Happy Monday! I’m gonna start your week off with a very sweet love story. It’s a short one but its one you won’t want to put down until you’ve turned the last page. I hope you all have a great week ahead and to see my full review as always keep reading after the book blurb.
Love, like life, is not without risk.
Veterinarian Vivian Dane has purchased her uncle’s practice in the tiny town of Wales, Missouri, where most residents still doubt her ability to treat their pets. But Viv is used to being considered less-worthy than her predecessors. After all, her parents are world-renowned wildlife vets, and most everyone is unimpressed she’s chosen to not follow directly in their footsteps. Now Connor, a patient’s owner, is hot for Viv, but clearly doesn’t think she’s dating material because he has a daughter…who he believes no woman is good enough for.
Being a perfect dad is EMT paramedic Connor’s life focus. He can’t seem to stay away from sexy Doctor Viv, but attraction is as far as he’ll ever let it go. His mother abandoned him, leaving him to be raised in the foster system, and then his wife abandoned both him and their daughter. He absolutely will not risk bringing another woman into his little girl’s life and having her feel the hurt of being left…again.
Forfeiting is easier than attempting and failing. So why does Viv feel compelled to prove she’s a sure bet for Connor and his daughter? Can Connor trust Viv–and himself–enough to play the possibilities?
Connor is the paramedic on a medevac helicopter. When he is called to a horrible accident that included a cattle truck he meets the new vet Vivian. Though when they meet they feel an instant connection they don’t know who each other is. After their initial meeting they are each struck by the question of finding out who the other is. Though Connor wants to know who the mystery woman from the accident is his dedication for his daughter is all-consuming. So, when his daughter’s pet skunk needs a vet his mystery is solved and his problems only begin. Connor fights his attraction to Viv and Viv feels the need to prove that she is perfect for him and his daughter. It becomes an ongoing tug of war between Connor’s feelings for Viv and Connor’s dedication to his daughter. Can Connor find a good balance or will a good woman slip through his fingers?
This was a sweet love story. I really liked Connor and Viv. I thought they were very likable. My favorite had to be Janna, Connor’s daughter. She was so fun and loveable. Though I really enjoyed the love story I got a bit frustrated with Connor’s constant negative reactions about anything that Viv would say. He was overly sensitive for most of the book. I also thought that it was a good move in adding in Viv’s parents and her relationship with them. It really gave her depth and an added intricacy. Overall, I thought this was a good story even if Connor was a tad bit annoying at times.
