Series: The Core Four #2
Genres: Contemporary Romance
Dr. Turner Brooks may be the professional brother, but he's also the adrenaline junkie. When he meets Annabelle, a girl scared to death of veering from the path she’s paved for herself, all he wants to do is push her out of that comfort zone.
Annabelle has already lost too much. She wants to stay focused on her new nursing job and away from unnecessary risks. Turner Brooks is exactly that – an unnecessary risk. She’s heard the rumors about him flying around the hospital, describing him as a “womanizer” or “sex god.” Yeah, she doesn’t need that.
Still, Turner tries to teach her that life is full of risks worth taking. As they grow closer and she begins to let go, the unexpected happens.
Will they be able to recover from that surprising fastball or could this be the final strike out?

Author: Stacy Borel
Turner was difficult to like. He was a selfish manwhore for the start of the book. It was a well known fact around the hospital where he worked. Not really an attractive quality. Annabelle is afraid of relationships because her parents died. I found it difficult to connect with either of these characters really. I thought Annabelle was really overreacting by avoiding all relationships. I also didn’t like that Turner was a bit cold and distant.
So, what did I like about Slider? I liked the ways Turner tried to push Annabelle’s boundaries. Their dates were creative and pretty unique! I liked the connection between Annabelle and the baby. It was really good symbolism for her own feelings. Overall this is a good contemporary romance. It wasn’t anything fresh or new, but its well written and a pretty quick read.
