200 Harley Street : The Shameless Maverick by Louisa George

200 Harley Street: The Shameless Maverick

Reviewed by Desere 

Junior surgeon Kara Stephens has been assigned her very first high profile case, it's to help an injured princess. Fabulous news right ?

Not quite, when she has to work with hotshot Irish surgeon Declan Underwood. Now you might be thinking working with hot Dr is never bad for any woman, but when he is the same man she kissed at hospital ball, it places a whole new spin on the entire situation, talk about uncomfortable!

Declan is well known for being a total heartbreaker and woman all over would rather see him tied to a tree and be whipped then back in their beds, but lucky for him his legendary surgeon skills make up for it and he is famous in his own right.

His glamorous life in London however is a far cry from the poverty- stricken childhood he once knew, and he would rather keep hidden. But when Declan and Kara are tossed into each other's lives there is no denying their feels for each other, only Kara is not prepared for this to be a non lasting relationship and Declan does not believe it things lasting forever, if it does not work he walks away end of story of is is?

This was a very lovely afternoon read full of emotional drama and a sweet romance building to a passionate relationship. The characters were well written and the author created them both with realistic perfection , it was as if I was reading about a true life relationship instead of a fictionally created one.

Both characters emotions, actions and reactions were that of what we would do in real life, it did not feel as if it was something no person will say or do, I find in some medical romances that the actions and sayings of the characters just don't feel real and am left thinking " Really, where did the author come up with this?" , thankfully not the case in this medical romance, nicely done Louisa!

I am taking away a message of our past might not be anything like our current situations, it could be worse or better, but it does not matter. The point is how you handle your situation , if you flounce it off and try to cover it with misguided actions you will only be seen as a terrible person making you no better than your past. But if you face up to it and try to make it better than your past would have done, then the true you will show through.

I recommend this read for all fans of medical romance reads, that love a good and sweet tender romance with a bit of a feisty streak and crackling tension.
