Only Yours: My Review

Only Yours (Hqn)

About the Book:
Montana Hendrix has found her calling—working with therapy dogs. With a career she loves in a hometown she adores, she's finally ready to look for her own happily ever after. Could one of her dogs help her find Mr. Right… or maybe Dr. Right?

Surgeon Simon Bradley prefers the sterility of the hospital to the messiness of real life, especially when real life includes an accident-prone mutt and a woman whose kisses make him want what he knows he can't have. Scarred since childhood, he avoids emotional entanglement by moving from place to place to heal children who need his skillful touch. Can his growing feelings for Montana lead him to find a home in Fool's Gold, or will he walk away, taking her broken heart with him?

My Comments:
I almost quit reading this one.  I found the writing to be weak and melodramatic and some situations highly improbable.  Dr. Wonderful Surgeon discusses a patient's personal life with his girlfriend, a hospital volunteer--can we say HIPAA violation?  A little girl with horrible burn injuries goes into cardiac arrest in the hospital.  CPR is administered and a couple of hours later the little girl is feeling much better (and didn't have a sore chest).  

I figured out real early on what the resolution would be--but that's not a reach with a romance novel.  I kept reading because of of a subplot involving Nevada's mother, but it was just a set-up for another book, which I will not be reading.  

I'd like to thank the publisher for making a review copy available via NetGalley  Grade:  C


  1. I was thinking- if the typical reader zooms through a book as fast as you, that could get to be an expensive past time. I don't think I get any book read in less than a week.

  2. I do read fast, and there is no way I'd pay for all the books I read. If I didn't have all these review books, I'd use the library.
