BINGE READ ALERT, I REPEAT BINGE READ ALERT!!
Are you fed up with your reality problems?
Do you wish for a balm to your battered soul?
Do you seek escape in the form of paper and words?
If the answer is yes, then Hotshot Doc is perfect for you!
You don’t need to know much in order to dive in R.S. Grey’s latest rom-com. Only that there is a medical clinic. A pediatric spinal surgeon who is supposed to be the devil incarnate. A surgical assistant searching for a new boss. And a toe-curling, heartwarming and slow-burning romance laced with delicious tension and palpable chemistry.
Now let's talk about it, shall we?
Part 1, aka the sappy, you-can-hear-the-violins-playing-in-the-background part.
The past months have been a whirlwind workwise. I was (and still am) barely able to breathe, let alone read, so every time I returned home, I would put on my PJs, watch trashy TV shows and stay in the couch until I’d move to bed. Lather, rinse, repeat. I was so emotionally spent, tired to my very bones, that my brain refused to focus on anything. My soul ached for books to uplift me, to speak to me, to mend my wings that were in tatters, a product of anxiety and exhaustion. There were only a handful of authors who could startle me out of my stupor, and R.S. Grey is one of them. When Hotshot Doc hit my Kindle, however, it was met with trepidation. What if I was broken beyond repair? What if the hard slap of reality inflicted permanent damage to my love for reading? I should have known better than to question R.S. Grey’s healing abilities. Her words were like water to parched land. I inhaled them, I devoured them and I realized that after a very long time, I was content. And I can’t thank Rachel enough for that.
Part 2, aka the SOMEBODY CALL A DOCTOR, MATT GAVE ME HEART PALPITATIONS part.
The Queen of Rom-Coms strikes again, and it’s a lethal blow to the possibilities of ever finding someone who can be compared to her male characters. Dr. Matt Cooper is a soft teddy-bear hidden behind a cold, aloof fortress, but once you crack his walls, you’re irrevocably in love. Was he a jerk on numerous occasions? Sure. Was he unfair to Bailey? Yes. But the way he opened up, the way he fell head over heels that led to sweet gestures and SCORCHING encounters charred what was once my heart.
From the anticipation built for the first kiss to the explosion of glorious feelings when they were finally together, R.S. Grey, with her refined writing skills, crafted a romance that became one of my favorites. Bailey was a really endearing heroine, her devotion to her little sister was touching, and so was the way she crept in Matt’s cold heart. With the perfect blend of laughter, steam and all-encompassing feelings, she proved once more that rom-coms is her domain, and she rules it with an iron grip!
If you’re up for a romance reminding you of Grey’s Anatomy, with a surgeon that is the love child of McDreamy and McSteamy and a variety of fireworks that warm your insides, please don’t hesitate and grab a copy of Hotshot Doc!
