Originally published by Dorchester Publishing, March 2007

After being dumped by her boyfriend and passed over for yet another promotion, Monica Gardner moves to New Orleans, determined to make a name for herself as the new attending ER physician at Methodist Memorial Hospital. As for men--she's through with them. But when given the chance to chair the hospital's annual charity banquet, Monica must elicit the help of gorgeous Ob-gyn Elijah Holmes.

Eli will do anything to thwart his matchmaking Mama's plan to reunite him with his high school girlfriend. So, when the sexy new ER doc asks for his help in planning this year's charity banquet, Eli devises the perfect scheme: He'll help put on the best banquet the hospital has ever seen, if Monica poses as his new girlfriend. But when Eli finds himself falling in love, he realizes convincing Monica of his true feelings may be his greatest delivery yet.

This book was BORING and repetitive. I thought it was going to be interesting since I'm a sucker for medical dramas, but no I waded through this book like slogging through cold molasses.

Written at a sixth grade level. Boring. No plot. A waste of my time and money.

All I can say is read the book, it was wonderful. There has been such a decline in tradition romance since the Zane's & Mary B's have come out. 'Not knocking them I love their work, I just enjoy tradition romance too' A star is about to rise in romance. Looking forward to more!

This is the type of book that leaves me wanting more! The characters are well drawn, interesting and the type of people I'd want as my friends in real life. I was able to see, feel and understand why Monica Gardner and Elijah Holmes fell in love with each other, and I had such a good time watching it happen. As a health care professional I found their world to be completely believable it's rare to find someone who isn't a doctor truly understand the crazy schedule and long hours that go with the job. The author did a pretty good job with the medical lingo, too! I won't go into the details of the story - the synopsis here does a better job than I could. But I do want to add that the location (post-Katrina New Orleans) was like another character in the story. The author's love for the city and its people is evident in every chapter. The only reason this book gets 4 stars instead of 5 is that it was over too quickly. I wanted to see more of Eli and Monica! Hopefully I will, when the other Holmes brothers get their own happily ever afters.

Loved the characters so much I am looking forward to the other books about Toby and Alex. My biggest issue was the many typos throughout the book.

This book is so poorly written it's like reading a fourteen year old girl's diary. The characters are weak, the dialogue is laughable, the entire book was a waste of time and money. Book one of a trilogy? I definitely won't bother with 2&3! What I found most ridiculous was that one character kept correcting a small child's grammar, when the author couldn't be bothered to use decent grammar or sentence structure herself. Didn't anyone proofread this book?

By: Farrah Rochon Published By: Leisure Books Age Recommended: Adult Reviewed By: Arlena Dean Rating: 4 Series: Holmes and Brothers #1 Review: "Deliver Me" by Farrah Rochon was some good read. This author put two stories together and went back and forth till the end. I did really get a better understanding of the second story...in that it had a ending. I felt that the first or main story read through fine until the end. There was not explanations given ... the story just ended...giving the reader a OK 'the end read.' This contemporary romance was still a good read however, we were not given a resolution of what and even why. Other than that I will still recommend "Deliver Me" as a worth while read. How this author was able to get these two couples together especially in the end was pure magic. All of the characters were well developed and most colorful only to give the reader a well written story. I also liked how this author was able to bring in 'New Orleans' description ...post Katrina. "Deliver Me" definitely left you wanting more of the Holmes Brothers.

I read the second book in this series and couldn’t wait to read the first and last book. I really liked the second book and couldn’t wait to read about Elijah and Alex’s story. I almost read Alex’s story first, but changed my mind. I wanted to see how Elijah and Monica got together. I loved that these two wanted to fight their attraction, especially Monica. She didn’t trust easily, since she was burned before. Deliver Me had a good story line, even if it was pretty predictable.

This was a very busy book. It was different as it switched from Monica and Eli to Jeffrey and Amanda and over to Eli's family. Monica was trying to get over a bad breakup. Eli was deciding he needed to change his date habits. Jeffrey didn't like Amanda's Mom being bipolar and ignoring it while Amanda knew she also had bipolar disorder and wanting a divorce so Jeffrey could have a good life without her. I can't imagine the crazy lives of doctors. Always on the run and wondering if and when you would be butcalled back in to work. Definitely not for me but I'm glad it's good for others. These characters were very realistic. They had their lives and troubles just like the rest of us. With lots of love and talking they finally got their lives together. Please read this book. I reads like a long book but I finished it in two days. This is an ADD me to your Library book. Enjoy!

I enjoyed the banter between Eli and Monica. I loved the way Ms Rochon incorporated all the characters. I was introduced to this writer recently and would read other titles by her.

Emergency room Dr. Monica Gardner was already considering a change following the news broadcasts of what Katrina did to the Gulf, but Patrick Dangerfield and his lies made it easier for her to leave depression behind in St. Louis and start anew start in New Orleans at Methodist Memorial. Her first day on the job starts with a fender bender and then a C-section emergency that has ¿Super-Doc¿ Eli Holmes demanding to know who she is and to get out that she was fired. A new emergency saves Eli from her wrath. --- Administrator Dr. Slessinger gets Monica to join their charity board of which Eli is a member too. They reach a truce and soon make a deal to pretend they are seeing one another in order to keep his family from setting him up on dates he does not want and to keep the male vultures from surrounding her with courtships she does not want. As they work together and spend some time away from the hospital together, they fall in love however his relationships last a month and she still feels distrust towards males thanks to Dangerfield. --- DELIVER ME is enhanced by the vivid description practicing medicine in post Katrina New Orleans thus the delightful romance takes a back seat to the action of the emergency room. The lead couple is a fine matching of dedicated physicians wary of love while the romance of a secondary couple adds depth to a loaded story line. Elementary my dear readers, as Farrah Rochon captures the city inside her fabulous contemporary medical romance with hopefully more Holmesian sibling tales to follow. --- Harriet Klausner
