SHE HAS NO TIME FOR LOVE Dr. Gen Kendall has paid too high a price to let anything get in the way of her dream. In one month she’ll be a full-fledged doctor. She just has to impress her chief of staff, Dr. Jack O’Neill. She impresses him, all right. With one swing of a softball bat she puts him in his own hospital and changes both of their lives forever.

HE HAS NO TASTE FOR LOVE A widower with a 12-year-old daughter, Jack hopes this move to Chicago will signal a new life for them both. He doesn’t plan on finding himself literally at the feet of one of the most compelling women he’s ever known.

    Introducing yourself to your new boss by putting him into intensive care is usually not the best way for a first impression, but when Gen Kendall does exactly that during a softball game, no one can imagine the outcome.

Her boss Jack, the new head of the pediatric intensive care unit is a widower with a 12 year old daughter. Chemistry between him an Gen flares almost immediately, but guilt keeps them apart. When Gen and her familiy take Jack's daughter under their wings things really become complicated. A wonderful story, fairly realistic with inspiring characters.

    Dr. Gen Kendall hits a homerun (not) when she accidentally knocks out her new boss, chief of staff Dr. Jack O’Neill, during their house staff softball game. Yikes, what a first meeting! But something about Gen calls to Jack, especially later when she offers to take his 12-year-old daughter home and care for her while he's stuck recuperating at their hospital. But, Gen is leaving in a month to go back home and Jack is a still grieving widower with a young daughter to care for, so they absolutely Dr. Gen Kendall hits a homerun (not) when she accidentally knocks out her new boss, chief of staff Dr. Jack O’Neill, during their house staff softball game. Yikes, what a first meeting! But something about Gen calls to Jack, especially later when she offers to take his 12-year-old daughter home and care for her while he's stuck recuperating at their hospital. But, Gen is leaving in a month to go back home and Jack is a still grieving widower with a young daughter to care for, so they absolutely cannot give into the attraction that springs up between them. And when Gen observes something troubling about Jack's lovely young daughter, something she knows she has to tell him but doesn't want to, for fear of breaking his already grieving heart, it will just be another obstacle in the way of what could be happiness and love. I've really been enjoying reading the Korbel Classics series, but Some Men's Dreams is head and tail above all its predecessors. It was an emotional roller coaster of a story. There are lots of heavy subjects to be dealt with here. Aside from Jack's grief, there is the distressing common link between Gen and Jack's daughter, Elizabeth, there's the serious guilt that Jack's been repressing, and even more that I won't list. But Eileen has a deft hand with all these subjects, never allowing the emotional toll to be too much for the reader or the characters. I love how well Gen, Jack and Elizabeth mesh with each other and I especially love just how well drawn the author made each of the three. There's heat here, too, but in a subtle way that doesn't overwhelm or disappear from the story. All in all, I found Some Men's Dreams to be a superbly crafted story that's not really a romance, but a journey taken by Jack, Gen, and Elizabeth. A journey of healing and love. A beautiful journey!

    Unforgettable Romance This is a wonderful story that ties in to a couple of the author's other novels; Jake's Way, Simple Gifts. This is a moving novel that is far from a simple romance. Like all of this author's work, there are several layers of plot and all are explored fully. All of the characters are deep and fully developed. The books ends well, but leaves the reader wanting more. I have read several of this author's books and have enjoyed them all.

    Dr. Gen Kendall first meets Dr. Jack O’Neill when she knocks him out with a softball during the attending-physicians game. There is an immediate attraction, but he fights it, not just because he’s her new boss, but he is still dealing with the pain and guilt of losing his wife and he has to put his daughter Elizabeth first. Gen, Jack, and Elizabeth have all known pain and most of it self inflicted. This is tough story that deals with drunk driving, babies dying, and anorexia.

Gen, Jack, and Elizabeth have all known pain and most of it self inflicted. This is tough story that deals with drunk driving, babies dying, and anorexia. There were plenty of lighter humorous moments to balance out the darker elements of the story. Because of all that Gen, Jack, and Elizabeth went through it made them stronger in the end.

    When Gen was on the playing field she never expected to knock out her chief of staff but that is exactly what she did. It didn't help that they were goading her and that was something that got to her every time. She felt so bad about hitting him in the head with the ball and the affect it had on his daughter. When he came to he was captivated with Gen and all for the wrong reasons. His libido picked a fine time to kick in now he has Gen on the mind but will it turn into something much more?

    What an evocative writer! This author’s writing is almost poetic. Even the hot sexy scenes were not the raw, gritty, erotica of other romances. It was more like a sexy movie – a shadowed limb, a kiss, a sigh, a caress. I was just swept up in the story of 3 broken people who must somehow deem themselves to be worthy of love. Have a box of tissues handy!

    I loved this story. What a beautifully written and poignant story as we all want to find love but not when a child maybe sick . Such a well written storyline and the author is outstanding. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    This is a great romance that's jam packed with emotions. Jack and Gen's story is full of sweetness, drama, humor, heartache and love. So very enjoyable and quite touching. This is my truthful and completely voluntary review.

    When I opened this book I immediately thought Meh, another doctor falls in love with superior doctor with child romance. I was, oh, so wrong. This book is filled to the brim with deep complex characters, humour (A Naked Michelangelo David in the bathroom eg.), feeling, and engaging issues! It seems I more and more rarely can get through books without stopping every now and then sighing about the use of overused clichés, flat characters, copycat characters, overused plots, overused themes, but once When I opened this book I immediately thought Meh, another doctor falls in love with superior doctor with child romance. I was, oh, so wrong. This book is filled to the brim with deep complex characters, humour (A Naked Michelangelo David in the bathroom eg.), feeling, and engaging issues! It seems I more and more rarely can get through books without stopping every now and then sighing about the use of overused clichés, flat characters, copycat characters, overused plots, overused themes, but once I got through the sighs in the beginning (Oh it's the new, handsome doctor; Oh he's the HEAD new, handsome doctor; Oh, he's got a kid; Oh the kid's mother is dead; Oh she just happens to be the only one who can step up and take care of the kid) I read the whole thing through with no more sighing. Why? Not because the clichés stopped coming, but because I came to love the depth of the characters (especially the heroine and the kid), the humour which is almost always there but not to the extreme this-iss-just-silly-why-am-i-reading-this-phase, and finally because of the "OMG, that cannot be true, I NEED to know this ends well". Still, little nitpicky me is at times slightly annoyed by the very much overemphasized love(/physical attraction/obsession) our heroine at times is showing for the hero. BUT, mark my words, this is the ONLY fault I found in this book. Therefore 5 stars. Therefore I'm putting it on my very selective "to get in paperback"-list. And it also happens I'm on the hunt for the rest of the books in this series.
