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

Two commitment-phobe doctors with conflicting views about burnout reluctantly fall in love

Dr. Lily Reid, M.D., is 34. Seven years ago during her residency training, her fiance, a fellow resident doctor, committed suicide. Lily has avoided romantic relationships ever since and has no desire to ever have children. This horrendous tragedy also led to a permanent change of career for Lily. Unlike practicing medicine, which she realized at the time of her loss that she had only been pursuing because

California author Jill Blake is a practicing physician who brings insight to her book that addresses issues of physician burnout, depression, and suicide. Her initial idea for this novel – ‘What if a woman who is smart, mouthy, and willing to challenge the establishment decides to turn her personal tragedy into a cautionary lesson for other physicians?

I volunteered to review this book without any promises about the review (the rating or the posting).

When I first started this book my excitement was quickly overshadowed by the feeling of having facts, legal terms and actions being shoved in my face. I pushed forward because I wanted to see how the overall story would play out. I was happy I did.

The following is my personal opinion and thoughts about many aspects of this book and its author.

Lily Reid, the only daughter of an eminent physician had dropped out of medicine during her residency and had instead focused her life and career on helping medical professionals deal with the overwhelming stress, depression and incredibly high suicide rate that so often is the bane of the medical profession. In The Burnout Cure: A Prescription Romance by Jill Blake, Lily believes vehemently in her advocacy and is a determined, strong and independ

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

I borrowed The Burnout Cure via Kindle Unlimited and really enjoyed it. I also learned a lot about physician burnout. I'd heard that medical residents have to work around the clock with minimal sleep, but this romance really brings home the toll it takes in terms of depression, exhaustion, and the possibility of something as horrible as suicide for residents and doctors.

In The Burnout Cure, Lily Reid is a passionate motivational speaker who tries to help physicians avoid becoming a statistic. A

Dr. Lily Reid was planning on becoming a doctor but when her life took a sharp turn she decided instead to becoming a speaker on the burnout that many doctor's face but don't seek help from. The problem she has now is that she needs a way to reach a larger audience and she is struggling.

Dr. Wolf Knox is attending the 65th Annual Postgraduate Medical Assembly as a favor to his close friend, Dr. Douglas Williams. He has no interest in the presentations at all but finds himself attracted to speaker

I received a free complimentary book through Reading Deals and voluntarily reviewed it.

When I first started reading this book, I was wondering if I was reading a factual book about “physician burnout.” Since I knew this book was fiction, I knew that this could not be true. However, I had never read anything by this author before, so I thought that, maybe, this author was just, overtly, concentrating on an issue that was very dear to her heart while tying it up in a small fiction story.

​​​​​The Burnout Cure is a well-written and exciting medical romance. Author Jill Blake is a full-time physician, so her story is replete with an in depth knowledge and understanding of what goes on in the medical profession. This narrative is a welcome addition to Ms. Blake's established book library.

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

I received the ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This is a different story which starts with two doctors, one a practicing hospitalist and the other a researcher who studies doctor's burnout and suicide. Although they are instantly attracted to each other, they seem to disagree on her work in the area of doctor suicide and other issues. It makes for an interesting dynamic and it is something that I knew nothing about.

Overall, I liked the book but did not love it. The main chara

Lily Ried is giving lectures about her research but no one seems to be listening until she meets Wolf. However these two colleagues don't always seem to see eye to eye until it came to the bedroom!. Can these two lovebirds find the cure for burnout or will they just get burned? ...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.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book. I loved this book. It is a shame that it is a work of fiction, because physician burnout and suicides are a real issue today. As a romance novel, this book was super! Lily and Wolf are a great couple and have a lot of spunk and spice between them. I cannot wait to read more books from this author.
