Series: “A St. Luke’s Docuseries Novel”
5 Obscene CROWNS
Max Monroe has perfected the romantic comedy, hitting the right blend of hilarity and romance. Every single novel they produce has me rolling in laughter and swooning over the heroes and heroines who have become some of my favorites.
With Dr. OB, Max Monroe has taken us on a new journey to St. Luke’s hospital, and this first book in the series is outstanding, mainly because of the characters. Will is a hero with charm. He is laid back, rolling with the punches and crazy antics of his patients. He is constantly concerned about his patients and their care. What readers are going to love most about him is that Will seems like a man readers could meet on the street. He listens to Melody, wants to make her happy, and is so incredibly thoughtful. I know I am absolutely in love with him. Readers are also going to adore Melody as much as they do Will. When we meet her, she is starting over, and I love the fortitude it took to do so. Melody is not one to live in an unsatisfactory state, and readers will love that she looks for fulfillment outside of her relationship with others. This is a woman who learns from her mistakes, protects herself when needed, and fights for what she wants.
These two together are fantastic, and, although in true Max Monroe fashion, there are some dirty times and dirty talk, these two really shine when they are just simply together. Their conversations and spending time together only serves to highlight the physical chemistry that sizzles and crackles between them.
One of the aspects of a Max Monroe novel that I love is the cast of characters. These ladies create phenomenal secondary characters who become more than just tools to develop our heroine and hero or progress the plot. These characters provide humor and bring life to the story, and each one makes me so excited for more in the this series. What really was exciting about this book is all the cameos. I was so excited to see how they tied the two series together (If you haven’t read the first series, do not fret. You in no way need to read them. It will not change you love or understanding of Dr. OB). For those of you who have read the previous series, you are going to love everything about it.
This story is entertaining from page one. The humor lightens up the serious moments. The progression of Mel and Will’s relationship is authentic and develops naturally. The passion that they have for each other and their profession is evident, and readers will become enamored with their romance. Max Monroe does a wonderful job getting reader buy in so that when the inevitable conflict occurs, readers’ hearts will break for them, as they watch the explosion and fall out. The ending, though, made it all okay by the end, and I was smiling like a loon while witnessing their HEA.
Max Monroe continues to be romantic comedy geniuses and automatic one-click authors for me. I absolutely love everything they write, and I know their light and fun romances will provide the perfect escape. Seriously, their books are like watching your favorite sitcom, and I cannot wait for the next episode!
ARC received in exchange for an honest review.
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.

“Oh, come on. If I were really trying to torture you, I wouldn’t have protected you from the fact that Savannah has been in there trying to convince Georgie that, and I quote, it’d be the most natural thing in the world for you to be her obstetrician.”
Internally, I cringed. Externally, I cringed. In fact, it felt like Kline had just jabbed me in the back of the throat with his finger, and my gag reflex was doing nothing more than reacting accordingly—hacking cough, choking sensation, slight nausea.
I loved my career as a physician in obstetrics, but I’d sign up to flip burgers at the nearest fast-food joint if it meant avoiding doing vaginal exams on my sister. The mere thought was worse than that disgusting horror flick called The Human Centipede.
Seriously, if you’ve never seen that movie, don’t fucking see that movie.
That flick is more traumatic than the blue waffle and that “Two Girls One Cup” site combined.
Jesus. Don’t Google those either.
