Houston, We Have a Problem is Grey’s Anatomy in book form. The book is like a bunch of episodes of Grey’s Anatomy compressed together.

Don’t get me wrong. I love Grey's Anatomy. This book is a fast, fun and hot read. Who knew that behind the cute pink cover lies a book where almost 50% of the pages talk about either the protagonists' attraction to each other or how they would love to have a taste of each other. There’s humor, fatal attraction and almost love scenes in the hospital closet. Thank g

There was a great premise and good characters here, but they were wasted on nothing but sex. Their getting together, their continued attraction, their love – all based on sex and sexual attraction. We weren't given anything else. Every conversation, what little there was, swung around to sex. Every scene with the two together ended up with sex/sexual activity. I really wanted to root for these two but it was hard when I couldn't identify any reason for them to be together beyond great sexytimes. ...more

Though I have had this book in my to-be-read pile for ages, I finally took the plunge after reading the enthusiastic review that my friend Zahu posted on Goodreads. We both (and I guess more than half of the romance reading population) have a thing for hot and tortured heroes who exert rigid control over their emotions and suddenly along comes the bubbly heroine who seems to bring down the walls of reserve that the hero has built so painstakingly over the years within just a couple of minutes. I ...more

4.5/5 stars. Really enjoyed this one. I was a bad girl and stayed up until 4am last night because I couldn't stop reading it. Tsk tsk. I liked it better than other Erin McCarthy books I have read in the past.

I work in a hospital, so I really enjoyed some of the snark directed at doctors being the worst patients. The book had very steamy scenes and lots of 'em. It also had some nice humor, but it had a bit of a sad edge at times to make it a little more interesting. I also love that the ending w

Houston thinks about sex every 3 seconds. Therefore, you get to read about him thinking about, dreaming about or having sex every 3 seconds. The other few seconds you get to read about Josie thinking about how she's going to try really hard (maybe) to not have sex with Houston every 3 seconds. And so it goes . . . I'm all for the steam in a romance novel but I do like a little plot in between. It was hard to find in here, though they did throw some stitches and an operation in for good measure. ...more

Loved it! This book is the epitome of a chick-lit novel. Perfect for a day at the beach, or a fun weekend read.

The story itself is entertaining, and keeps you interested the whole way through, and if that doesn't do it for you, the steamy "romance" scenes, which there are PLENTY of, should do it for you.

You want to punch Houston in his face. The story is ridiculously underdeveloped. However, my ratings are usually rounded up, so it gets 3 stars. OK book as far as "Chick Lit" goes.

But books like this are why "chick lit" is a stigma.

Another light sexy fun contemporary from Erin McCarthy. Doctors in love? Sort of. She's a bit too insecure. He's rather an ass. But a shark attack brings them together. Really.

Still fun sexy stuff.

I lovelovelove every Erin McCarthy book that I have read so far, and this one is no exception! She mixes humor and sex perfectly. I can't wait to get my hands on more of her books!

McCarthy's writing is very easy to read and jump right into. The world is fairly simple and the characters entertaining. Two horny doctors that are driving each other crazy. He's a brilliant, arrogant and emotionally distant surgeon and she's a bubbly, cheerful doctor in training dealing with insecurities that has been reduced to a complete and utter klutz whenever she's in the same room with Houston. Loved the start with Houston drooling inappropriately over Josie. And he continues to do so thr ...more

ok, i just read three of mccarthy's books in the last two days and i'm just going to cut and paste my review for all three - because its all the same stuff!

don't get me wrong - they're exactly right for what i was looking for today: fun, fast reads with good-ish characters and fabulous sex.

"smart mouth", "houston we have a problem" and "mouth to mouth" are all great books - with "mouth to mouth" being a "better" book in terms of character development, story line, etc. but still, all three are d

A 4 stars. It was a very pleasant story. Very funny as well as sad. Giggly Big Girl wanted people to get her serious but how can that be possible if she was clumsy. It is truly unique that a woman can possible be clumsy for falling over another doctor. But it was surely sweet how she was taken the challenge of the making Houston fall in love with her. But she did even though it hurt her at the end. How Houston, was so mature at the age of 15 years old to take care of his mom and sister because t ...more

I found the book as a fast, fun read. The main character Josie was pretty believable because she wasn't perfect and had her flaws but Houston looked last that and saw her for what she is. There were just the cute little parts where you just made the book what it is for example the pattern on Josie's underwear each day of the week, which was pretty hilarious reading Houston's reaction. I was so not expecting Houston to get hurt but hey that's the thrill of a book. I love, love, lived the bit in t ...more

I liked it, but probably will not read it again. Ever.

