Can Elijah show Melissa he is exactly what the doctor ordered?
Dr. Elijah Grayson isn’t looking forward to presenting at a medical conference. Until a chance meeting provides this cardiothoracic surgeon with the adventure he’s looking for. Spending the week exploring a picturesque French Caribbean island with a beautiful, smart, and intriguing woman reintroduces Elijah to emotions he hasn’t felt in a long time—if ever. Still, navigating a new long-distance relationship and a demanding career is challenging, but he will do anything for the woman who captured his heart.
Melissa Gaines hasn’t stopped thinking about the sexy doctor who helped her check off items on her island bucket list. However, when a job opportunity in a new city brings her face-to-face with Elijah again, Melissa must decide if her deep-rooted fears—thanks to a devastating breakup—outweigh her growing feelings for the handsome surgeon. And maybe he’s the prescription she needs to liven up her life.
I love that our lead characters were older. We get a lot of stories about people finding love in their 20s, which are great. However, that doesn’t happen for everyone, so I loved that our characters have lived a little. They’ve gone through some things. It was nice seeing love blossom between people on the 35+ side and their chemistry on point. I enjoyed watching them build something through spending time and just vibing, and that the focus wasn’t completely on the sexual chemistry. This was a first for me by the author, but I’m definitely adding her to my list so I can explore more of her work.
