Summary

Dr. Kimberly Donovan's life is in shambles. After her medical ethics are questioned, first her family, then her closeted lover, the Chief of the ER, betray her. Determined to make a fresh start, she flees to California and LA Metropolitan Hospital. 

Dr. Jess McKenna, LA Metro's Chief of the ER, gives new meaning to the phrase emotionally guarded, but she has her reasons. 

When Kim and Jess meet, the attraction is immediate. Emotions Jess has tried to repress for years surface. But her interest in Kim also stirs dark memories. They settle for friendship, determined not to repeat past mistakes, but secretly they both wish things could be different. 

Will the demons from Jess's past destroy their future before it can even get started? Or will LA Metro be a place to not only heal the sick, but to mend wounded hearts?  

Contains mature themes.

Ylva publishing does it again

I don’t think there’s a book I’ve read from this publisher that I dont love.

RJ Nolan is a author that Is new to me and I absolutely loved this book. The story line and main characters are amazing. Jess and Kim’s journey from friends to lovers is a lovely loving journey to go on. The ghosts of the past they deal with are hard and emotionally raw. Fabulous writing and I can’t wait to finish the rest of the books in the series and anything else this author has written

enjoyed!

I enjoyed the story line of this book. Jess has a secret that holds her back from getting to know Kim,as they both work the ER. Not a lot of steamy sex in this book but the story line is enjoyable. I will listen to this audible book again at a later date because I liked it so much!

Spectacular story of reclaiming your heart.

This book just touched so many emotions. Really amazing professional woman who have been kicked by patriarchy at its worst. Perhaps it is true that time heals but Kim and Jess needed each other to find a healing future. Angela Dawe brings everyone to life, even little Tara who grabbed my heart. The dialogue was openly challenging and very wity but raw at times. The relationship built by the main characters is strong and embraces all of live. I love this R.J. Nolan and will be reading more of her work.

Don’t bother

Seriously-don’t bother. The secondary voices speaking-what they were really thinking was annoying. Just plain not worth listening to

LA Metro major success!

LA Metro is a wonderful, romantic, book that catches your attention from the first sentence on. The characters are strong and believable and the romance between them is steamy!
I have been a fan of RJ Nolan for many years and have consistently been impressed with her writing.

Fabulous Medical Romance

L.A. Metro is a wonderful medical romance between Doctors Kim Donovan and Jess McKenna. RJ Nolan spins a fabulous tale through a tenuous friendship, working through past painful relationships, and dealing with the crazy life of a metropolitan hospital and its politics to forge a lasting love. Angela Dawe brings the story to life. I'm excited to read the rest of this series.
