This story starts out really cute as we find Alex sitting in the wrong room at the teaching Hospital where he is a Medical student. Lots of things run through Alex’s head and most all of them are about how shaggable the person he is looking at is. He makes it to his correct clinic only to be confronted by Dr. Jackson, who Alex describes as a cross between Brad Pitt and Hugh Jackman. Here we go back into Alex’s thoughts (can you imagine what he is thinking now?)
This book was a fun read that I sat down and read from beginning to end. The characters were engaging, witty and fun to learn about. The book provides a little bit of angst in it such as, where should the line be drawn between Teacher and Student and an altercation. This was a story of instant attraction for both characters and in this context it really worked. Was I with the story the whole time, no. I think a sex scene was a little off. What I didn’t like when I was reading the book changed when I sat back and thought of the book as a whole, it changed my view.
Get this book and read it for what it is. It is a fun book that is not meant to be taken too literally, it is one of those books you take to the beach or read poolside. A fun, entertaining and quirky Romance.
Book Description Alex is a ditzy but adorable final-year medical student, whose sex life seems doomed to fantasies about Hollywood hunks and abuse and misuse of the mirror in his bedroom. Then along comes blond and blue-eyed Will, all sinewy muscles, a gorgeous face and a top orthopaedic surgeon to boot, but equally hopeless when it comes to love. Their first encounter in his clinic is almost ruined by an embarrassing incident with a pair of disposable briefs, but mutual attraction prevails and brings them together.
When ghosts from Will’s past threaten their future together and all looks lost, Alex devises a plan to save Will’s reputation. But will love be enough to save the day and win Alex the man of his dreams? Or will he be doomed to eating his favorite apple crumble all alone-–with lashings of crème anglaise, of course.
