The Best Medicine ~ Elizabeth Hayley

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?


This was a fantastic introduction to a new series.

What do you do when the lines you drew in the sand suddenly become blurred?? Well duh. You freak out! 

Dr. Scott Jacobs is absolutely nothing like what Lauren was expecting when she took her mom up on the offer to pay off her newly acquired "debt" with a part time job. Lauren is gorgeous, she's one of those girls that you just know you'd be best friends with and probably end up in jail with by the end of the night. So it's hard to believe that she's also in school to be a psychiatrist.  Scott was certainly shocked. 

Scott Jacobs is a player. He's also a sexy hot 29 year old genius doctor. He never spends the night. Never hangs out. And definitely never brings a woman home to his house. So when he proposes that he & Lauren hang out and explore this chemistry between them, he certainly never expected to wake up one day and be sad she's not there, or to realize that they do have... a relationship. 

Elizabeth Hayley has the beginning of a gold mine here. With Lauren's out right ridiculous mouth - you never know what she is going to say; Scott's angsty world; their insane crazy friends and family. This series is going to be phenomenal. I can not wait to find out who book 2 is about, but I have my suspicions. 

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."
