This would have ben better written as a short story.It was very dragged out and predictable.This was a story of love, misunderstanding caused by extenuating circumstances.The story line had interesting hospital protocol situations.There was merit to it. The sex scene was explicit andunnecessary. There are wonderful literary descriptionswithout going into detail. Most of us has a good understandingand solid imagination of the feelings and process of intimacy.
“Babies in the Bargain” Displays Three Areas of Excellence: 1. Very Strong Emotional writing. 2. All pervasive centrality of the romantic relationship. 3. A high level of medical expertise essential to the plot. In short, “Babies in the Bargain,” has everything I like to see in a medical romance but often don’t see. The author, Mona Risk, has a Ph.D. in Chemistry and a daughter who is a Neonatologist. The medical elements are very realistic and they are also essential to the plot. I don’t like it when medical terminology is used simply because the story is a medical romance. I also appreciate the romantic relationship between the hero doctor and heroine doctor is as pervasive as I’ve ever seen in a romance. When the hero and heroine are not interacting, they are still thinking about each other and the relationship. If you like the romantic part of a romance, then “Babies in the Bargain” can’t be beat. “Babies in the Bargain” could serve as an object lesson on how to ‘show’ and not ‘tell’ a story. You know exactly what the characters are feeling at all times and for the most part you feel it along with them. It’s a great read. The heroine is a doctor who is working to get board certified in neonatology. The hero is a respected anesthesiologist who had an affair with the heroine seven years earlier. When a family emergency took the hero away to Puerto Rico he seemed to have abandoned her. She has always loved him and now he has come back into her life by moving back to town. His brother and sister-in-law are soon killed leaving a premature baby that the hero must raise. Of course, he is in need of a mother and thinks the heroine is the perfect candidate.
