Patients are dying at Washington Memorial Hospital and no one knows why. When Nurse Chloe Bennett finds herself in the middle of yet another Code Blue, she questions the unexplained deaths. Dr. Brad Markson is a world renowned cardiac surgeon who is confident, brilliant, and sinfully sexy. He does not tolerate losing patients. When his patient suddenly dies, he looks for answers.
The two work together to unravel the mysterious events surrounding the deaths, and soon find themselves fighting for their lives in a fast paced, erotic thriller. When Chloe is accused of the murders, she is surprised to find she has an ally in gorgeous Dr. Markson. Shy, sweet, Chloe is unable to resist his wickedly sexy smile. His passionate kisses ignite her body, and his mere touch induces shivering pleasure. But she doesn't know if she’s ready to give away her heart after her traumatic past, and Brad is battling career demons of his own. Can the two learn to trust in each other? Will they live long enough to surrender to their love, or will they fall victim to their fears and lose everything?
It's no secret that I am a fan of Lisa Eugene's work. This book does not change that fact. Chole is a beautiful woman who doesn't feel like she has any worth, thanks to a jerk who left her at the altar. Brad is a playboy who doesn't want to settle down for fear of having to give up his career as he knows it. When they meet, things don't go well. Once Brad figures out that Chloe is just as curious about the things happening with his patients as he is, he looks at her differently. These two are a great couple! I also fell in love with Brad's secretary, Bea, and I hope that she will make an appearance in another book. I continue to be amazed by Lisa's work and I can't wait to read her next book! 5 out of 5!
His open palm landed hard on her bare buttocks and she gasped with the shock of it, the sting racing hot through her body. She had no time to voice a complaint because he drove impossibly deep and undiluted pleasure chased the pain, causing her to arch her back and sink her nails into the corded muscle of his thigh. Her lips parted with a long saturated moan and she squeezed her eyes shut. "You don’t listen very well, do you?" he rasped against her ear. "You seem to have a fondness for disobedience."
Lisa Eugene lives on Long Island, NY with her husband and three rambunctious kids. She's been a nurse for over twenty years and is still practicing. Between juggling a full time job and being a soccer mom, she enjoys a good romance.
