It Takes Practice by Willa Okati

Let doubters doubt! Fitz means to convince Nathan seven years isn’t too long to wait for a second chance at the love of a lifetime.

Dr Nathan Rey, general practitioner, has endured a case of broken heart syndrome for a handful of years and counting after his wild, bad-boy lover disappeared just before he received his licence. Though it’s got easier—one or two flights of erotic fancy a year instead of every night—Nathan couldn’t say it’s got better. He still can’t forget the charismatic Fitz, and no one he’s met since then could begin to compare.

Still, Nathan’s certain he would have someday stopped daydreaming and moved on. He would have found someone else. Filled the empty spots in his life, his heart, and his home. His bed.

That is, if his part-time nurse hadn’t eloped overnight.

If, unable to find someone local right away, he hadn’t called upon the services of a temp agency.

And if the nurse the agency sent to him, certified and licenced, had been anyone but Fitz himself, with far more than work on his mind.

Love isn’t always easy, and it’s very rarely simple. More often than not—it takes practice.

About the Author:

Willa Okati can most often be found muttering to herself over a keyboard, plugged into her iPod and breaking between paragraphs to play air drums. In her spare time (the odd ten minutes or so per day she's not writing) she's teaching herself to play the pennywhistle.

Willa has forty-plus separate tattoos and yearns for a full body suit of ink. She walks around in a haze of story ideas, dreaming of tales yet to be told. She drinks an alarming amount of coffee for someone generally perceived to be mellow.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly enjoyed it! 28 July 2013

There's so much fiction out there that's barely readable-much of it a step or two below the average fan fiction-that finding a story that's well written, engaging, believable and has a plot is a joy. This is one such story. Of course, it is what it is...a short piece about a man being reunited with his One True...the same One True that stood him up on his graduation day, and then disappeared for nearly a decade. Nathan obviously has convinced himself that he's "over" Fitz...but we all know about that river in Egypt, don't we? Surprisingly, Fitz's explanation about why he ran makes him a respectable character, rather than just a chicken.

I don't think it's a spoiler to say the story has a happy ending (otherwise, it'd just be too depressing and emo to bother with). It's a nice little afternoon's worth of love, angst and passion that will leave you feeling warm and happy for the boys...and wanting to read more about them as they build a life together.

So, Ms. Okati, if you're reading this...a sequel would be nice. Maybe if they had to take in an orphan, or something? I'd also like to see the patients after a year or two of Fitz working on them (and Nathan).

5.0 out of 5 stars It takes practice 24 April 2013

Well this was my first read by this author. It was great! I really enjoyed the book. The concept wasn't something far fetched. I enjoyed the characters and how they interacted and still knew each other but knew there were changes. Great book, will be a reread.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pulls out all the stops 19 May 2013
By Becky C - Published on
Seeing Fitz with the patients was a pleasure. Fitz is described as being charming and he certainly pulls out all the stops here.

After seven years, can Nathan forgive Fitz? Once he understands why Fitz had to go, will he move on? Can the two of them come back together? One thing is for certain, if they want to be a couple again, they can't expect to just magically solve their issues. It most definitely takes practice.
