Love on hold or "Love on Call" by Radclyffe

If you live a simple life like Winnie The Pooh then life is just a never ending line of today's. Day's spend enjoying the little things in life like the company of a good friend, a wholesome meal or whatever the day brings. Some might be able to live a mindful life like that, but most people need a promise of tomorrow.

If you wonder what it's like living without the promise of tomorrow, then look up Ex-Army medic physician-assistant Glenn in the ER at the Rivers Community Hospital. Marked by the uncertainty of life in a war zone and the loss of countless lives entrusted in her hands on the battlefield you'll find her prowling the ER day and night to help, to... well to take her mind of whatever dream chases her sleep away. Now don't worry Glenn is quite capable and doing a fine job of healing and teaching her talents to her physician-assistant students at the ER but there is more to life than just work and I think Glenn might just have lucked out now that Mari the new physician-assistant has joined her team.

Oh no life is never that easy, even if the attraction might seem to be more than just one sided something or someone are holding the reins of love quit tight you could even say someone is putting love on hold for awhile. I'm not going to tell you who and why, but it's reasonable to assume that it's not a situation making Glenn happy. Will it be resolved .... what do you think it's a romance, it's Radclyffe and Love is on Call, so I say keep calm and read on.

I admit that I have a thing about "medical romance" and Radclyffes writing so remember I'm biased when I say it's ok to venture out with "Love on Call" even if this is definitely not the best Radclyffe romance around. I prefer the stand alone romances with a longish storyline with room to put some flesh on the characters and create a believable timeline for the "falling in love and living happily ever after". "Love on Call" is a little to simple and short to fall in the category of "believable" if you ask me.

If you are new in the business of reading Radclyffe romance's then maybe you should try out "When Dreams Tremble", "Turnback Time" or "Night Call" these are among my favourites.

This is the third book in the Rivers series - the first being "Against Doctor's Orders" and the second "Prescription for Love". If you visited with The Rivers before You'll know of the family history and love lives of the Rivers woman, but I think that you can probably read "Love on call" on its own, it's after all just a simple romantic add on to the The Rivers storyline.

I'll leave it up to you to decide whether "Love on call" is where you'll spend your reading time and money. You should know that I was treated to a free copy courtesy of Bold Strokes Books.
