Internship is always tough, but one in emergency medicine is downright grueling. The breakneck pace, combined with around the clock shifts, drains Tori Taggert during this first year after medical school. Her male peers outnumber her ten to one and target her flaws while maximizing the sexual tension. Just when she thinks she can no longer handle the pressure "like a man" she finds herself in the arms of a forbidden lover, Dr. Jack Forester.
As the Chief of Trauma Surgery, Jack helps Tori navigate a career in which she is learning to hold the lives of others in her hands. She feels safe and happy when with him, but wonders what he is hiding behind the flower bouquets and private dining excursions. Can she trust him? Can she trust herself? In the contest of logic versus love, can there ever be a winner?
The heart pumping drama and the gut wrenching emotions will make you feel like an integral member of the medical team. This is your all access pass behind the stethoscope, where a resident learns it is easier to break hearts than it is to mend them.
This book sounds from the very first opening chapter, like a group of teenagers "playing doctor". Cannot believe that the dialogue and narration are supposed to be taken seriously. Embarrassingly adolescent and just completely unexpected.
I could not listen past the third chapter. A romance with dialogue that is so "cute" and oh so high school like characters make for a novel that even an adolescent would find laughable. It's truly hard to take this book seriously and I am surprised that it is part of the audible offerings. The narrator is the perfect choice for this pathetic story. Almost sounds like a satire of one of the old fashioned penny novels that used to be sold for a dime back in the day and were, at best, a quick, formula constructed romance with little to offer but a way to kill a couple hours while traveling.
Don't waste your money or a credit. One of the worst I've blown my money on.
