    Sadly not my favourite book by Samantha Christy, Stone Vows equally frustrated me and annoyed me. The first part (which is more than 60% of the book) is in Kyle’s POV which I don’t have a problem with, but what frustrated me was that during this whole time nothing happened. Elizabeth/Alexa/Lexi was a totally closed book and nothing was given away. As a reader, I need to know something …. ANYTHING … to keep my interest. I get that Kyle wasn’t supposed to find out till later in the book, but I nee Sadly not my favourite book by Samantha Christy, Stone Vows equally frustrated me and annoyed me.

Elizabeth/Alexa/Lexi was a totally closed book and nothing was given away. As a reader, I need to know something …. ANYTHING … to keep my interest. I get that Kyle wasn’t supposed to find out till later in the book, but I needed to know way before I had virtually given up. When things started getting revealed all it served to do was show just how TSTL Elizabeth/Alexa/whoever she chooses to be was. When your life and that of your child is threatened you do NOT run away from safety, you run TOWARDS it. Total idiot. Kyle left me so conflicted. He’s everything I want in a hero, charming, thoughtful, kind, considerate, protective, caring and it was thrown back in his face time after time after time, but - and it's a big BUT, he was still banging his f*ckbuddy a third of the way into the book. I don't want to read that in my romances. I get he had an active sex life, but once he meets the heroine he needs to ditch that, not keep at it like an energiser bunny. I really didn’t connect with the h much, even once her reasons for running were revealed. Too little, too late and way too rushed to the point of more or less being glossed over, though I liked that Kyle made her work to get back in there but to be honest I wish he had just walked away. I read this because I loved Catching Caden so much and he was introduced in this book so I wanted to find out more. So very little was given of their back stories that I shouldn't have bothered. 2.5 at best meh and frustrated stars.

    3 Hesitant Stars Ok, this is one of this books that are hard for me to decide on a rating. I almost feel like I have to give it two ratings, one for the first 50% of the book, which would be 2 stars at best, and another for the last 50% which would be 4 stars, so I'll compromise and leave it at 3 Stars. Now to explain my rating I have to organize my thoughts Into positives and negatives. So... NEGATIVES: 1) The H having a sexual relationship with an OW throughout the first half of the book. The book 3 Hesitant Stars Ok, this is one of this books that are hard for me to decide on a rating. I almost feel like I have to give it two ratings, one for the first 50% of the book, which would be 2 stars at best, and another for the last 50% which would be 4 stars, so I'll compromise and leave it at 3 Stars. Now to explain my rating I have to organize my thoughts Into positives and negatives. So... NEGATIVES: 1) The H having a sexual relationship with an OW throughout the first half of the book. The book starts with the H "Kyle" calling and having sex with another resident from the hospital where they both work. They are not in a "relationship", they are f-buddies, that use sex to relieve the stress of working at the hospital, and they "use" each other for the release when they feel like it. This is wrong to me in so many levels, and for so many different reasons that I don't even know where to begin. First, it doesn't speak very good of the H's character that he just uses this OW like she's an object to get him the "release" that he wants. However this girl is fine with it (until she's not), and she agrees to this arrangement, they use each other, so at least he wasn't deceiving her. Second, they are having a lot of sex. Like ALL the time. In the hospital rooms (Eww). Seems like every time the H had a difficult case, or was tired, or couldn't handle the outcome with a patient he would call her for a quickie. Really?? If you're a doctor and can't cope with the job, then you should probably find a different profession. Because using meaningless sex to handle things is a healthy way to cope, right? Now I don't know if I'm the only one who really dislike reading explicit sex scenes between the H and OW, but I don't enjoy that. Like I said it wasn't once or twice, but MANY times. It's really off putting, and unnecessary IMO. We could have gotten the idea without the details, and it just made me uncomfortable. This arrangement lasts up until the H realises that he's falling in love with the h, but even before that, the H and h had an emotional connection yet he continued to "see" the OW. He also realized that this OW was developing feelings for him, and he kind of encouraged or let it happen, because he thought maybe she was the right girl for him. And then he ended it, but not before this OW kind of realized that he was interested in the h. Anyway, this was a big NO for me, and the mostly the reason for the 2 star rating on the first half. 2) The book drags a little bit in the first half. We get a lot of information on patients/cases at the hospital, and while I appreciate that the author is trying to build context, and establish the environment for the story, it is a device that doesn't advance the storyline. Again we could have gotten the same effect without all those hospital cases and details that seemed more like filler. I admire that the author did her research on the medical aspect, but it was unnecessary IMO. With the exception of one scene that was really moving and hard to read, because I could imagine the devastation that a mass casualty event would bring and the sadness that involved that particular scene, the rest could have been shortened. Then in the second half of the book, the story takes us away from the hospital and we don't read anything hospital related, so it went from a lot to nothing. Positives: 1) The h "Elizabeth". I really liked her strength, her character. She was sweet and caring. She was in a difficult situation, she was going through something rough, and she never complained and never wavered. She really was strong. At times she came across as too proud, but when I learned of her past, I understood why she was like that. There was one instance where I didn't agree with something she did, but she came back and tried to fix it. In the second half there were times where I would have given up on the H, but she loved him and she stuck with him. 2) The relationship between the H and h, and the way they get to know each other. I enjoyed the time they spend at the hospital. It was sweet and the only good part of the first half. 3) The secondary characters which are the five couples from the five previous books. I enjoyed all these other books so it was great to have them all together and as an important part of this story. 4) Samantha Christy's writing. I know I complained about the first half, but all in all, her writing is very good. She has a beautiful prose, she is able to tap into the readers feelings and can manage the perfect balance of angst and romance, drama and happiness. . Undecided: 1) The H. It's hard for me to categorize him into positive or negative. I think he's both. The negative being what I discussed previously about his involvement with the OW, the other was that he was hot and cold in the second part of the book, wanting the h, but not wanting her at the same time... he could not decide what he wanted, so it was push and pull. The positive is that he was a really nice guy. He was compassionate as a doctor, just a good guy wanting to change the world. He would do anything to help people, and that's how he got to know the h. I know I didn't paint him in a good light before, but sometimes even good people make shitty decisions. All in all this book was a good read, There are a lot of sweet heart tugging moments, and I'm glad I stuck with it and read through the unsavory parts because at the end the positives outweigh the negatives by far.

