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.
THIS WAS EXACTLY WHAT I WANTED TO READ!
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.
He meets Melody Marco amidst the show’s chaos when she’s hired as his nurse, and he’s gobsmacked and adorably awkward from the moment she walks in the door. She’s just as dazed by him, and they both trip over themselves—and their words—trying to pretend they’re not attracted to each other. Soon, they settle into a rhythm of charming, playful and flirtatious interactions amid the crazy patients and general mayhem, all of which kept me laughing and smiling like a loon. Even Will and Melody’s internal dialogues are clever quips and deadpan sarcasm, and I don’t have time to wax poetic about the smart wordplay and constant ribbing by the memorable (and familiar) secondary characters. Dr. OB is brilliantly unpredictable with no shortage of witty exchanges and laugh out loud moments, but it is also a sigh-worthy, heartfelt romance that will melt your heart and leave you begging for your next hit from Max Monroe.

I started the audio of Dr. OB at the right time on a perfect day in the best possible week. This week has been a bloody SHOCKER!! Everything has gone wrong. Things practically exploded in my face, my boys' schedule was sending me to an early grave and PEOPLE were annoying me. I wish PEOPLE would stop annoying me. Anyways, at my breaking point, with a croak in my throat from holding back the tears, I started my adventure with Dr. Obscene.
The tears came, alright, but they were tears of mirth. I needed this obscene, crass and hilarious story.
It was the weirdest thing, with every bad thing that happened this week, for a little while, I was able to escape into the romantic world of obstetrics. I hear you scoff. Obstetrics??? Romantic??? Well, maybe not romantic but definitely sexy. Oh boy, does that sound bad? Ok, yes, I know that sounds bad and it is kind of bad, but it was also really good. It was all about what Dr OB could bring to the stirrups (wink, wink). Sorry, I couldn’t help myself, this story left my mind in the gutter.
Look, I can see you’re all squirming in your seats thinking about an Obstetrician in a sexy way. I guess, in some way, I can separate it from my reality. See, my Obstetrician/Gynaecologist wears a bow tie and there is NO WAY I would ever, Ever, EVER be thinking of this story when I go for my next ob/gyn visit. Poor male ob/gyn doctors, they need their own HEA too. They can’t help that they look at vaginas all day. We need to be more sympathetic. At least they “get” things better than the average joe and are a wee bit more sympathetic to what a girl suffers (hand to my forehead, woe is me).
I think the narrators do a fabulous job in this one. Yes, I still have a wee problem with blokes trying to do a female character, but, I could look past it because he does one hell of a sexy male character. Both narrators were easy to listen to and I had no problems understanding them or being able to tell when the characters changed. Top marks to the narrators.
I wouldn’t say this was an easy storyline to love. Unfortunately, our dear Dr Will has been around the hospital a time or two (wink, wink, nudge, nudge). He’s paying for his past indiscretions by having his reputation and dedication questioned. When he finally finds a woman who he wants to have a serious relationship with, she’s seeing him in a very obscene way in the worst possible light.
If you don’t take it too seriously and are the kind of person who believes a leopard can change his spots, Dr OB on audio might be perfect for you.
Warning: Listening to the audio of Dr. OB in public may cause extreme embarrassment. You may suffer uncontrollable snorts of laughter, body-shaking spasms of glee and face contortions from trying to hold back smirks and smiles. It is advised that a private, sound-proofed room is found to enjoy the full benefits of this audio.
