ARC Review: Dangerous by Patricia Rosemoor

Format: eARC

Review: 3 Stars

    It was a good story but not something that grabbed my attention, at least not in the beggining. Once the story took off it was good. There were some parts a bit predictable (Huerta and Angel, the attempt escapt, and Drago finding them) but there were redeeming qualities too ( I did thought she was going to get fired and I was sure Angel would take her).

     I liked that the story focused on the characters but also that it gave some airtime for other plausible stories (I wouldn't mind a story about Eva or Justus or Jackson). Another thing that I liked was the fact that it had more than the MCs POVs.

     I would have liked to give this story more stars but as I said the beggining was a bit slow and it took me I while to warm up to the story. But if there is another book I wouldn't hesitate to read it.

The Intern
Rating: 4 Stars

     This is some hot read in here. We have Lauren, a middle age woman who was abandoned by her husband and struggle to keep her practice opened and was succesful when she was able to partner with another doctor and share the financial burden. She is feeling lonely and in need of a stress reliever. When a colleague asks her to help with an intern she agrees without knowing that Courney is really Court and that he will awaken in her a long denied desire.

     It was really fun to see this older woman try to hide her attraction to one of her employees. It was also fun how they tried to best each other when it came to make the other lustful. That scene of the exam room? Loved it! The only thing I didn`t like was that it was a HFN ending and that it as 1st person POV. I would really like to read more about Lauren, sppecially after that ending.

My Doctor, My Husband, and Me
Rating: 3 Stars

     In this story we have a forty four year old married woman, who after nineteen years of been with the same man, is attracted to a man several years her junior. But what really attracts her attention is that in every fantasy her husband is there. And so after gathering up her courage Valerie proposes to Luka, her surgeon, and Elliot, her husband, to a menage.

     It was really interesting to see how this woman past her youthful years deals with this new facet to her life. How she is afraid of hurting her husband even when he was unfaithful to her at one time. Valerie is also dealing with the fact that she is an older woman that might not be atractive enough for a young man like Luka.

     I just would have like for the story to have more depth. The story consentrated to just the encounters of the threesome but didn't give any more background info of the characters. But overall it was a good story.

Sieze the Doctor
Rating: 5 Stars

     I really enjoy this story. It made me laugh and it kind of reminded me of myself. That shy, introverted, awkward girl that is afrair of trying more bold, out-of-the-box things that might get her noticed. But unlike me, she did get over it and tried hard to be a completely diferent person.

     I did tought their love came a little to qiuckly but it's more the fact that there was not much day-to-day details. The story skipped weeks at a time so the main characters could be together.

     The story came full circle with the characters beeing in the GYN patient room. And that last encounter? Oh, it sudendly hot in here! Again it was a great story but I would have liked it to be longer with moe depth into the characters lives.

Book Description:

     The doctor will see you now...
     Three sizzling-hot erotic romance stories to stoke your mood

     In The Intern, the temperature of Dr. Lauren Marks’s office quickly rises when her new medical intern Courtney turns out to be a passionate and sexy young man.

     Valerie realizes all of her fantasies when her sexy surgeon and her loving husband team up to offer her some extra-special treatment in My Doctor, My Husband, and Me.

     Nikki gets more than she bargained for in Seize the Doctor when the hot guy she recently met at a bar walks into her exam room wearing a white coat. Good thing she wore her sexiest lingerie.

     Today on The Doctor Is In we get to meet three hunky physicians from Kate Allure’s soon to be released [or just released] erotic romance anthology Playing Doctor—because the only thing sexier than one Alpha doctor is three!

     In Playing Doctor, you'll meet young, blond, and movie-star handsome Courtney Sinclair in the summer romance “The Intern.” Next is the spicy ménage “My Doctor, My Husband, and Me,” with Luka Czerny—a surgeon with thick lustrous black hair, just the hint of a sexy foreign accent, and a bedside manner like warm honey. And then there is Hunter Sterling—think Greek god gorgeous but with a friendly boy-next-door personality—who finds true love in “Seize the Doctor.” Where else but in Playing Doctor can you take three sexy doctors to bed with you?

