The Doctor's Forbidden Temptation
Hot Brazilian Docs #3
By Tina Beckett
Releasing September 1st, 2017
Harlequin Medical

In The Doctor's Forbidden Temptation (Hot Brazilian Docs #3) by Tina Beckett, being the sister of his best friend, Natalia Texeira, is off limits for Dr. Adam Cordeiro. However, with the pair working together, he's finding it harder and harder to keep his hands off the woman. Will Adam be able to win Natalia's heart and keep his friendship with her brother, or will they go their separate ways because they can't seem to overcome their past demons?

I love sitting down to read a medical romance penned by Ms. Beckett, as she's a fantastic author whose books I get so engrossed in that I find I'm at the last page of one of her stories before I even realize and this is a series that I have been absolutely charmed by. Because the heroes are hot and irresistible and the heroines have been through so much and deserve their happy ever after, which is absolutely true with this couple. Right from the beginning, this book had me smiling because of the hero's reaction to the heroine and how surprised he is when he comes face-to-face with her. Will the heroine be able to talk her way out of the situation?

As for the dialogue, it was intense due to the medical drama and the main characters back stories, especially the heroine because of what she's been through that has made both her family and Adam protective of her. Yet, I liked how she's overcome her past and is determined to be the best doctor she can be, which is proven by how she helps one particular patient that is all but ready to give up due to what he's going through. Will their talks help? I also liked how strong and brave the heroine was and that she stood up to her brother when she needed to, especially when it came to her relationship with Adam.

While the hero, he's confident, a great doctor and I liked how determined he was to win the heroine over, even though he knows being with the heroine could destroy his friendship with his best friend and that the heroine could end up being hurt if she discovers things about his past. I also liked how he wasn't afraid to ask for help from the heroine when it came to helping a patient, especially when the heroine has first-hand experience with what Adam's patient is going through and that she was the best person that could help his patient make the right decision when it came to the man's future.

Overall, Ms. Beckett has penned a really good read in this book where the chemistry between this couple was strong, the romance delightful and showed how good these two are for each other; and the ending had me loving the advice the heroine received because without a doubt she needed to make things right with the hero after how she treated him. However, it was the epilogue that wrapped this story up nicely, as we discover how far this couple have come in their relationship and how happy they are. I would recommend The Doctor's Forbidden Temptation by Tina Beckett, if you enjoy medical romances, the brother's best friend trope, or books by authors Amy Ruttan, Annie O'Neill and Amalie Berlin.

"Nata…we can't do this."   

To Dr. Adam Cordeiro, Natália Texeira has always been off-limits. As his best friend's sister, and a cancer survivor, he's felt a duty to protect her. But the doctor he meets on her first day at Santa Coração Hospital is all grown-up and far too tempting… 

Natália has always had a crush on Adam, but he has a playboy's reputation! Nevertheless, when their forbidden passion becomes irresistible, Natália is compelled to discover what's really holding Adam back from giving his heart…
