Nora Bennett doesn’t need a man.
She is sure of this—except perhaps when it comes to the sexy stack of Aussie that is her ex-fling, Declan “Doc” Wellesley. He’s the one she can’t quite shake loose. And when her emotions go unexpectedly haywire after her best friend becomes a mother, her lingering connection with Doc becomes even harder to ignore.
Doc has a thorn in his paw when it comes to Nora. She’s the one that got away. The sex was hot, their chemistry off the charts, and he’s convinced there were—and still are—sparks of something deeper.
Even as Doc convinces a skittish Nora to give dating him another try, she confounds and confuses him every step of the way. One minute their connection is amazing, but then, Nora withdraws.
As Nora tries to shove Doc away once and for all, she tips her hand, revealing a dark secret. This forces her to realize there are only two options: face her past and embrace her man, or risk losing him for good.
This book was the perfect blend of funny and sexy. The characters had so much snark that I couldn’t help laughing at them. Doc was such a sexy, caring man, and his patience with Nora was fantastic. Nora had some demons she was battling, and even though she tried hard not to, she was slowly falling for Doc. I loved the way they played off each other, teasing and joking around and giving each other hell, all the while falling for each other.
The side characters were so much fun, too! I loved how Doc and Fox razzed each other, and the way Nora reacted to Sophie and Cam. I can’t wait to go back and read Fox, and I hope there are more Bohdi Beach books coming out in the future. This is the first book I’ve read by this author, but it’s certainly not going to be the last.
