Goodreads:  Mitchell Sorrow wallows in a major funk after his decades-long crush leaves town for good. Intent on powering through, he throws himself into his work as an EMT at Smithville Regional Hospital. He’ll steer clear of women, especially those who love their careers more than people.

Jackie Myers, chief development officer at a hospital association, is determined to climb the corporate ladder. The best way to do that is to show upper management she’s capable of making tough decisions, such as closing a fledgling rural hospital. When she’s assigned to visit Smithville under the guise of writing an article about small-town life, she’ll easily assess how dire the hospital situation really is.

After suffering an allergic reaction at the fall festival, Jackie blabs the true reason for her visit. Desperate to save the hospital, Mitch agrees to a deal. In exchange for keeping her secret, he gets one week to convince her the hospital is essential. But the more time they spend together, the more complicated things become. Mitch begins to open his heart, and Jackie’s decision becomes nearly impossible. He may never forgive her, and she’ll lose the only guy who can take her breath away – no Epi pen required.

Kritters Thoughts:  Book three in a series where each book focuses on a different character, so I have read book one, missed book two and it was easy for me to get into this story and dive head in.  

Mitchell Sorrow is an EMT in small town in Georgia and other than a lack of a love life, he has enjoyed life in a small town.  He loves taking care of his neighbors in their time of need and has focused on that instead of his love life.  In walks, Jackie Myers who is an executive for a hospital association and throughout her career has evaluated hospitals on their numbers and while the numbers in this small town aren't great, she is shown that hospitals are more than numbers, but are about patients who depend on them at their weakest moment.  

This was one of those romance books where the characters start out enemies and then become lovers, but for me it worked.  They weren't horribly mean on page one and it was easy for me to watch them grow from hate to like to love and while the book was short, it didn't feel too much like instalove and I think this is all due to the traumatic event that flipped the switch and it completely and utterly worked for me.  

After reading and loving Jackie and Mitchell's story, I am drawn to read book two in this series and find out what I missed because I just loved the arc of these characters.

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
