Doctor Dearest by R.S. Grey (arc)

I love this story and, as usual when reading anything by R.S. Grey, I had a hard time letting it go once I started reading! This book revolves around doctors (two in particular of course, it IS a romance after all) and we get to experience tropes like forced proximity, brother’s best friend/best friend’s sister and a slight age gap. Three very good tropes when well done and R.S. Grey knows how to spin them into something GOOD.

As a whole I loved both the cast of characters and their dynamics, even though the protagonists were a bit off sometimes, but luckily it mostly read like human flaws and didn’t detract from the story.

I was eagerly anticipating some heartwarming moments when I realized that the protagonists work with children as their main patients and, to my delight, there were a chapter or two where I nearly melted when a certain little toddler entered the scene. I was hoping that they would adopt her, but alas so much cuteness probably WOULD have melted me into a puddle for real. 

For the rom com loving reader, you can’t go wrong with an R.S. Grey book and Doctor Dearest is a great book to start with!



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?
He’s horrible.
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.
