This is Necessary Medicine, by first time author M.K. York. If you are a fan of shows like Grey's Anatomy, Scrubs and ER, this book is for you! I have no doubt you will love it because a good 90% of the book is dedicated to intern Niel Carmona and how he and his friends handle 5 years as interns at a teaching hospital in California. The book is told entirely (save the epilogue) in Neil's POV so we don't get to hear what's going on with Neil's crush on veteran doctor Eli Newcombe. So, again, 90% [...]

Necessary Medicine was an interesting book by newbie author, M.K. York, and I have lots of thoughts about it. For one, I could have told you before reading the author bio at the end that the author was a doctor, or at least on the way to becoming one. As someone who has gone through dental school, which mirrors medical school in many respects, and who has had a hospital residency, which included anesthesiology, emergency medicine, and OR rotations, I recognized a kindred spirit here. The way M.K [...]

Actual rating 3.5 stars Necessary Medicine is M.K. York’s debut novel. Although I knew going in that it wasn’t heavy in the romance department, I really enjoyed the story. Neal Carmona is in medical school when he first meets Dr. Elias Newcombe at a conference. Years later, Neil ends up at the hospital where Eli is the attending cardiologist and heart transplant specialist. Although Neil is a surgical resident, he still runs into Eli a lot. What started as a crush for Neil, is turning into r [...]

1.5 starsI really liked the blurb on this and was looking forward to this book. Unfortunately the execution did not work for me at all. It was dry and filled with tedious descriptions of medical procedures, conferences and committees. It is excessively filled with medical terms and medicines and I don't know how the author expects the average to reader to understand half of what she was talking about. I work in the medical field so I did understand it and I was still bored. I was not surprised t [...]

I feel like I’ve been lied to. This book is not a romance. There’s crushing. There’s a little sex. There is five flipping year’s worth of hospital residency life filled with surgeries, conferences, and some sort of monthly diversity meetings. There’s a happily ever after but all the in between of a love story where two people meet and fall in love is missing. All of this is from Neil’s point of view until the epilogue which is Eli’s point of view. I mentioned in the above paragraph [...]

4.0 Great read with a lot of medical matters. It's a entertaining read with the slowest slow burn ever.I almost quit. Sorry but I wanted some romance and kisses and stuff. lasted and lasted. But the story kept me reading I just longed for some connection and in the meantime the pages kept turning and turning With others words it was captivated as hell :) it was good, all the medical cases were good. Everything was good onlyite slow burn.damn almost did go backwards instead of forward. And nowe s [...]

Reviewed for Just LoveI have to start off by saying that I think the publisher is doing a major disservice to the author and readers by marketing Necessary Medicine as a romance. Basically, a good 90% of it read like a very detailed memoir of a medical intern/resident, with only the last 10% dipping into romance. That’s not to say the main character Neil didn’t have a love interest throughout the length of the book – he absolutely did. But it’s difficult to consider awkward crushing and [...]

3.5*This is an exceptionally well written book, well crafted, detailed and knowledgeable about the world of medicine. I'm just not sure that it really qualifies to be designated as a romance though when the romance element of it doesn't occur until the final 20% of the book.Having said that, there is a fair bit of UST from about 30% in but, for the overwhelming majority of this story, it focusses on the difficulties of being in the final stages of training necessary to become a surgeon.Now, that [...]

4.5 stars. I completely LOVED this book. Eli is totally my new book boyfriend. lol <3 See my full review here: thenovelapproachreviews

My Review:This story is NOT a romance. I think the publisher has done it a disservice by labeling it so. And let me explain why I'm starting my review here, because do not doubtI thoroughly enjoyed this story and immersing myself into this world. Before I got to read this book I had another reviewer contact me so disappointed with this book. She and I normally have similar tastes so I went into reading this fully expecting to have to DNF it. I didn't.I loved the book, but could see why the other [...]

A great debut novel!Necessary Medicine is the first published novel by M.K. York and I liked it a lot. This book isn't your typical M/M romance story; it follows the path of medical student/intern/resident Neil Carmona. I'm not really sure how many years this book spans but it's quite a few. It's described as a "slow-burn romance" and that it is. The first kiss between the two MCs (main characters) doesn't happen until Chapter 16 (out of 26 chapters).The story contains a lot of medical terms and [...]

***4.25 stars***Note to the reader: There are a few medical acronyms and jargon throughout the story. So, if you do not like looking up words occasionally, this may not be the book for you. Okay I'm probably the outlier here, but I really enjoyed this book. Call me crazy, but I am still going to call this a romance. It might not be the cookie cutter romance that you're use to, but it is there. So, if you haven’t guess it yet this is a very slow burn. In addition, don’t expect any 'one and do [...]

Necessary Medicine is super sweet and nice and in my head that sounds like a bad thing. But it isn't. It's not bad at all just nice. To break it down a bit, this is a long story with a super slow burn of attraction between Neil and Eli. And just to say, I had a hard time at first separating the two, only because their names sound so similar in my head. But this is all from the POV of Neil. Anyway, the slow burn is so slow. It lasts the entire book. When they finally get together I thought I woul [...]

I am so torn on this. I enjoyed it, and I didn't enjoy it. I liked the characters. I like the couples. I liked the supporting characters. I like that it covered years, in a way that didn't feel rushed or like I was missing anything. It allowed the characters time to develop a relationship. But it also took ENTIRELY too long to get the pairing going beyond the possibility. It's an interesting look into med school/interning/attending. But I wish the relationship had been a little more present on p [...]

