Kiera Connelly leads a quiet life, and that's just how she likes it. She's built a name as a graphic designer and meets up with her friends online, all from the comfort of her living room couch. But when a rare outing turns disastrous, Kiera finds herself up close and way too personal with an unbelievably hot real-life hero.
Zach Ashley doesn't see himself as a hero. He's just a regular guy who gets to help people every day as an EMT. But when he's called to a scene and has to treat his most gorgeous patient ever, he finds himself mixing work with pleasure. He never hesitates to put his life on the line...but will he ever risk his heart?
The sub-title of the series is "Opposites Attract" so I was expecting opposites. Unfortunately, I never really believed the attraction with Kiera, a game designer into cosplay, and Zach, an EMT with a hatred of the gaming lifestyle that he feels is destroying his younger sister's life.
I was hoping for more. A lot of the book felt one dimensional to me, as if the author was using the idea that Kiera was a geek as all of her character. There were moments where a personality was apparent...but for the most part, I felt the stereotype of who Kiera should be, because she is a gamer, was all of who she was. She hit all of the stereotypes, but had none of the nuance that the people who game (I know a few) have in my personal life...so I found that I was not able to connect with her completely. This pulled me out of the story.
I also thought the solution andsituation with his sister and family was resolved too easily for the depth of it. And, I thought his reaction at the end was childish and was actually a bit of a turn off for me. I felt like I was watching the temper tantrum of a child.
That said, I finished this instead of DNF as I liked the premise and I had a lot of hope. Unfortunately, that hope was not realized for this one.
I am not able to recommend this book.
Hi I'm Janna and I am a book whore! I started this blog after being a part of another for years. While being a big blog may be nice I like to stay true to me having a love for books, that's why I blog. I love books and I want to share that love with my readers of this blog. I love to read, books are my escape and a huge part of my life besides my husband and two children. I am honest and sometimes sassy in my reviews but never mean. Some of my favorite authors include Kristen Ashley, Penelope Douglas, T.M. Frazier, M.N. Forgy, Rachel Van Dyken, Meghan March and Vi Keeland to only name a few!
