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.

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.



*****Patty’s Review*****

*****FIVE STARS*****
{ARC Generously Provided by Author}

I’m shaking as if he has me on the edge of a cliff. One single finger could push me over. I’d tumble down, and right now, there’s no way to know what awaits me at the bottom. Pain, love, heartache, elation—each is as likely as the last and I can’t willingly do this to myself. I can’t give myself over to a man who has the power to upend my life so easily.



HOTSHOT DOC is yet another FIVE STAR READ by the amazingly talented R.S. Grey! Over the past few years, I have become one of her die-hard fans. If you’ve never read anything by this author, I highly recommend that you give her a chance. My heart is brimming with love for Matt and Bailey’s story. For those of you who enjoy a good ”enemies-to-lovers” romance, this is one that you need to add to your TBRs ASAP! A story that has an engaging plot, swoon-worthy Hero, and a Heroine who steals your heart, HOTSHOT DOC just became one of my top favorite books by R.S. Grey!

You can’t help but fall for Bailey. She’s sweet, silly, and has such a gentle soul. She has been the sole guardian of her fourteen-year-old sister for several years and there isn’t anything she wouldn’t do to make sure that Josie is healthy and happy, including putting her social life on hold. Truth be told, no one has really caught her eye until a certain “McDreamy” like doctor started working at her hospital. Dr. Matt Russell is every woman’s fantasy, but he’s notorious for his hot temper and for making most of his physician assistants quit because none of them can handle his verbal abuse and high standards. Bailey ends up becoming his latest victim when the doctor she’s worked with for the past four years retires and recommends Bailey to Dr. Russell, who happens to have just scared away his latest physician assistant.

Matt and Bailey don’t get off to the greatest start in the beginning, but there’s an instant chemistry that’s hard to deny between them. No matter how terrific Bailey is at being his PA, it doesn’t seem to curb his rude behavior towards her and it’s driving her insane because she wants so badly for him to like her and to receive validation from Matt that she’s doing a kick-ass job. Once the truth behind his belligerent attitude is revealed things quickly heat up between Matt and Bailey.

Matt has many layers of sweetness buried underneath his cold exterior and the two quickly get swept up in a whirlwind romance. As with all stories, there’s something just around the corner waiting to burst the couples’ perfect bubble. Is their love strong enough to face the challenges ahead of them?

Here are my overall ratings:

Hero: 5
Heroine: 5
Plot: 5
Angst: 4
Steam: 4.5
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5

HOTSHOT DOC is currently available. I promise you, this is a book that’s not to be missed! Make sure you one-click.
