As an accomplished interior designer in San Francisco’s Bay Area, Zoë Jenkins is used to transforming empty spaces into masterpieces. She leaves little square footage in her personal life for anything outside of her thriving business and a renewed relationship with her twin brother. After a decade spent ripped apart by circumstance and an entire ocean’s distance, she depends on no one but him. Until a sexy surgeon walks into her life.
Although Zoë can’t deny her attraction to the charming and benevolent Morgan Drake, he’s on her mental list of everything she should avoid. Past experience taught Zoë that dating clients compromises business. Add a not-yet-dissolved marriage to the mix and Doctor Hottie is definitely Doctor Off-limits.
Dr. Morgan Drake is surprised at the undeniable chemistry he feels when he’s in the same room as Zoë. The strikingly beautiful and solitary designer he hired to fill his new-start, new-city home makes it abundantly clear there will never be anything between them. But twelve years of medical school breeds persistence. He sets out to persuade the pants off Zoë Jenkins and show her what her empty spaces are missing.
Intense passion and amazing sex have a way of masking secrets-secrets that unravel a dangerous web of fraud, corruption and conspiracy that turn Zoë’s quiet spaces into a world where nothing is as it seems. With her life on the line, the good doctor responsible for her fiercest betrayal might just be the only one worthy of her finest interior masterpiece-this time, of her heart.
Paging, Doctor Hottie! You loved McDreamy and McSteamy? Then come and check out Dr. Morgan Drake. He is kind, compassionate, selfless, honourable and unbelievably good-looking. Plus, he has a very good bedside manner, if you catch my drift ;) But more on that later. Let me introduce you to the leading lady, Zoë Jenkins. Strong, determined, and independent. Everything you want in a female protagonist. When she first meets Dr. Drake, there is an immediate attraction. However, past events have caused Zoë to impose certain rules. No dating clients. She will just decorate his home and that’s it. But the good doctor has other ideas. He is a determined man and has all the patience in the world. Plus, he always gets what he wants ;) and, right now, his sights are on Zoë.
"I usually get what I want." He smiles with a cute, boyish grin.
"And what? I'm the commodity you think you're going to have, Doctor Drake?" I retort in amusement.
"I think you're way too beautiful and classy a lady for me to ever think of you as a commodity."
Aw, what a charmer! The story alternates between Zoë and Morgan so we get to see his point of view, which is great! And if you’ve read Love, Lies, and the D.A, guess who appears? Jonathan and Jada! :) They are brilliant.
Now Dr. Drake is just finishing up his divorce, which gives Zoë even more reason for her to stay away from him. She doesn’t want to be his rebound. But little by little, the two of them break down their walls and reveal snippets of their past. While Zoë resists Dr. Hottie, her brother Zach is determined for her to allow the man into her life. He knows what she is missing because he has just found his perfect match. The brother and sister are adorable. They are so close and their bond is wonderful. I loved how he teased his sister.
“Hmm… getting regular injections yet?”
Lol! Cheeky that boy is I tell you ;) Just as things seem to be going well, tragedy strikes. It devastates Zoë and triggers ripples that eventually place her at risk. Dr. Drake is unbelievably understanding and compassionate. He sticks by Zoë. Even when she tries to push him away, he refuses to leave her alone in her time of need. For him, it becomes a pursuit of justice and truth. He needs to find out what went wrong and keep the woman he loves safe. The deeper the two of them look, the more tangled the web becomes. There are shocks and surprises around every corner.
“You’re going to cause me to have an accident.”
“You started it…”
“I’ve created a devil,” he laughs.
And the hotness that follows this car conversation, phew! ;) Let’s breathe for a minute… and oh my goodness! Rebecca Rohman uses the song Wicked Games! Oh, and what happens in that scene is wicked indeed! ;) Definitely think it's my favourite! Dr. Drake isn't just good at the wickedness, he is incredibly sweet. So considerate and loving. *sigh*
Rebecca Rohman’s writing is poignant and profound. It makes you feel incredible emotions for the characters. She always puts me through the emotional ringer. It is a testament to her writing that she is able to make me feel those intense emotions. As a reader, you become invested in the characters. Characters that become your friend, your family, and even your lover ;) But you feel this immense closeness to them and should something go wrong, your instincts kick in. You definitely want to run to their defence and fight for them. And that has everything to do with the writing. It is Rebecca’s elegant words that wash over you and call you into the world she conjures with each sentence she forms. There is drama, suspense, action, steamy moments, cute and tender scenes, and love. Everything you could possibly want in a good story. Block out a day, turn off your phone, and settle in for a remarkable journey to discover truth, pursue justice, and fall in love.
