    I loved this book is was so good! It was hot!!!! It was funny and sexy as all get out! Adam was a such a sweetheart but so closed off for letting anyone love him besides his sister. Amanda (Angel as what Adam calls her) bless her heart she hates Valentine's Day she can't stand the looks of people being all gooey eyed and getting flowers and chocolate! Then Adam comes along from a terrible accident and now he's being cared for by Amanda when he first see's her he calls her Angel he can't explain it and sometimes Cupid is there the shoot you in the ass whether you believe in that type of thing or not! Amanda isn't sure either what is happening but she can't suppress herself from him and with a little help from these sneaky friends well let's just say holy hotness! Tiffany one of Amanda's friends at the hospital cracked me up!!!!! I can't wait for another book to see how Jenny and Jake unfolds you get a small snippet at the end so even though this is NOT a cliffhanger I can't wait for the next one.I so have to put my favorite crack up that managed to make me spit my drink out!!!!So when Amanda is done doing her job she comes back to the nurses station and there is a bunch of co'workers standing there just waiting to say something to her.And leave it to Tiffany when she says "Did you enjoy that fine slab of beef?" And all the nurses started to chuckle.Amanda could tell her face was on fire. Leave it to Tiffany to be the first one to grill her on the subject. "Uh yeah, he was good!" She replied when everyone started to laugh even harder."Oh my God, No....I didn't mean it like that!" It was a complete slip of the tongue." She tried to explain, but no matter what she said they laughed even harder."Yeah, I bet your tongue slipped right into his mouth!" Tiffany teased.I loved Tiffany holy moses that woman she tries her best to push Amanda in the right direction but will Amanda make the right choice and give Adam a chance? I don't know you have to read it and find out!!!!! Excellent job Melanie James!

    Loved this sweet Valentine romance! It was a perfect Sunday read in one sitting...just how I love them!Beautifully written story by debut author Melanie James. Ms. James style of writing of bringing the characters into your heart keeps you turning the page. Both Adam and Amanda have scars in their hearts and reasons for not loving before. But their chemistry is unstoppable. A story of falling in love at first sight...or fate that brings these two souls together. And what a pair they make! Sweetness and Steam and a Surprise!A must read! Looking forward to more of Ms. James writing. An author who is definitely on my TBR list!

    This was the first time I have read this author and wont be the last, I really enjoyed the story and thought the writing was good, I love that when Adam and Amanda meet they knew they had something and even though Amanda was not use to having someone want her or her wanting someone they were honest with each other and said what they felt, I really liked that they did not jump into bed right away and got to know each other. This is a very sweet story and think you should read it.

    Wow, this was such a great book! The second page into the book and I was already on the edge of my seat with a tear getting ready to fall and talking to myself asking "What!? Why!?" And of course I just had to read more. This had me hooked from the first chapter, heck even the first page. Adam is a police officer and Amanda is a nurse, neither have been in love with anyone or even given the chance to find love as they both took their previous individual responsibilities seriously. Once they had no more excuses other than being afraid to take a chance on love, an accident happens. Will they have the guts to take what they want and find love for Valentine's Day?Ms. James certainly knows how to write an excellent book. It was sad, sexy and funny in all the right spots. I loved all the characters, the book was really well edited and the cover is beautiful, what more could you ask for? Oh, I about the second book coming out soon!Happy reading and I hope everyone picks this up, you won't be let down.

    The storyline grabs you from the beginning and draws you in. Adam is a young man who is a cop took on the responsibility to care for his younger sister Jenny after their parents died in a car crash. Amanda is a young woman who has suffered a share of losses. She has never been in love and thinks Valentine's Day is for people who've been "dropped on their heads". Adam ends up in the hospital as one of Amanda's patients,and when the two of them meet, it's like they are in their own world. Adam comes to me as a closed off person but very much a sweet heart, very loveable character. I love how these two start to slowly connect, and you can feel the love growing.THIS IS A MUST READ BOOK. Loved this book

    This is a story about Amanda who has never had a boyfriend or Valentine because of taking care of her ill parents, never had any free time. and after the death of her parents, she becomes a nurse on the Surgery Ward.Adam is a policeman who has taken care of his sister, Jenny, since their parents were killed in a car accident. He never has had any serious relationships because of that. Adam and his partner, Jake went into a store and Adam was shot where a robbery was taking place.Amanda has Adam as one of her patients and she's instantly attracted to him and Adam is attracted to her and calls her his Angel.Melanie takes us on a rollercoaster ride with Amanda and Adam-great story line and even though it's a short story, grabs you right in until the end-in fact you hate to have it end and it has hot sexy scenes too. So looking forward to Jenny and Jakes story-that should be a fantastic read too.

