Nora Bennett doesn’t need a man.
She is sure of this—except perhaps when it comes to the sexy stack of Aussie that is her ex-fling, Declan “Doc” Wellesley. He’s the one she can’t quite shake loose. And when her emotions go unexpectedly haywire after her best friend becomes a mother, her lingering connection with Doc becomes even harder to ignore.
Doc has a thorn in his paw when it comes to Nora. She’s the one that got away. The sex was hot, their chemistry off the charts, and he’s convinced there were—and still are—sparks of something deeper.
Even as Doc convinces a skittish Nora to give dating him another try, she confounds and confuses him every step of the way. One minute their connection is amazing, but then, Nora withdraws.
As Nora tries to shove Doc away once and for all, she tips her hand, revealing a dark secret. This forces her to realize there are only two options: face her past and embrace her man, or risk losing him for good
4.5 My Beauty stars
Doc sure is an entertaining read, from start to finish.
I laughed out loud so many times with the banter and off the cuff comments. Great characters and although I haven't read the first book in the series I now want to read Sophie and Fox's story too.
My first book by this author and it won't be my last, I followed the plot with ease and fell into Doc and Nora's story quickly.
Doc and Nora had a casual relationship until Doc started getting strong feelings for Sophie, Sophie is the female version of a playboy and doesn't get attached, she's a one night stand kind of girl, so Docs show of feelings had her ending it and running scared.
Months later it seems Sophie can't escape Doc as they are in the same friend circle so when both are forced together again as godparents for Sophie and Fox's baby's christening the flames are fanned again.
Sophie is a commitment-phoebe from a past experience and Doc treads on egg shells so he doesn't scare her off again.
"Nora Bennett is bad news. She's fireworks and candy, turpentine and rusty nails, vicious and sweet all rolled up into one woman"
Doc is so swoonworthy and patient with Nora and her hidden secrets that haunt her.
A great story and so hot, Doc and Nora had sizzling chemistry and the author balanced out the plot brilliantly.
Doc is hot, humorous has great characters and is definitely a series I would follow. Told in first person dual pov and leads to a hea.
