Let me introduce you to the Medicine Man

Hi, book buddies :-) Ready for a great week? I'm going to have a stressful one, but I'm hopeful everything will work out in the end. Looking forward to the weekend, right? :-D

I have just read MEDICINE MAN, by Saffron A. Kent, and it's a wonderful romance that deals with mental issues. Recommended.

Willow Taylor lives in a castle with large walls and iron fences. But this is no ordinary castle. It’s called Heartstone Psychiatric hospital and it houses forty other patients. It has nurses with mean faces and techs with permanent frowns.
It has a man, as well. A man who is cold and distant. Whose voice drips with authority. And whose piercing gray eyes hide secrets, and maybe linger on her face a second too long.
Willow isn’t supposed to look deep into those eyes. She isn’t supposed to try to read his tightly leashed emotions. And neither is she supposed to touch herself at night, imagining his powerful voice and that cold but beautiful face.
No, Willow Taylor shouldn’t be attracted to Simon Blackwood, at all.
Because she’s a patient and he’s her doctor. Her psychiatrist.
The medicine man.
WARNING: This book discusses sensitive issues including but not limited to, depression and suicide.

Forbidden romance that cannot be stopped.

Even the title has a mesmerizing quality to it. I was really intrigued by the premise of a patient in a mental institution who slowly developed feelings for her psychiatrist. The plot deals with this illicit attraction along with the very serious weight of mental issues.

I liked to see inside the mind of this girl who suffered constantly under the assault of her own unbalanced thoughts and body chemicals. It was sad yet arresting. Sometimes the symptoms were described repeatedly and made the pace a bit slow. On the other hand, the interaction of the patients in the hospital added fun and friendship. Whereas the figure of Dr. Simon Blackwood appeared like a magnet of healing “epicness”.

This couple should not have worked together. A haunted man in his thirties and an 18-year-ol patient obsessed with Harry Potter. Yet their chemistry is magnificent. In their encounters, there is strength, pulsing sensuality and true emotions. Both are struggling with very ugly inner demons which made the reading highly volatile, powerfully emotional, and bittersweet. I felt my heart break a little with their pain, but then it soared when they fought to mend their broken pieces and found their way to each other again. That final part was so, so fulfilling and romantic.

It’s a tale about love, about accepting our flaws and finding happiness in spite of them, about the warriors we all carry inside. Very good.

Favourite quotes:

My blood is tainted with poison and his is laced with the antidote.

Love is a very stupid thing to lose your life over.

I’m the rain and he’s the cloud that makes me flow.

The ghosts of the past always linger.

Living became something I wanted to do.

“Do you have someone special, Dr. Blackwood?”
Someone you kiss? Someone you grab and pull into a dark alley and press against
I don’t say that but I’m definitely asking that.
It’s like he hears the unspoken questions because the heat of his body seems to have
doubled. Like his blood is rushing in his veins with an uncanny speed.
With flaring nostrils and a hard jaw, he answers, “No.”
“Why not?”
“Because I’m busy.”
I want to smile. Actually, I’ve never wanted to smile this hard. Ever. His answer calms
me but it also makes me restless to move closer to him. I want to trace my palm over the arch
of his chest and see if I got it right in my dreams.
But I don’t do any of those things. I don’t want him to take away this small concession
he’s given me.
Why is he even giving it to me? I’m not complaining. But still.
“Busy with patients?”
“Busy with my job. Yes,” he says, all professional-like.
That’s what he is. Professional and distant. Dedicated to his job and fixing people. If
Mass General let him go, then they are idiots.
I’m an idiot, too, in this moment.
Instead of backing off, I want to do something. Something that might crack his cool
façade. Maybe reaching up and messing up his no-nonsense hair.
What would he do? If I did that? If I grabbed his collar and pushed him against the wall?
And kissed him?
My eyes drop to his lips, his soft, soft lips. There’s a cleft in the middle of his lower lip. I
want to taste that cleft, dig my tongue in it, wet it, suck on it, bite it.
“So you don’t have fun at all?”
“No. I’m not a fun guy.”
I watch his lips form the words, and every syllable that comes out of his mouth makes
my need to shake him, kiss him, mess him up, stronger. Stronger and stronger.
The need is so consuming that I hardly notice when he puts his hand on my palm and
takes it off his body. It’s final and smooth, his action. Effortless. As though my touch barely
registered to him.
“But I think you have a point. It’s after hours and I should go… have fun rather than
spending my time with a patient.” He steps back then. “I’ll see you next week. Same time.”
