Not one of my favorites from the author, but the main reason this isn’t getting a higher rating from me is that the blurb gives away the ENTIRE plot. If something happens 75% of the way into a book, it really shouldn’t be in the blurb. Here I was expecting a one night stand/accidental pregnancy romance between coworkers/her best friend’s brother, and that is SO not the vibe. This is much more a fling to more/miscommunication romance, with plenty of heat and friction. I’m a big fan of Saman’s writing, so there’s a lot to love about the story. I love that our hero falls first, I loved the forbidden feel and sexual tension, and I loved how it ties into the series while still feeling like a standalone. But I didn’t love the constant miscommunication, and the heroine never really won me over.
The story follows Grace, a woman who has just gotten out of a long-term relationship. Grace’s cheating ex has left her with doubts about her self-worth, and she wants to feel desired again. So when she unexpectedly finds herself knocking on her coworker’s door – the brother of her best friend – looking for a place to stay, Grace isn’t sure what to think. Carter is a playboy who has never showed interest before, but suddenly he seems to be hinting at his attraction. As the two grow closer while living and working together, it becomes impossible to deny the truth: Carter wants her. Carter has wanted Grace for over a year, but he knows he’s got to be careful about crossing the line too soon – Grace just got out of a relationship, and becoming her rebound could extinguish any hope they have of a future.
We met both Grace and Carter in the first book in this series, and I was definitely intrigued by their dynamic. They work closely together at a hospital, and I liked the inclusion of the medical field and also Grace’s epilepsy. It added a unique touch to the story. I also liked that Carter starts the book with strong feelings – it’s always great when a hero has been pining for the heroine, but Carter is pretty dumb about how he handles things, lol. The level of miscommunication was really frustrating to me, and I hated that Grace couldn’t look beyond her assumptions that he’d only be interested in a fling. I also didn’t love the focus on how Grace hasn’t been properly banged and how Carter is such a playboy (when he’s been pining for her), but that’s just personal preference. They’re definitely sexy together, and there’s some solid steam in the back half. This probably would’ve been a low 4-star read for me had the blurb not given away every surprise in the book. That took a lot of the fun out of it for me, so I’m not able to offer a higher rating. I’m looking forward to more from the series, and there are still some mysterious brothers whose stories I’d like to read.
He’s my best friend’s older brother. My boss. And now my new roommate…
In the hospital, death always comes in threes. Apparently, so do mistakes.
Mistake number one? My fiancé, who I just learned is cheating on me. So much for being the strong, in control doctor who’s always on top of her game…
Mistake number two? Knocking on the wrong door.
The door I thought still belonged to my best friend now belongs to his older brother, my obnoxious, overly cocky, gorgeous-as-sin attending physician, Carter Fritz.
The billionaire playboy gives me a place to stay, and a shoulder to cry on. But when he makes me feel seen for the first time in I don’t even know how long, I tell myself I don’t regret what was easily the hottest, most earth-shattering night of my life.
That is until mistake number three comes along… and I’m staring down at a stick with two pink lines.
Having a baby at this stage of my residency could cost me everything I’ve worked so hard to build.
But Carter? He’s undeterred. He doesn’t just want more; he wants it ALL.
But what happens if following my heart turns out to be my biggest mistake of all?

I’ve been dreading this for a year.
Okay, that’s a lie. I’ve been dreading this reunion since we graduated high school ten years ago.
So why am I here, standing outside the door like the eternal wallflower I am?
I’d say it’s because my younger sister browbeat me into it, but the truth is, I’m tired of being a nobody. Of never taking a risk with myself and my life.
And…well…maybe I’m also hoping to see him.
The tall, insanely gorgeous man walking my way now. Oliver Fritz is regarded as one Boston’s sexiest doctors. I know him as the former god of our school. The one every girl wanted, and every guy wanted to be.
