About HOTSHOT DOC
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.

“My insides are made of ooey-gooey mush.” (Bailey Jennings) Well, that’s certainly me before, during and after reading the Hotshot Doc by R.S. Grey.
If you’ve been with me and my reading journey for quite some time, you must know that I truly enjoy and love R.S. Grey and her books. (I need to collect her books in physical format soon. I must save up first. Haha!) I’ve been with her since what, Scoring Wilder days? and ever since then have read her releases. Gobbled them up. There might have been some hits and misses along the way but I couldn’t deny the fact that R.S. Grey is one of my go-to and trusted authors. Especially, someone who takes the romantic-comedy genre seriously. She knows me and her readers so well. She knows the perfect formula to get the “kilig” out of us.
…and she got me, once again, with Hotshot Doc.
Surgeon. Surgical Assistant. Hospital. Enemies-Lovers. You got to give it to this author for really exploring (and even combining) a lot of fun and exciting tropes out there. Mind you, she really gives justice to every single bit of it. Hotshot Doc was a combo of electrifying friction between the main characters, Bailey and Matt, and that freakin’ slow buuuuurn. The build up of their relationship was an interesting read, considering they still have to work through their work relationship before even progressing to that other type of relationship. Their personalities couldn’t be more different than what was portrayed and resulted with me being eager to know how their dynamics as workmates and as ahem lovers will progress.
The character development in this book, I live for it. R.S. Grey really took her time in fleshing their characters out, just like deliciously prolonging our agony for them to be together. Understandable, because I know she just wants to showcase how they really deserve each other despite their differences. Especially with Matt’s character, she did a great job in hiding and revealing what’s underneath and inside of him.
Another thing that I live for, the medical bits of information and scenes peppered into it. Staying true to her characters’ profession, Grey brought her readers inside the operation room. It was believable, for me, and I really fed off of those intense scenes. I know it could be a lot more intense in real life but surely that was some good stuff.
Hotshot Doc’s got a lot to offer on the table – fascinating characters, impressive plot and character developments, slow burn (our favorite is here), funny antics, a prime romantic comedy novel and more.
Just love an R.S. Grey type of romantic-comedy. You know she’s so great doing that.
