Book Review: Hotshot Doc by R.S. Grey


Dr. Russell has a bad reputation around our hospital. The scrub techs say he’s cold-HotShotDocEbookCoverblooded, 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.

It’s fine.

I’m fine.

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.


*I received an advanced copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review*

The Queen of Romantic Comedy does it again!  This is the best romance book I’ve read this year! I’m always on the lookout for stories that take place in a hospital setting, so I was really excited to learn that Rachel was writing a book that was set in this environment. 

Bailey is a really likable character, she’s funny, smart and has no problem voicing her opinion on something, she reminded me a bit of Miranda Bailey from Greys. I also really liked her sister Josie, who is the epitome of what a little sister is. Matt is very intense but a big softy underneath I loved how we get to see him open up around Bailey, its slow at first (Rachel writes the absolute best slow romances) but its so satisfying. His character growth was great – and the chemistry between in and Bailey was electrifying, how they didn’t set the OR on fire I’ll never know! 

Another thing that I loved about this book was all the Grey’s Anatomy references – I’m such a huge fan of the show so it really made my day that Bailey and Josie were fans too. I really could sing this book’s praises all day long I loved it that damn much, for me had it everything that I look for in a romance story, humor, fantastic characters, zero side drama, sizzling romance, and one Hotshot Doc 😉
