Hi guys! How have you been lately? I’ve been in the mood for romance lately so when I spotted The Nurse’s Pregnancy Miracle by Ann McIntosh I knew I had to have it. Medical romance is one of my favourite types of contemporary romance.

“She’s expecting a baby……but not to meet her Mr. Right! After leaving her cheating ex, nurse Nychelle Cory decided to have the baby she’s always wanted through IVF. As she’s determined to raise her child alone, she must ignore her inconvenient attraction to gorgeous colleague Dr. David Warmington. Especially as David has his own reasons for not wanting a family. But could Nychelle’s long-awaited miracle help heal them both?” [Goodreads blurb]
Nurse Nychelle comes from a family of overachievers and she was always made to feel inadequate by her parents. At an early age, it was diagnosed that she would have problems conceiving so she decides to undertake IVF treatment to have a baby after her cheating ex-fiancee broke her trust and her heart. On the other hand, the new doctor David, he has his own reasons to not want children, so when attraction sizzles between them, there’s a lot standing in their way.
I found the characters very enjoyable and pleasant to have around. David was probably my favourite as more often than not he was open with Nychelle and discussing with her. Nychelle had a pleasant personality and attitude, but felt a little too “good”. It also bothered me that she didn’t stand up for herself with her parents and going into hiding when things went sour rather than facing issues upfront.
Unfortunately, I found the side characters to be extremely cliche and not that well fleshed out, especially the parents who had, in my opinion, such a big influence on her life. I haven’t any more about them than what we were told before and during the gala. I know that main characters have to take centre stage, but I never really understood the parent’s motivations and it bothered me in all honesty that successful, career-orientated people are seen as cold, not interested in family and simply mean; can we lose this stereotype?
I found the plot a little bit too much in the sense that it tried to achieve a lot which took away from the main story. In my opinion, it would’ve been better to have focused more on their story and creating more romantical angst than trying to overcome general issues. I did enjoy the moments the main characters took centre stage and the focus was on them as a potential couple; loved the cute moments when she played tour guide for him.
I did enjoy this story although as mentioned before there some things did not work that well for me, or things bothered me. I found the story cute and quite refreshing in the approach towards its characters who treated each other with respect and maturity.
I would recommend this book!
