Playing Doctor by Kate Allure


3/5 stars.
ARC, e-book, 256 pages.
Read from December 18 to 26, 2014.

I’d like to thank Becca from Sourcebooks Casablanca and Netgalley for allowing me to read an advanced reader’s copy of this book! Publication date: January 6, 2015.

This erotica novel contains 3 short stories with a doctor-theme. Whether the main character is a doctor or the love interest is one, if you fantasize about anything to do with doctors, you might want to pick this book up.

The first story, I would say is by far the most romantic and, well different. Dr. Lauren Marks is in her mid-thirties and has just recently found herself divorced after her husband left without a goodbye one morning. The story revolves around her decisions to start living life for herself, and of course a hot new intern who happens to be way too young for her.  This story had the most character development in it and for once, I didn’t mind. The sex scenes weren’t stellar but Dr. Lauren’s character was ultimately what drew me into this story. She is smart, strong and independent and she makes some awesome decisions in this story in regards to her ex-husband and with her hot new intern.

The second story follows Valerie, who has recently required surgery on her ankle and happens to be hot for her surgeon. The downfall, she is married and loves her husband. However, her husband owes her a big favor and she decides to try to get permission from both men to join up for some threesome action. This story has the best sex scenes in it, by far! This story, for me, seemed to have found the perfect balance between character and the sex plot. I knew just enough about the characters to get involved in their story and then the rest was allllll sex!

The final story in this book related to someone my own age, which was nice for a change, which must mean I’m getting old! Nikki is in her mid-twenties and has just recently suffered a break-up, but her awesome friends force her out for a night on the town. At the bar, Nikki hits it off with a really good-looking guy named Hunter and unfortunately the night goes sour later on thanks to his friends so she never gets his digits. While she continued to think about the Hunter she never expected to see him again. However, while going in for her annual check-ups Nikki finds herself in an uncomfortable situation when Hunter shows up in the exam room as her doctor. I cared for this story the least, despite being closer in age to Nikki; the sex scenes were okay and it just got all too mushy and unrealistically romantic for me at the end.

Overall a decent erotica read with a nice mix of scenarios!
