Charlie Wild knows how to score. On and off the field he’s been a force to be reckoned with since his father taught him how to throw a spiral in the back pasture of Wildhorse Ranch. But a recent injury calls into question his ability to play football and points a finger at his wild child reputation. He’s been given an ultimatum: overhaul his image by renovating his hometown hospital or get off the field.
The last thing Dr. Dylan Rose needs is yet another man telling her what to do and certainly not what to do with her hospital. She’d left Houston and the sports stars she’d fixed there, tired of watching big bulky men beat each other up for fun. So when Charlie Wild limps into her hospital she wants nothing more than to fix his hot body up and see that great ass walk out the door.
Charlie is taken by the sexy doctor. Her sweet smile hides a sharp tongue that he enjoys baiting just about as much as he loves kissing it. He’s on board for following her prescriptions and more than willing to teach her new ways to score in the sheets. But when it comes to the final seconds of this play he’s going to have to decide what is more important: The doctor he’s learned to love, or the game he just can’t quit…
Although there are a lot of books about hot arrogant sport jocks and their female sexy doctors, I still like reading them. And Healing the Quarterback is exactly that kind of book. Charlie is the arrogant football player, who gets injured and has to be fixed by a doctor. To recover, Charlie goes back to his hometown Lockhard Bend, to stay with his brother on the ranch.
When he asks a very pretty and sexy lady, where he could find his doctor, she surprises the hell out of him, by explaining she will be his doctor and by NOT swooning and drooling over him. In fact, Dylan seems to really despise him.
Well, that’s a first for Charlie. Women usually throw themselves (or their panties) at him. So Dylan is certainly a challenge for Charlie. But can he pinch through her armour? And why does she looks so familiar to him? While Dylan does her best to keep the relationship between her and Charlie strictly professional, Charlie is proving very persistent in getting to know her. But she doesn’t want to like the arrogant, womanizing and partying sportsman.
So, not only sparks are flying but also the hilarious banter between Charlie and Dylan. Will Dylan fall for his charms? Or will she remain the professional doctor, who will have to make difficult decisions regarding Charlie’s career?
Find out in this second part of the Wildhorse Ranch Brother series. Four out of five stars from me. With a thank you to Netgalley for providing the ARC.
