I’m Dr. Nick Raines.
Brain surgeon and notorious over-thinker, I take the analytical approach with everything, until I can determine the best, carefully calculated plan of action. It’s no shock the producers of the popular reality series The Doctor Is In have decided to call me Dr. Neurotic.
Besides my more than full-time job as Chief of Neurosurgery at St. Luke’s Hospital, I’m a single dad and my number one priority is my daughter.
But life had plans to add another priority to my list.
Charlotte Hollis. Outspoken, impulsive, and beautiful, she’s everything I didn’t know I was craving.
She makes me wonder What if?
What if I don’t have to be alone for the rest of my life to give my little girl the father she deserves?
It’s a battle—my battle: Head vs. Heart.

With a quick smack and a groan, I silenced the alarm and rolled over to my stomach to shove my head into the fluff of my pillow.
“Oh my God,” I grumbled.
Even the sound of my own voice was grating.
Great, I thought. This should make work interesting.
I grabbed my phone off of my nightstand, rolled back onto my back, and typed out a quick message.
Me: So, apparently, you’re a sadist.
A reply popped up nearly immediately.
Me: I’m actually sore.
Charlotte: It takes time to acclimate to the dance life. You’ve got good moves, though. Be proud, soldier, be proud.
Me: Oh, so I suppose you’re completely fine?
Charlotte: Yep. 😉
Me: I kind of hate you.
Charlotte: That wears off. Trust me. Pretty soon you won’t be able to live without me.

I was waiting for Nick Raines’ story. What a way to introduce properly, as a single dad and neurosurgeon, he was dragged by two of his coworkers for a reality show about their work. If you’ve read the first books, you know that anything goes the way it should be.
For the ones who have read Max Monroe’s book, you’ve heard about him and the choices he made. I had to admit that I didn’t have a great memory of him. After reading it, well, I couldn’t not appreciate this character. Dedicated to his precious daughter and his work, he haven’t planned to meet the feisty and colorful Charlotte, who literally turned his world upside down.
As usual you have the authors’ touch with the humor and hilarious situations, the mix of sweetness and hotness. I was really surprised by Nick’s character. Obviously not mature when he became a father, having bad decisions and might be seen as a selfish man, he wasn’t. I had a great time to see him redeem and acting like a man, trying his best to make his daughter happy, be the father she deserves.
In between, love got in the way. Once he set his eyes on Charlotte, all bets are off. I enjoyed his interactions with her, her craziness and firecracker side matching so well with his serious and very safe side. They made a great pair, I had fun with their story, even if it was less wild than the others, but nonetheless equally fun and diverting. It was a great addition to the series and I was really glad to read more about Nick and see how he learned from his mistakes. His battle: head against heart was definitely worth it.
