Copper Point Medical: Book One
The brilliant but brooding new doctor encounters Copper Point’s sunny nurse-next-door… and nothing can stand in the way of this romance.
Dr. Hong-Wei Wu has come to Copper Point, Wisconsin, after the pressures of a high-powered residency burned him out of his career before he started. Ashamed of letting his family down after all they’ve done for him, he plans to live a quiet life as a simple surgeon in this tiny northern town. His plans, however, don’t include his outgoing, kind, and attractive surgical nurse, Simon Lane.
Simon wasn’t ready for the new surgeon to be a handsome charmer who keeps asking him for help getting settled and who woos him with amazing Taiwanese dishes. There’s no question—Dr. Wu is flirting with him, and Simon is flirting back. The problem is, St. Ann’s has a strict no-dating policy between staff, which means their romance is off the table… unless they bend the rules.
But a romance that keeps them—literally—in the closet can’t lead to happy ever after. Simon doesn’t want to stay a secret, and Hong-Wei doesn’t want to keep himself removed from life, not anymore. To secure their happiness, they’ll have to change the administration’s mind. But what other secrets will they uncover along the way, about Copper Point… and about each other?
I LOVED listening to this!
The dual third-person POV works so well, the themes of found family, Asian culture, and the progression of Simon and Hong-Wei’s relationship is on point…everything just works so well and flows so easily, and is so beautifully performed by Iggy Toma, that I just absolutely loved this. Strong character voices, a great pace, his timing on fire, Toma infuses his performance with humor and passion.
I loved it, would absolutely recommend listening to it, and will definitely be adding it to my re-listen list.
I’m even more excited for the rest of the series now!
