The ultimate baby bombshell!
For delicious Dr. Guy Steele, life is all about flirting and never about forever! It's the only way to avoid discussing the painful issue of his infertility. So a fling with Candy Anastasi, the sexiest nurse in the hospital, is the perfect solution…right?
Candy's desperate to take her mind off her good-for-nothing ex—and six weeks of the best sex of her life is the ideal distraction! Until she realizes that she's fallen for Guy…and that she's pregnant–with twins! Could her double baby bombshell ultimately bind her to Guy forever?
Candy is a nurse in the ER. She’s getting over her recent fling with Gerry, a head nurse in the ER, and is looking forward to a vacation that she booked – she’ll leave in 2 weeks. In that time, however, she needs to work extra shifts to earn money and some of those shifts will be in the geriatric floor.
One day in the ER she meets Steele (as he refers to himself). His name is Dr. Guy Steele and he’s just a temporary doctor in the ER and geriatrics. There is an instant attraction between Steele and Candy and soon they’re going out for coffee and much, much more. The sex turns into feelings that neither expected to have for the other and neither of them quite knows what to do with it all.
When Candy finds out that she’s pregnant with Gerry’s twins she’s shocked and doesn’t quite know what to do – especially when a tragedy in her life strikes. She ends up pushing Steele away as she knows he can’t possibly want her any longer while she’s carrying another man’s babies. Steele is a different kind of man though and he doesn’t necessarily look at the twins as a bad thing – he just needs to convince Candy to keep him in her life.
This was a very sweet and cute romance. I really liked the relationship between Steele and Candy. They knew what they wanted and they went after it. I was a little upset at Candy for pushing Steele away after the revelation of the twins and the tragedy that’s revealed but I understood she was in a weird and difficult place. I thought Steele handled it really well and I loved his character.
There was a secondary character in this story that I loved as well and that was Macey Anderson. She was a patient on the geriatric floor and I just adored her personality. She added so much to this story and helped both Candy and Steele in their time of need. I also loved how Steele dealt with Macey’s personal family issues that were revealed. This part of the story was just such a nice addition!
If you want a very quick but delightful read then this is a great one to choose.
