After Hours ´ A dangerous infatuation with a rough and ready manErin Coffey has been a nurse for years but nothing’s prepared her for the physical and emotional demands of her new position Needing to move closer to her dysfunctional family she takes a dangerous job at Larkhaven Psychiatric Hospital where she uickly learns that she needs 4 12 Real Man Stars Kelly RobakRAWRRRRR I loved it “There’s four things a real man has to be able to do for a woman”“Exactly how many man lists do you have?” He let my wrist go and ticked the items off on his fingers “Fix her car Grill her a steak Kick the ass of any guy who makes her cry And fuck her so hard she wakes up half crippled”I have a flat tire I punctured it myselfcheck I'm hungrycheck I know just the man who needs an ass kickin' check and I have a pair of crutches laying around somewherecheck I'm good to go come and get me Kelly Did this book have some sexy steamy fun? Yes but it was Erin and Kelly’s complex characters that captivated me and drew me into this simple yet full story The setting is uniue a psychiatric hospital and Cara McKenna took the delicate subject of mental illness and created a story around it In the first few pages through Erin’s thoughts she paints the picture of the horror we all imagine and then the author shatters that image It was informative sensitive and she doesn’t depict the patients in the usual stereotypical way instead she gave a face to the millions who suffer from this multi faceted disease It was a face we could sympathize with and gave us a better understanding how distressing life can be for these patients and their caretakers Kelly Robak is an orderly at Larkhaven he is observant uiet and a soothing figure to the patients But when things get out of control he is the man the nurses look too to calm and subdue the patients if necessary Erin Coffey is an LPN whose only real work experience was as caretaker for her grandmother who suffered from dementia She walks in Larkhaven out of need a job and benefits never imagining that man she initially pegged as a patient would become such a big part of her life and teach her so much about the people she was caring for and herself “Just know that whatever anyone in there says to you when they’re having an episode it’s not personal You’re the just the face that was closest to theirs when the impulse hit” The connection between Erin and Kelly is immediately evident but no over the top fireworks and insta love a slow build and a uestioning of what it is that they are feeling Kelly offers her a weekend of mind blowing sex but he wants total control Erin evades him at first but then gives into her desire and curiosity The passionate sex they have fills a need within them It then leads them both on a journey of self discovery they find out how much alike they are and what really led them to Larkhaven This is what I most enjoyed about the book how they revealed themselves through intimate somewhat therapeutic conversations Neither is what the other one bargained for and traveling that path with them was the beauty of this book This is a serious sensual passionate read At times it is humorous and light hearted and filled with amazing dialogue I was wholly involved with the two main characters from the moment they graced the pages and curious as to how their story would play out Erin’s sister Amber and her son Jack added another very interesting element to the story and played a big part in some realizations for both Kelly and Erin If I had one issue it would be that in one scene in particular the sex and talking on the part of Kelly was too much for my liking and probably won’t have the same affect on other readers The ending is well done subtly sweet satisfying and painted a bright future but I would have enjoyed an epilogue Overall though one of the best books I’ve read by this author the top spot is held by the Shivaree series I highly recommend this book for fans of Cara McKenna and readers who love a sensual passionate journey to self discovery definitely worth reading A copy of the book was kindly provided by Penguin Group Berkley via NetGalley reader ↠ After Hours ↠ Cara McKenna
