Daniel slid into his seat and away from Eric, but his arms remained tense. His brothers wouldn’t like this plan. He didn’t like this plan. “I’m to babysit the spoiled rich princess and keep her away from the cops and the alcohol, this trip.”
He pressed his lips together. He expected his brothers to have an opinion, but silence greeted his ears.
All eyes went back to the door.
His collar grew warmer. Daniel glanced around to stare in the same direction. He assumed Kate Sparrow had stepped into the club.
His eyes scanned the room, and then the crowds parted. He had his first look. Time might have stopped, and he heard his own heartbeat. Brown hair with a bit of a curl, brown eyes, small frame, unusually large breasts for a woman her size, and an energy that took his breath away. He also noted that Kate’s eyes held a gleam, and Daniel’s mouth fell open. Kate Sparrow was the most beautiful woman he’d seen in a long while.
Beauty meant trouble. He turned back to his beer and refused to stare at her.
The pictures in the papers hadn’t done her justice at all. How did they turn that pretty woman into a viper with a camera? His mind raced. Did she have a Jekyll and Hyde personality that came out at night?

These are the last 5 I had in my youtube history. I need music without words to write.
Borrowing the Doctor is a neat story filled with suspense and romance.
Kate Sparrow is on a mission to clear her name. Her father and sister have set her up to take a huge fall, but she won’t take it lying down. We get to follow her journey to finding out the truth and bringing the guilty parties to justice – all while we get to see her fall hard for Dr. Daniel Collins.
Daniel is a straight-laced, do-the-right-thing kind of guy. He gets roped into “babysitting” party-girl Kate, and ends up seeing that she is far more than her image. Together they resolve to clear Kate’s name and give her back her life.
Their relationship develops with lots of ups, downs, twists, and turns that keep you guessing.
Now, I have to say, I had a hard time getting into this book. The premise was cool, and I really liked what the author was trying to accomplish. It was difficult to follow, though, due to choppy writing. The sentences were very short, jumping from thought to thought, so I did have to re-read paragraphs to figure out what the character was thinking. Also, at times events seemed jumpy, and I would feel a bit lost.
All-in-all, Borrowing the Doctor was a fun read and I would give it a 3 cup rating.
