Quad Shot of Love

 

 

Blurb:  Whether they’re paramedics, nurses, therapists, doctors, or even actors who play them on TV, the men in the medical profession must contend with job stress and long hours that can make finding love a challenge. These dedicated professionals aid patients from the severely injured to those just needing some help with a bath, and along the way find creative ways to release some tension, reconnect with past partners, and even forge something that might last a lifetime.

Injuries, huge workloads, dedication to duty, self-doubt, and fear of coming out of the closet are only some of the obstacles standing in the way of the men committed to easing pain and those in need of treatment. But with hard work, some humor, some steamy on- and off-the-job trysts, plenty of patience, and open hearts, doctors and patients alike can find the healing they need, whether it comes from a lifelong commitment or a quickie in the staff room.

The men in this anthology are looking for relief, and they’re in luck—the doctor is in.

Review:  
I’m an anthology junkie. They are the perfect way for me to find new for me authors and read something fun in the time it takes for a dentist appointment. I thought the concept of this anthology was fun and couldn’t wait to dig in and find a few treasures.

I enjoyed quite a few of the stories in this anthology. It was a great addition to my collection. I appreciated the unique approaches the different authors took the theme of people in the medical field and created such diverse stories, excellent editing from Dreamspinner Press. There were patients, doctors, therapists,  and every other combination. Who doesn’t like a man in a lab coat?

Some of the highlights were:

S.C. Wynne’s Doctor in the Desert. About a cop and a doc. finding common ground, respect, and each other.

Bru Baker is always solid and Rx for Sex was no exception. Although not a funny read like some, it was incredibly full of emotion and was artfully written. I was lost from the first scene to the last. A beautiful story.

Iron man by Meg O’Brian was awesome and different. The story is about a blind man and his neighbors son. It was refreshing and new.

Right-hand Man by Rob Rosen was funny and sexy and completely impractical, but I laughed the entire time.

Pain Management was fantastic. A story about a man who suffers from terrible migraines and is going through pain management and part of that is massage. It was believable and well done.

Most of these stories are full of wit and and joy at new love. Some like Bru’s are about a love rekindled. All of them are worth a read.  A solid set of stories and I know you will find a new author for you to grab, just like I did.
