As a midwife running her own home birth practice, Audrey Novak deals with pressure like a superhuman. Until, that is, she meets her handsome and arrogant neighbor, Dr. Ammon Parker. Ammon, who believes only in modern medicine, is just as unprepared for the infuriating—and inconveniently beautiful—midwife. When the two are repeatedly called to the same labor and delivery unit, their clashing ideals and fiercely independent personalities threaten to derail both their professional goals and their pride.
Outside of work, Audrey is a passionate rock climber, tantalized by a secret route she’s heard about in an online forum. Her hunt for the climb’s location leads her to the intriguing BelayingonofHands, a man who claims to have set the route. Soon their anonymous virtual flirtation and witty exchanges deepen into a true connection. But when Audrey discovers the man from online is actually Ammon, she’s blindsided. It seems they have more in common than she could have imagined, but will their differences keep them from making the climb to true love together?
My thoughts: I almost didn't stick with this book, but I am so glad that I did! Audrey is instantly drawn to the good looks of her new neighbor, until he sticks his foot in his mouth and shows that they are on very opposite sides of childbirth with their professions. This story has some You've Got Mail vibes, while being original and delightful! I'm passionate about women knowing their rights when it comes to childbirth, and having the best experience possible, so I really loved that aspect of this book. This is an enjoyable rom com to pick up!
I received this book from Covenant Communications. This is my honest review.
