From the Back Cover

LEAVING AN IMPERFECT PAST... Monica Gardner is starting over. The brokenhearted St. Louis native has nothing left at home any longer: her future is being an ER doctor at a New Orleans hospital. Her first day makes for a bumpy start as she continually runs into handsome but irascible Dr. Elijah Holmes--a man who could make her change her mind about finding true love.
FOR NEW EXPECTATIONS For years, Dr. Eli Holmes has been living up to his own high expectations--and is burning himself out in the process. The only time this "Super Doc" ob-gyn slows down is to notice the beautiful eyes of a newcomer, Dr. Gardner. He's pleased to know that she's more than just a pretty face, she's also an ace physician. When they work together, sparks fly. But with both Monica and Eli trying to hard not to fall in love, they realize they can't resist this affair of the heart.

I am a huge romance fan but am very choosy about the authors that I read because I'm not a big fan of the more er, 'graphic' novels and prefer a great storyline any day.

Deliver Me, by Farrah Rochon is exactly the kind of book I look for: Witty, fun and interesting with multiple characters to relate to (rather than just the hero and heroine). Deliver Me kept me up way past my 'bed time' (as someone who gets up at 5am daily this is a true measure of a good book for me). The more sexual scenes were also tastefully written so I wasn't blushing every 10 pages.

I give this book an A+ and I can't wait for the next one!

Dr. Monica Gardner leaves her cheating fiance and never-satisfied parents behind in St. Louis to take a job at a hospital in post-Katrina New Orleans. Dr. Eli Holmes, known as "Super Doc" at the same hospital, is not so super outside its doors--his policy is to dump every girlfriend after four weeks and to never date doctors. The two get off to a rocky start, but must find a way to work together to save a crucial hospital program that provides prenatal care for women who can't afford it. Can Monica learn to trust, and can Eli break his rules for the right woman?

"Deliver Me" delivers a satisfying, uncontrived love story with many laugh-out-loud moments. In addition to the two likeable main characters, the author treats us to many appealing side characters: Eli's two boisterous brothers, his matchmaking mother, Monica's fun-loving and loyal best friend, and a couple (Eli's patients) whose marriage may fail because of the wife's secret. The beautiful recovering city of New Orleans is almost a character in itself. Don't miss this debut novel by Farrah Rochon!

NOTE: The cover may be gorgeous, but its dark, mysterious, and even dangerous feel in no way conveys the mood of the book. This is a happy book about two good and dedicated doctors who put all their efforts into their careers and need to learn to find satisfaction in their personal lives as well.

Unlike the featured negative reviewer, I DID finish this novel, and I regret to say that it was most unsatisfying, generating one of my only one star reviews. The characters seemed to substitute physical attraction for any meaningful connection(and their carnal interactions left nothing to the imagination). Both doctors were shallow and self centered, and the conflict between them was resolved without sufficient motivation. Additionally, there was a bizarre and somewhat gratuitous subplot involving a bipolar patient. This storyline was nonessential to the plot;I kept waiting for it to be integrated in substantive way, but it really wasn't, so I was left wondering why the author and editor included it in the finished work. I wanted to like this novel but was disappointed.

So....the book was decent. It was a good read that I sincerely enjoy. However I was thoroughly upset with the cover of the book. The book cover was leading in the fact the main characters were white but in reality they are African-American! Why put a white person on the front of the book if your main characters are black!? I think it's wrong and discriminatory. What kind of message are you sending to other races...that only white covers sell books. I'm black and I find it disturbing. This is why I give this book a 2/5!!!! The author and publication should be ashamed of themselves!

UPDATE:
So I looked into the other 2 books of the series and am surprised to see that they display African-American men on the front cover. Correct advertising! Why not do it for this one then???

Maybe I didn't give this story enough of a chance because I did stop reading. The heroine comes to town as a new doctor. She seems to have a chip on her shoulder and pissed at the world. He is a good OB dr., handsome, successful, etc. He goes after her with both barrels blazing. WHY? certainly not because of her personality, the only thing I could see is because she was beautiful. Pretty is as pretty does!! She can't even be half way civil towards him because she is so ATTRACTED to him. What? are they 10? I found that I was not enjoying the story AT ALL, I just kept trying to figure out WHY he kept trying.

Then a side story was a young couple devoted to one another but she treats him like dirt. She has bi-polar and hasn't told him. Don't you think on3\e would wonder what was going on and find out? I found that side story just too depressing. He kills himself trying and she treats him like something on her shoe! Get real.

This story just didn't do it for me. Too depressing. I like to feel good about the story I am reading and I found this one just pulled me down. I didn't care for it.

The female lead strives to prove herself through organizing a fund raiser party - even though she is an excellent doctor. What? She wants to be valued for her party skills not her skills saving lives in the emergency room? He, although a gifted doctor, sleeps around indiscriminately. He shows little respect for women other than potential bed partners. Don't waste your time. I'm sorry I read thirty pages.

This is the type of book that leaves me wanting more! The characters are well drawn, interesting and the type of people I'd want as my friends in real life. I was able to see, feel and understand why Monica Gardner and Elijah Holmes fell in love with each other, and I had such a good time watching it happen. As a health care professional I found their world to be completely believable; it's rare to find someone who isn't a doctor truly understand the crazy schedule and long hours that go with the job. The author did a pretty good job with the medical lingo, too!

I won't go into the details of the story - the synopsis here does a better job than I could. But I do want to add that the location (post-Katrina New Orleans) was like another character in the story. The author's love for the city and its people is evident in every chapter.

The only reason this book gets 4 stars instead of 5 is that it was over too quickly. I wanted to see more of Eli and Monica! Hopefully I will, when the other Holmes brothers get their own happily ever afters.
