Never Date a Doctor
by Melanie A. Smith
Publication date: February 25th 2020
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Rating: 4/5 stars

From best-selling author Melanie A. Smith comes the first book in a new series of steamy contemporary medical romance standalone novels about life lessons that break all the rules.

What’s the first rule of nurse’s club? That’s right: Never date a doctor. Which Sasha Suvorin has no intention of doing anyway, since she’s a nurse at Rutherford Hospital by day and working on her master’s degree by night. Who has time for dating, much less dating someone you work with? Bad idea much?

That is, until the sexy British Dr. Caleb Thompson starts at her hospital. It also doesn’t help that he’s exactly her type with his dark hair, blue eyes, and rockin’ bod. Or that he’s not your typical arrogant and bossy surgeon. But Sasha isn’t so easily convinced, and she soon discovers Dr. Hottie has a past that puts a stop to whatever she might have been feeling before anything ever starts between them.

Unfortunately, working together means facing temptation. Every. Single. Day. Is Sasha strong enough to resist what might just be the perfect man? And if she gives in, will Cal’s past stay in the past? Sasha may be used to playing it safe, but life has a way of teaching its lessons … one way or another.

“A tug in my chest. Like the world dropped away, and it was just us. Like the universe went quiet so I could hear the pounding of my heart. Feel the connection between us like it was a living thing.”

This was my first book by this author and I was not disappointed. It was really well written with enough angst and romance. I adored this book! I devoured it in one sitting.

The first rule of nursing is: Never date a doctor. Sasha has goals and doesn’t let anyone or anything deter her. That is until Dr. Hotness is the newest doctor in her department. The sparks between Cal and Sasha we’re flying from the very first meeting, the chemistry between the two was off the charts!

Sasha is a cardio thoracic nurse who is in school to get her masters. She has enough on her plate without any unwanted drama so she keeps to herself. That all changes the day Dr. Caleb Thompson enters her floor. He is her type to the letter and as much as she tries to fight his advances and her growing feelings towards him the magnetic pull is too much.

This book has the perfect amount of friendship, chemistry, drama and love. Looking forward to reading more from this author! I highly recommend this one!
