Dating Series, 2
Focused on her career, Dr. JJ Jones doesn't have time to date—and she certainly doesn't want to date the "player" of the ER, none other than her girlhood crush, Dr. Cruz Avery. JJ found out the hard way that romantic relationships in the work place don't mix forcing her to relocate back to Arizona and change jobs. She's determined to spend her free time enjoying her Harley, reading true-crime novels, and learning about the new community she lives in.
Dogged by the gorgeous Dr. Avery with his skillful hands, disarming smile, and hot lips, her resolve wavers. For now, she's having fun making his mission to date her down right impossible!
But damn if she wasn’t all prickly one minute and hot and yummy in his arms the next. His cock hardened and he shifted in his chair. Large almond-shaped green eyes, pink pouty lips, and that sexy belly button ring and tattoos. Cruz shook his head. JJ was definitely a mix of contradictions. She was all innocence and badass rolled into one. And smart.
None of his usual bullshit lines would work with her. So how was he going to get past her no-dating-a-co-worker rule and find out if they had the possibility of a real future together? Christ, she was making this entire dating thing impossible. He rubbed the tense muscles of his neck.
Sex two nights in a row doesn’t mean we are dating. Or in a relationship.
Her words looped over and over against his skull and were the other reason why he couldn’t concentrate on jack-shit today. What he needed was a plan. But what?
He sat up straighter in his leather chair. The kernel of an idea blossomed. What if she didn’t realize they were going out on dates? Yeah, baby. He liked the notion already. But he’d have to tread carefully. JJ was a clever girl. Cruz would just have to be one step ahead of her in order to make his plan work. And once she was hooked on him… He glanced at his reflection in the full-length mirror that hung on the back of his office door and pointed to himself. His lips curved into a perfect smile and he winked.
Who could resist this?

I decided to read this book because as someone who’s working in the medical field, it’s nice to be able to ponder if the situations shared in the book usually happens in reality.
JJ and Cruz have known each other since they were children. JJ came back to Arizona to start afresh. One thing she learned is to never let romance cross with work. But having Cruz in the same workplace won’t make it any easier. So can their relationship be possible or impossible?
JJ is a kick-ass E.R. doctor. I like her. I really felt for her. She came back from a slump and being in her situation is hard. I understand her reservations with Cruz although it’s undeniable she likes him.
On the other hand, Cruz is known to be a womanizer. When he sees JJ again after a long time, he imagines himself having a serious relationship with her. But it’s hard to convince JJ. Because of that, they have this push and pull relationship which became a bit tiring as the book went on. Despite that, Cruz is still persistent in pursuing JJ which made me love his character.
The book shifts from two POVs, JJ and Cruz’s. I usually like books that have the guy’s POV. I’m more into them and it’s such a good feeling to know what the guy is thinking. I just felt that the shifting is a bit confusing. I thought at first that the shifting happens every after each chapter but it’s not the case. One thing that made me finish the book is the twist that came in the latter part of the book.
If you want romance and a little bit of suspense, try this one out!

I've read all of Ms. Grieve's titles and this one did not disappoint! It was wonderful to find out how Doctor Cruz Avery and Doctor JJ Jones get themselves entangled. Loved the twist at the end, too. The only complaint I had was that I didn't want the story to end. I look forward to Ms. Grieve's next release so I can find out what happens next in this wonderful series of complex characters in the midst of heart stopping medical drama.
