Why did I want to read this book? Big thanks to the blurb telling that our main character is an OR nurse. Oh yes, it had caught my interest because if you haven't known it yet, I'm an operating room nurse as well. Good thing that this book did not disappoint me. Steal My Heart started with an action-packed, heart-stopping scene that will have you gripping your readers.
We are introduced to Maggie, an operating room nurse with an obsessive compulsive disorder. (This disorder seemed to run through a lot of OR nurses, me included.) She lives inside her little sterile bubble until a hot hobo decided to pop it. Their first meeting - it was epic! It's one of the reasons why I go home right after my duty and don't roam around the city in my white uniform. :)
Then there's the dark and dangerous Gabe, her hot hobo. They met in the most unusual circumstances, and after she 'saved' his life (reluctantly) - her life was no longer the same. He likes his solitude. His latest assignment however, have gone awry and he almost didn't escape alive. In order to safe-keep the data he stole, he placed it in the nurse's pocket. He breaks into his apartment, and he took more than the drive with him. Suddenly, it was not only the data he needs to protect. He needed to protect Maggie too. The question is, from who? What they don't know and realize is that their enemy is much more closer than they think.
Although Maggie tried to place her attraction as Stockholm Syndrome - in which one falls in love with the captor - she couldn't deny the attraction and the sexual chemistry that is brewing between them. The moment it exploded, she realized that not all dirty are bad. Some can be pretty... orgasmic. But can he trust her heart to the man who is constantly walking away?
Steal My Heart have really stolen my heart because it started very strong - and yet the adrenaline rush carried on to the middle and right just before the end. I'm not just talking about action scenes here, the steamy scenes were as intense as the crazy chase. Lisa Eugene rewarded her readers with a sweet, funny ending to wrap it all up, just enough to have your cardiac rates back to normal.
(Just a thought though, how can she possibly work inside the OR if she detest body fluids? We are so exposed to that and many more every hour of the shift, although we do have our protective gears.)
