Book: Avoiding Amy Jackson
Author: N A Alcorn
Genre: Contemporary Romance (humour)
Meet Amy Jackson. An outspoken, raunchy, in-your-face, loudly inappropriate ER Nurse who makes a career out of indulging.
One-night stands have always been her thing. Commitment and relationships are two words that are not in her vocabulary.
Amy doesn't have dreams of soul mates and white picket fences.
She adamantly refuses to even consider the idea of getting married and starting a family.
She’s also obstinate in allowing a certain physician to get on her good side… James Williams.
A cocky, smug, too-damn-good-looking orthopedic surgeon who has his sights set on the very feisty Amy Jackson.
He is more than intrigued and ready to do whatever it takes… “I want this woman.
I’m the type of guy who will fight for what he wants until he gets it. I will take my time with Amy.
I won’t rush her.
I will continue to slowly slide myself into her life until she realizes that I belong there.
And then…I won’t let her go.”
This is Book Two in The Infamous Series.
5 of 5 Amy & James
Okay so I have to admit this book is off the hook! I loved every minute of it and I could not put it down. Dam Amy is feisty and rude and snarky all wrapped up into one. She is a fiery girl who knows what she wants when she wants it and she gets it. With every page she lit it up and had me laughing so hard at times because she was determined to do things her way.
Amy is an ER Nurse who is no nonsense girl on her job and in her personal life. She is surrounded by all these gorgeous doctors and her motto is hit it and quit it. Amy does not do relationships and she definitely does not do commitments. Those two words to her are the devil and she is having none of it. Why do those things when you can have any flavor you want with no strings attached? That is until she bumps into the gorgeous Orthopedic Surgeon James Williams.
James Williams is sex on legs. Good God he is gorgeous and he is a surgeon. He has a brain not just muscles. He sees the feisty little fire cracker Amy and knows he has to have her. He needs her and wants her in every way but he also knows he will have to fight for her in order to win her over. He knows that she doesn't do relationships but he is willing to put in the work in order to have her.
James is patient and bids his time for Amy but will that be enough for Amy to change her mind? Will she open her heart to this man for more than a one off?
I raise both of my hands up in the air. “All right, I’m out of here before you two start going at it in front of us.” I head for the door and stride into the hallway. I make it halfway to my room before strong arms pull my body back into a masculine, warm chest. The scent of James clings to my nostrils, and I can’t help the shaky breath that escapes my throat.
Peppermint and cedar and clean laundry.
“So that’s how it is? You’re just going to leave me with those two?” James whispers into my ear. Pieces of my dark locks blow away from my face.
“You got it, and I’m finding a hell of a lot of enjoyment out of it, too.” I close my eyes and fight the urge to turn into his embrace and kiss the daylights out of him.
James runs his fingers up and down my arms, creating a path of chill bumps. “It’s been two months. How long are you going to hold that night against me?”
I swallow against the dryness in my mouth, trying to gain some semblance of a hold on the sexual frustration that’s coursing through my veins. “Forever.”
James laughs into my hair and rubs his nose back and forth against my neck. “You can keep making these weak threats, but I’m just going to tell you one thing. They aren’t scaring me into giving up. I’ll keep trying, doll. I’ll keep trying until you can’t resist me and my persistent charm”
Persistent charm? Pffft.
I step away from his embrace and turn to face him, his green eyes filled with heat, intensity, and an overpowering amount of raw, sexual pull. I take a much-needed breath. I need to force air into my lungs and gain at least an iota of defiance and pride. “I never make weak threats, Dr. Limp Dick.”
“Dr. Limp Dick?” The jerk smiles at me—fucking smiles at me—and it feels like a slap across the face. The nickname has zero effect on him. It doesn’t put a dent in that ego-filled suit he seems to don with an impressive amount of confidence.
“Yes, Dr. Limp Dick. I think that name suits you well. Extremely well. Don’t you agree?”
“The fact that you even took the time to come up with that tells me one thing…” He pauses, obviously waiting for my stubborn pride to chime in.
“What exactly does it tell you?” I spat out, my irritation rising to new heights.
“That you’ve been thinking about me. A lot. Don’t worry, baby. I’ve been thinking about you too.” He leans in close, too close, and it feels like all of the oxygen has been sucked out of the room.
Anger courses through my bloodstream, my heart pounds loudly in my chest. Thump. Thump. Thump. My pulse sounds magnified inside of my ears. How can one man find a way to make me so infuriated? I hear a loud smack echo in the hallway and realize that my fury has now pushed me over the edge. I just smacked James clear across the face; a faint red handprint remains on his cheek. He lifts his hand and lightly rubs his jaw before grinning back at me.
“Beautiful and feisty. Now I’m really never going to give up,” he adds, completely unaffected.
“You’re such an asshole!” I shriek back at him before turning on my heels, stomping towards my bedroom, and slamming my door shut. I lean up against the wall and sigh loudly in frustration, my fists clenched tightly to my sides. What a prick! I mean, who in the hell does he think he is?! My breath is fast and hard, and my chest heaves up and down violently. I see my reflection in the mirror across from my door and can’t ignore the prominent outline of my nipples visible through my shirt.
