Editorial Reviews

Review

"Naughty? Yes, but also rich in humor and character development and some fine insights into Medicine today." - Grady Harp, Amazon Top 500 Reviewer 


"pure, light-hearted romance...but what I loved and what lifted it above your normal...steamy romance story was the seriousness and importance of the backstory to the two characters... An excellent read" - Grant Leishman for Readers' Favorite

"hot and sexy" - Sheryl, Amazon reader

"Steamy romance that offers a good insight into the burnout within the medical community" --Marcia, Amazon reader

"another winner for Ms. Blake. The characters are well-defined, the plot is engaging, and the sex scenes between Lily and Wolf are extremely hot." -LJT, Amazon reader

 "The Burnout Cure is billed as a contemporary romance/medical romance. Yes, it's a love story. Yes,it includes smoking hot sex scenes. Yes, it has a happy ending. But it also has a serious message that author Jill Blake deftly interweaves with the plot and character development, in a way that enhances the story...a great feel-good read with a message that stays with you long after you finish the last page." -NancyR, Goodreads reader

"funny dialogue and steamy scenes" -BrandyRN, Amazon reader

From the Author

Readers always ask where I get my ideas.

With The Burnout Cure, I didn't have far to look. While Wolf, Lily, and the characters who inhabit their world are fictional, the issues of physician burnout, depression, and suicide are very real--as are the sobering statistics that Lily quotes about how many physicians are affected.

The first seeds of this story were planted back when I was a young doctor-in-training. As Lily, the heroine of The Burnout Cure, describes in the book, the hours and work conditions during internship and residency were brutal. I lucked out with a program that provided wonderful role models and great institutional support. Unlike many of my peers, I didn't have to race from one hospital room to another throughout the night, drawing blood and starting IV's--our main teaching hospital had in-house phlebotomists and a great nursing staff who were paid to do that.

But there were still entire months when I never saw the sun because I was pre-rounding on patients at 4:30 a.m., spending the day in the O.R., doing evening rounds on post-op patients in the SICU (surgical intensive care unit), and then signing out to the night team at 9 or 10 p.m.--when I wasn't on call myself.

Speaking of call, I lucked out there too. I was never on call more often than every third night, and my longest stretch of working straight through without sleep was forty-two hours. I had friends, though, who suffered through training programs like Nick's. They took call every other night, worked a hundred-plus hours each week, and lied to Joint Commission inspectors to keep their programs--and ultimately themselves--out of regulatory hot water for flouting the rules.

Fast forward ten years to another milestone event, when three excellent, successful, well-respected physicians in our community committed suicide within months of each other. Our local medical society held a dinner to honor their memory, and the keynote speaker talked about physician burnout.

I'd never heard about burnout prior to that night. But before long, the term seemed to be on everyone's lips. As Wolf notes in the opening chapter: 

"Whenever he opened a medical journal, or stepped into the doctors' lounge, or went to the ER to admit a patient, there was always someone talking about wellness, burnout, or both." 

Practically overnight, it seemed that physician burnout burgeoned to epidemic proportions, and even the popular press started quoting the grim statistics that those of us in the trenches lived with every day.

A few years ago, I came across a TEDMED talk by Pamela Wible, a family physician from Eugene, Oregon. She talks about "Why Doctors Kill Themselves"--and she doesn't mince words. She describes a broken system that dehumanizes aspiring physicians and perpetuates abuses in medical education and practice. 

Dr. Wible's passion about the topic got me thinking.

What if a woman who is smart, mouthy, and willing to challenge the establishment decides to turn her personal tragedy into a cautionary lesson for other physicians? What if the one man who can help her spread the message is an irreverent, unapologetic chauvinist who doesn't believe in burnout? And what if they strike sparks off each other, hot enough to burn up the sheets?

And so, The Burnout Cure was born.
