My Book Review:
The Infertile Heart is a heartwarming medical / sports romance tale about life experiences, new beginnings, and second chances.
Author BK Harrell weaves a wonderful romance set in Atlanta, Georgia, that follows the chance meeting of Dr. Lincoln Montgomery and Dr. Nicole Harris. Lincoln and Nicole's unexpected connection will lead them on a journey towards rebuilding their lives, and getting a second chance at finding love. You can't help but become captivated by this engaging story filled with the challenges of overcoming traumatic pasts, dark secrets, family drama, life struggles, misunderstandings, and small sacrifices, as Lincoln and Nicole take a chance at forming a bond that could teach them how to love again.
I would be remiss if I didn't mention how much I enjoyed the nice mixture of the medical and college football sports romance themes. The intriguing romantic twists and turns easily kept me engaged and guessing, while the rich descriptions of the college football games that were included in the story kept me thoroughly entertained. What a great first book in a brand new series, I can't wait to read the next book!
In The Infertile Heart, broken hearts and traumatic life experiences can be put in the past when given a second chance at love through the healing spirit of this touching and soul-stirring medical / sports romance story.
The Infertile Heart is the first book in The Doctors of Atlanta Series.
