His second chance is his only chance
Parker Drake wants exactly one thing—to fulfill his dream of becoming a doctor. Between his reputation as a rule-breaker and the six years that have passed since his first internship ended in disaster, he knows he’s only getting one shot at a second chance. He’ll do anything to put the past behind him and reach his goal…including work with the gorgeous ex-wife he’s never gotten over losing.
All work and no play make surgeon Charleston Becker a very happy woman. But when she’s tasked with mentoring her ex-husband through his second chance as an intern, her signature calm is put to the test. She’s not interested in re-hashing the heartbreaking circumstances that ended their marriage, and the six years that have passed haven’t made Parker less reckless. The last thing she’s willing to do is trust him—even if she does find him sexier than ever.
But familiarity breeds forgiveness, which then becomes a passion that threatens the careers Parker and Charlie have worked for. Can they turn their second chance into a happy ending? Or is history bound to repeat itself?
This steamy contemporary medical romance can be read as a standalone.
What a gem of a read this turned out to be! I’m such a sucker for second chance romances and Kimberly really tortures us with a bit of angst and tension as Parker and Charlie work their way back to each other. When Kimberly mentioned this book, she told me to think “Grey’s Anatomy, with being such a fan of a show ,until all my favorites started to die off, I knew I just had to read this book!
I was immediately sucked in from the very beginning and I was just eager to know what went down between these two. There’s obvious pain that’s laced between these two, but there’s definitely that deep-rooted passion that still holds strong for them.
Everything about these two is explosive and just constantly demanding your attention. It’s quite the dynamic where Charlie is the attending and Parker is the intern, when in the past they were both in the same position of being interns. We slowly learn what happened between them and that Parker quit his internship back then and left everything behind. But Charlie definitely had these steel walls up, so in present day she’s very much a stern doctor that is in a place that she doesn’t want to be at; Remington Medical.
With both of them being in a position that neither can avoid, there was a storm brewing and I wasn’t sure if I was emotionally prepared for it. It was absolutely heartbreaking to relive the story with them and I just hurt soooo much for the both of them.
I loved that Kimberly wrote their story so beautifully, there was so much heartache and pain, but seeing them healing together was something I was rooting for from the beginning. I’ll be honest, I was bit unsure about Charlie in the beginning, but the more the truth was revealed I became more understanding of her reasons and why Parker did what he did, back then.
Back to You is absolutely perfect and I loved every moment of their journey towards healing and eventually love. I am so on-board with this series, so I can’t wait for the next book.
Major thank you to Kimberly Kincaid for the reader’s copy!
