Instant Gratification - Jill Shalvis (Brava - July 2009)

Series: Wilder Adventures (Book 2) 

In Instant Attraction, Jill Shalvis introduced Cameron, Stone, and T.J.--the sexy, daredevil brothers who run Wilder Adventures. And for Stone Wilder, the thrill of a lifetime is about to arrive in a surprising package...

The Doctor Is In Deep

Wishful, California, is 3000 miles from Dr. Emma Sinclair's last job in a New York City ER. It may as well be another galaxy. Here, running her father's clinic for a summer, Emma treats bee stings, stomach flu, and the occasional pet cat. Plus, she has to contend with patients like Stone Wilder: gorgeous, laid-back, and irritating beyond belief. The man laughs at her. A lot. And Emma loathes him. All except that tiny part of her that wants to throw him on her examining table and break every doctor-patient rule in the book...

When Stone tries to help Emma learn to loosen up a bit, he pictures white-water rafting or scenic mountain hikes. Not a mind-blowing affair that shakes them both to the core. Emma's sure she has no place in a town like Wishful, but Stone knows different. Emma belongs here--in this town, in his life. And convincing this strong-minded, stubborn, sexy woman of that fact will be a challenge no Wilder man could resist...

Fun book.  Emma really doesn't want to be there.  She misses the city and all it has to offer.  She misses her busy ER.  She doesn't understand how her father can run his practice the way he does.  When Stone comes to the clinic with injuries that he insists all he needs is band-aids for, she doesn't give an inch.  She insists on treating him, and doesn't let his flirting get to her.  He sees how uptight she is and takes it as a challenge to get her to relax.  I loved their back and forth challenges and the way she won't back down and he won't give up.  I liked the way she started to become part of the town, even though she didn't see it at first.  I also liked the way that Stone kept thinking it was just sex and trying to get her to relax until it finally hit him that he wanted more.  I really enjoyed the pool game, and the scene at the lake was terrific.  There were lots of places that had me giggling at their antics.
