Healing Her Heart by Audra North
Stanton Family #3
This was probably my least favorite of the series only because I never really liked Carrie and her attitude toward their arrangement. Overall, the story wasn’t bad and Greg was a pretty decent character.
“He felt good for the first time in a long time because she was in his life.”
The overall plot but wasn’t too bad and I liked the idea of a doctor being confronted with anxiety over losing patients. It really humanizes the medical profession which I feel like is often glamorized in romance novels and shows that feature sexy doctors. Carrie just didn’t work for me. I understand how hurt she was by her ex-fiance, but she really takes it out on Greg. They both agree to the no-strings affair but Carrie spends the entire time acting like Greg is using her and that theirs absolutely no emotion involved in what they’re doing. Also she’s unhappy because Greg finds peace when he’s with her. To me, this is a huge part of loving someone, they act as a rock in the sea of crazy that the world is.
2 out of 5 stars
Informing the next of kin of a patient’s death is hardly cardiac surgeon Greg Stanton’s favorite activity. Tired of spreading bad news, he decides to take a week off and enjoy a few extra curricular activities—one in particular that hopefully involves a certain blonde director.
Carrie’s experience as the Director of New Beginnings, an Assisted Living Residence, has taught her that the wisdom of the elderly is often more healing than any drug. So when Greg drops by her office to tell her one of her residents passed away and mentions he’s taking some time off, Carrie suggests that he spend the time volunteering at her facility.
Greg is in need of a way to de-stress. After being burned by her ex-fiance, Carrie needs a little fun. What’s a little sex between friends? But when their casual arrangement is complicated by real feelings, one of them will have to step up to save what could be something special before they both tear it apart.