It isn't too often that there is a swoony hero that comes from money and has a heart bigger than his bank account. He may be a bit cocky, but in his case it's truly justified. Kyle is a second year resident who has a good thing going with Gina, a fellow resident. Friends with benefits, neither of them looking for more. And then Kyle meets Elizabeth. A very pregnant, very mysterious Elizabeth. So Kyle has Gina, perfect Gina, who is just as busy and overworked as Kyle. Gina, who understands the demands of the job and is on the same "friends" page as him. But there is just something about Elizabeth... This isn't a fast HEA book. This book has substance. Stone Vows will keep you reading until you turn the last page. Phenomenal book! I was provided an ARC of this book so that I might leave an honest review

    DNF God I freaking hate this book. I'm on chapter 12 and even though the hero met the heroine early on, and is hanging out with her, everything else is him screwing his hospital fuck buddy. In vivid detail. I kept thinking it would stop but nope, there's no end in sight. Wtf? It's literally making me nauseous. Who wants to read that shit in a romance book? And he goes straight from screwing her to the heroines room to hang out with her. And no condoms either. Ugh. Gross. Freaking HATE it. I'm do DNF God I freaking hate this book.

I loved the flow of the book. I wasn't turned off by him and the FWB having sex before he realizes that he is falling for Elizabeth. Great first read of the author.

    FELL HARD FOR THIS READ I am fairly new to reading this author and I haven't been disappointed yet. This book was no exception. It was phenomenal! There was so much that Lexi and Kyle had to go through to get their happily-ever-after. I fell in love with these characters and thought the storyline was well written. I'm hooked and need more of her wonderful words. FELL HARD FOR THIS READ I am fairly new to reading this author and I haven't been disappointed yet. This book was no exception. It was phenomenal!

    Sometimes you never know what was missing from your life until it stares you right in the face. Kyle always thought that opening his own clinic was the only thing in his future, that is until a high risk pregnant woman shows up while he is working in the ER. Kyle's priorities change overnight. But can Elizabeth/Alexa get closure from her past to make a life with Kyle. This was by far my favorite Stone brother. The characters, the angst and the HEA make this a must read that I highly recommend. Sometimes you never know what was missing from your life until it stares you right in the face.

