True North by Bethany Brown & Ashlyn Kane.

tn-ebookSmall-town engineer Jackson Strange has been clumsy his whole life, so when an accident at work sends him to the local clinic, it’s no big shock. The surprise is his magnetic, heated attraction to the enigmatic Julian Piet, a charming doctor with killer good looks who pulls Jack off his lonely course. Now that their paths have crossed, Jack and Julian head off in a new direction – but between Jack’s reluctance to be open about his sexuality and Julian’s shattered self-confidence, they can’t seem to decide what direction that is. It takes a push from Julian’s meddlesome sister to send them stumbling headfirst into romance.

Happily wrapped up in their fledgling relationship, Jack and Julian think they may have found their way when unexpected roadblocks appear on their path to forever. Wrathful storms, dangerous illness, family connections, and broken hearts threaten their tenuous balance. Will the trials send them spinning apart – their love scattered to the four winds? Or will Jack and Julian learn to believe and trust that together they can find true north.

How can you resist a man in scrubs? Years of watching ER, Chicago Hope and now Grey’s obviously has me well conditioned. heh.

This book starts with promise, two guys meet and are attracted to each other, always a bonus in a romance novel. Bit of the whole caretaker hero doing his taking care thing, it was good. I liked Jackson, he was sweet and had me imagining warm plaid shirts. Not sure why, just did! Julian is a nice foil of slender goodness with much fiesty sexiness. There is a beautifully described small town in winter, interesting secondary characters and it was nice and long. (long is good!) 

The only problems I had with the book were a few moments with awkward plot devices that had my suspension of disbelief working overtime. I also found some of the explanations about backgrounds and where the boys came from a little confusing, but the rest of the book read reasonably smoothly.

Despite these problematic moments I’ll be interested in seeing what their next book is like. It is coming soon from Dreamspinner Press in March. You can check it out here.

  1. This is the book I keep coming back too. I am a sucker for men in scrubs also. I am still soooo tempted to read it. Your reviews are usually spot on with me. Is this a book you would ever re-read again?

    1. Hey there Daisiemae, LOVE your profile fic, so cute!! As for re reading. You know, am not sure to be honest. There are very few books I re read. They have to be a 5 star read for me pretty much and something that I really click with. Have just re read JL Langley’s Tin Star and Broken H, she is definitely a re reader. 🙂
