My life is ordinary, steady, predictable. And I’m okay with that. Working long shifts at the hospital is all the excitement I need.

But when a simple rescue-attempt goes wrong, I find myself in the arms of an arrogant, yet sexy FBI agent.

Kai Evans is what I’d call way out of my league. Yet, we end up dating. Sort of. That’s if you count fast-bike escapes and kissing while b

I read an early version of UTS back when it was in development and fell in love with Katerina's characters and fun, fast-paced story! The writing is sleek, as always with Katerina, the characters full of charm and life, and Taylor remains one of my fave male characters of all time. :D

Also, just to make you guys jealous, I already know what happens next!

“Under the Scrubs” by Katerina Baker

I received this book from Net Galley to review and I have not read any previous works by Katerina Baker to compare. Reading the description, I thought this could be a great book filled with action and well developed characters.

I was wrong.
I made it to chapter eight before I eventually gave up trying to be interested.

By chapter eight, I expected to have some connection to the main characters and some details as to the plot. I knew little to nothing about Kai

UNDER THE SCRUBS by Katerina Baker is more than a romance book. Not to say it is not spicy, titillating, and naughty, because it certainly is. Lovers of romance and erotica will not be let down. But the book is also a thriller, full of action and unexpected surprises.

The book starts with a young celebrity coming to the hospital to have her baby delivered by Dr. Hughes. The doctor, a responsible OB/GYN delivers the baby boy, but in an unexpected twist, she also names the baby. And what is this? S

Well, I wanted to like this more than I did. The relationship between Emilia and Kai felt forced - like they didn’t have a natural chemistry. The whole time I wanted to just yell at her “YOU DON’T KNOW THIS GUY, why are you doing that?!” The pacing felt really off to me, with most scenes feeling far too rushed. The first 40% of the novel isn’t as intriguing as it should be - I was tempted to DNF but kept going because it’s an ARC and I wanted to give it a chance. I didn’t hate it, but I certainl ...more

I received a copy of Under the Scrubs by Katerina Baker from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Overall, this novel missed the mark for me. I felt that the plot should have been interesting given the story's summary, but the plot wasn't evenly paced and it was just confusing as all get out. Since the author never clarified or unraveled the plot threads, it was not enjoyable and I struggled to finish the novel. Also, the main characters were kind of boring and weakly fle

Emilia Hughes is an OB/GYN who gets caught up in one bad situation after another. She's not trying to cause trouble, but she has that do-gooder heart where she needs to intervene and help. She's not really a tough girl, but she takes good care of people as a doctor and can cook like a dream. Kai Evans manages to sweep in a rescue her the first time and after that he begins to pursue her. They seemed like a cute couple at first, except Kai is rather tight lipped about anything personal about hims ...more

This book was a HOT MESS. Avoid at all costs.
I made it the whole way through, only because I committed to a review, but I still have absolutely no clue what happened.

The blurb and gorgeous cover drew me in and I couldn't wait to try out this new-to-me author. I'm very sad to say that I didn't like it.

Too many plot holes, the characters were very wishy-washy and the plot was a trainwreck. I made it to chapter 7 before I started skimming the book to the end.

I couldn't get over how much of an airhead the heroine was, especially when she is supposed to be educated enough to be a DOCTOR. The first couple of chapters just had some much going on and not enough "t

What a wild ride! I had a great time reading Under the Scrubs. The journey of watching tempered OB/GYN Emilia turn bad-ass adventure chick was a blast. Emilia is a great character - she's written with humor and charm, but still holds her own between two warring FBI agents (one-ex) as she's caught up in this roller coaster of intrigue and danger.

The story took me in directions I did not see coming. Fast-paced action and a really interesting array of characters. The romance with Kai is complex an

DNF @32%.

The blurb sounded awesome, but I don't feel like it's at all an accurate description of the actual story; at least not the first third. The narrator, Emilia, particularly bothers me. She's supposed to be an accomplished doctor, but she doesn't act like it! Kai is all over the place, and the only reason I know he's FBI is because of the blurb.

I rarely DNF, especially a book I agreed to review, but this story is inconsistent and not as expected, and Emilia annoys me too much to continue.

OMG! What a story that had me rapidly reading and I could not STOP! Poor Dr. Emilia Hughes just had the day of hell when she attempted to help a teenage girl who was on the very verge of giving birth and as an OB/GYN, she went into doctor mode automatically. What Emilia didn't know was her world was about to change! All five foot three, she had attempted to stop a robbery in a dark alley of a woman and a baby. She taught birthing classes at the YMCA, thinking herself a badass, she yelled at the ...more

First I want to thank you Xpresso and NetGalley to give me the opportunity to read and review this book. 

When I read the blurb I was immediately interested in getting my hands on this novel. The cover is also quite hot right?

The plot itself was good although I felt like there were holes they still needed stiches and the story would be totally amazing if there would be smooth switching between the scenes. Otherwise I am sure this new author needs to be given a chance as I truly like her thinking,

i really wanted to love this book. Especially with the blurb and the cover really catching my attention. Also a new to me author too but I just didn’t click with this story or characters which is an absolute shame. Really wanted this book to be amazing and I just couldn’t finish the book. Will try the author again if a book catches my attention but this one wasn’t for me. Hope it might be for other people thow.

The blurb for this book hooked me! I was intrigued! I was still hooked through about 30%.
Then I skipped around.
The story lost me.
I really think this story could be amazing with a little more work on it. Too much kept me thinking the main lady was an idiot. It was missing something.
I’d be willing to read this book again if it was updated.

Need a light romance as a palate cleanser after a too emotional read? This book works perfectly for that cause. There was potential in the beginning but I got disappointed by the main character's lack of backbone somewhere in the middle of the book.

A MUST READ!

This was my first read by this author and I wasn't dissapointed! Its the type of book that grabs your attention from the first page and doesn't let go even after the last page! Great book and will definitely go on my reread list!
Oh and just so its clear I'm team Tay NOT Kai!

The book is a good romantic suspense read. The story has a good story line. The characters are good, and they have good chemistry.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

I won’t rate this book because I didn’t finish. Got to chapter 8 and was still confused and, I admit, bored. It was all quite rushed and the characters weren’t thought out all that well. I couldn’t relate to any single one of them.

The storyline seemed a bit odd and off and I couldn’t get into grasps of what the hell was actually happening.

Not one I’d recommend. Usually, I’d persevere but on this occasion, it’s impossible.

This was a really good action packed read I picked it up to read a couple of chapters before bed and before I knew it it was the early hours and I had finished. I really enjoyed this book and I cannot wait to read more from Katerina in the future.

Although on some days she is much more successful at managing her life than on the others, she still claims that she doesn’t want it any other way.
