Beautifully Awake by Riley Mackenzie
Prognosis: Beautifully Awake
Lili Porter hates the rain. Bad things happen in the rain. As a small town social worker dedicated to protecting children, she is forced to start over to escape her rural disaster. Determined to follow her father’s advice—head up and chin high—Lili finds herself in a new city, taking on a new system, this time healthcare. In doing so, she gets something she never expected, an intimate behind-the-scenes look at life in the hospital.
Lili learns that a surgeon’s hands have the power to heal more than physical wounds. And a prescription for truth can cure three years of sleep running and leave you beautifully awake.
Review by Wendy: Ok, Do Not Read this one if you cannot block out time for uninterrupted reading! As soon as I got started, my daughter got sick and I was only able to sneak a few pages here and there. It was torture! I was immediately drawn in to Lili’s story. Lili has moved to Phily to escape her small town life and start over. She is a case manager that rotates every month to a different area of the hospital. It’s the start of a new rotation in the neurology department and she is not looking forward to meeting the new doctor, as it is rumored he’s a jerk. From the moment she lays eyes on the hot Dr. Colton, she knows this is going to be a very interesting month. She cannot figure out his mood swings and for the first time in years is beginning to feel again, instead of just “sleep running” through her life. Their relationship runs hot and cold at the beginning. Either I was fanning myself from the hot sex or, I, like Jen, found myself growling at my Kindle! Hello, you two, get it together!! This is one that will not disappoint!
