Critical Care by Candace Calvert
After watching her brother die in the ER Claire has no desire to ever work in the ER again. She tried, but it was too soon and an uncaring doctor called her a "weak link" and now that has crippled Claire for ER work.
Logan, Dr. McSnarly to the nurses, has no patience for nurses who can't keep it together on the job. Logan has no need for God in his life. After all, God refused to answer his prayers as a child so why should he need him now? The only problem is that Logan is miserable. He has run off almost every ER nurse he has worked with because of his harsh attitude, his marriage ended in divorce, he has the reputation of being uncaring, and he has no need for counciling that the hospital offers after a tragedy hits.
Claire is brought in to assess the ER staff after a particularly gruelling day in the ER. When she meets Logan the sparks fly! Claire sees a side of Logan that he has never shown at the hospital. Will they both learn that God's plans are so much better than theirs?
Like Claire, at first I didn't care for Logan! But also like Claire he grew on me! I loved his more vulnerable side and I definitely loved the peeks of humanity and caring that he showed to his patients in the hospital. The spiritual aspects of the book were also well done. Claire and Logan's different struggles with God and how He helped them overcome those struggles were definitely true to life experiences. I liked the secondary characters in the story as well. We read Erin's story in the next book DISASTER STATUS, which I read years ago so may have to read again! The ER activity was exciting and the romance between Logan and Claire was sweet. I enjoyed CRITICAL CARE. If you are a fan of medical romance stories then this will suit you perfectly!
