Die Story ist wirklich schön, und ob wohl ich nicht wirklich gut in Englisch bin hab ich fast alles verstanden, die medizinischen fach begriffe nicht aber die hätte ich wahrscheinlich auch auf deutsch nicht verstanden. Ich kann das Buch nur empfehlen, lässt sich leicht lesen und die spannung steigt mit jeder Seite.

Wunderbares sehr gefühlvoll geschriebenes Buch, das man nicht mehr aus der Hand legen kann. Empfehlenswert auch für Leute, deren englisch nicht 100%ig ist. Es ist sehr verständlich geschrieben und die Story zieht einen schnell in den Bann ... habe gleich die Fortsetzung bestellt !!!

Ich bin langsam dabei aufzugeben, einen ansprechenden, spannenden Roman zu finden, der entweder im Haupt- oder einen guten Nebenplot ein paar lesbische Frauen aufweist...

Die Idee von L.A. Metro gefällt mir. Der Anfang ist auch ganz okay, aber irgendwann weiß man, wer wen will und warum und warum sie sich erstmal nicht kriegen. Bis es dann doch schnell geht und sich die letzten 20-30% des Romans mit konstruierten Problemen und gegeseitigem Anschmachten ergehen. Ich finde die Charaktere zu blass und die Handlung zu flach. Die Konflikte sind sehr schwach und werden für meinen Geschmack nicht genug hergeleitet und gelöst. Es ist zu einfach für den jeweiligen "Gegenpart" den Konflikt zu knacken... (Ist nicht am Ende guter Sex die Lösung für alles?) daher habe ich irgendwann die Seiten nur noch quer gelesen.

Ich finde, man hätte mehr daraus machen können. Es wäre eine leichte, lockere Romanze geblieben. Aber daran ist ja nichts falsch!

Several months ago I read the fan fiction version of this story online and was sorry to see it withdrawn from the web due to publishing. Some weeks ago I had the opportunity to read the published book, called "L.A. Metro". And honestly, I really, really like what R.J. Nolan did with this story. She worked hard on improving an already nice to read story to a really good and more than pleasant read. My only complaint is that the story is too short *g*

I really appreciate that Kim and Jess are grown-up women who fall in love. Both of them had hard times in their lives and find it hard to trust. But they are willing to work on these problems. Both are very likeable and human characters with strength and weaknesses.

The plot is good, the character building well done and overall this is a really good romance. I hand out four stars to this story and would love to see more books from R.J. Nolan. Well done.

Dr. Kimberly Donovan is a thirty-something psychatrist – and she's ready to start over as far away from her ex-lover as possible. After being involved in a debate about her ethics, her lover, the ER Chief of Memorial Hospital where Kim worked at, leaves her and even denies their relationship. She ends up in L.A. Metropolitan Hospital, more than ready to move on, professionally as well as personally.

On her first day at work she learns, that her new job entails being the ER psych consult – a job no one in her department seems to want. Chief of the ER is Dr. Jess McKenna. She is known throughout the hospital as
controlled, cold and unreachable. Not the best start for Kim on the new job it seems but when she meets Jess, she's attracted to her right from the start. Wary because of her instant attration and quite sure that she's not
interested in yet another affair with an ER Chief, she focuses on finding her place in her new department and getting on good working grounds with Dr. McKenna.

Jess feels equally attracted to the new doctor in the psych department, however, she's been burned with an inter-office relationship as well and has been the focus of gossip ever since.

Both women decide to keep their professional distance and focus on work instead. Along the way they become close friends who admire each other for being really good medical professionals – and both can't help slowly falling in love with the other.

L.A. Metro is a really entertaining read that I'd like to recommend to anyone who's interested in reading about grown-up women with pasts and a professional life that's important to them. I really cared about both characters
and liked their way of interaction. These women know what they want and have been burned for it in the past. Despite that, they are still willing to take risks – both professionally and in their private lives.

My only complaint is, that I'd have loved to learn more about the plots of the secondary characters and the hospital in general, e.g. in the beginning, when Kim starts out on the job there's a lot of conflict between the different departments and later on we get to know a young resident that struggles with managing her family and her career. She talks to both protagonists – Jess as her boss and Kim because she's a willing listener. Unfortunately, we don't get to know her better and just assume that she managed somehow. And then there's Jess' sister ... But that complaint is not something that couldn't be corrected in a sequel.

Other than this minor thing I really enjoyed the book and will certainly read it again.
