*I received an eARC of this book to review*
Magnolia by Melissa Adams
“Magnolia Kinsella is finishing her nursing degree and interning at Silver Spring Memorial but seriously she’s a little klutz and so accident prone that she keeps turning up as a patient more than she should.
Magnolia loves to jog to clear her mind and read steamy romance novels. She’s shy when she likes a guy but a certain magic paperback might change her fate.
Remember Thor … Ehm Max, the sexy paramedic from Onyx?
He has to rescue our nurse from herself a few times but he certainly doesn’t mind.
What happens if he isn’t the only one who’s noticed our girl but also his roommates Doctor P. (You’ll have to find out how he earned the nickname lol) and officer Hunk have secret crushes on our girl?”
If you like:

Then this is the book for you!
This is book 11 of the Silver Springs collection following the small relatively quiet town.
I was intrigued yet hesitant to read this book since Magnolia is finishing up her nursing degree and wasn’t sure how closely it would follow to real life stuff with the medical terminology and such since I’m a nursing student and have a pretty good handle on that stuff. I was both relieved and disappointed that the story didn’t really show the nursing side of Magnolia since her moving to Silver Springs was a way to continue her education and for it to play such a huge part of her life, I’d figure that we’d get to see her in action of the floor.
This story would fall somewhere in the middle out of the stories I’ve read from this collection. Magnolia had more relational depth other than just constant sex and hook ups so props for that.
I felt so bad for Magnolia in the beginning because she meet all of the guys in less than pleasant circumstances. She almost got hit with a car, had to call 9-1-1 to get transported to the hospital because something got stuck where the sun doesn’t shine, and had to get said item removed by cute doctor on the floor.
It also seems that Magnolia and the guys are human which threw me for most of the book (if they aren’t then it was never discussed what they are). I knew that there were some humans in the town, but I just assumed that all of the stories would follow a supernatural couple. It was refreshing to see normal people in such a complex relationship and having to work through the feelings instead of saying “oh, you’re my mate”, but it was also convenient that all of the guys that Magnolia was seeing were friends since kindergarten and basically brothers.
There were some sweet moments (get your head out of the gutters) and some that made me release a deep sigh.
Out of all of the guys, Porter, who happens to be the doctor at the hospital where Magnolia is studying, is the one who is the most developed in the story. But, I also believe that it’s partly because Porter’s mom is the head nurse on the floor and is constantly trying to keep Magnolia away from her son.
This is definitely a light, quick romance book to read perfect for the summer!
