Summary

It's just a docuseries about your career as an OB/GYN, they said. It won't interrupt your life during or after filming, they said. It's a great opportunity for the hospital and your practice, they said.

Well, they - the television executives who seem intent on ruining my career and personal life with a fair number of creative liberties - lied. Now I'm stuck dealing with the consequences of believing them. Instead of being known as Dr. Will Cummings, head of obstetrics and gynecology at St. Luke's Hospital, I'm now being called Dr. Obscene.

What devotion I'd hoped to earn in respect, I've instead received in patients flashing me seductive smiles and flirtatious winks during their exams.

How's a guy supposed to convince the most perfect woman he's ever met that he's not as much of an idiot in real life as he appears to be on camera?

Contains mature themes.

Enjoyable Read

Although this book is not my regular selection / genre of reading, I did find this book entertaining. It had me gasping and chuckling throughout. Nice easy listening.

Great book, poor narration

I really enjoyed this book. The characters were great and it was great to see the Billionaires back from Max Monroe's previous series!. The narration let this down though. The male narrator was great at male voices but terrible at women's voices. The women all sounded like pathetic caricatures. It was a real shame cause he made Will sound like a real hunk.

A LOL SWEET ROM/COM DOCUDRAMA

Well what you get with this first book in the successful writing duo's new docuseries are great characters, lol humor, easy-flowing quick-witted banter, good secondary characters, some quirky very open-minded parents, sizzling instant chemistry, sexy times, a hot and very sweet Dr. hero and a competent Nurse heroine. What you won't get is a down-to-earth believable storyline with lots of rollercoaster drama intrigue and suspense.. and, at the moment, I'm 100% happy with that.

Successful OB/GYN Dr. Will Cummings didn't know what he was getting himself into when he agreed to do the tv reality show.. but, as soon as it started to air, Will came face-to-face with the impact and damage selective editing/splicing brought. Because it'd instantly brought him fame alright.. the wrong sort of fame.. fame for his sex appeal, his smouldering winks at women, his many flirtations with females and his 'behind closed doors' antics. Now there are whispers and giggles from his staff and fangirl patients who can't wait to have the hot doctor between their all too willing thighs. However things are about to change for the good doctor because his new nurse hasn't seen the show, hasn't met him yet and hasn't labelled him Dr. Obscene.

Twenty nine year old OB/GYN nurse Melody Marco had left her job and her ex and is now back living with her way too open-minded parents in NYC.. and it was her interfering good-willed mother who'd set up an interview for a nursing job that would change Melody's life and rock her world. Because, from the moment she is introduced to her new boss, the sparks between them fly and her libido is all too willing to act on their attraction.. but Melody manages to temporarily ignore it and tries to remain professional.. until the very compident compelling sexy doctor finally asks her out.

A very entertaining rom/com with a nice level of heat to heart and this writing duo certainly know how to inject humor into their scenes which all flowed well as Will and Melody got to know each other personally, professionally and sexually. But the angst came when Melody started to watch the much gossiped about show.. and (in her 'damaged before' mindset) the last eye-opening episode was the one that drove a stake right through her shattered heart. Can the distraught doctor alone mend a broken heart.. or will Will need a bit of help? Dual POV's and narration didn't totally suck.. but unfortunately Alexander Cendese can't do female voices well - in fact they were almost cartoonish.

Worth a credit? Yes.. even with its iffy narration, this book made a long commute go by in a fun filled flash.

I laughed so hard

1st I will focus on the upside of the book. It is so darn funny that I looked like a fool with my earbuds in and laughing to tears. The awkward in this book was hilarious.

Then there is the male narrator. He butchers the female voices. But the book is so good that I was able to over look the terrible version of his female voice. As just the male voices narrated, it was great. The female narrator nailed it.
WORTH THE CREDIT!!

Want to SMACK male narrator!

Love the story! Writing is great! Male narrator=bad female voice.. it's cartoon bad. Just speak softer/quieter. No need to lisp and shout, with what I assume is a puckered face.

