But ultimately the whole thing just started to lose steam for me about 75% of the way through. They (of course) have some problems that threaten their happy ending and those was a bit lame, tbh. I think there just wasn't enough going on to be compelling for so many pages, and if it'd been condensed it would've kept my interest more. But it really is good writing and this looks like the author's first book, so I'll probably read another by her.
Ian's smart and sweet and competent and maybe a bit of a pushover when he should stand up for himself, a holdover from a childhood that left him in the wake of his parents' lives.
Petra's bright and driven and nervous that the big gamble she's taken with her professional life will fail, and after being the one all her life to take care of her family and friends, she doesn't know how to take care of herself (or trust her care to others) if disaster strikes.
They both take personal and professional journeys that are influenced by the other, though not dependent on the other for their outcomes - I love that, to see the characters as discrete individuals who learn to think differently because of each other but who achieve stuff on their own. And then, of course, there is the romance, where they are very much tied up in each other. Their initial attraction can't move forward from either side - she is his doctor, and he is in a relationship - but once those hurdles are (mostly) cleared their journeys of discovery towards each other are rapid, sometimes painful, and always deeply felt.
Lang writes smoothly and engagingly and with a ton of wit - the pages really turn! (Or, they would if I'd read a paper copy. But 'the screens really swipe!' doesn't sound right.) I'm excited to read much more by her.
