The emotional issues in the sixth book of The Hollywood Hills Clinic continuity are often poignant and definitely realistic. From anguish causing situations in the past to current complex problems, the two main characters face challenges that keep them from having a normal relationship, and I was completely drawn into their lives from the very beginning. Lynne Marshall has created such engaging individuals for her story, where hearts are on the line and feelings are conflicted. HIS PREGNANT SLEEPING BEAUTY is an enchanting romance where wishes just might come true if chances are taken.
His job as a paramedic plus owner of several ambulances lets Joseph Matthews aid those in need, and working for The Hollywood Hills Clinic has turned his business into a thriving career. On the night that he witnesses a woman being attacked, he uses all his training to make certain she recovers from being knocked out. With no one else to help her, Joe feels duty-bound to be the person watching over her until she comes out of a coma. Learning she is pregnant makes the compassionate paramedic even more determined to be there when she awakens. While he has not let any woman get close to him since the unfaithfulness of his wife, there is something about Carey Spencer which causes him to deeply care about her well-being.
When it comes to her immediate future, Carey has few choices. So she is very appreciative for all the assistance Joe unselfishly gives her. Worry over her child may have initially led her to trust the man who has gone out of his way to help many times. Although unspoken, it soon becomes apparent that how Joe and Carey see one another is more than just friends.
If I happened to be in Hollywood and was injured, I really hope the paramedic sent to check on me would have Joe’s nature. He is so concerned about the needs of other people, and anyone under his care is extremely lucky. His protective side is evident from the instant he comes in contact with Carey, and how he takes an interest in her future welfare is commendable, especially when being around her causes lots of bad memories to surface. With the author’s skilled writing, I was able to get insight into his thoughts and know exactly how he felt at any given time. He is certainly not looking to be in a relationship anytime soon, but the honest responses of Carey might possibly sneak past the wall he has built around his heart.
Lynne Marshall always lets her readers experience the circumstances in the lives of her characters to the fullest, and the occurrences in HIS PREGNANT SLEEPING BEAUTY are some of her most compelling yet. Carey has been through a traumatic incident, and I enjoyed seeing how she tried to move forward in her life and not sit around feeling sorry for herself. I think her positive outlook helped this couple to form a connection from the first, as small things brought her much joy. I could not help but smile at the pleasure she received from a simple meal. Like many romances, Ms. Marshall takes her couple on a journey of highs plus lows, and I am so glad for the chance to go through it with Joe and Carey. HIS PREGNANT SLEEPING BEAUTY is constantly stirring because of intense emotions.
