New Review! Before Girl by Kate Canterbary 4 Cranky Stars

Before GirlBefore Girl by Kate Canterbary
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4 Cranky Stars

Cal is a cardiothoracic surgeon. A very dedicated surgeon who really hasn’t had time to date, but he sees this one girl on the trail he has yet to gather up the courage to talk to. When the opportunity presents itself in the form of a crazy beaver (that she is adamant it’s a rabid racoonasaurus) that makes her trip and fall. He patches her up and they embark on a journey of awkward words and steamy touches. Cals only hang up is that Stella is a very independent woman with a color-coded calendar and several gentleman callers. He wants her for his own.

Stella prides herself on her life as a fixer for famous sports players. She swoops in and drags the players out of the proverbial hole and makes their lives better. She has a carefully planned life including running in the same place at the same time every morning. She isn’t looking for love nor does she have time for it. When a crazy beaver and a man brick collide into her life, she is unsure of how to proceed. She slowly finds herself cancelling on her gentleman callers and rearranging her life for Cal much to her own dismay.

I liked this story but there was something I couldn’t put my finger on that just made it ok. It was a very slow progress for Stella to realize that Cal was the one while he knew it from the first moment, he laid eyes on her. In Before Girl the roles are reversed with Cal being the shyer one and Stella being the aggressor in a way. They had very steamy sexy times and the story plays out well. I guess there was just something I couldn’t connect with when It came to Stella. I gave it a four because it is a good story and maybe it’s just me that couldn’t connect (gee how many times can I use connect) If you like role reversal, studly but shy doctors and women who think they have life figured out then this book is for you.
