Who Wants to Marry A Doctor is book two of the With This Ring collection. I call it a collection since it’s not so much a series. This book is a stand-alone. This was a very fun, story to read. A real page-turner from the beginning to the end. Sabrina has reluctantly agreed to do a local reality showed called Who Wants to Marry A Doctor to raise money to build a new clinic so the children can be treated in town instead of sent to Jackson Hole. She is a single mother with a bit of a secret and a trust issue. Quinn is a bachelor that has no desire to settle down. Though his life is lonely he loves his job as investigative reporter and all the travelling he has to do for his job, a lot of times dangerous. He has just survive an explosion in Afghanistan and after he heals he plans to go back and finish his story. He is doing this TV show for something to do while he heals. I loved everything about this story form beginning to the end. I especially loved Sabrina’s sister Malora and the Dr. is in thing they do in the bar. (You have to read this!) I got excited every-time the bell rang! The dates were funny, the men she dated each were fun to watch play out! There are lots of twists and turn, some suspense and some hot sex. This book is a romance lover’s dream though I will say, towards the end of the book I was ready to wrap Quinn and Sabrina in duct-tape and toss em in a closet till they talked! I highly recommend this to all contemporary romance lovers out there! If you like a lot of drama, some hilarious comedy relief, cute kids, secrets, and hot sex this is for you!
Full disclosure - I'm an RWA chapter-mate of this author. That however does not affect my judgment about the book. COwboy (first book in the series) was okay, but the author really hit her stride with this book. I loved the bar with its bartender/psychologist (who really 'is' a psychologist, even if she doesn't practice). The pediatrician, Sabrina, was great both as a mother and a dedicated doctor. She agreed to do an entire show just to help raise money and is understandably devastated when things go awry, thanks to her attraction to the show's MC, Quinn (a journalist recovering from a wound abroad). Quinn ... ahh, I loved Quinn. Once he realized he screwed up on something, he was willing to go to any lengths to fix it. It's hard NOT to love a man like that. Overall, a fantastic book and I'm so glad I went for a second dose of Abigail Sharpe.
I read this for a buddy read and it kept me involved from the first page to the last. It reminded me of the feel of a small town. I actually picked up Ms. Sharpe's other book and cannot wait till I start it.
