Krys Stevens is the best trauma doctor at Lakeside Hospital.
She runs the ER like a finely choreographed dance and her dedication to her patients makes up for the ones she cannot save. She’s got a small group of coworkers she calls friends and she’s a superstar at the free clinic where she volunteers. What more could an ambitious young doctor want?
One day, a patient arrives in the ER intubated with a ballpoint pen and changes everything.
Darcy is a combat medic, or she used to be. Her whole identity was wrapped up in the Army until she was injured and sent back to civilian life. After ten years away, there’s not much waiting for her at home, but she’s determined to rebuild her life so she starts going to meet-ups to make new friends.
That’s how she befriends the meet-up coordinator, and how she discovers he’s allergic to shellfish.
One creative intubation later and she’s following him to the ER where she meets the passionate, beautiful and untouchable Krys. She stops only long enough to give Darcy a piece of her mind, but that’s all it takes to know…
Darcy wants Krys to be in the life she’s building.