    I found the first part of this book kind of dragged on and moved really slow. The second part got better but it felt like it all exploded and ended in one chapter. Felt like I waited for the romance to really get going and then when it finally happens it end! Hated that. Also found it stupid that Lexi would go through all the trouble hiding from, and fearing, this horrible abusive husband for him to just show up and simply ask for a divorce and give her up without any fight. Very anti-climactic. I found the first part of this book kind of dragged on and moved really slow. The second part got better but it felt like it all exploded and ended in one chapter.

    This was very disappointing. Sorry, I just can’t read two thirds of a book while the main character has descriptive sex with someone other than the heroine. I don’t care how it ends, that’s just not enjoyable. I stopped reading at chapter 13 and read the epilogue.

It had actual depth to the characters and the stories and situations. I liked the plot. I do wish we had Kyle's POV in the second half of the book. I loved seeing Caden! That was really great.

    I enjoyed Stone Rules and Stone Promises. So when I saw this latest book, I thought, this is going to be sooo good...and then it wasn't. The bar was set high and this just fell short. However, I am a loyal reader and even though page after page my disappointment grew-I finished the book. I recommend the Stone Brothers' books, but just not this one.

    Kyle's Story I don't know why I thought Kyle would have a simpler story. More straight forward. An easier path. Instead, in its own way, his has been the most fraught with an almost unimaginable obstacle. Having something so precious, losing it, getting it back, but in a way that makes it almost impossible to accept, because of the inherent, and seemingly unfixable situation. A situation that makes it a relationship with permanent limitations. Stop here if you're reading reviews before reading the Kyle's Story I don't know why I thought Kyle would have a simpler story. More straight forward. An easier path. Instead, in its own way, his has been the most fraught with an almost unimaginable obstacle. Having something so precious, losing it, getting it back, but in a way that makes it almost impossible to accept, because of the inherent, and seemingly unfixable situation. A situation that makes it a relationship with permanent limitations. Stop here if you're reading reviews before reading the story, because a spoiler is coming up. Having been in an abusive relationship, with my first high school boyfriend. Who is the father of my son, this story tries to explain the unexplainable. I have been scoffed at so many times, by people who think that it will never happen to them. That they'd immediately leave and never look back. If it was that easy, all stories of abuse would be short. The process of abuse starts so subtly, and is done in such a way, that by the time you look back, and try to figure out how you've become this damaged person, stuck in a terrible situation, you're so isolated there's no where to turn. The fear of getting someone else hurt, because of the decisions you've made, is paralyzing. Layer on top of that, the terror of the results of getting caught trying to leave, and the cherry on top is the deep shame and embarrassment of being abused. Put trying to protect your child from their other parent, who likely controls the money so they can hire an attorney, when you can't, and you're stuck in a situation with no way out. Statistics show, the most dangerous time for a woman trying to leave an abusive situation, is when the actual attempt to leave happens, and the window of time immediately after that. The loss of control can push the abuser to react so violently, it results in the death of the abused. One of the most common ways an abused woman dies, is thru strangulation while the abuser is trying to keep her quiet so others won't hear. Crying out for help can get you killed. Leaving often increases the likelihood of being killed. Knowing that, does it start to make sense that sometimes leaving is more dangerous than staying. Especially if you have children. The abuser often has enough financial power to strip custody from the abused. Would you risk losing your children to the very person they are most in danger from? If it was easy or simple to get away, most would choose to leave. You wind up in a box with no escape. No money, often times no job ( nothing will sway a judge faster on who to award primary custody, when 1 parent has no job, and no way to support the children). Cut off from friends and a support system, and you have a recipe for either leaving the children behind to their fate alone, or staying abused, but with a chance to protect them as much as possible. There aren't enough shelters, or pro bono lawyers. So much proof of abuse is either impossible to get, or inadmissible in court, and then you have the judgment and shame involved with bringing the abuse to light, and see why so many stay. Not because they want to, but because there's no other choice. When I was involved in a custody battle, with my abuser, his convictions, yes convictions, for domestic violence against both myself and my son, as well as convictions against him for abusing the next girlfriend and wife, were inadmissible in Illinois because they were misdemeanors. Multiple domestic violence convictions were inadmissible. I hadn't been allowed to work, so with a limited education, my first job after I left paid $1 over minimum wage, while he had a good union job. And I was terrified of him. If I didn't win custody, and had made him really angry in court, my child and his newest fling, were going to pay the price. My income didn't have room for food, much less any money for an attorney. So I was on my own in navigating the court system. I stayed until I realized my odds were about even for him killing me because I stayed, or killing me because I left. I lost. I lost custody of my son. Was only granted visitation at his discretion (meaning a few hours a week, because I was being punished for leaving, and the way to cut me the deepest was to keep my son from me). And I had to pay child support. Even though he made almost 10 times more than me. I think everyone has a responsibility, financially for their children, but I was making below the poverty level, and had to get a roommate, with an apartment in a sketchy side of town (that my ex decided wasn't safe enough to bring my child to while I had him those precious few hours a week), and work a second job just to eat and keep a roof over my head. Even if it was a crappy roof, in a tiny shared apartment, and cup a soup was dinner. A lot. And I was judged harshly both for being "weak", because I had allowed myself to be abused, and a terrible mother because my son didn't live with me. To this day, I wonder if I should have stayed.

