Thatโ€™s what my ex said after our son was born, leaving me a single dad.

These days, my world consists of two things: Noah and my bar.
Until herโ€”the woman I want โ€”but can never have.
My exโ€™s sister wasnโ€™t supposed to be stirred into the mix.

Even though I try to push her away, my son falls in love with her.
As much as I want to keep my distance, I canโ€™t break his heart.

Lines become blurred, and fighting our attraction becomes nearly impossible.
Even though we know itโ€™s wrong, desire doesnโ€™t always fade away.
As soon as we cross that line, nothing will be the same and everything will fall apart.

This was a great read!! A great storyline, well written and super likeable characters. Cohen is a young, hot, single dad and half owner of a very popular bar. His ex left him right after their son was born and signed over all her rights and ran away with another man. To say Cohen has bitter feelings for her and her family is an understatement. He loathes them all…maybe.

When his son takes ill and has to be rushed to the emergency room, he is taken back to see his doctor. Jamie, the doctor, is his ex’s sister. He has not allowed anyone from his ex’s family to see or be part of his young son’s life. However, he has a soft spot for Jamie and always has. He has always had an attraction to her, but she was young and his girlfriend’s little sister. But on more than one occasion has he had the thought “what if I picked the other sister”.

Jamie, is a young successful ER doctor and there’s no love lost for her evil sister. She has a soft spot for Cohen…always had a crush on him. Now that she sees her nephew, her heart melts. It kicks off when she asks to be part of his life and Cohen has a tough decision to make.

It was so much fun watching these two deal with old, new feelings and a cute little five year old that draws them all together. Of course, there are a few bumps in the road that had me on the edge of my seat but I’ll keep those to myself. It is well written and I couldn’t put it down until I was done. I definitely look forward to any future books in this series.

Chapter One

Jamie Five Years Later

Nine hours down.

Three to go. Three hours until I can go home, finish that box of Thin Mints I shouldnโ€™t have bought, and binge-watch a show on Netflix.

Netflix and cookies. Netflix and single. Netflix and story of my life. โ€œTell me he finally agreed?โ€ Lauren, our charge nurse, asksโ€”referring to the appendicitis patient whoโ€™s been refusing an appendectomy all night.

I nod. โ€œAfter his wife promised to buy him a new TV.โ€ She scoffs. โ€œIโ€™d love to say someone being bribed to have life-saving surgery is a shocker, but after working in the ER for so long, Iโ€™m not easily shooketh.โ€

โ€œTell me about it.โ€ I glance around the emergency room. โ€œWhatโ€™s next for me?โ€ Itโ€™s been a slow night at Anchor Ridge Memorial Hospital, and as much as thatโ€™s a good thing, it can get boring.

She points down the hall. โ€œExam room three. Five-year-old with a fever.โ€ Her tone turns bubbly as she wiggles her shoulders. โ€œDad is super hot, by the way.โ€

I shake my head and tap my knuckles against the triage desk. โ€œIโ€™ll let you know if I need anything.โ€ โ€œAsk him for his number,โ€ she half-whispers with a thumbs-up. I roll my eyes and dismissively wave my hand. โ€œAbsolutely not.โ€ โ€œAll work and no play makes Jamie a grumpy doctor.โ€ โ€œYeah, yeah, yeah.โ€ I spin on my heel and walk to the room. The door is cracked, and I knock, snatching a pair of latex gloves on my way in. โ€œHello, Iโ€™m Dr.โ€”โ€ I stop, stumble back two steps, and cover my mouth with my hand. Holy crap. My body tenses, and as soon as my gaze meets his, his jaw flexes.

I struggle for words as anger and disgust line his face. Words Iโ€™d planned if this moment ever happened. Unfortunately, those words become a scared bitch and run away. โ€œCohen,โ€ is all I manage in a whisper. He stands tall from his chair, his narrowed eyes pinned to me, and moves to the side of the bed, blocking my view of the patient.

Laurenโ€™s words hit me. โ€œFive-year-old …โ€ My attention slides from Sir Pissed Off, and I shift to the left. โ€œOh my God,โ€ I whisper, gaping at the little boy in the bed. A little boy whose eyes are sleepy and nose is red and irritated. Those sleepy eyes, a walnut-brown with a slight slant, match his fatherโ€™s. The same with his thick ash-brown hair. But the dimple in his chin and heart-shaped face match hers. โ€œIs this …?โ€ My hand shakes when I point at him. Itโ€™s a dumb question. Even if he says no, heโ€™ll be a liar. โ€œWhat are you doing here?โ€ he repeats, his tone harsh. If I wasnโ€™t at a loss for words, my smart-ass self would throw out something along the lines of, What do you think, dumbass? Iโ€™m sporting a doctorโ€™s jacket with my name embroidered on it.

