My life is ordinary, steady, predictable. And I’m okay with that. Working long shifts at the hospital is all the excitement I need.

But when a simple rescue-attempt goes wrong, I find myself in the arms of an arrogant, yet sexy FBI agent.

Kai Evans is what I’d call way out of my league. Yet, we end up dating. Sort of. That’s if you count fast-bike escapes and kissing while bullets fly around us as a date.

While Kai tries to keep me safe and alive, Tyler Moore–an ex FBI agent with a smart mouth–slithers into my life. Turns out, Kai and Taylor have a history. The kind that can’t be erased with a simple handshake.

Now it’s all about settling the score between them, and Taylor has the perfect weapon to use against Kai…

Me.

📚 Booktube Feature? I talked about this book in my September Wrap Up Video

This is my first experience with a Katerina Baker book and my only wish that she becomes a better writer.

Under The Scrubs is a romantic thriller that promises suspense, adventure, and passion. I wish I had all that but all I got was a whiny and rambly lead, that is making me hate that first person POV even more.

The plot could have been interesting and should have been filled with action but it failed to deliver that, in my opinion. It was so hard to connect with the characters because it was difficult to imagine that they were real. If you have an OB/GYN character, you should know that they are experienced in dealing with babies, unlike our lead character here.

Overall, this book failed to satisfy my romance loving heart. And again, what a big disappointment.
