The playboy surgeon –
and the shy workaholic!

Dr. Krysta Simpson feels a connection with brooding Francisco Carvalho immediately. The ex-model turned surgeon is nothing like the cruel rumors would have her believe. And if she’s determined to use this temporary placement in stunning São Paulo to reset her priorities, she’s running out of time… Leaving one important question: will Francisco show her the pleasure she’s never experienced?

I received a copy of this book from Mills and Boon in return for an honest review.

My Thoughts…

A diverse location complex characters and well researched medical detail make this romance worth reading. The well-described setting and two easy to empathise main protagonists draw the reader into their story.

Krysta is a brilliant surgeon whose work is her life. Franciso is also a talented surgeon. His background looks and past attract more attention than his medical skills. Their attraction intensifies naturally in this gently paced romance. The cast of characters is believable and enhances the main romantic story.

The gentle romance overcomes the external and internal conflicts realistically to achieve the happy ever after the couple deserves.

I received a copy of this book from Mills and Boon via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

My Thoughts…

Joao, the richest man in the world, is not easy to like on first acquaintance. His domineering attitude towards his intelligent, irreplaceable Executive Assistant Saffron, doesn’t endear, but once you see things from his point of view, you realise he cannot let her go, for reasons much deeper than her faultless ability to run his professional life.

Saffron, is a woman with goals, professionally she has excelled, but she still needs to fulfil her target, of creating a family. She is easy to like, she has integrity and insight, she knows life with Joao has to end if she is to achieve her ideal life.

This is an emotionally charged story, full of contrasts, excess and glamour. The characters are complex, and believable, even though they inhabit a world few understand. The romance is slow to ignite, but passionate when it does. The conflicts are mostly internal, but are realistic, and threaten the high powered couples happily ever after.

The ending is romantic, and impossibly glamorous as fits the genre.
