Tattoos don’t define a person’s character, or make him sexy. But if you ask Sam Madison, they sure don’t hurt.
Dr. Travis Nelson has a passion for ink but keeps his many tattoos covered by long sleeves and trousers. He’s aware that as a pediatrician he’ll be judged not only by the other physicians in his practice, but also by the parents of his young patients.
When Sam Madison takes his young nephew, Levi, to be seen for an ear infection, he’s immediately attracted to Travis and the feeling is mutual. But Sam’s sister Melanie is going through a rough time and caring for Levi, and covering her obligations, keeps Sam occupied. He feels like he’s in no position to start a relationship.
Travis sees things differently, though he’s unable to truly understand the deep bond and connection Sam shares with his twin. As Melanie’s life goes from bad to worse, Sam is forced to make difficult decisions. Is protecting Levi enough of a reason for the two men to stay together, or will fighting for the child ultimately tear them apart?
This book caught me off guard with how much I enjoyed it, even though it was so short. The attraction between Sam and Travis was just amazing and off the charts. I loved watching as they tried to figure out their relationship, and how it would work out between the two of them.
The only thing that I did have an issue with was how controlling Travis was. It was quite a bit uncomfortable at times because he would completely take over everything about Sam and Levi’s lives.
But, even taking that into consideration, I still enjoyed the story line and everything that was going on in the story. Travis’s character was very touch and go for me personally. I liked him, but didn’t love him. However Sam’s character was one that I was able to connect with completely.
I do want to give the author complete props for the way they portrayed the drug issues with Melanie and how it affected everyone around her.
Overall, I did enjoy this book and I will be sure to look for more from this author in the future.
