Against Doctors Orders by Radclyffe

A great start to the ‘A Rivers Community Romance’ Series.

Authors Synopsis

There’d been a Rivers at the helm of Argyle Community Hospital for six generations, and Harper Rivers was set to take her father’s place whenever he decided to hang up his shingle. Unfortunately, the board of directors had other ideas—they accepted a buyout offer from a health care conglomerate with plans to close the hospital’s doors to the community that depended on it. And Presley Worth, a high-powered corporate financier, came to town to oversee the closure. Funny thing was, no one asked Harper, and she had no intentions of following anyone’s orders but her own—no matter how beautiful, smart, or commanding the new boss might be.

My Review

I really enjoyed this book. It reminded me of the ER Romance Series by Radclyffe but with a more country feel. If there is one thing Radclyffe does well its right great Medical Romances. I am never disappointed and she has a way of explaining medical terms that make the reader feel at ease.

I really identified with the Rivers Family and their closeness to each other. It was a nice element in the book and really showed the solidarity in the drama surrounding the hospital closure. The relationship between Harper and her sister Flannery was quite comical at times to read but I enjoyed their closer moments when the barriers came down and the real emotions where shown. Looking forward to seeing Flannery grow in the next book.

The sex scenes in true Rad fashion where good, not my favourite she’s written but still very well written. She doesn’t seem to go wrong in that department in her books. I loved how the book ended, the last few chapters had me quite invested in Harper and Presley making it work and staying together.

Great start to a new Rad Series. 4 Stars
