    3.5 stars overall - definitely a 4 for the last of the three stories!! I've got to be honest, story 1 was average for me, story 2 was worse but then the third story had this scrumptious little scene at a hotel as she's pressed hard against a window, high above the city... Fuck me! Lovely little half an hour read! This writer has great potential my advice would be to get away from shorts and write a much more erotic, deep, hot, passionate read – go for it! I think you can blow us all away! Arc kind 3.5 stars overall - definitely a 4 for the last of the three stories!!

I didn’t like Lauren (heroine in the first story), so perhaps that also set me off a bit. She was shallow and rude to Court, who is just a really nice guy who found her attractive for some reason. Just because you are attracted to someone and you think they aren’t into you, gives you know right to treat them badly. On that point alone, I would have ditched her. Then the second story was the weirdest intro to a ménage I have ever read…”because you cheated on me and I never used my free pass…well now I am…” Ummmm, weird. But the three of them seemed to like it and the end was left very open. The third story was the best in the whole book. I would have started off the book with this one to draw the reader in. Nikki is a modest woman who is learning to become her real self. At 26, she is starting to present herself more at work and deciding who and what she really wants to be in life. I loved her and Hunter together. They were sizzling! Enjoy.

    Nothing too deep. If you would like a book with a few short stories that involve relationships mainly based on sex then this is a good one for you. Definitely hot at times.

    ** The Intern ** Lauren’s love life is lacking and in the small town where she has her practice the pickings are slim. When Courtney shows up to intern, she expected to find a young female med student... instead she found ‘Court’ a young-hot and very male, med student. I was not a big fan of this story. Lauren was far too immature for her age and the way she acted. Far too many games and far too bitchy of a character. I focused so much on disliking her that I could barely take in anything else abo ** The Intern ** Lauren’s love life is lacking and in the small town where she has her practice the pickings are slim.

Lauren was far too immature for her age and the way she acted. Far too many games and far too bitchy of a character. I focused so much on disliking her that I could barely take in anything else about the story. **My Doctor, My Husband, and Me.** Valerie finds herself very attracted to her surgeon and what better way to act on that attraction then to see if her husband would be willing to let her live out her fantasy. When Valarie and her husband allow the sexy doctor to join them in the bedroom a simple arrangement begins and looks like this threesome might just have some staying power. This was a steamy little read. Although the lines are clearly blurred, it appears that a third person added to this relationship isn’t going to ruin her marriage. I enjoyed this one but part of me wished that the two men would have stepped up their game and experimented a bit with each other. **Seize the Doctor** Nikki gets the shock of her life when the hot guy from the club shows up while her feet are up in stirrups. Yep the sexy man is her gyno. But Nikki isn’t about to let him play doctor just yet. When she can’t seem to stop thinking about him, she gives in and decides to take a chance. And although he never got to examine her as a patient... maybe he’ll be able to give her the appointment of her life as her lover. These were okay stories. With a theme like this, I wanted something a bit more taboo. I also had struggled with the wording used. I get that our bits are called vagina and penis... but that is not sexy. There are times when you can use those words and they work – but when you are trying to work up a steamy scene, saying things like he put his penis into her vagina is like a cold shower. As a whole this three-part short is roughly a 2.5 overall.

      In The Doctor is In anthology you find three novellas with doctors as one of the main characters. They are all erotica novellas, in which the female character find or rediscover her sensual side. These tales present the females journey and not necessarily a HEA type of romance. Yes, they are happily ever after at the end of the book, but not because they have found their own true love, but because they have learned how to love themselves above all. 2 stars novella The first story is The Intern   In The Doctor is In anthology you find three novellas with doctors as one of the main characters.

Yes, they are happily ever after at the end of the book, but not because they have found their own true love, but because they have learned how to love themselves above all. 2 stars novella The first story is The Intern, which is my least favorite of the three. I had a hard time connecting with the heroine, and I guess I'm all about characters. Even though I didn't like the heroine much, I've enjoy the concept of her journey of self-discovery. 4 stars novella The second story, My doctor, my husband and me, is my favorite of three. Even though the plot doesn't seem very realistic for me, I've enjoyed their encounter and the idea behind it all. There are some pretty hot scenes at this one. 3 stars novella The third story, Seize The Doctor, is a fun tale with an amazing hot scene at a doctor's office!   You MAY read this book because you enjoy anthologies; you SHOULD read this book because you are looking for some erotic read; but you MUST read this book to have some fun time "playing doctor"! "We only get one life to live, and we have to seize opportunities when they come along. I am living my dreams with courage, stepping to a beat that is mine alone, and truly living my life to the fullest with no regrets, I realize, as I drift off to sleep in the tropical sunshine."  This review was originally posted on More Books Than Livros