    Fantastic ending to the saga Having read all the Stone Brothers book now I really can’t decide which brother I like the most. This one follows Kyle... a doctor in a busy ER dept. He’s caring, compassionate and wants the best for his patients. Like his brothers, he’s inherited his wealth but apart from his luxurious apartment, you wouldn’t know he was worth millions. His career is his life and he has no time time for love or women, so his relationships stop at a booty call in the on call room with Fantastic ending to the saga Having read all the Stone Brothers book now I really can’t decide which brother I like the most. This one follows Kyle... a doctor in a busy ER dept. He’s caring, compassionate and wants the best for his patients. Like his brothers, he’s inherited his wealth but apart from his luxurious apartment, you wouldn’t know he was worth millions. His career is his life and he has no time time for love or women, so his relationships stop at a booty call in the on call room with his colleague Gina... That is until a scared, beautiful and heavily pregnant young woman shows up outside his ER with complications. There’s something about her that endears him to her. She’s timid, frightened and guarded but as he gets her to open up they start to bond. Alone with no friends or family, Kyle is worried that she’s destitute or possibly homeless, so he gives her his personal number in case she needs further help. After being discharged and ordered to take it easy, Kyle thinks that will be the last he sees of the beautiful stranger but a turn of events sees Elizabeth’s condition worsen and she ends up on strict bed rest in the hospital. Assigned to look after her care Kyle and Elizabeth’s relationship starts to stray beyond that of a patient and doctor and their obvious feelings for each become hard to ignore... but a hospital is not the best place for any intimacy, especially in Elizabeth’s condition. However, their connection is deep and built on more than just sex. When her baby is born... (sweetest thing ever!!!)... Kyle is instantly in love and even though he’s never factored kids or family into his future, he wants to look after Elizabeth and the baby. But life is never that easy... and just when he thought everything in his life is becoming clear and planned his future is flipped on its head and the two people he loved and cared for are gone without a trace. The second part of the book jumps 6months ahead. Kyle is still coming to terms with losing Elizabeth and the baby. He’s thrown himself back into his career and despite all his best efforts, locating Elizabeth seems near impossible. She’s gone... or has she? Maybe he’s just been looking in the wrong places or for the wrong person. That’s as much of the story as I will tell... but it certainly has you reaching for the tissues or yelling at the pages. It’s a sweet and endearing story that tackles many poignant issues. I’ve enjoyed all the Stone Brothers books and I love the way it keeps the same characters throughout so you feel like you get to know them all individually... but it also means you don’t ever want them to end. I’d love for the sagas to continue because they are so well written that you feel like you know all of these people. As usual, these are real page turners and I’ve loved reading all of them. On to Caden’s story now as I can’t get enough of them!!

Kyle is a Dr. But above all he is a protector. He helps other less fortunate and his heart is a beautiful place that even I would like to take residence up in. Does that make sense? Read this book and you will know why I say that. Lexi (Elizabeth) is a frightened and pregnant woman who is all alone and trusts no one. She has complications with her pregnancy but cannot afford medical treatment however making it to the hospital, all she can do is sit outside praying the baby will be ok. She has to protect her baby at all cost. Kyle walks a patient out and sees this fragile woman sitting and clearly in pain. She confesses what she has being experiencing and without hesitation Kyle takes her inside where they can examine her. What he doesn’t realise at the time is that Elizabeth will be his undoing. Who is she? What is her story? She is everything a man would want and more but he cannot allow himself to think about her in that way because she is his patient and he knows nothing about her. Who is the baby’s father and why is he not here with her? She has secretes and for good reason. Will her past catch up with her? Will she ever be #Free? This book is so beautiful. The story line was so captivating. What Kyle and Lexi had to go through to be where they were in the end was a miracle. It felt like my heart wanted to jump out of my body a couple of times. 5 ❤’s awarded to this brilliant author. Samantha... I wish I could have half of the imagination that you do. The passion, emotion and dedication is flawless. Now I cannot wait for Cadens story... It’s going to be #Epic

