Twelve years too late …
Xavier James is shocked when he runs into the first man who ever broke his heart. His ex-boyfriend has only gotten sexier over the past decade, but Xavier isn’t about to go down that road again. When they cross paths at the hospital’s urgent care clinic, where Xavier is doing a student nursing rotation, it’s more difficult to dismiss the man. Thrown together by work and forced into close quarters, a visit to memory lane is incredibly tempting.
It’s never too late to start over …
Dr. Trent Cavendish made a huge mistake when he walked away from the love of his life at age 18. When his best friend suddenly dies 12 years later, it rattles Trent into seeing just how empty his life has become. Determined to go back to the moment he put himself on the path to ambition over happiness, he walks away from the OR and takes a temporary position in his hometown. It’s time to make amends to the man he left behind.
Oh, how things have changed …
Instead of the sweet but tame guy he left behind, Trent runs into a smoking-hot Xavier James dressed in bits of lace and silk at a gay nightclub. He never knew he had a fetish for a man in delicate clothing until now. His plan to earn Xavier’s forgiveness immediately shifts to lust, and love’s not far behind. But Xavier is wary of this new Trent Cavendish. The villain of his memories is considerate and kind, but Xavier wants to be more than a new goal to chase.
I love a good story with a special kink, and the sensuality and hotness of Xavier add an extra layer of awesome to this book. Urgent Care is the third story in the Hearts and Health series but can be read as a standalone. As you might have guessed, these stories revolve around medical professionals. One of the previous couples gets a mention and the other plays some fun role in the plot here. Those who read the previous book have already met Xavier briefly and now we get to know more about him and his past.
This is a very entertaining, sexy and thought provoking story about second chances, the importance of timing, family and priorities. It has a great flow, the writing style is gripping, there is enough action and lots of emotions to keep the pages turn on their own.
The story follows Trent and Xavier after their chance encounter in a night club, twelve years after their breakup right after their graduation from high school. Life has changed for both of them and the question is whether they have a place in each other’s lives and each other’s future or that boat had already sailed with their first separation.
The way these two form their new relationship, the way they reevaluate their past and their emotions, is very well built, has a great pace and some truly hot scenes along the way.
A gorgeous, biracial, muscular guy embracing his feminine side is wonderfully written here. Xav is hot and very sensual. He is also a great guy with a big heart whose family can count on him no matter what. When his first love comes back to his life he knows that things can go both ways and second chances are very tricky. Luckily the love is not lost forever… more like was just dormant for a decade. The reader has great fun watching these two waking up old feelings and enjoying getting to know each other again, understanding their past motivation and trying to find a way to make it work for their future.
This is a fun read with some hot lingerie, plenty of sizzling sexy-time and lots of great feels. Recommended.