The first, The Intern, is the story of an older woman, having just gone through a painful divorce, and a the young male intern who re-awakens in her desire and her own confidence in her sexuality. The second, My Doctor, My Husband, and Me is the story of Valerie. A patient whose fantasies about her handsome doctor come to life with permission and participation of her loving husband. The third, Seize the Doctor, is the story of Nikki, a young woman who after being cheated on by her boyfriend meets the her new man at a bar. Leary at first, still reeling from her breakup and some bad advice by her friends, Nikki is not sure she is ready to commit to her new Doctor lover. Review - These three tales are well written romance/erotica with the central theme of sex and love with a doctor. What Allure does well here is though they are all tied to a central theme, each story is very different. The first is a tale of redemption and pain. A hurt and betrayed older woman whose only outlet in life is her work. She is re-awaken by the desire of a younger man and in doing so, learns to see herself anew. The second one is just fun. Sexual experimentation between a threesome that come to care for one another as much as desire each other. The third is about trust and love after a break-up. Allure makes each of these situations plausible and doesnt hold back at all on the heat. Though in the first story it took a long time to get to that part. Once there, she explored it with wild abandon. A good soft erotic treat for those who appreciate romance with their erotica.

The Intern ~ I was into this one until Lauren turns into a bitch. That was it for me. Completely killed the steamy build up. My Doctor, My Husband, and Me ~ This seemed to be missing something. Who hasn’t had a sexy Dr. at some point in their life? But I just had a hard time connecting the Dr. and the patient together in a sexy way. At all. So the beginning lacked a lot. After they created the ménage à trois it got hot though. Very hot. Seize the Doctor ~ A bit too hipsterish for me. I did appreciate Nikki stepping outside her comfort zone and getting her man, but it was all kinda meh otherwise.

So if that’s what you’re in the mood for it’s a great read. If you’re looking for a book like War and Peace or Fried Green Tomatoes – look elsewhere. That said, the common thread of the three stories is ‘medical professionals’ – although the AMA might have something to say about their fairly unprofessional behaviors. But this is fantasy sex, not real life! So if you ever wanted to play doctor with the real thing, these stories may be for you. The first story, The Intern, stars a female doctor who’s been deeply injured by divorce. When the hot young intern comes on to her it soothes her battered self-esteem and rejuvenates her interest in sex – at least sex with him… This was not my favorite story, it felt more like therapy than romance. Got ménage fantasies? My Doctor, My Husband and Me is your story. It’s MFM, the guys aren’t in to each other. It’s heroine Valerie is who is at the center of their fun. Definitely steamy and there’s a slight ‘maybe’ on this not being just a one-time fling. Again, the heroine is older – no teenage ingénues here. In Seize the Doctor, heroine Nikki is in for her yearly gyn exam and finds the new doctor is the guy she met at a bar earlier. Personally? Pelvic exams are not my finest hour. The thought of dealing with sexual vibes at that time? Just EWWWW! But that’s me. The author made the fantasy work and some of the banter is very cute. Overall? The shortness of the stories and the emphasis on the sexual interludes limits character building and plot development. Still it’s a good, light, read-once.

