This is linked by characters to Reunited With Her Brooding Surgeon by Emily Forbes. Emily’s hero and heroine pop into this story, but both books can be read as standalones. However, why not read both? A double treat.

Lola Fraser is a specialist ICU nurse at Kirribilli Hospital in Sydney. The scenes in ICU make your head whirl they are so intense, but also fascinating and moving. I do like the attention to detail here, it’s like watching an episode of RPA or Ambulance. The patients become important to you, and you desperately want them to live and have their own happy ending!

Hamish Gibson is a trained paramedic from country Queensland, and comes to visit his sister Grace in Sydney. He stays at Grace’s Sydney flat and meets her flatmate Lola after she’s had a particularly tragic shift. Sadly, not everyone in her ICU makes it.

In dire need of comfort, with the attraction red hot between them, Lola and Hamish have an incredible one-night stand—both knowing Grace would be horrified if she found out.

Three months later, when Hamish returns to Sydney for an intensive paramedic course, his sister insists he stay at her flat (with Lola still there). Grace has moved in with her boyfriend Marcus, and having a temporary flat-mate will give Lola time to figure out whether she wants to stay there or move on. Obviously, Grace has no idea how difficult this is going to be for Lola and Hamish!

The recent past sizzles between them, as both are incredibly tempted but reluctant to give in to their incendiary attraction. Lola is a city girl and Hamish will soon return to his country town. Having an affair will break both their hearts, to say nothing of being super awkward around Grace.

Then Hamish and Lola get entangled in a horrifying massive emergency with a devastating outfall. It’s impossible for them to get through without turning to each other for comfort and sex and a re-establishment of life. But where will it lead?

Amy Andrews, thank you. Amy has given a fabulous mix of medical drama and blazing romance in this fabulous read.
