The Infamous Ellen James by N.A. Alcorn

Goodreads Summary
Meet twenty-eight year old Ellen James. A sarcastic, feisty, foul-mouthed ER Nurse. She is snarky, sassy, and sometimes crudely inappropriate. After a terrible breakup with her fiancé, Ellen has promised herself that she will never make the mistake of falling for another man again… and physicians, well she’s more than written them off.Once she meets sexy Trauma Surgeon, Dr. Trent Hamilton, this promise is unbelievably hard to keep. This too-hot-for-Ellen’s-own-good man is undeniably sexy and down-right irresistible. He leaves her breathless, speechless, and irritatingly turned on. He makes her fantasize about him in all kinds of dirty, inappropriate ways.

With the help of her obnoxious, and often times hilarious best friend Amy, Ellen will find herself in several crazy, embarrassing situations.

This is a story of friendship, love and how one very sarcastic woman can find the strength to pick up the pieces after having her heart broken.


5 stars


First and foremost, this book is HILARIOUS!!!  Rip-roaring funny.  Vulgarity.  Sarcasm.  Hilarity ensues.

We meet Ellen James, ER Nurse, while she’s doing a presentation at a conference in Nashville.  While doing her presentation, a photo of her wearing a 12 inch vibrator appears.  Smug faces ensue.  Fast forward…

Dr. Trent Hamilton comes to Ellen’s hospital as a visiting trauma surgeon.  What Ellen doesn’t know, is Trent came to her hospital because of her.  She is coming out of a relationship where she finds her fiancée in bed with another woman.  She is vulnerable and afraid to open her heart again.  She and Trent, however, are a perfect match.

Ellen lives with her best friend Amy.  She and Amy have an interesting relationship.  They call each other the funniest names (labia face).  They are hilarious together.  I loved Amy.  She was the best!!

There were some things about this book that were predictable.  I loved that it was told in the first person.  Made it so much funnier.  Overall, this book is really, really funny and a must read.  I would highly recommend.
