Unethical by Jennifer Blackwood

Buy this book now on Amazon

Unethical is the first in the Drexler University series by Jennifer Blackwood. I picked up a copy of Unethical on sale on Amazon months ago and just got around to reading it this last week.

This book focuses a lot on the ethics behind doctor assisted suicide. Two years ago Payton Daniels mother was terminally ill with cancer and committed suicide by overdosing on morphine. Payton’s doctor father was arrested and is in jail awaiting trial for helping his wife commit suicide. After her mother’s death and father’s arrest Payton takes off to Florida and changes her last name. Now her scholarship money in Florida has run out and she must return home to Drexler University in order to finish her undergrad and go to medical school. 

Payton is surprised to run into the boy she left behind. Blake has been looking for Payton since she left and now that he has found her he doesn’t know how to react. He hates her and still loves her at the same time. This is the story of Payton and Blake trying to figure out if they are meant to be together and navigating the pitfalls of trying to get into medical school. 

Overall this was a good book. There were parts of the plot I could have done without and parts I wanted more of. I am still undecided if I want to read the 2nd book in the series. 

Love burns hotter the second time around…

Two years ago, the medical world was shaken by scandal, and Payton Daniels's family was at the center of it. The second she graduated, Payton left everything behind―her high school sweetheart, her family, and the controversy surrounding her mother's death—and hid within the anonymity of college. But Payton’s ex, Blake Hiller, hasn't forgiven her for leaving, and when he enrolls in the same medical ethics class, she panics. She can’t run the risk of him telling everyone who she really is.

As if being at the same university isn’t enough, both Blake and Payton land the same internship. Forced together, their passion for each other reignites, but when Payton is asked to testify in her father’s high-profile trial, she must choose between risking her acceptance into medical school to help her father, and losing every connection to her past—including the only guy she’s ever loved.
