The Perfectly Series Book 1
BY LINDA O’CONNOR
You never know where your words will take you…
When Mikaela Finn agreed to be Sam’s “fiancée” for a weekend, she probably should have told him that she’s a doctor. Sam O’Brien, aka “Dr. Eye Candy,” is trying to shed his playboy reputation and convince a small town hospital that he’s ready to settle down. But when his “fiancée” helps deliver a baby in the middle of the meet and greet, it’s a bit of a shock. If he’d known the whole truth, he might have done things a little differently because somehow his “fiancée” ends up stealing his job and his heart. Not exactly the change he wanted. Lies and deceit – it’s a match made in heaven!
In Perfectly Honest, Dr. Mikaela Finn helps deliver a baby in the middle of a hotel foyer. I had this idea because, as a physician, I’ve helped sick patients on an airplane, in church, at the beach, at the gym- medicine is rarely nine to five. I also delivered my nephew – unexpectedly, but luckily at a hospital – when the obstetrician didn’t show up on time. It was a fast delivery. My nephew is kind, smart, friendly, outgoing – he’s wonderful really – and I take credit. It’s all in the delivery, right? 😀
Mikaela nodded to the paramedics who were busy checking Jessie’s vitals and preparing her for the trip. Mikaela removed her gloves and tossed them in the mess.
She approached Sam and motioned for him to follow her into the foyer. He pushed himself away from the wall and followed her out the door.
She stopped in a quiet corner and turned around. “So,” she said, trying to decide where to start.
“So,” he repeated, “you’re a doctor.”
“Yes, an obstetrician gynecologist,” she agreed, trying to read his reaction.
“Yeah, I got that. Nice work in there, by the way.”
“Thanks,” Mikaela said, looking away, then back at Sam. “Sorry I didn’t tell you.”
“Why didn’t you?”
She shrugged. “I don’t know. It didn’t come up and didn’t seem important.”
“You didn’t think that someone might recognize you?”
Mikaela stiffened. “I never thought of that,” she admitted. “I guess it’s a moot point now,” she grimaced.
“Yeah,” Sam said, putting his hands in his pockets. “I’m sure everyone will have heard of you by tomorrow.”
