Release Date: October 11, 2022
Hooking up with my best friend’s brother was a mistake…an unforgettable one. It’s always in the back of mind and having returned to town has brought all those feelings rushing to the surface.
This time, I’m only here to cover my dad’s patients and help run the clinic—all work and no play. I haven’t even seen Gabe Rhodes since the steamy night we shared after he rescued me from a snowstorm. I need to keep it that way. Feelings make things messy and coming home has enough complications for me.
Avoiding him is going to be harder than I thought—turns out Gabe is my new co-worker, and the gorgeous physician isn’t just sharing the practice with me. He wants to share his bed too.
Blair O’Connor is back in town, and back in my life…and if we’re not careful she’ll be back in my arms. Being forced to work next to the sexy pediatrician every day is a special kind of torture.
She keeps reminding me she’s only here for a few months—that she has a job to do. We both do. But that doesn’t stop me from wanting her. The green-eyed beauty has captivated me. I know being here isn’t easy for her, witnessing the life her dad built with a new family.
I just have to make her see there are other reasons to stay…like how good we could be together.
Pretty Incredible is the first full-length novel in the Pine Valley series by Lacey Black. There is a prequel short story called Pretty Remarkable that I HIGHLY recommend reading but not required. I read it last year in the Small Town Christmas Anthology and I wanted more and Lacey delivered.
It’s been six months since Blair was in her hometown of Pine Valley. Six months since she spent one night with her best friend’s older brother. She felt felt his touch, still thought of him every night, and still felt him in her heart. She wasn’t here for him though. She was in a town she very rarely visited to fulfill a promise to a man she barely talks to. Her father. A man who betrayed their family sixteen years ago. It was only going to be for four to six months then she would be back to Chicago. For now, she was going to help the small town as a doctor in her father’s practice. She was going to hang out with her bestie, and maybe reconnect with friends. She definitely wasn’t going to fall back into the arms of Hallie’s brother…
She was back. The woman who has taken up his mind over the last six months. Now, she was at his practice. Her office was right next door. Will he be able to keep his hands to himself for the next few months?
I mean, why not have a fling while she was in town? The connection was still there. The fire was still burning from Christmastime. The flirt was on-point. The passion was undeniable. They had an expiration date and an understanding. They were adults. Professionals. They knew there were feelings. No denying that but all they could have were these few months. Right? Right.
I ♥️ Dr. Gabriel Rhodes. Just yum! Sweet, funny, sexy, and swoony. I also ♥️ Dr. Blair O’Connor. She is witty, fun, beautiful inside and out. These two are so much fun, flirty, sexy, and just click. I felt it back in the short story and I feel it even more now. The story isn’t just about these two doctors being good with their hands either. It’s about family, forgiveness, and moving on. It’s beautiful and raw. I can’t wait for the next book! I have a feeling I know who it’s going to be but if not, that’s okay, there are a few possibilities and I am here for both.
She’s the drug I crave, and I’m too weak to fight the pull.
“I’ve been thinking about you all damn day in a bikini, but this is…wow. You’re a vision. A fucking wet dream come to life,” he mumbles before claiming my mouth in a passionate kiss.
“Why, Miss O’Connor, are you wasting my shaving cream again?”
She gives me a Cheshire cat smile. “Maybe.”
Pretty Incredible is the first book in a new series by Lacey Black! I get so giddy when my favorite authors start new series’ and this one is fantastic! Blair left town when she was seventeen and never wanted to come back. Her father’s the local doctor and now she needs to go home and help run his practice while he’s out on medical leave. To her surprise, Gabe, her best friend’s brother and the man she spent one amazing night with months ago is now a doctor at the clinic. She’s only there temporary so what’s the harm in having a little fun while she’s there. Gabe is already falling for Blair and even though he knows she’s leaving he can’t help but hope she decides to stay. While in town she reconnects with old friends, spends time with her half-sister and spends her nights in Gabe’s bed. Will Blair be able to put her past behind her and choose love? Will Gabe be able to let her go when it’s time. Oh Lord! Gabe is so handsome and smart and swoony! And Blair is tough, smart and beautiful. They have amazing chemistry and fun banter. I loved meeting all these new characters and Lacey is a master at setting up the next books. I already love them all!
