I think this story falls into the category of opposites attract. The characters were interesting, but I think they still have some things to work out together in order have a lasting relationship. The story ends with them having a really good start at it, but I felt there could have had either a bit more to the story or an epilogue to provide me with a HEA (happy ever after) ending.

*Has spoilers.*Unfortunately the whole book was hit and miss for me. I didn't dislike it but I didn't love it either. The concept was good and initially the first meeting between the two protags- Chris and Phil- was hot, playful and fun, making me think that this was how the tone of the story was going to be but after that it rapidly turned more 'angsty'.Christopher Love is a rich, handsome, successful plastic surgeon ( Dr Love ) in his early thirties but for all this he is lonely and still ...more

G.A. Hauser is a “sure” thing; I mean, you have to be used to her style, she is always over the line, she doesn’t play “nice”, and her characters are unpolitically correct, but if you know that, you also know that her stories are always uber-romantic, and that her men are 100% men who are not scared to feel emotions and to fall in love.

Calling Dr. Love is a typically cinderfella romance; handsome 33 years old doctor, Chris, meets hot 25 years old exotic dancer, Phil, and it’s sex at first sight…

So this book was very frustrating at times. I really wanted to shake both Chris and Phil and say just talk to each other and then you would not be in this situation. I was also a little mad that they kept saying he was too masculine to be treated like a woman. Whatever. So now you say how are you giving this so many stars when it me you obviously did not like it? I did like the book. I like this author and will read more. I actually wish there was a sequel in order to see how they work it all ...more

Hauser addresses a lot of stereotypes in this book, such as the gay porn star, society's views and prejudices against such, gay promiscuity, etc. While the characters themselves didn't appeal to me at first, their introspection helped them grow on me. Something about Hauser's books keeps me coming back, even though I haven't truly liked the last several I've read. I think they are written with honesty and if she could avoid the language that perpetuates the stereotypes that I personally don't ...more

I really wanted to love this book, but I just couldn't. I felt bad for Phil because he was struggling so much, but I lost patience with his distress about debt when he refused to give up the lease on his extravagant car. I also had difficulty with Phil's phrasing of why he didn't want Christopher to take care of him and his debts. He said he didn't want to be a woman. I can understand that some men struggle with how others perceive them and how they don't want to be seen as weak. However, the ...more
Mini Review:
The struggle is very emotional. Fighting with preconceived notions and even though the characters know their prejudices are wrong, they still fight to remove them. An extreme contrast in social status and struggle. But both characters struggling.
The HEA felt a bit rushed at the end. But it doesn't exactly tie itself into a pretty bow either. You could say the end is open... and allows for further exploration of this couple in the future.

3.5 stars. I enjoyed the story of the doctor and the go-go dancing porn star and their many misunderstandings. Both of them had their idiot moments, which I appreciated - so often one character ends up with all the idiot times while the other displays saintly patience. Phil did manage to ditch his pride rather easily in the end.

While the characters had potential--I found Phil to be particularly interesting, if not quite fully developed--the story lacked something. I think the characters were just too weepy, to fast to declare undying love after a chance encounter in a Nordstrom's dressing room.
