SOMETIMES LOVE HAS BEEN THERE ALL ALONG…
Elly Vincent, second-year emergency medicine resident at Lakewood Medical Center, swore off romance years ago. Her only problem: her best friend and the man she has secretly been in love with since high school, Grant Reed, just happens to be in her residency program. When Elly and Grant are assigned to spend a month together on an EMS rotation, Elly knows working closely with Grant will reignite all the feelings she has tried for years to ignore. Things at the fire station heat up even more when a dashingly handsome paramedic makes his interest in Elly clear. Suddenly, Elly finds herself torn between her love for Grant and the possibility of a relationship with someone new, and Elly knows that before the rotation concludes, she must not only decide if she wants to pursue an EMS fellowship, she must also sort out the true feelings of her heart.
Grant shifts his gaze back to me, and as our eyes meet, I become extremely aware of how closely Grant and I have been sitting to one another while we’ve been filming. Every ounce of me is drawn to him, yet in what has become a well-practiced move over the years, I make myself lean back to put more space between us.
Grant blinks a time or two, and then he pushes away from the table. Getting to his feet, he twists his torso to stretch. “Anyway, it’s a good thing you’re such a natural teacher when it comes to medical topics, El. You’re great with this type of thing. The video would bomb if I was the only one doing the teaching.”
I’m about to disagree with him when Grant’s shirt rises slightly while he continues stretching, giving me an unexpected glimpse of his abs. His profoundly well-defined, chiseled abs. I gulp. My eyes get wide as I stare, and my respirations get kind of shallow.
I knew Grant was extremely fit, but . . .
Holy, holy smokes.I look the other way, resisting the urge to fan air past my face.
