Love has a way of interrupting the best laid plans.
Brad Torrence is a new journalist at the newspaper, but he won't be there much longer if he doesn't start writing more gripping stories. Cory Wolfe recently lost his best friend and mother of his unborn child. Brad writes a story about Cory's loss, and a wonderful romance begins between the two. Unfortunately, Brad's next story might bring him fame, but it also just might get him killed.
Brad was very sweet, lonely, and a bit naive. He worked hard at the newspaper, and even though he was technically a good writer, he wasn't doing a great job finding riveting stories. Cory was an anesthesiologist, extremely smart, hard-working, and still recovering from the loss of his best friend who was carrying his child when she died. The two of them together were presented as a realistic couple where life isn't perfect and people aren't always in a great mood. It was an interesting approach. The first part of the story focused on the two guys getting to know each other. After that, the focus was on the mystery surrounding fraud in the construction of the hospital. The plot moved quickly, the sex was steamy, and the romance was enjoyable.
The only thing that kept this from being a 5 star story for me was the amount of details provided about inane issues. It detracted from the flow of the story which was otherwise fantastic. If you like mysteries with your romance, this was a great romantic story!
