This was my first Cassia Brightmore read and it will not be my last I loved Lincoln Hospital and the twist at the end was brilliant, I so did not see it coming and I cannot wait for book 2 Cian is Dr Dexter, and absolutely amazing. He has a heart of gold and I cannot wait to see his character development in book 2 Athena is full of sass and I adore her. I can't wait to see her flourish in book 2 and come into her stride Together, Cian and Athena will be an amazing duo Bring on book 2
All a bit far fetched. Acclaimed surgeon dishes out his own justice on the operation table! Really!!! Contains very graphic scenes & course language. It also needs a good editor The twist at the end was unexpected and as this is a series of books it has some potential.
From the first page, you know that Cian is not a nice guy. He's an amazing and well respected surgeon, but he's also well known for being an a$$hole and it's a title he wears with pride. He also has a dark and vengeful side, one that only a handful of people know about. He's become a vigilante, serving up cruel and unusual punishment to those that have gotten away with their terrible crimes. What can I say about Athena? Not much because to be honest, I don't really remember her, other than she forgave Cian every time he treated her badly. Cian's personality and actions overshadow almost everyone and everything else in this story.
Sometimes I'm in the mood for a dark book and when I saw this one pop up, it sounded too interesting to dismiss. I did enjoy LINCOLN HOSPITAL, but I didn't love it. My main issue was in relation to the POVs. While this story is mainly told in Cian and Athena's POV, it also includes the POV of several other characters. That would be fine, except that the POV changes without any notice at all, which often left me confused. At one point the POV switched between three characters in as many paragraphs. I also noticed incomplete, extra and wrong words used here and there, so it could use an editor. LINCOLN HOSPITAL is the start of a new series and I believe it is the spin-off of her Darkness series. I don't think you need to read the other books first, but there was one chapter where the villains are talking about people and events that seemed unrelated to this story, and trying to figure out who and what they were talking about was useless. The story ends in a cliffhanger of sorts, in that while the story about the missing girls will continue, I don't think the next story will be about Cian and Athena. It feels like they got their HEA, as happy as they can be in a story such as this.
Paging Dr. O'Reilly, paging Dr. O'Reilly...Lincoln Hospital is bar far, my favorite book from Cassia. I was immediately drawn into the story. Cian was awesome, so awesome and yummy to boot. With all the teasers I've read, I thought for sure I wasn't going to like him, but I was wrong. I LOVED HIM!! I loved his darkness, how he commanded the attention and control of those around him. I loved everything he did and what he stood for. The way his twisted, and intelligent mind worked was beyond brilliant. This wasn't just a dark story, there was a lot of heat between the H and h. That alone was a plus for me, and this story wasn't lacking in the passion department. I felt their chemistry. I was rooting for them, for Athene to shine some of her light unto the darkness that was Cian. The twist at the end was fabulous. I'm a huge fan of Cassia. I've always thought her writing rocked, but this story blew me away. I cannot wait for more.
I don't know why I am ever shocked when I finish one of Cassia's books. Every time I read her books I say to myself "How?" "She looks and sounds so sweet" and wonder how she comes up with such twisted stuff.
Athena is starting her internship at Lincoln Hospital. She wants to be a cardiovascular surgeon. Unfortunately, the head best cardiovascular surgeon is Dr. Cain O'Reilly. Athena doesn't know what to think of him. He can be a huge jerk one minute. Then, the next he's not.
Dr. Cain O'Reilly is barely holding himself together. Every 23 days he goes hunting. He takes the scum that have gotten away with their crimes. O'Reilly and his team take care of them. Every month it's like clockwork. Except now 3 things are happening. 1-his urges are getting worse. It's getting harder for him to wait before his next victim. 2-there might be a mole in his group. 3-Athena. He doesn't do relationships. Athena is making him crazy. She makes him feel things he's not use to feeling. O'Reilly wants her to succeed and to protect her.
This book was fast paced. I read it in one day. I still am not sure how I feel about O'Reilly. One minute I want to hate him and the next minute I like him. Athena I liked the whole book. But, I wish she would've told her best friend and fellow intern Sabine to STFU and put her back into her place.
I was stoked to see a few people from Cassia's Darkness Series. They were still up to their horrible antics. Hopefully, in Flatline we'll get more and see what's going on. Cassia is definitely twisted. Can't wait to see what happens next after that ending.