I loved the humor and stuff like that in this book, and though I'm aware that sextual attractions are needed in a realationship, but I cannot see any development between the hero and heroine that can be led to love other than he always seem to want to get into her pants no matter when or where they are. So instead of 4 or 4.5 star, I can only give it a 3 star.

I liked this steamy story about orthopedic surgeon Houston and his cheery but clumsy resident doctor Josie. It had a good plot and the action moved along with lots of sex but he seemed a bit too resistant to their relationship.
Maria
Why do I give in to the temptation of very bad romances with cheesy love scenes? I somehow can't resist reading passages out loud to my spouse, then cackling madly. But I keep coming back for more!
Andrea
Trashy but fun. I agree with the other review that said it kind of reminded you of Grey's Anatomy.

Contemporary romance with protected sex.

This is a favorite reread from way back in 2004. Sexy Dr. Houston & klutzy resident Josie get to know each other.

One thing that bothered me about this story & why I couldn't give it 5 stars was Josie's poor self image. Almost every chapter had her bashing her body. I guess if my dad's nickname for me was "butterball" I might have some issues too, but it wears on you after a while talking about her chubby thighs & describing herself as plump

Could have been a good read if the background of both characters had been further developed. If you want a quick read with lots of sexual tension, that one is for you.

However, if you're looking for a real comforting read a la Susan Elizabeth Phillips, you may skip that one.

I was sort of disappointed... Not enough feelings... Too much sex and that's a pity because both characters were likable ]_[ My first try at an Erin McCarthy book... I don't know if I will give another of her book a chance.

I think this book is intended to be categorized as chick-lit, but for me it didn't really fit that category. I liked the characters, Josie and Houston, just fine. They both had a couple of complex issues to deal with. Josie can't understand why Houston would like her when she's so pudgy and short. Houston is mad for Josie's body but he is a man who never reveals his feelings or lets himself feel affection for anyone other than family.

Much of the book is about them wanting to have sex--in fact, t

I decided to give my brain a break between Looking for Alaska and Thirteen Reasons Why. This book was just eh. Everything ewas way too on the surface. There was no depth to any of the characters and the "conflict" between the hero and heroine could have been played out so much better. He was against marriage due to a abusive father and she felt she was too plump to be desirable to anyone. In addition, she felt that no one took her seriously as a surgeon because she felt she was too cute and then ...more

This is one of those laugh out loud books like Janet E.'s. Great for a rainy day!!

Loved this one. Very hot read.

Josie has always had trouble being taken seriously, but now her life is a disaster. Whenever, Dr. Houston Hayes in around she is a complete klutz, and it is driving her crazy. When Dr. Hayes suggests one night of passion to to relieve their sexual tension, Josie is torn between her desire and her fear.
This romance follows the trail of most romances, but it was a lot of fun getting there. With a couple of unexpected twists and some really hot love scenes, it kept me up until 2am finishing.

I've been watching The Mindy Project lately and I'm totally crushing on the character of Danny Castellano. So reading a book about a stoic, sexy doctor made me think of him. I couldn't help picturing Danny as Dr. Houston Hayes from this novel. With that said, I really loved this story. It was short, sweet, and sexy; exactly what you expect from Erin McCarthy. The storyline was really cute and I liked both main characters. McCarthy has a skill for writing romance that is both sexy and funny - lik ...more

Josie Adkins is not your typical heroine, but Houston Hayes is your typical hero. I absolutely enjoyed this one. Josie is an orthopedic resident under the tutelage of Dr. Hayes, Mentor. Whenever in his presence, she develops "Dropping Medical Equipment Syndrome". Josie is not your usual romance type. She is short, curvy, bubbly; and she knows when to say "no" and stick to it. Just what the doctor ordered for someone like Houston Hayes. A delightful, steamy read.
~Megan~
What a cute story! Stoic and silent doctor meets bubbly and happy co-worker, she cracks the ice around his heart, and they live happily ever after. This happens to be one of my favorite formulas, and McCarthy delivers on it beautifully. Not only are there lots of laughs, but there is surprisingly a lot of depth with the characters. I loved them both, and was happy for their happy ending.

Cheguei a pensar que não iria terminar de ler este livro. Não porque fosse desinteressante mas porque me pareceu um história demasiado previsível. No entanto, com o evoluir da leitura, dei comigo a gostar das personagens; da insegurança e fragilidade da personagem feminina e do tormento e sofrimento do personagem masculino.
Lea
This book started out really funny - laugh out loud funny! The first 100 pages or so were also fast paced and I was really enjoying this book... but then it got bogged down and the pace slowed considerably. Overall it was an ok cute read, not great but good enough that I'll try another one of Erin McCarthy's books.
