Summary:  On the eve of Jake Sinclair’s bachelor party, his best man surprises him with a fantasy maid named Amy. Clad in a bikini, she cleans his house and jump starts his heart. She's beautiful, smart, and compassionate. Why is a woman like this working as a fantasy maid? A few days later, his thoughts still distracted by the enigmatic Amy, Jake crashes his car and wakes in the hospital emergency room where his fantasy maid is now wearing scrubs and wielding a stethoscope. Is she a hallucination, or is his fantasy maid a doctor?

Review:  The novel begins with the main character, Amy, looking for the location of Jake's house. Unbeknownst to him, his best friend/soon to be brother-in-law, has hired Amy to be Jake's fantasy maid. Although he originally objects, Jake allows Amy to tidy his bedroom and iron his shirts. Amy and Jake find each other highly attractive, and they share a kiss. Later on in the story, Jake gets into a wreck, and to his surprise, Amy is by his side. Except she's his Doctor. I ended up enjoying this story a lot more than I thought I would. Towards the beginning of the novel, it seemed as if I was given way too much backstory, but it came together nicely and ended up being a good read!
