Review: Instant Gratification

35778567From the back of the book:


Wishful, California, is 3000 miles from Dr. Emma Sinclair’s last job in a New York City ER. IT may aw well be another galaxy. Here, running her father’s clinic for a summer, Emma treats bee stings, stomach flu, and the occasional pet cat. Plus, she has to contend with patients like Stone Wilder: gorgeous, laid-back, and irritating beyond belief. The man laughs at her. A lot. And Emma loathes him. All except that tiny part of her that wants to throw him on her examining table and break every doctor-patient rule in the book…

When Stone tries to help Emma learn to loosen up a bit, he pictures white-water rafting or scenic mountain hikes. Not a mind-blowing affair that shakes them both to the core. Emma’s sure she has no place in a town like Wishful, but Stone knows different. Emma belongs here – in this town, in his life. And convincing this strong-minded, stubborn, sexy woman of that fact will be a challenge no Wilder man could resist…

I love Jill Shalvis, everything the woman writes is perfect. I bought Instant Gratification when it came out and then lost it. Last week when I was cleaning and setting up my new desk I found the book. I immediately started reading it and read the whole thing during an extremely long doctors appointment. I found it fitting that I was reading a book about a doctor while at the doctor. Emma is my kind of girl. She doesn’t like the outdoors and is lost without take-out. She is transplanted into the middle of nowhere and cannot wait to get out, until she meets Stone. Stone is a manly man, who also has a sensitive side and helps those around him without taking any credit for it. I loved both characters and their combative relationship is both funny and sweet.  I especially like how he tries to make her relax and love the scene where he writes her instructions on how to relax step-by-step.  There is an appearance by TJ, Stone’s brother, and I can’t wait to read his story. Instant Gratification is a fantastic book!

the book girl gives INSTANT GRATIFICATION a 5/5!
