I received this book from the author for exchange of an honest review.
What a knock out of a book! From the first page until the last I was hooked. Dr. Siena Carr was a 26 year old well established ER doctor. She was born into wealth and was used to the finer way of life. From her designer clothes, fancy car, finer meals, upscale boyfriends, Ivy League college, and even her name sake (Siena, Italy), this Dr. was the image of a snob. She left the east coast for San Francisco in order to establish herself away from her family. Dr. Carr had recently broken up with another well established Dr. (surprise – I think not). Imagine her surprise, when she falls for Tommy Raines aka the Juggernaut who happened to stumble in her ER with a nasty cut.
Tommy is everything that Siena is not. His wardrobe choice is jeans and hoodies. He prefers grilled cheese over a Panini. He even dropped out of college to help take care of his sick mother. One says that opposites attract, and that is what happened to this couple. Tommy often calls Siena a snob (which did get old) but begins to change to make her happy. The Juggernaut doesn’t have a problem with changing in order for Siena to be happy. However, his breaking point occurs when Siena refuses to watch him fight in one of the most important matches of his career. Siena prefers sparring with him under the sheets rather than watching him knock out or injure another man. She takes her oath as a doctor to the extreme.
During the first half of this book, this reader had a problem with Siena. She was too prim and proper and made comments to Tommy at every turn on how he should act, what to wear, and even what to eat. However, Ms. Fazzi included a valuable life lesson, which made this reader see both Siena’s and Tommy’s POV. Neither Siena nor Tommy were trying to change the other but wanted to make some changes to make each other happy.
For such a short book, the storyline was a major punch. From the writing style, to the character development, I was impressed with this new author to me. I will definitely read more of Ms. Fazzi’s book and appreciate her reaching out to me. I would love to see this book become a trilogy or a series to see where Tommy’s and Siena’s life takes them.
