GENRE: Contemporary Romance
Lena Shapiro. Successful surgeon. Dutiful daughter. She sacrificed her personal life to build her career and take care of her mother and sister. Now thirty-nine and single, she watches her peers pairing off and having kids, and wonders if she missed out on her own chance at happiness.
Assigned to mentor a visiting colleague, Lena finds herself falling for the man instead. But Adam Sterling is all wrong for her: he’s too young, too arrogant, and too willing to push personal and professional boundaries. And he’s leaving L.A. for a job on the opposite coast.
With the date of Adam’s departure looming ever nearer, will Lena retreat to the safety of her familiar solitary life, or will she take a chance on an uncertain future with the man who might make her dreams come true?
(Please note: This is a steamy contemporary romance that contains mature themes and explicit content, meant for adults 18 and over. It is a stand-alone novel, with no cliff-hangers, and a guaranteed HEA.)

“The thing about Westport,” Adam said, “is that no one outside of Connecticut’s ever heard of it. And people from outside the U.S. are like, Connecti-what? So in the end I usually say I’m from just outside New York, because everyone knows New York, right?”
She paused, chopsticks halfway to her mouth. “I’ve never actually been to New York.”
“You’re kidding,” he said. “Never?”
“We didn’t have the money growing up. And once there was money, I didn’t have the time.”
“But…what about vacations?”
“Welcome to my world. It’s called private practice. You eat what you kill—or rather, don’t kill.” She smiled and shrugged. “I’ve taken a few weekends here and there. Santa Barbara, San Diego. Local stuff.”
If his brows climbed any higher, they’d disappear from his face. “Damn,” he said. “We’ve got to broaden your horizons.”
Lena didn’t answer. Travel was something that other people did. Classmates who didn’t need full scholarships to Harvard-Westlake, who skied every winter in Aspen and Telluride, and split their summers between Europe and Hawaii. College roommates who could spare a gap year to explore Indonesia or climb Kilimanjaro.
In school, and later in residency, she’d promised herself: someday she would see the world. Or at least some small portion of it beyond California.
And now, here she was, a decade later, on the cusp of a major life change that would make travel next to impossible.

Oh, Baby! is part of the series, A Prescription: Romance! It is, also the first book I have read by Jill Blake and it will not be the last. Even though this book is part of a series, I believe it can be read as a stand alone. I did not feel as though I was missing anything by not reading the other books in the series. I found this story to be fun, delightful and romantic.
I am giving Oh, Baby! three and a half stars. I recommend it to readers who love romantic stories and do not mind if it has some mature themes. I would love to go back and see what happened prior to this one from the A Prescription: Romance! series.
I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
