Title: The Best Medicine
Series: Strictly Business #1
Author: Elizabeth Hayley
Release Date: June 2, 2015
The first novel in a sparkling and sexy new contemporary romance series about four best friends looking for love in all the right places—and the one woman who discovers that it takes more than an impeccable bedside manner to make dreams come true…
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?
ADD TO GOODREADS
This was my first book by this hilarious writing duo and it will not be my last. The Best Medicine was fantastic! It was the perfect blend of funny, sexy, emotional, and hot!
“Let’s see how wet you are for me.” He plunged a finger inside, then two. “Goddamn, you’re soaked. I’m dying to fuck you.” “Then fuck me,” Lauren countered.
Lauren is a graduate student who ends up working at Dr. Scott’s practice thanks to a misunderstanding. Her mom pulled some strings and got her the job but what Lauren didn’t expect the attraction between her and Scott.
“Lauren, I swear to God, if you don’t jump on that like a trampoline, I’m going to have to rethink our friendship,” Simone threatened.”
Dr. Scott Jacobs is many things; a genius, a dirty-talker, possessive. But he hides scars from his childhood that make him live by a certain set of rules. He’s never broken any of his rules, until Lauren entered his life. Suddenly, he doesn’t know who he is anymore.
“He was again overwhelmed by how deeply she seemed to see him. When she looked at him, she seemed to be dissecting him—as if she were trying to fit pieces of a puzzle together. It surprised him how badly he wanted her to figure him out.”
The two enter a physical-only relationship, but a friendship quickly forms as well. When things start to get messy, will they run or stick it out? You will have to read to find out and believe me you won’t be disappointed.
I couldn’t put this book down! It made me laugh, cry and need to change my panties. I loved everything about it, especially all of the secondary characters. I can’t wait to find out who the next book is about, hopefully Alex and Cass.
~ Review by Tiffany
Elizabeth Hayley is actually "Elizabeth" and "Hayley," two friends who love reading romance novels to obsessive levels. This mutual love prompted them to put their English degrees to good use by penning their own. The product is Pieces of Perfect, their debut novel. They learned a ton about one another through the process, like how they clearly share a brain and have a persistent need to text each other constantly (much to their husbands' chagrin).
"Elizabeth" lives with her husband, daughter, and nutjob of a dog. "Hayley" lives with her husband, son, and her own crazy dog. Thankfully, their children are still too young to read.
Elizabeth Hayley's writing motto is best captured by the words of Patrick Dennis: "I always start with a clean piece of paper and a dirty mind."
