This is such a great story two people who have been through so much in their lives but have still come through with great careers as surgeons neither are looking for love or romance but when love finds them things become rocky but there needs to be a lot of opening up by them both.

Dr Mindy Walker has moved from her sunny California to a cold and wintery New York to take up a position at the West Manhattan Saints Hospital after divorcing her husband and leaving her best friend and on practically her first night there discovers and very gorgeous looking man in a bar and does something she has never done before has a one night stand that will change her life and start her on a path to happiness maybe.

Dr Sam Napier has been working at the hospital for years and is working hard to build his career as a pediatric surgeon on his own merits he does not want to get any position because of his mother who is a well known surgeon although born in New York he lived most of his life in Scotland with his father and he is such a caring but stubborn man and when he has a one night stand and then discovers that she is his new boss this really makes things hard for Sam.

This is such a beautiful and emotional story that will bring tears to your eyes and have you smiling as both Mindy and Sam open up to each other and overcome some tough times to finally realize their love for each other this one is fast paced the setting is fabulous and the characters are all rich in feelings and emotions this is one not to be missed.

5/5 stars for a fabulous story

New York City Docs is a series about four flatmates and friends sharing an apartment trying to be the best they can be at the prestigious West Manhattan Saints Hospital.  One Night in New York is Sam's story.  I felt I already knew Sam from the previous books in the series and I was so happy to finally reach his story.
One night, in New York, Sam and Mindy have a one night stand... two strangers who have never met before and who aren't in the habit of having one night stands but the fates have bought them together, destined to never see each other again...
Unfortunately life doesn't always pan out that way so when they meet up in the morning, both parties could probably be knocked over with a feather.  Dr Sam Napier is late for meeting the new Head of Maternal-Fetal medicine who was being introduced to the Peds floor.  Desperate to be chosen for one of two opportunities to be granted a pediatric fellowship Sam knows he needs to impress the new Head.  If receiving the fellowship had been based on his performance the night before the fellowship would have been all his I'm sure lol but unfortunately Dr Mindy Walker, the new Head of Maternal-Fetal medicine can't pick based on last nights performance.
Initially both mortified to see each other in such a professional capacity, One Night in New York tells the wonderful story of two people, amazing at what they do with bedside manners to die for (in more ways than one) and both trying so hard to succeed in a cut throat world and on the outside have it all but on the inside are both two lonely people.  An amazing career doesn't keep you warm at night and the last thing Mindy can do is show any favoritism, not to mention NOT have a relationship with Sam but when you're destined to be together, friendship is a great place to start. 
Set in a Manhattan winter I found One Night in New York to be an absolute delight with characters I warmed to and a tale I will read again.  I loved the city setting and I found the pediatric medical details absolutely fascinating including the Quints.  I loved the addition of Sam's mother and the barriers that caused. I was right there on the tourist visits Sam took Mindy on.  I would highly recommend this read to anyone and everyone.

Amy Ruttan delivers an entertaining read that transports readers into a world of blissful romance set amidst the backdrop of the medical field.

Sharp, witty and descriptive, ONE NIGHT IN NEW YORK is sure to keeps readers turning the pages!

This novel tells the story of Dr. Mindy Walker who is escaping a past and an ex husband not fit for nothing. Then in walks Dr. Samuel Napier who sweeps Mindy off her feet. Though a tad bit younger than her, Mindy finds Sam attractive and they share an incredible bond with each other. They part as mutual friends not knowing that Sam, impersonating as a Scotsman is actually a colleague at work! Could Sam and Mindy share something passionately life changing?

5/5 Stars

"One Night In New York" by Amy Ruttan is a medical romance that is more of a contemporary romance with a twist. Very enjoyable, quick read, that is great for the beach, pool, or just hanging out inside your home.

This story is between Dr. Mindy Walker who is trying to escape her past and her cheating ex husband. One night she runs into Dr. Samuel, Sam, Napier at a bar, but she doesn't know who he is. Sam is a little younger than her and is impersonating a Scotsman. After a night of fun they separate as friends, but don't realize that they will be working together. It's nice to see the friendship between these two that could possibly turn into something else.

Dr Samuel Napier is a Scotsman by blood and an American by birth. And he is lonely. Not that he craves a love life as such because he totally believes in his mother's philosophy of surgeons never making good homemakers. That is a whole lot of bull by the way. He is lonely because he has no friends left at the teaching hospital where he works and is aiming for a pediatric fellowship under Dr. Chang - the best in her field. All his friends have found love and moved away one by one. And now he has a new person on the panel of the fellowship he has to prove himself to. A new attending at the hospital for Maternal-Fetal Medicine.

Dr Mindy Walker is moving across the country to get away from the pitying looks and the shame attached to the fact that her husband (now ex-husband) cheated on her with her best friend. That her husband was gay. Leaving all that she has built in California, she moves to New York to start over but a little light-hearted fun is alright the night before she starts she thinks and picks up a man in a bar. A man she is instantly attracted to and instinctively feels connected to.

That man is none other than Sam Napier. Of course, neither knew each other and what happened was an honest mistake. Not a mistake really seeing their hearts were in the right place. The morning after, however, is a shocker when they come face to face in the hospital and decide to maintain their distance as neither could afford to have their reputation in tatters because of a one night stand.

Their relationship grows by day as they come to understand and get to know each other more. They become friends and wish to be there for each other in times of need. Is it not more than friendship they wonder. One vulnerable moment have them go back on their word of keeping distance because the need for the other is too much to be denied.

But the question remains that is the other night powerful enough to make them realise what they feel for each other is too powerful an emotion to be suppressed and that their happiness lies in their future together. The fact that Sam is younger than Mindy does not even come in to the equation because Age is, but, a number.

One Night in New York (New York City Docs) by Amy Ruttan

Dr. Mindy Walker moved from California and her ex-husband and what she thought was her best friend to New York, New hospital.

Dr. Samuel Napier is a Scotsman by blood and American by birth. His father lives in Scotland, his mother in the states. He does not have a relationship with his mother other than for her to tell him he should be a neurosurgeon instead of wasting his time in Pediatric Surgery. 
Sam was out for the night and was not looking for anyone. Mindy was out just to relax and they happened to find each other even though they were not looking for someone. She was starting at the new hospital the next day. She picks up a man who turned out to be Sam and they only exchanged first names. They were mutually attracted to each other. They went back to her place and the next morning she woke alone in her bed. 

She gets to the hospital and instantly they both realize this could get complicated. Neither said they were doctors but they knew that since she was literally now his boss and him in running for a fellowship under Dr. Chang, that they had to tread lightly and not let it out about the night before.
They did become friends and he did take her on the New York tour of Lady Liberty, went out for tea and had a good time. 

You must ready this wonderful love story to find out the ending. You will not be disappointed. 
Proves that you can meet a stranger and your lives can be turned upside down.
