A snowbound reunion!

Tension between Dr. Ella Lockwood and former navy doc Zac Davenport is sky-high! All she can think about is how he once broke her vulnerable heart.

But now she’s a confident ER surgeon who’ll never let him hurt her again. And being snowed in together on Christmas Eve at Manhattan Mercy reveals his last tour of duty has changed Zac, too. But that compelling spark is still there—and one more irresistible kiss is all it takes to start healing the wounds that have held them back…


Old friends reunite with a dash of fiery attraction! Our attention is piqued from the start and the story pace is quick and easy to delve into. The characters capture us with both the wit of friendly familiarity and the intrigue of figuring out the drama side of their memories with each other and in the lives they’ve led since they last saw each other. I wanted a bit more from the story outside of the initial snowbound in the hospital pitch, but overall it was a solid read and I enjoyed it!

Trauma surgeon Ella Lockwood has worked hard to achieve all that she has in her life so far, and she’s not going to let anything stand in her way of having the career that she wants. Not an over-bearing mother, or an ex-crush reappearing in her life when she least expects it!

They might be snowed in for Christmas at Manhattan Mercy, but former Navy Doc and trauma surgeon Zac Davenport doesn’t mind it a bit when he sees that his childhood friend Ella is there as well! He doesn’t realize that he broke her heart all those years ago until she gives him the cold shoulder, which leaves them to have to iron it all out while fighting the emergencies in the ER!
