We know Alex and Nate from the impressive story Invisible Ink Paint #3. If you’ve read it then you know how fragile Alex is, how he used to deal with anxiety. He is stronger and that requires strength. Strength and help coming from Nate his now lover and former doctor. Nate understands him thoroughly.
Only now, with the approaching trial of Alex’s father, Alex has it bad. He wants to cut, wants to let pain take over his anxiety. Watching porn, to take off his thoughts, he runs into a good and pai

First I need to say I don’t like medical kink. Not only that, but it is something that would keep me away from a book. Even then, I decided to read this short story because I was intrigued. I wasn’t completely able to enjoy the medical procedures involved in it, but I did loved the story.

What I liked about it was the lovely relationship between Nate and Alex. The story is set after Invisible Ink, Book 3 in the Paint series. I haven’t read any of those books yet, so it works fine as a standalone,

Emma Jaye at her usual finest in this short story

Young artist, Alex, is brooding in his boyfriend’s flat while gorgeous Nate is at work in the local ER as a doctor. On Alex’s horizon is the trial of his father at which Alex will have to testify, and nothing seems to be distracting him which allows his anxiety to soar. With Nate’s help, he’d kicked a cocaine habit and the self-destructive cutting, but he needed an outlet.

Turning to his computer, he finds kink with a medical fetish. Lucky for him,

This is a short story following Invisible Ink. This is more of a prelude to what will happen in the next book, or at least I hope it is. That is my opinion anyway. This was a good short story between the last book and the next book and it definitely made me want the next book in this series even more. I fell in love with Alex and Nate in Invisible Ink and having this short story made me love them even more!! Emma Jaye knows how to draw the reader in that is for sure. I have read several of Emma’ ...more

"A Raw, Emotional, Beautiful Read"   

I loved this beautiful, sizzling, gripping, seemingly all-too-brief-of-a-story; a story filled with a dusting of the existence of such raw emotional heartache and deprivation, one that elicits such a desperate need for such heavy escapism.  Through multiple forms of attempted survival, an equally heartbreaking kind of connection with peace slowly blossoms into an overall sense of needed tranquility.  As this peace is shakily discovered, the yearning for pe

Medical kink is so hard to find, so when I read this book is about this kink, I started to read it inmediately!
And then I was confused.
Because I loved it, but I knew the story. I knew what I was reading and what was happening next. I couldn't decide if I was having dejavu, or this book is a copy paste to some other what I've read earlier this year... and I was so angry with myself, so I started to spy LOL

So ladies and gentlemen, I did read this book earlier this year! And when? Remember the Co

4 Stars!

This short story can be perfectly read as a standalone, which is what I did, although it probably would be best if read in order.

I wasn't too sure what to expect, especially when I realized just how short this book was, still, Miss Jaye shared enough Alex and Nate's backstory and their relationship as to not feel lost and it dealt with difficult themes in a sensitive manner. Alex and Nate were great together and I loved that Alex was willing to do whatever it took to help Alex out.

I really enjoyed the story of Nate and Alex!! Alex has had a troubled past and suffering from anxiety over his dad's upcoming trial. Nate is the hot doctor Alex met while being treated at the hospital. Nate stopped being Alex's doctor so they could date and now they live together.
This book shows the struggles a person goes through while suffering from drug addiction and other mental health issues. Alex has a great partner and support system with Nate. This story was amazing in the fact of showi

I didn't realize how much I missed these guys 🥰

Alex is still finding his self - seeking that healthy coping mechanism that will ease the ache while lessening the anxiety

Alex being...well Alex - decides to try what he sees- no permemant harm right? Just what the doctor ordered.
And Why not? They did it and all was well?

Hindsight and all that..
Enter Nate the lover, the caregiver and the port to Alex's storm.

Okay at this point I was maybe shedding a few tears

I love these two they are so perfect for

A seriously hot read tempered by love. Alex and Dr. Nate were great together. Nate knowing what Alex needed and giving it to him. Alex making himself vulnerable enough to put his trust in Nate to give him what he needs. A beautiful culmination.

