Carli Santos is a St. Louis trauma nurse who takes her work very seriously. She has little interest in someone coming into the emergency department to film a show for television! And especially if that someone is sexier than sin and challenges her from day one. Carli’s had enough past experience with difficult men to last her a lifetime, and the new one in her life is no exception! She doesn’t need the distraction, or heartbreak, of fighting an attraction for someone who’s off limits by his own admission.
Reid Brandt is a successful executive producer, confirmed bachelor and lives the glamorous life of after award show parties and all things Hollywood. When a new assignment leads him to a St. Louis trauma department, he finds more than he expected when he meets Trauma Team Leader, Carli Santos. Her incredible beauty, and off the usual beaten path personality Reid’s accustomed to in women, just add to the attraction. Reid neither needs, nor wants, any distractions while on this new assignment, or so he believes!
Will Reid’s traumatic past prevent him from seeing Carli for who she really is? A woman who’s worth the sacrifice and letting go of the things he thinks he can’t live without. The decisions are hard, and the sacrifice seems impossible, until a near tragic event changes what preconceived notions are all about!
