At the end of her twelve-hour shift, the last person Sara Delaney expected to see in the E.R. was Alex Conrad, the man who in high school had taken her virginity in a one-night stand.  While seeing Alex look less than perfect from an allergic reaction might be satisfying, she soon finds out that Alex still has the power to unnerve her. 

Alex is all too happy to see Sara again after all these years, and he wants nothing more than to pick up where they left off.  Sara agrees to another one night stand with the only man who both arouses and infuriates her.  But as old sparks burn hotter than ever, the two find out they may be in for more than they bargained for.  One night isn’t enough for either of them.  Not by a long shot.  

Better pack up and head to the E.R., because BEDSIDE MANNER is hot enough to burn!  The second installment of Sophia Rae’s Delaney series is even better than the first.  Ms. Rae has delivered an incredibly sexy story with an engaging plot and likeable characters. 

Sara is a heroine I felt I could identify with.  She’s smart, capable, but completely overworked and not exactly slender.  She’s strong, but has her vulnerable spots as well.  From the very beginning I connected with her and was, for lack of a better phrase, on her side.  As for Alex, at first I found him to be a bit pushy and presumptive, but first impressions can be deceiving.  One of the wonderful things about BEDSIDE MANNER is that I fell in love with Alex as Sara does.  Alex is redeemed by his love for Sara in that he opens himself up in his efforts to get close to her.  Like Sara, I began the book not quite sure that Alex was “hero material,” though he was definitely sexy, but by the end I was totally, irrevocably in love with him.  Their path to love isn’t smooth – both of them make mistakes along the way – but it adds to the humanity of the characters. 

I utterly adored BEDSIDE MANNER.  Those new to the Delaney series will be able to read this book as a stand alone.  But readers of A Stranger’s Bed will no doubt enjoy getting to visit with Marcus and Chloe again.  Ms. Rae has a talent for weaving together steamy sex with character growth, the result being a fantastic, red-hot love story that will have you panting for more.
