This book was good. It wasn't over the top exciting. It has the drama that we all seek in our reads but also something more, this author took on a task that brings light into ptsd without really going on about it till the final chapters and even then it wasn't full blown which surprised me. When touching on a subject such as ptsd I really did expect more knowledge but then again maybe it was just the right amount for this book.
Sam is hot lol
Happy Sexy Reading
-The author's writing is good enough to keep you reading even if it's formulaic.
- The characters are too much of caricatures to actually be worth investing in. Katie is too much of a ditzy, lovable GP that much of what she does is impractical to the point of incredulity. She cares so much about other people that she has no regard for herself, and by that I mean ZERO sense of self-preservation. Sam, on the other hand, is too much of a broken hero that at some point his tough guy act is just irritating. You can feel his front from fifty miles away I don't know that anybody would even be talking to this guy if he were a real person. And then he keeps pulling some caveman stunts that are so heavy-handed, it seemed like he was treating Katie like an idiot. Nothing romantic at all about that.
- The push and pull between these two is just ridiculous. I kept hoping Katie would grow a backbone and walk away from Sam's crap, but no such luck.
- I did not enjoy the footnotes explaining the meaning of some words. Don't get me wrong, I'm not against referencing in a novel, but they should have been a glossary or something. Nothing like closing a chapter with a footnote to make you feel like you're reading an article from a scientific journal. It was just not working for me.
RECOMMENDED FOR LIGHT READING IF YOU HAVE THE PATIENCE FOR MANY PAGES OF PUSH AND PULL BETWEEN THE LEADS THAT GOES ON TOO LONG.
Besides Sam and Katie, the stars of this romance, there's a cast of supporting characters that I found confusing at first, but they soon sorted themselves out.
This cast includes a stalker, a B-list celebrity, a whole village of eccentrics, and a circle of friends who star in other books of Susie's. And then there's a freaky-smart eight year-old named Benji. And though his part is small, it's worth reading the whole book just to get to know him and find out what he gets up to.
Back to the most important players: Sam and Katie. They're opposites, who, though no matter how hard they try, can't resist their attraction to one another.
Katie is almost too quirky and carefree to be the doctor she is. She loves everyone in town, especially the neediest. And they love her. She's the picture of cheer and optimism. Too bad she's a character in a book; I think I want her to be one of my best friends.
Sam is gritty and expects the worst. Traumatic experiences have made him an emotional cripple, walling himself off from love. He keeps his feelings for Katie locked up tight until he believes someone is threatening her.
That snaps the lock, and though he tries to keep the lid on those feelings, they escape in unpredictable bursts and then he tries to shove them back down again.
I'll let you find out on your own if Katie can help him, or if he stays behind the bars of his own past.
Katie and Sam have their story...and boy do they have a story.
Sam is so very damaged by his childhood and military career, Katie is a breath of fresh air with secrets of her own.
The collide, come together, break apart and try to reach for HEA.
Get ready for another emotional ride from Susie Tate!
This is my first novel from Tate and it will not be my last. The book is written from an UK perspective with UK jargon (also a first for me) and I found this somewhat troublesome yet interesting. I become intrigued by the jargon, but I hated how I had to go to the end of the chapter to know what the meaning of the slang. The characters were all likable, but there was an overwhelming amount of characters in this book.
Sam just came from the Special Forces and still had issues that he needed to work out, whiles Katie was just a bucket of butterflies and rainbows; which made them polar opposites of each other but they found attraction with each other.
