Forbidden to the Playboy Surgeon
by Fiona Lowe
Sparks fly from day one between playboy neurosurgeon Alistair North and his talented, sexy trainee surgeon Claire Mitchell. He’s on a mission to help überserious Claire relax, but his cavalier approach is driving her crazy.
Alistair is completely out of bounds, even if he is completely gorgeous— he’s her boss! But when he confronts Claire after a difficult surgery, desire overcomes reason. With secrets holding them both back, can they find a way to turn their forbidden passion into forever?
I have to confess Medical Romances don’t usually appeal to me. But this one has been giving me the eye for a while. So, taking a leap of faith, I bit the bullet and was pleasantly surprised.
The medical jargon was easy to digest and felt very real. Our hero and heroine are very likeable and as the plot developed I became invested in our characters, especially our heroine, who has some deep dark secrets of her own.
Our heroine, Claire Mitchell is a strong woman, who will be very relatable to a lot of readers. I think, the writing really embraced her struggle but highlighted her drive to succeed; even though the odds were against her in more ways than one, and this, I loved.
Our hero, Alistair North, is considered a playboy that didn’t care for the rules. But little do his friends and peers know, an event in his life has shattered him to the core and now, he has made himself a promise to live each day to the fullest. But in our heroine’s eyes, using this mantra to live his life, makes him selfish and uncaring of the consequences. But as the central romance develops, first impressions are squashed and barriers are overcome.
An enjoyable read. A solid 4/5 stars from me and a recommended read for any Medical Romance fan.
