Read First: December 25-30, 2014 | Snuck from: Netgalley -- I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Three sizzling stories!
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.

Sweeeeet! You don't get stories with couples with such an age gap very often, I think. At least I'd like to find more (feel free to leave recommendations in the comments!!). I'm one of those people who believes that love has nothing to do with age and roots in a damn-it-all-to-hell fashion for that kind of thing. ^.^ Thus, this was awesome, even if it wasn't the all goey happily ever after, but rather about self-condifence and a sense of self-worth which is very important for everyone, men and women alike.
i can't say if I would have preferred them to stay together, long-distance, instead of the way it went, because Court and Lauren sure made a cute pair. Court sure knew how to handle her, boy... hot, so hot! And since their goals did seem to align, but... well, maybe the age difference would have eventually caught up with them. Lauren looking for something a little closer to home and age was logical and heartfelt, and you can't resent her for that.

My Doctor, my Husband, and Me
Not so sweet, and only for fans of menages and a bit sub/dom.
It was a hot story, no doubt, but the plot didn't grip me this time. That Valerie had the guts to go after what she wanted takes some serious character. That she didn't have an affair but had her husband jump in the boat with her, totally awesome. That he agreed to it -- even more amazing! But for a short story it was too much prelude, and then not enough emotional detail during the sexy parts.
The staring and sharing made this a very sizzling read, but I didn't like the sub/dom part. It was cool that the men turned the tables on her and the blindfold was... gosh! ... but it started out way too harsh. I think it's not a topic you can just squeeze in a few lines like that, it's way too delicate for that.

Seize the Doctor
Just as hot as the others, and definitvely the most romantic story of the three, I'd say this is my favorite. The head-over-heels time frame might feel ridiculous to some, but I guess just as many women dream it up like that. 😉 It even sported the false-positive cheating panic cliche! Not everyone's taste, I can do without it just fine, but it didn't make me roll my eyes. It fit the characters and the short time span, and it was totally worth it. Wicked man!
This story had the sexual as much as the sensual, the playing and sex talk, although it felt a bit stiff and forced for a few moments here and there. A hot start with an even hotter ending, the middle part was more about the romance, so it was the perfect smut short story.
