Lauren Hastings is finally ready to enter the real world. At twenty-six, she’s about to get her master’s in psychology, and she’s well on her way to beginning the career of her dreams—until she suffers public humiliation and has to endure something she thought she’d never have to deal with again: a part-time job.
A gig at Trinity Hospital isn’t exactly Lauren’s definition of a good time, but Dr. Scott Jacobs quickly changes her mind. He’s straight-up gorgeous, and he always gets what he wants. And that includes Lauren. It’s an ideal arrangement for both of them. No strings. Just fun—at least at first.
But feelings quickly begin to run deeper than either Lauren or Scott is willing to admit, causing issues neither of them want to confront. After all, who wants to risk the perfect relationship on something as terrifying, as messy, and as unpredictable as love?
Having read and loved all of Elizabeth Hayley's previous books, I was ecstatic and honored to receive an ARC of The Best Medicine from them and Net Galley.
Lauren is currently in graduate school for psychology when she finds herself in some financial trouble after a drunken night at a bar. She is ordered to pay the bar owner for damages as restitution. Her mom helps her out by getting her a job at the same doctor's office she works at. She meets Dr. Scott, her new employer, and there is an instant attraction between them. At first he comes off a little uptight and she thinks he is full of himself. He doesn't know she is in graduate school and he assumes she has no focus and is a slacker. As a result their relationship is very adversarial which makes for a lot of humor. It also creates a lot of sexual tension between them and it causes them to enter into a "friends with benefits" arrangement. Both of them are gun shy when it comes to relationships so this seems like the perfect solution.
I really enjoyed reading this book. I was expecting loads of humor and some seriously hot moments and this story doesn't disappoint! I can't wait for the next book in this new series! I'm giving The Best Medicine 5 stars!
