After a very trying surgery Dan Newman, surgeon, literally bowled over Gayla Levin in the hospital hallway. All Gayla wanted to do was deliver an envelope to her estranged domineering father Dr. Eli Levine; she is not happy to find herself laying on the floor.
Dan was immediately attracted to Gayle. Gayle thinks all doctors have a “God complex” but still the attraction hits her.
Dan has a physical handicap, so much so, Dr Levine tried to persuade him not to become a surgeon. Gayle’s handicap is not physical but emotional and mental. Dan has overcome his handicap but just as in life, Dan is thrown a curse ball to overcome.
Gayle picked herself up out of the bottle and pills to try to redeem her life, to make a difference in others lives, Dan can give the support she needs. Mrs. Jacobs portrayed the sexual tension, frustration, and family discord very well.
The attraction between Dan and Gayle was fire hot. Their thoughts about each both could melt cold steel. The love scenes burn up the pages.
