A smile she could never forget!
Stepping into West Manhattan Saints, Dr Tessa Camara is stunned to discover the hospital’s new orthopaedic surgeon is Dr Clay Matthews — her ex! Four years apart did nothing to extinguish the fire between them, but she has never forgiven Clay for his betrayal…
Clay still doesn’t know why Tessa ended their relationship. And with his adorable little daughter, Molly, to consider, he doesn’t have time for Tessa’s independence issues. But resisting the passionate Brazilian woman, who once stole his heart, is easier said than done!
Tessa has more pride than most, and more than is good for her. She is determined to survive and flourish without any help from anyone, and her prideful nature is starting to hurt her possible future happiness.
Clay made a mistake when brokenhearted after Tessa left her over four years ago. Determined not to repeat the past, he wants to keep his distance from Tessa.
But the martial arts Capoeira director and hospital administrator has other thoughts, and soon Clay and Tessa are dancing around each other, while preparing for the Capoeira exhibition.
Clay is dedicated doctor, and caring father. He is generous, kind and giving, a combination Tessa has a problem with.
I wanted to shake Tessa several times, because of her stubborn, prideful nature. Who survives medical school without scholarships, or gets internships without recommendations? Tessa, so smart and kind otherwise, seemed to be holding on a foolish pride. She had lots of inner inflection to be done, to realize some basic matters. It takes a drastic event to open her eyes, and her heart.
The story is an interesting mix of hospital world and work, the Capoeira culture, and passionate romance rekindled between Clay and Tessa
