Review - Between Me & You by Kimberly Kincaid

Between Me & You
by Kimberly Kincaid
Series: Remington Medical, #3
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 13, 2019

He hates the corporate world.
She's all business.
Now they have to work together
on the one job that could
make or break them both...

Connor became a flight medic
for one reason, and
one reason only.
To help people.
If he can keep his head down
and his past in the past while he's at it?
Even better.

Until Harlow appears to upend his world
with an offer he can't refuse.

She's calculating. Composed.
And she'll stop at nothing to make
her father's business successful.

Even if that means teaming up with Connor
to turn around a failing clinic.

He shouldn't like her.
He definitely shouldn't want her.
But the more they work together
the less he's able to resist.

But Connor's secrets run deep.
Will Harlow's ambition ruin him,
or will she be his salvation?

Filled with lots of sparks – both in the office and out – Kimberly Kincaid delivered a medical romance that had just the right mix of drama and romance but also had lots of heart and compassion that you would hope to find in a medical/clinic setting.

Harlow is very intense and likes to run her life like a well-developed business plan, just give her the facts - no emotions, please - and she’ll come up with a solution that can fix any problem. Connor knows that saving the clinic is more than just making cuts to the bottom line – caring isn’t just about the patients, it also is about the staff. With styles that seem polar opposite and guaranteed to keep Connor and Harlow at odds, I wasn’t sure how these two would be able to work together and figure out a way to try and save the clinic – and add to that the insane chemistry between them and I knew this was going to be fun ride!
“I’m not trying to fight you,” he said, but oh, she was too far gone for reason now.

“That’s not stopping you from doing it.”

His eyes did the storm cloud thing. “Yeah, well, you’re fighting back.”

Harlow’s belly did the backflip thing. Not that it stopped her from upping the ante. “I don’t have any other choice when all you do is make me…”

All of a sudden, she was aware of how little space there was between them. How she could feel the heat of Connor’s body rolling off him in waves. See the dep auburn sweep of his lashes as he dropped his stare to her mouth and watched her whisper, “Crazy.”

“You make me crazy, too,” he whispered back.

Harlow’s heartbeat accelerated even faster, the fizz of anger in her veins turning into a different sensation altogether. She needed to collect herself so she could fix this problem rationally, once and for all.

Instead, she slammer her mouth over his.
Easily read as a standalone, I did love getting to reconnect with characters from the first two books. One of the things that makes this series special is the bond between the friends from Remington Medical as well as the other characters in the cross-over series (Station 17). I love this close-knit group of friends and how they always look out for one another and are always so willing to open their hearts to new members of the group and to each other.

Kincaid’s writing style works perfect with this book and series – the medical scenes were delivered in such a way that I was easily brought into the scene without being overwhelmed with medical jargon or technical information, and there is a natural tension in much of her dialogue that speaks to the nature of the medical setting and the stress that accompanies it. I did love how she also was able to bring out the fun side of the characters as well – even though for Harlow having fun was not something she does much of anymore, so seeing Connor break through her shell was wonderful.

This was a great addition to the Remington Medical series and I look forward to the next book. If you like a lot of sparks and tension between characters also laced with just as much heart and compassion, then this is definitely one to check out!

I received an advance reader copy from the author which I voluntarily reviewed.
