Title: The Doctor in Unit H
Series: A Mockingbird Place Novel
Author: Kris Cook
Genre: M/M Contemporary Romance
Some people say you can’t fall in love at 18. But I did. And the man of my dreams? Jaris Black. He was also 18. Our first year at medical school we moved in together. It was…perfect. Until…
I haven’t seen or talked to him in six years. But I’ve never stopped thinking about him. Jaris is a very successful doctor, which is no surprise to me. Still living in Unit H at Mockingbird Place. God, how I’ve missed him.
I won’t drag Jaris into the chaos that is my life. No. I won’t. But my mother who is dying has requested to see him. They were so close. Still are. I had to honor Mom’s wish. I called him and he’s arriving in an hour. Can I keep my feelings hidden from him? I need to, for his sake.
Though starting in straight erotic romance, Kris's total focus now is on gay romance. When asked why recently, his answer was "My muse finally came out of the closet. Isn't it about time? I’ve been out since I was twenty-five." A voracious reader, Kris loves many genres of fiction, but this writer's favorite books are romances that are edgy, sexy, with rich characters and unique challenges. Kris' influences include Anne Rice, JR Ward, Lexi Blake and Shayla Black. Last year, Kris married the love of his life Stephen.
Kris Cook has done it again...he's blown my socks off. Every time I read a Mockingbird Place novel (this is #4) I wish I could find such a place and move there. The residents immediately open their arms and hearts to new tenants, making them feel welcome, loved and cared for. But it goes farther than that. The truly stand behind each other, REGARDLESS of the situation any of them find themselves in, as Maddox Butler finds out.
Kris gives readers a story that is so realistic it could have been taken straight from the 6:00 news. The characters are incredibly complex and determined to help Maddox out of the situation he finds himself in, a travesty of justice.
One of the greatest things about the Mockingbird Place novels is that you don't have to read any of them to understand what's going on in the novels, and The Doctor In Unit H is no exception. I can't recommend The Doctor In Unit H strongly enough. Or the entire series for that matter.
If you want to read the entire series, and I guarantee you that after reading The Doctor In Unit H you will, read them in the following order to get the best enjoyment from the series.
- The Marine In Unit A
- The Cowboy In Unit E
- The Fireman In Unit C
- The Doctor In Unit H
- The Fighter In Unit J (coming soon)
I really wish I could give ratings higher than a 5, but I can't, so I'll settle for a 5. Read it, you won't be disappointed.
