Nikki Sloane- aka Queen of Hot Times- has tried her hand at taboo book and fans will not be disappointed!

This is an age gap book between our heroine, Cassidy, and (GASP) her boyfriend's dad, Dr. Lowe (who I'm going to refer to as Dr. Daddy- side note, I love Cassidy's best friend!). I love the way these two bridge from their roles as Father/son's girlfriend (awkward) to two people who just connect, regardless of age. And the added taboo of how they met is hot!

The doctor is a fast paced, quick, sexy read that will have you cranking up the AC at warped speed! It was taboo, raunchy, and just enough erotic moments to make you gasp and give you that thrill of knowing you’re about to go into forbidden territory.

Have you ever had a fantasy that was so forbidden and dirty in your mind that you know for a fact that pigs will eventually fly before it comes true? We’ve all been there, thought that, and nineteen year old Cassidy is no different. Though the

Taboo, steamy, a bit of angst. Essentially a “my ex’s dad” trope, so you get the age gap and the secret forbidden aspect. It’s a good read if this is what you’re looking for. Not much else happens outside of the angst that comes with this trope and hot naughty bits. All in all a good read if you want quick and hot.

It feels like it's been a while since I've read a Nikki Sloane book but no worries by the end of chapter one, I was totally back acquainted with the way she writes and her snoking hot words. And what's even better is she's back with a forbidden romance that was crazy fucking hot, page turning breathless in moments, and so incredibly good, like captivated cover to cover kind of good.

This was my first...and NO I CANNOT BELIEVE IT by Nikki Sloane. I have several books on my TBR shelf but for one reason or another just haven't gotten to them. This story had so much more promise for me but fell a little short. It was a steamy read for sure but the story itself could have been....I don't know just more.

I’m VERY surprised this was a Nikki Sloane book. Look, she writes some good smutty reads. I mean her reads have substance, tons of kinky sex and a great storyline. I don’t know what happened with this one.

The smut was there and it was the focal point of the book as it should be, but the storyline was lacking a lot. I’m kind of disappointed this will be a series because I can’t see myself reading more from this world, but I will because I love Nikki Sloane.

I am a HUGE Nikki Sloane fan as her Sordid duet and The Rivalry are absolute favorites of mine. While I liked The Doctor and thought it was sexy, I did not really feel the connection between Greg and Cassidy at all beyond the physical. I really missed seeing and feeling an emotional connection and as a result this story was sort of a mixed bag for me unfortunately.

Nikki Sloane is legit hands down an expert at writing sexytimes. That is an undisputed fact in my eyes as she has delivered another p

WOW …. This book! So the story is very sexually driven, but it is NOT porn on paper. I swear, it felt like every other page I turned there was sex. Really good sex. Drawn out sex. Delicious sex. So much so that while reading this delicious little story, I PM’d a really good friend an update that went like this:

First, I loved Nikki Sloane’s Blindfold series - Raising my hand for an ARC of this story was a no-brainer. Pick me, pick me!! So it saddens me to say that it left me feeling just ‘meh’ :( Cue all the tears and hold up my 2.5ish stars.

The biggest thing was I never felt the connection between the two MCs. I mean, yes they had some hot freakin' sex. A whole lot of it. But it happened so quick with little dialogue or build up that even at halfway through the book I wasn’t feeling their c

The Doctor by Author Nikki Sloane is a standalone taboo treat with an age gap.

“When his gaze slid down to my parted lips, I knew we were doomed, and the worst part was I didn’t care. I wanted it to happen. I tilted my chin up to meet him as he lowered his mouth to mine.”

Starting a story with a bit of temptation is like sticking chocolate cake on a plate in front of me and expecting me not to pounce. Temptation and lust mix and there is no holding me back.

4.5 Stars for this H-O-T so so so HOT - like you want your significant other next to you while reading this scorcher....


The Doctor has a dark, forbidden, age gap romance that is something that I have never read before. It's Fifty Shades of Grey's Anatomy and should be placed in this category! I read this book in one sitting and I don't want to have to wait for forever for Nikki Sloane's next release, ugh!

