(Received ARC in exchange for our honest review.)
Annabelle Shaffer is a young nurse who keeps to herself and has sworn off men in her life because she doesn’t want to fall in love and risk losing more people in her life.
Turner Brooks is an orthopedic doctor who is every bit the alpha-male and who is used to having his way with the nurses and not used to hearing no. Until Annabelle, that is.
Turner can’t get Annabelle out of his head after she twisted her ankle trying to run bases at the family baseball game in flip-flops. It takes everything Annabelle has to say no to Taylor, men are not on her radar or in her future.
Turner wears Annabelle down by forcing her to face her fears through a series of dates and breaking down her walls.
I haven’t read Bender yet, so I didn’t really know what to expect from Stacy’s writing, and my friends loved, loved, loved Bender! The story was cute. The chemistry was okay. There were some laugh-out-loud moments and some heavy moments where I could feel my heart breaking for Annabelle.
I read it pretty quickly, but the story didn’t suck me in so much that I hated to put it down. I rated it 3.5, it’s almost a 4.0 for me, but it seemed like something was missing. Would I recommend the read to one of my friends? Possibly, depends on that friend’s likes. Was it a waste of my time? No it definitely was a cute and heart-warming book.
