Unrivaled by Radclyffe is a lovely medical romance, and just the kind of book I was looking to read. I love an intense, fast-paced medical drama with gorgeous characters and a compelling tale. I can always count on Radclyffe to write a story that fits this description perfectly.
This novel takes place in the PMC Hospital universe so those of you who have read some or all of those books will recognize both the setting and some of the secondary characters. However, this book can be read as a standalone since it really focuses on the two main characters; Zoey Cohen, a third year resident, and Declan Black who is returning to PMC as an ER attending. Both women have things in their pasts that make them leery of romantic relationships, but they can’t deny the attraction they feel for each other.
Because this is a setting that the author has used in multiple books, it is obviously well made and realistic. The characters are also well-developed and fit their roles perfectly both in the hospital setting and as friends and family outside of the hospital. The love story between Zoey and Declan is a slow burn romance with a fair amount of angst involved. The story itself is exactly what you expect for a love story in an intense medical setting.
I really enjoyed reading Unrivaled, and recommend it to all who love to read medical romances.
I received an ARC from NetGalley and Bold Strokes Books for an honest review.