Connect with Kate Allure: Website | Facebook | Goodreads Excerpt: Excerpt from Playing Doctor – “Seize the Doctor” At the door to her apartment building, they lingered and talked more while holding hands and looking into each other’s eyes. Hunter gently caressed her hand, making small swirling circles with his thumb on the soft pad of her palm. Nikki seemed as aroused as he was, her eyes dilated and her breath coming in short little pants. He very much wanted to kiss her and hoped she would let him. Nikki swayed toward him, and his arm came around to support the small of her back, gently pulling her against his body. “May I kiss you good night?” he asked in a low, husky voice. “Mmm, yes,” she replied, melting into him and tilting her face upward. His heart pounding, Hunter slowly lowered his mouth to meet hers, just the gentlest sweeping touch on her lips. His breath caught in his throat as he stood wanting and needing more. Deepening the kiss, Hunter crushed her tightly to him and stroked her lips with his tongue. He was burning with desire and wondered for perhaps the hundredth time this evening if she was wearing those so-sexy underthings. Oh, how he would love to see them on her, to slowly peel them off her body and explore her with his tongue. Thinking that he was getting dangerously carried away, he started to pull back, but then Nikki parted her lips and welcomed his kiss into her mouth. Hunter pulled her even more tightly to him. He could taste Nikki now, the subtle flavor of her mixed with the tangy beer they had consumed with dinner. The press of her breasts to his chest, her peaked nipples pressing into him, sent a shooting thrill throughout his body. His hand ached to reach up and caress her there. Before he got carried away, Hunter started to release her, but Nikki reached up and put her arms around his neck, pulling him back to her and deepening the kiss. It felt so good, so hot. Hunter reveled in the sensations and the awareness that this gorgeous woman wanted him as much as he wanted her. His bulging erection pressed into her belly, and he could barely stop himself from rubbing it against her. Instead, he ended the kiss and stepped firmly away, feeling unstable, as if he might lose control and yank her back, and then nothing would be able to stop him from finishing what they were starting. He needed to get away quickly. He didn’t want to ruin things now. “This was a terrific evening. Thank you,” Hunter said, turning away quickly, worried that Nikki might try to restart the kiss. Very much wanting her to do just that. “I enjoyed it too. Bye,” Nikki responded, still leaning toward him. “Thank you again. I’ll call you soon,” he said as he resolutely walked away. Hunter felt young and carefree…

I received this book as an ARC from Netgalley for my honest review. In my opinion this book has something for every erotica romance novel lover. Although at times I missed my happy endings at the end of one of the stories I still felt like it was a great read. I loved the first two stories and while the third one was good as well it did not have the scorching hot flames that the first two stories had. I felt as though the first story brought you into the appeal of the older woman, the second brought you the more the merrier and the third brought you a proper Miss who wants to walk on the wild side. The Intern= Dr. Lauren Marks's needs all the help she can get to run her medical practice after her husband leaves her high and dry. Courtney needs a summer internship to get the experience he needs to help him decide just what kind of doctor he wants to be. Although they attempt to fight the attraction they realize it is a lost cause. Starting a romance that may have been unexpected but exactly what the doctor ordered! My Doctor, My Husband, and Me= This title tells you exactly what to expect. Valerie has the hots for her Doctor and she thinks he may feel something as well. So what does a mature woman who knows exactly what she wants do? She makes an offer that neither her husband or her doctor can refuse. Whoever said 3's a crowd was crazy because Valerie was having the time of her life. Seize the Doctor= Nikki is ready to step into a new chapter in her life. After meeting a cute guy in the club that she felt could be the one, she completely get's turned off by his loser friends. She cant help but be upset that he is involved in their childish games. Thinking she would never see him again, she is completely taken by surprise when the door to her exam room opens up and the Cutie from the club walks in! All three stories were great. Good job Kate Allure, I would definitely recommend this book. It has enough heat to keep you warm on these cold winter nights!

    In the Playing Doctor Anthology you will find 3 erotic novellas where the central theme is 'falling' for a doctor. Be it the intern who falls for his boss, the married patient who's allowed to explore her fantasy of a threesome with her doctor or the heartbroken woman who although she enjoys her Doctor lover still has issues with committing to him.

Be it the intern who falls for his boss, the married patient who's allowed to explore her fantasy of a threesome with her doctor or the heartbroken woman who although she enjoys her Doctor lover still has issues with committing to him. The Intern is about an older, recently divorced woman who decides to explore her sensuality when she finds herself attracted to her new office intern. I admit that this was my least favorite of the stories simply because I could not connect with Lauren. It was obvious that these two had chemistry but their connection was lacking, something that it's a must for me even in an erotic read such as this one. My Doctor, My Husband, and Me was a fun read with interesting characters. Valerie partakes in her fantasy of a threesome. I enjoyed the camaraderie between the three participants and the heat they brought to the page. I think I liked it better than the first one because the characters' interactions never felt forced. This convinced me that they had some sort of connection which ultimately helped to further my enjoyment of the story. But my favorite story had to be Seize the Doctor. Nikki recently broke up with her boyfriend and is weary of any man getting close. But when she meets her sexy Doctor at a bar, she can't help but feel the sparks between them. Although a short read, I think this story had the right mix of elements. There was a bit of emotions, the abundance of heat and plenty of connection between the characters. The anthology works well as a whole. Each story had their pros and cons but they were enjoyable nonetheless. All in all, a worthwhile collection of steamy reads! *I received a copy of this title in exchange of my honest opinion.

