Release Blitz: Hotshot Doc by RS Grey

R.S. Grey's next romantic comedy, HOTSHOT DOC, is available now! Find out more about it below and pick up your copy today!


Dr. Russell has a bad reputation around our hospital. The scrub techs say he’s cold-blooded, the nurses say he’s too cocky for his own good, and the residents say he’s the best surgeon in the world—really, just a swell guy!—on the off chance he’s within earshot.
I try to avoid him and his temper at all costs. It’s just as easy to admire his sexy, grip-it-while-he’s-ravishing-you hair and chiseled jaw from a healthy distance, preferably from the other end of the hallway…half-hidden behind a plant.
Unfortunately, my plan crumbles when my trusty ol’ boss decides to swap his white coat for a Hawaiian shirt. His retirement leaves me with two terrible options: switch specialties and spend months retraining, or take an open position as Dr. Russell’s surgical assistant.
That means I have to stand near him in the OR for hours on end and anticipate his every need without letting his biting words and bad attitude intimidate me. Oh, and as if that’s not difficult enough, my silly crush on him—the one I’ve tried to stomp on until it disappears—might just be reciprocated.
It’s fine.
I’m fine.
I take my job seriously. There will be no smoldering bedroom eyes across the operating table, no angry almost-kisses in the storage closet. (Well, no more of those.)
What’s the phrase? An apple a day keeps the doctor away?
Maybe I should go for a whole damn bushel.

Review by Lisa Kane

Bailey Jennings struggles to keep all the balls in the air. She's her 14 year-old sister's guardian, trying to keep Josie on the right path while working gruelling hours as a surgical assistant at New England Medical Center. For the last few years she's assisted Dr. Lopez and loves her job. He's skilled, patient and appreciative of all she does.

Having a secure job helps because her paycheck never seems to stretch far enough with rent, food, credit card debt, clothes for Josie and every other thing that keeps coming along. But she knows someday, if she keeps scrimping and saving, she may be able to put a down payment on a place of their own.

In the six years since I've taken guardianship of her, I haven't been on many dates. I haven't been interested in guys in general. Romance has taken a back seat in my life-no, worse: romance has become those aluminum cans trailing by strings behind my car. 

But life is about to throw her a curve ball...again. Dr. Lopez is retiring and she may be out of a job. Together they touch base with the other surgeons on staff but it seems no one needs an assistant. No one but Dr. Matt Russell, surgeon extraordinaire and the most difficult surgeon on staff. He hasn't been able to keep a surgical assistant. He may be brilliant, but no one wants to work for him. He's demanding, arrogant and just an all around jerk.

Matt doesn't quite see it that way. He knows he's difficult but his whole life revolves around children with horrible, painful spinal conditions. He is all about medicine and his cases. He doesn't really see his coworkers or fellow surgeons as people with lives and personalities. His life is structured and all business.

So when Dr. Lopez introduces Bailey to him, he isn't Godsmacked or even a little impressed. He barely sees her at all. She is totally turned off by him, his reputation is spot on, this guy is an ass.

No one has ever talked to me like Bailey did last night, not a colleague, not another attending at the hospital, and definitely not a surgical assistant. 

But Dr. Russell is forced to give her a try in his O.R.

"Your first case is Monday morning. Ask Patricia for the information and learn the steps of a pedicle subtraction osteotomy like a child's life depends on it-because it does. I'm giving you one chance."

Bailey's first surgery doesn't go quite as expected.

This isn't happening. This is another dream. I've never been late. I'm not a late person. In all my years working with Dr. Lopez, this has never happened. I'm so totally screwed. 

But miracles of miracles, he doesn't fire her either.

"If you're planning on quitting, better go let him know now so he can arrange to have a resident assist him on Wednesday."

Bailey crosses paths with someone and that sets off a whole chain of events. Can you hear the dominoes as they fall?

"Bailey," he repeats testing it out before he nods as if coming to a conclusion. "You look like a Bailey."
My brows rise curiously. "Oh yeah? Why's that?"
"It's a sweet name." He shrugs. "Cute. Cheerful." 

Matt is about to find out that he isn't as immune to Bailey as he thinks, or even as much as he admits to himself.

Things heat up, body parts go bump in the night. (and day!) Wow, this is easy right? All the walls have come down and these two just might have a shot right? Right? Ok, maybe not so right. Matt might be brilliant, but boy he can be one stupid guy fumbling around trying to have a relationship.

If we speak, it's about the case at hand, though there are still subtle hints that let me know this distance is killing him as much as it's killing me. I see it every time our eyes meet. A storm. A longing. The words that die on his tongue. 

Oh man, they are just at two polar opposite worlds right now. They make a fantastic team in surgery, but things are just falling apart outside of it. Can his surgical skills mend their broken hearts?

"This is still so new. We could still crash and burn so easily," I point out as his hand moves down between my legs.
The side of his mouth hitches up in amusement. "Maybe. I've heard I'm pretty hard to tolerate. You'll probably get sick of me soon enough."
