Come Closer by Brenda Rothert
Narrated by Lee Samuels and Leigh
Standalone Forbidden Romantic Suspense
WOW! Come Closer was my first Brenda Rothert book, but it won’t be my last! It’s a unique story, a forbidden romance and a romantic suspense all rolled into one and I loved it!
Dr. Daniel Delgato is a tattooed ex military doctor who took a job running a remote mental hospital in Montana because as an alcoholic, he needed to stay away from any and all temptation. The hospital has three different levels, including one for the criminally insane, and Dr. Delgato is a wonderful, caring physician to them all.
When the beautiful Allison Cole is committed, Dr. Delgato is the only one who connects to her. She hasn’t spoken since her sister was brutally murdered right in front of her.
“Daniel knows what I need without words, because that’s how he got to know me. He cared enough to learn my signals and read me.”
There was a magnetic connection between them, but of course, as her Doctor, neither acted on the attraction, but instead looked forward to a time when they could be together.
It is very much a slow burn romance, but I loved watching it build up.
“There’s something much more than that between us. This yearning doesn’t come so much from my body as from my soul. No man has ever looked at me this way—with such deep longing to have me just as I am. Even when I had a lot more going for me, I never felt as worthy as I do with Daniel.”
Then story became an awesome romantic suspense which I totally wasn’t expecting and LOVED!
- Completely unique storyline.
- A caring and wonderful Doctor.
- A slow-burn romance.
- I loved both characters and the supporting ones as well.
- Exciting and suspenseful.
- Twists and turns.
- Sexy and addicting.
- The title for some reason just feels too bland for this sexy, swoony adventure.
Lee Samuel and Kristen Leigh were both perfect. I will be looking for more from this duo.
