Overview

Dr. Houston Hayes has never had trouble maintaining his professional distance with both patients and co-workers...until he meets resident Josie Adkins. Every time the tiny tornado of cheery clumsiness drops a chart in his presence, he's treated to a view that makes him extremely interested in her bones. Jumping them, that is. For a man who prides himself on control at all times, this is getting to be a problem. And problems always have solutions...

All her life, Josie has wanted to be a surgeon. But how can she do that while she's suffering from the debilitating Dr. Hayes Induced Dropping Medical Equipment Syndrome? Honestly, with those ice blue eyes and powerful shoulders dipping down to a -- whoops, there goes the blood pressure cuff -- what's a girl to do? And then Dr. Hayes shocks her by prescribing a very sexy cure: one night of sheet-burning passion to erase the sexual tension for both of them. But only one night...he won't need more than that...

Suddenly, Josie has her mission -- a chance to prove the arrogant Dr. Hayes wrong. One night with her will never be enough if she has her way. And soon, both doctors may be falling into a desire deeper than any they've ever known...one that makes them hungry for more....

    Sizzling

    Erin McCarthy realy delivers with this sizzling novel filled with lust, want, and need. Josie and Houstan get together because of a silent want for one another but soon realize that just one night together in the bedroom is not enough. McCarthy jam packs this novel with a lot of sexual scenes (some that take up chapters) but really delivers as the romance ignites. A very lusty chick lit read for all fans!

    ERIN McCARTHY DELIVERS AGAIN!

    I absolutely loved this book. I will read it over and over. Houston is a man who knows what he wants, and what he doesn't...or so he thinks. Josie knows what she wants, but has trouble getting it. Always having to prove herself in a world of men, and superiority complexes is getting old, but she won't be able to prove a thing until she figures out how to stop dropping things every single time Houston is near. Her klutziness is threatening her job, and drawing more than a little attention to herself. When she gets cornered in a closet and propositioned, she has to decide if she should follow her mind or her wayward hormones. Of course the hormones win, and she and Houston start something neither can back away from, until he's put in a position where he can't help himself. This book was such a fun read, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Happy reading!

    Houston is Sizzling Romances Reviewer Choice Winner!

    <p> Dr. Houston Hayes reduces Josie Adkins to a simpering, clumsy puddle. She¿s on a surgical rotation, and Houston cannot take Josie serious, as she seems completely inept. This doesn¿t match her high IQ, and her amazing grades. Yet Josie wants to be a surgeon, knows she can be a good surgeon, so she falls under his tutelage. Now, only if she can stop dropping things... <p> What is it about new resident Josie Adkins that makes Houston's blood boil - and his body rise to the occasion? What will the little minx think when she realizes all he can think of is getting her into bed? But no matter how attracted he is to her, he has two rules that he has no intention of breaking - no long-term relationships, and no fooling around with any hospital employee. <p> While Houston finds Josie inept, she knows the real problem. It is her attraction to him that is so powerful; it leaves her shaking. Besides, she¿s always been called the two p's - perky and plump ¿ what would sexy Dr. Hayes want with her? <p> It doesn¿t take long for Houston to realize that the brainy Josie's heart is not in surgery. And, Houston is only a man, a man with a problem. He knows he has to have at least one taste of the sexy Josie. Even while waiting for their first assignation, Josie can't help but wonder with the intensely handsome Houston could possibly want from a woman like her. He is so sexy, so charming, he could have any woman he wants. <p> Erin McCarthy has written another winner. Her characters play off of each other in a smart, quick way, as in all of her books. Even when two people fight an incredible chemistry, no matter how intelligent they are, they seem to believe that fighting it off will work. But will it? Or how long before they realize that their paths came together for a reason? <p> Denial is not only a river in Egypt. Josie realizes that when Houston, an avid surfer, is a victim of a vicious shark attack. She needs to be around Houston, and he realizes he needs Josie to be around him. It is now that both of their futures in surgery are about to take a rapid turn. This allows more time for them to develop the sensual, passionate relationship that has indeed won over. Btw, has Houston given up surfing? You¿ll have to read HOUSTON, WE HAVE A PROBLEM to find out how Houston got back on his surfboard. What a titillating way to overcome his fear, thanks to Josie¿s presence at the right time. Also, the question about Josie¿s choice of career comes up more than once, showing Houston¿s intuitive nature. <p> Ms. McCarthy is an amazing writer. No doubt about that. When it comes to choosing a Reviewers¿ Choice for Sizzling Romances, we look at certain characteristics a book contains that may appeal to the reader. Evidence shows that your readers love your work, and when you create characters such as Josie and Houston, as well as some warm supporting characters, you make certain to bring your story right to the reader, making it a real drama, one thoroughly enjoyable, accentuated by your trade-mark humor. <p> (For Sizzling Romances, September 2004)

    Sexy and Entertaining-- A perfect book!!

    Houston is an arrogant, but oh so sexy doctor who is attracted to a co-worker, Josie. Josie is a real woman with curves and all who can¿t believe what Houston is suggesting. Josie finds she must balance her attraction with her insecurities when dealing with Houston. Events in the story make both Josie and Houston let go of the past and come together for a future. The journey along the way is so very entertaining with plenty of steamy scenes. Erin McCarthy has become one of my new favorite authors. Her books are very sensual and full of characters you love.

