A Chance Meeting…
Big sister, provider and…for as long as she could remember Joy Simmons had only used those two words to describe herself and her less than exciting existence. She wanted more out her life. What she wouldn’t give for a man to make her heart race, but she didn’t have time for any of that until he came along.
...Changes two lives!
Logan Scott never imaged when he went to the hospital for a gunshot wound he would meet her. A woman with dark soulful eyes who possessed a killer body that made him forget every other thought in his mind. He was going to do everything to stroke the intense attraction he felt between them.
Yet, it isn’t going to be as easy as he thought. Something big is standing in his way. However, he isn’t about to give up or let Joy go.
Joy is determined to fulfill the promise she made to her mother to take care of her sister and make sure that she gets a good education so that Dymond will never have to clean someone else’s house. Joy works as a nurse to put Dymond through college. Her nursing job leads to the perfect set up for her to meet Logan, a cop recently shot by the criminal he has been chasing for some time.
Logan has an instant attraction to Joy upon waking up in the hospital. He convinces Joy to break her rule of never dating her patients. There is sexual tension aplenty between these two, but something is always is interrupting their time together.
I thought this story started out showing a lot of promise, but it just fell flat for me. It feels like a young teenager is doing the writing. The conversations sounded fake and there wasn’t much depth between the characters. There were a few inconsistencies that distracted me… for example; Dymond interrupted Joy and Logan sending Logan to the station. He calls Joy from the station and there conversation about the interruption made it sound like it took place the day before instead of just hours prior. After reading Crossing the Railroad I felt like I had just left another B rated movie.