     Until then, get to know them in our interview series, The Doctor Is In, where today we ask: What are your thoughts on bondage? A playful way to spice up sex or is it a no-go for you?

     Dr. Hunter Sterling: I…umm. Can you repeat the question?...Umm…bondage? I’ve threatened, jokingly, to restrain Nikki, but I’ve never actually tried that. I guess I’d like to, and I think she might be open to it. I enjoy, umm…“playing doctor” with her, you know examining her and teasing her. Perhaps restraining and using a blindfold might heighten the experience, but I would never do something that she didn’t want. It would never be true bondage—just fun play.

     Court Sinclair: I haven’t really tried that either. I mostly like to give verbal direction. I get so lost in the moment, lost in the woman…Lauren…that I find myself becoming quite...controlling and dominant, but with words. Telling her what to do and how I want it. And you’d be surprised how pliant a woman can become with the right encouragement. Mmmm, I think that’s all I’m going to say about that.

     Dr. Luka Czerny: We’ve tried bondage just a little, in a playful way, and I won’t mince words, I liked it a lot. If you aren’t already aware, I’m in a ménage a trois relationship…they’re a married couple where I serve as Valerie’s third. But one night, Elliot and I turned the tables and put a collar on Valerie, telling her she was going to be our sex slave for the evening. Later we tied her to the bed. So that night, she was the one…serving us. Yes, I definitely liked it.

Excerpt from – “Seize the Doctor” 

     At the door to her apartment building, they lingered and talked more while holding hands and looking into each other’s eyes. Hunter gently caressed her hand, making small swirling circles with his thumb on the soft pad of her palm. Nikki seemed as aroused as he was, her eyes dilated and her breath coming in short little pants. He very much wanted to kiss her and hoped she would let him. Nikki swayed toward him, and his arm came around to support the small of her back, gently pulling her against his body.

     “May I kiss you good night?” he asked in a low, husky voice.

     “Mmm, yes,” she replied, melting into him and tilting her face upward.

     His heart pounding, Hunter slowly lowered his mouth to meet hers, just the gentlest sweeping touch on her lips. His breath caught in his throat as he stood wanting and needing more. Deepening the kiss, Hunter crushed her tightly to him and stroked her lips with his tongue. He was burning with desire and wondered for perhaps the hundredth time this evening if she was wearing those so-sexy underthings. Oh, how he would love to see them on her, to slowly peel them off her body and explore her with his tongue. Thinking that he was getting dangerously carried away, he started to pull back, but then Nikki parted her lips and welcomed his kiss into her mouth. Hunter pulled her even more tightly to him.

     He could taste Nikki now, the subtle flavor of her mixed with the tangy beer they had consumed with dinner. The press of her breasts to his chest, her peaked nipples pressing into him, sent a shooting thrill throughout his body. His hand ached to reach up and caress her there. Before he got carried away, Hunter started to release her, but Nikki reached up and put her arms around his neck, pulling him back to her and deepening the kiss.

     It felt so good, so hot. Hunter reveled in the sensations and the awareness that this gorgeous woman wanted him as much as he wanted her. His bulging erection pressed into her belly, and he could barely stop himself from rubbing it against her. Instead, he ended the kiss and stepped firmly away, feeling unstable, as if he might lose control and yank her back, and then nothing would be able to stop him from finishing what they were starting. He needed to get away quickly. He didn’t want to ruin things now.

     “This was a terrific evening. Thank you,” Hunter said, turning away quickly, worried that Nikki might try to restart the kiss. Very much wanting her to do just that.

     “I enjoyed it too. Bye,” Nikki responded, still leaning toward him.

     “Thank you again. I’ll call you soon,” he said as he resolutely walked away.

     Hunter felt young and carefree…
