This felt like an early NR Walker without some of the polish of her later works but it was still enjoyable. I think it worked because of the straight, clean, it-is-what-it-is story. A doctor without a life and a painter who is live wire come together in a house in a small town. Their relationship began fairly fast and there was a lot of sex but thank goodness it didn't get boring or overdone. In fact, it's very hot without being crude. Nathan's family and the little we saw of the hospital staff were sweet.
