Whose Bed Is It Anyway? by Natalie Anderson hooked me right from the very beginning. It tells the story of James Wolfe, a doctor from Manhattan who spends most of his time out of the country, helping people in poor countries and taking part in rescue missions. He’s been hailed a hero, but he doesn’t see it that way. He’s just doing his job.
When he arrives home after a mission, focussed on one thing – sleep, he’s not happy to find someone in his bed. Not even when he discovers that the someone is a very attractive woman. After a heated discussion and a misunderstanding, James and his house guest, Caitlin, come to an agreement. They both need the bed, they both need sleep. So they’ll share until they can come up with another solution.
James and Caitlin are reluctant, but muddle through the arrangement out of necessity. James has no intention of leaving his own apartment, and Caitlin is in hiding and doesn’t have the money to go anywhere else. As the two of them get to know one another, things become both easier and harder. Soon, keeping to their respective sides of the bed proves impossible. But they have complicated lives, aren’t looking for a relationship… and yet, they can’t keep their hands off one another. So, deciding to just have a fling while they’re both in New York is the sensible solution. Or is it?
James and Caitlin are great characters. Both feisty and determined, they often clash, but as we’re given more and more of their back stories, things become much more apparent. I very much enjoyed the book – the storyline is interesting, the writing easy to digest and very engaging, the sex hot, and the romance perfectly swoon-worthy. I’ve never read anything by this author before, but I’ll definitely look out for her stuff in future. Recommended for romance fans.
