Curing Doctor Vincent by Renea Mason
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I read this book as part of my Book Club so going into this book, I really had no idea what it was about. It was just our chosen book of the week that was gifted by the author for an honest review. So here goes...
Elaine is a PR person for a pharmaceutical company and the book kicks off with her hosting a speaking engagement. Unbeknownst to her, the formulator/creator of said drug is in the audience, Dr. Xavier Vincent. Elaine is both intrigued and surprised that he is in attendance and further that he invites her to celebratory dinner with his team. As personal tragedy and family history plagues her annually, Elaine flees the engagement and later in confronted by Dr. Vincent. He wants to get to know her and what plagues her, but she doesn't want to appear weak. Dr. Vincent accepts her explanation and they part ways.
Shortly thereafter, Elaine is called upon by the Vice President of the company and presented with an invitation to work with Dr. Vincent. Or so she believes....Dr. Vincent did more than create a revolutionary cancer curing drug, he is also a psychiatrist and recognizes a characteristic in Elaine that he wants to explore. ***No Spoilers*** In helping Elaine find peace with herself, will Dr Vincent also be cured of his demons? What agreement will they come to, or will all the pre-laid plans and rules be broken? This arrangement has nothing to do with her job and is given a once in a lifetime opportunity to explore herself for ONE WEEK then return to her life.
I enjoyed this book and look forward to the next installment. I am intrigued by Dr. Vincent's history and how that is going to unfold further. Im curious how Elaine's past will factor into this whole arrangement or if it was just backstory to create "issues" for her. I definitely want more of Marco and Sebastian!!! I hope they play further roles in future installments. The book was definitely steamy and I thoroughly enjoyed the Art History aspect of their interludes.
