Title: Hell & Back (Outbreak Task Force #5)
Author: Julie Rowe
I will admit I am a fan of Julie Rowe and her ability to mix medical, romance, mystery and suspense. Most of her books there is a pretty good balance and other times the romance will take over the story but in end will never disappoint.
Henry Lee is a characters readers have been waiting to read. He is a bit of a mystery that readers have come to adore in the series and hope he is finally able to find peace and love in his life. Ruby is a character who readers will be able to connect with at times and other will have them scratching their heads.
The author medical background gives this story a very honest and real feeling. The story can be read as a stand alone or part of the series. Either way readers will love this story !!
Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher the the copy of Julie Rowe Hell and Back.

She knows her prickly—yet very hot—boss, Henry, could provide the help she needs.
