Readers always ask where I get my ideas.

With The Burnout Cure, I didn’t have far to look. While Wolf, Lily, and the characters who inhabit their world are fictional, the issues of physician burnout, depression, and suicide are very real—as are the sobering statistics that Lily quotes about how many physicians are affected.

The first seeds of this story were planted back when I was a young doctor-in-training. As Lily, the heroine of The Burnout Cure describes in the book, the hours and work condit

The Burnout Cure is billed as a contemporary romance/medical romance. Yes, it’s a love story. Yes, it includes smoking hot sex scenes. Yes, it has a happy ending. But it also has a serious message that author Jill Blake deftly interweaves with the plot and character development, in a way that enhances the story.

Full disclosure: I recently finished residency, so the world described in The Burnout Cure is very familiar to me. Blake is spot on with her rendering of the high-stress, high-demand, sou

Looking for a steamy romance to keep you company during the holidays (or throughout the year)? Look no further! The Burnout Cure is here and truly delivers some hot sex scenes. The story is not just about that: you also have a very good and captivating storyline involving two good-looking doctors who don’t see eye to eye in many situations, leading to a love/hate relationship.
Although it’s a romance, there’s a very serious topic approached here. Burnout affects a growing number of professionals

Jill Blake has a purpose to show the struggles physicians have when they feel burnout out at the pace their profession runs. They aren’t allowed to complain about the hours because it gives them bad reviews and if they show any form of mental weakness or reservations they could be ostracized without getting the help they desperately need. Often the only way they see out is to quit either the profession or end their life. Suicide is scary and it shakes a community when it is a doctor, they are th ...more

The Burnout Cure is a romance with a message- doctors need to have relaxation time too and recognize, manage and overcome their burnout symptoms. The story has other subtle messages too such as making use of humor to reach wider audience and keeping the listeners engaged and interested. The story obviously has the romantic element. The story is hot and sexy.and has the regular spice element, but it is the varied messages that makes the book above average.
