I’m Dr. Nick Raines.
Brain surgeon and notorious over-thinker, I take the analytical approach with everything, until I can determine the best, carefully calculated plan of action. It’s no shock the producers of the popular reality series The Doctor Is In have decided to call me Dr. Neurotic.
Besides my more than full-time job as Chief of Neurosurgery at St. Luke’s Hospital, I’m a single dad and my number one priority is my daughter.
But life had plans to add another priority to my list.
Charlotte Hollis. Outspoken, impulsive, and beautiful, she’s everything I didn’t know I was craving.
She makes me wonder What if?
What if I don’t have to be alone for the rest of my life to give my little girl the father she deserves?
It's a battle—my battle: Head vs. Heart.
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.
Dr. Neuro is an adorable, hilarious and light romantic comedy filled with fun trivia nights, spontaneous dates and sizzling sexual tension between a swoon-worthy hero and a fun and lovable heroine.
St. Luke’s Docuseries concludes with the last standalone, Dr. Neuro. Dr. Nick Raines, the Chief of Neurosurgery at St. Luke’s hospital, is happily settled in New York to be with his 10-year old daughter, Lexi. He’s making up for the time he wasn’t there for Lexi (and her mother, Winnie) when he left New York for a better opportunity in the West Coast. He’s finally making progress in repairing his relationship with his daughter, and he will do everything to make sure nothing ruins it.
So when headhunter Charlotte Hollis pays him a visit to offer him a job in a hospital in California—an offer that would make anyone see stars—Nick says no. It was an easy decision, too. He thinks his clear and blatant no would end all contact with the pretty blonde, but instead, he finds himself becoming her partner for trivia night at Cornerstone Tavern.
Sometimes, things that go too smoothly don’t stay that way forever. Just when Charlotte and Nick’s relationship is becoming more serious, there’s a possibility everything Nick worked hard for will be ruined if people in his life find out about Charlotte. Now, the decision to let her go was a no-brainer, yet it was the hardest he’s ever done.
For me, this couple was the most adorable of the three! The start of their relationship was fun and so effortless, mostly thanks to Charlotte’s bubbly personality and spontaneity. They have this kind of banter that makes you grin and an equally strong chemistry that sizzles throughout the story.
Charlotte is a breath of fresh air! Unfiltered in every way—her words, thoughts, even in bed. She never holds back. What you see is what you get from her, yet she never fails to surprise Nick. She’s exactly what he needs.
“Life without Charlotte didn’t feel less colorful; it felt dead.”
Nick is reliable and consistent. I love him! A gentleman and a wonderful father to Lexi, an equally wonderful little girl. He made mistakes in the past, but he’s trying his best to become a better man. To be honest, I related more to him—a person who’s gotten used to habits and is weary to do things outside the usual—than Charlotte.
If you’ve read Max Monroe’s other books, specifically the Billionaire Bad Boys series, you’re probably not a fan of Nick. Personally, I haven’t read the series, but I believe Nick redeemed himself quite wonderfully. There are a few familiar faces here, Winnie and Wes specifically. There’s also Winnie’s brother, Remy, a guy I want to read more about.
The book had a few drama that was settled easily, so most of the story is light. Dr. Neuro is a feel-good book that will make you laugh, sigh, and maybe even tear up.
P.S. Nick is mine. (I mean, I guess we can share.)
