I’m writing this letter because it’s highly doubtful I’ll ever garner the courage to say this to your face.
So, here goes.
We’re totally wrong for each other. You’re the proper single mum with a good head on your shoulders. I’m just the carefree British doctor passing through town and temporarily living in your converted garage until I head back to England.
But here’s the thing… for some bloody reason, I can’t stop thinking about you in very inappropriate ways.
I want you.
The only reason I’m even admitting all of this to you right now is because I don’t believe it’s one-sided. I notice your eyes when you look at me, too. And as crass as I appear when we’re joking around about sex, my attraction to you is not a joke.
So, what’s the purpose of this note? I guess it’s a reminder that we’re adults, that sex is healthy and natural, and that you can find me just through the door past the kitchen. More specifically, it’s to let you know that I’m leaving said door cracked open from now on in case you’d like to visit me in the middle of the night sometime.
No questions asked.
Think about it.
Whatever you choose.
It’s doubtful I’ll even end up sliding this letter under your door anyway.
Every time I considered leaving my room, I would grab the framed picture of Ben and stare at it. The urge to go to Simon was so strong; I basically hadn’t put down the framed photo of my deceased husband in an hour. I was lying in my bed, holding a picture of a dead man while fantasizing about one who was very much alive and in the other room. With the door cracked open waiting for me. There was one part of Simon’s note that I just kept reading over and over.
I want to make you come. Hard. I want you to get lost in me and I want to hear you say my name over and over while we fuck.
While we fuck.
While we fuck.
I was pretty sure that Ben had never used the word fuck like that before. Did we even fuck? We made love, sure. Our sex life was normal—at least, I think it was normal. Don’t get me wrong, the passion wasn’t the same as when we first got together. But after ten years, both of us working full time and raising a child, it was normal to have some of the desire dwindle, wasn’t it?
While we fuck.
I looked at the picture of my husband and sighed. We didn’t fuck. Not even in the beginning. And I felt guilty for that now. Maybe we should have been fucking. I certainly didn’t do anything to entice him to want me the last few years. Was it my fault our sex life had gotten boring? I rested the picture of Ben over my heart and laid my hand over it. I could feel my heart beating out of control beneath my fingers.
Shutting my eyes, I tried to force thoughts of Simon from my mind. But it was no use. Visions of his hard, sculpted body hovering over me had infiltrated my brain. So, here I was, a thirty-three-year-old, single mother lying in my bed all alone with a picture of my dead husband held to my heart while I visualized fucking another man.
Not making love.
I needed my head examined.
After two hours and no sleep in sight, I decided the only way I was going to be able to get any rest was if I got everything I was feeling off of my chest. Flicking on the light, I carefully set the framed photo of my beloved Ben on my nightstand and then opened the drawer and dug out a pen and piece of pretty stationery. I would write down my thoughts to clear my mind. I had no intention of actually giving the letter to Simon, so there was no reason to filter anything I said.
The Dynamic Duo… Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward have done it again and released another exceptional romance loaded with humor, emotional angst, and sizzling hot sex! Dear Bridget, I Want You is guaranteed to become another best seller!
It all begins in the ER with a sexy, dirty talking, British doctor and a patient with fishhook in her butt. That should be embarrassing enough but having the wrong day of the week underwear on and a smart mouthed doctor noticing takes the cake. Bridget is mortified but also very turned on. Thank God she had the foresight to go to a different hospital instead of the one she works in to take care of this embarrassing delicate mishap. She won’t have to see Dr. McHottie, Dr. Hogue again. Little does she know this is just the beginning of her adventures with this sexy doctor.
Bridget has reached her thirties and is a widow and single mother. She works as an ER nurse and struggles to make ends meet after the accidental death of her husband. Being a single,working mother of an eight year old boy is challenging. Trying to hold onto her home and give her son the same kind of life as he had while his father was alive is consuming. She doesn’t have time for herself let alone dating. She’s still grieving her husband and the life they once had. After two years her inner woman is beginning to awaken but she’s not quite ready to put herself back in the game. That is until the sexy doctor rents out her mother in law apartment and also joins the staff at the hospital she works at. There’s no escaping this dirty talking, fun loving doctor that has taken over her life.
Dr. Simon Hogue came to the United States to study medicine. He’s in his last year of residency before he returns home to England to begin his practice as a doctor. He’s dedicated his life to helping others and has a great bedside manner with all his patients. His great bedside manner extends beyond his professional life and all the ladies want the sexy doctor’s attention. Simon has no intention of settling down nor does he want children of his own. He has his future mapped out until he meets Bridget.
Their lives are on very different paths. Their futures are in different countries. Their passion for one another is undeniable. What begins as a fun flirtation turns into an emotional journey for all three of them. Life has a different plan.
Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward have once again delivered a magical romance that makes the heart beat faster and makes you swoon. I think all the readers are going to need Dr. Hogue to treat their romantic ailments. Don’t worry… the doctor is in and writing some very detailed, dirty talking prescriptions! Too bad our favorite little goat and Aussie vlogger didn’t hit the ER with their expert advice… it would of made this book perfect.
