Not all good things must end... Angie Fox's Immortally Yours, Book one MASH series

This is the fourth review this week for Immortally Yours. Since it was this month's Book Club Selection, we each read it and give you our take on the book. I can definitely see where our personalities and preferences came out this time on how we enjoyed the book. We each liked it but had very different experiences with it. So with no further ado, here's my review...

Immortally Yours
Angie Fox

No one patches up the incoming wounded like Dr. Petra Robichaud. Recruited by the gods for her uncanny medical skills, she’s the best M*A*S*H surgeon in the army. Along with a nosy guard sphinx,vegetarian werewolf, and otherparanormal paramedics, she bandages soldiers who are built like Greek gods (literally). But when one sexy immortal ends up on her operating table—half dead and totally to-die-for—Petra’s afraid she’ll lose her patient and her heart…

Commander Galen of Delphi is one gorgeous but stubborn demi-god. When his spirit tries to slip out of his fatally wounded body, Dr. Petra has to slip it back in—unwittingly revealing her ability to see ghosts. Now that Galen knows her secret, he’s convinced she’s part of an ancient prophecy. If the oracles are right, Petra could lead Galen’s army to peace. And if he seduces her on the way to hell and back? Heaven knows—all’s fair in love and war…

Angie Fox pulled me in from the start with this engaging story. I did feel the stop and start a few times as the scenes didn't seem to flow along for me seamlessly but I was engaged in the characters. I found myself nearly enjoying the secondary characters more than Petra and Galen but I suspect I'll be reading the next book in the series and will see them again so that's a good thing. There was definitely much humor which is a take-it-or-leave-it for me (I'm the more serious one in our group) but what seemed lacking to me was the romance (I'm also the one in the group that leans most heavily on the romance). The author has started out a new series that I look forward to reading more of.
