Lili Porter hates the rain. Bad things happen in the rain. As a small town social worker dedicated to protecting children, she is forced to start over to escape her rural disaster. Determined to follow her father’s advice—head up and chin high—Lili finds herself in a new city, taking on a new system, this time healthcare. In doing so, she gets something she never expected, an intimate behind-the-scenes look at life in the hospital.

Lili learns that a surgeon’s hands have the power to heal more than physical wounds. And a prescription for truth can cure three years of sleep running and leave you beautifully awake.

Review :

Sexy Doctor Romance? YES please! I cannot help but wonder why this hasn't been done before - what is sexier then a smart man in a white coat who saves lives daily? I literally could not wait to get my head in this book and start reading. 

Lili Porter is a a case worker who is simply drifting through life, she doesn't want to let anyone in past her walls that she has not only built around herself but built around her heart. Lili has had a very hard past and she is trying her best to overcome it and move forward and I respected that, she deserves her happy ending and Dr Chase Colton might just be the person to give it to her.  

Dr Sexy - Dr Dreamy - Dr Stubborn - Dr Possessive - Dr Alpha - Dr Impatient - Dr Mystery - Dr Bossy - Dr Sweet - Dr Just my kind of man.

After initially clashing it doest take long before sparks begin to fly between Chase and Lili - He is the kind of man who has the power to break down her walls and finally make her feel safe and loved, but he is also carrying some secrets and mystery of his own. 

The intensity and chemistry between the two was sizzling hott - I mean you might want to read this next to a fan because boy does it get steamy. You want them to succeed as a couple but with so many secrets and an ugly past between them can they really overcome all the obstacles and find there happily ever after? Or will it all be too much to handle . . .

This kind of reminded me of a sexed up Grey's Anatomy - and I possibly one of the worlds biggest fans of that show so this was an amazing thing. I literally got to see how my Mc Dreamy got down and Steamy ;)
  (oh I do make myself laugh sometimes - don't judge me lol)

4/5 Stars for this debut novel.

“Baby, I want to sleep with you.” His voice softened. “This isn’t about sex. This is about sleeping ... with you ... in our bed, just sleeping, no talking. Just silence, me listening to your soft breaths. That’s truth.” And once again this man had completely disarmed me with words alone. “See you soon, baby.”

Silence filled my ear. I turned and dropped my phone on the bed.
"You're not going to tell him, huh?" Sierra raised her eyebrows and frowned.
"I don't know, but I'm definitely not ready tonight."
"This thing with Dr. Hot-as-Balls is serious, isn't it?"
I couldn't help but nod. My gut told me she wasn't wrong.

About the Authors
Yep. That's an “s.” There are two of us!

We’re East coast girls separated by Long Island Sound who met in Physician Assistant School and have been besties ever since. We can safely say that thirteen miles of water does not get in the way because we talk or text, no exaggeration, at least 150 times a day. No, really, we do—about everything and nothing. Shockingly, we never (we mean never) run out of things to say. Umm, ever. We definitely laugh A LOT and we’re a tad sarcastic. And if we’re being totally honest, one or two people might have, on occasion, used our names and ‘dramatic’ in the same sentence. But it’s hard to trust the sources since they married us.

It only took twelve years, two husbands, five kids, two dogs, and a two-week vacation in Cape Cod later to decide the romance world needed a splash of medicine. Write what you know.

So you can easily find us at 4 o'clock on Bank Street beach with a glass of cold Prosecco brainstorming. And guaranteed if we bump into you, literally, it’s only because our iPhones are glued to our hands (totally out of our control) either writing or editing our next novel (and yes, it is possible to do from your iPhone, we mastered it … damn those straight quotations).

When we are not working on our book or reading the latest angsty romance on our kindles, you basically name it and we have it going on. Soccer, lacrosse, golf, swimming, dance, gymnastics, football, chess, baseball, basketball, skiing, ice skating, school, homework, and more school. 

Oh yeah, did we forget to mention our careers in medicine?

Needless to say, we realized fast that something had to go, so we opted for sleep. It’s completely overrated (yet so AMAZING) and delirium makes everything funnier. Good thing we share a brain and can pretty much complete each other’s sentences (definitely weird, we know), otherwise it might have taken us two years to write Beautifully Awake rather than one.

So that’s our story, who we are … just add AUTHORS to the list!
