthouse, is attracted to Amber but also wonders about her injury which she says was caused in an auto accident. Though after looking at her X-rays and scans, Brent thinks it could only have been caused in some sort of fall.
Brent has Amber schedule future therapy visits with him and tries to question her further about what happened to her leg. Brent even gives her his cell number and flirts with her in text messages and tries to get more information from her but she shuts him down until one night when she feels in danger and calls him for help.
Amber’s Father hurt her and she needs Brent to help her, which Brent steps up to do. I like the story because it is unpredictable Ambers father is rich from finding oil in Texas and wants to get richer. Brent comes from a very wealthy old money family in Virginia. It is crazy to see some of the things they do.
Also some parts of the book just don’t make sense to me. Like the first time Amber goes to Brent for help. She explains that her Dad was the one that hurt her and why. He says yes he will help her, yet instead of saying she can stay with him, he brings her back home to her Dads place. I don’t get that. It isn’t like she is under age.
Also when he does start helping her and takes her to his family home, her Dad goes to the press and says Brent kidnapped her and that Brent was her doctor so it is unethical. Brent tell his Mother he will go to the press and clear things up, but his mother says that will make things worse and bring more attention to their family. I don’t understand why that would be bad when Ambers father is already bringing so much bad attention. They could just have Amber say that her Father abused her and Brent is protecting her and that would be that. The focus would go to Mr. Gibbons.
Anyway, things don’t always make perfect sense in books and in movies so we have to just go with the flow sometimes. And overall I enjoyed this book. The romance between Brent and Amber was steamy and not insta-Love, they took their time moving up to from attraction to saying those three little words. I think they could have solved some of Ambers problems by getting married themselves but the fact that they didn’t just jump into a quickie marriage just to foil Ambers father was a good thing.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
