Dr. Easton is part man, part myth.
He’s a formidable surgeon. Highly respected in his field.
He also happens to be an ex-collegiate quarterback with a classically handsome face.
Are you catching on yet?
A walking Ralph Lauren ad.
He’s also so off limits he should come with a warning label: This way lies heartache.
Not only is he an attending at the hospital where I’m training, he’s also my brother’s best friend. If you’ve lost count, that’s two reasons why I plan on putting this ridiculous crush behind me. Besides, it’s definitely not mutual.
Dr. Easton has never once paid me special attention. No tempting smirks. Not even one subtle innuendo. To him, I’m just another resident—all but invisible.
For the last five years, I’ve mentored Natalie in the OR, stayed in line, and kept my hands to myself, but it’s been agonizing.
Natalie is trouble in scrubs. A walking temptation I’ve been forced to ignore.
For so long, I’ve wanted her in silence. By the time fate finally gets around to throwing me a bone, my patience has run out.
Natalie’s brother is leaving town, and he wants me to watch over her while he’s gone.
He has no idea how I feel about her.
Neither does she.
But she will.
Haven’t you heard good things come to those who wait, Natalie?
Well… I’ve done my waiting.

In Review: My Thoughts
Doctor Dearest is more proof that R.S. Grey can do no wrong in my eyes. (Not that I needed it, you understand.) Rachel is one of my rom-com go-to’s. She never lets me down.
Reading Doctor Dearest was basically like watching Grey’s Anatomy. But, you know, without all the heartbreak and drama for the sake of drama. (I say this as a former die-hard Grey’s fan.) Natalie and Connor’s brother’s best friend romance ticked all my boxes. They were so fun and swoony. I loved that there wasn’t a lot of time wasted with the two of them. It seemed like there was a smidge of unrequited love early on, but it didn’t take long to move past that. These two had oodles of chemistry and I couldn’t get enough of them.
Both Natalie and Conner were fantastic characters. I appreciated her strength and “I don’t need a man” attitude. Except, you know, she clearly *wanted* Connor. And really, who can blame her? He was hot, smart and driven. And her brother’s best friend. It’s like catnip for me. There are definitely some challenges thrown their way, but I loved how they navigated everything. If you’re looking for a rom-com to make you giggle and give you some feels, look no further. This is the one you need in your life.
“This isn’t punishment, Natalie. This is foreplay.”
