Family practitioner Cary Rupert wants Nora Chilton so badly he can barely keep a hold of his stethoscope. Now he’s out to prove that when it comes to loving her forever, he’s the man for the job.
This was an incredibly cute and easy novella. A good read at the end of a long day and one that I thoroughly enjoyed. It started out a little tedious… but then it gained traction. And was actually quite cute. Not the kind of story that will get your pulse racing, but one that makes you smile that happy, secret little smile.
At the beginning, I found Cary a little bit annoying. He was a little too stalkerish for my liking. I really don’t understand this whole idea of “romance” that focuses on men who won’t take no and somehow that’s romantic. I mean, seriously… if I tell you no. It’s a no. There is nothing coy and playful about that for me. Yet, once the story unfolded, it kind of became a little less stalkerish. Mostly because Nora actually appreciates it and there is true love. Ya da. Ya da. It’s still somewhat problematic though when you think about it…
I did like Nora though. She was super sweet and innocent. A little too much, but it was a nice balance to the super painful, pushy persona of Cary. Mostly, I found a lot of this storyline problematic. But yet, there was something about it that still worked beautifully. Something I just enjoyed. Even if I was constantly questioning why…
