Dr. Paul Johnston can’t get a set of dark, somber eyes out of his head, and the timing couldn’t be worse.



The last thing he needs is to fall for a patient. Not now, when he’s been put on paid leave pending review of a formal complaint. One that most likely accuses him of sexual harrassment or impropriety of some kind. It’s possible he let his newfound freedom as a divorced, out-of-the-closet gay man go to his head, but he’s certain — mostly — he didn’t do anything wrong. Now, he’s struggling to handle the reality that his job is in danger and the only guy he wants should be off-limits.



Zane Kavanaugh is floundering, and there’s only one man who soothes the storm inside him.



Reeling from an assault that landed him in the hospital and the painful estrangement from his family since coming out, Zane is trying to get his feet under him and find his independence. He moves in with a roommate and searches for a job, all while recovering from a fractured arm and cracked ribs. None of that hurts as much as the emotional damage he’s suffered. When he connects with Dr. Paul Johnston outside of the ER, he’s drawn to the man’s calm, collected manner. It doesn’t hurt that Paul’s lack of experience with men is sexy as hell, and so are his over-the-top responses when Zane gets his lips on him.



There’s no right time to fall in love.



Paul is afraid to start a relationship, and Zane can only handle so much more rejection. Will these two find their perfect moment, or will they realize you can’t choose when and how you fall in love? If Paul can’t take a risk, he may have to choose: the career he loves or the first man to capture his heart.



Bedside Manner is Book 1 of the Hearts & Health series. This is a spin-off series from the book Heart Trouble and includes characters from that novel, but it can be read as a standalone.

I enjoyed this sweet read from DJ Jamison! Paul and Zane are great characters, a bit broken and in need of love but definitely likeable guys! I was glad that I had recently read Heart Trouble because we get a lot of Ben and Gage too and knowing their story helped me feel connected to Paul and Zane’s journey together.

Paul is a recently divorced and newly out doctor who lives for his job – he’s a great ER doctor even if he flirts a little bit. Zane is a college student who is recovering from a brutal beating from his step-father. These two shouldn’t connect but they do and neither man can seem to deny it no matter what is on the line.

I liked Paul and Zane, and I liked them together. Their age difference never bothered me and I think it’s because DJ Jamison does a great job of connecting these two. Both of these men have been hurt and have never really had a healthy, loving relationship with a partner before so they pretty much have to learn together. I loved Zane’s attitude and willingness to fight for Paul and what they shared. Paul’s a bit slower, but he with his career in jeopardy he has to be. Their relationship felt very real, with the sweet tender moments, the chemistry together and the struggles.

I really did enjoy this story from start to finish and found myself pretty attached to these two. I’m definitely looking forward to the next book in this series – I’m hooked!

When Gage Evans gets a look at his hot nurse, he’s smitten immediately. Too bad he’s given the nurse the impression he’s some kind of daredevil. It couldn’t be further from the truth. Gage is a college journalism instructor writing a series of guest columns that require him to jump into new experiences — a fun bucket list, but one that does nothing to convince Ben he’s not an adrenaline junkie.



Fresh off his latest heartbreak, nurse Ben Griggs is wary when one of his patients shows an interest in him — especially when that patient showed up in the ER after a motorcycle accident. Ben’s ex was a biker, a friend with benefits, and he dropped Ben cold when someone more interesting came along. Ben isn’t the kind of guy who can hold the interest of an adrenaline junkie like Gage Evans for long. The last thing he wants is to lose his heart to the wrong man again.



The more Ben gets to know Gage, the harder he is to resist. He can only hold on for the ride and keep his guard up as much as he can. But Ben’s lack of trust seriously gets in the way of building a relationship, and Gage will only be patient so long. Can he trust Gage enough to give his heart, or are they destined to have a fling that goes nowhere?



This is a m/m romance. It is Book 6 in the Ashe Sentinel Connections series, but it can be read as a standalone.

This is a very sweet romance that will make your heart happy! Hot nurse and slightly clumsy teacher find happiness together when they least expect it. I really enjoyed this story and totally fell for Ben and Gage. They are both very likeable guys with a real-life feel that made me really want that sweet HEA for them.

Ben is an ER nurse who’s been burned in the past. He doesn’t want a relationship, convinced that he’ll only end up hurt. Gage grew up in the foster system and hasn’t really had a good, loving relationship in his life, but when he meets Ben after a motorcycle accident he sees an opportunity with someone very special. Both men have issues with trust but agree to fun series of dates to get to know each other and when things start to get real, their tender relationship is tested.

Again, this was a sweet story and I loved these two together. They are absolutely adorable even when being slightly hard-headed. Ben and Gage share a connection that is undeniable even if they have to fight for it sometimes. Ben and Gage both had to let go of their insecurities and be honest with each other in order to really be together, and they both learn that for the right person it’s definitely worth it. These two have great passion and love for each other and this story with definitely leave you with a happy heart and a smile.
