Published: September 21, 2015
Dr. Turner Brooks may be the professional brother, but he's also the adrenaline junkie. When he meets Annabelle, a girl scared to death of veering from the path she’s paved for herself, all he wants to do is push her out of that comfort zone.
Annabelle has already lost too much. She wants to stay focused on her new nursing job and away from unnecessary risks. Turner Brooks is exactly that – an unnecessary risk. She’s heard the rumors about him flying around the hospital, describing him as a “womanizer” or “sex god.” Yeah, she doesn’t need that.
Still, Turner tries to teach her that life is full of risks worth taking. As they grow closer and she begins to let go, the unexpected happens.
Will they be able to recover from that surprising fastball or could this be the final strike out?
**This book can be read as a stand alone**
Review by: Heather
I, along with many readers, have been waiting for what seems like forever, for Slider to release and boy was it worth the wait!!
We first met Turner and Annabelle in book 1 and i for one was so intrigued by their dynamic and my gosh what a dynamic it was!
Annabelle has suffered so much loss in her life that she had basically closed herself from emotional attachment. She does her job as a labor and delivery nurse and comes home to her cat. She plays everything safe and stays within her safety bubble. Enter arrogant, swoon worthy and risk taking doctor Turner who is determined to get Annabelle out of shell and you have one awesome book!
Turner is an amazing book boyfriend. There was so much I loved about him from his positivity, to his ego and to his heart. He embodies the term book boyfriend to a T!
Despite the way she has closed herself off, Annabelle is kind and witty and cares far more than she lets on.
I absolutely adored this couple! Their banter was adorable, the feels were amazing and the sexy times left my heart beating so fast.
The plot was pretty good, though somewhat predictable, it really worked for the characters. I loved some of the adventures Turner "forced" Annabelle on and I adored how he was there for her when she needed him the most.
I really enjoyed this book and the epilogue has me wanting Macie and Dodger's book YESTERDAY!!!
I give this 4.5 stars.
