☆★ REVIEW ๐Ÿพ ARC ★☆ MEDICINE MAN BY SAFFRON A. KENT

22 September 2018

TITLE: Medicine man 
AUTHOR: Saffron A. Kent
GENRE: Romance
PUBLICATION: September 27th, 2018
Willow Taylor lives in a castle with large walls and iron fences. But this is no ordinary castle. It’s called Heartstone Psychiatric hospital and it houses forty other patients. It has nurses with mean faces and techs with permanent frowns.

It has a man, as well. A man who is cold and distant. Whose voice drips with authority. And whose piercing gray eyes hide secrets, and maybe linger on her face a second too long. 

Willow isn’t supposed to look deep into those eyes. She isn’t supposed to try to read his tightly leashed emotions. And neither is she supposed to touch herself at night, imagining his powerful voice and that cold but beautiful face.

No, Willow Taylor shouldn’t be attracted to Simon Blackwood, at all. 

Because she’s a patient and he’s her doctor. Her psychiatrist. 

The medicine man. 

WARNING: This book discusses sensitive issues including but not limited to, depression and suicide.

MEDICINE MAN: 
Is a full length, a taboo romance novel by Saffron A. Kent. In this we meet Willow Taylor and Simon Blackward.

Release Date: September 27th, 2018
Genre: Romance
Actual Rating: 3.5 stars

Eighteen year old Willow is a patient at Heartstone Psychiatric hospital where it houses forty other patients within it’s private facility, thirty three year old Simon is her Psychiatrist. 
Due to a roof incident she’s been admitted as a patient for the next four weeks so they can monitor her for suicidal tendencies and righting her medication. 
Willow was such a complex character, many years she actually thought she was born a witch, she is nothing like her family members, and was convinced at the age of eleven that they would come for her like they did with Harry Potter, at the age of fourteen she was diagnosed with clinical depression, instead of going to her dream school of magic she ends up at Heartstone Psychiatric Hospital at the age of eighteen. 

Simon was a hard man to bond with, his father founded Heartstone Psychiatric Hospital, he was closed off due to his upbringing which made him into the man he is today, in some ways I never really gelled with his character. He never really took life by the horns and lived, until Willow, she slowly brought him back to life.

This was a long book, and I think if it was cut in half it would’ve kept my attention throughout and my rating would've been a lot higher, the first few chapters I loved, all the feels in the world, then it just lagged in places, up until you reach over half way it picked up again, when she’s released from the ward all the feels came rushing back again and I fell in love with her character all over again. 

I went into this expecting either it was going to be a wee bit dark or it would take a walk down looney bin lane with it being set in a Psychiatric hospital but neither of these things happened, but it still didn't take away me loving the Heroine in this book, she was quirky and nerdy, strong and feisty, a full out Harry Potter fan, from her tee shirts with quotes to her carrying around one of her most loved books of the series. Though her inner dialogue took away some of the enjoyment of reading as some of the scenes were too drawn out and I found myself zoning out. 

So even though my rating is somewhat low I did come away with loving some of this book.
