Goodreads: There are things that are so hard to say aloud. Especially when it comes to something that you never thought your heart was capable of feeling…
In Ashton Bright’s life, there is no place for feelings. A successful surgeon, he knows how to make hearts beat faster, yet his own heart is as cold as a scalpel. He doesn’t know how to do romance, and he knows even less about love.
The day Nicola Holt comes to work as Ashton’s assistant, everything he believed was right for him becomes wrong. For someone whose everyday job is saving lives, Ashton finds himself too weak to stand against Nicola’s charm.
But most of all, he hates that she makes him feel things – the things he once swore to never allow himself to be submerged in.

When Ashton Bright's worst nightmares come true he dedicates his life to becoming the best surgeon he can be and save as many lives as possible.

That is ... until Nicola Holt is new assistant walks in to his office, the man who saves other peoples hearts now has to fight to protect his own.... but can he do it or will he end up having to face his past?
I took some time out from blogging while I was moving house and waiting impatiently for my laptop to get sorted and when I finally got it back couldn't wait to start blogging again. I have always enjoyed Diana's books and thought it was the best book to read to do my first review.
As always I loved this book. I love to read a book where the characters are clearly described so you can see the scene play out in your mind, and this book does just that. You can almost see the tension and interaction between the characters. The storyline is exciting and full of action and excitement from the very beginning - there isn't a dull moment!
I loved both of the main characters in this book, Ashton portrayed the strong, brooding 'man in charge' character with the soft inside just waiting to be saved. While Nicola is the determined, bubbly , free spirited character. Basically a perfect counterpart for Ashton.
If you are looking for a book that is clear , gripping and exciting with a touch of romance then you will really enjoy this book! There is not an extra word in this book that isn't essentially to the storyline meaning you aren't reading pages of 'fill in' bits every page builds to excitement and adds to the story.
I have read many of Diana's books and like the previous ones this one does not disappoint! 5*
