#Review #Novella #Medical – Joshua, Love in Scrubs book #1 by AJ Renee


Joshua (Love in Scrubs Book 1)

From the author of the St. Fleur series comes a fun tale of finding love in the emergency room. 

The single life had been treating Hazel Rivera better than she’d anticipated. With no one to report to, she did as she pleased, which included if and when she’d have a man in her bed. She felt no shame in satisfying her own needs, but when toy-play goes wrong, she earns herself a visit to the emergency room. 

Squirming in pain, the last thing she expected was to find a sexy nurse assigned to her room. She could lose herself in a man like him—sinful eyes, full lips, and a kindhearted attitude—but before she can catch Joshua Bradley again, she’s sent home. 

When life hands them a second chance, will they risk their hearts? 


I purchased this book.

I have known this author for a couple years but haven’t been able to grab a book and read it.  Well this year on vacation I made time read a couple of her new series novellas.  I love novellas and the quick story they provide especially when a thunderstorm ruins your vacation plans for the day.

When this book started, I was in total stitches and could totally relate to what Hazel was going through.  She is a strong woman who doesn’t really need a man or the heartbreak associated with them to get what she needs.  She “takes care of business” on her own.  When she has a slight mishap that sends her to the ER, she comes across Nurse Hottie AKA Joshua.

Joshua is blown over by the confident and sexy hot mess who came to the ER with some hives happening.  He wishes he could have the ability to ask her out but dating patients is a motto he follows in life after a mishap with a fellow co-worker.

After a month, Joshua and Hazel run into each other and the sparks are there like they were in the ER Room.  The story is hilariously sexy and full of chemistry.  Seeing the sparks between the two flies along with the ability to work out their fears and anxieties.

I loved the epilogue like CRAZY!!  It was a perfect mix and great to let us know about the HEA we know Hazel and Joshua have but in a different viewpoint.