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.Told from Neil's point of view, the story takes us from the first time Neil's sees Eli in a coffee shop right before a lecture where Eli is the guest lecturer, to the end of his residency.We quickly follow Neil to residency where we see the difficulties he faces and how hard you have to work to become a surgeon. Trying to find time to sleep is hard enough let alone trying to have a social life or any kind of work life balanc [...]

I'm so glad I bought this book!I really liked this story because:- it's fun to read about other people's profession, especially a doctor- the author immersed me in medicine world without drowning me; yes, there's a lot of medical jargon I didn't know, which I could google, but I didn't (except for ruptured triple A, and consequently, Marfan syndrome and Ehlers-Danlos syndrome) because it didn't detract me from the story- there's only a small number of characters here, and the story was really fo [...]

I was given a copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads. This is one of the more realistic medical stories that I’ve read. The book follows Neil through the ups and downs of his grueling four year surgical residency. The slow burn romance between Neil and Eli, one of the senior doctors in his hospital runs alongside the story of Neil’s medical career. I found the medical details in this story more successful than the romance. Neil’s grueling schedule brought back vivid and unwe [...]

While I quite enjoyed it, it's not romance as readers of mm expect. The slow build is almost too tense, and it's possible many will abandon it because Neil and Eli barely interact for the first quarter.I liked Neil's narration, as I found him genuine and kind.But is it enough?His interactions with other secondary characters reveal a lot of personality and emotion, but there's very little plot to deal with.The last quarter is the best. Eli is a flawed, charismatic character. It's easy to see why [...]

Necessary Medicine is by a new author, M.K. York. I have noted mixed reviews on the book While I can see why others weren’t captivated by this story, mainly because while it is a ultimately a romance, it is even more a story of becoming a doctor. There are a lot of medical details, hospital workings and the absolute exhaustion that comes from residency. For me, a fan of medical autobiographies, this made it even better. I loved the medical details, the intricacies of Neil and his friends survi [...]

3.5 Stars.Neal Carmona is a med student when his path first crosses with Dr. Eli Newcombe, renown heart transplant surgeon. Neal immediately recognizes that Eli is exactly his type: older, prematurely grey and way-smart. Not like anything would ever come of his attraction; Dr. Newcombe is giving a guest lecture at his university.Fast forward a couple of years. Neal's graduated and beginning a residency in the San Fran area. He's never hidden his sexuality and he's not going to start now. He want [...]

3.5 stars

Necessary Medicine is a stunning debut novel by M.K. York. It delves into the private and professional lives of doctors in a west coast teaching hospital. If you enjoy TV shows such as Grey’s Anatomy or the older series Scrubs you will love this novel. Part medical drama, part romance, this is a sensational story that is enjoyable and exciting.We follow Neil through his five years as a surgical resident, facing his doubts about his abilities as a doctor but more so as a human being trying to f [...]

A Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words ReviewRating: 4.25 stars out of 5For the full review, visit wp/p220KL-9Gy on 2/18From that review: "Well, I just adored Necessary Medicine by M.K. York, probably because it hit so close to home as a close family relative lived with us during his residency here. During that time period I got an up close look at his hours, his total exhaustion and the dedication it took to get him through those years (and all those rotations). York knows that world intimately a [...]

I really wanted to like this book, but there was so much medical jargon and speak that I felt it just took over the story. I found that the greater part of the plot was the life of a resident rather than a romance. I couldn't take to this book it wasn't for me

Necessary Medicine by M.K. YorkSource: NetgalleyMy Rating: 2½/5 starsMy Review: The synopsis for Necessary Medicine offered a whole host of promise that the book itself simply didn’t deliver on. Here’s the list . . . . .Neil: To a great extent, Necessary Medicine is Neil’s story, his journey from his first days in medical school through the end of his residency. To become a doctor is a selfless act and Neil’s journey is full of hardship, ups, downs, no sleep, and the lapsing of nearly r [...]

Necessary Medicine, by debut male/male author M.K. York, accurately depicts the life of a medical student with their long hours, hard work, and dedication. Along the way the main characters, Neil Carmona and Eli Newcombe, find love and companionship amongst the trials and tribulations of everyday life.To get the most enjoyment from this book you should be a fan of medical dramas. It’s obvious the author is in the profession as there are a lot of medical terms tossed around and built into the p [...]

It begins with a glance between a young surgical resident and a visiting lecturer. Neil and his crush Eli end up working together in the same hospital and a very slow burn between these two begins.Oh, I got why they didn't feel they could act on their attraction to one another. I thought that the consideration of their respective positions in the hospital was a good one, and it was nice (in a way) to have the main characters care about the ethics of them getting together. The hospital action als [...]

The intro to the description of Necessary Medicine said 'slow-burn romance' - which is both accurate and an understatement. I'm a really, really patient reader, but I realize that other readers might not be. For that reason, I (and other conscientious reviewers) have found it necessary to point out that the 'romance' aspect of Necessary Medicine is not the focus. The focus is on the the development of the characters' relationships (not just between Eli and Neil) as well as a glimpse of what it t [...]

2,5 starsI wanted not rating this book with two stars but really , this story isn't about romance as promised the plot. It's more a diary wrote by Neal through his residency program. Little romance and passion and a lot of medical terminology that I didn't understand as also surgical operations described so well but without sense for me. It was tedious, and boring and so long even more because little we could see of Neal and Eli relationship, five years but only the last days and pages were abou [...]