I found overall, my favorite out of the stories was the third story in the bunch- Seize the Doctor- It is about Nikki, who is coming out of a bad relationship where she was treated terribly by her ex-boyfriend. She ends up at a bar and she meets a great guy. There was some minor tiff at the club so she leaves. She ends up meeting him another time when she goes in for a GYN exam and she cant leave this time-since the guy-Hunter, is her new GYN DR giving her the exam. Loved this story- It has the romance and the sex all combined into one. The other stories ( The Intern & My Doctor, My Husband & Me) didn’t have much of the romance element which is why I didn’t enjoy them as much. I do recommend this book because it will get your engines revving. It is food for thought- Awesome read for when you are in bed or when you are alone and need something to read (wink) My rating: 4.3 stars ****

    This last story was my favorite and had the steamiest scences. With that said this was more your average love story with added sex scenes yet nothing to kinky.

The last and my favorite has more heat. I can almost see these stories as part of a harlequin novel. I feel this will appeal to a reader who enjoys mild love stories with very little kink.

    Honestly not much to say for this one. The first story that I read was the Intern and I just couldn't get past how immature the main characters were. And one of them was supposedly the older woman and yet the childhood games were just annoying! And it only went downhill from there. Honestly not much to say for this one.

One woman doctor hooks up with her much younger employee while he is interning at her office for the summer. The second woman and her husband hook up with her doctor after she has had some foot surgery. The third woman meets a doctor at a bar and he turns out to be working at her gynocologist's office and the newest doctor. All 3 stories are qucik reads.

    This book was just ok. The first story was ok. The second story was eh. And the third story was good. I enjoyed the last one cause it was the only one that actually had a plot. It actually had a storyline and an ending.

    Doctor Doctor This three book series was a good read. Each story was believable and interesting. I liked them all. I feel that the author was rushing to tell each story that is why I gave it three stars. The stories themselves was entertaining each in their one way.

Good thing she wore her sexiest lingerie. ------------------- My Thoughts: AUTHOR DEBUT -- 3 novella anthology, approximately 60 - 100 pages each. THE INTERN - Approximately 100 pages. Lauren is a mid-thirties, divorced general practitioner. Her ex-husband left her with the practice and all the bills. She gratefully allowed a buy-in partnership to alleviate some of the financial stress & now is taking on an intern as a favor to an old college friend. Only she doesn't realize that she's a he & he's smokin' hot! But she's way too old for a young Adonis like him, isn't she? Courtney "Court" applies for a summer internship to determine if this is truly the path he wants to follow before he enrolls into med school. He's attracted to his new boss in ways that he'd never imagined, but what chance does a kid have with an experienced woman? A fun, quick story with humorous moments. The cast of characters were unique and enjoyable. Dialogue and interaction was great. The plot was fairly simple as many novella with not a lot of dynamics, but it flowed well nonetheless. The conflict gets thrown out and the results are fairly hot (but a little clinical). There was no predictability. The ending read like it was "wrapped up", I was left feeling a bit confused and short-changed. Not your typical conclusion. Score: 3.6, Stars: 4 ----- ----- ----- MY DOCTOR, MY HUSBAND AND ME - Approximately 65 pages. Valerie needs surgery on her foot to correct an old injury that did not heal properly and has been bothering her. She been married to Elliott for eighteen years and they have two teen children together. The marriage has not been without it's faults, but they are happy. But now that she's seen her doctor, she's fantasizing of more. Luka is the specialist that will perform her surgery. He's handsome with a swoon-worthy bedside manner and hot, silky Eastern European accent. He's attracted to her, but she's his patient. Her wedding band hasn't gone unnoticed either. A proposal is made at her final appointment... an erotic proposal, a proposal she can only hope Elliott will go along with. Lead female and her husband are in their early to mid-forties, the doctor about mid-thirties so they are a little older than typical characters. Characters are good, dialogue and interaction believable. The plot is thin, but flows smoothly. The sexual descriptions are sort of blunt and clinical; it does not come off as hot or erotic. There's not a lot of conflict, no predictability. Again, the ending is written as if it's a wrap, but you are left feeling cheated... Score: 3.4, Stars: 3 ----- ----- ----- SEIZE THE DOCTOR- Approximately 75 pages. Earlier in the week, Nikki broke up with her boyfriend of a year after he'd cheated on her. Now her friends convince her to go out to the club with them to forget the jerk. Hunter's celebrating with his friend when he meets Nikki. After spending over an hour getting to know one another, her friends see his friends playing a numbers game (collecting girls' phone numbers) and call the night off, dismissing the man-whore douches and their ridiculous "I'm a doctor." lines. Little did they realize... Lead characters are great, seconds are good. Humorous and fun dialogue. The sex scene(s) is/are a bit funny with the over-exuberant commentary and jerking pole terminology, but at least it's less clinical than the previous novellas were. Enjoyable, light plot with an easy flow. There was a mild conflict that was quickly resolved. Virtually no predictability. The conclusion was the most solid and satisfying of the three novellas. I enjoyed this one most.

