The brilliant but brooding new doctor encounters Copper Point’s sunny nurse-next-door… and nothing can stand in the way of this romance.
Dr. Hong-Wei Wu has come to Copper Point, Wisconsin, after the pressures of a high-powered residency burned him out of his career before he started. Ashamed of letting his family down after all they’ve done for him, he plans to live a quiet life as a simple surgeon in this tiny northern town. His plans, however, don’t include his outgoing, kind, and attractive surgical nurse, Simon Lane.
Simon wasn’t ready for the new surgeon to be a handsome charmer who keeps asking him for help getting settled and who woos him with amazing Taiwanese dishes. There’s no question—Dr. Wu is flirting with him, and Simon is flirting back. The problem is, St. Ann’s has a strict no-dating policy between staff, which means their romance is off the table… unless they bend the rules.
But a romance that keeps them—literally—in the closet can’t lead to happy ever after. Simon doesn’t want to stay a secret, and Hong-Wei doesn’t want to keep himself removed from life, not anymore. To secure their happiness, they’ll have to change the administration’s mind. But what other secrets will they uncover along the way, about Copper Point… and about each other?

This is the first book in the Copper Point Medical series by Heidi Cullinan.
I haven’t read many books by this author, but Carry the Ocean won my heart! When I found out we’re going to get a new series by this author I was over the moon.

I am a big fan of doctors TV series, Grey’s Anatomy, House M.D. to name my favorites. So imagine my excitement when I saw this amazing cover and knowing we’re going to get a Taiwanese doctor, Hong-Wei Wu falling for an “outgoing, kind, and attractive surgical nurse, Simon Lane”.

I enjoyed Copper Point’s descriptions, Simon and his friends, his family, the hospital’s atmosphere, but to be honest, St. Ann’s no-dating policy between staff was really annoying and somehow it took too much from this story.

I understood Simon was afraid to lose his job, I understood he was not ready to give up his whole life, and that it wasn’t easy to lie to your family and all that small town where everyone knew everyone, but it still made me angry and made me want to strangle the hospital’s board members.

I must admit I had NO idea who Aaron Yan is. And I never ever heard of K-pop before. This being said, I think this story was pretty light, we don’t get relationship angst and the ending is extremely sweet!

Next books in the series will feature Simon’s close friends: Owen and Jared, each getting their own stories.
