Dizzy due to
loss of blood from a bullet wound in his side, an injured
Jared Romero seeks help from the most unlikely person - a
woman who, a year ago, held him at gunpoint after she
discovered that he broke into her apartment. But this woman,
Macayla Sullivan, is a friend of his best friendís wife, and a
doctor, and he has no one else to turn to for help.
Macayla Sullivan is reluctant to begin
her three-week vacation; she loves her job and this workaholic
has very few ideas on how to occupy her time after the first
couple of days. Little did she know that that problem
would be taken care of by the appearance of Jared Romero.
Jared has some bad guys after him, and a little thing like her
presence wonít even slow them down. Neither will Jared, once
he realizes that his feelings for Macayla are reciprocated.
Jared and Macayla are good together in
Take Your Medicine. As bad-boy-turned-good, Jared
still has some rough edges that are very appealing. Macayla
gives Jared a good run for his money, but I would not have
minded if she succumbed to his charms a little earlier. Her
past plays into her decisions, and Jared is very
understanding, more so than me because I soon got tired of her
hiding behind her fears. Take Your Medicine is
the sequel to Surprise but I never read the
first story and I didnít have any problems following this
story line. Take Your Medicine is an
entertaining tale and because I enjoyed the appearance of the
Surprise main characters, I will likely go back
and read that one as well.
