ARC Review: Doc by S.M. Lumetta

Title: Doc
Author: S.M. Lumetta
Series: Bodhi Beach #2
Publisher: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform
Publication date: February 12, 2018
Source: Publicist/author
Summary (via Goodreads): Nora Bennett doesn’t need a man.

 

She is sure of this—except perhaps when it comes to the sexy stack of Aussie that is her ex-fling, Declan “Doc” Wellesley. He’s the one she can’t quite shake loose. And when her emotions go unexpectedly haywire after her best friend becomes a mother, her lingering connection with Doc becomes even harder to ignore.

 

Doc has a thorn in his paw when it comes to Nora. She’s the one that got away. The sex was hot, their chemistry off the charts, and he’s convinced there were—and still are—sparks of something deeper.

 

Even as Doc convinces a skittish Nora to give dating him another try, she confounds and confuses him every step of the way. One minute their connection is amazing, but then, Nora withdraws.

 

As Nora tries to shove Doc away once and for all, she tips her hand, revealing a dark secret. This forces her to realize there are only two options: face her past and embrace her man, or risk losing him for good.

So freaking good! My first book from this author, but definitely not my last. I’m giving it 4.5 out of 5 stars. Thanks to the publicist/author for providing me a copy in exchange for a honest review.

 

So I’m a little annoyed that I wasn’t aware this was book two in a series when I requested the ARC (and Goodreads didn’t show it as part of a series back then either), but that said, I think it can be read as a standalone! The characters from the first book are in this book, and it would have been nice to read their story first, but it wasn’t really necessary. I might go back someday and read book one, but who knows. At this time, it kind of feels pointless.

 

This was a fun romance with the guy chasing the girl. Props for that, because it’s more often the other way around. In my opinion, we definitely need more men chasing women! I loved the characters. Declan (Doc), Nora, Sophie, Fox, Cameron, etc. I laughed at least a few times while reading this, and it was a thoroughly enjoyable read. I mean it would have to be if I read it in two nights, right?

 

I wouldn’t say this is a dark book, but there’s some parts that make your heart ache a bit. Overall, it’s an amazing read. I can’t wait to read another book by this author. I’m wondering if there’s going to be at least one, or two, more books in this series with some of the other characters. I can’t wait to find out!
