Erin Coffey has been a nurse for years, but nothing’s prepared her for the physical and emotional demands of her new position. Needing to move closer to her dysfunctional family, she takes a dangerous job at Larkhaven Psychiatric Hospital, where she quickly learns that she needs protection—and she meets the strong, over-confident coworker who’s more than willing to provide it.
Kelly Robak is the type of guy that Erin has sworn she’d never get involved with. She’s seen firsthand, via her mess of a sister, what chaos guys like him can bring into a woman’s life. But she finds herself drawn to him anyway, even when he shows up at her door, not eager to take no for an answer.
What Erin finds even more shocking than Kelly’s indecent proposal is how much she enjoys submitting to his every command. But he can’t play the tough guy indefinitely. If they want to have more than just an affair, both will have to open up and reveal what they truly need.
This book got 4.5 stars from me because not only is this book HOT, but the writing is off the chart! I read a lot of new adult books because I like them for the easy read and the sexy factor. That said, I don't expect a lot of substance out of them. Cara McKenna proved me waaaay wrong on that account!
Erin and Kelly leaped off the pages with their witty banter, real life psychiatric ward situations, and the deepness of their pasts. This book was much more than your typical new adult formula book. If you want to read about real people, this is the book for you. My only qualm with this novel is that a lot happened over a 3-week period. Although their relationship didn't feel rushed to me, you must be able to believe that they fell for each other within 3 weeks. Other than that, I am running out to buy another of Cara McKenna's novels!
