A new standalone romance from USA Today bestselling author Deanna Roy
Tina would rather sew up her girl parts with dental floss than go on a second date with a man. She's been dumped enough to know not to get attached.
But when Dr. Darion Marks comes into her art therapy room to ask a favor for a special patient, Tina recognizes the haunted look he buries beneath his stoic professionalism. So rather than be forced to ditch the handsome doctor after a single night, she decides not to date him at all.
So how exactly DO they end up half-naked in Surgical Suite B?
Dr. Darion has a lot to hide. His baby sister is the only family he has left, and he’s not leaving her treatment to some incompetent hack.
But now he’s breaking every hospital rule imaginable. He lied about his sister so he can manage her care, and now he’s banging the art therapy teacher between patient rounds like a fraternity boy at a keg party.
Nobody believes this can end well, not Tina’s friend Corabelle, who is overcoming a tragic history much like Tina’s, or even pink-haired Jenny, who thinks sex with strangers is good for your metabolism.
But Dr. Darion and Tina have one thing going for them – a fierce passion for each other that just might obliterate all their doubts, and solve all their problems.
Forever Sheltered includes many favorite characters from Forever Innocent and Forever Loved, as well as the much-anticipated wedding of Gavin and Corabelle.
It is a standalone HEA that does not require reading any other parts of the Forever series.
Wonderful – made me laugh, made me cry
Forever Sheltered is the third book in The Forever Series but it can be read as a standalone without any problem. You might get a bit more enjoyment out of it if you read the first two books before this one (they are great books) but you won’t be lost if you don’t.
I love books that make me feel things and this one certainly did that. The story is told from alternating POVs which was perfect for this story. Tina has had a difficult life but she has persevered and is coming out on top. She doesn’t do relationships but there’s something about Dr. Darion Marks that gets to her. She feels he’s hiding something and wants him to trust her enough to tell her about it. Dr. Darion has a difficult relationship with his father and this influences his behavior and why he’s keeping a secret from Tina.
This book has just the right amount of angst. It’s not a dark story but the road to their HEA isn’t really smooth; the epilogue was perfect. The heat level between the h & H is up there but I wouldn’t call it too graphic; there are no F-bombs.
I loved every bit of this story and it’s my favorite book in the series so far. It was hard to put down but I had to get some sleep! I’m looking forward to reading books for the other supporting characters.
I was given and ARC of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.
This was the first book I have read by this author. It was great. The right mix of angst and mystery and happy tears. I look forwarding to reading the other books in this series.