    Highly Recommended!!

    Houston's problem is he can't keep his eyes off Josie's backside, and she's so nervous around Houston, she can't help but drop everything when he's around. The sexual tension has been building for some time and Houston's solution is to have one night to get it out of their system. But one night will never be enough. Josie's lovable and outgoing personality is just what Houston needs to loosen up and enjoy his life, and Houston's personality is just what Josie needs to gain confidence in herself and her ability to become a great surgeon. Mrs. McCarthy's style of writing puts you right in the book with her characters and will not let you put this book down until Houston's and Josie's problems are no more.

    Way to go Ms. McCarthy! Another great read!

    Dr. Houston Hayes has a couple of rules for himself and one of them is that he never gets involved with a co-worker. But ever since he has started working with resident Josie Adkins, he can't seem to think of anything else but getting personal with her! His attraction to Josie is driving him nuts. If he can get her out of his system with a short fling, he knows he can get back to normal at work. But will Josie agree to a fling? Little does he know that Josie has had the hots for Houston from the first moment she saw him. Too bad he makes her a nervous wreck with his distant, controlled attitude and intense stare, not to mention his oh-so-sexy body. She turns into a major klutz whenever he's around! Acting like a fool whenever he's around has got to stop! Maybe a little personal attention is just what the doctor ordered. But will a short fling be enough?~~~~~~~~~~~~ This is one of the best books of the summer! Erin McCarthy combines humor, witty dialogue, very likable characters and extremely steamy love scenes making HOUSTON, WE HAVE A PROBLEM a definite keeper! Houston is one hot doctor! I wouldn't mind checking out his bedside manner! Josie was a wonderful heroine. She was klutzy and cute and some of the thoughts that she had made me laugh out loud! I loved how she was a woman with curves and real issues about those curves. The sexual tension between Houston and Josie was so hot, I swear it made my heart pound faster and made my breath catch!~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I've been looking forward to reading this book for a long time and it didn't disappoint me at all! I was really sad to see it end. Ms. McCarthy is on my auto-buy list. If you haven't read Erin McCarthy's books yet, don't wait, run to the store and pick this one up!

    Houston is HOT!

    Houston may have a problem, but readers won't with this wonderful, sexy story. When we first meet Dr Houston Hayes, he is tempted beyond reason by the lush curves of resident Josie Adkins, who is constantly within his reach. With her penchant for dropping things, his normally professional mind is laden with erotic fantasies when faced with her charms. How is a doctor supposed to keep his mind on work when faced with such temptation? Dr. Houston Hayes is so hot that he makes Josie nervous. And when she's nervous, she drops things. Noted for her competence and wonderful way with the patients, this clumsy turn of events is beginning to wear on Josie's nerves. All her life she's struggled for people to see beyond the dimples and perky attitude. How can she be taken seriously as a surgeon if she can't even hold onto a flipchart? Then Houston proposes what he believes to be a practical solution: one night of passion to ease the sexual tension between them and let things get back to normal. After all, it shouldn't take more than that, and as long as they both agree to the terms, no one is in danger of losing their heart. That's what he thinks! Houston doesn't count on the way Josie makes him feel, and she's not sure she can pretend nothing's happened between them. When events occur that have both of them questioning their chosen paths, it becomes obvious that the only problem they have is not following their hearts. Erin McCarthy has done it again! Houston is a sexy loner who doesn't believe he's worthy of a long-term relationship and Josie is intelligent and charming, blessed with a generous heart yet unaware of her own appeal. Kudos to Erin for creating a heroine we can all relate to on some level. It makes their 'happily ever after' that much sweeter. And anxious for McCarthy's next book!

    An Excellent Read!

    You get it all in this book,humor,concern,and hot sex! When I started reading this book I could NOT put it down! Houston is a wonderfully ALPHA male surgeon,while Josie is a smart but clumsy resident surgeon who is driving him nuts. Houston decides he needs just one night of sex with Josie to get her out of his system.And YOWZA the sparks fly! Add in a little surfing and a shark attack,Josie and Houston will touch your heart. You'll get a small glimpse of Sara from Erin's story Blue Crush in Perfect For The Beach,which means if you have it you'll want to do a reread and if you don't,you'll want to rush out and buy it.

    Houston is Awesome

    Erin McCarthy¿s Houston, We Have A Problem is another sensational novel. Dr. Josie Adkins is driving fellow Dr. Houston Hayes out of his mind. Houston can barely keep his body under control when Josie is near. If only she wouldn¿t keep dropping things in his presence. Sure he could ignore the view but Houston is not a stupid man. Josie Adkins has always wanted to be a surgeon, just like her late father. She keeps telling herself she needs to keep her thoughts on medicine and not the hottie Houston Hayes. Houston proposed that he has the ideal solution to their mutual attraction. One night of sensual pleasure and they both will be cured. Josie thinks this is her opportunity to show Houston that one night is never going to be enough. Houston, We Have A Problem is one more outstanding book from Erin McCarthy. Ms. McCarthy writes such amazingly funny, steamy and compassionate stories. Her characters stay with you long after you are finished reading.
