The Real Thing-Brenda Jackson

The Real Thing
Brenda Jackson
Harlequin Desire, Mar 4 2014, $5.25
ISBN: 9780373733002

Having a problem with her residency at Denver Memorial due to respected surgeon Dr. Casey Belvedere refusal to take her no as an answer to his advances, Trinity Matthews asks Adrian Westmoreland for help. She met Adrian and his family at the wedding of his cousin Riley (see One Winter’s Night). He agrees to act as her boyfriend.

As the couple pretends to be an entry, each finds increasingly a desire to make their sham relationship real. However, once she completes her residency, Trinity plans to return home to Bunnell, Florida to join her family’s medical practice. Although Adrian desperately wants her to stay with him as he believes what they have is The Real Thing; he knows reluctantly that he needs to encourage her to do what she wants.

The Real Thing is an entertaining contemporary romance starring two likable lead characters. The latest Westmoreland tale is fun as Brenda Jackson provides a warm, somewhat predicable storyline.
