R.S. Grey’s next romantic comedy, HOTSHOT DOC, is available now! Find out more about it below and pick up your copy today!
Dr. Russell has a bad reputation around our hospital. The scrub techs say he’s cold-blooded, the nurses say he’s too cocky for his own good, and the residents say he’s the best surgeon in the world—really, just a swell guy!—on the off chance he’s within earshot.
I try to avoid him and his temper at all costs. It’s just as easy to admire his sexy, grip-it-while-he’s-ravishing-you hair and chiseled jaw from a healthy distance, preferably from the other end of the hallway…half-hidden behind a plant.
Unfortunately, my plan crumbles when my trusty ol’ boss decides to swap his white coat for a Hawaiian shirt. His retirement leaves me with two terrible options: switch specialties and spend months retraining, or take an open position as Dr. Russell’s surgical assistant.
That means I have to stand near him in the OR for hours on end and anticipate his every need without letting his biting words and bad attitude intimidate me. Oh, and as if that’s not difficult enough, my silly crush on him—the one I’ve tried to stomp on until it disappears—might just be reciprocated.
I take my job seriously. There will be no smoldering bedroom eyes across the operating table, no angry almost-kisses in the storage closet. (Well, no more of those.)
What’s the phrase? An apple a day keeps the doctor away?
Maybe I should go for a whole damn bushel.
Let me start by saying something most people (that know me) already know, enemies to lovers stories are not my cup of tea. Of course, there’s an exception or two but overall it is my least favorite trope in this trope-filled universe. I do my best to escape this particular trope but some always end up sneaking their way into my kindle… just like Hotshot Doc. I can’t say no to R.S. Grey!
I finished reading Hotshot Doc (AKA one of the best enemies to lovers books I’ve read this year) in the freaking blink of an eye. I enjoyed it so much it felt like I finished reading it in a second but it was actually a couple of hours of pure bliss and perfection.
The first half of the story had me hooked on the “hate” relationship between the heroine and hero. I’m not a fan of characters disliking each other just because but that fortunately didn’t happen in this book. I actually felt like at least one of the parties had a reason to dislike the other while the other was just being a bitter pain in everyone’s behind. Their bickering gripped me from the very first interaction they had, I was able to feel their discomfort when they were around each other yet at the same time I was able to feel the attraction they didn’t even know was there.
The second half of the story had me dying from the unbelievable amount of sexual tension between the main characters. It made my stomach feel like it was on a tilt-a-whirl and my heart nearly beat out of my chest. I felt I was reading a completely different book, suddenly I was reading an incredibly romantic, funny and adorable lighthearted friends to lovers story featuring two lovable main characters and a hilarious fourteen-year-old.
Hotshot Doc was everything I could have asked for in an enemies to friends to lovers story and more! Of course, I expected for it to be a great read since R.S. Grey wrote it but it honestly blew me away. It is definitely one of her best books to date and y’all need to give it a read as soon as possible.
