ARC Review: ‘The Doctor Falls For Her Gargoyle’ by Cate Dean
I received a complimentary copy of the book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
The Doctor Falls For Her Gargoyleby Cate Dean, Kristen Painter
Series: A Nocturne Falls Universe story
Published by Sugar Skull Books on May 23rd 2017

Amazon Kindle | Amazon Paperback
Dr. Sophie Mead has a problem.
She's falling for one of Nocturne Falls' resident gargoyles: the tall, muscled, and sexy Elias Saunders.
But when Elias comes to her after being attacked, she has to put aside her attraction for him. What looks like a small mark on his left forearm is more than just a mark. His skin is turning to stone - and it's spreading.
Sophie enlists the help of an old family friend, and joins Elias on a desperate quest to find out what's happened to him, and how to stop it, before he becomes a statue. Permanently.
The Doctor Falls for Her Gargoyle was definitely different from the other stories I’ve read so far, where the female character has to rescue the male character. It’s a role reversal of damsel in distress story and I really enjoyed it. Poor Dr. Sophie Mead also is falling for the patient, Elias Saunders, who happens to be a gargoyle. He ends up getting attacked and now he is forced to see Dr. Sophie Mead for help. Unfortunately, it’s going to take more than Sophie to help Elias.
Overall, this was a quick story to read and I really loved the build up of the drama in the story. Like I said in the beginning it was different and I really enjoyed both characters. If you read Cate Dean’s first book to the Nocturne Falls Universe, you would recognize the secondary characters in the story because Elias happens to be the neighbor to Lidia Reston.
If you’re looking for a quick PNR book to read during the summer then I would recommend this book and the rest of the Nocturne Falls Universe stories.
I give this book 4 stars and look forward to reading even more books from Cate Dean in the near future.
When I'm not reading and reviewing, you can find me at my day job during the week and on the weekend taking care of our little farm.
