Never a dull night in the ER for Dr. Jared Dean, especially when he sees the woman of his fantasies beating the crap out of the largest man he has ever seen, only to have her escape before he even gets to ask her name.
Kara realizes the gorgeous doc is now in danger of retribution from the Godfather wannabe, so she immediately assigns herself the arduous task of guarding the hard body of Dr. Dean until she can figure a way out of the mess.
Jared is only too happy to accommodate the woman of his dreams, even if he doesn't take her seriously. Anything to have her close at hand... and in his bed.
Jared must be one hell of a stressed man for his erotic dreams to be filled with armadillo suits and Vlassic pickle juice.
Our girl Kara has a Robin Hood thing going on. She's doing all the wrong things for all the right reasons. Still doesn't change the fact that it's wrong, mind you, and for that she's convinced herself she's a bad person, deserving of absolutely nothing good in life. Including the gentle and sweet Dr Dean.
I didn't love this one. And it's all Jared's fault. I can't stand guys like this in real life let alone in my fantasy filled romance books. Humor is one thing, but when you can't carry a simple conversation without cracking a joke, I begin to question one's maturity level. Seriousness is a hell of a lot sexier than comedy. DNF. 1 star.
