A full-length STANDALONE romantic comedy from USA TODAY bestselling author R.S. Grey.

Dr. Russell has a bad reputation around our hospital. The scrub techs say he’s cold-blooded, the nurses say he’s too cocky for his own good, and the residents say he’s the best surgeon in the world—really, just a swell guy!—on the off chance he’s within earshot.

I try to avoid him and his

Hotshot Doc is a brand new stand alone by an author I can’t seem to get enough of, R.S. Grey. Every one of her books is so different. I didn’t quite know what to expect with this one and I ended up being amazed. These characters…! I can’t wait to tell you about them.

Bailey Jennings might have entertained the idea of studying medicine at a point many years ago. But at the age of twenty, her parents were killed and she became the guardian of her little sister, Josie. Never for a minute did she reg

I’m shaking as if he has me on the edge of a cliff. One single finger could push me over. I’d tumble down, and right now, there’s no way to know what awaits me at the bottom. Pain, love, heartache, elation—each is as likely as the last and I can’t willingly do this to myself. I can’t give myself over to a man who has the power to upend my life so easily.

HOTSHOT DOC is yet another FIVE STAR READ by the amazingly talented R.S. Grey! Over the p

Are you fed up with your reality problems?

Do you wish for a balm to your battered soul?

Do you seek escape in the form of paper and words?

If the answer is yes, then Hotshot Doc is perfect for you!

You don’t need to know much in order to dive in R.S. Grey’s latest rom-com. Only that there is a medical clinic. A pediatric spinal surgeon who is supposed to be the devil incarnate. A surgical assistant searching for a new boss. And a toe-curling, heartwarmin

Simply Amazing!!! The more I read from this talented author, the more I love, the more I can't wait for the next book.

It's hard to put in words how I feel for Matt & Bailey. They are beautiful, they are sweet, their love is undeniable. So here are a couple gif's that try to give you an idea of how much I loved this couple and this book.

This book had my attention from the start. I couldn't read fast enough, I just couldn't get enough. This author writes flawlessly. Definitely a recommend to

This book had a premise of becoming a great read for me.
The hero, who saved children; a heroine, who raised her sister; non-manwhore hero, non-virginal heroine; sweet epilogue.

But... As an adult woman with some life experience, I just don't get why any smart woman would pine for a man, who is rude to her...
I. Just. Don't. Get. It!!!

What bothered me a lot: the way the author turnded a professional decent woman into a confusing hormonal mess... She was never late at work, but for the first surge

This is by far my favorite book from R.S. Grey.I devour it in one sitting.Everything about Hot shot Doc was perfect.The plot and the characters rocked this story.


I loved Bailey, she is a fantastic heroine.She is strong and funny.Matt is a little bit jerk but I loved him.Once you know him better he is swoon worthy.


I'm going to say it again and again, R.S. Greg is a fantastic author, her writing is flawless and her stories brilliant.


I have been unlucky with her books this year. I'm not that into rom-com and she is famous for it. So color me surprised when I picked up HOTSHOT DOC and really enjoyed it.

But it shouldn't come as a surprise, because HOTSHOT DOC wasn't a real rom-com. It had some witty dialogues and Bailey and her sister's back and forth was certainly hilarious, but the comedic aspect didn't take over. Which made all the difference to me. And boy am I glad, because I love the office/boss trope and HOTSHOT DOC fit

R.S GREY HAS DONE IT AGAIN!!! She’s written an incredibly charming, sweet, and funny romance that gives you all the feels and makes you so freaking happy. I DEVOURED Hotshot Doc and can’t stop thinking about it. Definitely one of my most favorites! Soooooooooo sooooo good.

I thought this was an adorable story and found it very enjoyable. I liked both characters a lot and I thought with Matt that there was good character development. I did want to see a little more of him and Bailey together as a couple though. They had amazing sexual chemistry, which was great, but after about 50% of the book I think I just wanted to see how that chemistry would turn into a romance. Overall, a fun read and one I recommend.

I was honestly nervous about this one since R. S. Grey’s last release was shockingly a DNF, which was totally on me. I am a big fan of this author, so I shouldn’t have been surprised when I ended up loving this one. Once again, the author pulled me into the story from the very beginning and I couldn’t read fast enough.

She’s an auto-buy author for me.

