(I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review).
(This review may contain spoilers).
I was definitely drawn into this book from the start. I found Sean to be a really interesting character and even though I did feel that the romance moved a bit too fast, I still quite enjoyed his reactions with the other characters.
I was particularly fond of Nique as a character, though it was a bit tiring to keep being beaten over the head with how attractive she was. The banter she and Sean shared was amusing and it was really good to see a nice, platonic relationship between a man and a woman.
I was really impressed with how much medical knowledge was in this book without being overwhelming. I felt like a part of the world of the paramedics and I now have a whole new respect for them and what they have to deal with.
It was nice to see a book stick to one first person perspective. It was quite good to see things from Sean’s perspective, though there were times that I felt he was a bit contradictory. At the same time, he came across as a fairly likable character and I liked the fact that he did his best to heal people as much as he realistically could.
Sean’s lack of memory was a bit confusing at first through the book, but it eventually made more sense as the plot moved on. I found what he did remember of his past interesting and it was cool to read the little asides to events in his past, even if I would have liked a bit more detail about it.
I found Sean’s views towards the patients he treated quite interesting ones, particularly those who he knew would go back to doing what got the paramedics called in the first place. I’m not sure I would want to continue helping someone who refused to even try to change.
I liked Pete in this book, too, though I would have liked to see a bit more of some of Sean’s other colleagues. There were some instances of humour in this book, but not as much as I thought there might be from the blurb.
I would probably read a sequel to this book, or more books by this author, in the future. This was an entertaining read with characters that seemed real. It also had a proper ending, which is always good.
