It’s New Year’s Eve, but obstetrician Dr. Tara Ross isn’t celebrating. After a catastrophic delivery, Tara, a workaholic who’s sleep deprived, and already stressed to the max, lapses into a post -traumatic memory loss. Wandering the streets of Manhattan’s Upper West Side, she is mistakenly swept up in a narcotics sting operation and lands in Jeffrey Corrigan’s precinct.
Divorced, but married to the job as a dedicated homicide squad commander, Detective Lieutenant Jeffrey Corrigan has his hands full chasing a sadistic drug czarina, and now murder suspect, with ties to his corrupt captain. The last thing he needs is another woman to complicate his life. That is until he encounters Tara in the precinct’s holding cell.
Unable to drive her home during a blizzard, he has no choice but to bring her to his house. As a temporary guest in his home, Tara and Jeffrey build a relationship they’d both like to make permanent. While enlisting the help of the precinct psychiatrist to restore Tara’s memory, he fears for her safety when threats mount against both their lives. The evil drug czarina and her cadre of corrupt cops will make him pay for nosing around in their business. They’ll start with Tara.

I review books and audiobooks, mostly mystery, police procedurals, That's about it!
the romance was boring as was the the whole mixed up story line, I just didn't get it, but hey, some people did as they loved it.
I only stuck with it because Valerie Gilbert narrated
Complicated intro, but maybe a little too techy for non-medicals. The partial amnesia business isn't badly done. The office and interpersonal stuff is not exactly what I'm used to, but I'm not NYPD. The rest of the story line, both the testosterone/estrogen stuff and the entwined case and management ring decidedly true. I always hate reading about incompetents and corrupt law enforcement, but, people are people. In spite of all of my whining, I was really into this book and feel that it deserves all 5 stars.
Valerie Gilbert was the audio performer, and I think that she managed the character differentiations very well. Occasionally a problem with the emo presentations, but not a big deal.
