I also loved getting a chance to catch up with Ben and Gage from Heart Trouble and now that Xavier has burrowed his way under my skin, I’m anxious for the next installment of this new series because I’d love to know more about his story.
Please note that I voluntarily reviewed an advance copy of this book.

I have a special place in my heart for this book, especially as I got a chance to hold it close and be a part of it. That being said, onto the review.
Out of left field, author DJ Jamison left the newsroom of Ashe Sentinel and rolled into the city's hospital. We are reintroduced to Zane, who had been Physically attacked in by his stepfather in Heart Trouble (Ashe Sentinel Connections #6) and treated by the infallible Hot Doc, Paul Johnston.
From the instant these two met, I wanted more of them, age be damned. Paul, now divorced and trying to live life as an out man had lost his crush to another man, but he found something in the young man who presented in his ER. Zane was his second chance, and though Paul knew that doctor/patient relationship was forbidden, he could not help the way that he felt.
Weeks later, Zane was on the road to recovery and finding home with his best friend. Paul found this the best time to make his presence known. However, outside forces were determined to keep these two from one another, along with a professional disturbance that can destroy Paul's career and whatever spark is happening between the men.
Paul frustrated me at times. I understood his plight. Saving the job he loves or moving on with Zane. It would be hard for me also, giving my love for Nursing. Would I give it up for love? Would I sacrifice all that I had struggled and craved for someone I may not get in the end? In order to understand, you have to one click and get the full story. But I can say this, DJ Jamison always comes through in the end.
I voluntarily and honestly reviewed this book WITHOUT bias or persuasion from the author.
This setup gives the characters a chance to not only work through the expected age-gap issues (he’s too young for you, you still have your whole life ahead of you; he’s too old for you, you should stick with guys your own age—of course these things being brought up by people other than Paul and Zane themselves), but to also have a bit of role reversal thanks to their individual experiences. They both help guide each other on their individual journeys, while in the end sharing the journey together as a couple.
Paul and Zane are a bit awkward together at first, and the review Paul is under at work puts quite a bit of strain on both of them and their new relationship. When they are together, the chemistry sizzles—but the issues they face keep cropping up to leave doubts and interfere, even more so than their friends and family. Gage and Ben’s characters added quite a lot to the story, from their unconditional support of Zane to their disapproval of Zane and Paul’s relationship, to their eventual acceptance. Zane’s father was more difficult to deal with, not so much in regards to Zane and Paul being together, but just with the fact that Zane is gay. All of these things lent drama to the story—balanced out by the sweet, fun way Paul and Zane are when they are together.
I really enjoyed this story, and would recommend it to any M/M romance fan, especially if you like age gap romances. Bedside Manner gets a 4-star rating from me, and I look forward to reading more in this series. This story is for readers 18+ for adult language, M/M sexual content, and touching on some serious subject matter regarding coming out and Zane’s assault-which was handled quite well within the story.
