R.S. Grey’s next standalone rom-com, Doctor Dearest is out now! Check it out and order yours today!
Dr. Easton is part man, part myth.
He’s a formidable surgeon. Highly respected in his field.
He also happens to be an ex-collegiate quarterback with a classically handsome face.
Are you catching on yet?
A walking Ralph Lauren ad.
He’s also so off limits he should come with a warning label: This way lies heartache.
Not only is he an attending at the hospital where I’m training, he’s also my brother’s best friend. If you’ve lost count, that’s two reasons why I plan on putting this ridiculous crush behind me. Besides, it’s definitely not mutual.
Dr. Easton has never once paid me special attention. No tempting smirks. Not even one subtle innuendo. To him, I’m just another resident—all but invisible.
For the last five years, I’ve mentored Natalie in the OR, stayed in line, and kept my hands to myself, but it’s been agonizing.
Natalie is trouble in scrubs. A walking temptation I’ve been forced to ignore.
For so long, I’ve wanted her in silence. By the time fate finally gets around to throwing me a bone, my patience has run out.
Natalie’s brother is leaving town, and he wants me to watch over her while he’s gone.
He has no idea how I feel about her.
Neither does she.
But she will.
Haven’t you heard good things come to those who wait, Natalie?
Well…I’ve done my waiting.
It’s always entertaining for me to read and witness a hero and heroine have no clue that what they feel for the other person is mutual. And R.S. Grey has a knack for making these exact situations quirky, comical, and endearing in all the best ways.
In her newest release, Dearest Doctor, Grey demonstrates just how oblivious someone can be, especially when she has very little experience with personal relationships and a whole lot of emotions trapped inside her for a guy who she thinks won’t give her the time of day, at least if it’s not a topic in the field of medicine.
But Connor Easton is about to show Natalie Martin exactly how he feels about her, because now that she’s no longer his mentee and her brother, his best friend, has given him the green light to look out for her and stay with her while his place is renovated, he’s about to finally give into his desire and his need for the woman he wants; let’s hope she can see that his feelings for her are way more than plutonic or professional.
Grey does a great job illustrating just how married to her job Natalie is, but I do have to say that it didn’t make her very personable at the beginning of the story, which meant that I had to warm up to her as the story went on, when I usually click with both the hero and heroine from the start, and I would say that the biggest obstacle that Natalie and Connor have to overcome is her inability to read personal situations and clearly see what Connor wanted from her when he finally gave into his feelings for her and went all in.
I’m always excited to dive into a R.S. Grey romcom. I love the humor that she infuses into her story lines, and the uniqueness of the characters she creates. There hasn’t been a book that I haven’t found myself laughing out loud as I read it, and I’m looking forward to more of her words.
