Absorbing

Rating By R,14/02/2015

Just to confirm that the author of this book is Amy Ruttan. This is probably the author's best book to date - certainly the best since her debut novel. Both Nick and Jennifer are wonderfully human yet complex characters - you can dense the conflict within them - carrying scars and flaws from the past whom you can feel the connection between and are immediately rooting for. With a nice mix of medical and personal detail the plot is absorbing and fast moving with nice touches of humour. There were a couple of outcomes to aspects of the plot which I didn't agree with but that was just personal and I really found this an absorbing and satisfying read with a feel good factor at the end. Ten out of ten

Good story, strange word!

Rating By Lucy,08/05/2015

Really enjoyed this story, liked the Vegas setting and both the main characters. The medical drama was good, and the epilogue finished things off well. As for the strange word - Assystiline? It's the first time I've googled something and only got one hit! That's because it doesn't exist. I think the author meant asystole since she was doing a resus scene but odd that this got past the edits. Never mind, looking forward to Amy's next story.

Keeping out of the spotlight is never easy for any celebrity. It's and endless street of diving into odd little shops when you see anyone pull out a camera and dressing down to try and hide out. In this read from Amy Ruttan we meet senator's daughter Dr. Jennifer Mills, and for her it is just as hard to keep out of the spotlight as it is for Julia Roberts! Especially after being jilted at the altar by her ex-fiance, guaranteed that's a front page head liner that no one will ever forget. So when arriving in Las Vegas, she's just hoping to blend in. Ha ha ha, everyone and anyone knows that 's never how it works in the city of flashing lights and big time spenders. She meets ER surgeon Nick Rousseau, the same man she spent an unforgettable night with three years earlier. Now returned from Afghanistan, ex army medic Nick is struggling to come to terms with his time on the front-line. Rekindling his romance with Jennifer reminds him that some things in life are still worth fighting for. This was a truly stunning story about two damaged people finding new hope after life has shown them the type of things that are sure to break even the strongest of hero's and heroines in the world. The story was easy to read with a nice even flow and the nice little add on of a little twist here and there that sent the read from even flow to " Wow, did that just really happen?". The character of Jennifer was pretty much as damaged are heroine's can be, the tough life of trying to stay out of the spotlight and trying to get over the hurt and embarrassment of being jilted at the altar. But being damaged as much as other heroines are in these kind of reads did not make her ordinary or boring, in fact she was a breath of fresh air, fun and little too flirty for someone that has to stay out of the spotlight so that her senator father does not end up with more egg on his face then his plate. Nick was the tortured hero that I simply just wanted to hug and tell that everything will be okay as long as he does not give up. The author has once before shown her remarkable talent for showing the true hell and torture those that face war zones have to learn to live with. And oh my gosh he was sexy as hell! I could literately eat this man up! His back and forth battle with his troubled and clearly tortured soul shattered my heart and I cried my eyes out for this hero. I am taking away a message of life knocks you down, sometimes so hard that the ability to get back up seems like a lost cause. But is it really the end of the line? Just as life shows you the cruel hard stuff it will also show you how to get back up, all you need to do is be open to the light that filters through and never ever think staying in the dark and blocking out the sunshine is what you deserve. 5/5 star review " She needs rescuing but what will happen when her hero is the one that needs the rescuing? Is she up for the challenge? "

INTENSE.

Amy Ruttan writes with unique, free flowing ease. Her newest romance, IT HAPPENED IN VEGAS, is a masterful narrative. With characters that are flawed and genuine, this story is sure to tug compassion from your soul. It is fascinating to be at the center of it all as the romance unfolds and it is more fascinating to be with the characters every step of the way as they reach their deserving and fulfilling HEA. Jennifer Mills is a breath of fresh air and Nick Rousseau is one hell of a hunky, medical heart-stopper! Amy Ruttan makes this simple plot hers by adding an edginess and dramatic flair to the story that gives it its sparkle. Most Definitely Recommended to all lovers and fans of medical romances 5/5 Stars
