It’s just a docuseries about your career as an OB/GYN, they said.
It won’t interrupt your life during or after filming, they said.
It is a great opportunity for the hospital and your practice, they said.

Well, they—the television executives who seem intent on ruining my career and personal life with a fair number of creative liberties—lied.

Now I’m stuck dealing with the consequences of believing them.

Instead of being known as Dr. Will Cummings, Head of Obstetrics and Gynecology at St. Luke’s Hospital, I’m now being called Dr. Obscene.

What devotion I’d hoped to earn in respect, I’ve instead received in patients flashing me seductive smiles and flirtatious winks during their exams.

How’s a guy supposed to convince the most perfect woman he’s ever met that he’s not as much of an idiot in real life as he appears to be on camera?

With all of the show’s side effects taking root like parasites, it’s going to take a lot to persuade Melody Marco to be anything more than my new nurse.

But I can’t get her out of my head.

I want her.

Good thing I’ve never been one to back away from a challenge…

Get ready, Melody.

The doctor is in.

The comedic geniuses behind the talented author duo, Max Monroe, have kicked off another must-read romcom series with this book! Dr. OB is the first book in the St. Luke’s Docuseries, and it is as fiery, funny and fabulously well written as readers have come to expect from them. Brimming with hilarity, snappy banter, a heart-tugging romance and smoking hot passion, this story pulled me in from page one.

The plot was fresh, entertaining and totally believable. It’s a brilliant concept and the perfect platform to showcase Max Monroe’s sense of humor. While not overly angsty, there were still plenty of feels to be had here. Will’s frustration over his creatively-edited portrayal on the hospital-based reality show bled through the story, and I felt his desperation to distance himself from that image. Melody was a woman in transition. She’d just ended a long-term relationship, relocated back to New York, moved in with her parents and was trying to rediscover herself and her professional passion when she met Will.

Will was an irresistible hero. Adonis-sexy, heart-meltingly swoony and a filthy-mouthed dirty-talker, he was also charming, genuine and thoughtful. Melody was a sassy, smart and strong-willed heroine who may not have known exactly what she wanted, but she was determined to figure it out. Their love story was sweet, romantic and scorchingly sexy.

My heart swelled, my cheeks burned, and I smiled from cover-to-cover as I devoured this addictive romantic comedy. I laughed, lamented and loved right along with Will and Melody as they chased their happily-ever-after. This book was everything that I hoped it would be, and I can’t wait for more! Five smooches from me for Max Monroe’s Dr. OB!