Aww, I just adore Emma Jaye's Paint series. Doctor's Orders, book 3.5 in the series, is a short, hot read.

This is the story of Alex and Nate. Alex is suffering from major anxiety about his father's upcoming trial. After already getting help from Nate to kick his drug habit and his addiction of cutting, now Alex needs to find a new outlet for his current anxiety.

Their story includes the use of pain for sexual pleasure, especially sounds. It's hot, and oh yeah, hot.

The author does a wonderful job

Wow! This book was amazing. This was a short story, steamy and kinky story. I loved the characters, Alex and Nate, and their love for each other. I really enjoyed this story and highly recommend it.

Emma Jaye continues to lay down the kink in Doctor's Orders. She exposes Alex's vulnerable side with the upcoming trial while Alex learns a new way of coping. Alex unintentionally shares this new fetish with Nate and a whole lot of fun ensues. This novella was fun to read and picks up right as though we are part of the family again. I highly recommend Doctor's Orders for anyone interested in kink; this is definitely a five star for me!

I enjoyed reading this book. Even though this series is new to me, I felt like there was no issue reading this short story as a stand alone; however, the book actually intrigued me that I am also reading book 1 of this series so I can start from the beginning and enjoy some delicious Bacon on this ride lol. The info in the book sparked my interest that I wanted to see the growth of the characters and learn more about their backstory. This book is definitely worth checking out.

Oh my goodness, if you like medical kink this book is definitely for you. It was wonderful to catch up with Nate and Alex again and to see them truly let go was amazing. As for Chris and Jase their appearance is worth every second. I’m in love with these characters and the writing makes it all the sweeter.

I love Nate and Alex. Hot steamy scenes mixed with humor and the inner battle Alex faces make this a perfect story to explore some medical kink. Another fantastic addition to the paint series.

This short story is a m/m romance. I liked this book and really liked Nate. He is beyond kind and caring. He would move the world for Alex if it made Alex happy. Nate is a little older than Alex and is a doctor. Alex is a recovering addict with plenty of demons.

I’m new to Emma Jaye and found this story very sweet and at times quite hot. It was the perfect length to show one couple’s love.

Alex’s secret medical kink comes to light in this quick and dirty novella by Emma Jaye from her Paint Series, which I loved. With Alex’s stress levels rising, Nate finally gives Alex something he needs, which ends up drawing Nate and Alex even closer than before. Chris and Jace also make an appearance in this one and man oh man, I just absolutely love Chris! Even though medical kink isn’t necessarily my thing, I could not pass up the opportunity to get more of Alex and Nate. If you’re a fan of t ...more

I cannot believe I’m rating a novella 5 but I am. Did not want this one to end where it did. Short, kinky and the Bacconi crew, impossible not to!

And steamy AF!
I absolutely love watching how Alex and Nate fuse together into a solid couple. The trust-building is amazingly done, so the personal growth of the characters. Seeing glimpses of Chris brought additional light to this bonus scene.
Patiently waiting for the next book.

WOW! For a short m/m story this one is sure kinky. It really opened my eyes to the idea of medical fetishes. I really had no idea! This one is definitely interesting and intense.

I loved the characters and the love that they have for each other. They have trust and compassion through the darkness. They are lovable and very relatable.

Fantastic writing with amazing characters in a very kinky and steamy story.

I LOVE this story!! This is a review of Doctor's Orders by Emma Jaye. This is a short story in the Paint series featuring Dr. Nate Cooper and a beautiful boy, Alex. Dr. Nate has been working a lot of hours and plans with Alex have to be cancelled. While Nate is working, Alex is home alone with too much time on his hands, but he's trying not to resort to his old habits of drugs or cutting. He finds something to keep him occupied, but ends up with a problem. No spoilers, but Dr. Nate has a very se ...more