    Get ready for a new Favorite I just discovered Samantha Christy and she had become my new favorite. The characters are so well developed and real. The love is so deep and real, and everything a woman had ever dreamed of. I read the men on fire trilogy backwards and then started this trilogy with the last book first. She is so good it's okay to read them in whatever order you like! And yet they all combine into one world. It is truly amazing her work is the best I've come to know.

The love is so deep and real, and everything a woman had ever dreamed of. I read the men on fire trilogy backwards and then started this trilogy with the last book first. She is so good it's okay to read them in whatever order you like! And yet they all combine into one world. It is truly amazing her work is the best I've come to know. And trust me when I say I read a lot! I work at a library and have always dreamed of being an author. Books are my obsession! Samantha Christy is the best! I'm one of the people that has triggers, so that's why I read the stories in the order I did. It helps me to know that the characters wound up okay, happy, whole, and with the good guy. I also like to challenge myself though. I don't want to live my life held back by those triggers so I still read things when I'm in a good enough mental place. Samantha's books touch on sensitive subject and this book was harder than the other trilogy I have read but, it wasn't too hard. That is something I truly respect about her. She touched on these things but helps you through it. The other characters helping each other through tough things helps you through it also. It's incredible the things Samantha is able to do. She is pure magic, and I'm going to go but another one of her books now! Happy reading!!!

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I liked this a lot... I won a copy and now I want to go back and listen to the rest of the series since I think this is the last one about the Stone Brothers... and then I might head over to the baseball books! I believe this is my first Samantha Christy book and I will definitely check out more. ;-) Anyway, I did have some quibbles, which mainly involve the first half being a bit too long and a bit too earnest on Kyle's part.

I believe this is my first Samantha Christy book and I will definitely check out more. ;-) Anyway, I did have some quibbles, which mainly involve the first half being a bit too long and a bit too earnest on Kyle's part. Like, he is a DREAM doctor, and there are a TON of medical scenarios playing out that just go on a really long time. And no way would the scenario ever play out, I think, of a resident only being assigned to one patient. In a teaching hospital (or any hospital, really) doctors' time is super valuable, and I can't imagine a doctor being assigned to sit around for nearly a month with a patient who could pretty much be monitored by actual monitors and a nursing staff. But if you ignore that, it's very sweet. It's a change in format from the usual, where the entire first half is from the hero's POV and the second half from the heroine's, so that her secrets can be revealed extremely slowly. All the characters from previous books are there so now perhaps I'll find those and read or listen to their stories. The audiobook narration was very well done by Erin Mallon and Jason Clarke. I'd happily listen to either or both of them again as well.

    I found this through an advertisement on my Kindle.... I read a lot of romance novels and lately was hoping to find a doctor/patient theme. So even though no one I know read it, I decided to give it a go. It is part of the Stone Brothers series, but can be read as a stand alone. I never read the other books. It was okay. The female character was down on her luck and pregnant. Clearly hiding something. The doctor falls for her. She tries to stay a mystery and independent from him but the attraction I found this through an advertisement on my Kindle....

The doctor falls for her. She tries to stay a mystery and independent from him but the attraction is clear. The story is told in two consecutive parts - first from the male POV and then picks up and continues from the female POV. This was an easy transition and read smoothly. Not to spoil anything but the female character was independent and tried her best not to be a charity case in the beginning. This changes in the second half of the book. I wish she showed a bit more grit rather than wearing her heart on her sleeve. How could she"give him space" when she lived with him!? There was a minor sub-theme in the second half of the book that was surprising and interesting. Other than that, things were pretty boiler plate in terms of standard romances. I was turned off in the beginning because even though the two main characters were not together, there were too many sex scenes with the male's f*ck buddy. 3 stars... not fantastic, but not bad. Quick read.

