#BookReview Healing Touch by Brenda Rothert


Title: Healing Touch

Series: Standalone

Author: Brenda Rothert

Genres: Contemporary Romance, Military

Release Date: 12 June 2018



She spends her nights treating patients, but Dr. Jocelyn Drake’s own wounds are unfixable. Her ex-husband and his younger, bouncier girlfriend work just a few floors away at Tulane Medical Center, and they serve as a constant reminder of what Joss lost. But a fierce determination to continue her research project and a shred of remaining pride keep Joss from transferring out of the Big Easy.
Carson Stephens recently returned from a tour of duty in the Middle East, and though willing women present themselves at every turn, his closest companion is loneliness. His night-shift work supervising the electrical and mechanical systems at the hospital is a perfect fit – it’s solitary work putting broken things back together.
When the electrical system on Joss’ floor goes haywire, she’s frazzled by the sexy electrician who sparks her dormant sex drive. He’s brooding and cocky – so not her type. But if Carson has his way, his hands will work their magic on more than just the wiring, and he’ll show Joss a night of passion that restores her shattered confidence.
But what happens after that night? As their relationship grows into something more, Joss and Carson face ups and downs, and they both realize that the healing has only just begun.

I had this book for quite a while and I’m seriously kicking myself for not reading sooner! It was really good!

Joss is an Obstetrician. Her husband left her a year ago for another woman, a nurse working in the same hospital as her. For the past year she’s been forced to see them together at work. Carson is an army veteran, working as an electrician in the same hospital. They meet each other when she asks for his help. The attraction between them is instant!!

Joss is insecure about herself since her husband left her. He really did a number on her and left her wondering what’s wrong with her. Carson has some issues of his own. His time overseas left him with demons he battles with everyday. Joss is the first person to make him feel again.

It was so interesting to see this two coming together. Both of them change because of each other. Joss learns to love herself and Carson decides to face his demons and become a better man for her. I felt their struggles and I was so glad to see them overcome their issues. Such a heartfelt story, full of emotions and two people that find each other at the best time!!
