Sometimes we need a chance to get away from real life for a while. We need an escape from the harsh or sad times we may be living through. That was me this past week, and I’m very glad I had Love on the Night Shift by Radclyffe to give me a few hours escape.
This novel is the sixth book in the Rivers Community Romance Series, and it is a great addition. In this story we meet Blaise, the head ER nurse on the night shift, and Grady, a new attending surgeon at The Rivers. Sparks fly the moment the two meet, but the road to romance and love will always have its speed-bumps. One of the bumps in this story may be the secret that Blaise has kept to herself for many years. Even Abby, her best friend doesn’t know this secret, but it could completely derail the budding relationship between Blaise and Grady.
The story is well written, as are all of the books in this series. The characters are well developed and easy to fall in love with. The setting, of course is lovely, and I enjoy visiting this small town and all the people in it with every book.
This book is a fitting addition to the River’s series. I happen to really like reading medical dramas/romances, and the Rivers Community series is one of the best. Each story is about a different couple, but they also add on to the stories in the previous books. The main characters in one novel will become secondary but often important characters in the following stories. You can read these stories individually, but I honestly think you should read them all, hopefully in the order they were written. I believe you will enjoy them all more that way.
If you are looking for something to read that will take you away for a bit, and leave you feeling happy, then try not only Love on the Night Shift, but this entire series. You won’t be disappointed.
I received an ARC from NetGalley and Bold Strokes Books for an honest review.
