by Samanthe Beck
Overview (from B&N.com): Dr. Ellie Swan has a plan; open her practice in tiny Bluelick, Kentucky, so she can keep an eye on her diabetic father, and make hometown golden-boy Roger Reynolds fall in love with her. But Ellie has a problem. Roger seeks a skilled, sexually adventurous partner, and bookish Ellie doesn’t qualify. Tyler Longfoot only cares about three things: shaking his bad boy image, qualifying for the loan his company needs to rehab a piece of Bluelick’s history, and convincing Ellie to keep quiet about the “incident” that lands him on her doorstep at two a.m. with a bullet in his behind. The adorable Dr. Swan drives a mean bargain, though. If sex-on-a-stick Tyler will teach Ellie how to bring a man to his knees, she’ll forget about the bullet. Armed with The Wild Woman’s Guide to Sex and Tyler’s lessons, Ellie is confident she can become what Roger needs…if she doesn’t fall for Tyler first.
As soon as I saw that the main character was described as bookish, I figured this was the book for me. I probably should’ve done just a little more research before making that decision. This novel (412 pages on the Nook) was a surprise for me because I completely overlooked the fact that it is a romance novel. Samanthe Beck’s writing was intriguing and easy to follow. Her characters were well-developed, relatable and lovable (I don’t know if I liked Ellie or Tyler better, they were both amazing!). The dialogue between Tyler and Ellie was humorous throughout most of Private Practice and will keep you on your toes. There is some explicit content in this book, so I’d definitely say ages 16+. If you’re hardcore into the romance genre (e.g. Fifty Shades of Grey), then this might be a bit light for your usual tastes, but it’s still definitely worth reading. I’d recommend Private Practice, as long as you don’t mind some sexual content with your plot.
