You are reading page 2 of New nursing novel. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

Read Sanford and Davenport ages ago and outgrew the style. Read all King's books and really am searching for someone else like him. Cree Black's books were okay.

I have never felt the scary aspects of King's books. Just love his character insights and developments.

It took me ages to convert to e readers but I would find it hard to read a real book now. I have about 20 books on the go via e reader all the time now. It's just better, I think.

Stephen King has made an interesting resurgence in recent years - his work has become more introspective but still scary as heck! My most recent favorite is Dr. Sleep.

I love Jack Reacher but hate Tom Cruise in the role. I tried to watch "Never Go Back" Last night and go about half way through before I had to turn it off.

You might like John Sanford books Lucas Davenport and Virgil Flowers characters are terrific. With Davenport You almost have to start from the beginning and there are something like 20 books. Virgil Flowers is a stand alone series that came out of the Davenport Series.

I am a published author did some short stories and poetry in the 1980's. I have been toying with a new thing for about two years but have yet to sit down and do some serious writing recently.

Hppy

Well, I'm glad to read that someone has issues with Tom Cruise. (Have you been watching the Leah Remini's show on Scientology?)

Leah Remini says Tom Cruise thinks she's 'the devil' and claims Hollywood star 'is very well-aware' Scientology is 'defrauding people' | Daily Mail Online

I'll take a look at the other authors. Just not the author of the OP's recommendation. :sarcastic:

Warning, extremely steamy! Also very interesting.

Aren't all those nurses' romance novels that way?

Agree, just in case the OP is intending to sell her book, rather than discuss books in general.

This advice is for the author: When it comes to books I am picky! Race was the first thing I focused on when reading that little snippet. I personally am sick of hearing about race, race relations or relationships in this country. PERIOD. Like up to my eyeballs sick! Also, I've read my share of erotica, usually people are described, even in the synopsis...the books I've enjoyed usually don't jump straight to beautiful blonde and British Indian. They describe and qualify the person, and I personally love descriptions much more. For example tell me about the woman ...Zoe is a new nurse on the unit who walks with purpose, her tall feminine physique hardly goes unnoticed, her deep blue eyes cannot hide behind her long vanilla blonde lashes, etc. Always qualify the person, and then what's with whole reg nurse thing. Why not just say Nurse? Now Looking inside the book from the previews it looks like it might be interesting. But the synopsis killed me.

.

That novel (minus your witty additions) is of the genre I was thinking about when I read the title of this thread.

Just read this new novel about a nurse's romance on Amazon called Andrea's Story: A Tale of Modern Passion and Obsession. Has anyone read it and what do you think? Really would like to know what people thought of it? Warning, extremely steamy! Also very interesting.

Hmmm...

The only novel I could find even close in title seemed a little innocuous.

Never read an erotica book in my life until this one and the author seems to use the erotica only to convey her feelings for this man. It has more history, philosophy and travel and personal perceptions. Also the perceptions of both families, which is what I found interesting.

I thoroughly enjoy erotic lit - but I get mine for free on a website made just for that.

I'm currently reading Stephen King's The Stand for the 4th or 5th time - just love that book. I'm a voracious reader and I'll read just about anything. I like historical fiction, horror, mystery, detective/police, etc. Harlan Coben writes one of my favorite series - Myron Bolitar. The best book I've read this year was The Nightingale - it was such an amazing story.

I could talk books for days.
