When ER Nurse Practitioner Joslynn Wright treats ex-NFL hothead Russ Green for a head injury, she is indignant that he can’t be bothered to fill out the discharge papers before leaving. She has only met Russ a few times, but confronts him at the restaurant he co-owns with their mutual friends.
Lately, he has been taking out his anger by bouncing unruly customers, which explains the bottle to the head that caused the ER visit. But her plans to give him the what-to are derailed when he asks her to dinner instead. She comes up with an exercise plan to help him deal with his anger, as Joslynn has been committed to staying healthy ever since a medical scare as a child. Even though Joslynn isn’t big on relationships, Russ finds a way into her heart. However, with the potential of inheriting the Alzheimer’s gene that has put his parents through hell lately, Russ questions if he can ever have a future with Joslynn.
A pleasant enough read that takes place in a city that is as big on heart as it is on music, James’ (Can’t Let Her Go) contemporary generates ample interest with the character’s medical plights and love for one another.