I enjoyed this book a lot! I wish we had gotten more intimate details on the hardships both of these characters faced, but other than that, the characters and the writing was as charming as always.
Happy book birthday!!
R.S. Grey’s delivers another charming, sparkling and emotional involving contemporary romance with the tale of arrogant, cold-blooded, yet brilliant surgeon Dr. Russell and smart, strong, surgical assistant who’s about to tilt his world on its axis.

Wow! Just wow! This was seriously one of the most fun books I've read this year! Once I started I just could not put it down and I enjoyed every single page.

Dr. Matthew Russell aka Hotty McHotpants is ALL MINE! Yes I'm absolutely claiming him! He is a pediatric spinal surgeon, the top of his field and a god in the O.R. The only problem is that he is a bit of an asshole, he's not afraid to make people cry and he is definitely not getting any Mr Sensitive awards. His surgical assistants don't las

Not bad but nothing extraordinary.

We are introduced to the h, who has no social life or love life as she sacrificed everything for her young sis. She is basically living a single mom life. Her young sis is obviously too eager for her to date and have a life. So here we have a sister (yes for a change we have a sister instead of a horny friend) who desperately wants the h to date and makes her wear uncomfortable clothes.

Ooooh my sweet baby Jesus, I have NO WORDS for how much I loved this book. I can't get over it. I'm over the moon in OBSESSIVE, RIDICULOUS, UNRELENTING LOVE with Hotshot Doc. I was in such a reading rut; it was taking me weeks to read books that should've taken a day or two. I was struggling to find a book that would just BLOW. ME. AWAY. 

And then ENTER RS GREY...

I’ll get straight to the point.

R.S.Grey hasn’t impressed me in a LONG time. Like a hella long time. I read two GREAT books of hers and then everything she produced after that was ratchet. But yeah, suffice to say, I’m happy!

Job well done.


More push from the heroine because of the nature of their job, and later on surrounding the conflict in the book regarding him moving.

Pros of this book
- straight from the get go, I loved having a capable heroine with a great job. That appeals to me a lot

I really enjoyed this story, from first to last (though it has some minor problems). Bailey drew me in immediately and that was enough engagement to begin with. Matt was a tougher sell because his reputation was so awful and we see his impatience. It didn't take long to see that a lot of his reputation was built from reactions against his exacting standards and I kind of liked that he consistently demands the best from his team. Yeah, it sucks when he tells Bailey that he doesn't want to be her ...more

A slow burn romance that’s so good, so heartfelt and so believable; I can’t recommend this book enough. R.S. Grey is such a great author when it comes to romantic comedies; she just knows so well what makes a romance enjoyable and swoon-worthy. She doesn’t dwell much on drama or angst, she gives the space to the characters to develop their feelings naturally and she makes us root for them from the bottom of our hearts because she writes

This book should have the subtitle: Do not read in public. Uncontrolled bursts of laughter guaranteed!

Our heroes both work in the hospital. They are not really colleague, but the situation makes them work together. 

At first Dr. Russell doesn't make a good impression. He is grumpy and not very pleasant to be around. But behind the mask of a hard doctor, there is really a soft and warm heart.

Bailey is such a fanastic heroine. She's funny and outspoken. You will like her from the first moment. She

“I think to myself that he could be such a heartbreaker at the exact moment he snaps an order at the device rep. Oh right, that isn’t a Casanova standing across from me; it’s Dr. Beep Boop Robot. I’m not even sure there’s a heart beating beneath those scrubs.”

It’s next to impossible to not fall head over heels IN LOVE with R.S. Grey’s writing. She brings her characters to life like no other and I can’t help but to express my pure giddiness to anyone that will pay attention to me. From beginning to end and every place in between, Grey brought hope, hilarity, and heart into my very being with Matt and Bailey’s love story.

More often than not I tend to end up hating RS Grey books (the sole exception being Anything You Can Do) but this one was quite decent so I’m assuming it’ll be a hit for you if you’re one of her fans...

Time after time, R.S. Grey proves why she’s one of my favorite authors. Not only does her writing get better with each book, but she was also able to stay true to her hilarious style while tugging on my heartstrings with Hotshot Doc. I sound like a broken record when it comes to my reviews for her books but R.S. Grey really is the Queen of ROM-COM. Her books are perfectly geared toward her readers’ tastes, without ever being silly. The humor is infused into th
