Christmas is coming, but for ER consultant Mac Sullivan it's just another day. Since losing his wife two years ago, he's thrown himself into work and has no interest in serious relationships.
Enter Nurse Louisa Young, who brings warmth, sparkle and Christmas into his ER department. The question is: Can she bring it into his life, as well? Louisa's one Christmas wish is that maybe, just maybe, she can melt the ice that surrounds the gorgeous consultant's heart…
Sarah Morgan’s category romances have been hitting the spot for me lately, and it’s been awesome. They are quick, adorable, and I’ve always liked the characters. While The Nurse’s Christmas Wish by Sarah Morgan isn’t my favorite, it was still a great way to spend a few hours.
The Nurse’s Christmas Wish is about Louisa Young, who is an ER nurse and ER doctor Mac Sullivan. The ER is very short staffed, so Mac’s brother (who is also a doctor in the ER) asks his friend Louisa to move to the area and help out for awhile. Mac’s brother also invites Louisa to stay in his and Mac’s home for the time she’s helping out. Mac is quite surprised and not too happy about.
Louisa is utterly charming. She’s a fantastic nurse, and she’s also totally obsessed with Christmas. And she’s so happy to not be spending Christmas alone this year (she doesn’t have any family). But Mac isn’t really into Christmas, and he’s also not interested in getting involved with Louisa. Too bad he’s totally attracted to her.
I did so love Mac and Louisa together, even when Mac was being stubborn. But luckily they work things out and I was so happy about that. However, I did have some issues with the book. Mainly I didn’t like how Louisa wanted to make Mac’s life better from the moment she meant him. It was very unrealistic (not that I read category romance for realism) but I also found it a bit presumptuous of Louisa. Who is she to say his life isn’t okay. I will admit that I usually don’t like plots like that to begin with. And Mac did have some issues, but the whole idea of her just meeting him and deciding she would make his life better was a little odd. However, I think that’s the kind of thing we see in category romance.
But, even if with my issues, I did absolutely enjoy The Nurse’s Christmas Wish. It’s not my favorite, but it was completely satisfying. If you want a quick, holiday read, going for The Nurse’s Christmas Wish isn’t a bad choice.