The first Reviewed for Confessions From Romaholics ARC provided by Sourcebooks Casablanca in exchange for a honest review via Netgalley Playing Doctor is the first in the anthology series Meeting Men from Kate Allure which all detail sexual encounters with men . This anthology revolves around doctors and not just a drawn out scene. There is a plot and storyline with these stories and individually they could be about novella length if you wanted to pick and chose to read a particular story or two. The first of the stories is The Intern which plays on the cougar theme that seems to be popular these days. Our heroine can’t seem to get the new intern at her practice out of her head and starting to get jealous. She got the mentality that she an older woman, he wouldn’t be interested in her for goodness sake and she just got out of a marriage. However the intern feels the same way and this explores the summer of the intern working at her practice and Lauren regaining her life as a single woman. Lauren thought seemed at times the less mature person in the relationship as her thoughts almost seemed of a younger woman they way she acted when she was jealous. It a fun summer romance with a surprise ending. The second story is reawakening for all involved. In My Doctor, My Husband Valerie wants the spice back in her marriage and approaches her doctor to help. She attractive to him and wants to fulfil a fantasy she had when she was younger . Her husband and her were more adventurous when they were younger she wants to recapture that and get the good doctor out of the system. This story is hottest out of the collection heat wise. The final story Seize the Doctor fit more the mould of what the anthology hinted at with the title Playing Doctor and this one also offered a glimpse of what seemed potentially a HEA forever. Nikki isn’t looking for love, she just got out of her relationship with unfaithful boyfriend and is looking just for fun. A chance encounter with a hot guy at a club leaves her disappointed as the guy isn’t up front what his real motive for chatting her up. Nikki leaves the encounter at a lost chance and everything is fine. Until fate intervenes and the hot guy is her new doctor and he was about do her yearly exam. Thrown in some hot new lingerie and you got an embarrassed Nikki and makes of a fun story. The hot doctor gets his second chance and he decides to take the chance and live out some fantasies. This was probably my favourite out of the collection, the stories worked together to fit he general brief of playing with the doctor. However if you want to go specific meaning, then I would choose Seize the Doctor. These aren’t full out erotica so if you are expecting a steam fest with the scenes, chose the second story My Doctor, My Husband as that the closest you are going to get to full steam. It is a fun anthology and a change from stories that more heavy on the erotic sense. 3 couples For more of my reviews, visit Confessions From Romaholics.And drop by the blog's Facebook page

