Good Friday all , hope you all are ready for the weekend . Summer is going by so fast I can't believe we are in August already. So if you are looking to add to your summer reading list this could be the book for you. BROKEN LION by Devon Hartford
Bestselling author Devon Hartford brings you another scorching hot and scandalous standalone romance.
BROKEN MEN BREAK HEARTS
The night the EMTs wheeled Lion Maxwell into my Emergency Room turned my life upside down. Although he was bloody and battered from defending his title as the reigning cruiserweight champion of Mixed Martial Arts, his cocky grin lit up the room.
And every cell in my body.
Our fiery chemistry was off the charts.
The ER staff sensed it.
Lion’s entourage and his drooling groupies sensed it too.
If the two of us had been alone, I might have done something entirely unprofessional and completely unethical right there in the exam room. But I was his attending physician. A sexual or romantic relationship with him was grounds for my termination or worse, revoking my medical license. I wouldn’t risk my career on a moment of passion. It didn’t stop that arrogant caveman from doing everything he could to get me into his hospital bed.
After denying his advances for weeks, the last thing I expected were the wild nights he would be spending in my bed.
It was supposed to be nothing more than a secret fling.
I knew it couldn’t last.
He was still my patient.
What we were doing was wrong.
If anyone found out, it could ruin my life.
But we couldn’t let go.
We were bound to each other on some primal level that consumed us.
Sometimes love is tragic.
Sometimes two people aren’t meant to be together.
But sometimes, two people overcome all adversity and build a love that lasts forever.
Deep in my heart I knew that Lion Maxwell could be my forever love.
As long as we kept our love a secret.
I wish I’d known beforehand that some secrets are too hard to keep…
***HEA approved, steam guaranteed.
Some rules are meant to be broken is what you think when you first meet Lion Maxwell , he is a world champion mma fighter who is rushed into emergency with a screwed up knee, where he meets the one woman that says no to him . Dr, Brigad Flanagan is that person she is his doctor and trying hard not to fall for his charm and cockiness. But the good dr. runs into him again and again so she decides what the hell . He is helping her son with his martial arts and she hasn't been with a man in such a long time. But they need to keep it quiet she is his dr. and can't date him . Can she .
The characters written with such gusto, Lion is so damn cocky you kind of want to knock him upside the head every now and then . As you read into the story you find as side of Lion that is sweet and sensitive , nothing like the character he portrays in the ring . Don't get me wrong he does have a temper when he is protecting the ones he loves . He is kind of crass also so you have to take him with a grain of salt sometimes Brigad is a complicated character . She is tough and well assured when she is working but her personal life is such a mess . She needs to get a back bone to stand up to her ex husband and his family and her son . She is such a wimp when it comes to her ex and his family . As you read you see her start to get her back bone and you see her grow as a character . The rest of the cast of characters add some spice to the book too
This was a fast read for me I read it in an afternoon while I was at the beach . The characters are well written and the story flows good but I found that it kind of dragged just a little in some areas . I felt like there was some that could of been left out . I just felt like sometimes there was too much cockiness and attitude by Lion . I wanted him to be more of a normal guy. Don't get me wrong over all I loved the book and trust me your kindle will melt and you will need a fan to cool down in some parts. So if you want to meet a cool couple and want a good summer read . Check it out you wont be disappointed
