OB-GYN Sam’s job at a new hospital gets off to a bad start when she accidentally insults Grant, her new boss, before her first day at work. When Sam has an idea to introduce doulas to the hospital to help low-income patients, she must work to get the hospital’s bigwigs on her side. She is forced to ask handsome, intelligent, and hard-to-read Grant for help but falls for him in the process. Wooldridge’s (The Bounce Back) new romance is smart, sexy, and forward-thinking. Jeanette Illidge narrates Sam, capturing her tenacity and tenderness as she navigates her work-life balance and boundaries. Woolridge uses inclusive language when talking about patients and includes a wide range of characters, which further enhances how the novel deploys its romance tropes. Grant’s emotional growth is noteworthy as he learns to vocalize his feelings and realizes that he can’t wait for others to read his mind.
VERDICT This slow-burn romance from an established author should appeal to readers who appreciate strong, well-developed characters and a thought-provoking story line. For fans of Farrah Rochon, Ali Hazelwood, and Kate Spencer.
