Being the best in her field doesn't seem to help famously successful sex therapist, Dr. Regina Logan, who manages to fix everyone’s love life but her own. Men won't date her. Her brutal honesty about physical matters intimidates most males. It also doesn’t help her love life that the press publishes every dating move she makes. Though she knows her negative publicity is the biggest problem, Regina thinks its still ironic for a 47 year old woman to be so knowledgeable about pleasing a man when there’s no lover in her life to benefit.
Since most men have a tendency to run away before making it as far as her bed, it is definitely no surprise to Regina when "nice guy" Ben Kaiser rejects her after discovering her identity. But it still hurts. Ben’s kisses promise fulfillment of every fantasy she’s ever had, but no matter how great he is, Regina would be the first to admit there’s no room in her crazy public life for someone as nice as Ben.
Really enjoyed this story having already read Dating a Cougar which was brilliant, would recommend
Not really a bad book, but there was nothing in it to catch or hold my interest. I didn't finish. Again, not because it was awful, but there just didn't seem a good enough reason to invest the time in listening to the end. Did not care for the narrator. Which made me even less interested in finishing.

prologue at the end.. weird!!! your going to throw that in... HATE the narrator. she sucks and saying "daughter" like she does errks me! and other words.. don't try to pronounce words so hard. yuck
Why is the prologue recorded at the end of the book??? Other than that-story is good...
Although Ms. McDonald is obviously talented with a quirky sense of humor, the basic premise of Dating Dr. Notorious was seriously ridiculous and outdated.
In this century, a female therapist specializing in sexual problems is not considered a fallen woman or prostitute, like some silly Victorian novel. Since everyone's reaction to Regina's profession was implausible, the rest of the story was repetitive and boring.
Likewise, a woman of Regina's intelligence and education having unprotected sex with a man she barely knew (Ben) was equally ridiculous. Given the reality of STDs and the availability of condoms, Regina would not have risked her health.
I would have given it all 5s but (1) the prologue was at the end of the book and (2) she is a sex therapist not a sex surrogate so what's the huge deal. Not logical but still entertaining .
Any additional comments?
Another awesome book! I love this series, but Anne Johnstonbrown lends a new perspective when you hear it read aloud. I love Donna McDonald's writing, and I'm truly enjoying the series in Audible version!
This was a re read for me, as I enjoyed the book the 1st time, and on revisiting the whole series, I wanted a refresher on the original stories I had read. I loved the audio rendition.
She did it again. It was wonderful and I highly recommend the series. It is an easy listen.
This was almost a true and full narration.
However, just like book 1, Dating a Cougar the book overall was let down by the narrator.
It was an improvement on book one but could still be better.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Absolutely! It was better than the first book and that one was good.
Who was your favorite character and why?
I did not have one favorite, I loved the friendship that existed between the women and the developing friendship between the alpha males. They were supportive but willing to laugh when one of them was acting "crazy".
Which scene was your favorite?
There were so many good moments, but I enjoyed the reactions that Regina received from her friends when they found her crying about the newswoman touching Ben.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
It was, it is a good road trip book because you don't have distractions and you can enjoy the full story.
