Overview

Dr. Jack Stephens didn't care. Nothing mattered to him. He didn't care about feelings. He didn't care about love. If it wasn't on the operating table, he never cared about the heart. For a world-class cardiac surgeon, he was as closed off to love as they come, the living definition of irony. It wasn't until he took a minute for himself on the hospital roof and saw a woman standing on the ledge that he realized once and for all that just maybe, something did matter.

Dr. Stephanie Brown was lost. She had been through something so unimaginable and she was in trouble, no, she was drowning. There was a killer after her and her reasons for fighting were gone. The only thing she could do was take the power away from him and end things on her terms. She stepped onto that ledge as a means to end all that mattered. Everything hurt her. Every breath was filled with pain and her bruises and burns brought nothing but reminders of what she lost. There was nothing that mattered to her except an end to the pain. Nothing would stop her, not even the tall surgeon who caught her standing on the ledge.

Nothing Matters is Book One in a series. It is a story of love and of discovery. It doesn't matter how much education we have or how secure in our lives we are, sometimes something happens that throws us off our axis. What we think and what we know to be true are as corporeal as who we are, but when that security is taken away; we are forced to learn what we are truly made of. Any reader of contemporary women's fiction will enjoy reading the honesty and the imperfections of these characters. They are flawed and they are real, something both daunting and heartwarming. There are many things in this world that test our faith and our belief that people are genuinely good, but through this series, we see that even in the darkest times of our lives, we can rely on each other.

I enjoyed the free read but it did take me longer to read then it would normally have taken. I do not think I will continue series but the same happened throughout book--get hurt and heal, get hurt and heel, get hurt etc...jas

While I do not read works of fiction expecting everything to be the way it would in real life, I found myself asking, "Really?!?" as one bad thing after another happened in this book. I was hooked at the beginning of the book, bored by the middle, and by the end, I just wanted resolution. The plot was great, with a lot of unnecessary erotic scenes sprinkled throughout the last half of the book, with no real meaning.

The plot was fine, but the quality of writing was terrible. It felt like it was written by a teenager, or something. I only made it about halfway through the thousand page book. I just couldn't get into it.

I forgot to mention something else that bothered me. Stephanie has 2nd & 3rd degree burns on her arms & torso, but the author seems to be unaware that 3rd degee burns result in nerve damage, meaning no more feeling in those areas, & if I'm not mistaken, the necessity for skin grafts. Writers, please do your research. It's not hard; most things can be found on the internet now.

I was excited to read a story about someone dealing with MS, but there was very little about MS. The story was over the top melodramatic and unbelievable. Several typos and written with almost no contractions. I don't think I'll be reading the second installment.

Couldn't get through it. To much drama. He went from a male slut to a whiner. It might be a good story, but i can't get through it to know.

I loved this story. It had great characters and it flowed really well. I also liked the way the writer made the characters imperfect. MS is a hard disease and this story made me feel better about myself and hopefully will help others see what we go through. Can't wait for book two.

This was a good love story, but every other page it seem that Jack or Stephanie was crying and reasuring each other, there are a few type-o's but nothing to major. I enjoyed reading it.

Ok this book is really really long - over 1000 pgs and that's not including book 2. I was interested at first BUT everything bad that could happen to 2 people did happen. Getting shot, burned, beaten and stalked was only the beginning. The whole issue of having MS and it being treated as some kind of vulgar disease is slap in the face for those who actually live w/ this disease. And the constant emotional roller coaster that these 2 were on was exhausting. There were enough tears in this book by both characters to fill a lake. And despite all the numerous times the 2 characters spoke of their burning love for one another - I didn't feel their connection. There were merely words on paper that reapted over and over again It was as if the author actually included every possible lover-lost-and-found scenario ever written. This book was just too much! When I read a work of fiction I like to think that the scenarios could happen in the real world but this book was just a completly unbelievable, long, exhausting work of fiction.

A really great read., it kept me interested all through the book, especially after Jack and Stephanie feel in love, the only real trouble was Stefanie's best friend who died because of her husband, and he hated Stephanie, because she had MS! And it was great, I would reccomend no, I would DEMAND anyone else who wanted to try this book, to pick it up because YOU WILL LOVE IT!! Kudos too Robin Nadler, you rock!