    This is a book with three short novellas in it. The first book has a doctor in a small town having a summer affair with her cute intern – who’s significantly younger than she is. The doctor, Lauren, is lonely. She was married for 10 years and her husband was a doctor who shared her practice. She knew their marriage wasn’t perfect but she didn’t think it was that bad. She found out differently when she came home one day and he had cleared out and left her a note. Wow. What an ass. It’s been a year This is a book with three short novellas in it. The first book has a doctor in a small town having a summer affair with her cute intern – who’s significantly younger than she is. The doctor, Lauren, is lonely. She was married for 10 years and her husband was a doctor who shared her practice. She knew their marriage wasn’t perfect but she didn’t think it was that bad. She found out differently when she came home one day and he had cleared out and left her a note. Wow. What an ass. It’s been a year, I think, since he’s left and Lauren misses having a sexual closeness with another human being. She loves her town and her job but she needs a man. When Court turns up as her intern Lauren tries to keep her thoughts pure but she can’t seem to keep her thoughts, eyes and eventually her hands off of him. The summer ends up being filled with fun and frolicking until Court has to leave to go back to school. Some of the scenes were pretty sexy and it was fun. The second story has a woman who has been married for 20 years fantasizing about her young podiatrist. She wants to take things further with him but she loves her husband. Now apparently the husband, at one point in their relationship, had an affair so Valerie thinks it’s ok to ask her hubs for a threesome – and not just one night. Her husband isn’t thrilled but he agrees. The doctor, while a bit leery, agrees as well and the three of them end up having a great time together in bed. I can’t say that I was thrilled with this story. I guess I had more of an issue with the relationship between husband and wife – knowing that the hubby had strayed at one point just made me think that the threesome relationship couldn’t last for some reason. I also felt the marriage would suffer for it. The story was sexy but I found it odd. Story three was my least favorite of the book. This one had Nikki joining her friends for a night out on the town. She meets a guy who seems nice and they start to talk. Unfortunately her friend brings to light that the man and his three friends are posing as doctors and just getting girls numbers – a contest of who can get the most. Nikki is disappointed as she doesn’t need another jerk in her life after her last boyfriend. When she heads to the gyno to get birth control a fill-in for her doctor arrives and guess who it is? The guy from the bar. Yes, he was really a doctor and they start to date. Besides having sex and basically moving in together afterward there wasn’t a whole lot more to the story.The premise of this book sounded great as I love erotic romance. Unfortunately there wasn’t a whole lot of romance. IMHO stories 1 & 2 had no romance at all. Story three was supposed to have romance but nothing too deep. Overall I found the stories to be just in the OK category. I definitely put this more under straight erotica so if you like those stories then this would be a good one for you.

    The Intern Sweeeeet! You don't get stories with couples with such an age gap very often, I think. At least I'd like to find more (feel free to leave recommendations in the comments!!). I'm one of those people who believes that love has nothing to do with age and roots in a damn-it-all-to-hell fashion for that kind of thing. ^.^ Thus, this was awesome, even if it wasn't the all goey happily ever after, but rather about self-condifence and a sense of self-worth which is very important for everyone, The Intern Sweeeeet!

Court sure knew how to handle her, boy... hot, so hot! And since their goals did seem to align, but... well, maybe the age difference would have eventually caught up with them. Lauren looking for something a little closer to home and age was logical and heartfelt, and you can't resent her for that.

It was a hot story, no doubt, but the plot didn't grip me this time. That Valerie had the guts to go after what she wanted takes some serious character. That she didn't have an affair but had her husband jump in the boat with her, totally awesome. That he agreed to it -- even more amazing! But for a short story it was too much prelude, and then not enough emotional detail during the sexy parts. The staring and sharing made this a very sizzling read, but I didn't like the sub/dom part. It was cool that the men turned the tables on her and the blindfold was... gosh! ... but it started out way too harsh. I think it's not a topic you can just squeeze in a few lines like that, it's way too delicate for that.

The head-over-heels time frame might feel ridiculous to some, but I guess just as many women dream it up like that. ;) It even sported the false-positive cheating panic cliche! Not everyone's taste, I can do without it just fine, but it didn't make me roll my eyes. It fit the characters and the short time span, and it was totally worth it. Wicked man! This story had the sexual as much as the sensual, the playing and sex talk, although it felt a bit stiff and forced for a few moments here and there. A hot start with an even hotter ending, the middle part was more about the romance, so it was the perfect smut short story.

