Bestselling author Devon Hartford brings you another scorching hot and scandalous standalone romance.
SOME SECRETS ARE TOO HARD TO KEEP
The night the EMTs rolled Lion Maxwell into my ER turned my life upside down.
Although he was bloody and battered from defending his title as the WMAA’s reigning cruiserweight champion, his cocky grin lit up the room.
And every cell in my body.
Our fiery chemistry was off the charts.
The ER staff sensed it.
Lion’s entourage and his drooling groupies sensed it too.
If the two of us had been alone, I might have done something entirely unprofessional and completely unethical right there in the exam room. But I was his attending physician. A sexual or romantic relationship with him was grounds for my termination or worse, revoking my medical license. I wouldn’t risk my career on a moment of passion. It didn’t stop that arrogant caveman from doing everything he could to get me into his hospital bed.
After denying his advances for weeks, the last thing I expected were the wild nights he would be spending in my bed.
It was supposed to be nothing more than a secret fling.
I knew it couldn’t last.
He was still my patient.
What we were doing was wrong.
If anyone found out, it could ruin my life.
But we couldn’t let go.
We were bound to each other on some primal level that consumed us.
Sometimes love is tragic.
Sometimes two people aren’t meant to be together.
But sometimes, two people overcome all adversity and build a love that lasts forever.
I knew deep in my heart that Lion Maxwell could be my happily ever after.
As long as we kept our love a secret.
I wish I’d known that some secrets are too hard to keep…

I don't know how Devon Hartford is a best selling author and I'm legit just hearing his name!? I'm just saying. I wasn't sure what to expect going into this book because I've never heard of Devon Hartford before. But, the synopsis caught me and I'm really glad I decided to read this book.
Brigid is a single working mom to her son Daniel, who she shares custody with her ex-husband. She's a Dr who works the night shift. Her life revolves around her son and work. Sometimes her son took a back seat to her career. Brigid doesn't always like it. But, she does the best she can for her and her son.
Lion is a Champion MMA fighter. He's worked hard to get where he's at. And, he's worked very hard. But, he's missing something. When he gets hurt and ends up in the E.R and the beautiful Dr comes in, he's set on what he wants. Except she flat out tells him no.
Brigid goes by the rules. She will not date, sleep or anything with her patients. Lion turns around and gets another Dr. Brigid still says no. Until her and Daniel go into the new dojo that's opened up. With Daniel wanting to join and Lion as the sensi Brigid was in trouble.
Brigid and Lion had such chemistry from the very beginning. There was no way for these two to stay away from each other. Lion never hid feelings, wants and desires for Brigid to himself. For a big, bad, brutal beast of a man in the cage, Lion really was a sweet and caring guy. He loved Brigid and Daniel more then anything. Brigid too was extremely strong. Her ex-husband was a prick and always was even when they were together. I didn't like that she did let her job come before her son at times. I understood that she wasn't going to cross the Dr/patient line. But, I couldn't stand that she'd play games. One minute she's all over Lion and the next it's like she's put him in time out. She's lucky it was Lion. Because, no guy would play by her many different rules.
I am looking forward to my next Devon Hartford read! I don't hear of many male authors.But, this was an excellent book. I read it in a day it was that good. There was plenty of times I was laughing out loud. It was a nice quick standalone.
