Life Support by Candace Calvert - book review



Life Support by Candace Calvert About the Book:
Nurse Lauren Barclay put her life on hold to keep a watchful eye on her troubled sister. It’s why she’s back in Houston. But that means confronting the brooding physician assistant who caused painful turmoil in her family—and left Lauren with memories her heart can’t forget.

PA and single parent Elijah Landry is no stranger to stormy relationships, including one with his father, who is threatening him with a restraining order. It won’t stop Eli from protecting his disabled brother—or from making peace with Lauren. He wants that and so much more.

But as Lauren and Eli draw closer, a powerful hurricane roars toward Houston. Survival instincts take priority and everything changes. Can hope weather the storm?

My Thoughts:
Lauren Barclay has put her life on hold so she could keep watch over her troubled younger sister, Jess. Eli Landry has his own set of huge familial problems. How in the world can these two ever get together? Especially when so much gets in their way? There were many times I thought it would never happen. With Lauren so wrapped up in her sister's life, I didn't think she'd ever stop long enough to seize the opportunity to get to know Eli better. 

While I did enjoy the character development of Lauren, Eli, Emma, Drew, and even Yonner, I seriously did not like her sister Jess. I understand - to a point - wanting to help your relatives, but I guess my familial bonds aren't that strong. Still, I did like so many other things about the novel - Gayle, Drew, Vee, Eli's mother - I found those subplots very interesting and they kept me intrigued. In all, I would recommend this to a friend.
