Rebecca Underwood likes her life the way it is. Quiet. Plain. Predictable. For years she worked her tail off in medical school and finally achieved her ultimate goal of working in a private practice. She sees nothing but smooth sa,iling ahead of her. That is, until she finds herself having to deal with the one man who has the ability to send her quiet and plain world into a tail-spin.
Master mechanic R.J. Devlin specializes in restoring classic cars. He’s poured blood, sweat and tears into building his own auto shop from the ground up. For him, there’s nothing more satisfying than getting a healthy amount of grease under his nails…except a green-eyed red-head who could bring him to his knees faster than he can say Corvette. So when Rebecca Underwood brings her father’s classic car to him for restoration, he jumps at the opportunity—for more reasons than one. Rebecca has always loathed surrendering any kind of control, but she knows R.J. is the best at what he does.
But then everything she’s worked so hard for, her practice and her reputation as a pediatrician is shaken. And as her carefully controlled world spirals out of control, the threat of losing her medical license, and even her practice, pushes her to unfamiliar territory and a place where she has no control— the arms of R.J. Devlin.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Rebecca Underwood had worked hard her whole life. She worked hard at pleasing her parents, obtaining a medical degree and finally beginning work in a private practice in her hometown. Life should be perfect except she cannot forget about the one man she could not resist. R J Devlin had captured her heart as a teenager. She had fallen in love with him but after one night of passion R J simply walked away. Believing she was just another notch in his belt, Rebecca watched as R J went from one woman to another but she never stopped loving him. R J Devlin had quite a reputation with the ladies but he was only into casual hookups nothing serious because he couldn’t forget about the one woman that still held his heart, Rebecca. As her dad was nearing retirement, Rebecca and her mom asked R J to restore her dad’s prized possession. A 1967 Chevrolet Camaro. This brought Rebecca back into RJ’s life and he wasn’t going to let her leave. Rebecca had more problems to deal with at her medical office. Someone was writing excessive drug prescriptions to children and she wanted to figure out why and who was actually taking the medicine but finding the truth could cost her everything she had worked for. This was a really good book. I loved how the romance was mixed so well with the mystery of the medicine. The mystery involved not only Rebecca and RJ but several supporting characters that rounded out the story. I recommend this book to anyone looking for a sweet, suspenseful romance. I cannot wait to read more in this series. My review was provided for Sexy Ways of Reading.
I started writing back in 2004 and six years later self-published the third book I wrote. Two years after that I landed a contract with Grand Central Publishing.
Now I’m just chugging along, spitting out books faster than my kids can turn my living room into a disaster zone…
Actually, that’s not entirely true. I only wish it were true.
But in all seriousness, I write sassy and sexy contemporary romances for Forever Romance. My Trouble series is available online and wherever paperbacks are sold.
