Dr. Feelgood – A Dreamspinner Press Anthology ~ Review by Leisa

imageVery, very good anthology full of absolutely wonderful short stories!

Title: Dr. Feelgood

Author: A Dreamspinner Press Anthology

Publisher: Dreamspinner Press

My Rating: 4.5 of 5 stars

From the Publisher:

Whether they’re paramedics, nurses, therapists, doctors, or even actors who play them on TV, the men in the medical profession must contend with job stress and long hours that can make finding love a challenge. These dedicated professionals aid patients from the severely injured to those just needing some help with a bath, and along the way find creative ways to release some tension, reconnect with past partners, and even forge something that might last a lifetime.

Injuries, huge workloads, dedication to duty, self-doubt, and fear of coming out of the closet are only some of the obstacles standing in the way of the men committed to easing pain and those in need of treatment. But with hard work, some humor, some steamy on- and off-the-job trysts, plenty of patience, and open hearts, doctors and patients alike can find the healing they need, whether it comes from a lifelong commitment or a quickie in the staff room.

The men in this anthology are looking for relief, and they’re in luck—the doctor is in.

My View

Dr. Feelgood is a tasty and delightful anthology of stories involving doctors, paramedics, therapists and others in the medical field. All of the stories are quite good, and some of them are so lovely that I wanted them to be much longer just for the sheer joy of continuing to read them. Sara York’s story, First and Last, was my favorite short story of the lot. It was touching, sexy, and York’s story alone would make reading this anthology worthwhile. Equally pleasing is that there wasn’t a single story in the anthology that I did not enjoy. Also, the cover art, while relatively simple, is just perfect.

The best things about reading an anthology are that you not only get to read great short stories by authors that you already know and love, but you receive an introduction to excellent authors that are new to you. The Dr. Feelgood anthology has certainly added to my list of new authors that I will be watching to read their future works. I recommend Dr. Feelgood as an anthology that offers a smorgasbord of wonderful short stories that are sure to delight!

  1. Thanks for sharing your opinion. I read a lot of anthologies and I already put this down as a book to buy but it was interesting to see which story you enjoyed most.