SURPRISED BY ALL THE GREAT REVIEWS

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

If it was on sale it may be worth it but I really did not enjoy this at all. I thought is was "just ok"

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The male character initially talks about how he is so misrepresented, but that is not really true. I thought the female lead got mad over something that could have easily been talked out. Both narrators did fine with their own voice but they were both EARSPLITTINGLY AWFUL when they voiced the opposite sex.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

No

Any additional comments?

There are way better options out there than this. All the other reviews talked of the humor... I thought it was pretty childish.

Funniest I've listened to in a while...

I would have loved it more if the story line was a bit more realistic... That being said this was funny, sweet and entertaining.

funny and heartfelt

really liked this book. had been hoping it would be on audible and was so excited when it finally was. I read the reviews the male narrator had a terrible female voice. I thought to myself "oh it can't be that bad." then I heard the female voice and cringed knowing I'd have to get over it if I'm going to endure it for 8 hours. his voice is fine otherwise. female narrator I liked a lot.

if you can overlook that, it is an enjoyable book. funny and heartfelt. if you read the summary then you know what it's about and should just read or listen to it. can't wait for the next book in the series that will have a different narrator, thankfully.

Geez, I needed that…

I started the audio of Dr. OB at the right time on a perfect day in the best possible week. This week has been a bloody SHOCKER!! Everything has gone wrong. Things practically exploded in my face, my boys' schedule was sending me to an early grave and PEOPLE were annoying me. I wish PEOPLE would stop annoying me. Anyways, at my breaking point, with a croak in my throat from holding back the tears, I started my adventure with Dr. Obscene.

The tears came, alright, but they were tears of mirth. I needed this obscene, crass and hilarious story.

It was the weirdest thing, with every bad thing that happened this week, for a little while, I was able to escape into the romantic world of obstetrics. I hear you scoff. Obstetrics??? Romantic??? Well, maybe not romantic but definitely sexy. Oh boy, does that sound bad? Ok, yes, I know that sounds bad and it is kind of bad, but it was also really good. It was all about what Dr OB could bring to the stirrups (wink, wink). Sorry, I couldn’t help myself, this story left my mind in the gutter.

Look, I can see you’re all squirming in your seats thinking about an Obstetrician in a sexy way. I guess, in some way, I can separate it from my reality. See, my Obstetrician/Gynaecologist wears a bow tie and there is NO WAY I would ever, Ever, EVER be thinking of this story when I go for my next ob/gyn visit. Poor male ob/gyn doctors, they need their own HEA too. They can’t help that they look at vaginas all day. We need to be more sympathetic. At least they “get” things better than the average joe and are a wee bit more sympathetic to what a girl suffers (hand to my forehead, woe is me).

I think the narrators do a fabulous job in this one. Yes, I still have a wee problem with blokes trying to do a female character, but, I could look past it because he does one hell of a sexy male character. Both narrators were easy to listen to and I had no problems understanding them or being able to tell when the characters changed. Top marks to the narrators.

I wouldn’t say this was an easy storyline to love. Unfortunately, our dear Dr Will has been around the hospital a time or two (wink, wink, nudge, nudge). He’s paying for his past indiscretions by having his reputation and dedication questioned. When he finally finds a woman who he wants to have a serious relationship with, she’s seeing him in a very obscene way in the worst possible light.

If you don’t take it too seriously and are the kind of person who believes a leopard can change his spots, Dr OB on audio might be perfect for you.

Warning: Listening to the audio of Dr. OB in public may cause extreme embarrassment. You may suffer uncontrollable snorts of laughter, body-shaking spasms of glee and face contortions from trying to hold back smirks and smiles. It is advised that a private, sound-proofed room is found to enjoy the full benefits of this audio.

Below Par

I was disappointed with the lame dialog and the narrators. The male narrator's female voice was poor and the female narrator's male voice was poor.

Loved the story

Loved the story and at first was annoyed with the reading being a huge fan of Sebastian York’s voice. Then I was pleasantly surprised that AC gave me a whole different vision of what Will looked like in my head. I know, weird but true. Lol
