First off, only the first 55% of the book IS ACTUALLY THE BOOK. Then there is a 4-chapter preview of Part 2. Then there's a 4-chapter preview of some other book by the author. REALLY? HALF of the book I paid for is the actual book? I'm already not a huge fan of serials, but I can live with them, and I took a chance on this one. But the author REALLy disappointed me with this one. This 170-page book is actually more like 90 pages, plus excerpts.
I found the writing extremely difficult to read. I can forgive a few typos, but the author should have hired a copy editor, a proofreader, or just a regular developmental editor. The sentence structure was odd enough in a few places that I struggled to actually understand what I was reading. The dialogue was stunted and unnatural. The doctors, who should be educated, spoke like teenagers.
Not a single character has personality. The heroine, Charity, bored me to tears. The hero, Elijah, wasn't the least bit interesting (Oh, I'm sorry! He has an accent! All is forgiven!). I couldn't find it in myself to care a bit about a single character. In fact, I wanted to hit Charity upside the head the first time she talks to Elijah over the phone. She says, "Hi, Elijah. I'm Charity." And then she berates herself for flirting. Honey, that is not flirting. That is called basic manners.
It felt like the author watched a couple seasons of Grey's Anatomy and then decided she wanted to write a book set in a hospital with hot doctors. And then she didn't research a single thing. A nurse calls Elijah's tattoo a "medical symbol." A single Google search would have let you know that it's called a Caduceus. I also noticed several HIPAA violations while characters were talking amongst themselves. Medical-related phrases were used incorrectly in several spots, to the point that it seemed like the author was just tossing them in to make it seem like she knew what she was talking about.
Basically, the whole book was a hot mess. I couldn't even finish the 90 pages of story because I wanted to throw it across the room within about 10. This book was SUCH a waste of time. I think the story itself has a lot of potential, but would require a lot of work from the author, including some heavy editing.
This is the first in a four-part serial romance that is short but satisfyingly sweet. The loss of her mother, the strained relationship with her father and the budding romance between her and the resident Chief was told in a comfortable, conversational writing style. I couldn’t help but feel for Charity as she struggled with the career choice she made while still seeking her Dad’s approval. Despite her success in her new career choice, she still felt the sting of his disapproval. Being attracted to her Dad’s colleague brought another dimension to an already complicated situation. Could she risk a relationship with another doctor – one whose schedule was as busy – if not busier – than her own father’s? Hearing about his many romantic exploits at the hospital didn’t help either. An interesting end to part one has a medical emergency butting into their romantic evening. Am looking forward to the next in the series!
