On Tour with Prism Book Tours.
Her choice. His consequences.
Nurse Sophie Mattuchi has seen a lot of angry patients in the ER, but no one’s ever rattled her like Jack Carter. He has no right to blame her for his friend’s death. Sophie did everything she could. Didn’t she? Yet his accusations sting, and that sets off all kinds of internal alarms. She’s never cared this much about any man’s opinion of her. But Jack is different. He stirs up feelings. Strong feelings. Guilt. Anger. Attraction. Curiosity. Sympathy. Sophie’s definitely not interested in Jack, but even if she was, he’d never forgive her for the decision she made that night in the hospital. Would he?

Nurses Make Great Girlfriends
I’ve decided that if I were a human and since I’m female, I’d be a nurse like Sophie. For starters, even though she was on her “self-improvement” regime and she was eating healthy, her nursing career also taught her that we all only live once.
She is not adverse to going to The Louise House and getting a scoop of homemade ice cream. I like Louise Railton’s ice cream a lot. Jack liked to go there, too. Sometimes when she goes there now, she takes me and lets me lick the bowl.
Sophie’s doctor and nurse friends are genuine people. They care about each other. I have a feeling it’s because they see people who are sick, disabled and even dying, so they reach out a bit more to help. I know Sophie does.
Nurses appear to like equipment. I noticed this when I first went home with Sophie. She bought me a car seat so I could ride up front with her. She bought special bowls, little dog size, for my food and water. Then when Jack adopted me, we all went to Grandy’s Groomer and set up my haircut and monthly bath. Right after that we went shopping together. Sophie was insistent I have no tears shampoo for in between groomer visits. She didn’t even know I like baths, but I do. Twice a week is my favorite. She bought a doggie tooth brush, special chewies to keep my teeth clean. Low-fat treats. Jack picked out the plaid bed and blanket. He said he liked the plaid, not because it was pink. Sure. Tell it to the judge.
Frenchie Showing Off Her Scarf
I also think nurses understand the need for dogs to ride in cars, windows open, so that we can feel the wind in our faces. She is careful not to go too fast, because the wind can be harsh on our eyes. Jack learned this trick from Sophie. I know…I overheard them talking when they were in the kitchen.
I know I’m a lucky dog to have Sophie, a nurse, as a girlfriend. She takes really good care of me because she loves me. I take care of her and Jack, too.
We are the best family—humans and dog.
