Title: All I Ask
Author: Elizabeth York
Genre: Contemporary/Romantic Suspense
I'll give you a hint. It isn't what you think.
My name is Ian Jensen and I am a Pediatric Oncologist that works day and night with kids that prove to be braver than I. I am open to Nerf gun fights, having fun, and taking control. What's a doctor who lives life by the book do when given a new chapter to live in?
Ask me again tomorrow?
When I started this book, I was like WHY AM I READING THIS???? It has some rough content in it because it is about a child cancer survivor (as an adult) and a pediatrician oncologist. Devan had cancer as a child and ended up surviving. She basically lives her life like she is going to die at any moment. She does not let people in and is planning for her legacy. She ends up falling for the kids in the hospital and eventually Ian. I love that she was not taking no as answer from Ian to start her project. She is very tenacious and driven. Ian is a doctor and truly cares about the kids in his care. He basically lives at the hospital and goes home to sleep for a little bit, sometimes. He has given his whole life to helping the children and does not want Devan to use them for personal gain. As they get to know each other, Ian realizes that Devan is honest about her intentions and can give the kids things that he can't. I fell in love with several of the characters in this book. There is some mystery in this story and it was really surprising at the end. There were times when I hated both characters and wanted to slap each of them. There were some very funny parts too.
I am giving this book 4.5 stars out of 5. Be prepared for some rough patches but the story is pretty good. Go get it!!
