Nora Bennett doesn't need a man.
She is sure of this-except perhaps when it comes to the sexy stack of Aussie that is her ex-fling, Declan "Doc" Wellesley. He's the one she can't quite shake loose. And when her emotions go unexpectedly haywire after her best friend becomes a mother, her lingering connection with Doc becomes even harder to ignore.
Doc has a thorn in his paw when it comes to Nora. She's the one that got away. The sex was hot, their chemistry off the charts, and he's convinced there were-and still are-sparks of something deeper.
Even as Doc convinces a skittish Nora to give dating him another try, she confounds and confuses him every step of the way. One minute their connection is amazing, but then, Nora withdraws.
As Nora tries to shove Doc away once and for all, she tips her hand, revealing a dark secret. This forces her to realize there are only two options: face her past and embrace her man or risk losing him for good.

I heart Doc & Nora! This story was such an emotional, angst, sexy hell of a ride. Um yeah I can't quite look at certain cars the same way again! Okay, I was on fire with the interactions of Doc and Nora. Nora is a strong headed woman who has a past that keeps her from moving forward when it comes to relationships, especially with Doc. There are times I loved her, hated her and felt for her. Doc is a smart, handsome, sexy, fun loving and super swoony Aussie man that I could not get enough of. Nora can step aside and let us have Doc to ourselves. No but seriously she is one lucky lady landing a man like Doc. I'd gladly stay in bed all day with him too if he was mine. Author S.M. Lumetta brought us another couple that you will laugh, fall in love and want to be with.
So freaking good! My first book from this author, but definitely not my last. I’m giving it 4.5 out of 5 stars. Thanks to the publicist/author for providing me a copy in exchange for a honest review. So I’m a little annoyed that I wasn’t aware this was book two in a series when I requested the ARC (and Goodreads didn’t show it as part of a series back then either), but that said, I think it can be read as a standalone! The characters from the first book are in this book, and it would have been nice to read their story first, but it wasn’t really necessary. I might go back someday and read book one, but who knows. At this time, it kind of feels pointless. This was a fun romance with the guy chasing the girl. Props for that, because it’s more often the other way around. In my opinion, we definitely need more men chasing women! I loved the characters. Declan (Doc), Nora, Sophie, Fox, Cameron, etc. I laughed at least a few times while reading this, and it was a thoroughly enjoyable read. I mean it would have to be if I read it in two nights, right? I wouldn’t say this is a dark book, but there’s some parts that make your heart ache a bit. Overall, it’s an amazing read. I can’t wait to read another book by this author. I’m wondering if there’s going to be at least one, or two, more books in this series with some of the other characters. I can’t wait to find out!
This book was the perfect blend of funny and sexy. The characters had so much snark that I couldn’t help laughing at them. Doc was such a sexy, caring man, and his patience with Nora was fantastic. Nora had some demons she was battling, and even though she tried hard not to, she was slowly falling for Doc. I loved the way they played off each other, teasing and joking around and giving each other hell, all the while falling for each other. The side characters were so much fun, too! I loved how Doc and Fox razzed each other, and the way Nora reacted to Sophie and Cam. I can’t wait to go back and read Fox, and I hope there are more Bohdi Beach books coming out in the future. This is the first book I’ve read by this author, but it’s certainly not going to be the last.
And there is another winner by S.M. Lumetta ! Doc is the second book in the Bodhi Beach Series.While Doc can easily be read as a standalone, there are only a few cross overs, I recommend to read the books in order. You´ll have a better understanding. The first book in the series,Fox tells Sophie and Fox´s story. Nora Bennett needs no man - except her ex. Declan - Dex - Wellesley can´t get her out of his head. He wants Nora, she´s the only one that got away. These two have a chemistry through the roof high. Finally he convinces her to give dating him a try. Nora is a strong woman, she´s practically broke and homeless, but she doesn´t give up and her friends stand by her side. The thing with Doc is a totally another matter, they fight and hurt each other deeply. Favorite Quote: " .. punishing yourself for hoping was like slapping someone for making you happy. " I literally just finished this book and can´t say how much I love the story and the characters. Book one, Fox was a read I greatly enjoyed and I love Doc and Nora´s story too. You´ll find a great story, wonderful characters and another australian hunk in Doc. 5 stars.
