Dane McCormick’s job negotiating leases and building out furnished office suites takes him all over the country. He stays until the job is done—and then he moves on. As satisfying as the job is, it leaves him no place to call home and no chance to build a personal life. After arriving in Greenville, South Carolina, for a job, a severe stomach virus knocks Dane for a loop. He finds a local urgent care clinic… and a tall, dark, and handsome doctor who goes well above and beyond his duties to treat Dane. The doctor’s bedside manner makes Dane forget all about his stomach flu.

Carter Baldridge has dedicated his life to caring for others. Since graduating from medical school, he has spent all his time and energy building his urgent care business. But the morning he steps into his examining room and sees Dane McCormick on the table, he realizes it might be time to devote some attention to a part of life he has neglected. The spark is there, but so is a major obstacle in the form of Dane’s peripatetic lifestyle and a bad experience in Carter’s past. Both have to decide if the risk is worth the reward.

  • The idea of a career building out custom offices for clients is interesting - a bit of interior design, a bit of construction

Dislikes

  • How it turns out that the prologue takes place in the future - after the beginning of the book; I hate this and it's why I usually skip prologues altogether*
  • …but I don't want to stick around to see it
  • Dane started the entire relationship on a lie**
  • Bill***

Content Warnings

^Both characters are clothed on the cover, so I guess that’s a plus
__________

*It pisses me off when authors use excerpts for prologues because they’re spoiling their own book and don’t seem to care.
__________

**Dane promised Carter he wouldn’t choose his career over their relationship, and although they’ve only been together 4 months, it means the relationship was started on a lie. He broke Carter’s heart when he could have just told the truth and not started the relationship at all. Good going, dude.
__________

***Dane’s best friend Bill seems A-OK with asking Dane to pick up his life to move wherever, and Dane goes because he’s so grateful to Bill for the life he has. I’m not sure what kind of friend Bill is to shuffle Dane around so much that he can’t be in one place long enough to have a quality relationship.
