Every time I get a new Rebecca Rohman book I get this excited yet scared feeling. Excited because I love Rebecca's writing, but scared because her writing is intense and heart stopping. The Painful Side of Love is everything I love about Rebecca's writing in a stunning novella.
Life and love is never easy, but having that special someone to stand by you through the tough times is significant. Through the ups and downs Morgan and Zoë has been a strong team, but the lastest down has Morgan reeling and Zoë left alone to pick up the pieces. Can Zoë find away to bring Morgan back from the brink before things get any for precarious? Are will Zoë be facing a life on her own?
I seriously couldn't put this down. The intense drama pulls you in, grips your heart, and tugs at your emotions. Reasons behind Morgan's recent mood is heart-wrenching to say the least. I can't image how I would have acted in his position. What I loved was Zoë's perseverance. They way she strives to keep her life together, safe, and loved is her important to her. Her child, her life, her marriage has always comes first and now is no different. She's a very strong woman that I admire.
Morgan's actions was costly, but in the end he will always be there for his family. He's a man of honor and has a heart of gold. He stands up for what is right, even if it makes him look bad. He's a man you can't help but love.
Over all I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It's a phenomenal story that keeps the reader enthralled until the extraordinary end.
Love M.D. Book #1
As an accomplished interior designer in San Francisco’s Bay Area, Zoë Jenkins is used to transforming empty spaces into masterpieces. She leaves little square footage in her personal life for anything outside of her thriving business and a renewed relationship with her twin brother. After a decade spent ripped apart by circumstance and an entire ocean’s distance, she depends on no one but him. Until a sexy surgeon walks into her life.
Although Zoë can’t deny her attraction to the charming and benevolent Morgan Drake, he’s on her mental list of everything she should avoid. Past experience taught Zoë that dating clients compromises business. Add a not-yet-dissolved marriage to the mix and Doctor Hottie is definitely Doctor Off-limits.
Dr. Morgan Drake is surprised at the undeniable chemistry he feels when he’s in the same room as Zoë. The strikingly beautiful and solitary designer he hired to fill his new-start, new-city home makes it abundantly clear there will never be anything between them. But twelve years of medical school breeds persistence. He sets out to persuade the pants off Zoë Jenkins and show her what her empty spaces are missing.
Intense passion and amazing sex have a way of masking secrets-secrets that unravel a dangerous web of fraud, corruption, and conspiracy that turn Zoë’s quiet spaces into a world where nothing is as it seems. With her life on the line, the good doctor responsible for her fiercest betrayal might just be the only one worthy of her finest interior masterpiece-this time, of her heart.
