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.
This is a really cute and funny book! This is Will and Melody's story. Will Cummings is an the Head of Obstetrics at St. Luke's Hospital. He is also Georgia's brother (from Tapping the Billionaire). He got involved in a documentary show hoping to educate the public about obstetrical issues, but the show turned out to be a lighthearted reality show edited to make him look like a joke and a playboy. He is upset the way the show has turned out and has turned his world upside down. Melody recently moved back to the city, and back into her childhood bedroom at her parents' home, after a breakup of a long-term relationship. She is an OB nurse, but she has never seen Will's show. Melody just wants a job so she can move on with her life and get her own place. She interviews at his office and is hired immediately, because she is only applicant that didn't apply just to hit on Dr. Will. Melody and Will have instant chemistry and both really like each other. But he has to prove to her that his tv persona is not the real him, which is hard when most of his patients and women in public are hitting on him. Will is a good guy and Melody can see that, but the stress of the his portrayal on the show affects their burgeoning relationship. They manage to navigate through the drama and fall in love.
I really liked both Will and Melody. Will is a really good guy, a normal guy painted badly by editing for tv ratings. I felt bad for him and everything he had to go through. Melody knows he is a good guy and not a tv jerk. They have to learn to tune out everything but their feelings for each other. Mel and Will were really funny and cute together. Their office banter was hilarious. They had the best first date ever and found they had an awesome, soul-mate type connection when they were together. There were so many really funny moments, from the bitchy receptionist nicknaming Melody "Loady", to a horribly funny accident involving a menstrual cup, to a patient laminating her phone number and putting it inside her for the doctor to find during a pelvic exam. The sexy times were hot (Hello! Sexy times in the stirrups on the exam table!), too. I really enjoyed watching Melody and Will's relationship develop. I also enjoyed catching up with the rest of the gang from the Billionaires Bad Boys series again.
This was a very sweet, low angst read. Will was smitten with Melody and willing to do whatever it took to prove his feelings for her. The story was interesting and original. Dr. OB was a romantic comedy full of sweetness and sexiness. I can't wait to meet the other two doctors in the series, Dr. ER and Dr. Neuro!