ARC, e-book, 256 pages. Read from December 18 to 26, 2014. I’d like to thank Becca from Sourcebooks Casablanca and Netgalley for allowing me to read an advanced reader’s copy of this book! Publication date: January 6, 2015. This erotica novel contains 3 short stories with a doctor-theme. Whether the main character is a doctor or the love interest is one, if you fantasize about anything to do with doctors, you might want to pick this book up. The first story, I would say is by far the most romantic and, well different. Dr. Lauren Marks is in her mid-thirties and has just recently found herself divorced after her husband left without a goodbye one morning. The story revolves around her decisions to start living life for herself, and of course a hot new intern who happens to be way too young for her. This story had the most character development in it and for once, I didn’t mind. The sex scenes weren’t stellar but Dr. Lauren’s character was ultimately what drew me into this story. She is smart, strong and independent and she makes some awesome decisions in this story in regards to her ex-husband and with her hot new intern. The second story follows Valerie, who has recently required surgery on her ankle and happens to be hot for her surgeon. The downfall, she is married and loves her husband. However, her husband owes her a big favor and she decides to try to get permission from both men to join up for some threesome action. This story has the best sex scenes in it, by far! This story, for me, seemed to have found the perfect balance between character and the sex plot. I knew just enough about the characters to get involved in their story and then the rest was allllll sex! The final story in this book related to someone my own age, which was nice for a change, which must mean I’m getting old! Nikki is in her mid-twenties and has just recently suffered a break-up, but her awesome friends force her out for a night on the town. At the bar, Nikki hits it off with a really good-looking guy named Hunter and unfortunately the night goes sour later on thanks to his friends so she never gets his digits. While she continued to think about the Hunter she never expected to see him again. However, while going in for her annual check-ups Nikki finds herself in an uncomfortable situation when Hunter shows up in the exam room as her doctor. I cared for this story the least, despite being closer in age to Nikki; the sex scenes were okay and it just got all too mushy and unrealistically romantic for me at the end. Overall a decent erotica read with a nice mix of scenarios!

    The Intern Rating: 4 Stars This is some hot read in here. We have Lauren, a middle age woman who was abandoned by her husband and struggle to keep her practice opened and was succesful when she was able to partner with another doctor and share the financial burden. She is feeling lonely and in need of a stress reliever. When a colleague asks her to help with an intern she agrees without knowing that Courney is really Court and that he will awaken in her a long denied desire. It was really fun to The Intern Rating: 4 Stars This is some hot read in here.

She is feeling lonely and in need of a stress reliever. When a colleague asks her to help with an intern she agrees without knowing that Courney is really Court and that he will awaken in her a long denied desire. It was really fun to see this older woman try to hide her attraction to one of her employees. It was also fun how they tried to best each other when it came to make the other lustful. That scene of the exam room? Loved it! The only thing I didn`t like was that it was a HFN ending and that it as 1st person POV. I would really like to read more about Lauren, sppecially after that ending. My Doctor, My Husband, and Me Rating: 3 Stars In this story we have a forty four year old married woman, who after nineteen years of been with the same man, is attracted to a man several years her junior. But what really attracts her attention is that in every fantasy her husband is there. And so after gathering up her courage Valerie proposes to Luka, her surgeon, and Elliot, her husband, to a menage. It was really interesting to see how this woman past her youthful years deals with this new facet to her life. How she is afraid of hurting her husband even when he was unfaithful to her at one time. Valerie is also dealing with the fact that she is an older woman that might not be atractive enough for a young man like Luka. I just would have like for the story to have more depth. The story consentrated to just the encounters of the threesome but didn't give any more background info of the characters. But overall it was a good story. Seize the Doctor Rating: 5 Stars I really enjoy this story. It made me laugh and it kind of reminded me of myself. That shy, introverted, awkward girl that is afrair of trying more bold, out-of-the-box things that might get her noticed. But unlike me, she did get over it and tried hard to be a completely diferent person. I did tought their love came a little to qiuckly but it's more the fact that there was not much day-to-day details. The story skipped weeks at a time so the main characters could be together. The story came full circle with the characters beeing in the GYN patient room. And that last encounter? Oh, it sudendly hot in here! Again it was a great story but I would have liked it to be longer with moe depth into the characters lives.

Lastly is Sei A three story anthology, all having a central common theme of medical professionals, but each story has its own twist and set up before the adult-themed playing doctor games begin. The Intern, is an older woman – younger man story. She is devastated and reeling from a divorce, and his attentions boost her confidence and ego, and reawaken her sexuality. My Doctor, My Husband and Me is a fantasy come to life menagé story where Valerie gets her nerve up and finds willing participants. Lastly is Seize the Doctor, where new love is offered to a young woman after her last boyfriend was unfaithful, if only she can reach out to accept what this doctor is ordering. As a collection, these three stories worked well together, although some did work better than others in terms of character and plot development. Short stories are tricky – each word needs to count for three or four, and there isn’t time to methodically develop characters. In The Intern, my least favorite, the characters felt flat and Lauren, in particular, felt very ‘teen’ in attitude and approach. It made her quite difficult to reconcile with her character of ‘older woman’ and the whole story just didn’t work for me. Valerie’s tale in My Doctor, My Husband and Me presented characters that already had some solidity to them, and the blurring of the professional lines only added to the heat levels in this story. A straight M-F –M where it most certainly was pay attention to Valerie time for the encounter, the read was steamy and left an impression that it may not be just a one-off fantasy fulfillment. Lastly, Nikki is in for her yearly exam when who should be the doctor but the hot guy from the club she met earlier? Seize the Doctor has some clever interactions with the very discombobulated Nikki as she struggles with the embarrassment. She’s still reeling from her ex being unfaithful, but the hot doc may just be the cure for what ails her. Overall these weren’t bad, they just weren’t super steamy, leaning more to the ‘romantic’ side of things, without much window dressing. I am not a fan of purple prose, but some poetic license with the language and word choices: erotica isn’t always the place for anatomically correct verbiage. There were moments that needed to be tightened up, and the characters could have used a more solid sense of self from the beginning, but as an introduction to erotica of the softer variety, this collection works. I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