    Melanie sure knows how to write a good story. She draws you in fast with her amazing characters and story line. Adam and Amanda are both easy to fall in love with. Once you start reading, you won't want to put it down until you finish it. Adam is a young man who took on the responsibility of taking care of his younger sister after their parents died in a car crash. Amanda is just a single young woman who has never been in love and thinks Valentine's Day is for people "dropped on their heads". When the two meet, it's like the world and everyone in it just moves aside. I won't tell you much more, except... You NEED to read this. This story will pull at your heart strings and having you cheering at the end.

    I really loved A Valentine's Surprise. When I started reading it was like i was there watching everything going on. It drew me in and I couldn't put it down. When the sponge bath took place I could feel the blushing in her cheeks . I'm gonna be just like Mrs Martinez when I get older..LOL . Adam and Amanda had the instant attraction, the love at first site. I feel like alot is going to take place when the next books come out and I can't wait to see what happens with Jenny and Jake, because of the friendship with Adam and her innocents,, He protected her and loves her. I think the Love will over come it all.I would recommend this book to anyone it is a must read.

    This book is definitely a must read. It's humorous as well as sexy. The storyline draws you in instantly. Adam is a cop who suffered a terrible loss leaving him to look after his younger sister. This also kept him from finding love. Amanda is a nurse whom never had a Valentine or even someone to celebrate the holiday with. Melanie wrote a wonderful fast paced, steamy read.

    This is a short read but with a lot to say. You have a great sexy guy Adam who is a police officer that truly wants to see people safe and takes his job seriously, then there is Amanda a nurse who also is so intend that she help people that are sick in the hospital, she is a nurse. Neither one thinks much of Valentines day each for their own reasons. They are so destine to be together Then there is Adam’s sister Jenny, who has depended in Adam since their parents died. Adams partner Jake is also in this story. So we have 4 characters all a part of making this a great read . It is hard to do a review with out giving away the story, I can just say it is so worth it and hope to read about the other characters in the future . This is the type story that takes you away

    Great readThis is the first time I have read a book from this author... it was short but well written.Amanda is a nurse. Adam is a cop who is shot in the line of duty. While recuperating Amanda and Adam falls for each other. He is looking for a woman who has a good work ethic and he finds that in Amanda.I really enjoyed this story. You have sexy cops, pretty nurses, and a hot sponge bath scene. I just didn't like where the povs went back and forth so fast. One paragraph would be a person and the next another, etc. It confuses me a little. Anyway happy reading.

    This novella was awesome! Adam, while being a father figure to his sister Jenny, was a hot available bachelor... A guy in uniform to boot, just waiting for the right woman to 'ring his bell'. Not one to let any lady earn more than a one night stand, he was proven wrong when he met his nurse Amanda. She was everything he ever dreamed about. With Adam being her patient, Amanda had to broach the subject gingerly. She was as attracted to Adam as he was to her. He was her patient and she could risk losing her job if they were caught. Adam assured Amanda that his moves were sincere and she felt that. The mere flirting and feelings tethering on desire made you not want to put the book down. I felt myself in Amanda's place. I felt the desire burning, your inner self telling you this can't happen but your heart overtakes your mind. When you know, you know and Amanda knew this was her guy. Adam knew this was the woman he'd waited for all his life. Valentine's Day only threw fuel on the fire and proved the fact that these two were destined to be. You won't regret reading builds you up and make you believe in love. Kuddos to Melanie James for throwing a good romance our way. Adam and Amanda are a hot couple! I want more!!!!