Until I finally did get to read and finish the book only then did I realize that it did not manage to deliver what I was expecting from the intriguing, sexy and forbidden blurb.

Scorching hot!!! A touch taboo and a sweet romance. Okay, maybe more than a touch a taboo, but really that's what made it oh, so, sexy.

Home from college, Cassidy is realizing her boyfriend is not all that he used to be. He puts her last in all things and she is finally realizing that this is just not how she wants to be any longer. But just because she has made a decision doesn't make it any easier and who does she find comfort in???? OH YES, her ex's dad.

This was a super quick read. As the blurb states a young girl has been lusting after her boyfriend's father who is a hot, alpha type and also a doctor. A trauma surgeon to be exact. She has had more then a few fantasies about the doctor but has always pushed them out of her head. Why? Well, it's her boyfriend's dad and he is so much older then her. (Insert eye roll).

The Doctor by Nikki Sloane sizzled and popped with heat and sexual awareness from the very first encounter between these two forbidden love characters. Cassiday is in her first year of college and dating her boyfriend of three years. Now, during summer break, Preston has become distant and Cassiday breaks it off, and turns to another man for solace. Nothing really wrong with that, except the other man is much older and Preston’s dad to boot.

Whoa. Is it hot in here or is it just me?!

I'll admit there was a bit more sexy-times than I wanted, but I'm not even mad about it. Each new scene was hotter than the one before it.
I wanted more angst. That is my problem, but honestly, this was well done. There was just enough angst to keep me moving through the pages and excited to see what would happen.

Greg Lowe is sexy as sin. He might be older than Cassidy--by 20 years--but that doesn't make h

Have you ever wanted to watch a porn because it seemed like the perfect execution of your hottest sexual fantasies and you knew that it was going to deliver whatever your expectations were? (At least for me, those expectations are usually that the woman gets to experience her own pleasure, let's put it that way. Basically impossible for the majority of porn movies)
"The Doctor" will work wonderfully for you, if your answer is yes.
It did for me. But that's what it is, a long sequence of taboo sex.

As soon as I read the blurb of The Doctor by Nikki Sloane I knew I had to read this book. Tabboo romance with an age gap, yes please! I already love Nikki’s stories, which are sexy and steamy romances, now add in a forbidden romance and I am captivated from the start!

Cassidy has known Dr. Lowe for a long time, as he is her ex-boyfriend’s father. Yep, you read that right. She knew it was time to end things with Preston, but not to worry, Dr. Lowe can take care of business. And wow, does he take

I can hardly believe this is the first book I have ever read by Nikki Sloane. I have quite a few books of hers on my TBR and I cannot wait to get to all of them. Her writing in The Doctor is sexy, erotic, and extremely steamy. Cassidy is a 19 year college student that has been with her boyfriend Preston for 3 years. The book begins with Cassidy realizing that he has never really felt the same way for her as she does him. He seems to be using her and is never there for her when she truly n

The Doctor is a fast paced, steamy, sexy, quick read. You must know by now that I LOVE forbidden romances, that's why I was excited to read it. I was expecting something angsty, dark and well it was definitely not, ha. Don't get me wrong, I did enjoy this book, despite it not being what I expected.

Any Nikki Sloane book is a book I know I’m going to HAVE to read. So of course when The Doctor was announced I know I had to give it a read and I’m glad I did.

ARC read in exchange for an honest review.

Cassidy was a good character to get to know. She’s smart, loving and puts everyone before herself.

Preston was an idiot, having fallen for his best friend and then dating her he soon put al her feelings to the side and began ignoring what she needed and wanted.

Greg is a hot, sexy and delicious

I really enjoyed reading The Doctor by Nikki Sloane - it was a lot of fun to read, the 2 main characters are super hot together and have an abundance of chemistry, and there is a little bit of angst throughout the storyline.

I love reading a romance where there is an age difference, in this case a 21 year age gap. AND the love interest for Cassidy is her ex-boyfriends father. Dr Lowe was HOT! So much hotter than his son Preston (sorry Preston, maybe you will be super hot when you're 40!!) Cassid
