Everyone in Bell Harbor thinks career-minded plastic surgeon Evelyn Rhoades needs a husband. Everyone, that is, except for Evelyn . . . sort of. Even if she did want a husband (which she doesn't . . . most of the time), she'd never let something as intangible as fate determine who she marries. No, if she's going to find someone to spend her life with, she'll do it scientifically: with a carefully crafted list of criteria and an Internet dating site. But when intoxicated, law-breaking Tyler Connelly crashes into her life by way of a stolen Jet Ski, unruly emotions defy common sense. Sure, he's sexy, charming, and determined to win Evelyn's affection, but all evidence points to him being the worst possible choice. He's too young for her. Too irresponsible. Too underemployed. And, oh yeah, he's her patient. But Tyler knows firsthand how the best-laid plans can crumble under the weight of destiny. Now all he needs to do is to teach Evelyn that, in matters of the heart, love often supersedes logic.

Evelyn is turning the dreaded 35. She has spent years becoming a very successful plastic surgeon and now she wants to focus on another area of her life. Finding a husband. She puts together a pretty long list of qualities she is looking for in a man. 

Especially since her parents are divorced her view on relationships and romance is a bit cynical. The whole love and romance thing isn’t really high on her list of expectations.  Then she meets Tyler, who is a protective, sweet, romantic, and a little bit of a bad boy. Not to mention he is too young for her. Evie is pretty sure that Tyler is all wrong for her, but Tyler isn’t one to easily give up, and he is just as determined to prove that they are good together.

I loved the spark between them. They do have their differences, but they are also strong individuals and together they make a good pair. 

The Best Medicine was a funny and light-hearted romantic weekend read. Even though this is the second book in this series, it was the first book I have read by this author. I didn’t feel lost and I didn’t feel like I was missing anything big by not reading the first book. But having read this, I will definitely pick up book one in the future. There were lots of laugh out loud moments, and the romance between Evie and Tyler was fun and sweet.

RATING: 4½ out of 5.