But I donโ€™t. Because I canโ€™t. Itโ€™s a challenge, wrapping my head around them being here, let alone dragging out my sarcasm. โ€œIโ€™m your doctor,โ€ I finally say before signaling to the boy. โ€œIโ€™m his doctor.โ€ Sound cool. Confident. Youโ€™re the fucking professional here, Jamie. โ€œWe want a different doctor,โ€ he hisses, his voice low enough so only I can hear. โ€œIโ€™m the only doctor on shift tonight.โ€ Iโ€™m speaking to Cohen, but the boy holds my interest. Heโ€™s watching this exchange, his eyes pinging back and forth between his father and me with curiosity on his tired face.

โ€œWeโ€™ll go to another hospital then.โ€ โ€œWhy, Dad?โ€ the boy whines, sniffling. โ€œI donโ€™t feel good, and what if I puke in the car?โ€ โ€œI want another doctor.โ€ His broad shoulders draw back. He raises a brow when I hold up a finger, turn, and scurry out of the room. I rush over to Lauren. โ€œCan you watch the boy in three for a minute? I need to talk to his father privately.โ€

She peeks up at me from her computer and tilts her head to the side. โ€œYeah … sure.โ€ Cohen is pacing the room when we walk in. โ€œA word,โ€ I say, jerking my head toward the doorway. Cohenโ€™s attention darts to the boy, and he delivers a gentle smile. โ€œIโ€™ll be right back, buddy.โ€ He gives him a quick peck on the head and swings his arm toward the door, his eyes cold. โ€œAfter you, Your Highness.โ€

Lauren throws me a curious glance when he walks past her, and I shrug as if this isnโ€™t about to be awkward city up in here.

As we leave, I hear Lauren asking the boy what his favorite cartoon is. Cohen keeps his distance while I lead us into a private room, the one reserved for breaking bad news to families.

I speak as soon as I shut the door., โ€œCohenโ€”โ€

Too bad he doesnโ€™t let me get more than his name out. Rude. His deep-set eyes level on me. โ€œThis is a conflict of interest, Jamie. The nurse can help us. We donโ€™t need you.โ€

โ€œWe donโ€™t need you.โ€ The memories of the last time he said those words to me smack into me like a headache. It was the last time I saw him. The last time he looked at me with the same resentment. Either he doesnโ€™t realize how hard his insult hit me or he doesnโ€™t care. I snort, anger biting at me. โ€œWhat do you think Iโ€™m going to do, huh? Kidnap him?โ€ โ€œConsidering who youโ€™re related to, who knows?โ€ โ€œWow.โ€ I clench my fists to hold myself back from smacking him in the face since his words are like a slap in mine. โ€œYou have some nerve.โ€

Itโ€™d make for some bad headlines if a doctor slapped a patientโ€™s father. Thereโ€™s no apology on his face when he holds up his hands. โ€œJust saying it how I see it.โ€ โ€œThen allow me to say it how I see it.โ€ I thrust my finger toward the door. โ€œYou have a sick son in there, and itโ€™s my job to treat him. Donโ€™t like it? I donโ€™t give a shit.โ€ I shove past him, stalk out of the room, and donโ€™t check to see if heโ€™s following me.

โ€œEverything okay?โ€ Lauren asks, her eyes glancing over my shoulder, and I realize Cohen is behind me, still keeping his distance.

โ€œPeachy,โ€ I chirp before approaching the bed and smiling down at the boy. โ€œWhatโ€™s your name, honey?โ€

โ€œNoah,โ€ he croaks. Even though I was sure it was him, my head spins at his confirmation. I tenderly squeeze his arm, and my tone turns cheerful. โ€œHi, Noah. Iโ€™m Dr. Gentry. Can I ask some questions about how youโ€™re feeling?โ€

He nods. Cohen stalks to the other side of the bed, his eyes on me, and Lauren migrates to the corner, her nosy ass interested in this shitshow.

โ€œHe has a fever,โ€ Cohen tells me, his tone softer. โ€œFor how long?โ€ He scratches his scruffy cheek. โ€œOver twenty-four hours.โ€ โ€œAppetite?โ€ He shakes his head. โ€œNot even sugar. I can hardly get him to drink, and he has no energy, which is very rare for him.โ€

โ€œCough?โ€ โ€œYes.โ€ His jerk attitude settles while we turn our attention to Noah. I ask question after question as I take his temperature and go through all the motions.

โ€œSymptoms tell me itโ€™s the flu,โ€ I say, removing my gloves and tossing them into the trash. โ€œWeโ€™ll do a test, and I also want to run some blood work to make sure weโ€™re not missing anything.โ€

Cohen nods. โ€œThank you.โ€ I smile at Noah. โ€œWeโ€™ll get you back to feeling good in no time.โ€ I give Lauren, whoโ€™s gathering supplies for the test, a head nod and leave the room.

Iโ€˜ll definitely be pairing wine with those Thin Mints tonight. Lauren comes scurrying into the doctorsโ€™ lounge ten minutes later. โ€œWhoa, what was that about? Dude was super nice to me but acted as if youโ€™d pissed in his Cheerios.โ€

Here goes.

A chill sweeps up my neck. โ€œThatโ€™s my sisterโ€™s ex … and her son … the ones she left.โ€ โ€œOh, Jerry Springer.โ€
