Let me just start by asking, could Dr. Ian be any more perfect?
- Good with kids? Yep
- Amazingly compassionate? 100%
- Dedicated to his job? No question
- Hot as hell beneath that white lab coat? Ah, yeah
Then add Devan - this chick is more screwed up than any character I remember reading. But unlike most, she has every reason to have those mile high, barb wired walls built around her. Only someone with superhuman patience, someone able to see beyond first impressions and only someone with a pure heart could get through them.
This book broke my heart but only because it was so damn beautiful!
Emotions were wrenched from you, some you weren't even sure you were capable of feeling. And in parts I found myself wanting to be there on the hospital floor fighting the bad guys with the sick superheroes of York's story.
Can't wait to find more of Elizabeth's work, because if it's anything like this I'm in for one hell of a ride!
Neither Devan or Ian are looking for a relationship. What happens when you discover that love is what you need? Will it be too late?
There were so many loveable characters in this book! Loved Ian and Devan!! The kids in the hospital were such fun, especially Davey.
Excellent read I would recommend this book to anyone!!!
There were a lot of plot issues going on in this book. I don’t want to say anything to give it away, but the drama factor was really interesting. Some issues came up at the very beginning. In fact, Ian, the male protagonist, is really stressing out about some things when Devon, the female protagonist, stumbles into his life. And the issue is continuous and keeps building until the very end. That’s just one issue in the story, but not the main focus.
The beginning of Ian and Devan’s relationship was really confusing. We see Ian is jaded and he doesn’t trust Devan, yet he takes her out to dinner and hits on her. Then, all of sudden, it’s a month later and they have spent all their time together. Then it’s six months later and same thing, yet we never see their actual progression. They just go from being attracted yet unattainable and not wanting to be attained to basically dating, though Devan is adamant they are just friends. Despite that, I wanted to keep reading and see where the story was going.
There was so much going on, and you could feel it building and building, waiting for the bubble to pop. Devon’s reactions to those bubbles popping were all over the place. When I thought she would blow up and go into her shell, she didn’t. Though she did do that for other issues.
I was really confused for a lot of the story. Things were mentioned then never picked up again. For example, at one point, Ian sees Devon had an ultrasound and contacts someone to find out what is going on. That person says it’s not Devon’s, and then it’s not mention again. This happened a few times in the story. Most importantly, you find out something big from their past that is very important, but barely touched upon. I would have liked to see more of that. Then there was a character who started out as a total sweetheart, then became a nasty, jealous whore, just to being a total sweetheart again. I didn’t understand that character arc at all. She felt disjointed.
The whole point of the story was a charity for the pediatric oncology department, yet we know nothing about the charity. How did they pull it off? What was the idea? How did they raise money? What did Devon do to gain attention and raise funds? We know nothing except that she did, but apparently, Ian did most of it. How? Sorry, I can’t tell you.
4.5 stars on character development. They felt alive and real to me. All of them had a different personality and background that came together beautifully.
Devon was a complicated character. She didn’t “adult,” as her sister always said. She could be immature when she lashed out, but I thought it was justified and funny. She did have a bad habit of running away, which hurt a lot of people. I didn’t like that. However, it made sense for her character, because she couldn’t “adult.”
Meanwhile, Devon was huge on trust, yet was always lying by omission. His character was much more confusing. The guy was kind of a jerk when it came to dealing with grownups, yet he was a big kid, overprotective, and loving when it came to his patients. Really complicated character.
Editing … What editing? This book had some serious mistakes that can’t even be overlooked because the development was horrible. I can usually overlook grammar, punctuation, and spelling errors when it’s a good story, which it was, yet there were so many places that needed to be developed more while other things were delved into a little too much that wasn’t necessary. Not to mention, the POVs were out of order in the timeline. I spent a lot of time shaking my head at the mistakes, which took away from the story.
Nevertheless, I read the book in two sittings. It was entertaining, I became invested in the characters, and I liked the mystery unfolding throughout the book.