    Again, not my favorite of the series. But I did like it slightly better than the last book. In this book, the final of the Stone Brothers meets his match. Kyle is a about to be a doctor, and while on his ER rotation, he meets a young pregnant woman, Elizabeth. Elizabeth needs to be hospitalized for the duration of her pregnancy and Kyle is assigned her doctor. The two bond and start to fall for each other. But when Elizabeth finds out Kyle has paid for her entire hospital stay, she's spooked and Again, not my favorite of the series. But I did like it slightly better than the last book.

Elizabeth needs to be hospitalized for the duration of her pregnancy and Kyle is assigned her doctor. The two bond and start to fall for each other. But when Elizabeth finds out Kyle has paid for her entire hospital stay, she's spooked and takes off with the baby. Six months later, she shows back up in Kyle's life. He now knows her real name (Lexi) and her story (abusive husband) and invites her into his home, but not into his heart. He doesn't want to risk the hurt. Not to mention she refuses to let her husband know where she and the baby are out of fear and Kyle doesn't want to settle. So they're kind of at an impasse. Lexi wants Kyle. Kyle wants Lexi. But he's afraid to let her in. The two eventually decide to make it work, of course. But it takes a lot of persistence on Lexi's part. Maybe too much. Kyle is such a good guy and I understand his impatience. But at the same time, he's dealing with an abused, traumatized woman with a new baby who has a physical disability. Maybe he should give her some time to work through some things.

    Wow, Samantha Christy has done it again! This is probably my favorite of the Stone Brothers (although I say that with each new release). The youngest Stone brother, Kyle, is a busy 2nd year medical resident who spends his time in a meaningless sexual relationship with another resident. When he meets a pregnant girl in trouble, Elizabeth, he starts to feel something more. What I love about the development of their relationship is that it's unconventional and platonic at first.

The youngest Stone brother, Kyle, is a busy 2nd year medical resident who spends his time in a meaningless sexual relationship with another resident. When he meets a pregnant girl in trouble, Elizabeth, he starts to feel something more. What I love about the development of their relationship is that it's unconventional and platonic at first. They become friends first which is why I think their relationship is so strong. This book also has a lot of angst when Elizabeth's past catches up to her. At some points, I wanted to punch Kyle for making some stupid choices but I know it had to be that way in the storyline. I love that we get a great deal of time with all the Mitchell sisters and Stone brothers in this one, much more than any of the other novels in this series. I loved seeing their family dynamic again. This is a really great book that does have an HEA but be prepared for the angst first! Honest review provided for advanced review copy.

    Really 4.5! Loved it, but Purple Orchids still stands out in my mind. I have had this on my KU list for a while, wishing I had read it earlier. However, I have Caden's story ready to go. Really well edited, which is so welcome after some not so well edited reads. Kyle is the last Stone brother to get his story. He is a second year resident, working through his rotations. While on the ER rotation, he meets Elizabeth, pregnant and secretive. Just as he moves to the OB rotation, she is admitted for Really 4.5! Loved it, but Purple Orchids still stands out in my mind.

Kyle is the last Stone brother to get his story. He is a second year resident, working through his rotations. While on the ER rotation, he meets Elizabeth, pregnant and secretive. Just as he moves to the OB rotation, she is admitted for bed rest. (Coincidence? I think not!) Anyway, they form an attachment, with both of them feeling the stirrings of love. Elizabeth is running from something, and takes off when she is discharged from the hospital with her new baby. Months pass, Kyle tries to move on and suddenly, Elizabeth is on his doorstep. How will he react? Will he let her in again? What exactly is she hiding? Or better yet, from whom? So glad I finally read this. So happy to see more of the previous characters - especially as they were fairly involved and not just visiting. Although I did feel that wrapping things up with Grant was a little rushed and a tad bit unsatisfying. Really love Ms. Christy's stories. Looking forward to Caden's story. Enjoy!

    Hot Doctor I just started reading Samantha Christy books. The Stone brothers was a good place to start. But Kyle stole my heart. I loved that even though he was wealthy. He didn’t feel a need to flaunt it, he was currently a intern at the hospital doing his residency. One day Kyle see Elizabeth sitting on bench in front of emergency dept. he asked if she needed help. Elizabeth was pregnant and bleeding. He got her in the hospital. She had an issue where she needed to stay off her feet. But Kyle Hot Doctor I just started reading Samantha Christy books.
