Summary

She is his doctor. He will be her downfall. The best-selling phenomenon returns.... 

When Rachel meets Luc, the attraction is instant.

But she is a doctor, and he is her patient.

She gives him the drugs he needs—but in doing so, risks everything.

And when a secret is exposed, they’re both in the firing line.

Not all patients are telling the truth.

Narrator needs an drink of water

Terrible dry, sticky (ick) clicking narration. So revolting. Really hard to listen to her mouth noises. Is the microphone too close?
Who knows about the story.
Give the narrator a drink of water!