What made me pick this book up initially was it sounded interesting. This book was published in 2015 and I picked it up from my local library. If you would like to read the full review: story one, story two, and story three. The Intern Lauren describes Ted’s leaving as a betrayal but I'm not sure how. He moved to that area for her and realized he wasn’t happy anymore so why is it his fault he decided to leave. She even comments that she knew he couldn’t be able to handle it but that wasn’t enough for her to move the city for him. This has narratives from Lauren and Courtney. Each chapter is about 2-3 pages long. The scene were Ted is asking about Courtney felt fake because it feel like it was placed her in order to set up a confrontation later. Ted didn’t really try that hard and I still don’t understand why he’s apologizing for not being happy in the country. I give this story though a 5/5 My Doctor, My Husband, And Me, I’m unsure if Luka is dark as in black or dark as in tan. She is 44 It always feels like Valerie is stressing but more so like the vocabulary is stressing than the actual character. Like she always got her way in situations but she definitely stressed about it for a while. I didn’t really care for what happened in this story. I didn’t feel the hotness of everybody. When I read the blurb, I thought this was going to be like Elliott and Luka came together and surprised Valerie with a threesome not that it was her plan. She says “I find his foreignness romantically exotic.” Bitch what. If that’s not the whitest American thing you’ve ever heard I don’t know what is. Europhile? What is that? I give this story a 2/5 Seize The Doctor They’ve only been together 6 months. You should take some time to read the chapter titles. The narrative switches between Hunter and Nikki but there are no warnings. You just figure it out from context clues and realizing you’re in their head. Eh I give this story a 2/5 OVERALL, I THINK THE FIRST STORY WAS THE BEST AND THE NEXT TWO WEREN'T UP TO THE SAME LEVEL

It all starts when Dr. Lauren Marks agrees to take on an intern as a favor. Lauren is trying to forget about her failed marriage and focus on her small town medical practice. When Courtney turns out to be a sexy, hot young man she will feel things that she has not felt in a very long time. And they are all sexual feelings that has her debating crossing the line with a much younger man. My Favorite Moment: Oh, what a great company picnic! The Intern gets 3 Fiery Hearts!    My Doctor, My Husband and Me is more about a fantasy that is first created in the mind of Valerie. The hot and steamy new surgeon has a voice that will make all your dreams come true. With her husband all in on her fantasies, the three of them come up with ideas on how to make Valerie very happy in the bedroom. My Favorite Laughable Moments: It must be very amusing to have a couple come to a restaurant and ask if you will be their third person. My Doctor, My Husband and Me gets 2.5 Fiery Hearts!    Seize the Doctor was more like a quick hook up that was really face paced. Nikki is really down on love and her friends think a night at a meat market club is just the thing to do. Nikki is in the process of changing her looks, attitude and demeanor at work and in her personal life. Meeting a hot and sexy man at the night club has her saying “Out with the old, in with the new” until she finds out that they are just playing a game to see how many girls they can hook up with. Seeing that her magnet for pigs is still in full force she decided to work on herself instead. Going to the doctor to get on birth control is a very big step for Nikki especially when her doctor is out sick and the fill in is her hot hunk from the nightclub. My Favorite Characters: I really loved Nikki’s friends. They are the complete opposite from her and they don’t sugar coat anything when it comes to protecting their friend. Seize the Doctor gets 3 Fiery Hearts!    I really wish that all of these stories were full length. I think they all have the potential to be great stories on their own.
