REVIEW: Dr OBscene by Max Monroe


The joke was on her, though.  She deserved to be nothing less than the center of my universe.

I’ve had Max Monroe books on my Kindle forever, and never picked them up.  To be honest, I have a lot of books on my Kindle I’ve never picked up #sorrynotsorry.  But the other night, when watching my Instagram stories, one of my favorite bookstagrammers was talking about this one, and I decided to give it a try.  And I am so glad that I did!

Dr OB tells the story of Will Cummings, an OB/GYN at St Luke’s Hospital that is featured in a new documentary that he thinks is about his practice, and the field of obstetrics.  Instead, its a drama filled reality show, that makes Will look less than stellar.  Hilarities ensue!  Melody Marco unwillingly takes the position of his new nurse because a. she desperately needs a job, and b. they hire her on the spot because she’s never seen the docudrama and doesn’t want in Will’s pants….yet 😉

There are so many wonderful things I can say about this book.  It’s hilarious.  It has strong male and female leads.  It felt real, and not like some instant love match.  The writing was fabulous.  Let’s take a minute to break them each down:

IT’S HILARIOUS – I don’t think I’ve ever laughed out loud at a book on just the first page like I did with Dr OB.  The writing duo of Max Monroe had me snickering, giggling, and full out laughing throughout the entire first chapter.  The inner dialogue of the characters was so engaging, and some of the situations they found themselves in were, albeit, ridiculous, but also incredibly humorous.  It made the story flow really well, and made me keep turning the pages.

STRONG LEADS – Will and Melody are both awkward.  Their first few encounters are horrifically embarrassing.  But it’s that awkwardness that makes them so endearing.  I just loved Will.  He was sweet, adorable, and really loved Melody.  And Melody had an enormous heart, and was so caring towards her patients.  They both felt very “real.”  Like two people you’d meet in real life, and to me, that’s the sign of a really good writer.

NO INSTA LOVE – I really, really don’t like insta love.  I feel it’s contrived.  I mean, I’m sure it can happen.  But I just don’t like when two characters are in love before they even truly know each other.

THE WRITING – Max Monroe definitely know what they are doing when it comes to bringing a story together.  The chapters flowed together, the writing was smooth, and the dialogue was incredibly believable.  I understand now why so many people rave about these two mystery authors and their writing together as a team.

Dr OB is the first in a trilogy centering around three doctors at St Lukes and their involvement in the docu-drama.  Dr ERotic is next in the trilogy and I’ll definitely be starting it soon!!
