I’ve always loved a good medical drama. I love the stories even better when the author mixes a medical tale with cops. Knowing my love of a good cops and docs story, it’s strange that I missed the Cops and Docs series that begins with Blurred Lines by K.D. Williamson. Thankfully, I’m reading this series now.
We meet Kelli McCabe when she and her partner Travis are shot, and both are brought to the hospital with life threatening wounds. There we meet Dr. Nora Whitmore, who eventually becomes Travis’s surgeon, but who also can’t seem to stay away from Kelli’s hospital room. As Kelli slowly recovers, the two become friends, though the chemistry between them hints at much more. Kelli is very gregarious, outspoken, and definitely has a potty mouth which becomes even more pronounced as she recovers. Nora is the ultimate ice queen. You would think these two could never mesh. Never say never though. When tragedy threatens both of them in different ways, the two work together to help each other leading to a gradual friendship and maybe more.
This is a charming slow-burn romance that had me hooked from the first page. It has everything you need for a great cops and docs romance from the two main characters, the chemistry between them, the outside forces they must overcome, to the slow growth of friendship that turns eventually to something more. This is the first of a series of books about these characters, so the story doesn’t completely end with this book, thank goodness. I can’t wait to start the second book and find out more about these wonderful characters.
I received an ARC from Ylva Publishing for an honest review.
