OMG. It's here. It's LIVE early. And I am hot off just finishing up Will and Melody's story and you know what? I fucking LOVED it. I loved is so hard. I had such HUGE expectations for this one and all those expectations were exceeded! Guys. SERIOUSLY.  SO. MANY. FEELS. Full review below, but the IMPORTANT things are:


Title: DR. OB.
Series: Standalone 
(St. Luke's Docuseries Book 1)
Author: Max Monroe
Release Date: 4/23/2017

From the New York Times & USA Today bestselling author of TAPPING THE BILLIONAIRE comes a new three book series of Romantic Comedy standalones.
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.
HOLY WHOA! I'm a complete bundle of mushy, melty goodness right now. That was amazing! Just incredible. Whew! ::releases deep, contented breath:: OK... First things first, a warning. 

This book is OTT in parts. JAW DROPPING, actually. I cringed while covering my eyes and died laughing. The hero's an OB/GYN and some of the things he encounters are whacko. Secondly, this is FICTION. MAKE BELIEVE! I know crazy things happen in real life DR / Patient settings but man, this gets a little OTT. So be warned. It's OTT, BUT utterly amazing. Every second was the ABSOLUTE BEST. I ate up the craziness like it was a piece of chocolate mousse cheesecake (my favorite)! It's HILARIOUS, laugh out loud funny to the point of tears. And the sweetness of Will with Melody ::leans back and groans in delight:: it made my heart feel so full of happiness. So expect crazy fun, seriously hot and sweet romance, because that is exactly what DR. OB is; hilariously sweet, sexy fun! 


So... the moment this book showed up on my Kindle, I started reading. I was ELATED. Max and Monroe are my most favorite duo. I consider them the BEST OF THE BEST when it comes to RomCom. The QUEENS. I'll read whatever they write, whenever they write it. To say I'm a teeny bit obsessive over the characters they create and worlds they build, would be an understatement. I feel like they write my perfect books. The kind of stories that offer me pure escapism and I want to read them all the time. 

DR. OB came at the perfect moment. It's funny because I was just telling someone that I wanted to read a series about Doctors. One, where the hero's saving lives and being all alpha. I mean.. What could be hotter than that, right? And then there was Max Monroe, a week later, with a surprise NEW series coming our way. I FREAKED out. Then, when I saw that it was about Will Cummings, Georgia's brother, I had another bookish moment. 


And truthfully, I had massive expectations for this story. And you know what? It BLEW THOSE EXPECTATIONS OUT OF THE WATER!

This novel's downright hysterical. I devoured it. Will is the head physician of St. Luke's Obstetrics. He's the star of a brand new Docuseries called The Doctor Is In. He's single, a bit of a player, but he has the biggest heart EVER. He's the ultimate gentleman. If you've read Max Monroe's Bad Boy Billionaires Series, you'll have met him there as Georgia Cummings brother. If not, don't even worry. This is a COMPLETE standalone. Nothing needs to be read before it. Will is a deliciously sweet character. He's real and honest and he made my heart feel full. He's the kind of man that you wish you could have in real life. Funny and charming, thoughtful and charismatic, and an amazing Doctor. He's doing this Docuseries that he's initially excited about. He feels like it's going to spice up his life while bringing notoriety to the hospital and his practice. But when the first episode airs, Will's life is tossed upside down. 

Melody Marco is back in New York City, moved in with her parents, and jobless. She's coming off a relationship where all she did was give give give and all her ex did was take take take. Melody's kind of lost, feels unsure of where to go with her life, until her mother Janet takes things into her own hands and gets her an interview at Will's practice (lol). Melody's spent the last several years as a Labor and Delivery nurse. 

Will and Melody have the FUNNIEST meet cute I have ever read in my life. LITERALLY. I thought I had read everything. That nothing could shock me. But OMFG. WRONG. WRONG. WRONGGGG! It was hysterical and awkward and I don't even have words for what I read. My stomach hurt from laughing. These two are something else and I was enthralled with them. I loved reading as they formed a friendship that had me swooning and then when it turned into the sweetest romance ever, I was owned. 

Truly, I loved every second of reading as they traversed the pitfalls of Will's new found fame, and as Melody tried to figure out what she really wanted out of her life. It was endearing to watch them together and it certainly made me hot and bothered when the steamy scenes came in to play. Melody and Will have the BEST chemistry and it burns up the pages of your kindle. 

Overall, this book was a everything. A slam dunk, a home run, a hat trick, a touchdown, a whatever. As you can tell, I LOVED it. I can't stop swooning over it. I want to tell everyone about it. It really was everything I wanted and so much more. I can't say enough good things about this novel and this duo of authors, and I cannot wait until we get the next standalone in this series. I'm addicted. Completely. Whole-heartedly. A top favorite for me.

Angie's Rating:

A secret duo of romance authors team up under the pseudonym Max Monroe to bring you a sexy, laugh-out-loud new series…& more. ;)

New writing partners and long time friends, Max and Monroe strive to live and write all the fun, sexy swoon so often missing from their Facebook newsfeed. Sarcastic by nature, their two writing souls feel like they’ve found their other half.

Stay tuned for the future—this is where the fun begins.
