What happens when Remington's most notoriously single, notoriously sexy surgeon falls for the one woman he can't have? Did I mention that she's A) his best friend, B) immune to his charm, and C) sleeping on his couch for the next six weeks?
Familiarity breeds temptation for Jonah Sheridan and Natalie Kendrick in this steamy friends-to-lovers medical contemporary romance. While part of the Remington Medical world, this book is a complete standalone and can be read as your first Kimberly Kincaid novel, or your twentieth. No cliffhangers, no spoilers, all red-hot HEA!
Kimberly Kincaid aims straight for the heart in this second installment of her Remington Medical series. If the best-friends-to-lovers trope wasn't enough to hook me, her characters and the journey Kincaid guides them through was. I adore these two. I love their ease with one another, how they always have each other's backs, how they navigate the awkwardness that ensues when a falling bathtub (yes, you read that right) causes them to become temporary roommates. Kincaid hits just the right notes when their friendship slides into more intimate territory and I love that she takes her time in getting them to that point. Their journey is true to their characters as are the ways they deal with obstacles thrown into their paths. Their chemistry is off the charts but also sweetly endearing (a wonderful balance), their foundation of friendship is solid, and the challenges to their happiness are believable as is each of their reactions to those challenges. Their HEA is realistic (no spoilers - you'll have to read the book to see what I mean) and reminds us that when life's potholes await, it's even more important to open our hearts to love and open our lives to those who will always have our backs.
Remington Memorial offers up a fascinating cast of doctors, nurses, interns, and more. As with the first book in the series, they all have page time, helping to move Jonah and Natalie's story forward even as their own stories continue to evolve (think Grey's Anatomy). Readers new to the series should be able to jump right in without confusion while those who have already read Back to You will enjoy catching up with their favorites. (Read my review of Back to You)
The third book in the series, Between Me and You, is scheduled to be released later this summer. The teaser in the Better Than Me epilogue already has me counting the days!
