Daniel slid into his seat and away from Eric, but his arms remained tense. His brothers wouldn’t like this plan. He didn’t like this plan. “I’m to babysit the spoiled rich princess and keep her away from the cops and the alcohol, this trip.”
He pressed his lips together. He expected his brothers to have an opinion, but silence greeted his ears.
All eyes went back to the door.
His collar grew warmer. Daniel glanced around to stare in the same direction. He assumed Kate Sparrow had stepped into the club.
His eyes scanned the room, and then the crowds parted. He had his first look. Time might have stopped, and he heard his own heartbeat. Brown hair with a bit of a curl, brown eyes, small frame, unusually large breasts for a woman her size, and an energy that took his breath away. He also noted that Kate’s eyes held a gleam, and Daniel’s mouth fell open. Kate Sparrow was the most beautiful woman he’d seen in a long while.Beauty meant trouble. He turned back to his beer and refused to stare at her.
The pictures in the papers hadn’t done her justice at all. How did they turn that pretty woman into a viper with a camera? His mind raced. Did she have a Jekyll and Hyde personality that came out at night?
"Borrowing the Doctor" by Victoria Pinder. This is the second book of the series, and although I did read book one (Chaperoning Paris) and enjoyed it, it's not necessary to follow along. On that note, I have to admit that I was a bit disappointed with this one. For me, it was very confusing - I was never really sure what was going on. The flow of the story was choppy and jumped around. I didn't care for Kate too much - despite the false reputation she has, she is supposed to be sweet and naive yet I found her to be blunt and a bit abrasive at times too. Not exactly the picture of innocence. Daniel was better - being a sexy doctor looking to take care of her. I didn't quite get the connection between the two, especially with her hot and cold behavior. It took a bit to get through this one, I'm sorry to say. I enjoy Ms. Pinder and will certainly check out future books written by her, but unfortunately, for me, this one just didn't work. I think the storyline had promise but it just needed to flow better and have more closure to some of the questions that are asked throughout. (received copy for honest review)
