The last time Brody Clark left the Rivers, she walked away from her life―her foolish dreams, her few friends, and the secrets she’d kept from everyone. For ten years she’d told herself there was nothing in her past she cared about―not the family who’d given her a home or the one girl she never stopped thinking about. But now she’s back as part of the new medevac flight crew, for at least as long as it takes to finally bury her ghosts.
Val Valentine, DVM, planned on a big city boutique vet practice with high profile clients, easy hours, and lucrative profits. All until the man who was more father to her than her own asks for her help, and she ends up back in the backwater where all she has are bad memories.
Brody figures cutting her ties to the past would be a hell of a lot easier if she could only avoid the woman she’s never been able to forget. Since Val never even knew she was alive back in high school, that shouldn’t be too hard now. When their lives collide, both women discover what might have been is closer than they think.
Thank you to NetGalley and Radclyffe for the ebook copy to review.
– The publisher: almost always creates great books and many that are centered around the medical world
– ER, medics, vet practice all in one book – authentic and well written as always
– Lots of details to get to know the town and make it feel like you’re really there in the story
– Romance, but need to wait until more than half way through for it
– Good representation LGBTQIA+
– Romance in the medical field – a personal favorite of mine
– Medical info is well done – always makes for a much better, more authentic read
– There’s a trans character as well
– Couldn’t get into the book in the beginning – I read other books from the same author and was captivated right away. To be fair, I was tired when reading Love to the Rescue so that may have been a factor.
– The tension, awkwardness and almost hatred at the beginning
– Family drama – might be realistic but not enjoyable to read about
– Captured my attention more
– More of a feel good book. It’s not bad, but lately I’m not quite in the mood for drama and tension in my personal life.
Overall, good but not my favorite novel that I’ve read by Radclyffe. As always, I love the romance, medical field setting, and LGBTQIA+ centric characters. I didn’t love the tension and family drama throughout. I would still recommend Love to the Rescue by Radclyffe.
