Prima Donna is a twist on your average new adult, in which a feisty hairdresser and a playboy pediatrician fall in love.
Regan Burke’s world is falling apart. Her mother’s medical bills were already difficult to handle, but now her landlord has decided to sell the salon space she rents. The last thing she wants is to be forced into having a good time, but then Carter Scott shows up as she’s packing, and the next thing she knows, she’s actually enjoying his company. But when Carter offers Regan a temporary job at his clinic, it’s strictly professional – hands off. But what if Regan and Carter are just what the other needs?
The story builds nicely and the characters are well-developed. Despite that, I didn’t feel a strong connection to anything that was happening, which is reflected in my rating. There wasn’t anything overtly wrong, so I feel a little bad about not liking it as much as I wanted to. Maybe it’s just because I’ve been reading a lot of books like this recently and I’m getting a little burned out.
The thing that I appreciated the most was that Laura Drewry really nailed what it’s like to work in a medical office. The crazy things that happen, the way patients act, the way the family of the patient acts… it’s like she was pulling directly from my memories!
Prima Donna is recommended for anybody who enjoys a cute romance. Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for the free copy.
Final rating: ★★★☆☆
